Are you located in the US? Visual Apex has a 30 day return policy. I'm not sure if AVS does anything like that.

As for 3D glasses, with the 5030 I ordered the Panasonic VIERA TY-ER3D4MU from Amazon. They're a good price and quite comfortable. I'm pretty sure the same glasses will work with the 5040.

Is changing the mount not an option? Also, who did you purchase the projector from? A number of online vendors give you 30 days hassle free returns.

I believe I first saw it in the preview for the TW9300 on cine4home. It's also in the manual that's available on the UK Epson site. Once again, that's for the TW9300.
