that's awesome! My unit arrived in perfect condition and i got it mounted. Picture looks good out of the box so after calibration it should be even better. Looks like my day will be spent getting to know my new toy better! I'd anyone has some calibration settings to get the best picture and performance let me know. Thanks!My son just installed a 5040 refurbished from Epson and it is perfect! (So far)/forum/images/smilies/wink.gifHello everyone. I'm also looking into a 5040ub refurb on ebay as the motorized lens along with the long zoom ratio will fill out my 10' 2.35:1 screen nicely . I've seen them on eBay and thinking about purchasing one Saturday. Should i try and find one directly from epson or go with the purchase from eBay? After reading some of the posts here is it safe to say that epson may not do such a good job refurbishing these units???
