Isn't the 5020 THX certified? If not don't forget to use a calibration disk. I used Disney WOW.

After a few weeks what are your thoughts? How is the 3d? What size screen are you using? I'm close to getting this projector myself and would like to hear you thoughts. Thanks.

after a few weeks watching movies with my 5020 i am loving it more and more each day.the thing is super sharp(with good sources like bluray,netflix etc).
awesome blacks. as the hour usage goes up the projector keeps getting better and better.convergence is not perfect but doesn't seem to affect picture quality that much.
i watched the first 10 minutes of a 3D movie and it was awesome.
i went from a 130" jamestown screen to a 120" elite ezframe.
love it
