The Epson Home Cinema 2150 review is given to highlight the strengths and weaknesses of the model with the great contrast ratio, black levels, and color saturation. It’s a flexible gadget in terms of either portability or installation.
It’s possible to use digital audio out of such devices like the PlayStation or the Blu ray player to add them to a projector. To achieve the enhanced sound, it’s necessary to use one of two HDMI connections for a soundbar or other digital audio devices to create surround sound. It’s also possible to use headphones with the 3.5mm audio jack for this purpose. One can use a home theater setup to make connections and outputs correctly.
The 2150 can be hooked up to the laptop via HDMI and to the receiver via the audio out from the projector to the audio in the AVR. The distance of the Epson Home Cinema 2150 projector depends on the screen or image size. To set the appropriate parameters, use the projector Throw Distance Calculator from the Epson’s official website.
The unit can be adjusted by any universal remote, but one can also download the mobile app and control the projector via Wi-Fi.
The 2150’s vertical lens shift allows setting up the projector (when centered horizontally on the projection surface) and being able to move the projected image up or down by 60%. It gives wider opportunities for placement.
This model provides a bright picture even with the window curtains open on a bright day. Contrast ratio up to 60,000:1 let obtain rich detail in dark scenes.
Technically, the Epson Home Cinema is not compatible with 4K resolutions. However, it’s possible to hook it up to a 4K DVD player and watch it on a big screen in high-quality HD format. This device is good for gaming, providing amazing detail, great response times, and no discernible lag. Besides, it comes with the Frame Interpolation to enjoy flawless fast-moving videos.
One of the key Epson Home Cinema 2150 specs is that it has the 3LCD technology to give a crisp video color. Besides, it supports the 3D format, but it’s necessary to acquire 3D glasses. Since the 3D's basic drawback is darkness, the manufacturer took care of higher lumens for getting enhanced 3D.
The heating of this projector is significant. Since the projector is often used together with other elements of the home theater system, both units (a projector and speakers, for example) with major power will get really hot.
Note that the projector supports Miracast, meaning the opportunity of doing wireless presentations from a laptop. This model also can project content directly from USB hard drives. Note that it is not compatible with a Bluetooth soundbar or speakers.
The fan noise does not disturb in the Eco mode, but it becomes more noticeable in the Normal lamp mode.
The unit is compact (12.2 x 11.2 x 4.8 inches) and lightweight (7.7 pounds) that makes it easy to move the projector around. The device doesn’t come with a ceiling mount that’s why it must be purchased separately. However, it works with any of the affordable universal mounts.
The device produces a very compelling image. It fits both watching movies and business presentations regardless of being designed under the home cinema category. The full-packed model meets both gamers and 3D lovers’ preferences. Plenty of connections give rise to many opportunities to control and set up the projector.
