I felt the exact same way. IMO the uneven sound is from the chassis design, it's very hollow and cheap build. If you hold it in different ways the sound changes. I've been able to get mine to a fairly consistent noise in ECO now after many adjustments.davidm wrote: ↑Jan 26th, 2016 12:00 pmGot mine today. I'm in hyper-critical mode, and was close to it (though installed it may be over my head which is similar), but it's noisier than I expected, in eco mode with no iris. I'm wondering if it's 'normal' since it's an uneven sound, which is distracting.
I can't really blame epson for this, it's designed as a portable unit so lightweight took priority over build quality. The picture quality is the best part about it.
I've played racing and batman games on it and I don't see any perceptible lag at all.
FYI - If any one is looking for an LCD projo even cheaper and willing to get a refurb.. epson has some clearance stuff available with free shipping:
The 730HD for $375 seems like the best value for a 720p model. They have a 2030 as well for $639, which is a highly rated 1080p from 2013, but apparently the new 2015s have a lot quicker response time for gaming.
