Do you think it would be possible to sell the wireless transmitter on eBay? I really don't need wireless either.After passing up on the last couple of 5040UBe projectors that came up, I bit the bullet on one this afternoon. I don't need the wireless video and was hoping to save $100 but I decided that it's still an awesome value at this price. I'll be replacing my decade-old Epson 8350 so I'm really looking forward to the upgrade.
I think it would be a tough sell. I assume that it can only be paired with this projector, so your potential buyers should already have one unless it's been lost or broken.[

That's my situation. I ordered Tuesday afternoon and it still shows "processing" and I haven't received a call yet. I might call the number that called me the other day and proactively "approve" the purchase.Anyone else still showing processing for the past two days? Thought it would've been shipped by now. Charge still pending on my credit card as well. A previous poster had gone through the same scenario and ended up getting cancelled on the third day.
The difference is well worth if for the better contrast/blacks and warranty IMO. It's not that much money.I'm thinking about just calling to cancel because I have someone looking to sell me their Epson 4000 for half the price of this 5040ube. I wonder if it's too late to get that started.
I just received a message back from a guy selling his Sony VPL-HW45 for the same price as the Epson 4000. Like you mentioned, the warranty plays a big role.I'm thinking about just calling to cancel because I have someone looking to sell me their Epson 4000 for half the price of this 5040ube.

I just called their customer service and had them check on the order. She said everything is fine and they don't need any additional verification. She said they're just waiting on a tracking number.Anyone else still showing processing for the past two days? Thought it would've been shipped by now. Charge still pending on my credit card as well.

So i guess the next one that are gonna go up for sell are gonna be your first 3I'm pretty let down with Epsons definition of factory refurbished.
I have three 5040UBs sitting on my kitchen table right now.
The first one looked great but was dusty in the bag when it arrived. The airfilter was brand new, but the bulb was not. I was able to know that by inspecting the lamp housing and seeing dust on it / plastic discoloration from the heat located on the black wall of plastic directly behind the lamp. They didn't clean out any of the dust in the passageways, they just slapped a new air filter in it and reset the system hours.
So going into the service menu (hold menu for 8 seconds, press escape twice, left right) I was shown 0 hours on the projector and 0 hours on the bulb.
Then I saw that it had dust on the LCD panels, a splotch was on it in black scenes. So I call Epson, they put a nice $1400 hold on my card and ship me another refurb. This one has as much if not more dust on it, 761 hours recorded on the projector and 0 on the bulb. But that was a lie, because the bulb was dusty and had the same tell tale mild burning of the plastic in the lamp housing. This one didn't have a dust spot but it was flickering.
So I call them back and ask them to define refurbished. I ask if they clean these projectors out, they said yes, then I explain I've gotten two that didn't get cleaned and both with issues. So they ship me a 3rd that... well you guessed it. New filter, but dusty internals and a used bulb. And fit and finish issues, the body has been opened and they didn't snap the plastic case back correctly. I haven't turned it on yet but I'm surprised that this counts as refurbishment. Am I out of line here?
I like the quality of the projected image very much, and the motorized controls are outstanding for the price. But man, I was hoping for it to be at least cleaned out. Or just let me know what the hours were so I can plan ahead.
So i guess the next one that are gonna go up for sell are gonna be your first 3
Well just order oneYeah. I was thinking of setting them to high altitude mode and pouring glitter in them so that they can't get sent out without a thorough cleaning. It wouldn't break them, but it would require them to get a complete teardown and clean out. What do you think??
Lucky you, mine was canceled due to mismatch of some kind (they are not specific, the list they provided has quite a few items on it). I use this card for online purchases for ages with no problem, maybe it's for better .. I want 5050UB.My 5040ube was just delivered and it looks brand new. Is there any test I should perform before I get this thing mounted?
