If your shure you don,t want 3D theen HD82 would be the better projector. I have the HD33 and the 3D is outstanding. Just saw Titanic 3D last weekend and it was amazing. My wife saw it in the theater when it came out and said the HD33 was better than the theater. There is a lot of 3D coming out and I think when people see what these projectors can do with 3D it will take off. Coming from a 720p either projector will blow you away.
