Need a 3d player recommendation

I just installed a BenQ TH671ST 1080p Short Throw Projector and currently own a Oppo BDP-80. We'd really like to watch a couple of movies in 3d so I ordered DLP LINK eD Elite 144 Hz 3D Glasses. However, I don't think the BDP-80 supports 3D.

Can someone recommend a Blu-ray player to watch some 3D movies? I was hoping to not spend more than $300 and don't mind used.

The player would be hooked up to a soundbar (Sonos Beam) that is hooked up to the projector.

Thank you.

If you don't need 4K, you can get a cheap Sony 3DBD play like the BDP-S6700. I have the previous gen the 6500 and it work just fine. I also use the built in vudu app for vudu. 3D movies I own.

I second the S6700. Excellent for 3D and you get 3D window depth adjustment as well, and 2D->3D. Plus screen sizing. You can get these for less than $100 now. Don't spend anymore for something touted as being better. The S6700 was latest generation with 4K upscaling of 1080p as well.

I have the Sony UBP X700 UHD and 3D player but with the scarce release rate on 3D movies now and the foreseeable future, I wonder if it would be worth picking up one of these for the 3D conversion feature. I know its just a bit of extra depth but my old Samsung 3d BR done OK but limited the resolution to 720p. Does this keep full 1080p? How does it look to you and do you use it at all? Cheers if you can give me some feedback

2D to 3D is okay. It appears to use the bottom up method on static scenes (scenes with little camera movement--ie. objects near the bottom of the image are considered near you and recede into the background from there. It handles moving-camera scenes ok, since it can then calculate where objects are in relation to each other. It also creates a 3D window that pushes the video back into the screen. For the price, I would recommend getting it just for that, and yes it does 1080p.
