A great and easy to set up ProjectorJune 22, 2017
To start off the packaging on this is done very well. There is a lot of styrofoam and other protection to keep the items all separated from each and safe. The box itself is about 26”X20”x10” and weighs about 30 lbs. In the box you get the Home Cinema 4000 Projector, a power cord, some HDMI clamps for supporting the HDMI cables, a remote with batteries, a CD Rom with user guide, and a Quick Setup Guide. The set up for this is very easy. Much easier than expected. And the quick setup guide is very easy to follow. First step is where to place the projector. Either set it up so that its either level with the top or bottom of the screen and centered. There are other options if needed but this is the ideal location. If you cant have it level with the top of bottom of the screen due to your set up and space you can use the lens shift feature to get it aligned. This is explained it the next section. The next step is connecting your video sources, in my case this is my XBOX One S with HDR. Turn on the video source, then connect the power cord from the projector. Turn on the projector using the remote, or the device. You are now ready to set up the projector for your specific set up, settings, sources, etc. Once the initial set up is complete its now onto setting the image to your liking. This is easily done by pressing the pattern button on the remote which will give you an image that helps you with the alignment. You then just adjust the feet on the front of the projector to get it aligned where you want it. Once aligned you can now focus the image by pressing the lens button on the remote and the left and right buttons to get it into focus. This same lens button also helps you adjust the size and the position of the image as well. If the image is good you are now all set up. This projector is also 3D compatible. If you want to view 3D content you will need a 3D video compatible device as well as Epson 3D glasses. Epson has some compatible glasses if you want 3D, they are part # V12H548006. I personally am not into 3D anymore. I tried it a few times with a previous device, but its nice that this is 3D compatible. For the sound set up it was not hard at all. We already have a receiver with external speakers so its as simple as connecting the receiver via HDMI to the projector and my XBOX One S. From here it on to enjoying Netflix HDR, Amazon Video, and of course HDR gaming as well. The remote is very nice with all the buttons laid out well, without overdoing it. The quality here is top notch. I am very happy with this projector and look forward to connecting more devices in the future such as the new XBOX One X when it releases. I cant only imagine how great content and gaming will look. If you are looking for a projector than this is is a great choice. Highly recommended. Thanks for reading.

Great PQ, Stacked Features, HUGE EnclosureJune 26, 2017
Epson is known for having great home theater projectors for a great price, and the Home Cinema 4000 is no exception. A full feature set combined with very good looking picture make this a projector worth considering if you can afford the price tag. Some will undoubtedly be put off by the GIANT form factor, however. One of the greatest benefits of this projector is the fact that it has lens shift capability (which is not necessarily the case for all projectors in this price range, though it definitely should be in my opinion). This gives the user a great amount of flexibility in how they can place the projector; you don't need to be dead center to the screen to get a properly proportioned image. The throw distance numbers are quite adequate, as well: you can get The 4000 has a great feature set, in addition to the lens shift. The projector accepts input formats all the way up to 4K HDR (via the HDMI 2.2 port). This is nice from a "future-proof" standpoint, but the native resolution of the projector is still 1080p, though it is claimed that the true output resolution is somewhere greater than 1080. Opinions vary greatly on whether this should actually be considered a "4K" projector, since it employs what Epson calls "pixel shifting" to achieve "4k Enhancement" picture quality. The inclusion of HDR 10 compatibility is a huge plus here, as the Epson is able to reproduce the entire HDR color spec. You don't see that on projectors in this price range, or anywhere near it for that matter. Out of the box, the picture quality is quite frankly great, but for those who have the means of having it calibrated, this projector has 2 point white balance controls and full color management for the 3 primary and 3 secondary colors. This allows you to tweak settings at a granular level, which is important for anyone considering a projector at this level. In my situation, I replaced a Panasonic plasma that had quite amazing picture quality (pretty much only the current crop of OLEDs look better to my eyes), so the black level of this projector has taken some acclimation time, but in my experience, this is on par with anything else out there. I've heard DLP projectors tend to show better black levels, but the rainbow effect bothers me greatly so 3LCD projectors like this one are a great option. At peak brightness, the 4000 throws out up to 2,200 lumens, so it performs reasonably well with some ambient light, but you'll still want to light control your room for the best picture possible. The one downside for me was how large this projector is. It is a beast of a machine, and has a fairly substantial weight (a shade under 30 lbs). Mounting it on the ceiling will most likely require two people and a fair amount of clearance. If you have the real estate, though, this shouldn't be more than a minor annoyance. One thing I've noticed, though, is that this projector is incredibly quiet; most likely attributable to the case size. In summary, this is a great projector. It checks nearly all the boxes for what I want in a projector (the only missing feature being native 4k resolution, but that's not happening at this price) and has great picture quality. Highly recommended.

