I have a Sony VW-85 throwing onto a Dalite 106 inch HPHC screen.
I want to go to 3D.
I was considering selling my VW85 and buying a VW95 to get 3D.
Recently added a Darbee into the chain and I'm now very happy with my 2D performance.
So I'm looking at buying a 2nd projector strictly for 3D.
I seem to remember reading previously that reasonably cheap DLP projectors are excellent 3D performers, (no crosstalk).
Can people give me advice as to what 3D projectors I should be considering please?

(Plannning to duplicate this thread in the >$3,000 forum to cover all price bases.)

Once you have a good 2D projector, the 3D choice becomes simpler. I have an LCD 3D projector for double duty, but a DLP projector is better for dedicated 3D use, in my opinion. Look no further than the Optoma 33/ 3300 or the Acer 9500. The Optoma has more accurate color and the Acer has more contrast. Neither is very bright, but your screen is not too big, so you probably don't need all that brightness and can go with the Optoma for the accurate color and full color calibration. You cannot lose with either.

But, hey, if you're going to have 2 projectors anyway, do consider a passive 3D, 2 projector setup like in the Omega thread. That delivers the best of three worlds, at little additional cost to what you are considering now.
