If it ain't broke, don't fix it.Right now I'm using BW in my family room. Wandering if the BW will work or look at something else. Here is a picture of my room. :help:
If i remember correctly, 3010 calibrated gives around 650 lumens.I can't find any numbers for the 5020 but the 3010 is plenty bright on my Elite Cinegray which is fairly close to BW™ in performance. I've even been thinking that I may paint my Cinegray in the spring with BW™ just because the 3010 is so bright. :scratch:
And that's eco mode I believe. Normal shoots out even more.If i remember correctly, 3010 calibrated gives around 650 lumens.
And I believe the 5010 had around 14fL (~392 lumens) on a 100" screen in eco mode (13fL in Dynamic 3D mode), while my 3010 is 23fL (~650 lumens) and 17fL respectively. Using these numbers from the elite projector calculator, you'd have around 20fL for eco mode. I haven't looked to see how the 5020 handles 3D mode yet. These numbers take into consideration about 500 hours on the bulb.I think with the 5020 it's just 169 lumens more then 5010.
