I see its been awhile since anyone posted in this thread. I picked one of these babies up 3 weeks ago and I have been very satisfied. I've been eying the 3dxl since it first came out but there were other things that needed upgrading in my home theater first and at that time 3d was still a new novelty....not much content....fast forward 2 years and there still isn't a lot of content, lol. But it has expanded. Nonetheless I've been very pleased with this box. I'm using it with a PS3 and HD65 projector on a 120" screen. And I can honestly say I think the 3d experience beats my local theater. Colors are great. Effects are great. I'm using a 120" screen. For the most part brightness is not an issue but I did struggle a little with Amazing Spiderman which is a mostly dark movie. But I'm happy to say I was able to leave all of my 2d settings the same in 3d with the exception of brightness and Brilliant Color....both were kicked up a few notches....and that got me a great 3d picture. So for anyone out there thats debating over getting this box since its discontinued......I say buy it now! I was able to get mine from eBay for a little over $100 and that included the Optoma ZD101 glasses. Horrible glasses that hurt my nose and were uncomfortable. So I would recommend the True Depth DLP Link glasses. They are lighter, more comfortable and rechargeable and easily fit over regular glasses. Another thing I like about this box is the fact that it may allow you to hold on to your 1.3 receiver a little longer! The 1.3 output on the 3dxl worked fine with my Harman Kardon which allowed me to still use my receiver for my switching etc BUT a disadvantage of hitting the 3dxl first is the fact that it only outputs in 2 channel pcm.....so no surround sound. Not even lossy Dolby Digital.....so I'm still running through my receiver but I'm using optical for my sound on my ps3....will do the same with my cable box once I decide to get cable again, lol. As far as picture quality it is very hard for me to tell the difference between 720p 3d and 1080p 3d.....yes 720p should be softer looking but everything I've watched looks pretty darn sharp and clear. So I would highly recommend this box and a 3d ready dlp projector to anyone wanting to jump into 3d for as cheap as possible. you can get the 3dxl for $250.....or less if you're willing to wait and search......plus a hd66 for around 350. Add in 4 pairs of true depth glasses for $200 and you got a full setup for $800. Not bad at all.....even cheaper if you already have a 3d ready projector lying around. True the Optoma hd33 is only 1100 but add in the glasses and that takes you to 1300. And thats for the cheapest 3d projector thats 1080p. If you want one with more mounting flexibility with lens shift etc then you're looking at $1600 for last years Mitsubishi model or $2300 for this years model.....And at least $3000 for a JVC with 3d. So IMO $800 isn't bad if you're starting from scratch. You can use the money you save to get a nice 2d projector for everyday watching if you want 1080p and don't already have one. I'm happy to say that the 3dxl has gotten rid of my 3d upgrade hunger. I love DLP but I've always wanted to try a Lcos projector......well now I can pick up a nice JVC 2d one and not have to worry about selling my leg just to get a 3d one. LOL. Is this little box worth it? Yes! Is 3d on a huge screen better than 3d on a flat screen? Heck yes! Is this box getting harder to find? yes it is. Am i about to go enjoy some more 3d? Yes! lol.
