I am looking at buying a 3D projector, and I am trying to decide which one to get. I have had an Optoma projector before, so I am looking at the HD25 or the HD25-LV, and it has gotten pretty good reviews. I am looking to spend about $1000~$1300. Are there any other projectors that are going to give me a better picture quality and better value? I was originally planning to get the HD25, but I am thinking about the -LV for the extra lumen output. Currently I will be using the projector in a living room setup, projecting about a 115" screen, so I know the HD25 would probably have sufficient brightness, but I am thinking about getting the -LV for future expansion, when I might be able to use it in a larger home theater area, or perhaps even outdoors. I figure it is better to get the -LV and turn down the brightness if not needed than to get the HD25 and it not be bright enough in the future. Also, I thought the extra brightness might be helpful with 3D viewing, which is one of my main reasons for getting the projector.
My other question is about DLP-Link. This projector has the option of going RF or DLP-Link. I have found universal DLP-Link glasses a lot cheaper than RF, and you don't have to buy an emitter, so I am leaning towards DLP-Link, but I have never seen it before. I have read that some people have issues with seeing the light flash for DLP and it effects the image, is that common with this model? Also, I am going to be projecting onto a white living room wall, not a screen, and I wanted to know if anyone has done this with DLP link, to make sure that the glasses will be able to pick up the signal without the screen.
Thanks for any help.
