First off, I researched for months before purchasing a 3D projector. I had to decide between LCD and DLP, with LCD winning out. I found that, although I am not one of the approximately 10% that see a 'rainbow effect' with DLP, I was concerned that I would eventually have people over at some point that would be a member of that group.
I was also concerned because I play a lot of video games and heard negative feedback concerning that issue. I can say now that I have owned it for over 2 years that this is bad information. I have hosted a lot of gaming parties, with computer, XBox, and PS, and no one has had any issues either online or off. There has never been any lag during any game.
The 3D is superb, but it does depend on the movie being watched. I quickly learned that films that are filmed for 3D are far superior than those that were programmed to 3D after the fact. There is a lot of 'ghosting' in those films and there are sites that can help a person select the best for their viewing.
At the two year point of owning this projector, I started to develop a blue spot in the corner. I checked how long I had owned it and immediately felt that familiar "How do they time it to fail at the end of the warranty?" feeling. I got everything together and made the dreaded call to support with the goal of just finding out if this was a hardware or software issue, since I knew in my gut that they were going to squirm out of doing anything for me.
I was shocked to find out how amazing their support was. They reviewed my serial number and determined that I was still covered, it was hardware, and they would replace the unit. This unit had passed the 4000 hr mark for lamp hours and due for a new bulb that I had already purchased, so I was glad that it was getting replaced. They did ask for my credit card info, however, in case I did not return the unit.
As I waited for the unit to arrive, I had two worries. I have been through these scenarios before, so I fear the worst. My first worry was that I would get billed even after I send the unit back, and the second worry was that it was going to be a refurbished unit that would only last a month. I received the unit: it was refurbished, but it worked just like the first one brand new. I can now add, since this happened 6 months ago, that it is still going strong with over 1000 lamp hours on the new bulb that came with it. So now I have a spare $300 bulb for when/if this fails. My credit card bill was cleared as soon as they got the unit back and the whole transaction went very smoothly.
It is such a fantastic feeling when a company actually stands up for its product and takes care of their customers that I had to come back and right a review about how well treated I was. It is because of this that I will continue to purchase Epson products. I highly recommend that any reader of this review also purchase from them.
Now I have to find a way to link this to the 3020, since the 3010 is no longer sold. I want more people to know that they stand behind their products.
In 3D mode, the PJ uses the Dynamic 3D setting by default. Colors are not exact in Dynamic 3D, but pretty close. I also tried the Cinema 3D mode... colors are more accurate, but the image is not as bright as Dynamic 3D. Did not notice any ghosting with the supplied Epson 3D glasses. Note: Sony makes 3D glasses for the PS3... cost about $49. They work with this PJ since they adhere to the 3D standard for glasses. Epson glasses cost about $100 each. Calibrated lumens is approx 400. For my screen, that's 12 foot-lamberts. 3D spec states 4.5 foot-lamberts at the minimum. So when the bulb ages, even by 50%, the image still may be bright enough.
The PJ accepts 24p native signals (for DVD and Blu Ray) and will display the signals as 24p. There is a setting in the PJ that doubles (called 2-2 pull-down) the 24p so that the PJ displays signals at 48p. It is supposed to smooth out 24p sources by removing the judder.
Fan in eco mode is quiet. In 3D mode, using Dynamic 3D, the fan goes into high speed. I can hear the fan on high speed during very quiet scenes. But not during normal movie scenes. Besides, if the 3D movie does not suck, you probably won't notice the fan.
Overall, it's an excellent PJ.
Low cost of operation. 4000 hour bulb life, 5000 in eco mode. And as reported in most AV forums the bulbs can generally last even longer. Replacement bulbs when the time does eventually come are about 200 bucks. The 2 year warranty is the best in the business too.
The 3D is spectacular. "Ooohs" and "Aaahs" from everyone. And unlike a lot of 3D I've seen it's plenty bright. In fact I had to dial that brightness back as well. Properly calibrated the 3D is gorgeous and easy on the eyes. As reported by others the PS3 3D glasses work great and as far as I can tell are the best buy going right now: PlayStation 3 3D Glasses They fit my 8 year old's head too, where the Epsons did not.
Contrast and black levels are two things that most folks don't understand, and who's surprised with all the phony marketing numbers. 150,000 to 1, 250,000 to 1, etc. All of the manufacturers are full of crap. Let me just say that when you see the difference between this and an entry DLP projector you will know what I mean. If Epson wanted to sell more they need only set them up in stores running a dark movie like The Dark Night or Underworld, with a DLP projector running side-by-side. "Hey, the black on that DLP is actually grey! I'll take the Epson..." To be fair I've heard black levels on the Mitsubishi HC4000 and Optoma HD33 are pretty good too, but compared to my HC3800 it's a massive improvement. The auto-iris that helps reduce light output is the main reason why, and is completely silent in my theater room.
Installation was a breeze for me. From unboxing to dialed in on the ceiling took less than 20 minutes. Personally I can't imagine why anyone would spend more for motorized focus and lens shift, since it's something you'll really only use a few times during the life of a projector. I'll occasionally whip out a folding chair to save me a few thousand bucks!
Color accuracy likewise was pleasing. I've felt compelled to calibrate my last 3 displays: a Samsung plasma, an LG plasma, and my Mitsubishi projector. I could tell the colors were off and educated myself on how to fix it. Out of the box the Epson looks great. Other than drastically lowering the brightness I haven't touched it. Being a bit OCD I suspect I'll end up calibrating, but if you're one of those people that don't care to learn such things this projector is for you.
Rainbow free. I almost didn't even mention this, as I was completely satisfied with my DLP. But I would occasionally notice the rainbow, generally during opening/ending credits with white text on a black background. It was very subtle, and infrequent, and to be honest had I not known about the rainbow in advance I probably wouldn't have ever noticed it. And of the dozens of people who watched my projector only one reported rainbows, my 67 year old mother of all people! Didn't have a chance to test before I took my DLP down, but I think in her case the special glasses she wears for her astigmatism were the reason she could see rainbows.
Cons: Pretty bright on a sub 100" screen in a dark cinema room, so just know going in you'll have to ratchet it back quite a bit. Didn't impact me at all, but physically it's a lot bigger than the DLP projectors. The power button has an annoyingly bright blue LED. Some have complained that it's noisy (both the fan and the auto-iris), but I have experience neither. Unlike a DLP projector there is an air filter that will require occasional cleaning. For me that's more of a "pro" actually, as I had one incident of dirt inside my DLP that I had to fix with a can of compressed air.
