Last week my 6500ub was destroyed in a lightening strike (along with a bunch of other electronics) and the insurance guy came out a couple days ago to do the assessment. I have to wait a couple weeks before the adjuster calls me with the decision to repair or replace the projector. I am pretty sure from what the appraiser said it will be replaced and I am shooting for either the 5030 or 6030, however, they probably will not buy that due to the 3D capability. Although Epson will probably introduce new projectors at CEDIA, when do you think they will actually be going on sale? I can wait until September I suppose, maybe even October if the upgrade over the 5030 is significant. Does anyone have any idea when they would be available for sale and what the new projectors will be and contain?
