I’m quite happy with the 5040 but a bit irritated with the 10gbps limitation. I use a HD fury linker but want something a bit more future proof.
I did that very upgrade. My conclusion was that the Epson 10.2gbps limited bandwidth was the killer and I'd have otherwise kept it.
I was happy with the Epson when I had my projector in a living room, but I recently bought a house and now have a dedicated room. In my experience the JVC is the better projector as there's much more perfection to squeeze out of and appreciate it. The gamma adjustments, black levels + 18gbps all make it what I'd consider the best quality projector for the price.
