Summary: Had my sights on the Epson 5020 for a long time, then tripped over this refurbished 3020 at Visual apex. My family and friends are blown away (as am I). It's possible I would be singing a different tune if I had the chance to side by side the 5020 and 3020, or if this wasn't my first projector.
Summary: This projector is great for home Cinema. The lamp life has been phenomenal. I am currently at 5700 Hours on my first lamp. This is well past the rated maximum and it still isn't dim. The only cons I see with this projector are the fact that the lamps are currently so pricey and that the black levels are not as crisp as they could be.
Summary: The projector has met or exceeded my expectations. From what I can tell, I see no difference between this refurb. and a brand new projector. The 3D is awesome on this projector, even tried the 2D to 3D conversion, and it's really not too bad. I have a 92" Gray Wolf II screen, and with where my projector mount already was, I have the zoom all the way in...guess I'll have to get a bigger screen! Oh Well!
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Energy Efficient, Good Remote
Summary: The projector itself is excellent. Good, clean, clear picture. I am not thrilled with the wireless system however. There is a noticeable lag when changing between inputs and HD/NonHD. Once they perfect the wireless, this would be an easy 5 star. Perhaps they will update the transmitter at some point.
