Ok update time, as I didn't want to be one of those people who only post when they have a problem, but when things are working stay in the shadows.
This is very unfair for the product and the forum, where others, like myself, may be reading this and anxiously deciding whether to take the plunge and buy the 5030.
Having thought the 3D was bit of a let-down, due to really bad crosstalk, ghosting and motion blur, I spent last night running through 3D settings (helpfully found in this forum).
Also was about to order that Oppo Blu-Ray player with Darbie [OPPO BDP-103D], as my Epson 5030UB plays via a gaming desktop PC, anything to get the precious 3D working!
I’m not 100% sure, but after I did a fresh install of NVidia graphics drivers, suddenly the 3D is just perfect, and well above my high expectations for this projector.
Basically I removed the 3D Vision component, and then reinstalled 3D Vision (you need this to get 3D TV working). I don’t have the 3D Vision emitter attached, and didn’t when I first plugged in the Epson, but it appears there may have been a legacy 3D driver conflict here.
Wow, suddenly everything is completely watchable, no eye strain at all, and no motion blur. The 3D depth is slightly less pronounced than before, but that’s really not important, as the image is just superb.
For the few folks who have 3D issues and connect their Epson 5030UB to their PC, maybe try this, especially if you’ve come from a 3D Vision setup.
Greg, if you don’t mind me asking, what 3D settings do you use on dynamic (FI, depth, glasses brightness etc)?
Also ordered both Tangled and Ultimate Wave Tahiti, so looking forward to checking these out this week!
Thanks again for your help and advice, it's much appreciated.
