I found this on the epson projectors, and thought it would be helpful to the discussion on this thread. It answered alot of my questions.
I watched the entire video, then scrolled down to see a detailed description of each model and the difference between each. I didnt see any pricing though.
i think the 6010 is in strong contention for my next projector, as I wanted bright 3d with good placement flexibility (Lens Shift)......among other considerations.
Well that was a quasi informative video. The rep seems to not fully know the product line's capabilities at times. Two things jumped out at me from that video.
1. The 8350 will be continued and there is good reason for that. It is a steal for what it can do for the money.
2. 3D Crosstalk/ghosting is "greatly mitigated" in the 3d models. I know saying crosstalk is eliminated would be a huge mistake but mitigated is not the same as virtually eliminated or some other choice. To me it seems to indicate that one can expect some crosstalk.
I hope I am wrong on the crosstalk thing but doubt it. And I agree with Miss-man that the lack of lens shift in the lower end model is a huge blunder. It will go head to head with the Optoma 33 which does flawless 3d with DLP link glasses. Everyone knows DLP does 3d right. So with no lens shift on either of these models, my nod would go to the HD33 except for the warranty which Epson is excellent with. Step up to the HD3300 and the warranty becomes moot.
So I hope the 3010 can deliver the 3d or it will be a blunder. The other products in the new lineup may well put them in the other 3k+ category. Now Epson is not new to this game so I am curious. Can they deliver better 3d than Sony and JVC using LCD? We will see. I do know that I was about to ebay my 8350 but after watching Lord of the Rings on bluray earlier, I was stunned with the IQ. I may just keep it and get a 720p unit just for the few times I watch 3d. I may be back to my original plan of two PJs after all, one for my 2d viewing and a portable/outback 3d 720p unit that has speakers.
Fortunately time is on my side now. I have a 2d PJ that has lens shift. I have a 61" DLP TV that does 3d right. There are other 3d PJs that are about to be released. Times are good for those who are patient. Back on topic, I hope Epson gets the 3d right on the 3010 because the lack of lens shift is a real disappointment for me. Seems that they forgot what made the 8350 the top selling PJ. Yes IQ is important but the flexibility ultimately sells that unit. It sold me and I am a DLP fanboy.
