The Epson Home Cinema 4000 is the lower-cost version of the $2,699 Epson Home Cinema 5040UB, which is quickly becoming industry standard. The two projectors differ in only a few ways, as they are virtually identical in both look and feature set. The Epson HC4000 is a $1995 street price, but is currently being sold on Epson’s website and other online retailers for $1799, making this projector a great value for those who are looking for a 4K capable projector.
This 2,200 lumen projector measured well over claim, as Epson projector’s tend to do. This makes it ideal for those who always have some ambient light in their room, versus those who have a dedicated home theater that can be fully darkened. It is a 1080p pixel shifter, meaning it doubles the pixels to create a truly sharp image. The HC4000 has a motorized lens – a definite plus for those who are ceiling mounting or use a cinemascope screen for widescreen movies, as it allows for easy switching between films and HDTV content.
The Home Cinema 4000 won an award in our Best Home Theater Projectors Report for 2017 for Best in Class: Value in the $1000-$2000 class. It has also been featured in this year’s Holiday Guide to Six Great Home Theater Projectors Under $2000 for this same reason. Will this projector make your short list?

The video features video clips from “Ultimate Wave Tahiti” by Stephen Low Productions and photos of the projector in action. The video clips give a little taste of what the projector can do – it has excellent color, right out of the box, and even better once calibrated! The photos from The Hunger Games, Passengers, and The Fifth Element all look sharp and really “wow.” Check it out to see if this award-winning projector is right for you, and, if it’s a possible contender – check out its review.
