It is the 700 series.
Together with the 3DXL box or a suitable HTPC, great 3D would be thrown onto the big screen.
I can live with that. Even though I have
the HTPC, my goal here is to keep it out of the equation. I don't want to have to deal with it. It's my toy but the family needs something simple. I just want to get my sources that already do 3D out in 3D if that makes sense.
I don't mind putting another one above my head over the couch. It's hard to describe but the 1080UB is on a small shelf between two windows. It would be easy enough to simply pull a shelf all the way across the windows and then with a little vertical offset, I would be fine. I don't mind doing that. I guess what I was trying to convey is that as much as I'd like to have passive, which it sounds like I'd have to have two for, I'm not willing to have a pile
up there so it starts looking junky. This is my living room, after all. LOL
I'm going to check and see if my 1080UB Pro is on the list. If it is, getting another and slightly lessor 1080 might be an option but I probably can't even find another 1080UB now and I suspect they work better if they are a matched set. That would be a double value because when watching non-3D stuff, I could essentially double my light output for daytime viewing.
Hmmm... Lots to consider. I'm just glad to find this thread. I think I'm finally headed in the right direction thanks to it and probably better for less than I had first thought. I ride the projector and display forums and have for years but they are amazingly quiet when it comes to 3D. It's a wonder I even found this part of the board, but I'm certainly glad I did.
