Best 3D Projectors for Movies or Games

The technology available to project images has experienced a lot of changes recently. Particularly in videos, image projection has been getting clearer and clearer as the years pass by. One such technology that has been introduced to the consumer market would be the 3D projector.

All 3D projectors support 2D display. In terms of price, the price of a 3D and 2D projector may not be that far apart, unless the 3D projector includes an emitter and glasses. Performance of both projectors are almost exactly the same, but of course, a 3D projector can give the viewer a 3D display and enhance the realism of the video or game.

Here are some of the projectors that I found to be top quality:

ViewSonic PJD5133 SVGA DLP Projector

The ViewSonic PJD5133 SVGA DLP Projector is a fully featured projector that is currently being sold in the market today.

This is a high-performance SVGA 800 x 600 DLP projector. It has 2,700 lumens with a 3000:1 contrast ratio that display clear and bright images. Paired with the BrilliantColor technology, this projector comes out with an exceptional display quality in whether it be used in school, in the office, or at home.

The PJD5133 has a sleek design and won’t be an eyesore. One great feature is the Eco mode which increases the product life and makes maintenance of this product easy. This features HDMI and multiple PC and video input options.

It is 3D ready and has up to 120Hz refresh rate powered by DLP Link Technology. This projector also has a 1 watt integrated speaker. For image correction, it has vertical keystone correction and 1.1x manual optical zoom.

ViewSonic PJD5133 projector has 4.5 stars on Amazon because of its ability to project vivid images.

Epson V11H501020 PowerLite Home Cinema 3020

The Epson V11H501020 PowerLite Home Cinema 3020 is another heavyweight in the 3D projector market. This is a great product for a home theater.

It’s less bright delivering 2,300 lumens with a 40,000:1 contrast ratio. This results in unparalleled clarity and contrast of the projection. Display in darker rooms can be quite crisp and clear, perfect for watching movies. This projector can display in 2D, 3D, and HDMI.

There are two 10 watt stereo speakers built into this projector. The 3LCD is Epson’s advanced projection technology that uses three chips that can increase color brightness up to 3 times but remains energy efficient and can use up to 25% less energy. Paired with the energy-efficient E-TORL lamp that is exclusive from Epson, it can deliver more lumens per watt and can last for quite a while.

Converting images from 2D to 3D just requires the touch of a button, no need for special programs or CDs. You can also make use of the projector’s split-screen feature. Upon purchase, you’ll receive 2 pairs of RF 3D glasses – you can start enjoying 3D entertainment as soon as you set your projector up.

Optima HD33 Projector

The Optoma HD33 projector brings HD projection to a whole new level. It is another home theater projector that has all the features you’ll need from one. Though not as bright as the previous, this delivers 1,800 lumens with a contrast ratio of 4,000:1. This still gives you a clear and bright image.

The HD33 can display Full 3D, 1080p for Blu-ray, gaming consoles, cable, and satellite boxes with the use of the Texas Instruments 1080p DLP chipset installed. It displays both in 2D and 3D, like the rest of the products in the same market, but the HD33 boasts an image that can be blown up to 300 inches.

To keep up with today’s standards, this projector is an eco-friendly product and uses less than one watt power consumption in standby mode. Also, the projection lamp is rated to last up to 4,000 hours and features the rapid shutdown feature which lessens the time it takes to have the projector boot up and shut down.

Projectors have been used in offices, school, and homes for quite some time now. Pair it with some good bookshelf speakers and you have a mobile theater. The introduction of 3D projection opens up new possibilities for all these users. Of course, you’d have to consider which one would best fit what you plan to use it for. So keep in mind that every projector has their own unique characteristics that make them stand out.
