Yes, that indeed is the case. Unfortunately, the monoprice description/spec page does not make this clear. In fact, if you read the manual, the setup that I had 3D Blu-ray player > 3D creator > 3D ready projector was supposedly supported without other clarifications or exceptions stated. Moreover, because most of these new low-cost, low-powered, long-life LED projectors people get now have an extremely low lumens rating, image brightness with the glasses on inevitably deteriorates the said quality of the film. Watching 3D will be by far less enjoyable with such projectors in contrast to a highly adjustable 3D monitor display.
