Would rather pay $290 than buy it from that website, sounds like a website made for people specially googling for cheap 3D glasses.

Or if you know someone in US/UK get them to send it to you. Best option
http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-SSG-3700CR-Active-Glasses-Compatible/dp/B004PYEBYI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1314008971&sr=8-1

Would be wise to find out if samsung nz will give you warranty support before buying.

I have and a few of my mates have, bought Samsung SSG series glasses from Amazon. I would recommend. Not sure about the warranty though, but at a 3rd the price who cares? Just buy some more! I think I got 4 day shipping too.

http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-SSG-3300GR-Active-Glasses-Compatible/dp/B004PYEBZ2/ref=sr_1_8?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1314015051&sr=1-8

I really want to get the SSG inductive charger too, it looks cool!

Amazon.com doesn't ship these items to NZ - not really keen to use shipto.

Can get a 3 Pair set from ebay (south korea) shipped for $170 NZ - going to give it a go next week.

Sorry, Amazon does use many merchants though, so try another one. I have bought these a month or so ago, and used my NZ credit card and normal shipping, so you don't need shipito or the like.

Wow! Knock that price down, I got mne for $140 for the blu-ray starter pack, with my TV from Harveys.  I even got the TV cheaper than Trade(same time as teh JBHifi trade+15 deal).   If they are trying to get $290 out of you, I'd say get some off Ebay, then get some 3d movies later on

You may have bought different glasses than the OP though...
The ones jake18 has listed are the top of the line versions with weighted 'blobs' at the back.
Personally, the BluRay disc / glasses combo pack would be the best bet in my book.

I ended up buying the 5 pack Samsung SSG-3100GB 3D glasses from ebay last night. NZ$250 incl Fed-Ex 2 business day shipping! Same cost for 5 3D glasses here is $750 via DSE.

Thanks for your recommendation of the Samsung 3D glasses website jake18. I ordered 3 pairs of Samsung 3D glasses and a wifi dongle for the blu-ray player last Wednesday and they arrived today. They threw in a bunch of spare batteries for the glasses too. The cost for all of that was less than 1 pair of the glasses (same model) from Noel Leemings. All items are the real deal genuine Samsung parts and work perfectly..

I bought some Samsung Bluetooth glasses (SSG-3050GB) from this seller on eBay:
http://myworld.ebay.com/dream-seller/

Shipping is pretty slow but cheap. The glasses work fine and appear to be genuine Samsung. They are a bit lighter in weight than the SSG-3100 and I think the temples work better for people who need to wear regular eyeglasses as well, but they don't cut out ambient side light the way the SSG-3100s do and the kids say they look "a lot geekier". :)

Price including shipping was $US23.60 for one unit, $US$45 for two. Batteries are 8 for about $2 on Dealextreme.

That is dirt cheap, nice work. We are so ripped off for 3D glasses in NZ... thankfully there's always the internet.
