Hello mate,

Have you tried a passive system and feel that it is better?

Can I ask you to compare? I believe very many of us would like a comparison.

I would have thought that since with the passive system, you only get ~25% of the light and you still get ghosting, z800 would be much better.

I had z800 and felt it was better than my active stereo ptojector setup which didn't even have ghosting.

Please elaborate? :)

Thank You :P

Sure thing.

I spent a huge amount of money for this passive projection system. I purchased two 1080p DLP projectors to run each visual channel, and The projectors each run at 1200 lumins, light loss is not an issue anymore :). I then went to 3M and had them custom make circular polarized filters encased in 1" of glass for each projector ($3500 and alot of lying, something about this being a university project :P) and then had the plain matched film set into a pair of old reading glasses. I also went to a local film/stage supply store and contacted them to frame and paint a silver screen of IMAX quality on my wall in the basement. All together I have spent 11k on this system. You can barely see some ghosting when you have a very bright object against a dark background, but it's so minimal you hardly see it.

Oh yes, the image quality is great. I have a gforce 7900 glx 512 powering it. Aside from the standard problems with certain games, the ones that do work are quite breathtaking. It's a 168" screen painted on the wall, so the immersion is amazing. With proper settings in world of warcraft, it really looks like the ground has changed :) people who are close to the screen feel like they are actually stepping into the game. (at least thats what they say!). I will be paying this off for a few years... but it's apart of a home renavation. I'll get some pictures. it's a full theatre too, I have a bluray player hooked up to the primary projector for standard moves, as well as a full bose 8.2 surround sound system. That room cost me a total of 67k to build... thank god for refinancing and rising housing costs!

Wow, sounds great. Can I come over and stay a few months. When you say Z800's do you mean 2 of them? I'm looking for one but $480 is a little steep.

Everything in life is negotiable! Give me a PM with an offer and I'll take it into consideration. Would you like pictures of the unit?

This is good to hear, there are mixed reviews on these and I was wondering if the 800x600 max resolution was a problem.

Never can see to many pics of the z800. Did you find the 800x600 limitation to be a problem? How much better is it then a CRT with shutterglasses at 1152x864? Sorry so many questions.
