Sony PlayStation 3 PS3 3D Glasses Review (Model CECH-ZEG1U)

1.Introduction

When I got my first 3D projector, the  Epson PowerLite 3010e 3D 1080p projector, I went ahead and purchased the Panasonic 3rd gen TY-EW3D3MU (also sold as twin pack under the designationTY-EW3D3MPK2), glasses that are compatible with the universal standard M-3DI and are among the very few listed on Epson’s website as compatible. I only got four pairs since the Panasonic glasses are quite expensive at around $100/pair. Last week though, I realized I need a couple of extra pairs to have around and I looked for a cheaper solution. While not officially listed as compatible with Epson 3010/5010/6010 series, the Sony PlayStation 3 3D Glasses were reported in several places as working well with my projector, so I went ahead and ordered two pairs from Amazon that currently has the lowest price (around $50 shipped). In this review, I’ll not only describe how they perform, but I’ll include side by side comparisons versus the other 3D glasses I am currently using, the 3rd gen Panasonic TY-EW3D3MU Read More…

Epson 3010/3010e compatible 3D glasses (M-3DI standard) – the big list

I decided to write this small article because it was very hard for me to find compatible glasses after I bought my new Epson 3010e 3D projector. Some of the glasses are hard to find in stock, so I’ll also try to keep an eye on where to find them and for the best prices.

A little bit of introduction might be necessary: Epson wisely designed their 2011 projector line to be compatible with the M-3Di standard for Active Shutter Glasses. The current companies actively producing or working toward compatible products are: Panasonic Corporation, XpanD 3D, Hitachi Consumer Electronics Co., Ltd., Changhong Electric Co., Ltd., FUNAI Electric Co., Ltd., Hisense Electric Co., Ltd., Mitsubishi Electric Corporation, Seiko Epson Corporation, SIM2 Multimedia S.p.A., ViewSonic Corporation.

Currently these are the glasses that have been reported to work with the 3010/3010e, 5010, etc Epson projectors, as well as with most of the new projectors and TV sets compatible with M-3Di standard (including all 2011+ Panasonic TVs) Read More…

Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 3010/3010e 3D Projector Review 2012

1. Introduction

I was thinking for a while to make the transition to 3D, but I held back due to less than satisfactory equipment and experience. Like many, I went around the show rooms and tested various 3D TV sets, only to be disappointed by the viewing experience. While 2D TV is absolutely fine on most TV sizes, to watch 3D you need in my opinion a certain perspective, otherwise it feels like you are watching an aquarium. I wanted to feel like I am being immersed in the 3D scene, and I soon realized there is no way I can achieve my goal with a regular size TV set, so I started looking to some reasonably priced 3D full HD capable projector. Reasonably priced would been the entire setup around $2000, or $2500 at most. After a couple of months of researching (and about the same time spent in convincing my wife that we “need” yet another electronic toy), I bought Epson’s new PowerLite Home Cinema 3010 (3010e version) from Amazon (no taxes in California and they have the lowest price by far), 4 pairs of Panasonic 3D 3rd generation glasses (yes, they are compatible)  and a 120 inches FAVI motorized screen. I put everything together and the impressions will be fully detailed in this Epson 3010 review. Read More…
