Did you guys get a blank email like that? What number are you calling to check on the rebate status? I just want to make sure they didn't try (and fail) to contact me because some paperwork or something wasn't in order.

The Epson Rebate Response Line # is 1-800-277-6187. The # is on the bottom of the rebate form. Probably have to wait 'til tomorrow to call.
That's the number I called to check on mine. Got my lamp a couple weeks ago.


Good luck!

Hi all

I have just joined the forum , I am a happy New owner of a 9200 which is
Hooked up to a darbee 5000 and resides I my total bat cave of a cinema room..converted garage.
seems the 9200 is more popular in the states..I'm from the UK

I am hugely impressed with mine the 2d is superb and the 3d is phenomenal I've gone a bit 3d crazy and my 7 year old son loves it to

I have a homemade acoustic screen 102 inches in 16.9 , with home built masking for 2.35.1 viewing

Hope to learn any tips and give the benefit of my limited experience

Hi, I am newbie to projectors and have question for experts. Just bought a 5030ub and going to buy a Seymour retractable screen with XD material. I will have the Epson mounted 17 feet on a back shelf and viewing distance be about 14 feet. A 120" diagonal 16:9 is largest screen I can fit and will roll down in front of my 70"tv in corner. My question is would it make much difference in brightness to get a 114" screen and move it 7 inches closer which would make the viewing angle same as 120". But it is slightly small screen and would be a bit closer which might make picture brighter? The projectorcentral calculator showed it would be 2 foot lamberts brighter. It sounds like Epson is a light cannon and probably not big difference? I just worry because Epson will be mounted little over half of telephoto range and I worry it will not be bright enough. It is not a dedicated theater room but I can control light. I wish I could mount Epson closer on ceiling but have to deal with WAF. Thanks! After seeing picture on a mocked up melamine board I can't believe I havn't got into the world of projectors before now! So freakin excited. On a side note, I also just bought a Sierra 2/170se system and a HSU Vtf-15H Mk 2 so you can tell I am a happy camper. I now have a bunch of Athena AS-F2's/AS-B1's for sale if anyone in Iowa/Mn is interested.

You are only a foot away from ideal with a 120" screen. I don't think inches will make a noticeable difference anyway. The Epson is very bright and I think you will be pleasantly surprised. I have a 106" gray screen with .85 gain at 14 feet and I use eco mode. The living room setting is very bright and the THX and cinema modes are good for light controlled viewing.

I would go with the 120" personally. Mine is ceiling mounted at 17 feet and I have a 118" screen and it works great. I sit about 15 feet from the screen. Good times!

Hi to all 5030 owners here, would you recommend a Darbee or is the "Super Resolution" I believe its called good enough?

You're going to get conflicting responses as tastes and setups vary. Here's my opinion:

I don't like Super Resolution and don't use it at all. For me the effect is very non film like and adds too much of a processed look. Instead I use the Darbee processing in my Oppo 103D - but only when the content is fairly clean. I like movies with grain but I don't like to use Darbee on them. On clean content I find the Darbee effect to be great, partly because it's rather subtle. Also, my eyes are about 8' from a 100" screen. I'm guessing I might be more inclined to use SR if I had a bigger screen.

Adjusting settings according to personal preference is not calibration.

I don't have a darbee and never have so I can't speak for the difference between SR and them. However I do like what they did with the super res personally. It all depends on the movie though like the above thread states. Typacally I tend to use sr 2 or 3 on movies unless they have a lot of grain. Sports I crank the SR and FI up and it looks great. I have a 135 inch 16:9 screen in my setup. I was planning to get a darbee before ever having my pj but I think I'm personally going to not worry about it for now at least. I'm way happy with how my picture looks just using the built in SR!

I use SR on 3 for most content and I think it looks great. Some movies look good with 4. But generally I find 4 and 5 too grainy. I don't have a darbee so can't comment on that.

Again, only my personal preferences: on recent big budget movies and animation, I find SR 2 or 3 and Darbee 30 - 40% works pretty well, but for older grainier material (B&W films and color films from 50s and 60s), I tend to turn off SR, but sometimes keep Darbee at 30% or even off completely. I find there's a bit of trial and error involved with each title, particularly if you're setting up for a movie night.
