One is that as that lamp passes 500-1000 hours, that ghosting starts getting much more visible. # 2 is the Epson still has enough X-talk to be a major problem in 3D games, though I only tried X3-Terran Conflict and The Witcher 2 briefly on the Epson, they were both problematic compared to the Benq.
I am not a huge gamer, but so far the only game I've even liked 3D in was X3: Albion Prelude / Terran Conflict. Flying into a space dock gives you an almost Treky feel like you are controlling a movie, but even then I can't play it forever like that. If anyone wants to see some super-cool looking Space 3D, I highly recommend Albion Prelude, but you do have to install some non-included custom 3D mods to fix the hud. I just cannot take playing any other game in 3D thus far (well Flight Simulator X was kind of neat in 3D now that I think about it), but that's it. Though again, I haven't played many games (maybe 10 in 2 years for a few hours total).
Hey coderguy, I love Albion Prelude, I didn't know there was a 3d mod for it though, that sounds cool. I had a massive savegame game going with the XRM mod but the latest 3.0 update might have toasted that game, even though I had steam set to not automatically update X3 AP. It's not a game I typically recommend to people though, because it is so unconventional and takes a lot of patience to learn how to play. I have my heart set on a HC5, but I was only intending to use the 2d, but if you can play x3 in 3d, hmm, maybe I should look into some 3d glasses...
