1. Plasma 50" screen full hd. Pros :Perfect image quality, Full HD gaming, no input lag. cons: No 3d, image retention, only 50 inches (!!!), I dont watch tv
2. Plasma 50" 3D. pros as above with :3d cons : 3d working in 720p due to hdmi 1.4 limitations, expencive solution, 3d is probably dark like in my samsung monitor (the only thing i hate about 3d)
3. H5360 : pros 200+ inches , (i got a big living room), huge screen 3d, I get to keep my 3d vision kit. cons: don't know if 3d is dark like on the samsung, games look bad at 1280x 720 on my monitor maybe a 200 inch sceen makes up for it, I cannot see it no store has a projector here especialy 3d one. Maybe have to paint the wall with reflective color for 3d
4. Full hd projector. Pros: Hd gaming , hd blue rays. 200+. Cons: Expencive to buy and maintain, I loose 3d
don't know what to do.
First post for me as well, hello everyone.
I upgraded from a 22" samsung 3d monitor this Christmas, and the h5360 in 3d is unbelievable. The main advantage is ghost-free 3d image.
If you have the samsung you know what I'm talking about: 2 images where you're supposed to see one of them. In gaming it is a great issue, since - as far as my experience with the 22"syncmaster goes - you're limited to small separation from the 2 images, hence low depth perception.
First thing I tried when connecting the h5360 has been cranking the depth all the way up to see if I could spot some double image (especially on critical spots like white parts, lights, etc); nothing. Everything is perfect and much brighter then the lcd.
So, for 3d gaming, I don't think there's a better solution, having the room for a projector.
I haven't seen a plasma 3d screen in action though, only lcd (at home with the syncmaster I own and in stores with Sony Bravias and Samsung led tv), but the acer blows them all away. Really impressive.
I keep a 42" panasonic full hd plasma in the same room, in case I'm not satisfied with bluray rendition. For now I must say that the bigger screen makes it up for the resolution loss. Of course the plasma has an incredible image quality, but since I'm still projecting on a wall (that I still need to fix and paint), I'm really happy.
If your main objective is playing 3d games on a big immersive screen, buy a projector. 3D needs the biggest screen you can get to shine.
Your monitor has a 1680x1050 resolution, so 720p images don't quite look that good on it. The acer has a native 720p resolution; if you have a good graphic card (I have a gtx480) at that resolution you can add every post-processing effect and filter you like without compromizing performances.
Hope this helps.
As others have said, the best solution would be having 2 different projectors;but it's expensive and maybe impractical.
