In the interest of not misleading anyone, I'm updating the title, product and the store. The original post is at the bottom. Note the first few comments were with regard to that model only.

There is now a newer model, available for pre-order on B&H for $900 (free shipping):

The newer one seems brighter (3200 vs 2200), has a low input lag of 5 ms, and high refresh rate of 240Hz (under 1080p) so it should be good for gamers. Now it is believed 701 has RGBW color wheel while the 728 has RGBRGB (so more accurate color but less bright).

This was my original post:


I wish I didn't get a used Epson (2150) just a couple of days ago. Even a decent entry level 4K projector new would still be worth the extra $400 I would have had to pay over an excellent 1080p one which 2150 is.

At that price, it's obviously a pixel shifted 4K (or really UHD) projector. Have to make this disclaimer so people don't come in with their real 4k vs faux 4k and UHD vs 4K arguments ;-).

P.S.: this is currently on back order so don't buy it if your Super Bowl party depends on it ;-).

UPDATE: I now do not recommend this projector unless you get a price. Please see below discussions about the newer models.

I'm SO confused! Is this (newer model) a good projector or not? Does it have 3D? Is it native 4K? Any suggestions?

I have it. No 3D but good 4K resolution.
