woo! got it in, and did about 30 minutes of testing. With it sitting in the floor, so it looks like crap, but doesn't stop from testing two things I've been wondering about - lag and ghosting.
So first, I don't have an hd33 to compare to. But I do have a pro350w, and it should theoretically perform similarly as far as ghosting goes. I also tested its lag just cuz I was curious, and since I was setting up anyway...
So, first, the pro350w. Lag test:
Next, tridef's setup/test page for a 3d ghosting test. No glasses:
Very nice! extremely minimal ghosting. Yay
NOW..... The epson:
Lag first. Since I was already set to 720p, try that first:
erm... OUCH... Oh wait, noise reduction is on. Let's turn that off... and:
Ok, better, but still not good. It's scaling, though, so that's not unexpected. Alright, well, how about 1080p?
Still not good? This concerns me, but after taking the pics I realized, it's sitting on a little table on my floor tilted. I think it's got auto-keystone, doesn't it? I bet it's keystoning and that's causing lag. I'll have to re-test lag later
Now I know this is what a lot of people were really concerned about, right? So. Epson, tridef config page. No glasses:
Really? THIS is the ghosting everyone's been concerned about? Look closely and you can see the L just a tiny bit... I didn't realize it, but the nosepiece of the glasses kinda covered up the left side 'l' dots, they were still very hard to see, but a little easier than the bottom of the big "L" in the pic. Taking pics through glasses is tough
Anyway, if this is worse than the HD33, the HD33 must be gorram near perfect, and a significant improvement over the already quite amazing pro350w. And again, it comes back to my point - let's qualify what A>B actually means - as you can see, it definitely does NOT mean ghosting on B is bad.
Anyway, I gotta do some mods to my PJ box and mount before I can do more, and I've got a lan party coming up. so no idea if I'll get any more testing done 'til Monday. But, I just got confirmation that the RF glasses and emitter will be here Friday, so when I *do* get to test, I'll test them
Later, happy projecting to me
