I'm trying to choose a projector between the Panasonic PT-AE8000U and Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 5020UB. The Panny has IR 3d and the Epson had RF 3d. Does anyone have any personal experience between the IR and RF versions of 3d?

The benefit of RF is that you theoretically should never lose the link between the glasses and the PJ. IR relies on line of sight to connect. For most applications IR works just fine. Keep in mind that if you're right on the boarder for IR to work and you tend to move your head back and forth (for example turning to talk to someone next to you or behind you), you may momentarily lose the connection, but the glasses should reconnect within a few seconds.

Very interesting.. So It basically has to "connect" with the signal for it to work properly where as the RF just works all the time. Hmmmm, thanks!

I would say rf all the way, You will always be connected, and dont have to worry about your glasses wigging out like dlplink or ir, Have you ever used old car remotes that are ir? the worst!
