they aren't going to be here long, just have to get the auction going. great concept if they were only more comfortable to wear.
Instead of breaking out the calibration equipment, I can tell this projector is pretty close out of the box so I watched various 2D & 3D content I've been reviewing for 5 straight hours. I am impressed with this projector, I can see why Tom gave it such high regards. The black level is much better than I was expecting, as is the perceived contrast.
The living room mode almost set my HP on fire. I could easily watch HDTV on this with ambient light in the room.
in cinema mode, I watched scenes from the Matrix, Underworld Evolution (opening battle), terminator 2, and Blade. The perceived contrast & black floor exceeded my expectations of an LCD projector. The black field is nearly perfect, there are no black corners that I can see on my HP screen.
3D was also a treat. I like the Epson glasses, they have a nice neutral tint and are relatively comfortable. They perform excellent with the 5010 and finding ghosting is a task. The brightness in 3D could be the brightest i've seen yet on any of the 6 3D projectors i've seen recently. Color in 3D is very similar to 2D with these glasses, nice and neutral like the MV3D's. If only they put FI in 3D, I'd say it would be about as good as it gets in 3D Bluray for now. (brightness/contrast/lack of noticeable ghosting, etc).
I am looking forward to seeing more this weekend, testing lag time and a full calibration. I'll update the first page once I have all the info.
Epson glasses are on the lower right. there is a watch battery inside and an easy to use on/off button. BTW, the Sony glasses do not look that yellow when they are activated.. they completely change color tint to something much more neutral like the MV3D's.. these are the only glasses i've seen do this (look so different when turned off). The Nvidia 3D visions starts with a noticeable greenish cast and stays that way when activated. I could always see the color shift on the Acer 5360.
