To kickstart this thread, here's the review of Epson's new top-end 3LCD projector, the EH-TW9100 (also available with wireless HD video as EH-TW9100W):

http://www.hdtvtest.co.uk/news/epson-eh-tw9100-201211242375.htm

The European model is missing the THX picture modes which are present on some international variants. For 2D, that's OK because their "Natural" mode basically fulfils the same function (accurate video). For 3D, there is no accurate picture mode on the European model, so we're sharing the 3D picture settings from our review sample to act as a next-best alternative for European owners.

Epson EH-TW9100 / 9100W 3D settings:

Note: These settings are only the "calibrated settings" for our individual EH-TW9100 review sample. They will not result in calibrated performance on your own projector because each unit and lamp produce different colours which need to be offset. However, because the European EH-TW9100 lacks an accurate 3D picture mode, they will produce an improvement on the out-of-the-box settings.

Interesting review, the screendoor effect would be a killer for me as i sit about 1.1 screen width away, so having seen 3 of this years projectors, the Sony HW50, the Panasonic and now this model, if you had a choice which one would you watch all your films on and which one is best for 3D content.

Have you seen this thread on the HW50 over at AVS forums.

For that you will have to wait a little longer for the Sony HW50 :)

I see the projector reviews are getting regular and this is very good news indeed...  :clap:

Is there any DLP on the schedule? I hope you get to review BenQ W1070, el cheapo but quite promising (3D, cms, DC3).

I'd like to see a review of the Sim Lumis 3D-S, not cheap at over 30,000 but i'd love to see a review and know how good it is compared to cheaper projectors and just in case i win the lottery and can afford to buy it.
