Upgrade from Epson 8500UB

Looking to upgrade from Epson 8500UB to something in the $1000-$1500 price bracket.
120" screen.

90% movies and 10% gaming. 3D would be nifty but rather would get IQ.


Much thanks!

No real upgrade path from an 8500ub at that price. You'll have to bump up your budget at least 1000 dollars to get comparable performance.

don't mean to thread hi-jack here-- but I'm looking to upgrade my 8500ub as well. How much of an upgrade would the 5030ub be for me? Thought about just keeping my 8500ub for a while longer, but going to a place with less control over the light situation-- will the 5030ub be that much better of a daytime/ambient light movie/tv projector than the 8500?

In a living room situation, the 5030 will be brighter. In a dark room, you probably wont see much of a difference. The 5030 does add 3d if you're interested in that.
