Default 3D Vision on projectors/TVs?

Hi there,

Curious if anyone knows if the new 3D projectors and TVs are going work with the Nvidia 3D Vision down the road? Or if by chance they already do? It sounds like right now it only works with 3D monitors but thought it was worth checking. Thinking of getting a TV or projector for movies, but hoping to be able to use it with my computer for games as well.

Thanks all.

Edit: Found an acer 3D vision ready projector so I guess that answers my question a little bit. Still wondering if other 3D tvs without the 3D Vision Ready stamp will work. We have a 3D tv at work and it looks a whole lot better than I thought it would.

Well, I have somewhat answered my own question so I will put the answer up heheh. The 3D Vision Ready projectors may not accept the signal from a 3D blu ray player but they can accept the signal of a 3D blu ray disk if it is through an Nvidia card. Really good news to me.

The one I am looking at is the Acer h5360 which can be had for as low as $634 CDN (I think I know where my next paycheck is going), at the time of writing. I would link but the acer website is having some issues for me. Shopbot is and you'll find some great deals on it that are cheaper than even ebay.
