Still not happy with the 4030 I bought btw, I ended up receiving another unit (since the original had so many dust blobs, they were visible in dark scenes). Now, look at the panel uniformity, compared to my old 3020. for those who bought higher end units (like the 5025), how does this looks on yours?

I finally got around to checking the uniformity with a gray test pattern on my 5025ub. It looks decent:

I just realized these prices are all in USD?
Prices on epson.ca are in CAD. There is also a clearance center on the epson.com (US) site: prices there are in USD.

Very nice, will post my results when i receive my 5030UBe
Does that mean your 5030 has shipped? Congrats! I think you'll be very pleased, the black levels on the 5025 are amazing and from what I can tell the 5030 is nearly identical (with some theoretically additional brightness).

Yup 5030UBe is scheduled for delivery today. Hoping it'll be all good.

What would you recommend for a room that isn't very light controlled. Have a Benq HC1200, but can only really watch it when the sun goes down :(

Any of these in the $1500 range that would be much better in ambient light?

not really, those are not very bright, they are more tailored to a light controlled room (and they have excellent contrast).

you should look into the 3000 series for more light (3500, 3700, etc).

For the 4030, online is showing 0 - did you have to call?

Also, the listing doesn't mention any spare bulbs/mount that's included, but it does mention 2 pairs of 3D RF glasses?

they updated the listing, sadly. Now I guess it does not include the extras anymore :(

I think they still have one in stock, try to give them a call.
