It's a choice that either way I think you'll be fine. The DLPs are cheaper and if you changed PJs and the newer one didn't do DLP-Link you would leave your DLP-Link glasses with the this PJ for use, or to add as an incentive if it is to be sold.
The estar DLP-Link glasses are equivalent to the more expensive Optomas. They are quite good. They cost $39.99 each. http://www.amazon.com/EStar-America-ESG601-Link-Glasses/dp/B00CRN3D98/ref=pd_sim_e_5
The estar RF Glasses are also equivalent to the more expensive Optomas. They cost $54.00 each.
The estar starter kit with one set of glasses costs $64.00.
I like what I'm seeing with my ESG601 DLP-Link glasses. They never lose signal and the blacks and contrast are good. I think some DLP-Link glasses don't do as well, but I can only surmise this from what I read.
The cost for 2 DLPs is $80.00 The cost for 2 RFs (with starter) is $118.00.
The cost for 4 DLPs is $160.00. The cost for 4 RFs is $226.00.
Cheaper versions of each kind can be found and I think there are some good ones of each kind to be found. As more people get into this "sport" we'll get better recommendations.
It's a choice. There are good reasons for both choices. For me cost was the main consideration right now and I am glad I chose DLPs as they have given me excellent 3D. I see no anomalies when I watch. I also got mine a month ago when they cost $10.00 less each.
