Hi Everyone! So I think this is my first post I've been reading the site for what seems like a long time now. So many great insights and technical as well as moral support on here. Anyways I just received my Epson 3010. I did an unboxing video and put it up on youtube. I listed the link below. Ill have a more in-depth review up most likely tomorrow. I felt like this could be a good way to introduce myself, but for now you'll all have to be a little patient...

wtf? I thought the epson was DELAYED? GREAT GOOGLY MOOGLY!!! Where'd you get it?

Edit: Projector People shows they're shipping the 3010 now.

Can you get an Optoma HD3300 and compare it against your 3010, then return one of them for us? xD!!! Thanks.

WirelessHD version not shipping yet?

Can you put the more in depth review up tonight (xD)? What other projectors have you set up/seen?

Current Projects:
IN PROGRESS (80%) - Building 3D Theater room.
IN PROGRESS (30%) - Building Lounge/Hallway Area.
IN PROGRESS (15%) - Building Home LAN (4 PCs).
ON HOLD - Building Home Gym.
ON HOLD - Building Simulation Room (Eyefinity).
ON HOLD - Building Theater room (Sim2 HT380, 2.35 14ft wide).

Well I wouldn't want to offend Epson of America. I took down the video, Ill hold off on my review of the unit until there are some "official" reviews out. It was not ordered as a review unit, nor did i request it as a review unit. Ill even hold back from letting everyone know where I ordered it. Just got done playing some Gears of War 3 in 3d. I will say its awesome and leave it at that for now. Hope I didn't ruffle anyone's feathers.

Hey wait! Can you compare it to any projectors you've had? Kind of wondering how it stacks up against a 8700ub

I can, I've seen the 8700, 8350 as well as the hd33 in person. I don't want to start any issues with posting anything I'm not supposed to be. Maybe I was sent a review unit by accident I really have no idea? Everything looks to be production though. I preordered couple weeks ago.

fraisa, if he's honestly a consumer and you're convincing him to withold his opinion, you're being a d-bag.

sprocket360, if you aren't under any kind of distributor or reviewer relationship with Epson, you should ignore this guy and give your honest opinion. Many of us are chomping at the bit to hear how it performs!!

As stated in the other thread, irrelevant typo. You're still being a d-bag if he's honestly a consumer. So I happen to be going back and forth between the optioma & epson threads right now, eagerly awaiting these results. Want to guess how many of the consumers you're screwing with right now are doing the same? Why don't you stop threatening honest consumers and go back to harping on the products you sell (epson/mitsubishi/black diamond) while pretending it's just an honest opinion!

If you paid your hard earned dollar, let no one scare you into silence. This is a unit you own and you have every right to talk about it publicly....its called free speech

I am a consumer, no disclosure forms or any contracts signed. But, if it was a mistake I'd prefer to not be held accountable I wouldn't want this to have any blowback for any of the parties involved. I'll say I have no buyers remorse, for 1500 bucks it performs better then last years completion I've seen selling for more. This is going from memory and without having a projector of any value in my home to compare it to side by side, so take it for what you will. The 3d xbox games I've tried tonight have been very impressive. I didn't notice any artifacting, ghosting, crosstalk etc. Aiming in 3d took a bit of getting used to but I think that's more game/player then projector issue. Very very respectable black levels... I'll try to get it calibrated tomorrow and see how much more awesome can be sqeaked out of it.. I'll leave it at that, I still want Epson to honor their warranty incase anything happens haha!

xbox doesn't do 3D, unless you mean the projector converts it, then I would think that would be just meh, compared to real 3D.

You are a customer, you can 100% post the unboxing video and post your opinion. This is not going to affect your warranty. This is what AVS is for. We appreciate any insight you can share with us.

Can you confirm there is no lens shift

Also this fraise guy is really annoying! Tries to sell hugely priced screens in a sub 3k projector forum, furthermore he's not an assured advertiser

Check with epson if your worried as there are soo many people who want to hear your views on here, your not a professional reviewer just a consumer. I am sure units have shipped to consumers numerous times before they have been reviewed

It's annoying this has even been raised as an issue, you've paid our money it is yours to have your opinion over!!

dude i saw the youtube video, very cool looking. he seemed to act like a normal user and not reviewer, he also mentioned he appeared to be the first guy who has put something up on youtube. this guy seems legit, although he was probably just a browser of AVS before joining.

Remember, projector people is already shipping the 3010. Who wants to bite first? I'll send an email asking about the revisioning of the units. Maybe the 3010E is the one getting revised- because that one isn't shipping yet. I'd assume Projector Reviews/Central is reviewing the E version.

and fraisa I like you man, but it's not right to scare a new AVS forum member like that - you ought to be careful yourself, LOL.

And nothign to be afraid of from Epson, it was supposed to be delayed production (from review sites) because they had to tweak some things, so I might be a little worried if you have the latest revision?

You have to be kidding Fraisa. We are all waiting for a review of this PJ and you unnecessarily scare him?

Sprocket360: Please continue! How loud is the iris? What is the vertical offset for the PJ? (Where do you have the PJ mounted in height and what is the height of the image? ...and what is the size of the image?) If you then zoom in and out does the top of the image stay put or move up/down? I *really* could use answers to these questions!

Thanks!

If anyone has specific questions send me a pm and I'll try to answer them later today after work. On the unit I have there is no lens shift, however there is a hardware slider that adjusts horizontal keystone digitally. I actually had to check to see if the auto iris was on, it was very quiet I'll see if I can get my decible reader to pick it up tonight to get an exact reading.

I spoke to the place I ordered the projector from this morning. The good folks over at Projector People said there was no issue posting any reviews I had about the projector. They have been very helpful and offer great customer service, I've ordered from them in the past and definitely will again in the future.
Ill make the video available again, and try to get something up tonight with some pictures of the screen in action. I have a 100" Da-Lite HCCV screen at 1.1 gain that I'll be testing with. Once again, this is my opinion of the projector in my own home. This is not a professional review, I also don't sell any equipment, this will be just my honest opinion.
