Long time projector owner here, will pass along some advice in general:

Contrast Ratios are always implied and will vary dramatically depending on how dark your room gets and how reflective everything is inside of that room. Light Control *is a must*. You also generally want a screen, projecting on a standard house wall with flat or semi-gloss paint will not be ideal but, you know, its functional. You can get a cheap grey screen (material only, sold cheap in various sizes on ebay) and give that a go, I'd recommend a greyish screen to help enhance the blacks that may get a little washed out on these inexpensive LCD based projectors.

Having said that, $400 for a 1080p projector is amazing, thats what replacement bulbs used to cost.
Optoma is a well known, established brand name. Look at each model and make sure you get one designed for home theater use (better image quality, punchy colors and black levels) versus industrial/classroom models (those tend to be brighter, while sacrificing contrast ratio and color accuracy).

The one thing you want to avoid with projectors is turning them on and off like TV's. Bulbs generally fail when you spark them, particularly when you do it if they are still warm. A good habit with PJ's is to turn them on and just leave them on, I routinely turn mine on for 10+ hour stretches, rather than turn it on/off, on/off several times a day....I've never blown a bulb (4 projectors over a decade)...they just get dim or start to flicker when they reach their end of life (2000-5000 hours in my case) and then you replace them.

or you get a new $400 projector depending on how often you use yours.

Also worth mentioning: 4K is not native on most projectors under $5000 and you can forget "real HDR" on any projector, even the $5000+ ones...1080p even at 120" is *FINE* for gaming/movie watching, 4K is of course better..even simulated...but you're not getting that for $500 yet.

HDR requires intense light output in specific regions of the panel and Projectors do not really operate like that, so even PJ's that cost $10k, $15k have dubious HDR light output numbers so just go in with your eyes open if you see HDR on any PJ and you're expecting the image to make you wince on bright scenes like a back-panel-lit LED or OLED might.
2150 has been great for me for 2 years. 100 inches on a white wall. Will never go back to TV again
I'm no expert in this field either. I would be concerned about the amount of usage on the bulb, however. Many things I don't mind refurbished. A projector definitely would be something I would be wary of.

Optoma HD brand new in the same price range is another great option. Amazing picture quality.

Is this a good option for outdoors? Have not researched projectors in a long time but I remember that people always looked for 3000+ lumens for outdoors.

It's a decent deal. You get the 2 year warranty, it's $150 cheaper than buying new. Even if there are a few hours on the lamp, they're among the cheapest to replace.

EDIT: Both this and the near identical 2150 are plenty bright, no worries there.

newbie in the projector and home theater set up. so please be gentle on me.. question is, I am seeing a lot of good reviews about vankyo full hd projectors in amazon and it comes almost 3/4 of this price for new ones and covered by warranty. do you guys think that those are better than the epson refurbished ones?

Same for me! I love my 2150. Used it outdoors the first year, then moved it inside and swear by projectors now.

I game on it, very good response time for a projector. I have it hooked up to a receiver and sound system, along with a ps4, xbox one, switch, Wii U, and gaming pc. It is a dream playing on it.

It is $549 new at Walmart for a new one but some stores show them on clearance at $169 so check Brickseek first.
