I guess that word can be used ambiguously.

I watched Oblivion again about a month ago and yes it looks great.
Also got my Xpand Lite RF 3D glasses last week and the 3D looks great with hardly any loss of light.

Question - from my Samsung F8500 purchase, I have about 8 pairs of compatible Samsung 3D glasses. They are the current 5150s and some older 4100s - they all work with my current 55ES using the Xpand adapter.

Will these glasses work with the 600ES?

if they work with the 55 using the Xpand adapter, they will work with the 600 as well.

I used the contrast pattern from the Spears & Munsil BD to verify the contrast setting on my VW1100ES. With the Dynamic Iris off, the whites were slight clipped, so I had to lower the contrast setting to 88. With the Dynamic Iris on Full Auto, whites were not clipped even with the contrast set at Max.

Now, turning the Dynamic Iris on and off while watching regular content does not have any obvious effect, so it seems that, with the Dynamic Iris on Full Auto, the VW1100ES adjusts the Gamma slightly only at the high end to avoid clipping.

Perhaps this is why measurements show a higher light output on the Sony PJs with the Dynamic Iris set to off.

I paid a similar price for a VW500ES that I bought from a local dealer, including delivery to my home. After exchanging three units with horrendous blue thermal convergence shift and colour non-uniformity (shading) problems - all explained somewhere in this thread - I returned this model and went instead for the VW1100ES which is in a completely different class. I paid more for the latter and got an excellent deal, too, but not as good as that for the VW500ES.

It's very simple. This post of mine and the subsequent post: Sony VPL-vw1000 show the two locations of the manufacturing date for my VW1100ES.

All the Sony PJs that I had had the manufacturing date clearly indicated on them (VW50, VW60, 3x VW500ES, VW1100ES).

I have a 600 and there is no build date on mine.

Are 3D glasses NOT created equal? I have a few pairs of the Sony glasses and Samsungs and they all seem similar to me.
