That's interesting. I have two questions. 1) What brand of DLP link glasses do you have? 2) If you are watching 3D Blu rays, are you using a dedicated player or a PC for playback?
My understanding is that if the playback device is a 3D Blu ray player then the display refresh rate used by the projector is 144hz (for smoother motion), so your glasses must sync to 144hz. I didn't think any of the older DLP Link glasses could sync to 144hz.
I suspect but am not sure that glasses limited to 120hz sync can work if the playback device is a PC set to 120hz display (requiring 2:3 pulldown of film sources and therefore introducing motion judder), or possibly a refresh rate of 96hz to avoid motion judder.
I'm speculating about the latter since I don't know if there is a refresh rate of 96hz (24 frames displayed four times per second, or for 3D, 48 left-eye right-eye frames displayed twice per second) to avoid judder and to reduce flicker. I've always simply assumed that 24fps playback doesn't mean that the refresh rate is limited to 24hz (or 48hz for 3D).
I am seriously thinking about purchasing the LV version of this projector for the sake of greater brightness in 3D, but I'd feel much more comfortable with this decision if I knew that my old DLP Link glasses (Optoma ZD101s) and those of a fellow 3D pal (who often brings over a half-dozen old True Depth glasses) would work on my home theater PC.
If I go with this projector, I'll probably buy a couple of EStar RF glasses since the word is that RF is better than DLP Link in terms of sync and contrast. Still, I'd want the DLP Links for those occasions where my room is full of guests who actually want to see a 3D movie.
I am also very interested in any comments about brightness. I'm coming from an HD66 and look forward to 1080P 3D.
