- 3m50 between my W1070 and the screen
- non dedicated room (our leaving room)
- non calibrated W1070 (actually I manually adjusted the contrast, light and gamma using a THX BluRay)
So on Avatar 3D (only watched 30min or so):
- no red light or red taint at all,
- no sync issue, it worked right from the moment I turned them on,
- very good 3D experience, at least as good as my best theatre experience.
I did not play with the 3D settings as I did not have time to do so. I might try when I'll receive the two other 3D glasses.
At last I found some time to test both glasses:
1) VIP 3D DLP-Link 3D Glasses
2) the 2X New 144Hz Tech for BenQ Optoma Sharp Acer Dell 3D DLP-Link Projector Glasses
I performed the test on the following install:
- PS3 > Denon X4000 > BenQ W1070 > grey screen (0.8 gain), manually calibrated with the AVS HD DVD calibration disk,
- sitting at 3.50m from a 2.60m screen,
- Avatar 3D
The result, it is almost a DRAW:
- both glasses are quite confortable,
- both glasses could have wider lenses to avoid "seing" the sides og the glasses,
- both glasses synched perfectly and very fast, I never lost connection,
- both glasses are correctly removing the "red tint" that some of you described.
But as I said, only almost:
- the VIP are battery powered, while the other one is re-chargeable with micro USB,
- the VIP are a little bit darker (a very tiny little bit only),
- the VIP are a bit more confortable.
In the end if I had to buy more I would go with the "New 144Hz Tech for BenQ Optoma Sharp Acer Dell 3D DLP-Link Projector Glasses", as the image is quite similar, but they are cheaper and re-chargeable.
My 2 cents
