My glasses arrived today and manage to do some test.
Projector design impression:
The projector is small and look more like a business presentation projector. The light leakage from the projector is quite bad. I can see the projector internal through the vent. A DIY light shield should solve the problem. Zoom is quite limited so make sure you get your distance correct. I'm using 114" screen from 13'.
2D impression: If your main objective is 2D movie, get a proper full HD projector. The difference is there and full HD projector is definitely sharper than 720p projector. I haven't done any serious calibration except the simple brightness and contrast settings. The comparison is done with calibrated BENQ W6000.
3D impression and working format:
1. Using Prime Dune 3.0, setting to 720p 60hz, I can output SBS format movie to the projector and enable 3D. But it wouldn't auto detect and need to choose the 3D format to Side by side mode. Video quality is quite low compare to using PC with Nvidia 3DTV Play due to the resolution is cut to half. Once going for 1080p 60hz, again setting the 3D format to SBS, the movie is sharper due to higher pixel count. Now in this setup, it looks as good as PC using Nvidia 3DTV Play. Using pc and ffdshow to do a resize of 1920x1080 to 2560x720 and playback using Nvidia 3D Player, I manage to get a sharper 3D video.
2. PC with 3DTV Play. No issue. Game is working fine. 3D stereo player is working. Note that it is possible to send 720p 120hz to the projector so theoretically it should work with 3D Vision package with Nvidia glasses. Just turn of DLP 3D to disable the white flash and the 3D warning. Avatar in 3D is awesome and I feel it is better than local cinema using passive polarization. The color looks good and zero crosstalk.
Don't use the latest 270.56 driver as there is some bugs that prevent the 3D video.
3. PS3 - First time booting up the PS3, the display will be detected as 3D capable display. Run Killzone 3 and go to the option to enable 3D. No hassle at all and work without any tweaking. Only comment is due to PS3 3D processing limitation, the resolution of the game seems to be lower than 2D mode. Image quality is a bit lower but you get 3D instead. Still waiting for sharpshooter to try out. Overall for 3D gaming, I would recommend a powerful PC as in 3D, you don't sacrifice any visual quality except for those game that need to turn off shadow or some advance option due to rendering problem.
Additional note: when I switch the prime 3.0 to 720p 60hz, I get a black and white picture. After checking out the menu, I found out the saturation and tint is at 0. Default is 50 so after changing the value back to 50, the color look just right.
1. 1.4a framepacking 720p working. Haven't try 1080p 24hz.
2. SBS work for both 720p and 1080p at 60hz. Can't auto detect. Didn't try out 50hz. That's mean if your cable tv output 720p SBS or 1080p SBS @ 60hz, it should work.
3. PS3 - OK. No issue encounter.
Source: PC with GTX560 and Dune Prime 3.0
AV Receiver: Denon 4311
Cable: 35ft Monoprice 24awg cable which is dirt cheap and work without problem. The cable able to passthrough 1080p 60hz 12bit color. Don't waste your money on expensive HDMI cable.
My settings after calibration with test pattern. No greyscale tuning as I'm not sure if it is recommended to put the probe behind the glasses to take measurement is accurate. Anyway, looking at the RGB and greyscale pattern, I would say the color is pretty good.
HTPC setting: Using Nvidia 560 ti, RGB output. full range.
Acer setting: Make sure you set the HDMI range from Auto to Full range. If not you will crush the black level.
R, G, B : untouched.
Wish list for the projector: Able to set multiple profile for projector. Dedicated remote button or at least a discreet IR code for 3D Mode, 3D invert, 3D Off/DLP.
