Yes, once again, another Sony supports 3D. While it’s true that most LCD and OLED TVs no longer support 3D, that’s understandable. To truly enjoy 3D, that’s all about 3D letting you more easily be immersed in the content – better able to “suspend disbelief.”
That’s the same reason we go to the movie theaters and watch on the big screen – to be immersed in the content. To appreciate 3D at its best, you should be looking at a very large image that fills a good chunk of your view. That’s just not reality for TVs in most people’s homes, but it is exactly typical of a good home theater projector setup or a commercial movie theater.
So, get some affordable 3D glasses, buy some 3D movies and have a blast.
Crosstalk is there, but minimal. Yes, passive glasses (like in the US movie theaters) are lighter and “easier” than active glasses, but the experience is pretty awesome. I only watched one 3D movie most of the way through, and part of another: Avatar (and a couple of scenes from my 3D copy of Ghostbusters 2016. In both cases the 3D was killer. Unfortunately, that always reminds me that the 4K UHD standards folks didn’t bother to also create a 4K standard for 3D. So, of course, the Sony when doing 3D is working with 1080p resolution movies. (Which still look crazy sharp for 1080p).
Bottom line: If you like 3D, you will love it on this Sony VW995ES. Now that I think about it, maybe I’ll put on another movie in 3D, because I’ll enjoy the experience. I’ll have to do that before I ship this projector back. Right after the CES show.
