Acer H5360BD HDMI 1.4 3D Projector - Page 6

post #151 of 383
If you want to try out Nvidia 3D glasses, you have to trick your pc with H5360.inf so that Nvidia 3D vision will detect the display as H5360, not H5360BD (I didn't try but theoretically it should work).

Ok ... you mentioned this before. Maybe I will give it a try ...

Thanks!

While I have been waiting for Acer to decide that their customers in US are worthy of receiving the H5360BD I decided to fabricate a custom mount for it. It is designed to mount to a Chief RPA ceiling mount and it was fabricating from an old Chief custom projector mount. I have enclosed some photos with this post. Does anyone have new information about when the projector will be released in the US?

Did you use the projector with bluray 3D player? I would like to buy this projector but to watch bluray 3D played through a player rather than PC's or PS3.. thanx, ur

You are finding out what us High Power and Silverstar screen owners have known for a while: A nice bright image is fun to watch. With my Silverstar that Acer is downright blinding in 2D though. Hence the 3D only usage for me.

I don't have a bluray 3D player but PS3 3D work fine. I don't see a reason why bluray 3D player wouldn't work as my PC use 3DTV Play which is HDMI 1.4 3D standard. I try 1080p 24hz 1.4 3D and working fine.

okay, thanx.... by the way, will the acer dlp 3D glasses work for the configuration : bluray 3D player + acer H5360bd + HDMI 1.4 cable + acer dlp glasses . I live far and I do not want to miss something when ordering
post #159 of 383
As long as your glasses is DLP-Link compatible it should work. Your setup should work. Anyway, do you own a 1.4 compatible receiver? As for the cable, you can get it cheap from monoprice. I get the 40ft premium HDMI cable and it work for 3D just fine. Let me know if Acer 3D glasses had any color shift or lighter color on all 4 corners of the lens.

I read May somewhere, can't remember exactly where but definitely read May.

Nice thread!

I own a PS3 and a PC with a GTX480.

My question: Do I need "Acer" glasses with the H5360BD beamer to enjoy both PS3 and Nvidia content? Or do I need different SONY PS3 and Nvidia glasses? (with 3D content that is. Obviously not standard 2D)

Sorry if this a dumb question, I tried to google but I can't find a clear answer.

Also can I use a standard white projector screen or do I need a special surface?

Regards and thank you all who take time to review the projector

The dlp link glasses will work for anything. To play pc games you need the 3D vision kit, and it has it's own glasses. You can use them and the dlp link glasses at the same time, but if using the nVidia glasses it is better to turn off the dlp link flash. 3DHeaven's ultraclear glasses are more comfortable than nVidia's so you could just use them. The PS3 will use the normal dlp link glasses.
Any screen will work, but the higher the gain the brighter the 3D image will be.

Our newest review about the H5360BD is online :

http://www.audiovideohd.fr/tests/283...H5360BD-0.html
post #165 of 383
I can't read that

Does this projector have the eye reverse problem of the other 120Hz projectors?
post #166 of 383
post #167 of 383
The eye reverse issue with H5360BD happen 50% of the time using Nvidia 3DTV Play. Not a biggie as once you invert the 3D image, it'll stay correct even if you switch from 3D movie to 3D gaming.
post #168 of 383
Hmmm I wonder what is up with the delayed release here in the US. I would hate to think you Europeans are guinea pigs on this. Just saying. We are a huge market here and the unit is still unavailable and nothing on the company page about it here. Funny thing right there but if Acer needs a Beta tester I am game. I will put it through it's paces.

Are we looking at Aug/Sept release now? I'm ready for some leaked info

I can't tell from reading the review if they tested the 3D using DLP-Link. If so, I would think it would be even better performance with IR or RF AS-Glasses.

P.S. I just noticed there is no Vesa 3-pin port for an external emitter, so I guess you can only use DLP-Link. Damn it!
post #171 of 383
I ended up just buying the Optoma 3D-XL from Tru3d for 299 without glasses, to use with my Acer 5360 non BD. I will probably go dual passive sometime so I will need two of them.

you could do it out from a computer, but since this doesn't support 3dvision, i don't know how that would work. 3dmagic.com seems to say that it will work with 3dtv play, i'll have to email them. they also seem to have a compatitlble nvidia product that is much cheaper than the nvidia glasses.

I'm considering getting one of these projectors in the near future, but here is my question... I'm building a PC, and I need to buy a video card really soon. My budget is supposed to be $135 to $140 for a video card. The thinking is that once B3 and Skyrim are out, then I will sell this temporary video card, hopefully get about $85 for it, and then invest in a more powerful card that seems to work well with B3 and Skyrim.


I'm very tempted to buy this Sapphire HD 5850 at Amazon.com for $150 shipped. It's over my budget, but the 5850 is a strong card for $150 shipped. I was originally looking for a GTX 460 1 gig, but couldn't seem to find one for the price I was looking for. Will the 5850 work good on this Acer using the iZ3D or DDD drivers?

Should I avoid AMD and get an Nvidia card if I'm ever going to buy this projector? (not a sure thing that I'll be buying it, kinda rather have a true 1080p 2D projector, it's just the original Acer is so cheap.)


On a side note, I have a Samsung PN50C680 1080p 3D plasma that I'm also going to be using with this video card. I originally was thinking Nvidia, so I could use 3DTV play, but I'm hoping that AMD has some kind of comparable solution for their cards?
post #174 of 383
If you play PC game, get Nvidia. 3D Vision driver is much better. I'm not sure AMD + iZ3D support 1.4 3D TV but 3DTV Play definitely work.
post #175 of 383
also, consider just getting the Acer 5360 non BD and take the 300 dollars you save and put toward a better video card.

Actually, in all likelihood, I would be getting the "old" version of the Acer, but I can't afford to spend any more on the video card right now. My limit is $150. My plan is to use the video card that I get for my build for about 8 or 9 months, then try to sell it for around $85 or $90 if I'm lucky, and then take that $85 or $90 and put it towards a 560 Ti, which should be lower in price by that time.

I need to keep the costs of my overall build down right now, and later on down the line, I'll just flip my video card and do an upgrade. I haven't played PC games in 10 years, so I'm thinking I'll be pretty impressed with a GTX 460 or a HD 5850.

Or will the new one also support Nvidia?

as the post http: //3dvision-blog.com/acer-h5360bd-is-an-affordable-3d-projector-with-hdmi-1-4a-support/,IF ITS TURE, Acer H5360BD will no longer support Nvidia 3D vision. I may support your decision, H5360(previous model)
support DLP 3D and Nvidia 3D, +Optoma 3D-XL, support 3D Blu-ray player and PS3, the total cost is similar or almost same to new H5360BD. Why not? the only one cons is we need to purchase one more HDMI cable and connecting is a little bit more complicated

nVidia should work just fine with this projector if you use the 3dtvplay or whatever it is called, they made to work with hdmi 1.4 3d tv's.
post #180 of 383
Well, for crying out loud, when is this thing going to be available already? I am eager to try this unit out if it is not too silly expensive above other units. If so, I may be back to examining the 3d solution with the 1920X1080 units. Matter of fact, if they get that working right for 3d on the higher def units I will go that route so perhaps waiting is best for me.
