My RS50 would take a good while to sync too in 3D mode, but it seems they improved this with the RS45.
-First issues was the time it took to switch into 3D mode (at least 20-25 seconds)
-Once in 3D mode if you try swapping from auto to manual side-by-side or top-to-bottom it would hang for up to 40 seconds which is highly irritating for trying to use the Xbox 360
-Coming out of 3D back to 2D on DirecTV would cause the unit to hang for 20-30 seconds
-Unit locked up on me completely when I tried putting it into 3D mode when it did not auto detect my Samsung blu-ray player (only happened once and usually auto would always detect the 3D signal.) It constantly kept flashing like it was confused on what it wanted to do and never did anything.
-Picture was way too dimm on my unit in 3D, it was literally night and day. Based on the fact you measured it higher than any of the others and I owned all of those other projectors, I am going to assume either my glasses were borked or something was up with my unit.
As you can see most of these can be hopefully fixed with a firmware update of some sorts. I will say the black levels were also frustrating in 2D and I couldn't get them improved with simple calibrations without introducing a whole lot of other color issues. Mark mentioned turning off BC and putting a filter in front of it, that may be something I look into if I re-purchase this later down the line.
I will say I just opened up my RS45 tonight and after spending 3 hours with it I would be willing to bet the BenQ is every bit as sharp on my screen if I did them side-by-side for comparison.
