Seems to be working intermittently now. Turned it on today it was fine for about 10 min, then went out. Power cycled and its been working for over two hours. Really odd.

A pair of glasses means two eyes/one frame. That is standard terminology when referring to sunglasses, eyeglasses, etc. Same as a pair of pants means two legs, one waist.

Available again from the Epson store. Might not be the lowest price ever, but given the scarcity of refurb UB models lately, this one is a pretty good deal. It is still $350 cheaper than the 5010...

Just lost my HDMI 1. HDMI 2 still works, but looks like I'll be calling in for warranty. Hopefully I don't get on the roulette wheel of bad refurbs.