WOW - TV/Movies Will Never Be The SameJune 21, 2017
First, let me begin by saying that I have always been skeptical of projectors. Sure they produce the largest viewing size, but this is typically at the cost of image quality. Additionally, they've always been a little clunky that required a lot of extra equipment and just seemed like dying technology. The Epson Home Cinema 4000 has COMPLETELY proven me wrong. Let's start with setup and required additional equipment. As with most projectors, you will need an external sound source. I recommend something with some power to match the awesome experience provided by the Epson 4000. That's it! A dedicated projection screen is not needed! I was impatient and just wanted to see what it looked like so I used a clear white wall as my screen and the picture looked fantastic. I'm sure there are some benefits to having a screen, but for those of you who may not have a dedicated home cinema room or just trying to save some $$, you can rest assured a clean white wall will work just fine. The great thing is, the only thing limiting your projection size is the size of your wall/room. Once you have everything in place, setting up the projector was far easier than I've ever experienced with other projectors. It really is as easy as plug and play. 1) Plug in the power 2) Plug in the video source 3) Connect audio to video source 4) Press power button. The on-screen menu controls are very easy to understand and I was able to adjust the projection angle within seconds and begin watching one of my favorite movies in well under 5 minutes. There's no need to adjust the legs since the Epson 4000 has a vertical lens angle adjuster of +/- 30 degrees controllable from the remote. I didn't mount the projector, instead I used a coffee table which was fine since I wanted to use it right away. For long term/permanent use, I'd obviously recommend mounting from the ceiling or having a dedicated platform toward the back of the room. Once you get your movie/video started is when you really begin to see the Epson 4000 shine. The colors are bright and true. Even with a lot of ambient light, the projection was clear and very enjoyable. Adjustments to all of the typical picture settings are easily done via the remote control. I started off watching a Blu-Ray in HD. The Epson 4000 upconverts to near 4K and you can instantly tell a difference. Fast action scenes aren't a problem and every detail is crystal clear. However, native 4K video is where you're really going to notice the difference. While 4K looks great and you can tell a small/moderate difference between 4K/1080p on a 55" LED, it makes a BIG difference when viewing a 100" (projection can be as large as 300"! ) projection from the Epson 4000. The projection is so large, lifelike, and crystal clear, you're engrossed in the scenes. Again, this is where an excellent sound system will only further enhance an already great experience. I use a premium soundbar with 8" sub that I purchased from Best Buy's Magnolia Home Theater department. I love my soundbar and sub, but a full home theater sound system would give you the best experience. The Epson 4000 has a 3D lens, but I'm not a huge 3D fan. That being said, it's very easy to flip a switch and it will convert regular images to 3D. In conclusion, this is a fantastic home theater projector. There are certainly cheaper options, but you definitely get what you pay for. If you want to watch super clear realistic pictures that make you forget your watching on a projector, you need to buy the Epson 4000. It will blow you away and you'll wonder what you're going to do with that brand new 55" TV you just got. Pros: -Picture quality (color, brightness, motion clarity) -Picture quality again... It's just phenomenal -Setup -Heat Dissipation (for such a large projector, the heat dissipation was pretty efficient and I never felt like the stand was getting too hot) Cons: -Price (obviously, this will be out of range for some) -Size (it's huge so have a place to put it)

This thing is amazingJune 19, 2017
I have used this all weekend with various devices and its been excellent. Set up is really easy, i had this up and running in no time. I used this both outdoor and indoor over the weekend and this thing went like a champ. 1st thing i used was my cable box, i used this in my man cave in the basement, i had the projector around 12 feet away, the picture was really clear and vibrant, i was shocked at how good it looked. This is my first real projector for home use and my memories of older unites wasnt that great. this on the other hand is amazing. I then wanted to check out the HDR so i plugged in my Xbox One S, the dashboard was crisp and clean, i played John Wick 2 which was a 4k UHD disk with HDR and oh my... It looked amazing and made everything look even more brutal than it did in the cinema. No shadowing, no stutters, just a great viewing experience. I also played Forza Horizon 3 which had HDR and had the same stunning effect. Its great for gaming as the latency seemed to be really low as in not noticeable at all. Its great for 4k and HDR media. It also plays really nice with teh Chromecast, this is when i used the device outdoors, people were aboe to cast to teh Home Cinema and play YouTube videos, this was great and made the day better than it would have been without. People loved it and several said that this may be the next upgrade they make when considering a new TV. Its that good So overall im no expert but as an everyday consumer this is a must buy. If you are looking for an HDR 4k experience with a projector then look no further, the price on this is great compared to others, the build quality is exceptional and its a blast to game on. go ahead and treat yourself!

