no, and i wasn't recommending either machine before anyone has a panic attack.
researching my purchases i read several reviews of these machines and several more. the epson is considered an entry level machine, whereas the panny is a mid-level machine. if you read phil hinton's review of the panny 3000 here you'll see it's a better projector just from it's specifications. that is of course based on a new machine and was reviewed nearly a year ago. so, as i said, the only concern would be the quality of the demo unit you are considering.
that is my answer to your question - "Which one would be better?" and only that question.
