JVC DLA-X3 3D 1080p Projector Review

The DLA-X3 (and its professional-market counterpart, the DLA-RS40) is the entry-level model in the 3D line. With an MSRP of $4,499.95, this D-ILA projector has a 1080p resolution and a rated 50,000:1 native contrast ratio, and it features the HQV Reon-VX processing chip, 120Hz Clear Motion Drive, two anamorphic lens modes, a 220-watt UHP lamp, and motorized zoom/focus controls. JVC has opted to go the active 3D route with its projectors: The DLA-X3 uses frame-sequential technology, in which the projector alternately flashes a full-resolution left-eye and right-eye image. Active 3D requires special glasses that contain shutters that open and close in sync with the signal to direct the appropriate image to each eye. In this case, you also need a 3D signal emitter that connects to the projector and communicates with the glasses. JVC includes neither the glasses nor the emitter in the DLA-X3’s package. The PK-EM1 signal emitter costs $79, while the PK-AG1 glasses cost $179 each.
