Epson Home Cinema 4000 Video - 4K Capable Home Theater Projector At A Glance

Posted on December 7, 2017 By Phil Jones

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? Check out the video below to find out!

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.

You’re going to come across a lot of options when searching for your next home theater projector. How do you choose? We understand that the sheer amount of possibilities can be overwhelming, which is why we’re putting out these short videos. These short projector videos are here to serve as a brief overview of each projector, so that you can get an idea of the projectors’ specs, special features, hardware, etc., and decide quickly about whether it’s worth your time to read its review. If the projector doesn’t have what you’re looking for, why bother?

Videos that are part of the Projector Reviews TV channel are created by Projector Reviews Inc. If we review a projector and it wins one of our awards, it becomes eligible for a video summary. Of course, we can only do a limited number of these videos. In some cases, we will choose a projector review to do a video of. In other cases, a request may come from the manufacturer. As we do with the rest of the content on our website, we offer manufacturers Permissions.

With these paid Permissions, manufacturers can post these videos on their own websites, pass them out to their dealers, and use them for other promotional purposes including trade shows and point-of-sale displays in retail stores. These videos are very short versions of the full review. In just a few minutes worth of video we can’t begin to capture all the information in the review, so we call this a video summary.

If this video is positive and enthusiastic about the projector, is simply because the review itself was positive and enthusiastic. We try to make the videos more fun, a bit less dry, with far less technical detail. Enjoy, but also visit the full review for more depth, even the settings that work best. Thanks! -art
