Both will work great with the 1070 and are well made. They are more comfortable that the Benq's If you decide on the 3D Active be sure to get them from Dimensionaloptics direct since they have the new version that will work with the 1070. I would also let them know that you will be using the glasses with that projector. Dimensionaloptics even sent me ubs rechargers with the glasses. If you give them a call and ask they might do the same for you if you buy a few pairs. This makes their deal even better.

The red glasses are not the same as the black ones you originally pointed to The red ones are similar to the Sansonic glasses and do not block the red flash that well. The Black ones are very good. I would suggest not using the red ones. Regarding the best glasses that I have tried.

1. Benq expensive and can be uncomfortable. (You can use a hair dryer to make adjustments to make them fit better) (Expensive and non rechargeable)
2. 3DActive Dimensional Optics $49 per pair. Nearly as good as the Benq and they block the red flash very well (Rechargeable and come with nice case)
3. These 3D DlP glasses are also very good and are back to $59 for two pairs. They block the red flash very well. These are the same as the Monoprice glasses which cost more

4. Sansonic., not much less in cost than the 3DTV glasses that fit well but do not totally block the red flash. (Rechargeable)
4. Okba. very light and cheap but do not totally block the red flash. (Rechargeable)

Well, it appears the glasses I bought before were 144hz versions, because the new ones I just got which specifically said 144hz in the item description, have the same tag inside the limb, and box description is the same. In spite of Amazon saying the other ones were for Mits tv's and projectors, and nothing about 144hz, they appeared to work fine and I'm going to say were the exact same thing I just got today.

So if you get some 3Active glasses with a sticker that says GL410 with a serial number inside the limb, then it's probably a 144hz version. Unless someone else here can refute that, that's the story I'm stick'n to.

It is more simple than that. If you can see 3D using the W1070 then they are 144Hz, if you cannot they are not 144Hz, simple. It is not a matter of degrees of satisfaction. The frequency of flashing of the projector (to put it simply) MUST match the flashing of the individual eyes of the glasses to work. It works or it does not.

Ok, well mines a W7000, not the 1070. Not sure if they're the same or not.

That's true only if the w1070 goes into 3d mode by itself, i.e. it plays in framepacking mode, and needs 144hz glaases.

If you play an SBS file, at 1080i50 or i60, then you use the projector menu to enter side-by-side mode.. well, in this way the projector plays at 120hz and any old dlp-link glasses will do fine (as long as they can sync with the red flash)

This thread is 'Benq W1070 144Hz Compatible DLP-LINK 3D Glasses' not W7000 hence when a question is asked it is assumed that you have a W1070.

That may well be the case, I do not know, I assume you are correct? BUT we were talking about the 144Hz glasses being used in general mode (i.e. frame packing) so my comments stand!!

Are the glasses from TrueDepth the only ones that offer the option of dual play gaming I.e. able to switch off left eye, right eye?

I have four of these and they are the dog's bollocks! Light, very comfortable, my wife wears them over her corrective glasses no problem.
They never lose sync on me and when you get up and come back they regain it in less than 2 seconds.

Since I do not know what you mean by red flash, I assume they block that as well. Oh and the less than two hour charge lasts for at least ten movies.

Highly recommended!!

Having same problem relative to my Optoma HD25 LV which, as far as I can tell from the forums, and some limited information from an asian Optoma site, is identical as far as the chip set running at 144hz. Did you ever sort your issue out? I'm assuming that what you discovered is that the glasses gave you some really crappy image when using the emitter and it just flat out looks like the glasses are running at a different flicker speed than the image is running?

Are there any other manufacturer name and models for these. I think they are the same as the HB Optoelectronics HBS03D. But those cant' be found anywhere. And the Hi-Shock , model YDD3PG can't be found from a reliable seller.

YDD3PG is the mfg name, distributors just rabadge them. I bought the HBS03D from Amazon when they were available and the manual was labelled YDD3PG. They can also be bought directly, but I can't really read the details since it's all in Chinese.

