I have an offer of 1300 for a pretty lightly used epson 5010. Is that still worth it? Are there any other used projectors I should be considering?

I purchased one of the Visual Apex refurbs last month and it's quite a good projector. My sample has excellent convergence, good blacks, terrific brightness and good shadow detail.

My two quibbles with it would be that coming from DLP I'm really used to clean 3D and there is a surprising amount of crosstalk on my 5010. The other, more significant quibble is that LCD fill factor still doesn't keep up with DLP and Dila. I sit 11' from my 133" High power and there is a noticeable harshness and pixel structure to the image. When I sit in my second row, the picture looks fantastic. Keep your viewing distance at the right spot and you should enjoy the 5010 immensely...

How much of a difference is there in the 5020? How much do you think that difference is worth?
