Well, I have to say that my busy life has only recently let me view any 3D content in it's entirety.
Last Friday I sat down with a friend and watched Star Trek: Into Darkness. I saw this movie in the theater in 3D so I had a good reference point.
I have to say that although I haven't " dialed in" any 3D settings (we watched in in graphics mode) the movie was stunning even on the preset. The depth was there, there was no ghosting or cross talk, and the brightness was about what I remembered when in the theater. I have to say "BRAVO OPTOMA, BRAVO". I really wonder how to figure out how to optimize my 3D settings, but man I was happy with the 3D as was. Had a friend over too and he was taken back by the image quality period (2D and 3D) of the HD25e and he couldn't stop talking about it. He is into home theater but doesn't have a dedicated room like I do.
Side note, did anyone read Projector Central's "best of....under $1000 projectors" article. You can see it here: http://www.projectorcentral.com/best_projectors_under_$1000.htm
Wish they considered the newer Optoma's, but whatever. Had to laugh as I am indeed a gamer and movie lover, so the HD25e screams to me and he does recommend the HD25 for gamers.
Anyhow, this first time Optoma owner is quite happy so far.
