Epson EX71 projector for Home Theater?
I just picked up a Epson EX71 for just over $500 and am wondering if I should open it or not, (I impulse bought the last one they had at that price
). I know this a more business oriented projector but I've read it's virtually identical to the Epson 705HD.
I like a few things about this projector; brightness, $180 bulbs good for 5000 hours, versatility, price, and some really good reviews. But I've also read the black levels aren't very good and some were disappointed with the picture compared to DLP projectors. I also read it will accept a 1080p signal but the box says 1080i.
Can anyone give me any insight to what I should do? Is this a great deal for a $800 projector? I was thinking of the HD66 for $200 or so more and getting 3D support or one of the sub $1000 1080p models but the budjet is beyond tight right now with the ongoing basement renos.
