This is a fantastic projector. Clear, bright picture! Easy to set up as well. I have mine 13 feet from 110 inch screen and works great. Seating is 14 feet from the screen. Also purchased the grey screen with this which projects a great image. Purchased both right from Amazon. Screen was also easy to put together with a little patience. HDMI is a must with Home Theater. Better picture and deeper sound. If you are looking for a projector for your home theater, I would highly recommend this combo!
This would be a great projector if it worked. But I am one of many for whom the projector broke mysteriously after 6 months or so of use. Don't buy this projector - buy something more reliable.
Epson - do you want me to change this review? Agree to expedite ship to me a replacement projector to use while you trouble shoot mine. That would be the fair thing to do.
What I love about it
1) 4K enhancement ability and able to accept 4K signals and output them at a perceivable 4k using pixel shift technology.
3) 20db loudness in ecomode. Can't even hear it 1 foot above my head. In high power it's noticeable but not distracting.
4) 140,000-1 contrast ratio
5) Fully motorized lens shift control, horizontal and vertical and ability to save presets.
What's not so good?
1) Huge size! It's a beast at 35lbs.
2) No audio output or speaker

Before I bought this projector I actually just wanted a slightly bigger TV for my living room but didn't want to spend a lot of money. I had a 55" 1080p and I sit about 11ft away from the screen. I felt it was just a little small for the space. I thought about getting a 65" or 70" but I wouldn't gain much for $1200 over my current TV. I then bought an Optima HD27 for around $600 and didn't like it at all. Image quality was too poor. I then bought an Epson 1060 and really liked the quality and brightness better but the loudness was unbearable. At this point I knew that I had to spend some money in order to get what I wanted. The Epson 5040ub was my first choice but at $2700 it was just too much. I saw the 4000 model and found it is basically the 5040ub's little brother. The only difference is the 4000 is a slightly performance-reduced version of the Home Cinema 5040UB. They are almost identical projectors, with differences only in brightness & contrast. I decided on the 4000. So it was at this point after trying 3 projectors and 3 screens and various mounts and equipment I told the wife I spent $2600 on a $999 TV budget. She was not pleased and told me to send it all back. I showed her some 4K HDR on the Epson 4000 on a 100" screen and she hasn't left the living room. I think she forgave me :)
Top international reviews
Bright scenes look fantastic. Colors really pop especially with HDR/4K content. It's night scenes that the projector really struggles. If you turn the brightness low, things are too dim to make out what's going on. Too high and the color looks washed out an gray. Black levels are just poor, so this is a good choice if you're either A) on a budget and need 4K and lens memory or B) using it in a room with lots of ambient light and washed out blacks aren't an issue.
The remote requires infrared to reach the projector. This is a huge nuisance since my projector is in the back of the room through a window, very hard to get it to turn on without getting up and firing the signal through the window.
I'll probably use this projector for a couple years and then upgrade to one with better black levels once 4K projectors aren't bonkers in terms of price.
Setting up the projector is easy. It comes well-packed, and instructions have you up and running in a few minutes. Placing the projector is usually the toughest part of the setup, but with a ceiling mount it is out of the way. This is not a light projector; it will likely require some strength to hold it while mounting on a wall or ceiling, but if you're placing it on a table or shelf it should be fine with one person. Running inputs to the projector through conduit in the wall makes for a clean install. In use, there's a very small amount of noise from the projector, but only noticeable when there is no audio in the room.
The Epson 4000 4ke is not a true 4K video projector, although it will accept 4K UHD signals. It will upscale standard HD video (1080i/p), resulting in a nice crisp picture from standard BluRays. Brightness is not an issue, with the Epson 4000 4ke throwing out 2,200 lumens. While this is not quite as bright as my current projector, by a few hundred lumens, the current project cost over ten times what the Epson costs, so it's not a fair comparison. And 2,200 lumens is more than enough to watch in daylight conditions, although not direct sun (the picture washes out). In a darkened room, or at night, the picture is a stand-out with enough brightness to see details. After letting the projector break in for a few dozen hours, I ran my calibration DVDs on the picture and got the colour levels where I like them (near flat), and sat back to watch a few of my favorite test movies. The black levels and colours are solid and saturated, producing an attractive picture with none of the black patterns sometimes seen in projectors. Contrast ratios are excellent.
