I will post some of my thoughts asap. I can't wait to try them out... stay tuned...
The Benq "D3" is hands-down the best! It has the brightest image, and provides the best colors and contrast. No red tint on black either.
Benq J3925 is disappointing. The good thing about it is it's very light weight, and it didn't lose L/R sync during the test. It doesn't block red tint on black completely.
Sainsonic, as I have mentioned before, would lose L/R sync once in a while, therefore it is not children-friendly. It also doesn't block red tint on black completely. Sainsonic is, surprisingly, a little brighter than Benq J3925.TrueDepth doesn't work in 144Hz! I am pretty sure they sent me the wrong version. I really hope that it would work, as when I use 720p/60Hz input it does work and it gives similar picture quality as Benq D3, and blocks red tint on black very well. Benq D3, however, is still better than TrueDepth to my eyes in this mode. Update: I finally received a BETA set from Daniel of TrueDepth and confirmed and tested that it works at 144Hz, and works very well! It has similar contrast, colors as the Benq D3, and blocks red tint on blacks just as good as the Benq D3! However, during my 2-hour test it had some color shifts a couple times almost as if it tried to sync, but it happened only briefly and recovered itself quickly. The Benq D3 never did this.Update 2: Upon further testing, I discovered that the TrueDepth BETA produces some "static" acoustic noise on the arms. I can hear the noise during quiet movie scenes, and it's very prominent when I cover my ears with my palms. The 120Hz TrueDepth set that I received earlier also suffers from this static noise at 120Hz mode. I have let Daniel know about it, and I'm waiting for his feedback.
Another good thing about TrueDepth, out of the 4, is that it prevents reflections of my cheeks from shining on the lenses. I'm Asian and I don't have high nose, when I wear the other 3, I see hints of my cheek's reflections on the bottom of the lenses. The way the TrueDepth lenses are slanted downward blocks the reflections. I'm attaching 2 pictures to depict what I mean
Ergonomically, the Benq J3925 is more comfortable, it's lightweight, the material used and the arms are more flexible and gentle. Yet it's the smallest out of the 4, so it's more suitable for children. The others are made of harder plastic, therefore they aren't very gentle on the skin. Sainsonics and TrueDepth have glossy finish, while both Benq's have matte finish.
From Left to Right: Benq J3925, Benq D3, TrueDepth, SainsonicSo as of now, seems like the Benq D3 is the best one picture-quality-wise. I will follow-up with Daniel from TrueDepth to find out what happens. It's really too bad that it doesn't work at 144Hz. If it worked and gave similar picture quality as it would at 120Hz, it would have been the one that I recommend. Both the Benq D3 and "TrueDepth BETA" provide very similar picture quality. Contrast and colors are the best out of the 4. They both block red tint on blacks very well. The TrueDepth fits my face better than the Benq D3.Update 2/25/13: The DLP-link glasses from Monoprice are also confirmed to work well at 144Hz. This post contains some of my findings.
