Well, can you return it?
Pictures and videos do not tell the truth.
The brands V and B(X) offer much better contrast/sharpness/motion and to be honest, you aren't smart enough to know what you like. Let me tell you what you should like.
Don't let the 2 year warranty fool you. Epson will overnight you a refurbished unit which might be junk or let you send off your unit to be repaired.
Most people who know what they are looking at prefer brand X. If you don't get that brand, you are dumb.
All reviews pick Brand X and have nothing good to say about the 2030.
No one likes the auto iris feature so you are stuck with 300:1 native contrast vs the corrected contrast of 1170:1. Brand X while not much better has 4 times the native contrast.
Brand X lamp costs $249, but some members have found aftermarket lamps that seem to work for $70.
Epson is behind the other brands. Everyone has given up on LCD.
The SDE is horrible. Brand X doesn't have a screen door effect and many members sit six inches from the screen.
Very few people have had issues with Brand X getting dust inside lens. Ignore the few.
Very few people have had lamps fail early with Brand X. Ignore the few.
Very few people have had issues with Brand X failing after 12 months. Ignore the few.
Very few people see RBE. Ignore the few.
How did I do? Did I hit them all.