Hi folks, not been on this thread for a while, but thought it was worth a post now that I've spent a lot of time watching my w1070 with 3 different pairs of glasses. I've used the Sainsonics:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SainSonic-144Hz-for-Optoma-3D-DLP-Link-Ready-Projector-Active-Shutter-Glasses-/170864768370?pt=UK_Sound_Vision_3D_TV_Glasses_Accessories&hash=item27c8557572

the True Depths (v3.5):

http://www.amazon.com/True-Depth-3D-DLP-LINK-Rechargeable/dp/B0053T5QPW/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1370555804&sr=1-1&keywords=True+Depth+3D+DLP-LINK+Rechargeable+3D+Glasses+%282+Pairs%29

and the 3DTV Corps (latest version from Amazon in late April, link below has still got the out of date picture with the 'solid' arms on the glasses, but it's the 'hollowed out' arms i.e. new version you receive):

http://www.amazon.com/3DTV-Corp-DLP-LINK-Projectors-Mitsubishi/dp/B004G2VJM6/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1370555740&sr=1-1&keywords=3DTV+Corp+DLP-LINK+3D+Glasses+2+Pairs+for+ALL+3D+Ready+DLP+Projectors+and+ALL+Samsung+and+Mitsubishi+DLP+TV%27s

I've posted previously in a fair bit of detail regarding the Sainsonics and True Depths, with me finding personally that there's not much between their performance.

Having now spent a good bit of viewing time using the 3DTV Corps I can say I like them, but they're not perfect either. Yep, they feel good quality wise and are comfortable to wear, but if you turn your head left or right when wearing them then the colour tone on the screen changes! Move one way and the picture gets 'bluer', turn your head the other way and it gets 'redder'. Hey, you're likely going to keep your head straight on to the screen watching movies, but I find it weird how the colour tone changes with forced head movement nonetheless.

Anyway, in summary I'd say that all 3 of the glasses perform well enough to be a satisfactory buy for watching 3D on the w1070. If I had to pick just one of the 3 brands I've tried, Sainsonics / True Depths / 3DTV Corps, I'd go for the Sainsonics. They're the cheapest and for me the performance is as good as the True Depths or the 3DTV Corps. The True Depths are too expensive for minimal (if any) performance gain against the Sainsonics. And the 3DTV Corps are more expensive than the Sainsonics, particularly if buying them in the UK. I've got 4 pairs of the Sainsonics and not one of them has lost sync at anytime as yet, whereas the True Depths and 3DTV Corps have. So the Sainsonics are the best bang for the buck for me, but I can also say that the 3DTV Corps are a good option too if you can get them for $30 or so a pair e.g. in the US.

All just my personal experience/opinion and hope this helps. Happy viewing! smile.gif

A few if you are talking about ps3 motorstorm apocalypse. Though I have gotten 3d from a 3d media player, I can not get it to work on motorstorm apocalypse, my only 3d game. 3D option is GREYd out on the menu screen, and the game only seems to be outputting in 480p, is that normal? Thanks in advance!
post #495 of 800
This may be a bit off topic, but since you guys seem to know so much about this stuff, I'm hoping you won't mind and that it will be a quick and easy question for you. I have the W1070 and to make the 3D option come available in the menu (as instructed by BenQ tech. support), I need to set my DVR output resolution to 720 (instead of 1080 - and yes, I'm attempting to watch 3D movies provided by my cable company). Does anyone understand why I need to change the output resolution to 720? Am I missing out on quality given that change? Thanks in advance!

The W1070 will not perform 3D with a 1080p60 input. (See page 59 of the instructions.)

The W1070 can go into side-by-side 3D mode with 1080i60 input. [So if your cable company was sending you side-by-side mode, you might need to set your DVR output resolution to 1080 interlaced.)

The W1070 can go into top-bottom 3D mode with 1080p24 input, or 720p60 input.

Chances are your cable company is sending you 720p60, and when the video is in 3D it is in top-bottom mode. If that is the case, it's appropriate to set the DVR to 720p and you should not be losing any of the quality present in the cable transmission. The W1070 will do its Left Right alternation at 120Hz though, not at 144Hz.

