Unless your spending 2g for a 4K projector, people will be very disappointed in the quality of lower priced projectors. Much much better to simply buy a cheaper big screen.

This has been posted in other threads before, but you can usually watch this site: https://epson.ca/Clearance-Centre/Home- ... nt/c/cc301 and just get a refurbished one from Epson directly. Good prices, warranty, and frequently unused...I got a 5040UB from there for $1497, and it came with a new bulb, looked totally unused, works great. Stock and pricing change pretty frequently, some good deals to be had.,

A better deal in my mind is the Epson 3100 from Costco for $999. It's not marked as a sale price, but it's under their "going going gone" section (21 left) and used to be I think upwards of $1500 regular price, and would go on sale regularly for something like $1300. Also it compares well to the $800-850 price of similar models (3100/3700) @ Epson Refurbished, but is new and with Costco's return policy.

for those in the market for a "home cinema" projector, is the lack built-in speaker really a deal breaker? obviously the vast majority of people getting a projector for media/entertainment will already have (or plan on also buying) an adequate audio set-up as well.

No speaker, more expensive bulb.
1. Buy cheap, buy twice
2. Don’t buy because it’s cheap. Buy it when needed or it brings convenience/happiness/better quality in life
3. Buy now think (regret/return) later
4. If the gut says don’t tell your lady, don’t!

anyone use this outdoors? looking for something I can take outside for backyard movie nights. 2500 lumens seems to be the bare minimum recommendation if using outdoors

I got a Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 2040 got it for $519 the picture quality is amazing I can literally watch it with lights on this projector is the reason I'm not jumping to 4K I don't see a need for it.
With time, everything will go on sale...

A 65 inch 4K HDR TV at same price point will give you much better picture quality than this projector on a 100 inch screen. It's about expectations and if you don't watch 4K or HDR content then no biggie. Projectors need light controlled environments as well, quality of picture even in 1080p content will look better on TV compared to this Low end projector.

How close are people sitting to their projection screen? 120 inch screen is big but honestly so is a 65 inch if you are 6 or less feet from it.

120 inch is 120 inch ... I mean, I don't think I can say let me put my phone's screen 20cm from my eyes and it's the same as watching a movie in a theater.

And yes it is true, you need to have a light controlled room, you need a sound system because projector speakers suck ... projectors aren't for everyone, but it is the closest thing you can get to a theatre experience at home.

I have the same model projector; got it refurb for around the same price. 100% agree that picture quality is solid even in a bright room. You can easily find a good quality projector after a bit of research.

If you can find an Epson 5040UB on clearance - that's a really good projector. It even has focus adjustment on the remote. I think Epson was selling refurbs for approx $1400.

Wrong and more wrong, you clearly have not used any of these.

This is a better example of what not to get. $1200 for 1300 lumens and DLP(colors not as bright as 3LCD)

I'm sorry but this just isn't true. There is quality and quantity. I sit 6ft from a 65 inch OLED HDR 120Hz display and it's big and beautiful. It's about what fills your field of view which depends on the screen size and the distance your eyes are from it.

I have a 4k OLED and still use my 1080p optoma more frequently. Epson 2100 is not low end by any means. I'm not going to argue with you because I'm pretty certain you don't know what you're talking about. Good day
