I have had my 5020UB for about 10 days now, and have spent countless hours adjusting and evaluating whether or not I'm going to get a replacement unit. Based on my findings I have decided I will be better off having it replaced.
Here is why...
1. Focus uniformity: the focusing at the bottom left corner of the screen is horrendous! Here is a picture of what it looks like down there:
2. Convergence (LCD panel alignment, or lack thereof): this is how the projector look with zero LCD alignment performed:
3. Blooming?: I'm not sure what to call it, but when I finally get my focus as sharp as it can be using the green channel, there is quite a bit of blooming on the upper-right side of every pixel:
Note this is after doing the LCD alignment to the best of my abilities, but it doesn't matter since it does the same without it.
I know many are having focus uniformity and convergence issues, but Is anyone else experiencing this blooming I am seeing? I would expect to see some on the blue or red channel after focusing on the green channel, but not at all (or this much) on the green channel.
PS> These are iPhone pictures, so I apologize if the quality makes it hard to see what I'm trying to show. I may try to get some better ones using my DSLR later this evening.
