I should also be getting mine on thursday
Were both most likely getting it from the first shipment to Canada. It shipped from Vancouver instead of Toronto and thats why it was delayed a few days. Hopefully they don't stomp kick the **** out of the box before it gets here (many Sony haters around
I think FI in 3D is going to be HUGE feature. I watched some underwater and nature stuff on a flat panel sony with FI in 3D and WOW. The sense of immersion is magnified alot when you add FI to 3D. Everything becomes even more real. Animation also benefits a lot(70% of 3D is animation right now) from FI. They even showed some stupid live action movie with ferrets, or hedgehogs in hamster balls with FI on and again the 3D effect was amazing more fluid. The soap Opera effect doesnt seem as bad in 3D for some reason. Maybe because 3D is supposed to be more "realistic" live action movies with FI in 3D aren't as soapy looking as FI without 3D which I can't stand.
I hope to post a review this weekend and I do have an Acer to compare it too. It's too bad an HP screen won't work with my setup (8 foot ceiling mounted projector and the screen is 12 feet away close to the ceiling) Gotta wait for some new type of screen I guess. Im not obsessed with lumens like some people on this forum. I actually like a dim picture for some reason in my batcave (so dark I can't see my hand in front of my face with lights off) I run my Epson in Natural low mode with over 2000 hours on the lamp and it's way more then bright enough for my Carada 1.4 screen. I know im getting under 400 lumens in 2D and it's fine. Hopefully 200 will be enough for 3D
Also, not to start a vs. JVC thing again, but Im not sure why MANY people have said that the JVC is much brighter in 3D then the Sony, when Ekki measured both the Sony and JVC at around 220 lumens in 3D and said that ghosting was less visible on one or the other, depending on the scene. Seems like a draw for 3D, other then the FI in 3D which Ekki really liked on the Sony. Also remember the Samsung flat panels had crazy ghosting on them and much of that was fixed with firmware updates to better sync the glasses. If enough people complain their will also most likely be updates to help with corsstalk. To bad firmware can't fix light loss?
