I just saw this projector was available over at Newegg and I haven't heard of this before.
The specs there show it as a 4000 Lumen darkchip 3 projector. I downloaded the manual from the Acer website and it indicates that this has horizontal and vertical lens shift as well.
I've been waiting here to hear news on the Acer H9500BD 3d projector (which is now on sale in Europe) but this one might prove to be a nice alternative for those who do not want the 3d capabilities of that projector when and if it becomes available in the US.
I ordered it and should get it by the end of the week. I'll report back with my findings. Looks like a dark chip 2 with lens shift, newegg says 3x color wheel, but Acer specs say 6x.
The specs and features of this projector for the price are amazing. I am interested in:
- Cross-talk/ghosting with 3D
- Brightness (some of these manufacturers like Optoma really fudge their max lumen numbers)
- Contrast/black level
- Lens shift
Please let us know your thoughts. Seems like a solid price and offers a lot more contrast and lumens than the Optoma 33 for slightly more money.
