In bright scenes the glasses are essentially identical, although it's possible that the D4 glasses might be slightly brighter. However, that marginal increase in brightness is not enough to offset their poor treatment of red flash in dark scenes.
I should mention the Estars are noticeably lighter in weight as well. At this point I'm happy enough with the Estar's that I'll be ordering a second pair and returning the D4's.
In conclusion, I have to say I found it surprising that BenQ's own glasses have been outclassed by a third-party brand...and for $20 less. I guess it pays to do a little homework sometimes!
Thanks for the info! I ended up buying the Estar's as well and returned the BenQ's. I couldn't stand the red tint in black. The Estar's are close to perfect...the only two issues I have with them are:
1) Highly reflective..so I get reflections of my cheek/face.
2) When the image on screen has a lot of white...the glasses lose 3d sync and then pop back into 3D when the image doesn't have too much overall white on screen.
Any idea's what might be causing this and how to eliminate it?
** EDIT: I found turning ON Brilliant Color eliminated issue #2
. Also even though 3D perceptually looks darker with brilliant color on in 3D, the colors and hues look more like the 2D version of the film. With it turned OFF, the skin tones look too cool and dead looking for my taste and don't match the 2D version of the film (color temperature wise).
