Sony ES45 or Epson 5030

Hi Everyone
I am getting ready to purchase either one of these projectors. My preferences is a bright sharp picture. I always put my TVs on dynamic settings. The projector is 14 feet away from a 120 inch Jamestown Acoustic Home Theater Screen in the basement. The ceiling is white and the walls light gray.For the most part the lights will be off. Both of these projectors seem very good but i was wondering if the Epson is much brighter. Hope some of you can give me your advice.

Thank you

I think you need to look at calibrated lumens to get a better idea on brightness. I believe if you look at that category the 45es is a little better over the 5030. I have white ceilings and gray walls and the 45es is working out great for me.
