You slightly mis-understood what I was saying. My biological vision system (eyes/brain) can't see the RBE. When I was working in the broadcast TV industry, I couldn't see flash frames when others could. I could only see the flash frames by recording the video and then playing the video back frame by frame.

Sorry that you are so sensitive to the rainbow effect

I'm planning on upgrading to the BenQ HT2550 later this year. 4K and 3D and not crazy expensive

Got my eye on this one myself. I'll be looking at the reviews when this hits. (Of course, most reviewers won't bother checking the 3D performance. )

Seems like the 2550 may have a design flaw. When going into 3D mode, it automatically DIMS the picture and it can't be adjusted manually. Seems like they got it backwards, if that's the case. Have to wait on reviews.

Unhappy

for you benq owner's wanting to upgrade, beware. the 2550's throw distance has moved from 1.15 to 1.47. to use your existing screen size you might need to move your ceiling mount back considerably. I don't have that much room and there's no way I'm going to a smaller sceen. I'll have to wait till, if and when they make a short throw or gaming model of this projecter.

The Optoma UHD50 is coming out soon and may work better for your room. Its gonna be priced similar to the 2550.

Default what is the best newest 3D Projector on market for reasonable price ?

I find BenQ Projectors to be top shelf and they can be had for reasonable price. Do BenQ have a new good 3D projector on the market maybe even a Projector with both 3D/4K too?

If you have a Dark Theater Room, My vote would be a like new preowned jvc rs500 or rs520 (or identical DLA-X750 / DLA-X770) for about $2500-4000 on eBay or Amazon. These originally sold for over $5000 not too long ago and are a great deal. Obviously a brand new rs540 (DLA-X790) would be even better but also more money.

These projectors do great 3d and great 2d, plus good 4k HDR (note the rs520 or rs540 make 4k HDR easier to configure).

Exclamation Need 3D projector education

I'd like to spend $1000.
1. I want to use my Sony 3D bluray player, not have to go thru a PC, not limited to checkerboard.
2. For under $1000, are shutter glasses the only option? How inexpensive are decent glasses?
3. Do shutter glasses require an emitter? What's it's range?

4. Is a special screen required?

Thanks everyone, I currently have a 55" 3D LG, 7.1 receiver, over 100 3D movies, for 1 12 x 15 room. I want to be ready for the day my tv dies and 3D TVs will no longer be available.

$300 more will get you a great 3d rig. If you're not going to mount a fixed frame screen then dont waist your time. On a budget dlp projector's are the biggest bang for the buck. you can run a 120 in. screen in that room! a benq HT2150ST in the 12 ft. direction or a benq Ht2050 or 3050 in the 15 ft. direction. Ilete screens and silver ticket srceens make great fixed frame screens for $250 to $300 for a 120 in. screen. For 3d size is everything! these projector's are dlp link. the glasses are active but they don't require an external emitter. I use benq glasses but they're expensive and hard to get. there are plenty of compatible glasses a lot cheaper. they are 144hz dlp link. you can get them in the $20 the $30 range. speaking of, all glasses have different ranges but in a room that size it don't matter. you'll also want a ceiling mount. it's the only way to go. $1300 will get everything including a 30 ft. plus HDMI with room to spare. maybe as low as $1100. Thing I don't get is why you'd wait till that tiny tv bricks. you want to rig this project pronto! trust me, you'll be blown away! even in flat mode

Thanks Battail. Why do you say "If you're not going to mount a fixed frame screen then dont waist your time." I was planning on having the screen come down in front off our sliding glass doors. Wife won't let me permanently block them since they're our view of the lake.

if you want a razor sharp picture that appears like you're watching a huge flat panel once you focus the picture there's usually a corner of the screen that needs to be shined to get the entire screen razor sharp. walls are never truly square. with a pull down you'll never get that kind of focus. then the fixed frame is black felt that absorbs the edge of the picture and makes it again, look like a giant panel. this is very important for great 3d but if the wife has a problem with placement then by all means do what ever you got to do to get that projector in the house. the pull down will plant the seed.

Any updates to this thread? Has anyone tried the view Viewsonic LED projectors that just came out and supposed support 3D with 3500 lumens and a dynamic contrast of 3,000,000:1. That could be the magic ticket for 3D if it pans out in reality... Unfortunately, the mounting options aren't as flexible as the Epson 3D projectors.

What is the model number? Might be info on the avsforum on it.

Honestly though if a real enthusiast, you'd want true 4k (not some sort of pseudo pixel shifting) and 3D, and that basically leaves Sony and JVC.

No.

That depends on multiple factors. The bigger the screen (wider than 10 feet) the better to have a front projector with a native 4K UHD resolution.

Next is the question of the projector lens quality (glass?) to display single pixels.

With Sony and JVC a warm-up phase is required for perfect alignment of the three RGB panels (perfect internal adjustment necessary), with single DMD chip DLP projectors this is not necessary and according to multiple user reviews - although not native 4K Resolution but a result of E-shifting individual micromirrors - the actual differences in image detail are almost negligible from the viewing position.

BenQ just released improved DLP projectors like the HT3550 (W2700) and HT5550 (W5700) that support 3D with DLP Link glasses and are worth a look.

Ryanmh1 is probably talking about the Viewsonic LS700-4k (or the HD equivalent) which is supposed to release 6/1 in limited quantities and later in June with larger batches. I am looking forward to this as well, but as of yet no reviews or any more word from VS on them. They also claim 16ms lag for those interested in gaming!

The BenQs appear to be winners.

Anyone have any experience with the Optoma UHD51? Reviews seem good, though no one really mentions much about the 3D?

I've heard (but cant verify) that the BenQs are brighter
