Are you talking about single chip DLP with spinny wheels for the colours because that's the only 144Hz 3D I am aware of. The effect of colour wheels I am extremely sensitive to 2D or 3D. In contrast the 96Hz is simply based on a 4x multiplier for 24Hz in order to eliminate visible flicker and as LCoS is triple chip, I am wondering if this is totally an orange apple comparison. I have not read of anyone who can detect flicker at either frequency. I have never had eye strain or headaches from 3D on JVC projectors with the exception of some very bad 2D conversions in the early days where convergence was poorly handled at the source mastering.I'm seriously considering buying the NX5 and a big reason for going back to using a projector (it's been several years) is for 3D content. I like the benefit of better contrast and colors of the JVC versus the DLP options, and it seems based on reading this thread that these newer D-ILA based projectors are far better at eliminating crosstalk and ghosting over the older generation LCD projectors.
But I'm concerned with the 96Hz 3D glasses refresh rate. It's a shame they couldn't use a triple-flash 144Hz rate, where each 24Hz frame of a movie is shown 3 times for each eye before transitioning to the next frame. Can anyone comment on this? Does the 96Hz rate produce noticeable flicker? Does it cause eye fatigue and how does it compare to the 144Hz systems common in DLP for those that have experience with both? Thank you!
EDIT: Seems to be pretty subjective, so I'm wondering how I'd be able to test out this projector in 3D before committing to a $5k purchase.
