I bought my 5050 from Crutchfield on May 3rd and I just contacted them and they are processing a $300 refund to match the price drop.
Also 100% happy with the projector for me it is nice step up from my 5040, having the 18gb speed has made an improvement on my Xbox gaming as well.
They overall picture and HDR is just better. I was having to use Bright Cinema with my 5040 to get a decent brightness out of HDR but with the 5050, I am using Dynamic instead and very happy.

That means your source is up-scaling.

I'm on my 3rd unit, but at least I got a letter saying that the QA team inspected it before it was sent out.

The 5050 is a "new" model, but the 9400 has been out a while. Anyone else think this is a little bit of a quality control issue?
Epson customer service is first class. I had a couple of 5040's that failed due to power supply issues. Epson replaced my last 5040 with a 5050. My 5050 had a one-time issue powering on. Contacted Epson and they provided me with a 6050UB . I have been a customer for over twenty years because of that level of service and commitment from Epson. My grandfather always used to say take care of your customers or someone else will. Epson lives that old school motto. I agree that negative user experiences are magnified for any product on a forum that caters to those enthusiastic first adopters. My 6050 has been close to flawless for over a month at this point.

To me arrived 9400 (6050). Summary record.
What has changed compared to 9300:
1. HDR is most important. Just a song. Now you do not need conversion into SDR, moreover, tonemapping the EPSON for my taste better than what madvr outputs. To configure tonemapping is now possible under any sequence with only one controller, which is invoked by button on the remote. About sallow skin and dark picture it is now possible to forget as about a bad dream. The picture in HDR is simply stunning. Yesterday even looked "Aquaman" ). The stupidity of the film, of course, rolls over, but there's just UHD reference. Also, in HDR, you can now stay in the same color mode and lamp power as watching SDR (I have this "Digital cinema" and ECO) without sacrificing the black level for the sake of overall brightness.
2. The algorithm works 4K shift - the test with letters (1/2/4K) shows that the smallest font has become more legible than in 9300, just the text in the browser or on the desktop clearer, with the letters as if drawn with a brush - a kind of approach, but in the movie works fine.
3. The quality of optics has increased, which can be seen from the almost perfect uniformity of focus over the entire area of the screen and the absence of problems with the geometry (in 9300 one corner was always a little overwhelmed, and the upper/lower edge of the screen (depending on the orientation of the projector) is more "soap" than the opposite).
4. The projector became noticeably quieter in all modes - both the cooling system and the operation of the auto-iris.
5. Increased "sensitivity" of the IR port, no matter where I point the remote - the reaction is immediate.
6. Native contrast (at least "Malevich" when auto-iris is disabled) has not changed by eye, but ANSI has clearly grown - it became immediately obvious already when you turn on the projector, just in the picture on the desktop, perhaps also due to the micro-contrast of better definition. In General, the contrast impression similar to the good old Pioneer plasma 5080. No modern LCD is not able to give a picture of this quality, better - only OLED with a bunch of its problems, preserved in the current generation of matrices.
7. Changed the algorithm of the auto-iris - it has become more aggressive, but it is a plus and a minus. On the one hand on the "Malevich" it closes to completely black and quite smoothly, not in steps, as it was in the "high speed" at 9300, on the other mode "normal" has become virtually indistinguishable from the "high speed" - in both cases, the "pumping effect" on appearing and disappearing on a black background titles became obvious, 9300 in the "normal" mode on the credits it was not, but until the end of the diaphragm was not closed. However, in addition to the credits, the effect of "pumping" in the films does not appear in any way, the auto-iris works smoothly and imperceptibly, so I left it on.
8. There was a "video equalizer" that allows you to very accurately adjust the gray scale.
9. Finally made HDMI 18 gbps.
That's actually all. Draw your own conclusions. As for me, the company has released a worthy successor 6040/9300, improving it in almost all respects and maintaining a reasonable (former) price.

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.
5050 is the EH-TW8400
5050UB is the EH-TW8400W
6050 is the EH-TW9400
6050UB? is the EH-TW9400W

For those with fully light controlled rooms what is everybody using for screens? I am trying to plan out my room to hopefully start constructing my false wall within a couple weeks. Looking for input from those who have an AT screen and what gain your screen is and how far back your front row is, I am only planning on one row.

It would be great for a bunch of you with this projector to ring in on screens you are using with this Epson with pluses minuses and suggestions for size and gain, for light controlled space particularly.

