JVC DLA-X3 3D D-ILA Projector

January 27, 2011

David Birch-Jones has posted a review of the JVC DLA-X3 3D D-ILA projector ($4500) at The PerfectVision. His conclusions:

JVC’s highly refined D-ILA imaging technology seems ideal for 3D, as this reasonably-priced entry level model delivers an enticing 3D image, along with excellent 2D high resolution imagery. The feature set isn’t as broad as the model’s two much more expensive siblings, but the projector still incorporates just about all most users will ever need.

The 3D image quality is comparable to that provided by the best 3D plasma HDTV flat panel sets out there (and better than what you’d experience in a commercial movie theater with typical passive polarized 3D glasses), and the automatic activation of the 3D glasses is a nice convenience. There’s plenty of light output in the dimmed Normal mode, and the multi-step aperture allows for further light output tweaking.
