As far as the settings, do most people watch 3D on bright? I guess I wasn't expecting that much of a drop in brightness with dlp-link 3D glasses. Or is it just with these particular RealD glasses?
I'm using the Mitsubishi 3dc-1000 kit glasses at the moment. The RealD glasses were $600 at the beginning of the year. RealD also sells Mitsubishi tv and glasses for professional use so I would expect them to look great.
I just like the picture set to bright because it really brings out the 3d for me because I can see more of the picture.
Everyone seems to like the Optomas except for the polarization rainbows it makes it the corners of the screen. It comes from the plastic of the screen and the angle at which polarization of the lenses are.
The viewsonics and the Optomas are the same glasses except the viewsonics can do both lenses left or right eye (this is good for split screen gaming so each player can get a full screen using side by side or top/bottom split screen) and the Optomas can switch there eyes with the push of a button so you don't have to go into the tv menu to change from normal or reverse. These are good if you have ir glasses like me because the can be synced in the same way as the ir glasses. Double check which pair does what, I might have gotten them backwards but that is the function of these. They are durable and comfortable as long as you treat them delicately.
All in all if I get dlp link glasses I am getting RealD glasses because they are the best but no one seems to have a pair to comment on them. The were $400 about a month or two ago. I would expect more dlp link glasses to come out and prices to drop as the 3d projectors start rolling out.
RealD glasses let in the most light but there is a drop in brightness no matter what glasses you use. If I wanted to watch something just for its picture quality I would just watch it in 2d. For 3d I want the most 3d experience and bright mode with deepfield imager really makes it pop. It's really strange that there is that much difference in depth based on brightness.
