What do you think, does it worth the change? Can sell my epson 1200 $ to a friend... so the RS-40 will cost 300 $.....

Since no one else has given their two cents I will... if you are happy with the Epson I can't see swapping with the RS40's track record and less than stellar 3D. Now if I could demo it and decide then perhaps... other wise unless I was simply looking for a change I'd pass. This from someone who hasn't demoed a Epson I could live with and currently has a RS45.

The original lamps do dim fairly quickly so if you decide to buy a new one make sure it the revision 003 lamp as the brightness will not dim anywhere near as fast as revision 001 and 002 lamps for this projector. I think you'll love the performance of the RS40 over the Epson. The native contrast ratio of these units can be addicting and should look great overall over an LCD based unit like your Epson.
