For the recent post about Carada screens, couple quick notes:
1. They will send out samples of the different fabric options. Tape these up side by side and it really helps make a decision. (I went BW)
2. For screen size, I highly recommend going without a screen for a month or so and just shoot onto a wall (if this is an option). The right size should naturally present itself to you based on your viewing distance, viewing habits, propensity for motion sickness, etc. Before buying a projector I was convinced I wanted a certain size screen (think 125" 16:9). Turns out that was way to big for my wife and I (both felt ill after short viewing sessions) and am really glad we didn't commit to that before we knew what we liked.

I started to read thru this thread, answers seem mixed. I have a light controlled basement, and viewing will mainly be in evening regardless, but I had an epson 8500 ub which I loved, but sold as it aged. I have a 112 inch fixed fram Grandview 1.0 screen, and my last projector was mounted at 13.0 feet. I could feesibly move up a foot if needed, but what is the consensus on the brightness of this projector. I read somewhere in this thread that epson recommended no larger than 110 inch screen for calibrated modes. Has anyone here upgraded from the epson 8500ub ? If so , is this brighter ? Also, is the fan really that noticable ? Cant remember ever hearing my epson 8500 ub which was mounted near seating, but above on ceiling. I'm considering the 5030, 5025 and the Sony hw 40es. The 5025 at 1699 with extra bulb seems like a great deal, but seems like this projector doesnt put out alot of light, calibrated. Ill appreciate any feedback I can get . Thanks

That's great advice, and exactly what I'm doing. I've just finished painting the wall with the Sherwin Williams ProClassic Satin Enamel. After much investigation, this was rated as being very close to a 1.0 gain and fairly neutral. I've used the exact dimensions of a 124" screen size, 16:9. I'm in a totally light controlled environment, so hopefully this will allow me to judge whether or not this is an appropriate size, or if I need to go smaller etc. before purchasing a screen. Unfortunately I'm traveling over the next few weeks so the 5030 projector will arrive but won't be able to do anything until later this month. If anyone is interested I'll post the results. Again want to thank everyone for all their help. RT

where do you see the 2 pairs of glasses? I want to buy from visual apex but via amazon to get 0% for 12mths... can I still do the bulb rebate?

I want to die in my sleep like grandpa... not kicking and screaming like the people in his car.

If you go to visual apex site it shows all the details including 2 pair of 3D glasses. If you look at the fine print on Amazon sold by Visual Apex it indicates that lamp rebate apply to purchases from authorized dealer. I would give AVS a call to see what they might offer as well.

That's how I bought mine--VA via Amazon about 3(?) months ago and received my free lamp no problem. The 5030 comes with 2 pair of 3D glasses.

Got the 5030ub this weekend. The price and the free lamp makes this deal one of the best values right now imho. I'm surprised how good the THX and Cinema modes look out of box.

Almost finished with our basement family, media room and bar. Love the 5030ub with my 110" Black Diamond Zero Edge!
