1 week update:
So far I'm happy with the 3000. I haven't tried any movies in 3D so far but the gaming has been nice. Tips I can give
1. Don't buy a screen, just scrape the texture off your wall, sand it a bit and apply Behr "Silver Screen"
2. Don't mess with Tridef software (ddd.com) it doesn't communicate with the projector and is a pain.
3. Make sure if you have Nvidia to buy 3DTV from Nvidia (40 bucks). It tells you the settings you should use
when you run a game so it looks nice. The games I've tried so far...
1. Marvel Heroes (looks good, not great but playable for sure)
2. Fear (Looks good at 720P but could cause eye strain at 1080P)
3. Bioshock (Wow! like really WOW! at 1080P this game is freaking cool in 3D!)
I cut a 4 ft tall by 16 in wide hole into my wall that connects to the closet. I built shelves so when you look at the wall all you see it a glass door where the projector beams out the image which looks nice and is very quiet. Originally I had the projector, satellite, gaming rig, switch and cable modem but the heat from my 3D video card made the temperature in the closet was 95 degrees and caused the fan to run high. After I removed the PC the ambient temperature is 82-83 degree's (much much better!).
Gaming seems to be fun. I haven't tried my PS3 but Playstation/Xbone are dead these days compared to SteamPowered and humblebundle.com. So far my game collection is at 210 and I barely spent 100 bucks if that
1. I can't seem to play Blueray on my blueray player on Windows. Does anyone know a codec I should use? is there a 3D codec maybe?
2. I still don't understand the 480hz/240hz the advertise. The only video modes available in Windows is 1080P 24hz and 720P 60hz. Anyone know?
3. Where can you get a good deal on the lamp? i see lots on Amazon but not sure which to buy. I would like to have a backup ready.
