What customers say about "Key Specs"
Epson Home Cinema 4000 3LCD Home Theater Projector with 4K Enhancement
  • This is called a "home cinema" for a reason. It is huge. It is bright. It has amazing features like 4k and 3D. It converts most lesser video to 1080p.
  • The up-scaling ability better than I thought it would be. Makes 1080p look very close to 4k.
  • 4K enhancement ability and able to accept 4K signals and output them at a perceivable 4k using pixel shift technology.
  • The projector delivers a bright, high-contrast image. I project it against a white wall, nothing special, and from a distance of about 11'. That gives me a picture of somewhere around 100 inches.
  • The functions are ok. The picture isn't true 4K, but it is good nevertheless.
Optoma UHD60 4K Ultra High Definition Home Theater Video Projector
  • Optoma resolution is just great, so happy with it. 4K really is razor sharp, of course, blacks could be better. But by no means a dealbreaker, depending on how fussy you are.
  • HDR generally works surprisingly well..especially with gaming, and my fave UHD discs
  • HDR auto mode is fantastic. It recognizes HDR and enables HDR mode with a little HDR symbol for a couple seconds in the top right.
  • I love the projector when it comes to 4K content especially UHD Blu-Ray.
  • Light around the image. There is a 3-6" (depending on your screen size, my screen is 120") empty light bleed around the entire image. I don't have black borders on my screen and the light ring is noticing and distracting.

What customers say about "Display"
Epson Home Cinema 4000 3LCD Home Theater Projector with 4K Enhancement
  • Colors are vivid and contrast is excellent. Performs good in ambient light but like all projectors really excels in the dark.
  • The blacks this thing throws are insane. The contrast level for this is 140k:1 and everything I've projected up has looked astounding as a result.
  • The native 3D looks really good (the necessary glasses are sold separately; I was able to get a compatible pair for a good price) and the conversion mode works surprisingly well itself.
  • Colors are vibrant, great contrast ratio, and a much QUIETER fan situation.
Optoma UHD60 4K Ultra High Definition Home Theater Video Projector
  • Images are stunning, to say the least! Fantastic colors, good blacks in a dark room. Sharpness that is hard to find anywhere at this price.
  • The color is outstanding, easily the richest color of any of the 4 projectors I've owned. The accuracy is about the best I've seen in a projector.
  • Picture is clear, clean, and bright enough for a dark room environment. Color is very nice in both HDR and SDR, and the detail forthe image is fantastic.
  • Black levels are decent but not as good as you would get on a tv or higher end projector but still very serviceable.
  • Bad black levels for the price and thus contrast ratio.

What customers say about "Features"
Epson Home Cinema 4000 3LCD Home Theater Projector with 4K Enhancement
  • Probably my favorite feature of this 4000 is the electronic lens shift. This is a feature missing from my previous Epson 2040.
  • Fully-remote-controlled, motorized lens shift (vertical and horizontal), zoom and focus.
  • The best feature besides the better picture quality is the ability to adjust the lens with the remote rather than fighting with the mount.
  • Whoever invented the "lens shift" feature is going to be on my Christmas Card list. It allows you to shift the optics just enough so that you an eliminate keystoning if the projector is mounted higher or lower than it ideally should be.
  • The lens shift feature made setting the projector up a breeze. So pleased. Movies at 110" inches and nearly 4K is incredible.
  • Without audio, it is a brick. That little fact is not mentioned anywhere it the advertising and even hard to find in the manual.
Optoma UHD60 4K Ultra High Definition Home Theater Video Projector
  • RBE, or lack there-of. The RGBRGB wheel is much better than the wheel used in the Acer I tried.
  • Gaming on it using ps4 pro is very good but it really shines when gaming on pc 4k/60 4:4:4 with ultra settings ( i have 2 1080ti's so 60fps constant is no problem).
  • The UI is simple and intuitive. You'll figure out where everything is within moments.
  • It is SUPER quiet. Even pumping out all the high tech goodness and bright settings, it's quiet. Love it!
  • Light bleed above projector. There is a bit of light that is above the projector on the ceiling, with a black ceiling in a dedicated home theater this probably is no big deal. In my room with a white ceiling, it was annoying.
  • SDR to HDR conversion is horrible. I don’t plan on using it. The colors become too bright and the rainbow effect is horrible.
  • Cheap plastic and very cheep feeling controls ( focus, zoom etc )

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Epson Home Cinema 4000 3LCD Home Theater Projector with 4K Enhancement
  • One feature that I thought was neat is that it can connect wirelessly to your network.
  • We mounted this on the ceiling of a conference room.
  • Was very easy to ceiling mount, we use on a 120" screen, connected to our AV receiver fantastically.
Optoma UHD60 4K Ultra High Definition Home Theater Video Projector
  • Plenty of connectivity , optical audio output is a nice plus.
  • Even the VGA input rendered a nice picture but in 4:3 ratio of course.
  • Setup is straightforward, the menus are simple and easy to understand. While both HDMI ports are HDMI 2.2 compliant I had issues with HDMI 1 vs HDMI 4K.
  • Only 1 HDMI 2.0 port. The other one is HDMI 1.4a
