    Sim2 Nero Professional Review

    First one out after my mini one .

    http://www.trustedreviews.com/sim2-n...ojector_review


    Although itís understandably not as perfect as Sim2's massively more expensive Lumis 3D-S (our projector of the year), considered on its own terms the Nero 3D-1 is still an adorable bit of kit that once again shows that for now, at least, nobody does projected 3D as well as Sim2.

    [...]

    Verdict
    Inevitably given the £17,000 price difference (!), the Nero 3D-1 isnít quite as downright astonishing as Sim2ís award-winning Lumis 3D-S. Its 3D images arenít as bright, and thereís more judder and sporadic, faint traces of the rainbow effect.

    However, the precision, clarity, contrast, sharpness, colour accuracy and stunning purity of the Nero 3D-1ís images remain so far ahead of mainstream 3D projectors right now that its £13K price almost looks like a bargain. Our time with the Nero 3D-1 merely underlines our feeling when testing the Lumis 3D-S that you just havenít seen domestic full HD 3D until youíve seen it on a Sim2 projector.

    Note that this projector comes in different models with varying amount of brightness. The one they reviewed is the lowest brightness one.

    Well, I very nearly went for the cheaper sim2 crystal35, but then decided on a great offer for a Mitsubishi hc5. The offer for a demomodel was so low that I hope, all is fine! Is that at all comparable?
    - I admit, i bought the hc5 purely on recommendations in the net; something I don't do in Audio.

    So are the Sim2 pj that much better than anything else, or do they cook with water?

    The difference between high-end and lower end projectors has closed substantially in the last few years. So no, there is not a huge difference. But from my testing, there are smaller differentials like quality of the lens. The cheaper lenses will bleed more and I often see this in mass market projectors.
