Thanks, I was looking at that one too. The mounting holes fit fine for the projector? Is it easy to release it too from the mount?I'm using this one, its probably not as good a a chief, but it gets the job done. Got it on amazon.

Keep us posted. I was all set to order but am rethinking based on your post. It does look like their customer service is top notch though!I just got mine yesterday... didn't get a good one. The menu screen says the bulb has 0 hours on it, but there's no way. My old Epson 8350 with over 2500 hours on it is still brighter. Worse, there is dust or something on the bulb, the picture has multiple bright spots that are really noticeable in dark scenes and a few of the spots you can see even in brighter ones as well. I will be contacting them to return today. Cosmetically, there is a scratch in the plastic by the front lens, and on the side of the unit. Doesn't affect performance, but just thought I'd mention that these refurb'd units are not always going to be new stock where they fixed the power issue, this one was clearly used and installed, and even though it says the bulb has 0 hours on it, I'm guessing it probably has at least 2k hours on it, probably more like 3-4k, as it's a lot dimmer than my 8350.
Watched Captain Marvel (4k disc) with my Pioneer UDP-LX500, and I was hoping to be blown away by an increase in PQ, but this unit didn't live up to my expectations, and even after some calibrating, could see jagged edges when paused. Wasn't able to get rid of them completely, even with sharpness and other settings turned down or off. Hope I get a good one next time, as this unit I thought would be a significant jump in picture quality over the 8350, but so far, it's been a let down.
EDIT: Called Epson this morning, they said they will email me a Fedex return label and they'll be sending a replacement projector to arrive in 2-3 business days.

Man, you guys have like playing Russian roulette on these "the psu is gonna fail soon" refurbs.
That's a huge inticing price, but no way I'd risk it with the history of these things just going completely dead on people (think "after the warranty ends" scenarios).
Best of luck to everyone playing the game though.
Stopgap for me as well as my extremely old 1080p projector is going out on me and I want a decently priced upgrade.I will.
The refurb'd units get the same 2 yr warranty as a new one, so if it makes it that long, I'm good, as I will probably replace with a true 4k projector then, this was just a stopgap until more models arrive and pricing comes down even more in the next few years. I've had an 8350 ever since they first came out, and a 5020, and both have been fantastic.
No clue. My 5040ub seems ok. I have not tested it yet besides turning it on, but it had 0 lamp hours too. The only wall I have to use now has my TV, so I cant see much anyway because the tv is in the way. I am coming from a benq w500, a 10+ year old 720p projector. When I turned it on it was so bright and cool lookingHmm...
I'm kinda getting lured in on this...even though I don't want to.
I could sell of my 1 year old Epson 4000 for at least what this refurb 5040 is selling for...worth it? Should be a good contrast jump, right?
Link doesnt workI have this mount, works great and makes switching projectors about as easy as it can be.
