+1!
Received mine today as well. I sent in the rebate material on 12/1. Actually showed up sooner than I expected. Since the lamps only have a 90 day warranty I'll wait a month then swap the original for the free one. Then I'll have 60 days of warranty on the freebie & the original will be put away after the warranty period with only 200 hours or so.

It's either Blu-ray (or BD), or DVD. There's no such thing as a Blu-ray DVD.

Adjusting settings according to personal preference is not calibration.

Thanks,

I really don't know about those but I bought 2 pair of these. http://www.ebay.com/itm/3ACTIVE-3D-G...item3ceac234cf
They work great and are very comfortable. Seem to be well made and come with a nice storage case, usb cable & adapter. Actually prefer them to the Epsons. The vendor shipped FAST as well.
Good luck!

Even with your PJ ceiling mounted, you can go into the settings and invert the picture and hear the fan speed/noise decrease.


After changing to shelf mount I usually don't notice the fan even in normal modes.
Thanks for the direction, I ordered this and should have it installed this weekend, I look forward to the fan noise subsiding indeed.

I switched the picture on my ceiling mounted 5030 and the fan noise went down considerably. I was very surprised! But also disappointed. My projector is in the middle of an open area family room and there's no back wall where I can mount a shelf like the one mentioned above. Would anyone happen to know if there's some kind of shelf apparatus that could be hung from the ceiling so the projector can be ceiling mounted but not upside down?

Same here jaydee, projector is on a ceiling with no surround walls. I still don't understand why Epson does this when ceiling mouting the projector. In fact, it annoys me so I'm very much considering to sell it to get the Sony HW55.

Of course you are right and I'm guessing you actually did not have an answer to my question.
Seriously the correction is appreciated and noted.

Chief has a tray mount that allows non-inverted ceiling mounting. It is of course for projectors that do not have the option of flipping the image. Obviously it is larger and not as aesthetically pleasing.

Every one is talking about fan noise .. I don't hear the fan at all on mine. I just hear the iris . Sounds kind of like a mechanical grinding sound. Only time I can some what hear the fan is when I put it in high lamp. Mine is ceiling mounted.

I'm new to projectors, am building a home with a theater room. Unfortunately the entries and shape of the room forces me to put my projector on the short wall giving me 11' from the back of the projector to the screen. I'm looking to buy the 5030ub but projector central calculator doesn't recommend this distance for a 100" picture.

Does anyone have experience with an 11' throw distance and max picture size without degrading quality. I haven't purchased a screen either. Looking at an Elite screen with 1.1 gain. Room will be dark. Projector will be ceiling mounted.

Thanks for the help.

In eco mode the fan is not an issue but if I want to watch on a brighter setting because I have the room lights on then the fan is quite loud.

The grinding of the iris is also very loud. I find it distracting in dramas and stuff.

My projector's lens sits about 11 feet from my screen (closer to 10.5). I fill a 100 inch 16x9 screen with no problem. In fact, I can go comfortably to about 106 inches. Just make sure your measuring from the lens to the screen... Good luck and God Bless!

I was under the impression that you measure from the back of the projector. Will it make a big difference? If measuring from the lens I will be just less than 10' to the screen since the 5030ub is about 15.5" D and my room is 11' wide.

I have been avoiding 3D viewing lately for this very reason. I am very much looking to get mine mounted right side up this weekend.

The throw distance is measured from the LENS to the screen.

I "think" and I'm not an expert but I thought I had read this before. The fan runs higher (and therefor louder) when the image is inverted because this would mean that the projector is high up and near the ceiling where the heat would get trapped on the ceiling. I don't really get it either but I guess the concept is to avoid over heating up near the ceiling they feel the fan should run at a higher RPM?

Interesting. My theory was that inverting the image took more processing power so it would run hotter.

That could be too. Again I don't know for sure but that was my theory. I can't recall if I had actually read that or if I just thought I did though

I was concerned about using that shelf because it can swing on its pivot, and could therefore get knocked. Is there much friction on the pivot - enough to keep it stationary? Presumably it doesn't matter much in your case because it's so high in the room?

I ended up ordering the Omnimount Tria. It doesn't swivel, and it has a curved black glass front which almost makes it look custom-made for the 5030/6030. It's not the most robust piece of engineering I've ever seen, but it seems to do the job. I've attached a photo and an Amazon link below:

I don't have any issues with it getting knocked or swiveling. Although it is possible for it to happen I suppose. I wouldn't say it's hard to make swivel but it also won't do it on its own unless someone meant to. It's high enough for me to walk underneath it and I'm 6'4" so its not much of a concern for me.

I like the look of that one you ordered as well. It would be kind of nice to have the glass be black but they both look good. I have the 5030 so my projector isn't all black like the 6030.

That is correct. This is part of an email reply from Epson technical support, in April of last year.


We tested out our HC 5030UB here and it operated the same way in regards to having the unit set to Front vs Front Ceiling. The product lead had been out of the office the last few days, but I was able to speak with him today and he confirmed that the fans will run higher when set to front/ceiling by design. The reason for this is that when the projector is set to front ceiling, it is assumed that the projector will be placed higher up near the ceiling where hot air rises. The projector is designed to have the fans run higher when set to front/ceiling to compensate.

Yes, totally agree, and actually in some ways I prefer the one you used because of its lower-profile wall mount. That was the one I was going to order until the company told me about the swivel, but it looks like you've got a great setup there.
