Mitsubishi HC9000D Special Features
HC9000D 3D Abilities
The HC9000D, like its competitors, relies on active shutter glasses. Mitsubishi figures they are selling a first class 2D projector and 3D's not for everyone, so they skipped throwing in the usual 2 pair of active shutter glasses that some other manufacturers have included. (On the other hand, they did include an external wireless IR emitter, with the projector?) That at least gives you some choice from several different manufacturers of glasses that you should be able to use, when you decide you can no longer live without 3D.
The HC9000D handled 3D as well as any of the others to pass through here. Crosstalk seems to be minimal. I'm still playing with the different settings that seem to trade off crosstalk for brightness, in a lot of subtle steps. The default setting of 4.5 definitely works well. You can go to a lower number, likely reduce crosstalk or some other type of noise, but give up precious brightness.
Once again, we have a 1080p projector that can't play ESPN 3D content. Like all of these projectors so far except the Sharp projector, they don't support this one type of 720p 3D. That's a nuisance.
I logged at least a dozen hours viewing 3D content. It's the best I've seen so far, and that, in part, because it's the brightest 1080p 3D capable projector to come through here yet, except for the well endowed LG CF3D. That beast though, isn't for home.
