Hi..I just ordered the Acer 5360 on Amazon for 420 dollars. Since I want 3D as well, my option now is to buy Optoma 3DXL for 220 dollars - this totals up to 650 dollars. For the same amount of money you actually get 3d projector not 3d compatible like my Acer. So a bit disappointed if I made a mistake.
Now I have just come some threads in this forum and else where where they are saying that you need the Optoma 3DXL only if one is trying to play 3d blu ray.
If say I have some 3d HSBS movies on my laptop - I was told that if I can make my laptop identify the projector a second output source and if it manages to output to 120HZ, then all I need is a cheap 3D convertor box that is available in Amazon in the 30-90 dollar range and I am all set.
I of course need to buy the DLP glasses - which I anyway have to buy whether I go to Optoma 3DXL route or the NVidia route.
Can you please confirm if this feasible? a combination of Laptop+cheap 60 dollare 3d box like monoprice+Acer 5360 projector?
