The Projector Reviews Hot Product Award

When the Pro Cinema 4030 was the object of a full-length review, it received our Hot Product Award. The full review goes into all the details but here are a few basics.

Epson Pro Cinema 4030 Highlights

  • Multiple 2D and 3D modes that are brighter than most of the competition
  • Dynamic Iris helps achieve ultra-high contrast performance – very good black levels
  • 2000 lumens claimed – able to tackle media rooms, reasonable living rooms and family rooms, and of course a good home theater
  • Plan on 500-600 lumens post calibration, enough for larger (120″) screens in home theater setups
  • Super-Resolution – Epson’s dynamic detail enhancement feature really can make a difference
  • Newly improved 2.1:1 Fujinon manual zoom lens with lots of vertical and horizontal lens shift
  • Excellent – really long life lamp, and reasonable replacement cost, but since it comes with a spare, you’ve got at least 8000 hours…that’s 20 hours a week for 8 years!
  • 3D glasses are RF and rechargeable, inexpensive 3rd party glasses available
  • Outstanding warranty and support programs

From the Editor: This video was created as a summary of the original, full, in-depth projector review of the Pro Cinema 4030. It was directed and scripted by Lisa Feierman, and features Art Feierman, editor of

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
