When it comes to stereoscopic 3D, we've got a bit of a soft spot for the Acer H5360. It was our first taste of a 3D product that actually had us tempted to take the plunge. We reckon the greater viewing distance a projector offers compared to a monitor makes it easier for your eyes to cope with the contortions demanded by the fake depth of view. Not only does that make for more comfortable viewing, it also means the 3D illusion is more convincing. So, just how much do you have to pay for the tantalising prospect of life-sized monsters and machines jumping out of your living room wall? Depending on how you look at it, the answer is nothing. That's because at 419, the Acer H5360 is no more expensive than Acer's 2D 720p DLP model. So you wouldn't be paying extra for the 120Hz capabilities. In standard 2D mode, it's easily as crisp and accurate as any similar projector we've seen. The rich, vibrant colour rendering betrays little evidence of compression or loss of detail, too. Likewise we're impressed by the black levels. They're as deep as you would expect from a projector with a claimed contrast ratio of 3,200 to one. As for brightness, there's more good news.
3D Vision is one ace up Nvidia’s GPU sleeve that AMD doesn’t have an answer for. And if you enjoy 3D Vision on the small screen, you’ll really dig it writ large with Acer’s H5360 DLP video projector—provided you can accept the shortcomings inherent to the projector, Nvidia’s GPUs, and 3D Vision in general. When it comes to putting an Nvidia GPU in your home-theater PC, the biggest drawback is that none of the green team’s cards provide the protected audio path needed to route encrypted HD audio to the card’s HDMI output. So if you want to hear the Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio soundtracks on Blu-ray movies—and you do—you’ll need to invest in a specialized soundcard, such as Asus’s Xonar HDAV or Auzentech’s X-Fi Home Theater HD. The projector itself has two weaknesses: Most significantly, its native resolution is 1280x720, versus 1920x1080. That matters most when you’re watching Blu-ray movies, because they look so much better splashed across a wall-size screen at 1080p. On the other hand, the limited resolution becomes something of a perverse benefit when it comes to gaming, for reasons we’ll explain in a moment.
