Both are outstanding for the value, but how can you realistically expect it to provide an identical 3D experience than a VT50 or say Samsung plasma equivilient with an OPPO player? Majority of cross talk is due to limitations of the tech you are using. The less expensive the tech, the more limitations it will have. Try viewing 3D on a properly ISF calibrated VT50 connected to an OPPO 103 or 105 and you will not find a better 3D image from any TV brand, make or model. If after viewing that and you still think it is garbage.... than you my friend are $#!t out of luck as the only way to get a better 3D image is to own your own IMAX theater.
Perhaps...but then if this is the best available for 1k+, they should leave 3D out and reserve it for the more expensive panels, as this is unacceptable...users accepting this are fools to allow companies such leniency.
And that also means you are agreeing, this is an acceptable 3D image....it's not acceptable at any price when it's unwatchable...which this is. Again, my cheap (less than half the price a year ago) Visio provides a better experience...regardless of tech used.
Calibration is not needed to get an acceptable 3D image. Otherwise, explain yourself/provide backup articles supporting your claim.
VT50 should provide the same 3D image (at least cross-talk wise) as this ST50. Otherwise, explain yourself/provide backup articles supporting your claim.
OPPO should not resolve cross-talk when watching 3D, especially compared iwth the PS3... regardless of it's age. Otherwise, explain yourself/provide backup articles supporting your claim.
Show me a single comparison of the OPPO against a PS3 that shows reduced cross-talk...even minimal differences in cross-talk, and I will go buy one and test it myself the day you post it. If the cross-talk is resolved, I will happily keep my set and gladly edit/update my original post and advertise myself as the fool I would be.
So far, my search on OPPO vs PS3 brings up forums discussing faster load times and better up-scaling of DVD/low-res content...big deal.
Something you need to remember, these modern signals are digital (NOT ANALOG), they are either there, or they are not.... the tech isn't going to make a difference as far as displaying the 3D image...it comes down to the TV/glasses...period.
You people need to back up your claims with facts, otherwise, you are wasting everyone's time.
