I live in Europa and I ahve made the update. I also have a darbee and previously owned a sony hw50es, so I know very well the reality creation.

The new "super resolution" is NOT at all like the darbee because it sharpens the whole picture...and the noise in it: exactly like the reality creation from sony (maybe a bit less than the RC that I could not really use on the sony because even on 1, the noise from a blu-ray source was always too much amplified).

I did a lot of comparisons with darbee on and off and the "super resolution V2" on 1 to 5, and I must say that both are really complementary.

I use the darbee on 40% and the super resolution on level 2. Already with 3 is the noise in the picture too noticeable (like RC on 1...).

I like the result very much! However even if I am thankfull to epson to have emproved the "super resolution", I think it is sad they did not propose a new menu for it like they actually did on the new epson 6600...

that's good to know I don't have a darbee but was going to get one, I watched 2 movies last night one was a an animated one for kids and I had SR on 3 and it looked really good no noise at all and super sharp I only saw ringing in the picture twice in 3 hours but I do sit over 4.5m from a 120'' screen. I do believe if you sit close you would want to back it off a bit. Overall I think it has added a lot to the PQ it just looks better to me, think i will still grab a darbee soon and do more testing, cheers.

Doesn't seem a US update has been released. I tried to register my projector online, but it wouldn't recognize the SN. I called Epson and got no where after 30 minutes and also the call center person told me they don't recommend the update. What?

Well great, now I have the flashing power and temp lights. I've tried starting it about 5 times tonight and each time it goes to full speed on the fan almost immediately, the lights start blinking, then the shutter closes, and about a minute later the fan stops. I'm getting another replacement. My original projector, which I set up in June, had dust blobs, so I got this one. Seems like a pretty high failure rate for these things, I know I'm not the first to go through multiple projectors.

I have been following this thread and the 6030 thread as well. Of the Epsons, I have owned the 6500 and now the 6030. Up until the 6030, I installed all my projectors myself. There seems to be a few more problems associated with the 5030, or maybe that is because there are probably many more 5030s sold than 6030s. As an example, there are 119 pages to this thread but only a dozen or so pages for the 6030 thread. But for whatever reason, more people have complaints like yours whereas the complaints with the 6030 are few and far between.

Although the two projectors are virtually the same, I wonder if it has anything to do with the build quality itself and the quality control Epson puts in the 6030? I say that because the dealers these are sold through would not tolerate having to go back to their customers time and again (especially in my case since I live 40 miles from my dealer). Maybe it has something to do with the professional installation process and set up the dealers go through. The main reason I went with the 6030 over the 5030 was because the dealer offered a very good price on installation and has an excellent reputation in the area. I am glad I used this dealer because I was very happy with their work and professionalism - and the projector reflects that. I wonder if anyone has taken both of these projectors side by side to look for any possible differences in actual quality and build factors?
