Epson has just announced two evolutionary projectors to replace a couple of their most popular projectors. The Epson Home Cinema 2150 and its younger brother, the Home Cinema 2100, are here to replace the Home Cinema 2040 and 2045. Budget friendly and feature-laden for the home theater, both projectors are priced under $1,000.
This 3LCD projector claims 2,500 lumens, a great contrast ratio, and lots of special features that improve upon those of its predecessor. In this first look review of the Home Cinema 2150, we will discuss the projector in a brief overview, speak on the 2150’s features and benefits, compare the projector to the 2045 as well as the 2100, and review the 2150’s highlights.
Before we continue – what is a First Look Review? It’s something between our full-fledged reviews where we spend lots of time both watching projectors perform, and playing with the projector’s full feature set, and, the other extreme - putting up a manufacturer’s press release, as loaded with hype as they are, (as many sites do).
In some cases, our First Look Reviews are done after we have had a brief look at the projector – at our facility, typically for just a few days. Other times, such as this time, we haven’t had a chance to play with the projector. In such cases, our goal is to apply a mix of insight and common sense to describe how this projector might fit your needs.
This is something we like to do, especially when the projector is just announced, is expected to be very popular, and/or is a direct descendant (with limited differences) with a projector we’ve already reviewed. Enjoy!
