I understand why everyone is skeptical. I don't recall Cine4home making a statement like that last year, using the term 'significant improvement in 3D from last year' is no doubt raising the anticipation level. Of course it doesn't take into account the potential for flicker as we've seen in the previous models. I don't think anything is going to trump the DLP's in this regard. The DLP's are so fast, it's like watching 2D, no eye strain at all. I recently pained my way through 'Prometheus 3D' further proving that good 3D does not make a movie... good. (huge Aliens fan, WTF was this?)
The unanimously positive comments on the e-shift improvement is what has me excited for the RS56 to arrive. I was already a fan of e-shift 1 and can't wait to see what they changed.
Being able to control the sharpening based on the content (keeping blurred areas blurred) is excellent if it's well executed. This should easily surpass the RC sharpening technique on my relatively large screen. The increased pixel density alone is what makes a big difference for the RS55 vs. all other projectors I demo'd this year.
I think based on past history we should be nervously optimistic (at least I know the vets probably are now entering our third iteration), but here's hoping the old adage "third times a charm" comes true. Not quite ready to pull out the 3D-TS Woody quite yet but after reading the past couple reviews and talking to my buddy Mark I'm feeling more optimistic than nervous these days!
