Excellent projector - best in class for price

I love this projector, the image is sharp and crisp and it works well on my 120" screen given the short throw distance (~12 ft).

I was a bit surprised that when I received this projector , it already had 4 hours on it? I have had 3 projectors before this one and was not overly impressed with evolution of projector improvement. Yes blacks were better but it all depends on the quality of the feed. This projector will not make a mediocre disk look like something it is not. The projector is mounted on a shelf , 13 ft from a 100 inch elite saker screen. Source is an Oppo BDP 93 bluray player. HDMI cable directly to projector . Mainly up scaling 1080p to Faux K. Improvement is only for a real discerning eye. A bit disappointed. Have not purchased a new 4 K disc player yet to see what down scaling 4 K to Faux K looks like. I suspect that is what all the talk is all about with this projector. All my HDMI cables are certified to carry a 4K signal. Your mileage may vary. Projector People was great to deal with. Do not hesitate to place your order with them.

Comments about Epson Home Cinema 5040UB 4K Enhancement:

I installed this projector in home theatre using a ceiling mount with 110in screen. Previously I was using an Epson 6500UB which I purchased in 2009 and was quite happy with it until it needed a serious repair. This projector is far superior to its predecessor and the difference is amazing. The setup was easy and the controls are intuitive. It looks and feels like I'm watching a bright LED screen. The menus allow all kinds of color and brightness adjustments according to your needs and preferences. It also has lens adjustment and a really good keystone compensation. I'm delighted with the purchase.

Big improvement over my 5030UB. The 5040UB plays 4K UHD signal like a native 4K projector at the fraction of the price. Bright and vivid (but still natural) colors, sharp real-like images on a 133 diagonal screen. People walking in my home theater, all say: WOW!!!!
Thank you Epson for an other great projector at a very reasonable price!!!

Awesome so far

Comments about Epson Home Cinema 5040UB 4K Enhancement:

This projector is amazing. We thought our previous Panasonic HD projector bought in 2009 was great but this one is dramatically better. It's almost as good as watching a flatscreen TV in spite of the extra size available in that market. The only issues I've discovered so far is that after installing it to the ceiling mount, it was difficult to see the menu to adjust the screen to the wall rather than the ceiling. Also, it's not as simple switching through aspect ratios as our old Panasonic. But it does have several lens memory settings so I think we'll eventually get it optimized. Inspite of all that our first movie viewing on this projector has been nothing short of awesome. Another nice feature is that it is white so mounted to the ceiling it blends in better than our previous black unit. For those not mounting it to the ceiling please be warned that this is a very large projector. No big deal for me but if it was on a table it would take up a lot of space.

  • Q:

    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 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.

      Answered on 2/26/2017 by bghoward 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 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.

  • 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

      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.

      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.

      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
