Doesn't mention on the product page anywhere, but will this accept video-out from a smartphone?

It has MHL support, so likely works with Android but iPhone is likely not going to work

Epson makes great projectors. I've been running mine for 4+ years now. Replaced the bulb after more than 4000 hours because it had noticeably dimmed (New one cost about $100 shipped.) It's still going strong, have considered selling it and getting a 4k model, but the 1080p is still great at 100-120 inches.

My only complaint is that the fan has gotten louder after a few years of use, but I can't hear it at all over the surround sound when watching movies. I only notice when I'm using it as a secondary monitor for my laptop and it's quiet.

I bought this projector for this amount about two years ago and it is absolutely fantastic. The speaker is actually not as good as the previous generation but it is serviceable.

Why aren't these things $200 by now? Seems like projectors haven't come down in price like the flat panels have.

When I bought my house (20 years ago) I wanted the front room for a pool table and a projector.... she said "Sure!". 20 years later... front room is filled with junk like a yard sale and I have no projector or pool table. And when I bring it up... nothing good happens.

I just love how so many people come to slickdeals to bitch about their spouse like it's a group therapy session.

Yes, you can get $200 projector, there are many nano projectors at that price.
And you can't just look at the price, you get way better and more features projector at the same price than years ago. This is universal true for any tech products.

Plan ahead.

Replacing them is easier than buying as new, as she can't see the benefit when it hasn't been there.

R u kidding??!! Today's $500 projectors r better than $2000 projectors 20 yrs ago. Just about anyone with a decent income can afford a great front projection experience today. Even those $150-$200 led bulb projectors all over amazon are decent enough for 90% of ppl.

I have Optoma HD141x. I do not see any rainbows. If you super rainbow sensitive (they are youtube test sites)...then you need to get LCD. But dont get HD143x...it uses a smaller chip which is inferior to the HD141x

But my DLP will smoke the Epson in contrast ratios and motion blur. To get the same contrast levels of DLP, you have to spend more on a high end Epson LCD and not these home models. Epson uses Iris to control contast levels which has it issues in terms of clicking sounds.

. The Epson home cinema series are for people looking for lots of lumens, not strong black levels.

The Epson 2150 will be even worse. You will have to step up to at least the Epson 5040 for acceptable black levels. Anything beneath the 5040ub will have weak black levels.

And take this from someone who loves the home cinema series for their high lumens and eye popping colors.


I would buy an DLP over LCD. That is because I have very good experiences with DLPs. However, either one will do for what you need. You also think ahead when buying an item like this. Plan for what you might use it in the future. Not just for what you need or want at the moment.

Get it from an expert: DLP and LCD Projector Technology Explained -- Project Point

https://superuser.com/questions/2...projectors


Quick Review of Disadvantages and Advantages of each... Reference
LCD Projectors: Strengths
- Richer color dynamics for better results in rooms with ample ambient light
- Draw less power
- Throw less heat
- No color filter wheel = No "rainbow effect"
- Slightly quieter Seemingly sharper image on data

DLP Projectors: Strengths
- Smoother video
- Smaller box
- Pixels far less visible, (although normally not an issue for business use)
- More "filmlike" on DVD and HDTV
- Generate "blacker" blacks - Higher contrast

LCD Projectors: Disadvantages
- More visible pixels
- Some screen door effect on certain video images
- Physically larger - Even for the same number of lumens
- Poorer contrast
- Blacks come out lighter gray than DLP projectors

DLP Projectors: Disadvantages
- Rainbow effect bothers some
- More moving parts (color filter wheel)
- Color filter wheel often produces soft but audible whine
- Poorer reds and yellows at full power
- Color saturation
- Need more lumens than LCD, for rich colors, when dealing with ambient light

Sounds like you're not sexing her good enough. Or you did something to make her unhappy. If she was happy in life, she wouldn't be filling the house with junk. She's trying to fill a void. I know from first hand experience.

In 99% of cases you have a dust build up in your projector, dust it, should improve the fan noise.

Technology has improved and price has come down a lot, when you compare the lowest end projectors now they are what would be the top teir projector 5-10 years ago.

Other reason they hold their values is because you can get a 100"+ screen for way cheaper and with similar quality to a high end TV.
