there is a link on Amazon page that allows you to report a better price if you find better price elsewhere......with enough people reporting, you may get lucky in getting Amazon to drop the price

for 3010 Bestbuy first dropped it from 1599 to 1499 and Amazon quickly followed suite

Thanks falafala. I did that 2 days ago. Maybe more folks can do the same whether you buy the unit or not. Egg has a good price but with tax it is almost as much as on Amazon right now. I think I am going to do what I did with my AVR and put the unit in my basket. I left it there like the guy from Amazon told me and when the price went down I immediately got an email from them, then I bought it. I am surprised ack_bk does not yet have his unit from Egg. I can usually have what I order on the doorstep the next day but I suppose that is why I pay sales tax from there. Looks like the Xmas season is ramping up and slowing shipping.

Funny thing, Amazon has reported only one unit left from the day they listed it ready for shipping. Guess nobody has purchased one or?????

Edit: I never thought about reporting it daily. Guess I will try that too. And I just did it again.

I've been reporting the Newegg price daily ($1499, free shipping). I suggest everyone else do the same, maybe Amazon will shave a few $$.

Where can I buy this projector in Canada? Newegg.ca doesn't have it listed.

Thanks.

I thought I read that the 9500 doesn't support anamorphic lenses? Hopefully you have your own scaler.

I do have the Lumagen ProHDP but it doesn't support 3D. So last night I stopped by Magnolia and purchased an Oppo BDP93 which will do the stretch. I needed a 3D Bluray player anyway so spent a little more and got the Oppo. It does have some problems I read stretching Java Blurays but I don't think that's too many hopefully.

I have enjoyed reading this thread and would like to know more about the 3D brightness with the glasses on. Would it be the same brightness as watching my epson 8100 in cinema mode ?

I think I may buy this model but not sure yet. How would I report the lower price to amazon? I looked over the acer ad and found nothing

I have been considering the acer for 3d only. I would jump on it if amazon had it for the same price as newegg. Lets hope they lower their price soon.

Well, i just couldnt wait any longer for amazon and just ordered the 9500 from newegg. Merry christmas to me! This is replacing my optoma pro350w and VIP gamer. Anyone made a similar jump? I would be interested in your feedback. I put the 350, vip gamer, and x102 glasses up on ebay if anyone is interested.

Under the product details section click on the "tell us about a lower price" link and a window will open. You will need the URL for the Acer from the Egg page and just input the data. I just told them again.

Been a long day.. But not long enough to unpack this (bring on the projector porn):









Nice packaging job by Acer. I like the carrying case and they included an HDMI cable with the projector which is a nice touch.

I set up the 9500 in my livingroom (my basement is still be finished which is where the projector will end up). I used the same wall that I projected the Epson 3010 on to (wall is a light grey/green color). I projected onto a 120" diagonal area from about 13.5' and sat just behind the projector.

My initial notes/thoughts (I spend about an hour and half with it):
- Contrast really is good. Best blacks I have ever owned on a projector. Noticeably better than the Epson 3010 (which I had for about 4 weeks). With the dynamic iris set to medium, I did not notice any yo-yo or pumping effect in my limited viewing. I was concerned about this and pretty relieved that this does not appear to be an issue for me.
- Very sharp image, but not too sharp for me. Colors really pop and the higher contrast plus the sharpness make for a very strong DLP image. With bright color engaged, this thing really pops (I chose dark cinema mode). I turned bright color off and the image was more natural looking. So it depends on your tastes.
- I watched segments of three movies on Blu-Ray: Tron Legacy, Toy Story, and Tangled in 3D. My other concern besides the iris with this projector was the color accuracy, and I am happy to say that even in the default modes, I did not find this to be an issue. Once I log about 50-75 hours on the lamp, I will spend some time calibrating and will try and get the colors closer to 6500, but honestly, I don't think this will be an issue for many folks at all.
- I did not observe (neither did my wife) any RBE, but we have owned DLP before (4x color wheel) and we had no issues previously with RBE.
- Outside of a delay, I did not have issues going from 2D to 3D and then back to 2D. The switch between modes was not snappy (there was a noticeable delay) but it worked. I don't see an issue here for me, unless there are many more 3D channels in the future and I switch between 3D and 2D constantly.
- 3D. Another concern I had with this PJ was brightness. I am happy to report that this projector puts out a very clean and nice 3D picture. It is not as bright as the 3010, but I did not find the image too dim using the Acer glasses on my 120" wall from roughly 14' back. Considering my screen will have more gain than the wall I am projecting on, I don't see this being an issue. Although we will see when the bulb dims, but for folks in the 125" and below range, I think this projector will be fine, and if you have a high gain screen, even better. Watched about 30 minutes of Tangled and was very happy with the 3D image. Nice colors, good brightness, and good black level even in 3D. Zero ghosting.

How I think it stacks up to the 3010:
Pros. Noticeably better black levels, and an overall more dynamic image with that DLP pop. Dynamic Iris and CFI in 3D mode. This will come in handy for 3D sports. I liked the glasses better (the Epson's felt a little big and bulky). Lens shift is a nice feature to have.
How it compares (to me) to the 3010:

Cons. The Epson is brighter in 3D. The Epson is a better looking projector (physically). The Acer is not ugly, but the Epson, to me, is a better looking case and I like the lens in the center of the projector. The Epson was slightly more quiet. I would not say the Acer is too loud, but my Epson was near silent and I could slightly detect the Acer.

