Most 3D TV sets come with two pairs of glasses. The problem becomes more obvious when one breaks or if more than two are needed. For example a family of four will require two more pairs which are not provided initially when the TV is purchased. The same thing goes when having a few friends over to watch a movie. To avoid such situations in which viewing a 3D movie with several other people is not an option is worth checking out some aftermarket models or glasses that are made by the manufacturer who also made the TV.