It’s not that simple to recommend a screen as there is no “one size fits all” answer/solution/choice. Everyone’s environment, seating distance, screen size, screen material, and tastes, etc are all different. What works for others may not work for you. At this point, the most beneficial endeavor is to review the information in the screen threads to gain insight on the what and why of what others have done to understand how they might match your screen goals and objectives.

I’m currently using a QualGear 100” white fixed frame screen with a 1.1gain, throw distance is 3.08m (10’10”). It’s a completely light controlled room with black velour on walls and ceiling and though my carpet is grey I have a 8ft x 6ft black rug in front of the screen.

I am not looking for the "one screen fits all" answer. Screens have not really been discussed and I think it can be very helpful for somebody who wants to get this projector but can't demo one. But if somebody ended up with a very similar layout to myself I would take the info with a grain of salt but could atleast use it, knowing my own taste, and maybe save myself time and money making the right choice first. More info to help make a decision is always better... that's why this forum is so important

I bought mine on Amazon May 29, 2019. Price is now $100 cheaper. Just contacted Amazon - they apparently do not do any post-purchase price adjustments. No $100 refund. Darn.

Awesome projector, however!

I am thinking of’ getting a 5050. It seems vertical placement is an issue. According to the calculator on projector central it looks like it needs to align to the middle of the screen vertically. Is this true? Seems like it would be in the way and just sitting in a seat would present issues where you might block the image. How high are people mounting this? Was thinking of putting on shelf in back of room.

You can definitely mount it high on a shelf or on the ceiling. This is my 6050.

I have a smaller room, roughly 12x16 - I just got a 6050, the throw is about 12 ft and we sit around 11 ft from the screen. I have a DaLite 103” scope screen with the HD Progressive Perf screen at 1.1 gain. The image looks good though I do find I can see the perfs, especially if the scene is light in color. I have not spent any time calibrating, just using the digital cinema mode. My room is in the middle of the basement and there are no windows so it is very dark.

Just got my chief 4500. I don't need the pipe but I'm wondering if the piece it screws into on the mount with the key can be rotated if the screw is loosened. Mine appears to be shifted a bit.....

If the Epsons would do [email protected] i would buy one immediately.
Since i am also a gamer the low input lag is very nice, but i dont like native 24p content without FI. It´s too much judder for my taste.

Right now my only other option with low input lag, [email protected] and sub 3k€ would be a (used) JVC X5900/X7900.

Should i wait for new Epson projectors? Do you think the next projectors will have [email protected]? Do you expect new ones this year?

Can you not pick up new 5900/7900s for close to the price of the 6050?

I'am not a gamer so don't know what affect not having the FI on 4K gaming can have but on movies I actually don't have a problem with it.

Epson EH-TW9400 - QualGear Fixed Frame 100” - Sony x700 BRP & Panasonic 420 BRP - Sony 1080 AVR - IPL Acoustics M1TLs & IPL Acoustics AVC Pro Centre, Four KEF surrounds & 2 Sub boxes (10” Sub + 10” Passive Radiator)

I wouldnt use the FI for gaming, only for 24p content.

Its really hard to get new units of the 5900/7900 for a good price here in germany. Its sold out everywhere or the price is 4k+€ for the 7900.
The TW9400 is 2800€ here.

Did you make the panels or buy them. Looks great

Thank you. I bought them from Seymour at the same time I bought the screen. Displays an amazing image. The panels definitely improve percieved contrast. I always hated the black bars.

Wasn't there an update that allowed FI to work with 4K inputs?

My Room size is 10x12 and seating distance is 9ft from screen. Thinking of getting 5050UB after reading all the positive reviews. Can i use full wide zoom to setup 5050UB in this room size. My screen size will be 100 inch.

I have a very similar room in my basement. Do you find that that white bulkhead reflects light, and how do you deal with the noise coming from that HVAC vent and what I am assuming are the supply or return conduits within the bulkhead?

If you are viewing along the long distance then should be OK for 100". The calculator says the lens needs to be 10' back, which leaves 2' for the projector body.

Here is the link the Projector Central calculator in case you want to learn how to fish.

I have triple black velvet on the acoustic ceiling tiles all the way back to the bulkhead. The grid itself is also covered in black flocking self-adhering tape. Sides walls are also triple black velvet back to the main listening position. The rest of the room is covered in dark blue matte paint. The white bulkhead does not reflect back onto the screen as it is starts at 11 ft back from the screen. I actually feel it provides almost like a low level back lighting effect and increases perceived contrast. HVAC is noticeable only during really quiet scenes.
