  1. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    I know it has been discussed multiple times here, but I still cannot make up my mind. Currently have Optoma HD70, but want a projector with a full 1080P and also something brighter. I have a dedicated room, the projector is ceiling mounted and projector placement is not a problem for me, have...
  2. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    Found a great deal on a leftover 5010 and was wondering how much I'm losing to the newer projectors? Keep in mind I do not care about 3D at all. Probably will never ever use it. I'd be using around 100" screen or so and would occasionally use during day for say sport watching as I don't have a...

  4. HDTV Recorders
    I'm running an epson 5020UB, homeworx 150pvr version v14 running hdmi to onkyo receiver,, then hdmi to epson. The video signal goes black as if projector does not see a video (like when you switch from one source to another), the audio into the receiver does not stop. I moved from 1080i to...

    very happy Epson 5020ub owner. I've already put over 400hrs on my projector. Is there a consensus best place to buy replacement lamps/bulbs? I know I have time, but I thought it bet to ask early. I see ebay has lots of -E type, OEM equivalent lamps for very cheap, but those make me nervous...
  6. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    I own a Sony VPL HW 51 projector which is exhibiting a blue light leakage issue. Any one experienced this issue and is there a fix ? The light first appeared at the bottom of the screen and now it's slowly creeping up to the left side of the screen. The degradation is rapid, so I need to find...

    I'm in the process of finishing my basement which includes a multipurpose room I want to put a projector in. The room is about 18'L x 15'W, and is more of an "open" room which will include a sectional sofa for seating. The projector will be used for TV/sports viewing, video games and movies...

    It has been a while since I have posted here but I lurk a lot. I am finishing out my basement and decided on a projector. I had settled on the JVC DLA-X35 based on the excellent reviews and 2D performance. However, yesterday I got an offer that has but some doubt on my decision. My local...

     Hello All,   I am new to projectors and planning on purchasing one of Epsons top-rated home cinema projectors, but I can't decide which one to get.

  12. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    Hi Everyone, I just purchased my first projector set-up and wanted to get advice on an optimal mounting solution for image quality. I previously was using a pioneer 151 FD display (the 60 inch Elite Kuro) with matching elite SC-37 receiver, blu-ray play and definitive technology super towers...
  13. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    I've seen no mention of the side-by-side feature in this year's new releases like the 2030, and the 5030UB. Is it gone for good? It's one of the must-have features for me - two equal side by side images, not PiP. It's intended use is for gaming. Can anyone shed some light on this, please. Does...

    Hi AVS-folks, I am currently in the middle of getting a jamestown AT screen, fixed screen- about 100inches. The seating will be around 10 ft from screen, I am planning to black out the 2 windows, so it should be pretty dark in the room. Lately there's some good deals out there with the new...
  16. 3D Tech Talk
    I'm trying to choose a projector between the Panasonic PT-AE8000U and Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 5020UB. The Panny has IR 3d and the Epson had RF 3d. Does anyone have any personal experience between the IR and RF versions of 3d?
  17. Home Theater Gaming
    I am deciding between 2 projectors. The epson 5020ub and the panasonic ae8000. The epson has a lag of 50ms in gaming mode and the ae8000 has 34ms. Will I see I difference? The epson has slightly better image quality, so I'm leaning towards that. I do light gaming, halo and games like that. I...
  18. Screens
    I'm completely new to home theater projectors and screens, and I really need help selecting my screen. I was looking at the elite screens ezframe 100" in white. Why I'm not sure about that is my basement, where the projector is going, has no windows but I would like to be able to use it while...
  19. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    I'm new to the whole projector scene and I'm looking for a bit of advice. My target budget for setting up a projector was about $2,000 and flexing up to $2500 if a great deal came along. My plan was to wait and see how Black Friday goes and hope to get a good deal on a Epson 5020 since they're...
  20. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    I just completed finishing my basement and am looking to put in a home theater system. I have been looking at the Epson 5020 projectors because of the contrast ratio. The projector will be located 15' from the screen and the viewing distance will be approx. 12'-6" from the screen. I would like...
