As the title says, looking for a 1080p 3d projector that has the lowest lag possible as I want to use it as my main pc monitor.

I just got a Panasonic L55ET5B and have been having issues, lightbleed, banding and bad xtalk in 3d gaming + some in films.
Was talking to a guy that recommended looking into projectors.
He is using a 720p one but I'd like a 1080p one.
Seems all the 1080p ones that I have been looking at suffer form lag, especially in 3d mode.

Any suggestions?

how many hours a day do you plan to run it and what is your budget?

This is from 2011 but gives you a good idea of what is possible.

I just need 1 smile.gif and it needs to be 1080p

I know the 720p projectors have very low lag but all the 1080 ones I was looking at supposedly have quite a bit.

Cheers. Reading more about the rainbow effect, I think it might bother me, so dunno if a PJ is the way to go. All led ones seem to have high lag, from what I can tell by reading reviews anyway.

There is no general answer to RBE. You must test it. I never saw even one rainbow in my life and I own DLP projectors since 1999. All my friends never complaint when they watched with me. On my presentations (several hundreds of people watching in total) , not even one negative feedback. It seems to me, that this effect is not widely spread in the population, that has not be trained to notice RBE.

Ok interesting to know. i seem to be very susceptible to screen artifacts of any find so if they are there I would possibly see them.
