Thank you. I will look into this when my Panny comes back from repair.

i'm not COMPLETELY labelling your posts as trolling, but you are knocking this product down in an unamicable manner. in just a few days you may be dissuading potential purchases of this projector. do a fair shootout if you wish, but your words seem to be edging on borderline angst. let it go and go enjoy your epson.
also, it seems that you're disgruntled. sure, we've all been pissed over a brand new purchase that did not live up to expectations. deal with it and move on. no need to defame a product, nor a company. i got my panny 4k from projector people as well. i was a rookie to the projector game. I PERSONALLY made certain i did not exceed the 4 hour return limit on the projector. it was my responsibility. i wouldn't expect a handout. seriously, how many people do you think probably ask the same of projector people, possibly on a daily basis?
i equate going over the 4 hour limit to my girlfriend fighting a red light camera in court when the proof is in the video. she did a "california stop", something we ALL do on a daily basis. she trusted that the "gray" area's in the law may work in her favor, but such was not the case. you were expecting special treatment for your mistake and then when you didn't get it, you defame the company you purchased from. i say this in the making in your earlier posts and then after a few days it came out full-fledged. no matter a few posts back you "let them off the hook" or what not, potential customers may and WILL be turned off by your "accusations". tread carefully.
Your post is uncalled for. The Epson 8500UB shuts down within around 10 seconds of hitting the power button. Does that mean the Epson is "doing it wrong," despite having a warranty twice the length of the Panasonic PT-AE4000U?
And second, I'm not defaming any product or any company. I'm not having a flawless experience with my Epson, either, if you bothered to read. Am I now defaming the Epson?
I posted MY experiences with the Panasonic, the Epson, and the company I purchased the Panasonic from. If you don't like it, well... I can't help you. But maybe you should read carefully over my posts. If you did, you'd understand. I didn't call out projectorpeople.com with no good reason. I maintain their staff need to be better trained so that they can give the customer the correct answer the first time and not "lead them to believe" other things...
I've been a member on these boards for years, have contributed thousands of hours of effort to many threads, and am not out to defame anyone. And please don't make faulty analogies.
Now, moving on. I'm quite interested to see how my Panasonic comes back. The Epson is bugging me a little after having spent some more time with it. While it's not "super noisy" or anything, it does have that certain high pitch that grates, the pixel grid on my screen is more prevalent, and because I've now been spoiled by the excellent input lag on the Panny, the Epson, while VERY good, just isn't as good, and I know it. If I hadn't had the Panasonic set up, I'd likely be very happy with the Epson's gaming prowess, but..... that's not the case.
