I've seen this a few times before on other projectors. You have a power issue, COS. It's not going to get better. Get the projector replaced right away.

Don't waste your money on the 5030 unless you really want the Epson 3d glasses. The 5030 and 5025 perform exactly the same. My friend and I (a salesman in the projector department of the store)...

I don't think there is a European version of the 5025, Maarten. PQ wise, i can tell you from experience that the 5030 and 5025 have exactly the same picture.

I can't imagine a scenario where the 5030 wouldn't have enough lens shift. Keystoning is for table mounted business projectors. It shouldn't even exist in a Home Theater projector. (IMO) Follow...

In terms of Brightness, color, contrast detail, and placement flexibility, the Epson wins. They're both very sharp with loads of detail. (I'd say DLP in general still has a small advantage) The...

At 16 feet, you'll have a much bigger picture than 120 inches. More like 150 inches plus. You'll have get the projector much closer. Around 10-13 feet.
