No problem. I consider myself a bit of a 3D Aficionado and it's pretty much the reason I bought this projector
I did have some concerns about the technology behind the 3D, the lack of 144hz glasses on the market, and the high price associated with them. But all fears of lackluster 3D are long gone and I've found a very good affordable set of glasses in the 3DTV Corp DLP link glasses that I am happy with and are more affordable
Last night I put the tv through the CNET Hugo 3D torture test. I looked at problem areas like Hugo's hand as it reaches for the toy mouse (5:01), the tuning pegs on the guitar (7:49), and the face of the dog as it watches the inspector slide by (9:24). In these areas the projector performed flawlessly
And as I mentioned the previous night I tested Journey to the Center of the Earth and the pop outs, incredible depth, and crispness of the 3D were second to none. Well I continued on my testing quest last night and viewed Sammy's Adventure (the most outrageously 3D movie ever made) and Ultimate Wave Tahiti (one of my favorite quick 3D blus to show off the technology to newbie guests), The 3D results were again nothing short of amazing and completely flawless and crosstalk free to my eyes. Furthermore, I checked the AVForums calibration accuracy I'm using with a quick viewing of Samsara, and when I did I found colors to be accurate, brilliant, and spot on
So after everything I discovered about this top notch 3D device, I don't really see how anyone could say that it's kind of lackluster on this projector. Perhaps the 3D "experience" as a whole might feel a bit lackluster when you discover you have to deal with the high cost of 144hz 3D glasses, find a pair that is actually comfortable, that work & don't lose synch, and that block red tint completely (this 3D technology that tampers with the image is sure to drive some videophiles nuts and cause them to dock a few points automatically). Well, these 3DTV Corp glasses do the job quite well, and clocking in at around $30 each I can be quite satisfied without taking a reaming from Benq and their $80 glasses
Here's the link to the 3DTV glasses I tested with:
I will continue to use these glasses almost exclusively. Clocking in at a more affordable 30 bucks, they are unfortunately still very bulky and not lightweight in the least, but they get the job done. And until there is a similar/cheaper competitor to the very expensive lightweight Benq D3 glasses, I'll be sticking with these. Everything I've read about the Sainsonics 144hz glasses has led me to believe they are too unreliable, so I'm in no rush to try those which leaves me with not many options
My wife complained that the 3DTV Corps glasses were too big for her head, but she was able to use them. And as someone who wears prescription glasses, I have put up with and know how to put up with various circumstances involving uncomfortable experiences with 3D glasses, especially during any visit to the local theatre. But I had an old pair of prescription glasses and was able to remove the lenses and use them after noticing that the size of the lenses were almost identical. They fit perfectly inside my 3D glasses with the help of a just a tiny smidge of scotch tape at the top and bottom of each lens to hold them in place. Now I only have to wear one pair of glasses when viewing 3D which is nice, and slightly bests the great experience I've had with the super lightweight Samsung 3050GB's I use for my 3D tv
