As a previous, happy, Epson 8100 owner and one who had both the 5030 and 40es at the same time, I can honestly say, the Sony. You won't regret it.

Yes it is frustrating! The music industry missed the boat IMO. I generally don't buy movies, I rent them since most of the time, I watch them once and then that is it. With concerts, I buy them and...

I sold my 8100 a while back when I upgraded projectors but the 8100 was and is a very nice projector, especially for that price. If that is your budget, you can't go wrong for that price.

It depends on the aspect ratio the director chose. Also some movies, such as The Dark Knight will switch from letter box to full screen and then back again. Just depends on the director and his/her...

Great to hear. The picture is incredible and another week's wait will be worth it for one that works properly.

I am not an Epson hater or a Sony fanboy. My previous projector was an Epson and I loved it. I fully expected to replace it with another Epson, the 5030. I decided I owed it to myself to try both....

I didn't ceiling mount mine, but I had the Epson and the Sony at the same time. If you do that, you will end up with the Sony IMO. Big difference.

Also look for the CLR1000b, it can be had for around $100 on eBay and is the non fancy version of the 2000(no gloss end caps, just a boring box but excellent sound!) I had one for years with my...

No, you will want the 3000 or at the very least, a CLR1000b. I tried the 2300, I loved the 1000b, but now I have the 3000. That should answer your question!

You are not the odd man out, I prefer the built in subs with additional stand alone subs. You can never have too much bass:D

Great to hear, pun intended;) I still recommend that you look at finding a CLR1000 or a CLR1000b. The difference is in the tweeter. The 1000 has the soft dome and the 1000b is metal, matching the...
