I'm lookin to purchase a 3D ready projector, where I can put on my shutter glasses and watch the newest 3D movies comin out.........in the comfort of my basement home theatre.   My question is .........what MODEL/BRAND of projector will best work for me? I am looking for a ceiling mountable 3D projector to watch movies. I'm not a big gamer, but great if it works for that as well. My price range is up to $700 (if possible).   I am looking on Newegg/Amazon, etc and there are a zillion makes/models, etc and I don't know what the heck is good/bad or what is crap or not. The ones that says 3D ready....(can I pick anyone of these).........some say PC gaming. Does that mean that some 3D projectors will not work with the new 3D movies, like Clash of the Titans, etc? Very confused with the whole 3D stuff...........   Can someone recommend a brand/model that would work for what I want? I'd be very thankful, because I'm looking to make a purchase soon.   Thanks ahead of time!

There are two 3D ready projectors around that price: Optoma HD66 and Acer 5360. BUT, it's too early to know which will work with what. Read the reviews at Projectorcentral.com and Projectorreviews.com. You should wait to see what's announced at the Cedia show coming up.

Pat, Parker and Ron are all going to CEDIA this year, and should be posting coverage throughout the show.  I'll sent them a note to keep and eye out for 3D front projectors.

Will this mount work for the Optoma HD66 Projector? I have a drop-ceiling so need enough pole....




Wanna make sure, cause I don't know what I'm doing!
