Below is my review on the Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 5020UB, which I've been enjoying for a month and a half now! I really took my time and put a lot of thought into the review, I hope users (and the AVS panel) find it helpful and informative! Please let me know if you have any questions, concerns, or feedback.
Unfortunately, due to the damage of the chip, I cannot identify any markings other than what are visible in the picture below. Can anyone help my find the right one?
Also, below are better pictures of the capacitors I need as well, still trying to identify what brand they are (rscon is not showing up anywhere in my search, but rescon is?)

The subwoofer to my Polk Audio RM6750 got hit by lightning a couple weeks back, below is a picture of the damage on the main board. It appears that the chip (or whatever that black semiconductor is) blew up and shredded a bunch of capacitors (at least that's what I think all that brown paper stuff is).

The only difference I can see is that the more expensive cable is 22AWG vs 24AWG, but the lesser expensive cable is CL2 rated? Is the...
I am looking to connect my PC to my recently purchased Sony KDL52W4100 (52in LCD 1080P 120Hz). The video card on my PC (Nvidia GeForce 6800) has both VGA and DVI outputs. I estimated that I will need a 35ft cable. Which connectivity option would provide the optimal signal?
From the research I have done, most have stated that a digital signal (DVI) is less likely to exhibit any signal degradation over longer distances. However, my HDTV does not have a DVI input, so I...
