Summary: Amazon 5 stars Epson 2 stars Visual Apex 1 star Here is the tale. ========= UPDATE II: I talked to Epson support and they said it was a "hardware failure" and the unit was defective and needed to be returned for a replacement. This seemed like possibly good news as that they said it would not cost anything, but the bad news is that in the fine print sent via eMail it states it would be replaced my an equivalent or refurbished product not a new one.
Excerpt: Mits HC7800D vs. Epson 3020 I was very fortunate to have tried both the Epson 3020 and the Mitsubishi HC7800D. Returned my first Mits since it had a pixel defect and decided to try the Epson because of its rave reviews. The Epson's picture was noticeably grainy compared to the Mitsubishi. I even used the recommended calibration settings for the Epson, and it was nothing compared to the Mits' out-of-the-box settings.
Pros: Bright picture, Good Warranty Support, Rf 3d Glasses Included
Cons: Annoying Whirring Noise, Grainy Picture, Unrealistic 3d
Beautiful Picture But Constant Rattling is Distracting

Summary: First off, all the good things you've read about the picture quality are true. The picture is bright and beautifully accurate. The real rub with this projector comes from the rattling noise it generates as it adjusts for white balance. I read about it before I bought the projector, but I had no idea how obnoxious it truly would be. It's not always rattling, but any sort of motion or scene change can cause it.
