Just a quick update on 3D.
The 3D is brighter then the X7, but it also has a lot more ghosting
I tried a bunch of different picture modes and the crosstalk canceler did nothing to get rid of the the ghosting.
Also, I'm not a fan at all of 2D to 3D conversion and this is no different. Lots of ghosting and minimal 3D effect. It just pushes the image past the screen giving the illusion of depth, but it doesn't really make anything 3D.
I have the original emitter, and the original JVC glasses as well as the Xpand 103. Both glasses ghost the same amount, and the parallax control is pretty cool in that it lets you set your own seperation pop/depth. The parallax control can get rid of ghosting for a single scene, but as soon as the scene transitions, the ghosting is back. It's not effective for crosstalk.
I really wonder if this is a defective unit. The 3D has ghosting on pretty much every scene even after the projector has been on for over an hour. I wonder if the new JVC glasses are required to get rid of the ghosting. I doubt it can be this bad on all the new JVC. So, I wouldn't panic yet. Hopefully we get some more reviews soon.
Jason I will also post a pic of the lamp number too. I'll answer some of the other questions tomorrow, as today I concentrated on the 3D mainly.