I will watch some sports on the Acer soon and share my thoughts, but this is a keeper for me. I can honestly say I am glad I returned the 3010 for the Acer. In my opinion, for 2D, the Acer is clearly superior and 3D is kind of a wash against the 3010 (Epson being brighter, the Acer having better black level and has CFI and enough brighness to satisfy me). But since about 90%+ of my viewing is 2D, the Acer wins out easy.

Will post more thoughts as I can, but I am in full build mode in my basement, so my projector viewing time will be limited

Just curious if you while viewing a 3d source hit the menu button and adjusted the brightness. Mine was set at 50% which works great for my small 80" screen for now. This projector has different menu's pop up when menu button is pressed with different source material.

I did, but this does not increase the lumens. Just the brightness of the PQ and it really washed out the image. Clearly a tradeoff with the 3010 in 3D. The Epson has noticeably better brightness which really makes a difference in 3D, and the Acer has better contrast in 3D.

Good to know and glad you are enjoying it. I knew I liked the performance of it and your comparison to the 3010 reinforces the choice. And also glad my taste/information didn't assist you to a bad purchase.

Just a side note fyi. I recieved the True Depth usb charge dlp link glasses and I am just as pleased with them as I am with the Acer glasses. Fact more so since they are rechargeable. Both are light and easy to wear in my opinion. Course my other 3D glasses are the first gen Panasonic's which are heavy and become annoying quickly.

Cheers,

Josh

Hey, thanks for the info on the True Depth rechargeables. I was planning on buying a couple of pairs, but I also really liked the Acer glasses I used last night. The 3D Heaven Ultra Clear glasses I ordered (two pairs) also arrived and I have not had a chance to use them. For the price, these appear to be nice glasses for guests and my kids.

Please post your review of the ultra clears when you get a chance. I was planning on grabbing a pair for my daughter but I'd like to know how they look with the projector.

My 9500BD is out for delivery !! (UPS a little worried).

Ack_Bk - thanks for the pics and your 1st impressions. My scope screen is 46" x 109" and I will be projecting from about 13 ft, so brightness should be good for me, even in low power. A 16:9 screen with my screen height would only be 82" diagonal. I have the Epson 6100 now, so blacks should be better too. Can't wait to get this thing hooked up ! Went and bought 3D Thor, 3D Tron, 3D Captain America, and 3D POTC On Stranger Tides. After today off work until Jan 3rd so lots of time to play !!

Keep the comments coming guys as this threads really heating up with more ownership

If I bought this acer and then bought a high power, in your opinions what the biggest size I should go for with the projector for 3d movies? Right now I have a 110 inch dark grey screen and wonder if this projector would look as bright as my epson 8100 does in cinema black in 3D

I just read the Mits 7800 review at PC. It makes the acer 9500 look like the best buy out there for 3D at the moment. PC rated the Panny's 2D to 3D conversion as better than the Mits. Oh well. Now if I could find the 9500 in Canada I'd buy it. Not sure if any US sellers will ship it north.

Here's the Mits 7800 review, which should make you Acer 9500 owners feel pretty good! its a good review, but I was expecting better. Not good black level and tough to mount.

How far back do you sit? If you bought an HP screen I would think you could easily go up to 130-135" for 3D. For 2D? No problem at all. The 9500 is plenty bright in 2D, especially with brilliant color turned on.

Well ack_bk, glad you like it so far. Looks like this might be the one for me though a ceiling fan is going to have to be moved.

I did notice that kraine said in his review 2 year warranty. Is that right?

Lastly, the most humorous thing I have found in the owner's manual page 26:

Quote:


Note: It will takes much time and some garbage screen might happen while
switching between 2D mode, 3D mode and 2D to 3D mode.

Somebody who understands English really ought to proof read these things lol. Based on the Mitsu HC7800 review it too seems to suffer from the same malady though I bet their manual does not quite word it this way. Oh well, there you go, Mitsu much more expensive and those expensive proprietary glasses. I am not sure I feel the extra expense for that one. Next up Benq 7K. Doubt that one is going to deliver that much more for the money, for me anyway, so Amazon needs to speak my language and soon. I need a replacement to compare to my 8350 side by side before I decide to sell it.

And if anyone is wondering, the HD33/3300 is out for me because I cannot do the 9.3" offset/drop in my drop ceiling basement man cave without some major surgery, and then that will look stupid with the bottom of the 120" screen too close to the floor. A 6" difference makes a big difference when you have little to work with in the first place, and two of my subs sit at the bottom of the screen right now.

It is a one year limited warranty on the projector and a 90 day warranty on the bulb. I decided to buy the 2 year extended warranty for $89. I rarely purchase extended warranties, but twice on televisions I have purchased them and twice I had expensive repairs covered by the warranty. I have 60 days to cancel and get a full refund if I choose to do so.

Mike I have to think you would be impressed with the Acer. I really wanted to hold out for the BenQ, but since we have gone over budget for our basement build, I needed to trim the projector cost to under $2K and I really think the Acer is the best deal out there right now for everything you get. I considered the Optoma but had similar challenges with you regarding the screen placement being too low, and the additional features and better contrast of the Acer made it a no brainier. I don't think there is a 1080p 3D projector under $2k that can touch the Acer in terms of overall features and picture quality. The minute I fired up Toy Story on Blu-Ray I noticed the difference vs other projectors I have seen. It is much closer to the Epson 8700 in terms of contrast than it is the 8350, and of course you have that sharp DLP image as well. If they could have equaled the 3010 in terms of 3D brightness, the Acer would have been a grand slam. Right now, I will settle for a 3 run homer in the ninth