amazing projector for home theater on a budgetJune 17, 2017
i'm not sure exactly what i was expecting when i unboxed this projector. i've always wanted one, but i've always been a bit skeptical of them. i can say that, after doing a preliminary setup of this projector, those fears are laid to rest. wow...this is exactly how movies were intended to be watched. i have a 65" samsung 1080p in the living room, and it's great. it's more than great, it's something i've really enjoyed watching movies and shows on. to this point, i had no idea what i was missing. watching TV on the samsung is just that - it's watching *TV*. when i fired up the epson projector however, i stepped into the realm of the *cinema* experience. i can with no hesitation, i am absolutely blown away by this projector, to the point where i needed to write a review even before i had the chance to properly set it up in a home theater environment. for the record, i only did a cursory set up with the projector sitting on a dresser and shown on a wall about 13' away. the picture itself was about 110" on the diagonal. for my source box, i used an apple tv 4, with both plex (full 1080p bluray encodes) and itunes store movies/shows. i had to get within about 3-4 feet to even begin to make out individual pixels, with 1080p source material. the good: picture quality - again, wow. the picture is absolutely fantastic. while not a true 4k, you'd be hard pressed to tell it by watching. it uses a technology called pixel shifting to create "4k enhancement" picture, and it is *very* effective. though i wasn't able to test them out, HDR and 4k content are bound to be outstanding, if 1080p upscaled looks this good. quiet - a very low fan hum, barely audible. in a proper home theater setup, probably would not even be noticeable. warm(not hot) - a lot of projectors can get quite hot. this one runs significantly cooler, what i would characterize as very mild to the touch. easy set up - out of the box, i had to change very little about the setup, mostly due to lens shift and keystone (due to physical placement of the projector). easy configuration of settings with motorized lens via remote (focus, zoom, lens shift, keystone) the bad: is going to be the main reason behind other expenditures, including a popcorn machine, theater seating, black out curtains, not to mention the movies themselves. more time spent inside watching movies - i'm going to have to force myself to get up occasionally and leave the awesomeness that is this viewing experience to go outside and oh, i don't know, do stuff that doesn't involve watching movies. with this projector that's going to be easier said than done. miscellaneous: needs controlled light for best viewing - dark is fantastic, mid level lighting is really good, but in bright rooms the picture suffers from wash out. probably not the best for typical living room viewing. pretty typical of all but the most expensive (think $10k+ in price) projectors. controlled lighting is fairly important for this epson, but not necessarily a concern for placement in an area such as a home theater. overall: all kidding aside, this projector really is a fantastic piece of home theater equipment. match it with a good quality screen, a decent audio setup, and you've got yourself an incredible home theater setup. the 4k enhancement does a great job of replicating 4k (unlike "faux 4k" of the past) even when upscaling 1080p content. highly, highly recommended, especially at this price point.

Excellent Home Theater Projector For 4K ContentJune 19, 2017
"I might not ever want to go to the movies again." was what my wife told me after we finished watching a movie with this projector. I have a pretty decent 4K tv with HDR that honestly looks pretty darn good, but nothing beats watching a movie on a big screen, I have a protable screen I can set up in my living room to use a projector on. fully extended it is about 100 inches. Setup was incredibly simple and the instructions it came with are great. took me about 15 minutes to set up get into focus and start watching movies. I put in a couple of 4K movies and was wowed by what I saw the colors and details were magnificent. black levels were very good and the bright highlights also looked great. I am very happy with the picture quality. If you are looking for an excellent projector to watch movies at home but dont want to spend 5 or 6k for a higher end model, this Epson projector will work great. Highly recommended!!

