Anyone who bought a good 1080p projector last year should buy this mainly for 3D.
Before HD33 showed up, I read all the forums on how to pick the best budget 3D projector and I narrowed it down to HD66 and the Acer one. Everyone seemed to say that they prefer to have a dual projector setup...one for best 2D and one for great 3D...because budget 3D PJ's sucked in 2D. I almost convinced myself to go this route and was not looking for a 2D PJ but a great 3D PJ.
Enters HD33..... and I am completely blown away by the 2D quality....everybit as good as my highly rated 55" Samsung LCD...but bigger, better and now I plan to dust off all my 2D collection and watch them on this PJ (got to try the 2D->3D as well ) ! It feels like its almost a sin to watch 1080p on anything smaller than 100"
May be because I am not "spoiled" by need for perfect blacks, I find this PJ giving much better blacks and contrast compared to HD66. Its 3 times bigger and 3 times heavier, so it got to have 3 times better performance
Well, I got to watch TinkerBell with my kid yesternight and the 2D is breathtaking...many scenes almost looked 3D owing to the sharpness and out of the world color......For me this is a keeper. Still waiting for glasses and cant wait to see what 3D has to offer.
I was confused when i finally got to see guitarman's settings as I am not sure which ones to use for HDMI....I didnt see color or tint either....could someone please share their optimized settings ?
Also I dont have the luxury to ceiling mount this, so wondering whats the best way to set it up....any ideas ?
