A lot of people were eagerly expecting the new 3D Vision-ready projectors from Viewsonic to become available on the market and to buy them to get really big Stereo 3D displays to play with, including myself. And now that the ViewSonic PJD6211, PJD6221 and PJD6381 3D-ready DLP projectors are already available on the market it seems that you better wait a bit more, before going for them especially if you wish to use them with your 3D Vision glasses. It seems that these projectors do have some problems working with 3D Vision and some people are having problems making them to work, although some suggest that setting the projector as a CRT display helps. It seems ViewSonic needs to release a new firmware update (according to Nvidia, but Viewsonic claims they need new drivers from Nvidia) to make the things work as they should and avoid any problems and this should probably happen by the end of September. And in those few weeks we might also see an new version of the 3D Vision drivers with even more improvements, one of which will probably be the addition of support for the new MPO image format for Stereo 3D pictures and of course more gaming profiles. So I’m just going to wait a bit more to see how things develop, instead of getting one of these new “3D Vision-ready” (or not yet ready) projectors now and I suggest you do the same if you are interested in them… ;)

Availability of ViewSonic’s PJD6211, PJD6221 and PJD6381 3D Projectors

On June 15th ViewSonic has announced three new 3D-ready DLP projectors that are suitable solution to be combined with Nvidia’s GeForce 3D Vision shutter glasses instead of a 120 Hz LCD display or a compatible TV screen. The first two “normal” DLP projectors – PJD6211 and PJD6221 should’ve been available in July according to Viewsonic, but looking around for them in the last few days proved that they are still not on sale. And PJD6381 – also a 3D-ready, but an ultra short-throw DLP projector (unlike the other two cheaper models that are a normal-throw ones) should be available in August, again according to the official information from Viewsonic’s press release…

But according to some new information I just got from Viewsonic (thanks to Twitter) the new 3D-compatible PJD6211 DLP projector will be available in 1-2 weeks (by the middle of August), the PJD6221 and PJD6381 will be available in late August. So if you are looking to get any of these new 3D-ready DLP projectors for your 3D Vision setup you should start preparing for it, because I’m really eager to get a Viewsonic PJD6211 to it try out and compare the big screen and smaller resolution (1024×768) with high resolution (1680×1050), but small in diagonal Samsung 2233RZ display (22-inch)…

Viewsonic PJD6211 – 1024×768 – $849 (middle of August)
Viewsonic PJD6221 – 1024×768, network management – $999 (end of August)
Viewsonic PJD6381 – 1024×768, short throw, network management – $1,249 (end of August)
