And, which model of Panasonic 3D glasses were you using?
The lenses are considerably bigger on the JVC glasses and to me they're more comfortable. Performance is the same as far as I can tell.
I do notice quite a bit a flicker with both pairs of glasses, but I guess I'm just sensitive to it, because my wife said she couldn't notice it at all. It figures -- I see DLP rainbows too. Crosstalk performance seems about the same on the JVC as it is on my Panasonic plasma. In other words, it's not perfect, but it's more than acceptable. And the 3D brightness of the JVC projector is better than I expected even on low lamp mode (I'm using a 110" 16:9 1.4 gain Carada screen, my throw distance is about 12 feet, and I have the JVC's iris all the way open).
The Panasonic 3D glasses are the 2012 TY-ER3D4MU model.
One other thing...I'm having some aggravating handshake/signal strength issues that I haven't had before -- but only when viewing 3D material. I suspect my long (35 foot) in-ceiling cable run is the issue. I'm going to try a signal booster and, if that doesn't work, I'll have to use a wireless HDMI solution. Grrrrr.
I'm curious to hear some feedback on what the 3D firmware upgrade improves. The JVC's 3D performance with the current "bad" firmware exceeded my expectations (which were based on what I'd read here) but if the new firmware improves crosstalk and flicker even more that'd be pretty great.Edited by Schwa - 12/25/12 at 1:12am