The remote allows you to control everything (especially in a ceiling mount configuration), and there's a nice zoom feature on the lens. I['m not sure how much I'd use the zoom in daily watching, but it is a nice capability to have. After sitting through several movies, a few concerts, and some HD cable shows, I am impressed with the Epson 4000 4ke, especially at this price. While some will think it's still expensive, compared to some projectors on the market this is a bargain. I'm delighted with this projector and can recommend it to anyone looking for a top-quality video projector.
The actual unit itself is absolutely massive - be ready to have to upgrade your ceiling mount if you're using a smaller, ~$1000 1080p projector at home. In use, the size, build quality and feature set really make this feel like a premium item. In terms of usability - this has all electronic lens adjustment and an electronic lens cover as well. Very nice touches given the price, and you'll even be able to electronically adjust lens shift in case you projector isn't dead centre on with your projector panel - the added flexibility makes set up and arrangement of your home theatre a lot easier. The inputs are thoughtfully placed and chosen, with a good number of HDMI ports and alternative inputs as well. This doesn't come with any A/V cables for you to use, which would've been nice, but this isn't a big detractor considering how ubiquitous these are now.
I've already spoken about the image quality and how happy I am with it. Other factors to consider in use - the projector is not very loud, so the fan noise won't bother you when watching films, even quieter dramas. Another important consideration will be the throw distance - compared to my old 1080p projector, I had to have this a good meter or so further back to get the same sized image.
Overall really happy with this projector. It's a great way to take advantage of some 4k content without breaking the bank and going for a full 4K projector, which would take you to closer to $10,000. Stellar build quality, with lots of usability features that make set up and use feel like a polished and premium experience.
I won't go into all of the technical specs and such, that would just pad my review with things you either already know, or can scroll up on the page to see them. Instead, I'll try to keep this short and to the point.
First of all, this projector is massive. It's not like those little dinky ones you saw at school or whatever. It's wide, it's fat, it's heavy, it's got a big chunk of glass on the front. It's going to need a large support platform or mounting brackets, so keep that in mind.
The first night I owned the Epson Home Cinema 4000, I just propped it up on an open drawer on our hutch - not the smartest idea, but I had nowhere else to put it and my 5-year-old was super excited to learn what the thing did. I connected my laptop to it and pointed it at my largest, barest, light-grey wall. We then watched Elf via Netflix, and felt like we were at a private movie theatre. Except, better, because the theatre near us is garbage, and we were able to lay down on the floor with our dog and enjoy the show.
I guess it's not true 4K, but I wouldn't know. It looks simply fantastic to me, though I've only watched videos and played games via 1080p sources. It is much brighter than I had imagined, even when I put the bulb into Eco mode to save on power and extend bulb life. Even in the daytime in my living room, viewing wasn't an issue, so you could imagine that it was that much better once I moved it to my basement. I don't have a proper screen for it at the moment; I have set up a large opaque blind in my basement, which will suffice for now. It still looks great, and it's a nice, clear, bright, and - most importantly - big picture.
The best part about this compared to another projector that I got, is that the lens is very, very adjustable (electronically, too). This makes positioning it a lot more flexible. There are a ton of configuration options in the menus, including terms and settings that I have no clue what they do, and probably never will. It has a network port on it, but I don't know that I'll ever us that, either. HDMI and VGA inputs are pretty much all I need. What would have made it absolutely perfect, though, is component and composite inputs, so that we could hook up older video game consoles to it. Unfortunately, those are absent.
It comes with a remote that accesses all the features you need for typical operation. The only bad thing is that the power button seems to control both this projector, and a completely different model Epson projector, which I have pointed at the same screen (because it does have composite inputs). The remote for that unit does likewise for this one. This is too bad. I can't see any way around it.
One exciting feature that I have not yet been able to test, is the 3D support. I'd love to try this out, but I haven't got any compatible glasses. It's perhaps something to look forward to in the future. I'd love to know how it compares to the 3D I've experienced in the bigger cities' cinemas.
I don't know what else to really say about it. If you can find the space for mounting it, pair it with a good sound system, and you won't be disappointed!
