I still can't work out what's going on because all the reviews I've read on the European/Pacific version of the 6040, the 9300 seem to give the 3D pretty high marks. I'm in Australia and had a demo and used 3D films that have given me problems on my 5020 and the results were impressive with minimal, if any crosstalk. This seems to be a US problem for some reason that I can't fathom
Check out this review on Youtube from Europe, the 3D report is around the 33 minute mark
...and from a UK review I posted earlier....
For the 3D evaluation, we only looked at the the Epson EH-TW9300 since we personally own the Epson EH-LS10000 and know its 3D performance by heart. Both Sammy and Life of Pi 3D Blu-ray were used to get an idea of the 3D that the Epson EH-TW9300 can provide.
Well, let’s keep it short: this is simply the best 3D we have ever seen! Why? Because it was bright on our 2m50 gain 1 screen, very bright even. Also because it did not suffer from any flickering leaving you with a headache after 5min of the 3D movie. In addition there was virtually no ghosting! The depth of the picture and the pop-outs were amazing.
To achieve these results, we used the Epson EH-TW9300 on bright lamp mode, combined with the “Cinema” color mode. Also, we reduced the glasses 3D brightness to the lowest level to eliminate any residual ghosting.
I pulled the pin based on what I saw and am picking up my unit today. Will report back when I get it set up
