Hey guys, good to see that this thread is finally catching a lot of well-deserved attention. I have been using and enjoying the projector so much and am nearly at 650 hours burned in. I have it connected to my HTPC where I do a lot of gaming (currently FFXIV), and movie watching.
In terms of 3DGlasses, I've tried out just about the everything mentioned (both RF and DLPlink). Started off with the Optoma RFs + Emitters, but returned them due to the overly expensive pricing (it was about $130). For that price, I got a grab-bag of DLPLink glasses: 1 Sainsonic, 1 VIP 3D, 1 3DTVCorp (Blue ones like Two-Rocks linked), and 1 Estar America.
I dont really have anything bad to say about any of them, but I dont notice any huge improved contrast or brightness across the board. The 3DTV / VIP3D / Monoprice are all the same manufacturer called Hi-Shock, so its no surprise I can't really see a perceptable difference between them. The biggest inconvenience is that I now have different charging connectors for each glasses..... So for me, it all boils down to fit. I wear prescription glasses, so the Estar America / Optoma DLP Link and RF glasses won hands down. This is due to the fact that you can remove the nosepiece entirely. That lets them sit nearly right on top of my prescription glasses without it feeling like im wearing huge goggles on top of my glasses.
My Overall DLP and RF pick are the Estar Americas. They are THE SAME as the Optoma branded ones, except without the visible Optoma branded logo on the side of the glasses. Same charging connector, frames, even removable nosepieces. I A/Bd both sets extensively before returning my Optoma Branded Glasses + Optoma Emitter. I got the Estar DLPLinks for $29 on Amazon awhile back. The Estar RF bundle is priced well at $65 currently on Amazon

In terms of DLP vs RF, both looked great. I never noticed any flashes using DLPLink, maybe I just cant tell. I dont really have a habit of actively roaming around while watching a movie, so I guess the benefits of RF syncing dont really apply to my usage. if you want to enable Triple-flash on either of the technologies, you have to be using a 24Hz input source... meaning either a Bluray Player, or set your Refresh rate to 1920x1080x24Hz in your display driver control panel.
Still looking for calibrated 3D Settings to use as a baseline. For now I have just been using the factory presets with minor adjusting in 3D. IMO, the Brightness/Contrast hit is crazy in either DLP or RF modes. This is my first 3D Projector, so definitely wasn't expecting that much of a drop. Makes me wonder if I should have went with a HD25e or HD25-LV .... but the price premiums didnt seem worth it
