I have seen other 1080 units, but I did not see the PC 1080UB before ordering. Complaints on the AE2000 scared me out of ordering, but I know I am guniea pig for the Epson users. There were too many 1080 options coming out soon that caused me to pass over the Panny.
The reason I went with the new Pro UB sight unseen were the following:
1. Warranty 3 years (Epson will replace Pj on short notice).
2. Extra Bulb
4. AVS pricing!!!! Call them!!! Marc sent me the rebate form this morning. It was icing on the cake for an already excellent price.
5. Intrigued by the UltraBlack technology. This may just be marketing hype, but if Epson truly has this technology exclusively then it may be something to brag about. I will just be happy if its native contrast ratio approaches my ancient DLP.
This unit will be throwing onto a 92" Optoma Graywolf screen. I will probably be updating the screen sometime in this calendar year. Waves are issue with it and I want to go with a fixed frame screen to eliminate this.
