I seriously considered buying this projector, but I think I'll wait for a 1080p DLP 3D projector before I upgrade. There seems to be an awful lot of compromises being made here. Maybe a firmware update will solve these wrinkles. I sure hope so.
if you go back to my earlier post, I did state that the room is a bit chilly @ 64 degrees until I put the heater on. Perhaps this is making it worse. But yes, it takes a good 20+ minutes until the ghosting/flickering subdues, and then another 15-20 until it's pretty much gone completely. I would say once it settles in, the IQ of the JVC is nicer than the Acer without question, the colors (in Gamma A mode, 65k), sharpness, and blacks & contrast get a sharp nod towards the JVC, as welll it should given the price difference. However, the Acer definitely holds it's own and I said it before, If I already owned an RS25 or 35, I'd probably add the Acer and be quite satisfied with the image. The RBE does piss me off, I can see it from time to time, even in 3D. If the acer was 1080p and a 4-5x color wheel, it would be a gem for 3D only.
There are also 3 other members in the RS50 forum who have validated the same issue warm-up / ghosting issue, I am not the only one claiming this is happened. After a period of time, the ghosting diminishes. My projector can't have more than 12 hours on it yet, perhaps this will diminish as I continue to use it, and the panels get cooked a bit.

Last night I played Avatar3D within seconds of my RS40 powering on, no ghosting and no flicker. Do we know if the extra brightness produced by HP screens is causing the ghosting to become that much more obvious?
And also when I played My Bloody Valentine 3D, which is known to be filled with Ghosting, I played it literary within min or two from the RS40 firing up, and even then there was no ghosting.
Mnttwister/Toe/Zbroke/Krichter1 (all with low gain screens)? If you read this can you please confirm or deny this "pre-warm-up-ghosting" issue?
I drapped up a 1.0 gain screen I had, the flickering and ghosting is much less noticeable upon my cold startup than with the HP screen. I am also in a bat cave and invited a few neighbors over for a viewing today. First I showed them the JVC with the 1.0 gain screen, showed a few 3D clips, then did the unveal of the HP screen underneath. The praise was across the board. Everyone thought it looked like a huge Plasma on the wall, which is a compliment. One neighbor asked 'why did you have that old screen to begin with?'
these folks are as J6P as it gets, and they were going nuts over the HP screen / JVC combo. I showed them Alice 3D, space Station 3D, Dea Sea 3D and M v A on both screens.
For me, the HP screen brings this projector alive with bright, rich colors and great brightness. If I didn't know better, I'd probably get adjusted to the low gain screen and think this is as good as it gets. If I could ever meet Mr. Da-lite, I would thank him for putting a 142" plasma screen on my wall with a relatively low lumen projector.
