Yup, I misunderstood. I have a PC and an ACER as well, and also a Mits 3800 for 1080p which I'm looking forward to using as well.

so does this VIP-Displayer also work for LCD's? All I hear talk about is projectors. I have a Samsung LNA650 which is 60hz input and 120hz display I think. Will the VIP-Displayer work with my tv?

I have the same TV, so I guess this mean that the VIP products would only work @ 60hz? (the 120hz is via AMP, and not an accepted input I believe)

Also, anyone know which product would allow me to play mkv SBS from a HTPC? Do i need to get the full VIP-Theater, or will VIP-Displayer + PC software(?) be all I need for my 24/60hz projector and 60hz LCD tv?

I also have an LNA650 and would be interested in how this would perform on my TV.

where are you getting it cost 335.95
its 299.00 + 129 for the glasses and emitter + 15 for a wall charger and 9.99 for shipping in the us?
thats more than 335.95

It is if you plan on front projection & have an older projector.

I have an optoma hd70... decent, bright 720p dlp. About the only one on the market with horiz. keystone correction, which I need with my setup, but it doesn't do 3d.

So I could spend:
$600-$800 on a comparible 3d ready projector (plus whatever it takes to ceiling mount instead of wall mount in my rental house, probably embedding conduit to run the cables & redoing the ceiling)
$300 for a 3dXL or the Viewsonic unit (which may not support future pj upgrades)
+say $300 on DLP glasses.
=$1200+

Or pick up one of the VIP units, which should work with my existing displays, & any future purchases as well. I purchased the Theatre with the ir emitter & plan to eventually get 3 sets of glasses total = ~$830.

+1 on your comment.

I already have a 1080p projector that I am more than happy with. I don't want to buy a new pj just for 3D.

Plus, to me at least, 3D isn't even worth bothering on anything less that a 100" screen - but that's just me.

You are correct.. almost HALF the price of a 3D tV ... Exactly HALF THE PRICE ... you just proved a good point in favour of buying the 3D-Displayer

A h5360 with 3 nvidia glasses will run you about $820. My guess (hope I am wrong) is that will substantially outperform the 3d displayer with your pj and most folks existing pjs. Of course you now have to futz with another pj, but you're likely going to be getting a better pic in return, and the $ are very close.

It won't be a better pic for me if it doesn't provide horizontal keystone correction (which it doesn't). I realize keystone adjustment isn't ideal, but it's what I need for the current layout of my room.

And again, if I upgrade the pj later, I can take the VIP unit with the change, even if it is another HDMI 1.3 pj.

Unlike vertical keystone correction, horizontal keystone correction requires a frame buffer (it needs to store an entire frame to figure out how to scale it), and this means at least one additional frame of delay. Please let us know how well synchronized the glasses are to your display, as I have yet to hear of any delay adjustment capability.

If it's exactly one frame delayed then you can probably just hit the "switch eyes" button to fix it.

All I want is a product that will take HDMI 1.4 output (720p only if needs be) from PS3 and allow me to run it on my 120Hz 3D Vision monitor. Does the 3D Displayer do this?

Here is the thread link to the User Manual, it shows HDMI1.4a is converted to HDMI 1.3 and the switch setting for PS3.

Also, you might want to confirm any doubts with Jonathan at VIP, he is always glad to help.

I think what is confusing me is the spec - field interleaved? Sounds a lot like interlacing to me... surely my 3D Vision monitor would require frame sequential?

"Field Interleaved" is wrong (maybe a bad translation). It should be "Field Sequential" or "Frame Sequential". Field Interleaved is what the XPol monitors do and use passive glasses.

Went ahead and ordered the Display model from Consignia with two sets of IR glasses with emitter for now. Would have bought more but had to add an additional $27 due to USD/CAD exchange rate. Will get the rest here later. ETA for shipping will be week of April 18th.

$559.97 Canadian is $586.14 US.

Anyone know what type batteries these use?
