I have an 8700ub that's getting replaced with a refurb in a few days due to convergence issues. It was off by almost 4 pixels in some places, which was bad enough to give me a long-lasting headache whenever I read text, using my HTPC.
Epson assured me that the replacement unit would be inspected to make sure it had proper convergence beforehand, but I had gone through all that before last year with a different Epson projector, where my new unit had perfect convergence, but developed a brown cast on the side, and I went through 4 replacements, because the convergence was never as good. In the end, I had to settle for one with green being 1 pixel off.
I was wondering, does anybody who's gotten a refurbished Epson lately have anything to report on the convergence of the unit? I'd like to think that they've eventually gotten better at fixing them, or at least realized that spending a little extra time aligning the pixels better would save them plenty in shipping fees!
