I have an Epson 7500, and 9500 and a Sony G90 for 2D - I'm covered! For 3D the Acer has been fantastic - my few complaints have been overcome by activating my four remaining brain cells and coming up with simple solutions that work - ceiling mount with an extension for example. I tried it on my lap, but the 3D was so orgasmically good I got overly excited and I couldn't keep the projector in one position.
And what about gaming? - no ghosting with the Acer for gaming, so it looks like a multiple projector solution for some of those individuals.
I see no RBE in 3D mode, but I have some problems in 2D mode. You shouldn't assume that everyone else has the same RBE problem that you do or that it will be a problem with DLP in 3D mode.
I think you live in the Montreal area (maybe I'm wrong). If you're ever interested in seeing the Acer in action drop me a PM. I'm only a few hours away near Kingston, Ontario (assuming you're near Montreal). I'll also show you what a true fade to black looks like on my gamma corrected Sony G90 - that's something not many have witnessed in a totally light controlled room.
The great thing about the 3D 720p DLPs is that they are a benchmark when it comes to value and hopefully keep the big boys constantly scrambling to provide relative value for their products! Is that a bad thing?
Glad you enjoyed my post
I enjoyed doing it and I have to admit, you are one of my most favorite posters...........I also have to admit that I love F'ing with you
Your posts are hilarious though, keep it up!
You might not have ghosting in gaming, but again...............you get..........RBE...............I will keep my ghosting thank you very much!
Just because you are supposedly
not seeing RBE in 3d mode does not mean others are not. I have read many reports of people still seeing RBE in 3d mode on the ACER. To be fair, I have also read that some see less RBE in 3d mode, but the fact that quite a few still see RBE in 3d tells me ALL I need to know knowing how sensitive I am to this horrible artifact
RBE, even a little of it just kills the movie/game, etc.....experience for me
, but thats just me. Throw in the horrible placement options, horrible contrast, etc........and even at $500, FOR ME this would be a terrible buy. Even a $500 projector is a horrible value if you cant get around one of its drawbacks which there is no doubt I would not. However, if you are one who does not see or is not bothered by RBE, and you can make this ACER work in your room and you dont mind dealing with a HTPC, then at that point, its a great value!
FOR ME though, until those things are eliminated, I would not throw out $100, much less $500 for the ACER and in light of that, I dont agree with you that the 720p DLPs are a benchmark in value (for me at least) since I cant find ANY value in a projector that I could not live with (which is the case with single chip DLP for me).
A 3 projector solution sounds like a complete and total headache IMHO, but if it works for you than that is all that matters.
Understand though that my feelings on the ACER are just in reference TO ME. I have actually tried to sell a good friend of mine on the ACER as far as his 3d plans go since he is big into his PC, does not have a RBE issue for 2d (so I assume 3d wont be an issue) and was wanting to get into the 3d experience for relatively cheap.........in light of all that, the ACER is a no brainer (and he has plenty of placement flexibility with his room as well).
You are wrong, I dont live in Montreal. I live in Denver (along with Sam). In light of everything I said above, I have VERY little interest in seeing the ACER at this point since it would only be a downgrade overall
to my RS40 as far as 3d goes
2d is not even worth mentioning since the 40 will kill that little ACER in this department!
The biggest interest I have in seeing the ACER at this point in time is to just confirm that I would see RBE in 3d mode just like I have seen RBE in 2d mode on every
single chip DLP I have ever viewed (some have been better than others, but I have never seen one that RBE was even close to totally gone and I have never seen one that I would want to view day in and day out because of this one unfortunate fact). I would love to see the new LED DLPs since many have said RBE is a thing of the past with those, but they need to dip below ~5k before I could even justify a purchase and have 3d capability........do you happen to have one of these even though they dont exist yet?
Thank you for the invite though and I will drop you a PM if I am ever in the area since I WOULD LOVE to see your G90 in action as I have somehow never seen one (is yours corrected? EDIT: Just noticed you said it was.......would love to see this G90!) and have heard so many good things over the years. What kind of screen are you using with your G90 again? I bet those fade to blacks are a thing of beauty!
If you are ever in Denver you are more than welcome to come and check out the best 2d/3d projector on the market right now (RS40), but you might miss seeing RBE which I cant do much about unless we eat some ACID before the demo
I am sure SAM would be happy to give you a demo of his amazing
HT as well and we could just make a day out of it.
Have you seen SAW 3d yet DejaVu? I bought this last night, but have not watched it yet. What is your opinion on this disc as far as the 3d factor goes?
