I was wondering if anybody can tell me what the List price of this projector is-I would like to have some referrence for negotiating with the dealer.
I know that the 5020 UB lists for about 2600. Am I correct that the only differences are the color of the unit, the extra bulb and a mounting bracket and 1 extra year of warranty with the 6020?
Thanks

Here is what a local HT guy told me when quoting me an outrageous price for a build a couple months ago:
Quote:
I also called the Epson rep to see what was the main difference between the 6020 and 5020 and this is what he sent me via email;
Home 5020 - $2,599
Mount - $297
Lamp - $299
Cablecover - $49
1yr. extended warranty - $419
Total - $3,663

The Pro 6020 is $3,499, saving $164 without mentioning ISF settings and more Anamorphic modes in the 6020.

So if anyone is actually paying $300 for another mount, and really wants a cable cover (for $50!!!), and values an extended warranty at $419, then they would get it.

Most people would bargain hard on the price of the 6020 or would probably go for a JVC or Sony at that price, unless they needed a lot of lens shift or need torch mode (I'm guessing) The 6020 also does better 3d supposedly but I've never seen it.

The pricing is close but to extend a year of the warranty to 3 years for a 5020 is $279.95, it costs $419 to add a year to the 6020 because the overall time (4 year) is longer and the older things get the more likely a problem will occur.

  However, the cable cover for the 5020 is $100 and not $49.  I guess it costs more to make whiterolleyes.gif  If your ceiling mounting the projector the cable cover is a nice addition to clean up an installation.  I'm not sure it is worth $100 though but $49 is not bad.

You can get a good mount, ceiling plate and drop tube for around $200 delivered. Foe less than $300 you can get a top of the line mount, ceiling plate and drop tube.

I always assumed that the 6020 was through dealers, so you could haggle on the price more. The actual value of the items doesn't justify the extra cost at all.

Have they changed the mount? The mount used to rely on friction to maintain projector position. In other words, did not lock into place.

If you decide to go Anamorphic the 6020 is the best as it contains those modes as well as color alignment correction ECC which someone on AVS mentioned as having better adjustments than the Sony 50es when using the CineVista lens. Something that few projectors provide. I was told it also comes with a more accurate calibration. I just purchased the 6020 for the A-lens feature as well as better 3D than competitors, especially 3D brightness and improved glasses over last years model. You should find them from authorized dealers for under $3k.

I hunted for data..can you point out where you saw that the 6020 was better than teh 50es for the cinevista lens?

I must be guilty because people say I am guilty because they chose to call me guilty because they refuse to see the truth. Much easier to be part of the mob..

I guess it could have been one of the engineers of the CineVista lens who had both the Epson and Sony 50es to test the chromatic abberation with. Here is what he had to say.

"Sony HW50 does not have the correction level adjustment range of the Epson we tested previously, for example, so yes - there is some residual aberration in pic 5. This is why we are working with our partners to tweak the technology for maximum effectiveness. However, despite the crudeness of the pictures, you can see that I was able to dial out a large degree of the aberration."

This is not really a selling point as he goes to explain that some people wouldn't notice CA anyways. Just pointing out some value added benfits to going 6020 as it gives you A-Lens options if you decide to upgrade in the future. I only say this because I purchased a 3010 and now bummed out that I have to upgrade.

It all depends on what you need. I carry the 6020 and 5020 and sell more 6020 because customers think it is a better value for them and like the longer warrantee. However if you don't need the mount and the extra stuff the 5020 is the way to go but you also loose anamorphic capabilities, THX calibration (not that you can't pay someone $400 to do it) etc. Either way it is a great projector. If you are near NJ come stop over for a Demo.

What pisses me off is that some internet authorized dealers that pay no commission and profits to employees, rental space, air conditioning, insurance etc, still retain the manufacturers MSRP of brick and mortar stores without any of the expenses. I found one authorized dealer who cuts the MSRP price respectively and passes on the savings to the customer. I'll never pay MSRP again for non brick and mortar purchases.

I was speaking to guys at Fry's electronics who are able to slash 25% off MSRP themselves which I don't think even effects stores profit or the distributor. That's just commission and employee discounts alone. Discount even more for store profits to pay air conditioning, rent, insurance, hourly wages etc and you see just how much you could save from some authorized internet dealer. Most of my purchases are 25% off MSRP which makes sense since they don't have the overhead.

I'm selling the 6020 for $2000 brand new in box if anyone is interested. I decided to go with the 5020 for the wireless option thus no need for this.

The 5020 picture is great, it's just bright enough on my 2.3 gain screen to look like a typical LCD panel which some have commented. Forget when people say light torch. Once you go bright, everything else looks dim.

Thanks

Why would you of just not bought a external wireless HDMI Set up instead of downgrading the projector to add the wireless when you could of done it aftermarket amazon sells any number of them.

Because the one I saw was $200 + and required another external power supply. The Epson is built in, hidden, out of site and mind and is powered by the projector and is not an added cost. Some reviews were not favorable for the external if I recall. My old 3010 wireless was flawless. Edit: the 5020 was already opened and the 6020 was factory sealed making it more valuable. I already sold it for $2k.

Hope that kills it.
