Hi all, by luck I came across this thread and I am hoping you guys can help me.
I already have the VPL VW 85 and am very pleased with it so about 6 weeks ago I decided to purchase the VPL VW 90es because I want to get into 3D.
I am a very discerning person seeking the very best of both sound and video and want them to be as perfect as possible.
I run my PS3 (only 1 HDMI out) into my 2 year old Maranz (AV8003) HDMI and everything works perfectly for HD so will this setup work ok for 3D?.
I am sitting in a completely dark room 3.8 mtrs away on a standard screen, size 2.900 x 1.600 mtrs.
Yesterday the sony 90es finally came in at Harvey Norman ( I live in Perth Western Australia) and at the same time I found this reviewhttp://www.projectorcentral.com/sony...tout-vs-VWPRO1
This review absolutely praises the 2D abilities but says the 3D is very poor / not acceptable / very dark with a lot of crosstalk. As I already have the sony 85 I am very concerned that I am making a mistake here and maybe should wait a while. I am not concerned about spending the money provided the 3D is very good.
The review also talks about Sony releasing new brighter glasses in July.
I have rang the store explaining my dilemma and asking them to contact Sony with my reservations, and they have come back to me stating the state rep for Sony says there is no problem, the store even says "how about we get you these new glasses FOC when they come out if there is a problem".
This was a good response but that assumes these new glasses will solve the problem, and I wonder what address will I have if they dont.
So guys, I see your experiences in 3D with the 90es seem positive and you talk about the xpand glasses. do these really improve the 3D or what?.
Whilst the review people seem well qualified maybe they missed a few things when setting up & viewing 3D as I find it hard to believe
Is there really a big difference between brightness on 2D & 3D having finally set up the two? and does the cross talk pose a problem?.
A big thank you for all your help & advise
