You have the most extensive movie collection I've seen outside of the Library of Congress! Well done.

We have a Family Video about 10 minutes from our house and they have a nice selection of 3D movies which is great since Redbox does not rent them.

Family video is a great idea! I'm pretty sure there is one not far from me as well. going to go up there and check that out. Thanks for the tip!

I use family video a lot. I still don't like 3d though. Tried to watch The Lego movie in 3d and just didn't look that great and gave me a head ache as all ways.. Love the movie in 2d though.

I've had the Epson 5030 about 3 weeks now (with latest firmware) and am loving it!! I'm about 11' away from a 120" 16:9 screen and the picture is fantastic in 2D and 3D. I'm really blown away by the 3D image that this thing puts out in Dynamic Mode! To my eye, 3D can handle more sharpening than 2D without visible artifacts. In 3D I use SR 5 along with 25% HD mode on the darbee and WOW!! Just absolutely spectacular!! I cant imagine it looking much better. 2D can't handle as much. Most Blu Rays look great at SR 4 and maybe a little additional darbee @ ~20%. Sometimes the extra darbee is to much. Sometimes SR even needs to be backed off to 3 depending on the film. After playing with SR and the darbee quite a bit, for most high quality Blu Ray films in 2D I think I've found that I prefer SR 4 and possibly some additional darbee at a low percentage vs SR 3 with darbee at a higher percentage. I do love a sharp image I realize this might be a little much for some. I'm sure screen size and how far away you set play a role as well.

3D movies I have so far:
Avatar
Pacific Rim
Despicable Me II
Prometheus
Underworld: Awakening

Hopefully will be getting 5-6 more for Christmas I'm a huge 3D fan for sure. That said, I wouldn't want to watch everything in 3D. I think it definitely adds another dimension in realism though, coupled with good sound.

I think my only real gripe is the fan noise in 3D dynamic. My projector is about 4' up and behind my head a little. Eco is very quite but normal/high is def way louder. With sound cranked up its hardly noticeable though and during quite scenes you get used to it. Also auto iris on high can be heard a little. I never really hear it during a movie though.

All and all, this thing rocks!!

Guys,
The power cable that comes with the 5030 is pretty long

See attached pic. Any thoughts? Should I go with the shorter cable or is there a way I can hide the existing cable? One end will go into the ceiling outlet and then I will run the cable through the mount column. But I am left with a ton of cable on the other end (close to the projector)

Thoughts?

I bought a 12"cable from Amazon. They have 18",24"and so forth.

I just found out that if the projector is ceiling mounted, the fan runs louder than when it is shelf mounted, or upright. You can test this simply by switching the picture in your settings from 'ceiling' to 'front' to hear the difference (when you are in 3D or bright mode).

Bytebuster, just like climber07 I got a 2' cable through Amazon. Couldn't stand the look of wrapping a 6' cable in a coil. Nice clean, professional look now.

A year long thread and only one person shared their calibration settings?

Anyone else have anything to share? I'm looking to test some different configurations.

I tried the Projector Reviews settings and am pretty happy, but wondering if I can't squeeze out at little more performance.

I put the plug right next to the mount. I just wrapped the cord around the mount several times and then plugged it in. You can't see anything unless you're up on a ladder. I guess you could buy a shorter cable if you want.

I just cut the plug and enough cord off of the factory cord and put on a new plug from Lowes.

Works for me.

Well, the THX mode is fairly accurate out of the box, especially when it comes to the basics.

In terms of color gamut and white balance, using settings that have been measured to produce an accurate picture on another unit is about as effective as throwing a dice.

Adjusting settings according to personal preference is not calibration.

Here are my basic pro-calibrated settings for 2 and 3d:

2D -

Gamma: 0
Backlight:
Brightness: 0
Contrast: -2
Color: 0
Tint: 0
Sharpness: Standard/0
Low Red: -2
Low Green: 0
Low Blue: -6
High Red: -2
High Blue: -8
High Green: 0
Average Gamma - 2.4143
Average Color Temp - 6573.8671
Super White-on
Super Resolution -1 or 2 (I prefer 2)

3D -

Picture Mode: THX 3D
Color Temp: 6500K
Gamma: 0
Backlight:
Brightness: 0
Contrast: -2
Color: 0
Tint: 0
Sharpness: Standard/0
Low Red: -10
Low Green: 0
Low Blue: -15
High Red: -6
High Blue: -13
High Green: 0
Average Gamma -2.2081
Average Color Temp - 6411.5078

My unit was pushing a lot of blue. Remember that each pro calibration will have different results. Good luck and Merry Christmas!

True, but I always think of it as a good starting point, even if the end result isn't what you are looking for.

Thanks, Willymo, but yours were the one I was referring to!

Anyone know what the rules are about posting the settings from Projector Reviews? I dont want to violate anything.

My white balance settings look nothing like willymo's. On my particular unit I'd literally have at least as big a chance of achieving accuracy with a dice as with his settings. (My probability math skills are completely non-existent so literally may be too strong a word. I bet it's close though...)

well, since "literally" now is also officially defined as meaning "figuratively" I think you're good to go.

right now I am using the calibration settings from the "Sound and Vision" magazine review in THX mode. I plan to have my 5030 professionally calibrated by Chad B. this Spring/ Summer

I have those stored as one of my memory settings. Pretty sure I liked those better than the Projector Reviews settings.

What throw distance and screen are you using? Dedicated HT room, light controlled?

I'm really blown away by the 3D image that this thing puts out in Dynamic Mode! To my eye, 3D can handle more sharpening than 2D without visible artifacts. In 3D I use SR 5 along with 25% HD mode on the darbee and WOW!! Just absolutely spectacular!! I cant imagine it looking much better. 2D can't handle as much. Most Blu Rays look great at SR 4 and maybe a little additional darbee @ ~20%. Sometimes the extra darbee is to much. Sometimes SR even needs to be backed off to 3 depending on the film. After playing with SR and the darbee quite a bit, for most high quality Blu Ray films in 2D I think I've found that I prefer SR 4 and possibly some additional darbee at a low percentage vs SR 3 with darbee at a higher percentage. I do love a sharp image I realize this might be a little much for some. I'm sure screen size and how far away you set play a role as well.

See, milacqua? I've been dwarfed already, and there are people here who have 2.5x what proboller has.

That's cool you found a way to reduce fan noise in bright or 3D mode. Unfortunately with my set up, shelf mounted is out. I have it in my living room and is ceiling mounted/inverted to a drop down projector lift. Since its in the living room, the wife didn't want this beast of a projector hanging down in the middle of everything (she thought it would be a definite eye sore and she was probably right). Now you don't see it until its time for a movie Its pretty sweet, but costly for sure since it's not a DIY lift. In a dedicated room I wouldn't have went a lift.
