non-inverted ceiling mounted and swear I have a better picture now... just curios if that was your case

I used the same Peerless geared mount that everyone else used and had the PJ Inverted.

Then I bought the Chief LCDA230C and mounted the PJ in the Normal Position.

EVERYTHING WORKED BETTER.

This is what I noticed with projector upright ceiling mounted, fan not as noisy but the auto iris more noticeable
lcd alignment almost perfect & picture is better

The fact that the projector has issues with being mounted inverted reflects extremely poorly on the design of the product. We can praise Epson's customer service, but it seems like they are so good because they HAVE to be otherwise people would revolt. The projector's delicacy issues also explains why I have read so much about it crapping out in one way or another several months down the road. Then Epson sends you a refubished unit (because they have an infinite supply since they all crap out soon enough), and people are convinced they are happy again.

Hopefully having it mounted upright will stop me from seeing any refurbished ones ...

For those of you reading this forum, don't be afraid to buy this projector.

Thousands of satisfied customers and only a few dissatisfied. I think that is a pretty good record that Epson should be proud of.

well considering i just ordered this projector yesterday and i see people having problems makes me think i just entered into a 2k+ money pit. I take care of my electronics and i dont want someone elses refurbished junk. Now as far as hanging it inverted, never owning a projector, it never crossed my mind that it should make a difference. I just dont know if i like the big shelf that it has to sit on to be facing on its feet.

I would NOT say that.

Epson has the BEST 3D PJ at this price point.

Epson Quality Control is NOT the BEST.

However - Epson Support is the BEST if you do have a problem.

Mine is PERFECT and has been that way for as long as I have
owned it - aka - Day-One.

So the recent discussion is that an inverted project can possibly lead to issues that might not be experienced if left standing on its feet?

As far as I was concerned I was hoping to just throw this thing up on the ceiling and not have to tweak anything other that offsets - I shouldnt need to deal with any convergence issues, correct? If that was the case, maybe buying a 80" tv would have been less a hassle, but the 110" is going to be sweet i hope when i hook this thing up.

It never crossed your mind because it SHOULDN'T make a difference. Hopefully they can fix that with next years models.

All I can say if I could have the 3000.00 back that I paid for this Epson 5020ube to buy another
brand or model I still would buy Epson the same or the 6020 and if you don't have your
screen or projector parallel you will have focus problems

So what types of things should i look for with an inverted projector, that show signs or issues?

MANY people have NOT HAD PROBLEMS INVERTED. I would not expect any.

It most likely will WORK fine - but the PJ Alignment to the SCREEN is CRITICAL.
post #946 of 1270
I just hope they have better quality control with the next models. I'm ok with dropping 3k on a projector only if its reliable as well. I spent 1k on my 720p Mitsubishi 1000u 6 years ago, had it for about 4 years with around 2,500 hours on the lamp and it still looked great without any issues when I sold it. You shouldn't have to worry about a projector crapping out within 2 years.

what is the easiest way to align the projector up. As i stated, i planned on maybe putting up the screen after, but i really dont have much wiggle room so it might not matter. You can see the wall in my signature.

HERE'S a thread with some good tips.

Great looking theater build!
post #949 of 1270
wow not sure i can swallow all the talk on the mounting methods (inverted or not) this for real?

im on my second unit with 3rd (and final) en-route to confirm convergence.. maybe i should pack it up for the HW30 after all .
post #950 of 1270
can i ask why your on so many units?
post #951 of 1270
Hey guys. A buddy of mine from Oklahoma recently went the projector route with his home theater and I recommended the Epson 5020. He's had it for a week now and said he noticed a blue speck on the picture, which is especially noticeable on a dark screen or background. He text me a couple pics of what he's seeing. He's already used some canned air on the lens and vents thinking it might be a dust blob or speck and still there. He also gently wiped the lens with a microfiber cloth. Still there.

Any recommendations I can have him try or is this a defect?

This post shows some pics of what it looks like. It's on a 3020 here, but you get the idea.

I have a question about watching 3D Blu-Rays.

I'm thinking of buying a 3D, Blu-Ray, DVD, Ultra-Violet combo pack. I have a friend who wants to split the cost.

If I only keep the 3D Blu-Ray, can I watch it in 2D format with the same Blu-Ray quality?

I am not an expert and I haven't experienced this before, but I'm guessing that's a bad pixel.

Hi guys
Only new to this machine I have the Epson EH-TW8100 which is aus model with a few differences
I'm having trouble with ghosting/cross talk in 3D especially back grounds being out of focus any tricks to eliminate this as its quite annoying I'm coming from a HD33 which had a brilliant & stable 3D image so it's a little dissapointing hoping its something I can get looking better with some of the options in menu
Thanks in advance

I got my 5020 up and running. I had a few questions

1) Do people cover their fixed screens with anything? Or just leave them be?

2) How about a surge protector for the ceiling outlet?

3) What type of RF remote are people using for hidden AV equipment

Don't cover your screen. Proudly display it like a piece of art.

I'm using a Harmony 900 for everything. Cable box, PS3, CD player, Denon receiver, projector, screen lighting, remote curtain, .. Works nicely. It takes a little time to set it up though. The screen is nice just as is.
