Is it just me? It just seems so much darker than the 2D picture. It's also significantly darker than my passive 3D LCD TV.
I've got the newest BENQ DLP Link glasses, so what gives?

3D is always much darker than 2D
LCD's are brighter than projectors

those are the sacrifices you have to deal with. try a higher bulb brightness if available

How big a screen do you have? The Benq is one of the brightest 3D projectors out there. Just look at some of the others. If you have ever seen 3D in movie theaters it is often darker than what you will get the 1070/1080 Benq.

I have a 120' screen. I feel better just reading that it's one of the brightest.
I'm going from a 32' passive LCD so I'm sure I need to adjust.
Plus, I need to calibrate (just don't want to spend big bucks on a meter).

Is it the glasses maybe? I have the latest BENQ DLP glasses...are their any better alternatives?

The BENQ glasses are fine. Be sure the room is light controlled (really dark) and that you are using high lamp mode for 3d. This should be automatic. A 120" screen is considered large but it should be ok even with 3D. You will have to get used to it compared to a very bright small LCD.
