The Sim2 Nero 3D-1 has been given a top score of ten out of ten in a recent projector review from Trusted Reviews.
According to the technology website, the device is one of the best 3D projectors on the market and, while it doesn't quite match up to the manufacturer's Lumis 3D-S, its significantly lower price tag makes it worthwhile.
The 3D-S clocks in at £30,000, making it very high-end indeed. Meanwhile, the 3D-1 is a slightly more respectable £12,995. The main reason for the difference in price is the fact that the cheaper model uses a single-chip DLP optical system, rather than the three-chip engine of its sibling.
This results in the lower-priced projector using a spinning colour wheel system to produce its colours, which can impact motion reproduction and noise levels, and also comes with the chance of the 'rainbow effect' during bright scenes.
But the picture quality is still mightily impressive and even the 3D pictures are delivered with “astonishing clarity”. It is of course still a very expensive piece of kit, but it is “so far ahead of mainstream 3D projectors right now” that it almost looks like a bargain, according to its reviewers, who clearly believe that this device offers one of the best examples of domestic full HD 3D on the market.
