Hey everyone! This has been my limiting factor to get into projectors. I have been looking for UST projectors due to renting currently but that is beyond the point. My main issue is
Are 3D projectors worth it? Anyone with 3D projectors use it often or only watch 2D? I heard there are few movies that are worth watching in 3D only.

I really want a LG HU85LA but haven't purchased it due to it not having 3D but I know Home theater 3D is not Cinema 3D. Any advice or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

SIDE NOTE: I would get a Optoma Cinemax Pro since it has 3D but I heard it has halo boarder glows and a bit of rainbow effect. But if 3D is worth it I'll buy the Optoma anyway.

I’m in the same boat as you 300 to 400+ Titles W/optima 25E rf glasses. why not have both? A dedicated 3D and separate 4K projector.

personally hdr is the “killer feature“ for me so unless a breakthrough happens on native 4K Dolby Vision capable projector I’ll likely stick to oled /direct view.

having said all that I don’t even own oled yet. Have a tcl 605 and thus far it’s just been meh. Most of my content is still 2k

You might look at the JVC Projectors. I have a 590 (not the latest full 4K model they have out now), and do use it for the 3d Blu_raus I own

If you do choose to do that, there are 3d glasses out of a German firm, that are cheaper than the JCV glasses.

You do need a $100 JVC emitter for the glasses to work

Definitely don't hold your breath waiting for that. Might never happen (at least actually coming very close to meeting specs in actual practice anyway)... because of that pesky thing called physics, hehheh... ;)

gotchya. i’m using the optoma bc300 rf emitter with only optoma zf2300 series.

the issue with these types of glasses is they have become rarer and rarer. i wished all projectors were like the epsons with rf built in and more flexibility with the types of glasses used

The question is in regard to the 3D glasses you mentioned.
