Depends on the technology of the set, or in your case the projector. For me, it's DLP Link all the way because I can't disable the DLP Link flash. If you can turn off DLP Link or the flash doesn't tint your picture than I'd say go RF. RF works in any light, DLP Link is best in the dark without other lighting to mess it up. RF will also have farther range and not lose sync when you look away from the screen. Not sure about the picture quality, as that will depend on the specific glasses used.

I have both. I prefer the RF glasses to the DLP link. DLP link glasses affect contrast in dark scenes.

i just bought 2 more pair of rf glasses. I was concerned about what would happen to the picture on the rf glasses if i turned on the dlp link setting on my projector and tried to use both.

I am thinking about getting a 3D projector. When you turn on DLP Link does the tint change?

Just ordered a HD33 myself and i am going with DLP link. RF has his it's advantages but the DLP link i heard is the best in terms of picture quality.

Thanks

You have that backwards! DLP link has a flatter less contrast image because of the flash that syncs the glasses. Plus with rf glasses you can turn your head away from the screen and they keep working.

One thing for sure? You can't generalize the PQ of all DLP link glasses.

I tried a few differetn DLP links as well as a few emitter types and the DLP Link XpanD X102's I have are the best picture glasses out of close to a dozen (mix of DLP Link and Emitter) we gotten to try.

So I would say you have it backwards

If you get DLP Link buy the best. The optoma zd101's after many a set I have tested are teh best all round PQ. RF didn't have the "better" look that I keep hearing others harp on about. Its about the quality of glasses too. I don't have the RF equipment to post the shots like i did in that thread for DLP Link glasses difference or I would.

My TV is calibrated for natural look for normal 2d viewing but for 3d I just move it over to bright, not messing with any other settings.

Cool Beans.

See how subjective this is...
IMO zd101's are the worst glasses I have ever used and wouldn't recommend them to anyone. Some people love them. Weird.

I haven't noticed a problem with DLP Link and my XpanD x102 glasses not working when I turn away.

1. Not an issue anyway in my mind, since you only need them to sync while you are looking at the screen anyway.

2. We watch movies without turning and chatting, or working on the computer, or knitting, etc.

3. The glasses sync such that one doesn't see the flash while they are on.

All that being said, DLP-Link, IR and RF all have their place. For instance, I've hear of IR interference with remotes causing problems, so RF may be better than IR in that circumstance.

I love them because of quality but I agree they are not comfortable, there is some better glasses but they are not selling in United States. So we have very limited choice here

zd101 are ugly and huge.... but they get the job done. Big lenses that do not reflect. Good image quality. Gread build quality. No ghosting/crosstalk. http://www.amazon.com/Optoma-BG-ZD10...1311022&sr=8-1

Or the newer model which is supposed to be a lot better:

After trying out quite a few Dlp link glasses I can say in my opinion the Optoma zd101's are the best followed by the xpand 102's. I do own these and I have some off brands that don't fully block out the dlp link white flash. I can't comment on RF or IR glasses as I haven't tried them.
