Thank you for posting @Oblix82, nice find, and welcome to HUKD
I too have been looking at projectors, trading off big screen with black levels, I cannot afford to spend big bucks so budget FHD is where I must look. The optima gt1080darbee is more expensive but is short throw, placing it around 1metre provides 100" but with lamps at £150-£220 and lasting 2000 hours, although more is claimed and perhaps an actual witness will respond, but based on a youtube review by Scan after 1000 hours the lamp is not as good...
it is competitive around £500 and hard for a thicko like me to figure it all out but thanks for posting more personal confusion

op THANK YOU was about to buy the eh-tw650.
Benq w1050 is only about 520 on amazon , and uses DLP, if you can live with "possible" rainbow effect, it may be a better bet.
Im sure the DLP projects have much better contrast than the LCD projectors
according to this vid, epsom 3lcd beats benq dlp

Just looking at replacement lamp for this model £62(?) seems much better value

Buy something way too bright for your needs then flip it into eco mode so the bulb lasts 5000+ hours. When the bulb does finally go it'll be time to replace the whole projector with a 4k model.

Yes the bulbs do age but since it's gradual you don't really notice so you're not swapping them out after 1000 hours.

For a brightness level comparison I bought a claimed 3000 lumens optoma HD141X and run it in eco mode. It's done about 2000 hours by now and is still bright enough to project a 130" image happily. In daylight it's cartoons only, dark content needs the blinds dropping.

good stuff, thank you
Q. (if you feel like answering) how high is your screen and do you sit in front of the projector?
most of the ad's show people looking sideways, the short throw show people sitting behind and looking straight on.

£570 for this model can't go wrong
Edited by: "AJ92" 10th Mar
Thanks. My orginal choice was going to be the Optima HD142 or 143X however apart from more Lumens on the Optoma this model should win hands and no rainbows for any sensitive family members. The contrast ratio is very good. Not many reviews however on this model and only a few hours to decide...

I have just placed an order. I am taking a well researched punt that the EH-5650 (epson.co.uk/pro…650) is the same as the Home Cinema 2150 Wireless (epson.com/For…020) which has some pretty good reviews such as :

I have compared User Manuals for both models and they look identical:

Hope that helps!

So its the US version

So its the US version


I think there the same models with different names but exact same specifications.
Edited by: "shopkeeper" 10th Mar
Many thanks for the info I've taken the plunge In hindsight its probably the right choice especially in this price bracket.

The 2 year warrany, cheap replacement bulbs and cashback is another nice touch.

Heat from me. 1080p projectors like this are better than faux 4K projectors peddled by Optoma @FunkiestMonkey

By the time you upgrade, real 4K projectors will be reasonably priced and represent good value.

How are people who bought this projector finding it? I received mine today but won't get a chance to set it up until the weekend. Still excited about the prospect!

After reading the reviews about the 2150 model which as you quoted is the same US model I took the plunge.
I ran it up for the first time last night purposely picking a very dark scene film. I was blown away with even the out of box settings. Contrast ratio was fantastic with blacks actually black and whites pure. Colours were vibrant, well balanced and not over inhaunced . All this was screened on a beige coloured house wall. So when the screen arrives things are only going to get better.
Fan noise is acceptable and almost non existent on Eco mode which by the way hardly reduces the overall brightness. Keystone settings are brilliant and the auto iris is fine on high speed setting however it needs somemore experimentation.

It's early days and the picture menu settings are infinite so plenty of tweaking can be achieved. But before this some basic learning on how a projector should be set must be researched.
Overall a very happy customer especially knowing that nobody is ever going to see rainbows, bulb cost is minimal and a 2 year guarantee is offered.

Amazing projector! I've bought 2 before and returned both : Optoma HD141X, just had way too noisy a fan and the Epson EH-TW650 which had a great picture but the 1.2 zoom was insufficient to be able to fit a image on the wall I was projecting to in my pokey room. I agree, this projector is very quiet on eco-mode. Looking forward to actually watching some films on it soon!

Oh thanks! I'll check it out this weekend. I thought it was just the north american models that had it disabled by default. I was hoping that functionality would be easily accessible when I got a decent bluetooth speaker.
Edited by: "shopkeeper" 23rd Mar
No mine was disabled by default in spite of the manual stating otherwise. Epson didn't even know this model had Bluetooth until I convinced them to check. And then they couldn't understand why it wasn't enabled. Very strange.

Below is the procedure for activating Bluetooth.It works on all my speakers.

1. Switch on the PJ

2. Press and hold the Menu-Button for 8 sec.

3. Press the ESC-Button twice.
Now a new Window with Information about the PJ appears. With the
"Arrow-right" and "Arrow-left"-Button you can see several other Information Windows.

4. Press again the Menu-Button for 8 sec.

5. Press again the ESC-Button twice.

Now a new Windows appears.
On the left side you see 8 lines named "DIP-SW1" to "DIP-SW 8".
To enable BT menu set DIP-SW 7 BIT 2 from 0 to 1.

6. Restart PJ

7. Go to Menu -> Settings -> Bluetooth to enable this option.
