Are any other Canadians as ticked off as I am the street price in Canada is $4799? Does Epson usually drop after a certain time? I thought it would be closer to $3600 which would stretch my budget but I got my wife’s OK. If I’m going to spend nearly $5k I may as well look for a sale on a Sony.

They are cheaper than that at Eastporters.

No sales tax for me at projectorscreen (which I will totally report when filing my taxes next year) so that saved me another $250

Is projectorscreen.com legit? Authorized dealer? How much does that matter?

Anyone know if BestBuy will price match projectorscreen.com?

According to the website, besides local retailers, these are the online retailers they match "Amazon.com, Crutchfield.com, Dell.com, HP.com, Newegg.com, and TigerDirect.com"

Thank you. I see that now. Hoping there is a $2500 sale coming soon somewhere. Ready to pull the trigger but it would be nice to use my BB card at 0% interest for 24 months.

BB will not PM online with that company - I tried. Maybe in store you can get them to do it if you are lucky.

And if a deal hits for $2500 I am buying instantly

FYI...... projectorscreen.com just upped their price from $2,799 to $2,999 in the last hour or so.

For those who offered this through projectorscreen, have you had a shipment yet. Mine has said Fulfillment stage since Sunday and here’s what they said when I contacted them.
“We are expecting our stock next week and it ships out within 24 hours of receiving There was 2 in stock, and many many orders all in the space of the weekend when inventory could not be updated/reflected on the site. I apologize for this.”
Anyone been lucky so far?

Another sale for $2,799. Kind of odd how these have popped up on sale at different retailers for a only a day or two at a time....

The PC Richards price is back to $3k, but Amazon now lists it at $2799.99. Hurry up, price matchers!

I just ordered mine from Parker Gwen. $2672.10 using 10% off code. Excellent deal.

In fact, I wouldnt be surprised if this was the cheapest deal posted thus far.....

You'd have to email them and ask. Mine arrived a day before they said it would. Arrived in perfect, brand new condition as expected. No problems. A seriously good deal.

Don't think the 10% off code is going on anymore, so now it's back up to $2999.

It's back to $2699 everywhere. I wonder when we'll start to see even bigger discounts...

It's been stuck at 2799 now for a month or longer. I wonder if they're saving up a bigger discount for Black Friday? Was hoping for something sooner, argh.

I am still rolling an Epson 5030ub. I havn't really payed attention to what's new lately but starting to get the itch and wondering if I can get into decent 4k in a projector for around the 2500/3000 range? How does the 5050ub stack up compared to the 5030? is it a good upgrade? I'm guessing it would be a significant upgrade. Wonder if I could sell the 5030 to get some savings back on a newer PJ?

Thanks in advance.

Does Epson do Black Friday deals? I looked back previous Black Friday deals for Epson projectors in the forum but I did not find much. Is Epson mostly sticking to their MSRP until a new model comes up?

I would love to know that too since I'm debating between the 4010 (though a little long in the tooth) and the 5050 since I need motorized lens memory for my upcoming 2.35:1 screen.

Listen up, studios! Dolby Atmos Lite™ print-outs must stop!!
