Among one of the brighter, no pun intended - OK, yes it was!) moments of CEDIA occurred when we witnessed the demo of Epson's new Pro Cinema 6010. This is Epson's newest Pro model (which means it comes in black and is sold through traditional dealers only). The new projector replaces the Pro Cinema 9700UB (currently our reference projector). As you'd come to expect from Epson, the new 6010 comes with a full 3-year service warranty (and there is no limit on hours of use) and that warranty service includes advance replacement (typically within 48 hours from Epson to the client). Like all Epson Pro models the price includes a spare lamp, Chief ceiling mount (this is a new mount style), and a plastic rear cable cover to dress up the connections. New for 2011's Pro Cinema 6010 is the inclusion of 2 pairs active shutter glasses... that's right, the Pro Cinema 6010 is fully 3D compatible.

Can't wait--Looks like Epson has come through big time to equal the performance of the 8500/8700.

I have plans on buying the 5010e if reviews are possitive. My Sanyo Z4 has about 9000 hours on it. Over 3000 on this bulb.

Epson 6010 3D 1080p projector: I just bought one two weeks ago. When it works, it is fabulous. Just great. AMAZINGLY GOOD. WHEN it works.
It has problems powering up. It gets stuck in half-booted mode: the lamp is on but not fully on and nothing changes that. No menus, no signal, nothing. After half an hour of trying, I can usually get it to boot up. The problem may be about temperature: I suspect the machine doesn't like it when the room is not very warm.
Epson told me they were shipping a new one to me, but it did not arrive. I finally called them after waiting all day, and they told me that they were out of stock. My beef is not that the machine is faulty, or that they were out of stock (things happen). My beef is that they did not contact me to tell me this, and when i complained about that, they said that the warranty department is not in touch with tech support. Finally, now, they are being more communicative. But they are still out of stock for another week.
If their service improves and if the problem is not endemic to the machine, then I would have no hesitation in recommending it.
Just got my epson 5010 set up a couple of weeks ago. I LOVE it!!! I have control of almost all light where the screen is concerned, but even when the lights, that are 5ft from the screen, are on the picture is still pretty amazing. I watch a lot of tv on it, and it has as good if not better of a picture than my Samsung 1080p LCD tv, and for blu rays it is even better. The only thing I have watched in 3d on it so far is a 3d aquarium that was on sale at best buy, but the quality of that was AMAZING!! The only downside I have noticed is that the glasses for 3d viewing are $100 a piece. But for the price, I highly recommend the epson 5010/6010 projector for any type of use
I been looking for a epson 6010 projector but I get different prices. Can anyone recommend where I could the best price?
The 6010 is identical to the 5010 and should not be readily available as an 'online' purchase. So, you should see things closer to the MAP of that projector across the board. I would recommend you to get the 5010 instead of the 6010 if you want to start counting your pennies, or if your screen size is under 110", I would get the JVC RS45.
