Summary: I have this unit ceiling mounted in the back of my Home Theatre room. I've been through two units now and both have had a blooming issue in the lower left hand corner of the screen, basically a light spot on the bottom of the screen that looks like a smudge on black scenes, 1st one right out of the box and the 2nd one after about a 100 hours usage.
Summary: This is my third pj, and second digital one. My first projector was a CRT, a Barco 801s. It was 150 lbs of amazing color and super fantastic black levels. But when one of the tubes died I bought an Optoma HD71. That was good for a while but I missed those reference level colors, good blacks and full control over the image. This Epson has made me love projectors again and not miss my old CRT anymore.
Epson 5010 PowerLite Home Cinema 3D Front Projector
24 June 2013
Summary: like: -All -1080p 100% quality (newly purchased) -3D acceptable -High contrast Dislike: -Currently the 5010 is only projecting at 480p (I do not know why if you only have 107 hours of 4000 hours to change the lamp) -Not only have to buy the projector, you have to buy more: eg: -Blu-ray 3D 3D-HDMI (high speed) -Movies (3D) obviously -Sound Equipment -White Screen -Coax converter (if you want to watch tv)
Summary: Yes, it's top of the line but for that price you should expect no less. Bright and clear images, especially nice HD projection. I have not tried the 3D mode yet. My only "complaint" is that it dumps a lot of heat into the room and I have to run the air conditioning extra because of that, but this is probably true of any high end projector. Too bad they don't make one with an exhaust port that you can connect to a small duct for external venting.
Summary: Before I bought this projector I read many bad reviews about this product stating that the bulb live is short (around 4 months), but I have this projector for more than a year (more than 600 hours) and still using the original bulb.
Summary: Got this projector just before Thanksgiving.Awesome does not begin to describe picture quality. Our screen we painted on wall , used a do it yourself article I found online, using Sherwin Williams paint.The screen is 135 inches wide, diagonal like 175 inches (not exact because measured by myself). Took about 15 minutes to hang it and set screen size.First movie we watched was Thor 3d, which we had saw in theater. The 3d quality was far better than what we saw in theater.
Summary: After extensive research for a Home Cinema projector with HD and 3D capabilities I settled for this model. I am using it on a 16:9 116" diagonal fabric purchased from Carl's Place, in a black-outed room. The image is simply stunning. Watching HD bluray is a delight, the 3D experience is as good as the movie theater (watching Avatar 3D bluray), and the upscaling capability provide a very decent image for DVD's reviving the existing collection of DVD's on hand.
