    What projector do you use with your 160" screen for 3d? That must be amazing. I have a 100" screen with an epson 5020 . Watched a Christmas Carol in 3d with the kids last year and it was amazing. The snow scene was lots of fun! So was Polar Express .

    Bob-

    Something for you to test out- Load the latest You Tube app on your phone, works with iphone or Android. The go to a SBS YT 3D upload, like my latest Skagway video in 3D. Start playing it and then tap on the screen and look for the 360VR goggles symbol in the lower right corner. Tap on it and the screen will switch to 3D 360VR mode. Put in your cheap goggles and now you will have 3D SBS. Since the video is not 360 equirectangular format, you will only get the screen when you are looking in the same direction as you were when you launched the program. If not centered you can recenter but that is hard when the phone is in your goggles.

    I got the new Sony Xperia XZ Premium not and the 360VR is just about gone of the screen door artifact. Nice to have the 4K HDR screen on that phone. Not even the new iphone x has 4K native screen. I'm just using it on wifi and it is not on any carrier. Don't need to.

    Kezzbot,

    I really haven't seen the Benq, and I know it is top rated as well. The reason I went for the HD29Darbee is that it had a lot of lumens, which I need for 3D on my big screen. Also, the Darbee on board does a great job of improving detail in the image. I had an external Darbee on my last projector and really liked it. The H29Darbee does not get much press, mostly because of the release of the 4K projectors are taking all the news. You can buy a Darbee and attach it to a Benq as well, and end up with the best of both worlds if you are Benq fan.

    Hey Bob,

    I don't want to take up too much of you time but am just curious why you chose the HD29darbee? Like you my priorities are 3d. Having owed the Benq 1075 DLP projector ( regretfully now sold) i am looking for another 3d projector and am currently tossing up between the Benq 2050 and the HD29darbee just wondering why you rated the Optoma over the Benq.

    Most people are say the best atm is the benq but i don't think they have compared it against the HD29 as its still so new.

    Just looking for your opinion.

    Kerry.

    Ambarella stock got a severe spanking by a short trader last week. I took my gains at 121. If you had any thoughts of jumping back in it has just gone below $100. The company hasn't changed but this is the power of the short traders and their negative comments to get the stock to tank so they can profit. I thinking of buying back in soon again.

    This move is also taking GoPro down too and GoPro doesn't have a problem either. I bought 50 shares at 53 and I'm almost back to even. If it gets below 50 I'll buy another 50 shares and wait.

    Both are excellent companies but are being attacked by the big day traders.