The image projected is definitely high definition and it impressed me right out of the box. I didn’t really know what 4K was before I got this projector, but from what I understand, this is 4K enhanced but isn’t true 4K. What I can tell you is that a true 4K projector is much more expensive, and the resolution from this projector is really great for home use.
The lens is automatic and motorized. By using the lens shift setting, the projector will make the screen into a true rectangle for optimal viewing. You could set this up in any room and this button will help it adjust to how large your projection screen/area is. This projector automatically figured out the focus and zoom on its own, which is amazing. It takes away any guesswork, and you can get watching your shows much quicker.
The colours are bright and vivid but even the blacks were perfect. Even the dark scenes are easy to watch in my living room that still had light filtering in. I have since moved it to our rec. room in the basement and the colours are even better.
I am planning to get a ceiling mount but for now, it has set up easily on a stand in my rec. room. I have been watching a ceiling mount on Amazon and it looks like I can get it for about $45-60. Once we decide which wall we want to use, I plan on purchasing and getting it installed.
This projector has 3D viewing capabilities, but I am not really a fan of 3D, so I haven’t tried it.
What’s convenient when you have it sitting on a stand or table is the little side panel. We used it to set up the projector. You can access the menu and get the lens to automatically adjust in this panel. The back of the projector has plenty of ports- 2 HMDI, PC, USB, USB service, and LAN, Opti HDMI and RS-232C.
The motor is really quiet. Even if it was sitting on a stand near you, it would not be something that would even attract your attention or take away from your viewing pleasure which brings me to the last point… This projector does not come with speakers. It makes good sense, if you have a great projector, you will likely want a great sound system to give you that full theatre experience.
So, overall, it was a little intimidating to set this up at first. I have found the cheaper ones with the built-in speakers to be easier, but this one is worth the time and effort. It gives you a wonderful theatre experience and you will enjoy watching movies with this!
It's quite a bit bigger than I had expected it to be and, at this point in time I feel too overwhelmed too suspend it from the ceiling but I am going to get my handyman on it when he can. For now, it's working set upon a little table.
I was disappointed I can't figure out a way to connect it with my sonos soundbar - I see someone else has had the same issue. For now I will use it without and see if I can figure out how to coordinate it with sonos. Either way, I am enjoying it and it will make for a fantastic movie night experience at home. :)
This week, I’ve been testing the Epson Home Cinema 4000 4Ke projector, an entry-level 4k option that hits the sweet spot between affordability and performance.
Considering this is a low to mid-range projector, I’ve been pretty impressed so far, and for those looking to get into the 4k projection game without the enormous cost of the true native 4k units, the price is right for what you get and the picture quality it provides will satisfy most eyes.
When I opened the box I was shocked at the size of this projector. Its size is almost double the size of the 1080p DLP projector it was replacing, and double the weight as well. The lens is a lot larger too, almost double the diameter. Buttons are hidden under a sliding door on the side of the unit which is easy to access. There are two HDMI inputs, one for 4k and the other for 1080p. There are ports for VGA monitor hookup, optical HDMI, RCA and two 12v triggers.
Compared to similar projectors like the UB5040 or 4030UB, this projector has many of the same features like lens memory, fully motorized lens carriage, motorized lens cover, 4K enhancement, 3D, frame interpolation… but it lacks some of the customizable image processing found on those more expensive units. Despite this, it manages to throw an amazing image that will satisfy all but the most critical eyes. This is a true 4k projector in that it addresses over 8 million distinct pixels on-screen simultaneously, even if it uses technical sorcery to achieve it using its 2k chip.
At first I expected installation to be difficult due to the unwieldy size, but it turned out to be easier than expected. I simply placed it on a shelf above the couch near the ceiling, aimed it at the screen and used the remote control to adjust the screen position.
Its fully motorized lens positioning system lets you adjust the focus zoom with the push of a button, and lens shift lets you move the picture up and down and side to side… almost up to the entire screen width! This is the most lens shift I’ve seen yet. This makes installation extremely flexible so you don’t have to be so precise with projector placement. It also allows full control over screen position without using keystone adjustments, which would sacrifice pixels in order to straighten the image. Another nice feature is the lens memory feature, which lets you set multiple lens and zoom positions if you want to change to a screen of a different aspect ratio. I found however that it wouldn’t go exactly to where it was set, always being slightly off in either direction every time. This is a slight disappointment in an otherwise very useful feature.
