PowerLite Home Cinema 5020UBe 3D 1080p 3LCD Projector
Beyond My Expectations
I recently purchased the 5020UBE from Cruchfield and I'm blown away by the quality. The brightness is real strong during the day, the colors are rich and the clarity is amazing. This model is the perfect "sweet spot" between the variety of manufactureres that produce the low budget models priced around $1500 and the super high end models priced at $8k and above. A system like this would have cost over $20k just 5 years ago. I'm very happy I spent the extra few hundred bucks for the wireless HDMI feature that comes with this model. It saved me lots of time and money required to send wires through the walls and ceiling. I've spent countless hours researching every model from every manufacturer. This model delivers the biggest bang for your buck, so don't waste your time trying to better deal this model. I rarely ever write reviews on anything because I'm too lazy, but I'm so impressed with the Epson 5020UBe that I had to let others know.

I had reservations with this purchase due to the fact that 2400 lumens specs on the epson is substantially lower than the DLP projectors i have used previously.
once engaging the 5020, i was immediately impressed; without any adjustments, the color was incredible, the brightness exceeded the 4500 lumen DLP projectors previously used.
I have had the unit for aprox. 5 months and still impressed with the image with every engagement. not find it necessary to utilize blue ray disk-its that good.
only negative is warm-up time; takes much longer than other units.
Also need to complement their service, had initial trouble with wireless transmitter "handshaking" and customer service quickly replaced it.

This is my first projector and at the top of my budget but well worth it. I am very happy with it. Has great brightness and contrast. I haven't tried the 3D yet.

Exellent , We are enjoying it like any thing.....I think EPSON should have given more details about the settings and all . but you will figure out the hard way.. Nice quality picture. Sound is not included in this series. Very quiet projector.... it's my dream projector and worth each penny.. :)

Awesome picture, easy setup, a few wishes
quite an amazing picture and set of features.
The wireless is awesome, but takes a while to connect when you switch sources.
The one thing that was a BIG disappointment is that the wireless will only send the signal to the projector *or* the HDMI out, but *not* both. So how are you supposed to get sound from the HDMI you select into your sound system?!?!?! The manual is completely silent on this!
So I had to use my own switcher which has an audio out. So I couldn't use their switcher at all.
The second big problem was that when my samsung DVD player connected to the project, it didn't output most of the audio channels. Unplug the projector from the end of the HDMI cable and the audio via HDMI worked fine. So I think the project must tell the DVD player that it doesn't do sound. I was unable to figure this out so I just took the RCA jacks off the DVD player.
Worked just fine from sound from my ROKU 3.
