    Default Projector decision


    Well I think I have my mind made up on the projector I want to replace my aging Panny AE900U with after the first of the year. After reading and more reading I have decided on the Epson Home Cinema 5010 unless someone can convince me otherwise. It looks to be one of the best bang for the bucks out there.

    Hi Jeff and Elwaylite,

    I work with Epson and have evaluated a large number of the 5010s and 6010s. They are probably the best projector for the price bar none. That has been the case since the PC7500 introduced several years ago.

    I would second that epson recommendation, panasonic PT-AE7000 also might be a good choice for home theaters...

    Same decision here, I went with the 6010 and in a complete dark room on Eco mode it has a better picture than my 65VT30.
