Epson 5010 / 5020 Two Tone Wht / Black - an eyesore?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm considering the Epson 5020 for my dedicated theater with an all-black ceiling, but I'm thinking it will be an eyesore with the lights on. Am I wrong?
My current projector is generally invisible as it is black. I can't see paying the 6020 upcharge to get the black trim, even with the extra stuff. Is the white casing easily enough removed in order for me to paint it?

Looks to me you have 3 options:

1. get the 6020
2. live with white 5020
3. void warranty with painted 5020

4. build a vented enclosure to hide it

Thanks, I have a vented enclosure already, I'll probably have to enlarge it a bit but that won't be too big a deal. I'm also considering the PT-AE8000U, with it I could stick to the original plan of ditching the enclosure.

I bought the 5020 and it works a lot better than it looks!
