Hi there, I refused to get the samples because they wanted to charge me $45 for shipping to canada...crazy!
But I found a great deal on Amazon for the Cinegrey 3d material and I went for it...
It's definitely performing better than my BlackWidow painted screen, but not even close to the Da-Lite Parallax 0.8 sample they sent me.
That thing is crazy, and crazy expensive too (4k for a 77"!)
My question for you is, since you tried both 3D and 5D, do you think the 5D combats ambient light better than the 3D?
If you could even take a comparison picture, I would be eternally grateful...
Here are some pictures. The blackwidow in the back, the Cinegrey 3D is (badly) stretched with some tape, and the small square material is the Parallax.
There is a LED chandelier on, the room is pretty bright.
The Cinegrey 3d definitely is better than BW, mostly because is retains blacks a bit better, but doesn't kill the whites at all.
The Parallax is crazy, even in day light it looks like a plasma, BUT the viewing angles are terrible. If I move to the side of the sofa, the gain is already a half!
