Yeah, I know it wasn't going to replace a 5030UB or anything. Was the ProjectorReviews link not an actual mini-review of the HC2040? I understand it's not a full review, but is there reason to hope...

Dang. Epson's announcement claimed better-than-ever black levels. I wasn't expecting "Ultra-Black" miracles, but I was at least hoping for equal to current DLP offerings. But according to the...

Awesome. Thanks for taking the time to go more in depth.

I have a fully light controlled room, and thus I do not need a light cannon. The main annoyance of the DT-510 is the (in my opinion)...

Can anyone confirm this comparison to the DT-510? It's what I'm planning to upgrade from and everything I had read lead me to believe that the 8350/8345 would be an upgrade with better blacks and...

I'm in the same boat right now as OP. I have a DT-510 that's on it's way out. I'd love to step up to a $2000 JVC or Sony, but that's not in the cards right now. What about this list:

You'd have to pm the designer, tsloms. He sent them to me when I asked. I might still have them around somewhere if he doesn't have them any more for some reason.

I have a Behringer A500 I use for my L/R tower mains right now. They are big 4 Ohm WMTMW that I didn't want to test with my RX. The A500 puts out 2x300W at 4 Ohms of fanless power. Not the best in...
