Good evening,

I am having some trouble finishing insulation in my home theater space. I'm not sure when I'll get it done, and therefore get the room done so that I'll be ready to fill it with equipment. We can hope for the next month or so but who knows.

My question is should I spring now for a projector or wait until I'm actually ready to install it?

I am interested in the epson 5010 because it seems to be discounted relative to the incoming model. I am also watching the benq w7000 but no one seems to be discounting it specifically for this weekend and I think I can find it around $1800 typically.

Should I buy now and have it sit in the basement until we're ready to put it up? I feel nervous about not getting it now and "getting stuck" paying for 5020 later when these aren't available or buying now only to see it heavily discounted before/after Christmas...

What would avs-ers do?

oh also, has anyone heard of a w7000 update model for 2013?

This is the $3k and up forum, are those PJs you r looking at in this class of expectations?

Like others have said countless times, the warranty starts upon pick up.

Both have an MSRP at or above $3000. Go with the Epson and be happy. Unless you're willing to spend roughly double you aren't going to find anything nicer.

Wait until you are ready to install it. There will always be deals to be had. Especially here at AVS !! wink.gif

Thanks for your replies.

It's a bit of a relief to hear that. I will hold out and focus on practical room-finishing matters. It's just fun to fantasize and see if there are any special reductions out there. ugh. I've already picked out some audio special deal that may or may not still be available by the time we're ready. Will wipe up the drool and put on the work gloves!

As for is this the right forum, this is where folks post questions about the epson 5020 and home of the benq w7000 owners thread, so I thought this would fit in. Oddly the more expensive official 5010 owners thread is "where it belongs" in the 3000 and under forum...
