That is the big question. While it is slated for "November 2011", people are estimating that those will be just a very small, select people like the major reviewers, etc. Mainstream buyers are looking at some time in December or even possibly January... So I've got time to decide. Not ready for anything yet anyway, and the initial thoughts and "pre-release reviews" are saying that the RS45 will still be amazing for 2D, and that is what I'm looking for.

I think I'm going to give the Sony 95 a whirl. I'm on the AVS pre order for both of the JVC's (45/55), but think I'm sold on the Sony and will back out of the pre-order.

Dean, I'm not a fan of 3D. Drives me crazy. But I do see that the MonsterVision glasses has a following at AVS. You might want to try a pair. From what I gather, the glasses are pretty important. I have also read many positive comments about a BR 3D concert. Peter Gabriel and the new Blood Orchestra.

Aw.... you only live once Nick and it's only money. $2500 for the 45 or $5500 for the 55 or Sony. Plus, how long do you keep projectors anyway?? I'd think as long as you keep yours, that 3yr warranty would be ideal.

I guess the Optima glasses are identical to the MonsterVision and quite a bit less. http://www.amazon.com/Optoma-Technology-...g=5336055023-20

LOL. I don't think that I could squeeze another $2000 for a projector since we are draining the funds pretty quickly real soon with paying for drywall, carpet/tile, needing to buy a lot of gear besides the projector such as the new receiver, new blu-ray player, theater seats, screen (even if it will be a DIY Seymour AT), acoustics treatments,etc... I already put the second sub on the back burner for a while. Adding that stuff up will run me about $15,000 as is without even batting an eye.... besides, if I can get a projector to last 5 years before becoming less than desirable, then I can take that $2000 savings and apply it towards the next projector so to speak...

Yeah, I think the next projector would be the one to go all-out on, assuming they start using laser illumination more.

Thanks Michael, I’ll look into them. I really hadn’t researched 3D since I wasn’t the reason I upgraded projectors so I never thought about the glasses making a difference.

True MD but some ppl may prefer to live without debt.

Save that extra couple of grand and drop a few hundred bucks on wine and beer for movie nights instead.

Yea, I used to be up to my ears in debt years ago. Outside of my house payment (which one could argue is WAY up and OVER my ears in debt), we have no other debt. It is nice.

Other than my house payment, I am also now debt free.
