I am seeing a lot of posts about the Epson 5030, but has anyone directly compared it with the 5020 for 2-D viewing? 


Is the picture that much sharper?


Is the Iris less noisy?


or is it time to bargain hunt a 5020 because there really isn't that much if any difference unless you like 3-d


inquiring minds want to know ... thanks guys

I put one in today I can't tell very small difference if any. But I look at them in different rooms and the room and screen makes a huge difference. Supposedly the black levels are better I want to say it was but again could of been the room or screen. But at this point you may as well go for the 5030 the new model it has a game mode if you are into that as well that might make resale better and is a year newer.

Note: Any posts are of my personal opinions and not to reflect upon any business.
