  • Q: Will this projector display 4K content from a Roku Premier +???  (2 Answers)

    By Eddie 

    • Best answerThe projector will scale it and use its 4k-like technology to make it look as 4k as possible. Epson calls this 4K Enhancement. Projector central says: The key to understanding why the 4K Enhancement looks so impressive is realizing that there's only so much detail the human eye can actually resolve. The 5040UB's pixel-shifting technology increases the apparent resolution of the picture by enough to come close to that limit. Of course it depends on how close you like to sit to the screen. And it also depends on the type of subject matter -- it is easier to see resolution differences between the 5040UB and native 4K projectors when viewing high resolution graphics and text documents than it is with video.

  • Q: Will this projector work 15 feet away from the screen hanging from ceiling with a 140" screen?  (2 Answers)

    By Rich 

    • Best answerYes, it works fine at that distance with that screen for a 2:35 screen, and should work fine for 16:9 as well - the remote controlled zoom will let you go from significantly smaller to significantly larger at that distance with no apparent difference in picture quality. It has an excellent set of lenses, but you're going to want bluray quality or better for that size screen, because dvd quality is just not going to look good.

  • Q: Has the power supply issue with this 5040UB model been corrected?  (2 Answers)

    By DiscoStu 

    • Best answerI hope so. I've had mine 4 months without issue so far. I did purchase the geek squad warranty just in case. I've heard that if you go through Epson they send you a refurbished unit and that best buy geek squad will send you a brand new one as an exchange. Picture is amazing btw.

  • Q: What is the recccomended throw distance and screen size for Epson 5040ub  (2 Answers)

    By Nicolas 

    • Best answerWe just purchased and installed this projector and we are projecting on a 110" screen which is truly crystal clear. It could easily handle 120" or maybe even slightly larger than that. It has proven to be a pretty amazing projector for the price after using it for the past couple of weeks, so hopefully this feedback helps!
