Epson 2150 Update: I still haven’t been able to fix the big yellow spot in my image that appeared several months back.
I got a good deal on a new open box Epson 3700 yesterday, and by all accounts this PJ will be a small upgrade in every aspect over the 2150. I didn’t want to send my 2150 off for months to figure out what’s wrong with the lens or panels that is causing that large yellow spot during dark content. Other than this issue, the 2150 still runs fine with around 2000 hours on the original bulb.
Best Buy is letting me trade in the 2150 for full credit towards the new 3700 purchase otherwise I probably would have just bought another 2150 which is on sale again at $699. This is at least the third or fourth time this PJ has gone on sale in its short life span, so it does make me wonder why, but they’re selling like hot cakes.
I’ll post my thoughts on how the two projectors compare, though they should be rather similar from a performance and picture quality standpoint; the build quality of the 3700 is definitely a notch above from just having unboxed it. I’d expect it to be given it’s in a tier above (from 2016) that a few features trickled down to the 2100 and 2150 released the next year in 2017.
