Thanks for the feedback fellows.
I understand what you suggest.
Though I paid $1200 taxed and shipped for mine and didn’t get a free bulb or 15% off coupon. But regardless of cost there is some degree of pursuit on principle here.
I know this will just annoy me as long as I keep it, and will make me want to replace it sooner rather than later...
It’s noticeable when I’m on any flat background color and that’s not really acceptable. I was thinking about it today — why should the unit have this fault which is clearly visible on the own internal test patterns or any casual viewing of a single color background. It supposedly went through a quality control inspection...
If I bought a TV that was pink on the right I’d take the piece of crap right back. I’m getting tired of messing with this for the last 1.5 months is the only reason I’d cave on this. If I hadn’t already sold my Panasonic AE8000U, I’d just gladly go back to it and just get a refund. 5 years old and it didn’t have the problems these Epson refurbs have.
Either Epson is sending out junk, or they aren’t — so either I’m continuously unlucky and it should be made right, or I’ll just keep getting 2nd tier units because that’s what they are sending out??? Those are really the only two possibilities. So far I’m four for four in the junk category. They routinely tell me refurb should be as solid as new as they are all internal tested before shipping out. I’m going to hold you to that Epson. And publicly — right here.
I’ve decided I need to press to make them stand up to what they advertise and affirm with each call...