Prepare To Be Very PopularJuly 15, 2017
I wasn't sure what to expect while unboxing the Epson Home Cinema 4000 3LCD projector but from the size of the box I anticipated something big. As I revealed the contents I was truly surprised by the beast of a projector within. Measuring about 20 x 18 x 7 and weighing in at about 24 pounds I was impressed on sight. Included in the box was the power cord remote and batteries along with some basic documentation. My only prior projector experience was using basic projectors at work for presentations. This was obviously stepping into a new realm. I already knew the impressive specifications including 3LCD 3 chip technology, HDR, 2,200 lumen brightness, 140,000:1 contrast ratio, and 1080p resolution with 4Ke support. Truly feature packed at this price point. What I couldn't wait for however was what would all these specs mean to the viewing experience. I referenced the quick setup guide to get up and running. I was expecting a complicated setup so I was relieved to instead discover that setup was a breeze. I simply connected a source and powered on the projector. All you really need to do is position your projector, press the pattern button, and then use the remote to focus the image and zoom to your desired screen size. I then switched the source to my 4K blu-ray player. I have a 65 inch Samsung 4K television so I must admit I expected to be somehow disappointed by the Epson. Wrong. I hit play on Deadpool and I was stunned by the brightness, resolution and contrast. Deadpool was suddenly more visually impressive. I was curious about the 4Ke specification. The Epson 4000 doesn't support true 4K but instead uses a 4K enhancement technique of pixel shifting which in effect double the visible pixels. One would be hard pressed to tell the difference and the result is truly impressive. I'm sure due largely to the other strengths of the Epson 4000 with support of HDR10. Contrast level is amazing at 140,000:1 with Epson UltraBlack. The unit itself is also surprisingly quiet. I don't even really ever notice it running. I haven't used it yet but I'm glad this unit also supports 3D. The image quality surpassed that of my 4K tv and now I had something else I had also desired for a long time. A massive screen! You can project an image from 50 inches to 300 inches wide. That's 25 feet! I suddenly had a theater in my family room. I was only projecting on the wall at this point but knew instantly I had to purchase a screen. I decided on a 125” screen. Oh what an experience. As expected the screen took the Epson 4000 to a new level. Next step is to get this baby mounted on the ceiling. One feature Epson failed to mention is impressing your family and friends. Highly recommended.

An excellent projector, but perhaps not best valueJune 25, 2017
I've had the Epson Home Cinema 4000 3LCD for a week, and so far, I've been very impressed with its performance. At a basic level, this projector is a 1080p projector. Yes, it does accept a 4K input, but it's only going to apply some processing and downscale the image to 1080p. I honestly don't know how much of a difference it makes to do this rather than watch content in 1080p, but if you're looking for a projector that displays at a native 4K resolution, you may want to look elsewhere. Despite this, the image is very clear. I have multiple 4K displays in the house, and I don't feel any bit dissatisfied with the image quality I experience with this projector. Keep in mind, I'm projecting onto a 135" screen. The Home Cinema 4000 3LCD also boasts 2200 lumens of brightness as well as HDR. I personally run on ECO mode to save power and reduce the noise from the fan, but your desired settings may differ from mine. In my case, my home theater is in the basement, where it's darker, so I don't need to set the projector's brightness so high. I found that the HDR settings were mostly a miss for me. Some of the settings overexposed whites and really washed out images, while other HDR settings were way too dark. I found that leaving HDR on "Auto" yielded the best results that didn't have washed up whites nor overly dark blacks. There are quite a few settings to allow you to calibrate color and sharpness, but I have left those mostly intact. Instead, I changed the color mode to Dynamic and have been happy with that. The setup process is quite simple, and in my case, I did not ceiling mount the projector. I was able to put the projector in the corner of my room (offset from the center of my screen), and use the projector's lens shift feature to offset the projection, the zoom feature to resize the projection, and the keystone feature to warp the projection to get a perfect square. In terms of latency, I had no issues playing my Nintendo Switch with this projector. I was able to have a very enjoyable experience with excellent detail and sharpness without experiencing delay that hampered my gaming experience. Additionally, 4K content from my 4K Sony Blu Ray player (whether YouTube or 4K Blu Rays) looked great and delivered an experience that I was very happy with. The biggest downside of this projector is that you pay quite a bit for a projector that isn't natively 4K. There are projector options coming very soon that are supposed to deliver an excellent 4K experience near the same cost. If you don't care for 4K content and just want a decent projector, this Epson won't do you wrong. However, it's possible that it's not the best value for a 1080p projector, but it certainly delivers a great cinematic experience, regardless of the price.
