post #181 of 619
what about the vivitek D538W-3D? No vesa port kinda sucks, but its cheaper than this one and just as bright. does 2d to 3d as well. long throw though.

Everyone asking about rainbows - do you guys see rainbows on DLPs, in general. I'd guess, if you do, chances are you will see rainbows on 750 (or 33) as well - both 3D & 2D.

I never see rainbows (unless I specifically look for them) in any DLP projecor (this includes SVGA projectors made 10 years back).

That unit seems to be a total no go. HDMI 1.3, unable to process 1080p 3d without separate convertor. No onboard speakers. Perhaps if one had a good HTPC with a good video card and software I suppose this unit could be made to work but for 50 more why not just get a GT750? I believe anyone with a decent HTPC can output 2d to 3d to the PJ and with more control probably.

As for the other comment from evnow, I don't guess I am not RBE sensitive because I did not see it on the GT720 I had for a while so I don't think I would see it on the 750.

well its real long throw so no good for me, but from reading, i beleive you can actually connect anything you want to it.

Well that is what I thought. I am not aware of any and for the most part folks just have them use the adult ones. Some fit better than others and there is also debate as to whether really young children should watch 3d anyway.

It seems you can only get them in ir. My kid is only 2 1/2 so by the time I need them, there will probably be something new

OK, here are my thoughts: pass on those. They look like 80s tech from a Star Trek series.

they do, but 100 bucks for 4 of them, who cares how they look, do you look at them on your head? supposedly they are used in professional cinemas.

These are the cheapest active glasses I've seen. $15 per extra pair.

yup and i'm not crazy about IR, but if they cheap and work, its worth it. especially if I gotta buy multiple pairs. so with these I can get a couple of pairs for very cheap, or even 4 pairs.

I think these are made using square LCDs just pasted on to the larger glasses. I'm using something similar temporarily - but those are wired.

Anyway, these glasses might be a useful to have a large number of guests enjoy 3D. I think they are likely to be clunky and uncomfortable for regular viewing.

the ones you have that are similar, do they work? these look pretty much unbreakable by the way they are designed. and i can have a couple for the enighbors.

hi im in the uk and about to buy the gt750 can any of you guys post pics/videos of the 750 if possible and a user review please many thanks in advance
post #200 of 619
Here is a link for another review I found for the GT750E.

It was speculated in the HD33 topic that the GT750E is only running a 2x color wheel.
post #201 of 619
it would suck if it only uses 2x color wheel. but there aren't many other choices out there if you don't have 20feet to project from.

Here is a video of GT750 playing Avatar I found on youtube.

I can't find any other videos online.

Rob, let me know when you get your glasses what your impressions are. I still don't feel like I have enough information to make a good decision.

could be a bit as I don't have the projector yet. but i'm hoping soon. I will probably go with RF glasses, 2 pairs at 80 bucks vs 2 pairs at 50 bucks for the dlp ones. since we already have the emitter, it seems the best way to go, especially since the really cheap ones that I posted the link to I haven't heard anything back from the company, otherwise I'd probably go with those.
post #206 of 619
really wish we had more hands on reviews of this thing, i'm worried about rainbows the most. are they really that bad? I mean usually i'm not moving my head while watching a movie, but late at night when i'm sleepy or i'm playing with my phone at the same time, my eyes can wonder. if the stuff is unwatchable, thats a problem.

Received my gt750 today has anyone had a play with the colour settings what's your preferences thanks

Hey guys,

I'm SERIOUSLY considering getting this projector, and I just read through the entire thread. The KEY bonus for this projector over the others I was looking at (Epson 8350 and Viewsonic Pro8200) is the SCREEN size you can get. I wanted AT LEAST 120" from 10' and this one will give me like 150" at 8'.

Anyways, I read some stuff about the Lens melting on the GT720, and with a 1 year warranty, it isn't exactly comforting. I think that's my biggest hurdle to overcome right now.

Viewsonic has the Pro8200 @ 800$ with 3 year warranty. But that one will only do like 100" @ 10'

I want a GIANT Immersive Experience, so much so, that I'm willing to pass up on the 1080p (which is UNHEARD of for someone like me).

But like others have mentioned, most of us, view content that's 720p or less.
PS3, Xbox, Wii, DVD, HD Digital Cable (720p/1080i), Blu Ray is the only thing that's 1080p, and at 30$ a pop, I don't buy many of them.

So, it makes "tolerating" a 720p setup a lot more bearable, and I'm sure it'll still look better than the standard Theater setups.

I think you should go for it. I have a GT720 and I have no problems with it. I use it for my 220in outdoor screen for family movie night and video games. Plus, you are right, most material is not 1080p. I use my JVC for 1080p movies and it gets used 2-4 hours a week compared to 40+ on my other 2 720p projectors a week. Plus, its very portable. I take my GT720 everywhere. I use it in my room and get an 84in size from about 4 feet away. I take it in my main theater and watch sports or I take it outside. I also have a portable screen that I use it with, a 120in tripod screen. It's very useful as you can see. The GT750 should be brighter and much better because its 3D. With dlp link glasses, they are cheaper than other brands. So good luck

Thank you for your post, I appreciate the time you took to provide feedback and I'm really thinking I'm gonna go for this GT750. It'll be pretty awesome to be able to host 3D Move nights at my house on a 150" screen, and yes, with the added lumens, it should be able to display a 150" screen pretty brightly.
