About the Sainsonic glasses : even if manual says 120Hz, it works great in 144Hz (loss in luminosity is important with theses glasses, but you'll just have to activate "normal mode" for your lamp on Benq w1070. In my opinion, it's a great deal for the price - about 30€ on this side of Atlantic)
You can also buy the official BenQ glasses or the Volfoni Edge 1.1+ (tested and approved by users here : http://www.cinetson.org/phpBB3/projecteurs-f2/benq-w1070-dlp-full-ready-899-euros-test-ligne-t36433.html
Greetings from France !
Thanks for all the interesting info. I am also following the French forum although I miss a lot due to google translation and it gets tiring after a while. Let me ask you will they not work then with the1080p 3D the optoma glasses through 1.4 HDMI? Are they not backward compatible? I find it hard to believe but please let me know as I will try to find different glasses should I decide to buy the w1070.
Edit: I just show the glasses you bought from Amazon.fr . They are not the same like the ones from ebay> well you should know that amazon.co.uk has them but they are not refered to us 144hz. Item model number: Zodiac 203 ASIN: B007PWUQFK
Check the description from the two amazonsAmazonFR:
Use of technology 144Hz of new, advanced generation as the level of other produces 120 HzAmazonUK:
3D Glasses type Active shutter 3D glasses
no mention of 144Hz which makes me think that tthe 120Hz work just fine for this projector even with 1080p 3D. I will keep on looking though.

I know but they cost more to send them back and get new ones and I want to save the money for better quality glasses. It's just me as I have had terrible experienece with cheap chinese products in the past and have now decided to buy only brand name electronics when the price has dropped. I am sure your glasses will be fine you have nothing to worry about. I didn't mean to worry you with my experience but it is what it is. Maybe I have pressed the buttton harder than I should have.
Edit: I just saw that your seller was different than mine(which was directly from China) it might be the case that my seller had a bad batch so even better for you. Generally importing directly from china might cause all kinds of rpoblems as stock is not checked the way a US seller will.Edited by elgriego - 12/11/12 at 11:08am
