Yeah, this is why I really need to see them in person -- opinions are so subjective. Another reviewer wrote that he couldn't watch the Mitsubishi without turning the frame interpolation on, because otherwise the handling of motion was much less smooth than the Sony 90ES.
I think the only thing we can say with certainty is that different people have different sensitivities and preferences, and you really need to see with your own eyes and familiar content in order to evaluate properly.
I know that I have an extremely high flicker sensitivity, so this is something that causes real problems for me depending on the particular technology, and implementation of the technology. At CEDIA, I walked into Sim2's demo room and could tell within a few seconds that they were showing the single-chip Nero machine rather than the Lumis 3D Solo. Other people couldn't see the color separation artifacts at all, and loved the image on the Nero.
When I got to see the JVC X7 the other day with Lord of the Rings, I found it more pleasant to watch in some ways than a 3-chip DLP, because even on a 3-chip DLP, I can see the strobing of the panel refresh. I can watch and enjoy 3-chip DLP, but if the D-ILA is even smoother, well, I have to take that into consideration. On the other hand, I usually find shadow details to be more pleasing on the DLPs.
Meanwhile, the 3D on the older JVC models was intolerable to me because I could see the 48Hz-per-eye refresh of the glasses much too strongly. But
, I also saw the Wolf Cub at CEDIA, based off of the X9, and it didn't bother me.
The Lumis 3D Solo is still the best 3D I've seen, bar none.
Perhaps, once you have seen enough machines and compared your own subjective reactions with the reactions of reviewers, you can find a reviewer with whom you agree often, and then that reviewer becomes more of a trusted source. I'm not at that point yet, so the quest to find these projectors to audition continues!
