Your reviews are great, I am not trying to push your buttons. I wasn't trying to degrade your reviews, however, I also do not do hit and runs.
BUT, this thread serves its own purpose, it talks about many projectors and sub $3000 projectors that are not in your reviews, that I owned and tested, as well as summarizes in a different wording for people in the sub-3k threads. That is why this is in the sub-3k thread. There is valuable info in here with a slightly different take. I don't think people want me to post a bunch of calibration graphs in here, that is not the "target clientele" of this thread. i have a different viewpoint from some of this as you did, just slightly. Like as much as I appreciate the 3D on the Epson 5010/5020, I did notice the ghosting gets much worse as the lamp ages, I pointed that out before.
I did not do hit and runs on the projectors I discuss, and these viewpoints do not come from one source (they are summarized). That is why you don't see me writing a review of the Runco LS-5 or the Mits hc9000, I did see them in a hit and run...
I have over 50 hours on the Epson 5010, many more HOURS on the others (50+ on the Panny 7000, 3000+ on the Viewsonic, 1500+ on JVC's, 500+ on the Benq w7000, 1000+ on Mitsubishi hc4000, etc... etc...). I am just not as vocal about the testing experience anymore. Instead of spending my time where it matters (like on the PJ calculator), I could be wasting my time on graphs when you've already done that work, but I choose not to. Though I agree your reviews are more detailed, I do not have that kind of time on my hands at the moment, I have done reviews like that on some projectors. If I did do it, it would be a repeat of data that already exists.
Like I said though, this review does borrow some from you obviously, but not as much as you think, I do get around myself