Right out of the box the picture was stunning. With some tweaks it was even better. I immediately wanted to see what 4k enhancement looks like enabled versus disabled, and I found that it really does project double the pixels onto the screen. Upscaling brings new life to your old blu-rays, erasing any evidence of pixelation. The resulting image is smooth and pleasing. The fast auto-iris enables inky blacks in dark scenes without distracting brightness fluctuations. Picture in picture lets you view two sources at once, and allows you to place the second source anywhere on the screen. I don’t have glasses to test the 3D capabilities of this projector, but I’m hoping it will allow higher resolution 3D than with my 1080p DLP, which only could handle 720p in 3D which looked less than stellar on a 110” screen. I’ll update this review with my 3D experience when I get the chance to test it.
Compared to other projectors in this price range which are based on the new 4k DLP chip, this Epson is based on 3LCD technology at 1080p, and to achieve 4k it uses pixel-shifting technology to double the on-screen resolution of its native 2k chips. And since there is no colour wheel present, there is no rainbow effect as seen on some DLP units. Colours are bright and vibrant, and true to life. It supports the same colour standards used in commercial cinemas, and it looks fantastic.
Although it puts out a fairly decent image, it struggles with fast motion, sometimes losing clarity during scenes with fast-moving objects or panning scenes. Where this projector shines is in Digital Cinema mode, where it provides deep blacks and super high contrast and realistic colour that make films seem to pop right off the screen. Film grain is clearly visible and welcome, as it makes the film seem more alive in my opinion.
HDR10 is selectable in the menu, but I found it to make the screen almost black, and I couldn’t make out details in dark scenes. This projector looks its best in SDR mode, surprisingly, despite setting my Apple TV to HDR4k and setting the projector to HDR as well. The resulting image was almost black, with glaring whites and all detail lost. Setting the projector and Apple TV back to SDR brought the image back to life again, and I was left scratching my head wondering why HDR is so overhyped. It rendered everything nearly unwatchable on this projector.
Unfortunately there are some menu settings such as frame interpolation which are greyed out. This would have added frames in between to provide smoother motion, but the feature is disabled on this unit. Some other premium features found in comparable Epson projects are also greyed out, probably to save costs and make this unit more affordable.
It also has limitations in how it handles 4k signals, resorting to 8 bit colour or 30 fps frame rate in some situations, unlike more expensive projectors which are capable of full 60 frames per second at 12 bit colour. The difference however is unnoticeable to the untrained eye, making this projector just fine for most people.
The bulb is accessible through a hatch on the body of the unit, making bulb replacement easily achieved by the owner. There’s a user-serviceable HEPA filter under the front grate that stops dust from contaminating the image. The warranty on this unit is a generous 2 years, and 90 days on the bulb. If there is ever a problem Epson will even loan out a unit during repairs for minimal down-time.
In conclusion, I am really satisfied with this projector. It is a nice step-up from any 1080p projector, with a price that is finally within reach for those looking to get into 4k viewing. I would recommend this projector to movie lovers who want to upgrade their 1080p unit and get the benefits of higher-resolution 4k content. I think it was a real step up from the BenQ HT2040 1080p projector I was using before this.
Hooks up to surround sound well.
Picture quality is fantastic, but best on a good quality screen.
I would like to make a few comments about the setup and ease of use.
Firstly, when this arrived I was very surprised at the size of the unit - it weighs 23 lbs and is big - almost 8" tall, 21" long (front to back) and 18.5" wide. This created an issue for how we would mount it compared to our old projector. Epson does sell mounting units for this projector and those are needed unless you can box it out or build a sturdy shelf for it. The shelf or box out (if you build one) needs to consider that the door for controlling the lens is on the side of the unit. The wires come out the back (as per standard)
When it arrived, I was really hoping that this was plug and play for my SONOS system, but there is no optical audio output on the projector, resulting in a need to purchase an HDMI to Optical switch or the "optional" wifi unit for the projector. This unit ended up costing much more than expected.
I will also say that this is a difficult unit to retrofit to a room. If you don't already have a system to allow for the unit to plug into your ceiling, and long enough HDMI cables, for the unit, you are a bit hooped for setup.
Having said all that, if you are willing to spend the time and money to get the projector set up properly, you will love the viewing experience!
