I'll tell you that I'm very pleased overall with this projector. Its plenty bright so it can be used with ambient light. I play video games with ambient light coming in during the day and the picture is fine with me. This is in eco mode as well.

To me if you compare this with the Epson I enjoy the picture quality of the Sony much more. Just has a smoothness that I felt the Epson didnt have. In regards to the bulb I wouldn't be concerned with that as this issue can happen with any projector. The lens thing, I haven't seen any issues.

If you can get this for a good price I would say grab it up.

I've owned the 55es and Epson 5030. I have a few thousand hours currently on the 55es. The Sony is far far superior in every way.. except RF vs IR 3d.

What price point and condition are you getting this at?

What are your concerns and other projectors that you're thinking of purchasing?
