Epson Home Cinema 5010 vs 5020UB

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm considering buying the Epson Home Cinema 5010 which I found for $2,099 on projectorpeople.com However, I found out there is an identical one named 5020UB but with better specs. The 5020UB is $2,599. I need your help deciding if the $500 difference is worth it. Here are the links of the two projectors on ProjectorPeople.com

For the improvements in 3D, yes if you plan on using 3D alot. If your not planning on using that feature much, then the older model would be my vote. Remember your also getting 2 pair of rechargeable glasses with the newer model as well, about $200 value. The older model glasses from Epson are non-rechargeable. For the older model you can find a pair of Sony glasses for around $20, that are rechargeable. If you add in the price of the glasses, your paying about $300 more for the improvements in 3D, and slightly better black levels.

Bottom of the page compares the two. http://www.projectorreviews.com/epson/home-cinema-5020/competitors.php
