The PowerLite Home Cinema 5020UB 3D 1080p 3LCD Projector by Epson is the answer to home theater blahs. It features 2400 lumens of brightness on both the color and white scale, Epson's 3LCD 3-chip technology for brighter colors, and Full HD 1080p output.

With full 3D capabilities and 1920 x 1080 resolution per panel (for a total color output of 2,073,600 pixels), this projector is not kidding around when it comes to high-resolution output. The native 1080p resolution and native aspect ratio can be resized to 16:10 or 4:3 for standard TV viewing, and can receive composite NTSC / NTSC4.43 / PAL / M-PAL / N-PAL / PAL60 and SECAM signals. It is also capable of component input at 480i / 576i / 480p / 576p / 720p / 1080i and 1080p.

As if the 3D-ready projector wasn't enough, it also emulates 2D-to-3D technology which lets you transform 2D movies into 3D. This projector also includes two pairs of RF 3D glasses with rechargeable 40 hour batteries so your 3D enjoyment can go on for hours. You can hook up DVD and Blu-Ray players, Apple TV, game consoles and other entertainment devices to the multiple terminals on the unit. HDMI, VGA, Component and Composite terminals ensure compatibility with almost any monitor or home entertainment system.

The projected distance of 30-300" and throw ratio of 1.34-2.87 means that the projector can be used in almost any room setup. The f2.0-3.17 manual focus lens with a focal length of 22.5 mm - 47.2 mm and zoom ratio of 2.1x ensures crisp clarity at any distance up to 300".

        The Epson 5020UB Best Bang for the Bux

        By Vapourizer

        from Berkeley, California

        About Me Movie Enthusiast, Tech Savvy

        Pros

        • Easy To Set Up
        • Energy Efficient
        • Good Remote
        • Intuitive Controls
        • The Zoom Is Nirvana

          Comments about Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 5020UB 3D 1080p 3LCD Projector:

          We have a small 65 seat theatre, showing indie films
          and multi media. After researching numerous projectors
          over the last few months, we decided on the Epson 5020UB.

          Out of the box this projector has been performing flawlessly. We're using Bluerigger HDMI cables, long throw 50ft, to a Samsung BluRay player. The results are simply amazing for the price point.
          Of note are the ease of controls and in particular,
          the zoom range. The zoom allows for max flexibility in positioning the projector, ours is mounted with a custom ceiling mount/platform, as our ceilings are 16ft tall. Contrary to other comments, the 5020UB is really quiet, compared to our old Sharp unit.

          Keystone, hor. & vert. adjustments are a breeze.
          The modes for viewing also allow for a range suited
          to the users specific needs.

          We're very pleased at this point, knowing full well the 5030 will be out shortly.
          Best Bang for the Bux as far as we're concerned,
          and our audiences have been mesmerized by the image quality. For a small venue, this unit won't disappoint.
          B + H got the unit to us in record time for our Film Festival, they are the best, period.

            Comments about Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 5020UB 3D 1080p 3LCD Projector:

            I went with this model versus the 3020 because of the added features and higher contrast. I live in an apartment and have blinds on one side of the room which keep it bright during the day even when closed. I am still able to watch my favorite movies and shows anytime I want and not worry about being able to see the screen. 3D looks amazing at night in a darker setting. I can only imagine the improvement in quality if I had an actual media room and not just the living room in an open apartment.

            Really big size project but great picture quality and color.

            It would be perfect, if it has autofocus and auto screen resize feature.
