For instance, on the Under the Sea with the Potato Cod fish coming out at you, when I was 18ft away, the fish came to my nose. So, it was unreal. Then, when watching animation, the image floated about half the distance from me. So, from 18ft away, everything seemed as if they were in the middle of the room. Now since I'm closer the image is right near my feet since I'm 9ft away from a 140in screen.
My observations are exactly the same. And ive tried to explain that to friends and they dont fully believe me. The further you are away from the screen, the better perception of 3D, but some would say, the less the immersion because the image no longer surrounds you. So regardless of what display type you have, if ou want more pop, move back more.
Whoever, i own several 3D devices theres definitely a difference in pop quality from one to another. For example, the popout has always been stronger on my Samsung plasma TV. But if i rationalize it, again distance may be coming into play. Because even tho i am sitting the same distance to my TV & Projector, the TV is half the width, hence its effectively been viewed at a longer distance away (Screen width to viewing ratio). Hence the TV is being viewing further back and more pop.
Also yesterday i was in RS and viewed TXL47DT50B LED passive 3D TV, its 3D pop-out the best i have ever seen. Better than my projector, and i was sitting only about 2 meters from the TV. The 3D is definitely better than my 3D plasma.
I recently upgraded from a HD33 to a W1070, i compared them side by side and the HD33 originally had an edge in 3D depth/layering definition. But ive had my W1070 for 3 weeks now... and it seems to have improved.... as now the quality of the 3D seems as good as the HD33, or has my eyes 'adapted to the W1070? I notice 3D quality can vary from one viewing session to another.
Basically, im confused, because reviews do also claim the HD25 has better 3D depth and Pop than the W1070.
All in all, im really pleased with how much home 3D technology has progressed. Its getting better and brighter and by 2 years time, decent glasses free at an affordable price.
