I do feel that the image on the 6050 is a little sharper and has better contrast than the 5050 which provides I feel a little better Shadow details and slightly better spectral highlights. Epson really took care of me I did not pay for an upgrade to either of the two most recent projectors to grace my home theater. So I don't feel like I am trying to justify any money cuz I didn't spend any LOL. Even my wife noticed a huge difference between the 5040 and the 5050 and she said with the 6050 there are fine details in actors faces and set pieces that were not present with the 5050. I agree with that assessment. I am really Blown Away by the picture I get from the 6050 I have used Alaric settings so far and will probably try the ones from above as well. I will probably have this professionally calibrated as I did with my 5040 by Jeff Meier of Accucal AV.
Glad to hear you and yours can see the difference between the 2 models. I haven't seen the 5050 only have the 6050 and it's quite a step up from the previous 5040 model (TW9300 in oz)
So the white model in the US is the 5050? and that's wireless? (TW9400W in oz)
And the black model is the 6050 with the better lens? not wireless? (TW9400 in oz)
What I'm getting out of this projector puts a smile on my face every time I fire it up. And this is coming from a JVC owner who's had every model since the first one!
The HDR handling, the black levels, the ease of use, the brightness and the optics are sublime for a PJ under 10K. The remote and it's layout near perfect too. Optics only bested by the benq LK models, but they're not cinema projectors and cost 400% more.
This whole design by Epson just works. When everyone else was concentrating on the amount of pixels - one of the least important aspects, especially when those 4k images are shooting thru a sub 4k quality lens array (you no longer have a 4k projector if you don't have 4k visible pixels on screen, blurring and turning them to mush isn't an option, a 1080p projector with a good lens will always look better than a 4k projector with a bad lens imho) - Epson thinks ahead of the game by greatly improving what is already a tried and tested design. They must be laughing up their sleeves right about now.
Here's some GOT 1080p material on a 130 169 screen taken with crappy old phone camera. oh and not calibrated.
