Not for games. I use mine quite a bit with the XBox One and PS4.
What I meant in my earlier post is that turning fast on and off is kind of a pain - it's buried in the settings menu, applies across all presets, and can't be saved to a custom user setting. So you pretty much have to dig through like 5 button presses each time. You also need to insure FI and other extra post-processing features are all off as well, though in the case of those you can save them to your own preset. The way I have it set for my Harmony is, I configured a preset that has the colors, brightness, etc I like for games with all the post processing off, then I set up a separate Harmony page that takes me through the Epson menu to turn Fine off and on.
It's a minor nitpick, I know, but there are other projectors that handle this aspect - gaming - better. So if you want to mostly game with your PJ then I'd pick another. The AE8000u gets down to 22ms and you can save every setting you need to one button press/Harmony macro.
But if you want the 5030ub for it's superior image/3D/etc then go with it, 37ms isn't bad at all for all but the most hardcore FPS players (and really, if you are one of those you aren't going to be happy with any PJ) and it's really not THAT big a deal to flip it on and off. Life is full of tradeoffs and this is definitely a first-world problem
