The 3010 is a step up from the 8350 because it has 3D....although no lens shift.
The 480hz panels are the same as in the Panny 7000. If you want to find out how the Epson may fare in 3D (ghosting), check out the Panny 7000 thread: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1363959
The Epsons should be brighter.
