Home Cinema 5020 Menus
The menu photos have been taken. This section will be finished in the first few days after the review posts.
I will say that Epson has done little to change the way their menus work in the last decade perhaps. Sure, there are more, and some different features (including "new" things like dynamic irises, and CFI), but the organization, and the "look and feel" remain unchanged. I really liked the Epson menus all the way back to when I started reviewing, and I haven't changed my mind. Overall, type is on the smaller side, but no problem, translucency of the menu is done well, there are two aesthetic choices for the menus color scheme. I used the default which is gray/black/white.
Below find almost all the major menus, as well as a number of sub-menus and other on screen displays.
Epson Home Cinema 5020 Lens Throw
As usual we report on the placement range to fill a 100 inch diagonal, 16:9 aspect ratio screen: The HC5020UB projector (measured from the front of the lens to the screen), can be as close as 9.8 feet or as far back as 20.9 feet. You can calculate distances for other screen sizes, by starting with those numbers. For example, if you are interested in a 120" diagonal screen, then multiply the 9.8 x 1.2 = 11.76 feet, and the furthest would be 20.9 x 1.2 = 25.08 feet.
