I'm reading that eco's got better color balance too.
Your major concern will be the black levels which aren't great, a gray screen will make a vast improvement. The problem with shimmer on bright areas is a problem, but I went from 100" white screen which was too big for the distance from the projector to a 92" white, but the black levels where annoying enough for me to order a gray 92" and was much happier even with the bright shimmer (appears like the screen is coated with diamond dust on bright areas of the screen, which I'm willing to accept for the improved black levels. I'm not willing to pay a large amount for a high quality screen at this time though). If you've got a choice between gray screens, I suggest a non-HC (High Contrast) version as the projector is plenty bright and you won't need it. I'm very satisfied with this projector itself. Had I to do it over, I might have gone with the additional $1k for the 5010e, but that would not be for anything to do with the brightness level or picture quality, which blew me away, but definitely go with a gray screen unless you can get the room completely black when watching...
