The Sony VPL VW90ES 3D Owner's Thread - Page 45

post #1321 of 1343
Anyone that has got a vw90 calibrated in a total dark room with dark coloured walls and ceiling, that could share their settings?
My vw90 has 80 hours on its first lamp. A calibration at 500hours and up, I don´t think is useful for me...

Mostly interested in wich settings incl iris adjust in the service menu that gives the best blacks and still not loosing detail in dark scenes.

Hello

If it possible to find some manual how setup 3d setting, and don''t have any problems, like head ache and etc. Sony sopport just said TURN IT OF, but this is solution what I don't real like. I was happy with my Infocus for 2D pictures, and now I have this Sony VPL-VW90ES for 4 times more money and use also for 2d only. Thanks

Can I use those Real3D glasses with Sony VPL-VW90ES projector ??? I never had any problems with headache in IMAX.

I began to have a weird problem with my VW90ES. The projector comes on by itself.

I have tested it with other remote controls used nearby to see if those in our kitchen could possibly trigger the on function of the projector and no-go. After much testing I finally determined that the projector is triggered on only in the daytime when the window blind is up and bright sunlight reflects in off the pool water through the window. I would never guess that an IR controlled device could be triggered with sunlight reflected off the pool water but it does.

Has anyone else ever noticed this phenomena or something similar?

No those are passive glasses, the sony is a active 3d projector. The playstation glasses work and cost about 20 bucks.

Interested in what sort of hours you all are getting from your bulbs in this projector. I have tried both Osram and Philips. The Osram is quite a bit more expensive but I get 4-6 times the hours so in the long run the Osram is lower cost per hour of viewing time.

I just replaced a Philips that lased 700 hours when the base cracked, which could have been caused by my mysterious IR triggering on by itself and then I shut it off right away. Still other Philips bulbs haven't lasted the full 2000 hours even before this auto power on problem.

Been using an OSRAM bulb for a couple days and I can say without a doubt these bulbs are superior from the start. To have a spare on hand I bought two and the spare is a new philips. I tried both to test. Both are brand new but the OSRAM is easily twice as bright and the 3D quality is much cleaner. I never knew the brand bulb was so critical to the quality of the 3D. I'll keep the Philips as it is OK for 2D but for best 3D the OSRAM will be my regular. I may even buy a third new bulb and just have the spare be another OSRAM. The bare bulbs without housing are $150 with shipping so based on the 3D quality alone, it will be worth the cost to keep OSRAM on standby. Let's see how the superior quality holds up as the OSRAM only has 15 hours so far. I guess I forgot how good the OSRAM bulbs are since been using Philips for the past year.

How is your new bulb holding up? I'm interested to know if it brightens up the 3d that much, How about the Ghosting? does it clean up the 90es with the extra brightness from the bulb.

The super bright of the new Osram is gone but after 140 hours it is still looking quite good, much better and brighter than the new Philips bulbs. There is no ghosting on any of the new movies I have viewed. 3D depth range is still very good. Previously with the Philips bulbs I had a small amount of ghosting but nothing to complain about since it was only a brief moment. Typically it happened on white text over black background during the credits but even now that is non-existent.

I used the Monster Vision glasses because you can tweak them to help with the 3d brightness, as far as the firmware, I'm not sure
post #1333 of 1343
Thanks

And have you compared Monster Vision to Xpand glasses?
As far as i know, Xpand have no problems with brightness either.

I'm on the fence as to rather or not to buy a VW90ES (b-stock) or just splurge and get the new HW55ES.

The 90 is substantially less expensive than the 55.

 

My theater is completely dark, screen is 103" diagonal with a throw distance somewhere between 11-12 ft.

 

I like the idea of saving money if the 90 will make me happy. :) Oh I don't plan to watch 3D.

What should I do???

The 90 has a great 2d picture, not to mention it is a very nicely built projector with automatic lens shift,focus,zoom, all via the remote, (the 3d is ok, would not be as good as the 55es.) I used my 90es on a 100'' screen and it looked very good, Make sure you are purchasing for a very good price to make it worth it to you.

If you are not going to watch 3D then why not jump on the new in box B stock VW Pro deal at avscience?  I would have gone that way but wanted the option to do an occasional 3D.

Or get the reconditioned 90ES which has awesome 2D.

Actually that is exactly what I ended up going with, the VWPRO1 from avscience. Brand new/old stock with extra bulb. :)
