back to article Sony VPL-HW30ES 3D projector

I’ve actually written several introductions to this review. One opened extolling the benefits of 3D projection over 3D TVs. I thoughtfully proposed that the key problem with 3D flatscreens is that they’re just too small - rather than confound and entrance you with 3D, they merely present you with a window and invite you to peer …

    too bad...

    for gaming?

    The lamps are a lil costly for me to consider gaming with them. Hopefully the casio laser projectors will continue improving to the point where i can use some of those - the latest are pretty good!

    Projector Gaming

    I once got to play Halo on original XBox on a projector set up... it was awesome! [TV's at the time were MUCH smaller than today's, so this was indeed WOW!]

    Doing it all in 3D would be cool.... but not for £3k!!! When can we expect a £300 version?

    So, how long do the bulbs last in these things?

      At £3,000 the question is do you upgrade to a £2,000-£2,500 tv or pay the extra for the projector?

    And for those without 20:20 vision?

    Those active (good) glasses look pointless for anyone who can't wear contacts...

    I'm waiting for a reasonably priced polarising 3D projector... I don't need to waste money on expensive glasses for my guests.
