Smallish room 135" screen with full ambient light control...
Bulb is like 95 bucks if you buy the bare bulb, I just changed one in my gt750 a couple months back.

But is the picture or contrast or features any better with a hd25e or benq 1070 than my hd33? I know I love the simplicity of the hd33 3d glasses....

Yeah the HD33 is bright enough and it has the best color wheel RGB/RGB. The Benq has an RGB/RGB wheel but I'd still prefer the optoma for it's better black level.

Thanks so much for the information!! Another question I have is it easier or better to replace it with a bare bulb vs. The replacement lamp? Any gotcha or best practices replacing either? Thanks again for the help!

easier to replace the replacement lamp because you take out a couple of screws pull out lamp, and put in new lamp. It costs like 2 to 3 times as much.

I got an osram bulb from ebay, pulled out the lamp assembly, unscrewed it and swapped the lamp, there was a video or something I think that showed how to do it, like 4 screws or so to take the cage apart. You just need to make sure you don't touch the bare bulb, only touch the base and use paper tower or something so your skin doesn't touch the glass and get oil on it.

The HD33 is discontinued and when I had mine it was not user updateable you had to send it to Optoma. It has no 2D to 3D converter. Frame sequential will auto select when playing a like BR, the SBS/TOP bottom are user selectable because many of those files don't have the command to auto select those types of files.

HDMI 1.4 spec for frame sequential 3D 720p 60hz per eye and the screen refresh rate is 120hz. 1080p 24hz screen refresh rate is 96hz. Newer projectors have triple flash for 1080p 24hz screen refresh rate is 144hz.

Let me be more specific

when ever i run a game or movie in 3d mode enable the projector says


1. 720P 60 hz shouldnt it be 720 p 120hz


and on default with 3d enabled it says 1080p 24hz

The HD33 to my knowledge (and most 3D projectors) can only accept for 3D frame sequential an input of 720p 60Hz or 1080p 24Hz. For 720p 120Hz the screen refresh rate would have to be 240Hz but the projectors max is 120Hz. For 2D or a SBS/TB it might be able to accept a 720p 120Hz signal but you would have to check the Manuel and it might not even tell you if its supported.

The Manuel clearly states 720p 120hz is not supported. Only 1024 x 768 120hz is supported. I don't know if powerDVD is capable of such a resolution. I not sure what your question is. Your clearly using a PC so video card type, drivers and software are involved and add many variables.
