Best projector for $1500 price point?

  1. I second this. A Epson 5040UB on the used market is an excellent value. It is effectively the same projector as the $4000 Epson LS11000 except without the laser lifespan and 4K 120Hz support.

  2. In my experience, the Optoma projectors with DLP chips have pretty underwhelming black levels and contrast. Even in a patch dark room. And this doesn't even take into account the rainbow effect that some people see when viewing a DLP based projector.

  3. 2 Friends on mine - one has the new Optoma UHD55 for $2000 and the other has a new Samsung LSP9T for $6000. I come home to my Epson 5030 and am still really satisfied. I agree with all the other comments here. Used Epson 5030 or 5040. Lots of them now well below $1000. You can buy a new bulb and enjoy it for years- and still have $500 to spare.
