the 2999 is accurate you just need to know where to look
also someone asked about the Epson 5020 vs the HW50
I did a shootout with me and my friend, he owns the epson and i own the HW50...
2d picture quality if you use RC at about 30, imo, totally beats the Epson, it makes it look almost smoothed over where as the HW50 with RC at 30 gives you very fine extra detail.
over all you can get more lumens out of the Epson, but the Sony gives you a better picture even at slightly less lumens ( however the sony gives more CALIBRATED lumens, about 1000 vs 670 )
If you can see both do that, but the sony is better all around in my opinion.
If you like to watch a lot of HSBS 3d content however, the Epson does it much bettter with almost no ghosting. however if you watch 3d ISO Frame packed or BD 3d then go with the Sony... you will be happier over all.
