Lens shift is much better because you can mount the project off-center, above or below the screen. And use the horizontal and vertical dials to move the picture into position.Contrast Ratio (CR) determines how black you're blacks are and how much detail you see in darker scenes. The Epson 8350 and the 3020 all have contrast ratios between 40,000:1 - 50,000:1. In that range you get a very good picture with good detail. Also, between the two projectors you wouldn't notice a big difference in picture quality if you had them side by side. The higher end 5030 has a contrast ratio of 600,000:1, which is exceptional. With an Epson 5030 you'll notice certain details that you might not in the other two projectors.Lastly is picture adjustment.
