The XPAND Emitter + XPand glasses were pretty inexpensive, imo, and have already paid for itself. Please try it!
Likely soon to be new owner here, as I've been looking for a good 4K/3D projector. 3D is a huge deal to me with any projector, and certainly not an afterthought. I've got quite the 3D library built up, and many I still haven't had time to watch yet (and the new Thor movie in 3D coming from the UK soon). My last two projectors have been Benq DLP and I've sworn by them up until now because of the crosstalk free 3D. I still own a Benq W1500 and it has great 3D, so this one would have a lot to live up to there.
But with this projector having such excellent contrast AND 3D crosstalk reduction settings - it may be time to try it out. I just hope that dialed in with the proper 3D setup - the least amount of crosstalk won't still be too much for me.
As for the 3D glasses/emitter, I've read back several pages and I feel like this PJ needs a guide just for that. I've heard of the XPAND glasses but didn't see the X105-RF-X3 listed on their own site, but if I'm reading things right I guess I need to contact one of their guys directly to order the horizontally polarized glasses (and they will still be around $100 for each?)
I'm like to save, but will pay what I need to get started with at least a transmitter/one set of glasses because as I said 3D is going to be used frequently in my case. But if there is not much difference in the JVC vs the cheaper brands I'll just go with JVC branded stuff. I looked the transmitter up in the manual and have found the PK-EM2 which seems to be about $80 on Ebay with many from Japan. Hopefully they will be authentic, I've had mixed results and ended up getting knock off electronics from Japan in the past.
If what I understand is right, the choice of glasses after that is up to me. I don't need the Xpand transmitter for their own glasses to work right? If I get the JVC emitter I can choose JVC glasses or some other cheaper RF (horizontally polarized) glasses and they will work with that JVC transmitter? I saw one transmitter with a wire attached on ebay, and I'd much prefer the neat look of the wireless JVC transmitter. I'm guessing the wire was there bc one is IR and one is RF - so if I go with the PK-EM2 I need to make sure I get RF glasses not IR.
Anyways, I'd appreciate any advice/product links one might give a noob here
Btw does this projector do 2D to 3D conversion?
