LOL. The Mitsubishi does a good job with those Epson panels. I haven't seen the new Epson models yet so I really can't recommend them. I am sure the new Epson models will give my Mitsubishi a good run for the money, and may even beat it in a lot of areas, most notably contrast. I still think the sharpness, fully motorized adjustments, and nearly silent operation in every situation I can think of, make the Mits. HC6500 very appealing to me. I also like the colors on the Mits. HC6500, not perfect by any means, but better than some I have seen, and I can live with slightly higher black levels for the price.
Again not dissing the new Epson models. They may end up being the best of the latest 3LCD crop. They certainly will be priced very competitively.
