Rather than quote every post, just let me say I am responding to the last 20.
Best Buy carries cheap glasses from Mits and others. They are Blutooth. They didn't have any of the $150 that work on IR. I needed aniother pair quick but they have to be mail ordered from some on line source like AV Science.
Yes campers. I have both an RS40 and a Mits HC9000D, in the same room. Watch one, then the other. Haven't checked the RS40 out in 3D yet. Getting some glasses for it tonight. It won't work with my Mits glasses.
The sample of the RS40 I have will have only about 5 hours on it when I start with 3D. It looks really good, uncalibrated. No Lumagen on it. Just straight out of the box. I reset the Mits, straight out of the box, no Lumagen. They both look really good in 2D. The Mits looks sharper though. In 2D they are both bright now. The Mits has a lot more controls to play with. The Mits 3D is very very bright but the default is torch mode. High lamp, high color temp, wide open iris yada yada. Looks great though. Like all LCD, SXRD, etc there is some ghosting if you look for it but it really is not at all bothersome unless you focos on the thing that ghosts. I will compare the 3D on the RS40 tonight.
WSR has a special 3D issue this month. They have a bunch of different reviewers reviewing several 3D projectors. No reviews by Bill Rogers, I don't think he is doing them any more. The RS60 is reviewed, It is the new WSR reference in a rear projection set up in the WSR lab which is now I think the publisher/editor's living room. Full page JVC ads again on the back cover of WSR. Probably just a coincidence. WRS reviewed 42 3D Blurays. Almost all 5 rated, go figure.
Oy yea. The reviewer of the 17000 Sharp, a local friend of mine, thought the 17,000 was only so so in 3D but great for the money in 2D. Go figure.
I suspect WSR is having very hard times. I try to help, revnewing my subscription for multiple years.
I think the magazine has pretty much lost all its cred. A real shame. Now I just read it and shake my head. The reviews are just nowhere as good as when Rogers did them. It is absolutely that the JVCs be annointed with reference status. This is no a condemnation of the JVCs. I thought the RS40 is a good machine nut it cam't touch better reference machines such as the 3D Sim2s and the DP machines. Not even close.
