Lots of pros a couple of cons, but great value for the money

By Brett

Verified Buyer

Comments about Epson Home Cinema 5040UB 4K Enhancement:

Pros:

- Great value for the price
- Easy setup
- White body is somewhat less-obtrusive in a ceiling-mount situation
- Positioning of ports is well thought-out when the projector is mounted on the ceiling. I was able to use 1'-1.5' cables
- Excellent picture quality on a 110" screen; sharp and clear with UHD and HD sources
- Very quiet fan; not even noticeable directly overhead with an 8' ceiling
- IR sensitivity is excellent. No issues with reflecting IR commands of the screen.

Cons:

- This thing is the size of a large carry-on. "Unobtrusive" would never be a word used to describe it
- Admittedly minor, but the 12v trigger doesn't fire until the lamp has warmed up, leading to some confusion during setup. It can take anywhere from 10 seconds to a minute before the screen lowers.
- Its HDR support isn't compatible with game console output. I specifically purchased and XBOX ONE S to play UHD HDR movies and then had to purchase a UHD Blu-Ray player.
- I saw this mentioned in a review and am seeing the same behavior. Some HDR movies when played back on this projector are very dark. Jupiter Ascending and Oblivion are two examples. Other HDR movies have no issues. Bumping up the contrast helps but is really not a solution.

This is the first projector I've owned and is the fulfilment of a dream I've had for almost 20 years. Overall, I feel the projector is a good value for the money. While it is HUGE; being white, it doesn't stand out as badly against an 8' ceiling as it could.

It was relatively easy to install and configure and the flexibility it has on its lens-shift made aiming a breeze. The only real challenge I ran into is the typical 4K negotiation issue with long HDMI cables. I did finally find a budget 35' HDMI cable that works flawlessly.

Given all this, I'm left a bit disappointed with some HDR movie dimness and the lack of support of console HDR. I'm hoping this can be resolved with a firmware upgrade at some point in the future.

I'd buy it again!

Comments about Epson Home Cinema 5040UB 4K Enhancement:

The projector has been working great. Setup in our home theatre was very easy once I broke down and read the instructions. It was a big step up for us by moving from a very high quality projector that was 12 years old to this state of the art new one. We gained: HDMI, HDCP, 1080p, 4K signal , 4K enhancement, Super High Contrast w/ deep blacks, over 2.5X brighter, Quieter, Motorized Shutter, Motorized Focus and Lens Shift, Longer Life Bulb, Lower Cost Bulb to Replace, and 3D capability.

Last night I setup new aftermarket 3D glasses and experienced 3D for the first time in my own home with my 8 year old. Really cool!. Now I'm just waiting for a new outlet to put the final polish on the install of this new projector. The projector was fairly well calibrated out of the box and just needed to make a few tweaks.

I did a lot of research before buying this projector and it offered a lot of performance at a good value. More than anything else on the market at the time. Sure I would have loved to have native 4K or a LED or Laser light source but this projector had everything else that I was looking for but at a down to earth price with excellent value. I've been very happy with my purchase and projector people were good to work with.

I purchased this for my basement-based home theater. It is paired with my Oppo 105D and is spectacular in use. Set up was a breeze, as was mounting it. Adjusting keystone, angle, screen size was simple. Fantastic ability to adjust mode (I use Bright Cinema most) and sharpness is super simple. Very very pleased with this purchase!!!

    The quick Specs section says 1920 x 1080, that is not 4K so, please explain. Also one review said it was 3D, but that is not in the specs either.. ???

      A:

      It's an eshift 4K it shifts pixels quickly so it simulates a 4K image but it is not native 4K. It does support 3D.

      Answered on 3/1/2017 by Anonymous
    • A:

      it is native 1080p, but by using pixel shift it gets the resolution up to 4k…I can only tell you that it works and the 4k picture is magnificent. It has 3d which works very well also, although all 3d is only 1080P , you need to buy the 3D glasses, however, and I recommend buying the Epson ones as I tried cheaper ones and they were not as good, and some brands were really lousy. Thanks, Don Dyen

      Answered on 2/26/2017 by d.dyen from undisclosed
    • A:

      Correct, it creates a 4K picture using pixel movement (this is described in
      the specs). So not "true" 4K, but you get 4K for a much lower price point.
      It does do HDR. I would check Epson or Sound and Vision review about 3D, I
      do not use that. I believe it does (the glasses are extra, I think), but
      not sure.

      Answered on 2/26/2017 by trhorner from undisclosed
    • A:

      It is not native 4K, but does sort of a faux 4K. It uses several 1080p elements with pixel shifting to simulate 4K. You would be hard pressed to tell the difference. I can confirm that my MacBook Pro detects it as full 4096x2160.

  • Q:

    Does the 5040ub support ECO mode in 3d?

    I have a 5030ub and the fan noise in 3d mode when ceiling mounted is my main complaint with it. How does the 5040ub compare?

    This is something that I didn't realize about the 5030ub until I actually used it. I don't need every bit of brightness in my room and would rather lose some color accuracy by running a brighter mode in ECO mode when in 3d in exchange for less fan noise.

    If the 5040ub can't support this then I might be interested in a sony hw45es. How does the hw45es eco mode brightness compare to the 5030ub?

    Thanks,

    Rich

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      It's not something we've tried, as typically one would want the brightest setting for 3D viewing. The 45ES and the 5030UB should be fairly equal in apparent brightness in either full or eco mode.

    will the 3D only work with Epson brand 3D glasses, or are they built to a standard that allows use of other brands/models of 3D Glasses?

      A:

      The projector needs to be farther away for a 120" diagonal screen. If you can only do 11' away (from lens) then you need to do a smaller size screen. Give us a call at ProjectorPeople.com for further guidance.

      A:

      It depends on the source. If your cable company's native source is 1080p,
      then this projector will upscale it.(It is not native 4k) I have 120 inch
      screen at about a 16 feet viewing distance, and I can tell the difference.
      Might want to take a look here, as they have some good infromation with
      pictures.

      A:

      HI Scott! No, this is a 4K enhanced projector. This projector uses 3 1080p
      LCD panels and it shifts the pixels by .5 vertical. I will tell you that I
      have 4k TV's and then I've compared picture with the Epson 5040uB. This
      projector is Awesome with 4K UHD movies. Also, something that I don't think
      is mentioned anywhere is that the Samsung UHD bluray player is really not
      compatible with this project. I have all three, Samsung, Philips and the
      Panasonic. If you haven't purchased a UHD player, my recommendation is the
      Philips for 299.99 or if you want the best then the Panasonic for $699.99.
      Also for HDMI cables, Monoprice has great cables! Hope this helps and I
      know it's more than what you asked! Robert