I'm not all that keen on 720p top-bottom 3D myself. Left and Right are only 360 pixels high: not much vertical resolution.

Perhaps you haven't set your PS3 to 3D? Go to display settings, and select automatic detect. It should detect that you have a 3D TV. Then hopefully the 3D option in Motorstorm will be enabled.

I bought two J3925 since these were the only ones available, but I see a red tint at the upper left portion of the screen. Otherwise, image quality and 3D effect is great. Is this a known problem?
My glasses are this model :


Also bought a pair of these (http://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B0092M3PG8/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1), seem to give a slight different color (bit more blue-ish) but no sign of the red tint at all.

MLXXX, you da man! Thanks for the quick response. Following up to that, my cable provider (Bright House) states on its' website the following... "Bright House Networks is taking advantage of the newest 3D technology, which uses a side-by-side format to deliver 3D images."

But I've tested a couple 3D programs, and at the very beginning, they tell me to set my tv (W1070 in this case) to top/bottom. Does that mean Bright House is saying one thing, but delivering another?

This is my 3rd projector, but first time working with 3D, so I'm learning! Thanks to this thread, I've already got the glasses picked out! :-)

Does seem that way! If they did switch to side-by-side and kept a picture format of 1280x720p60 that'd make it only 640 Left + 640 Right horizontal pixels available for 3D. (They could be better off leaving it at top and bottom 3D unless they are willng to change the cable service to 1920x1080i60.)

Here you go, simply search ebay using 'glasses display stand'. In the US use the item number (370770148011) and enter into ebay around $5. Note no 4 layer found only 5.

Here is another alternative, angles back: item # 310400766584 around $7.80

There is no one answer to this. It depends on where you are located as shipping does significantly change the options. Your budget will also determine the options as well. What is 'a good price' for you??? Some think Sainsonics at around $20 a good price but others are willing to pay $80 for Benq ($150 here in Australia - we do not consider them a good price because of shipping and retail gouging).

At the end of the day many factors are personal to the user so the 'most recommended' is not necessarily the 'best' for you. Sainsonics are cheap and many find them good, some do not (due to the 'red flash' problem). Benq are expensive, can be a little uncomfortable but do the job for many. Etc etc etc.

Do some reading and all will be revealed.

But ... in the end it is your decision based on price, shipping, features, performance, comfort, rechargeable or non-rechargeable batteries, etc.

Yes, I'd totally agree with OZReddog as above. There are so many personal factors e.g. price, shipping, features... etc. etc. meaning no single pair of glasses are necessarily the best fit (no pun intended) for every individual. Best to read through the thread and hopefully you'll glean enough information from it to help you narrow it down to the pair/s that will likely be most suitable for you. smile.gif

Let me help you save some time here & point you towards 4 quality pairs of glasses that you will like

Buy these:
http://www.amazon.com/3DTV-Corp-DLP-LINK-Projectors-Mitsubishi/dp/B004G2VJM6/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1372763031&sr=1-1&keywords=3dtv+corp+glasses
That's 2 pairs for just over $60

And then buy 2 pairs of these lighter-weight glasses (your wife/company may prefer these less bulky glasses)
http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-3DTV-96-144HZ-Rechargeable-Lightest-DLP-Link-3D-Active-Shutter-Glasses-/161044680956?pt=US_Video_Glasses&hash=item257f02d0fc
They are $20 each including shipping

I read a glowing review of the 3dtv new light weight glasses and I got excited and pulled the trigger on two pair on ebay. I then read how someone saw the red flash and I wanted to cancel. I emailed 3dtv and told him I wanted to cancel because I had read that those glasses don't prevent red flash. Here is what he wrote back. "Such reports are pretty much meaningless as they depend on the tweaking of the projector. We sell lots of all 3 of our models(2 adults, one kids) for benq and get very few returns. Nobody has real useful data on this but no problem to cancel if you wish". I went ahead and put through my order. I figured if they do produce red flash, I'll make our guest wear them...tongue.gif I'll report back after I get my new glasses.
