I still have my Lumis Solo. I bought the Nero becuase I had to moved and didn't have the space for the big screen I used to have in my old place. The Lumis is too bright for my current setup, and after testing several projectors: JVC rs65, Sony 4k, I decided on the Nero. After testing side by side the Lumis and the Nero both machines calibrated, the only thing the Lumis excels over the Nero its brightness and image depth. The Lumis has a more 3D image, but colors are practicaly the same after calibration. The Nero is so sharp that makes other projectors look cheap.

Thanks for the feedback, interesting to hear that the colour reproduction on the Nero is practically the same. I have seen several other 3 chip models and been impressed but I have never had a chance to see a Lumis.

I just read the projectorreviews of this projector, and it reported only 600 and something lumens when calibrated to D65.   This doesn't seem very impressive for a unit in this price range.    Am I missing something?

I believe projectorsreview got one of the first units to review. There has been a few firmwares after that review with major upgrades in both 2D and 3D.I also believe that reviewer has a fairly large screen, over 120". I have seen the Nero on a 120in screen calibrated to 18fl, so that pretty good. For my current setup, 92in batcave, the Nero is perfect

Got myself a SIM2 3D-2. Is the only option to enjoy 3D the very expensive emitter and glasses from SIM2 itself?
The 3D sync port is a VESA DIN-3 port which means it should work with any 3-pin DIN emitter out there. The best, in my opinion, is the E-Star BC6000 system. It's fairly cheap too:

Starter kit (which includes the emitter and 1 pair of glasses):

Single Glasses:

are these glasses as good as the original from SIM2 you think?

It looks like they're the exact same glasses from the same OEM, just with a different logo printed on either pair of glasses:



There are a few other companies using the exact same emitter and glasses. Optoma and Monster are a couple of them. The only thing that differentiates between them is the brand name printed on the side of the glasses/emitter and price. Performance is the same from a few posts I've read that compared them. Which makes sense because they're the exact same things. BitCouldron is the OEM:

glasses are not the exact same. Look at the glasses where the nose is.
Anyway, why the hell would SIM2 ask € 799 for 1x glasses?

I think that's just the angle of the photo and the nose piece looks installed on the Sim2 glasses where on the E-Star photo the noise piece hasn't been installed yet. Either way, even if they are different, it's a 3-pin DIN connector so the E-Star system will still work with Nero 3D-2. For $63 it's worth a try and you can always return them to amazon if they don't work (even though I doubt you'll have problems).

Sim2 uses Xpand glasses. You can get these for cheap on Amazon with the emitter. Only thing is the emitter does not work at 144Hz, does work at 120Hz. Don't recall if this particular Sim2 model does that rate, but if you need it, you can get the correct emitter directly from Xpand. The BC versions also work fine. Matter of preference.


Edit: noted you are from Netherlands, not sure of the most cost-effective option there, but the options remain the same

Only the 3D-S does 144, the 3D-2 is 120

No, this is new Optoma ( "improved" ) version - but should still Work ( but havnt tried them myself )




But sanderdvd, look at these, ( they have the same connection ) , : http://www.amazon.com/EX105BT-Shutter-Bluetooth-Mitsubishi-Televisions/dp/B009ZW7SR2/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1420743710&sr=1-2&keywords=xpand+x105-rf


you can ordrer them here as well now, and is exstreamly cheap - even if we have to pay tax and import fee ( here they end at double Price - about 50 dollar - still very cheap for quality 3D Xpand glasses)
