I did the research, read countless reviews, along with getting familiar with all of the proper jargon. I kept coming back to this projector, but it wasn't released yet. I pre ordered it and I am extremely pleased. This picture is amazing on 4K movies, reg blu ray, reg HD channels, football games, non HD channels. My biggest surprise was that I could watch with the light on!!! I even purchased a inexpensive 125" elite spectrum screen with a 1.1 gain. Picture quality great!! Don't spend $8k for a 4K projector when you would prob have to have it side by side to even tell a difference. This projector is that good. Highly recommended, especially at that price!!

I had an Epson 3020 projector and when purchasing the 5040, I wasn't sure it would be that noticeable of a change. WOW, was I wrong. This projector is absolutely amazing for the price. The colors and the clarity are very close to the $10k Sony projector. I could not be happier with this purchase and would highly recommend to anyone.

Leaps and bounds better than the previous model
Posted by: Kelvin1000 from: on
The Bottom Line: Two standout projectors that can reproduce both 1080 and 4K content. The Epson will know doubt handily outsell the JVC, because I believe it will appeal more, to sports and TV lovers, and even for some/many? big time movie fans. For the hard core fanatics, demanding great black levels, of course the JVC has a real advantage. Those folks (which certainly includes me when it comes to movie watching), will have to trade off between the JVC’s blacks and the advantage in perceived sharpness of the Epson. No matter which of these two you pick, you will almost certainly be thrilled, especially when you consider how great these two are for their price.

The best projector in the market
Posted by: Taco from: on
This projector has amazing clarity. Altough you must have it on enhanced mode in order to experience the 4K like picture (which can cause quicker wear and tear to the bulb) it's worth having it on enhance mode at all times. A bit pricy but extremely worth it.

Wowzers! This projector blows my previous BenQ W1070 away! I was a bit skeptical with this whole faux-K e-shift thing. But it's the real deal. 4K blu rays and 4K streaming on YouTube and Netflix look phenomenal. No, it may not be as drastic as SD to HD, but it is definitely noticeable, and that's what I wanted... a noticeable difference. And yes, even the regular HD images look better. My Directv picture is even impressive and the e-shifting of regular 1080p blu rays look gorgeous. This Epson is also very quiet despite its size. I am pleasantly surprised. (Nice rhyme eh?) Anyway, the bottom line is that I would definitely recommend this to my own mother. Yes, it's expensive, but worth it in my opinion. Oh, another benefit of this Epson over my old BenQ is that it's way brighter. I can actually turn on lights and let some sunlight in while maintaining a very watchable picture. Well, if you have about $3000 to spend, I think this is way better than getting a top of the line TV.

Generally excellent, with a couple small issues
Posted by: doubledeej from: on
This is a generally excellent projector, producing a gorgeous, bright image. And it produces the best 3D I've seen yet. But, there are a couple caveats that buyers ought to be aware of...
First, even though it supports 4K signals and HDR, it will not do 4K HDR at 60fps. The HDR features are limited to 4K30 and below (which does include 1080p60). The HDMI chip on the projector has a maximum bandwidth of 10 Mbps, which is lower than the 18 Mbps required to achieve 4K HDR at 60fps.
Second, even though it supports HDR, it really isn't quite bright enough to do it justice. When projecting an HDR image, overall brightness drops quite a bit, to the point where the image is too dim by default. You can put the projector into a different HDR mode to get a brighter image, but then you lose the benefit of HDR in the first place. Even though this projector is generally pretty bright, true HDR support would really require a projector that can put out a lot more light -- 10,000 lumens or more.
Third, currently the Xbox One S won't do 4K HDR with the projector. It's the Xbox's fault, and supposedly a software fix is coming. But for right now you can't watch HDR in 4K if you use the Xbox One S as your source. Other sources seem to work fine, though (as long as they keep 4K output under 30 fps).
But overall this really is a great projector. It is amazing. I do love it!

Definite upgrade over 1080 projector
Posted by: Dadof2Sons from: Valparaiso, IN on
My previous projector was a Panasonic AE7000, and the Epson 5040 is worth the upgrade. It is brighter with better colors and contrast. The 4k enhancement does improve perceived resolution of 1080 broadcast and Blu-ray material. The 4k Netflix and Amazon Prime shows look great as do the 4k Blu-ray movies (played on a Phillips 4k player). It also does a great job with 3D movies.

I upgraded from a Sony 1080p projector to the Epson. The Epson gives an amazingly bright and sharp picture. With a 4K source the Epson looks great! The HDR adds great depth and color to the image. I recommend setting the projector to HDR1 when watching UHD sources like 4K blu-rays. Very happy with my purchase.

I was able to get a fourteen foot wide picture at ultra hd quality in my living room at 14 ft away . The 3 D picture is awesome to . I can stream Netflix
In HD quality on a Sony blue ray which looks awesome to.
Great product great buy. You'll need a audio receiver for sound
But you can't beat size and quality you can get from this projector .
