Agreed. I'm definitely not trying to fool myself into thinking it *is* Full HD 3D. (I'm not sure at this point I even know what is? the new Panasonic VT25s?). It's not that I'm maintaining that it *is* the same, just that it's close enough to most folks wouldn't notice.cybereality wrote:Well I primarily use a non-full HD interleaved display (1680x525 in 3D) or sometimes the VR920, which is only 640x480. Hell, even my Vuzix Wrap 310 looks alright for iPod video and its just 428 x 240. I don't think you need ridiculous resolution just to have an enjoyable experience. But it is foolish to trick yourself into thinking there is not a difference. Whether you will notice that difference in your experience is another matter, and subject to debate. And, of course, price-to-performance is always a concern. So paying 300% the price and only getting a marginal increase in quality may not be a good proposition. But at the end of the day interlaced is, in fact, technically half the resolution but I agree that its not necessarily half the quality. I am not trying to convince you to not buy the Mitsu. I think it is a great product and was very close to buying one myself (and I'd still consider it if I run into any money anytime soon). I just wouldn't consider it "FullHD 3D". Thats all.
To you point, I don't believe paying 300% for a marginal increase in quality (which might be "noticeable" if the 2 systems were side-by-side, but IMHO is virtually undetectable when simply watching the DLP system itself) is worth it. So for me and my dollar, DLP 3D would gives the best bang for the buck.
On a side note, I was hoping to hear something from TI/Mits from CES about a 1920x1080 DMD (which would make the DLP sets Full HD 3D, etc), and found this...

What caught my eye was the "120Hz Sub-frame rate"....... which I would take to mean that it's using the same 960x1080 DMD with wobulation. I would think if they're gonna bust out a 1920x1080 DMD, a 92" beast would've been the perfect set to do it on!!
