I guess I'm either the first one to either buy this projector or review it, but I have to say that I love this projector it is true HD with over 2 million dot pixels! The image is so awesome and bright even on my wall in my family room.
I've had this projector for about 4 weeks now and have put it through nine hours of movies and games and no problem, although it does run hot, but I'm not surprised with 3LCD. If you're looking to play HD movies and games I would definitely go with the 1040 from Epson! The brightness is awesome and I get around a 100 inch screen from about 12 feet away which is awesome
I would recommend this projector! :)

Excelent projector and store
Posted by: papalja from: on
Purchased the Epson 1040 to replace an Epson 730 (720DPI- 2000Lumens) that was damaged by an E-surge. I Debated about spending the extra to upgrade from 720DPI/2000 Lumens to 108/3000L. REALLY glad I did. The 1080DPI has a fantastic picture and at 3000L is very bright with bright vivid colors. Great for anything from night with all the lights out, to a fully lit family room. Like watching a 92” HDMI TV. The projector casts a 92” picture at 9 feet from the screen (ceiling mount) and could still go a bit larger but that is the limit of my screen.
Set up was easy. I mounted it to the ceiling mount and then flipped the picture and did the keystone adjustment. In hind sight I would have set the projector upright and then flipped the image as it make reading and navigating the menu easier when seeing it right-side up. Keystone adjustment was very easy. Adjusted in minutes. The powered USB port and second HDIM input makes it possible to plug my Chromecast directly into the projector with no other connection required. Fan noise is barely audible with a totally quiet room but was the sound is on, even from just the project without the surround sound going, the fan is not to be heard.
Was happy with the old Epson 730, but the 1040 is FAR better than the older 730. VERY happy with it. Would definitely recommend this projector.

the magic of the big screen...in my home...
Posted by: bigboss from: on
the resolution is ridiculous...awesome picture...
my recommendation if you're not going to buy a screen for a projector and just have the image on your wall...
make sure your paint on the wall isn't semi-gloss or high gloss...it'll look like glitter on the image...use a flat or an eggshell

Amazing picture great price
Posted by: Smak6 from: on
I was in the market to replace my PT-ax200u Panasonic that I have owned for 8 years the panisonic was a great projector but to make it live again it was $400 for a new bulb. I reviewed many websites and decided to take a chance on the Epson media 1040. I am so glad I did the epson is brighter more defined and has an amazing picture for a projector at this price. I put it up against my buddy's $2500. Ben Q and he was amazed also. My son loves to play Xbox one and it does not have to be a dark room to enjoy. I will be getting a new screen as my old one is too small now. I have it projected on a light tan wall currently and still the picture is amazing. Ordered screen pro white screen material from Carl's Place to make a new 144 inch screen instead of the 110 inch I had before. Very impressed with this projector!! Can't wait to see it on a dedicated screen.

Great Projector for its price
Posted by: Aeth from: on
Quality is great for a mid ranged projector. If you're not looking to spend more than 700ish and just looking for some great picture this projector will do it. The sound sucks so be sure to have an external sound source.

you should have a switch to turn it off & On instead of having to plug/unplug it everytime you want to use it, otherwise it's very nice works great!

Ok projector for the average person
Posted by: zooteck from: on
Used to own an 85HD, loved it. It was stolen, so I bought this projector to replace the preowned one. It is good quality, but I would have stuck with the 85HD for home use.

Has a great picture
Posted by: EricaR from: on
I bought this for my boyfriend for his birthday not even a month ago. We used it for the first time last night and it kept getting overheated (it was set on top of an ice chest) and the screen would go blue. We turned it off and let it cool put it in a more ventilated space and even put extra fans on it to keep it cool. Nothing we did worked. We tried to exchange it at Best Buy not realizing it was a 14 day not 30 day exchange/ return policy. We called epson they did offer to replace it but they hold $450 on your credit card until they get the old one back. All in all it was a big disappointment. First time using it and it couldn't last through a movie! I had such high hopes because it had such great reviews. I was blown away at how great the picture looked.
