I use this projo in permanent home and home office applications, which likely are not EPSON's intended uses. So, temper my comments with that.
Projo is plenty bright for semigloss white painted wall opposite sunlit windows, day or night, but night is better, duh! Great either way. Not as bright on flat white paint, which also makes sense. Capable of 2000 lumens stated. Similar EPSONs are only 1000. Hybrid laser LED source is probably good for longevity.
Fan runs faster when above 60% light output and even faster when above 80%. Fan sound is noticible at all light outputs, especially when projo is close behind your head or noise is reflected by a corner near the ceiling.
Resolution is below what I desire, but for off-air broadcast and Netflix, it is fine. I see black lines between pixels when I look for them (which seem odd since projo optics should intentionally blur those separations), but after two weeks of viewing, I don't see lines from this projo unless I look for them.
Only one HDMI input. Had to add an outboard HDMI switch. Would be better with two remotely-controlled inputs, but the cabinet does not have space for more inputs, so I understand EPSON's choice. (1000 lumen EPSONs have two HDMI.)
Three mounting holes on bottom which are not obvious unless you download the nearly 100-page user manual which is very informative and well-written. As shipped, the mounting holes are filled with rubber feet on bolts, which are different than the angle adjustment foot.
No mute button. Remote control mute disables almost everything: video and audio cease but fan stays on at low speed. With video off, you can not see when advertisements end to know when to unmute. Streaming video on the EPSON device (supplied with the projo) proceeds even though projo is not displaying video. That surprised me since the streaming gadget gets its remote-control inputs from the projo. So, to mute during commercials, you have to ramp volume to zero. Old school.
Very happy with projo at EPSON refurbishment half price. Great way to see if a projo makes sense in an application. I continue to use it. Happy to have it. I've bought four lesser-quality projos before and I still own them.
Annoyed that light output, digital keystone and zoom settings are forgotten when projo is turned off unless you use a "Memory" and disable auto keystoning. It remembers the volume and other settings such as image flipping, but forgets the very important light output, keystone and zoom settings. Light output and zoom can be remembered by using a Memory, but that should not be a required step in the usage model. Keystone can not be put into a Memory unless auto is disabled. Kinda hard to find auto keystone setting so as to disable it. It is on one keystone menu but not on another keystone menu, an unnecessary inconsistency. Should be identical.
As you would expect, digital keystoning (instead of optical) discards pixels and creates artifacts on vertical items (I only need vertical correction). Poles and edges shimmer with pixelation. That's just how it works. Especially noticable due to the unnecessary black lines around the pixels, mentioned above.
Experience with this and other long-throw projos teaches me that ultra short throw is likely best in most homes. UST will be my next purchase even though UST costs 5x the cost of this projo. Mounting a long throw or short throw is a severe pain. I have built shelves, stacked boxes and used mounts. The #1 problem with a projo is that it is not a TV monitor that you can easily set on a table or hang on a wall.
Intend to replace 65" monitor currently in office with ultra short throw projo to free up space on my desk. UST will be mounted above desk, pointing down.

because of the limited zoom, it does not accommodate the dimensions of my living room. If I keep this
machine I have to mount it on the ceiling which presents wiring for power and sound problems. Power is
not a big problem but the Bluetooth I understand is only good for head phones. I need it for the soundbar.
If I can overcome these issues I will definitely keep it. and be happy with it. Thank you.
