Official Epson Home Cinema HC2100/2150 (TW5600/5650/5400) Owners
115 hours on the Epson 2150 and no issues to speak of, running it mostly in bright cinema mode. I have yet to tweak any settings to help with shadows, blacks, etc. but there’s room for improvement. As it stands in the default mode, the blacks are crushed a bit and shadow detail lost. To my eye, the colors look fairly accurate and are vibrant/saturated.
My spouse doesn’t always like watching TV or eating with the lights off during a movie; in an effort to reduce the image turning yellow or drastically washing out, I swapped the soft white 2700K bulbs in two lamps for a couple 40 watt 6500K bulbs, and it seems to do the trick. While the blacks are obviously more gray with a small lamp on, the projected image no longer has a yellow tint to it across the screen, which I found unbearable. The colors stay neutral, and the picture quality is now acceptable during times when extra ambient light is necessary.
I read that white level is often calibrated to 6500K, similar to sunlight around noon, so I guess this could be one reason why.
