Dead: OUT OF STOCK. guess they only had 1 other one in stock.

---------------------------------------------

So here is an interesting one for those who pick it up before it's out of stock.

Here's the deal:
MSRP: $5999
Sale Price: $1162
Code: HOLIDAYSHIP18
Link: https://epson.com/Clearance-Cente...1H559020-N

Whats in the box (I was surprised that it came with all the accessories):
- Epson LS9600e
- Wireless HDMI box/switch
- 2 Pair of active RF 3D glasses (normally $99 each)
- Remote
- Power cables

Note: Refurbished projects from Epson have full warranty as the original items. 3 years i believe.

Review: https://www.projectorcentral.com/...review.htm

Here's the story:

In 2014/2015 Epson released their first laser driven projector, the LS9600e and the LS10000 for $5999 and $7999 respectively. The main difference between the two were light output and the added 4k enhancement technology that Epson currently uses today. The LS9600e was acclaimed as one of the best 1080p projectors on the market and was compared to top tier Sony and JVC projectors. Things like lens memory, 2.1x zoom, and a laser light source might this an extremely versatile and dynamic projector. . . but perhaps the price tag was a little too high and i don't think the mass market picked it up. Fast forward to today, the current street price is still $3699 on ebay and $3999 on amazon.

Now lets take a look at the price bracket, $1200. At this price you're starting to get into 4k DLPs, so you might ask why would you get this beast instead? Well that depends on your situation:
- Do you have a dark dedicated theater room? (You need it since its not the brightest projector at max zoom)
- Do you value features like powerd lens memory where you can change aspect ratios on the fly?
- Do you enjoy OLED like black levels*? (*fade to black, not necessarily contrast)
- Do you want to never have to pay for a new projector bulb again? (laser is rated at 30,000 hours)

Well at least those are the questions i asked myself, and i answered all them with a yes. The main thing for me was the powered lens memory which the next cheapest projector with this feature is the Epson 4000 (for $1499). I plan on building a 2.35:1 screen and switching between aspect ratios for 16:9 content without having to do anything was very important to me. I figure this is a good projector to get and wait for the price of native 4k laser projectors to come down. I'm not sure i'll be able to get a non laser source projector after this one, the fade to black (at 0 lumens) is oh . . . oh, so nice.

Fast forward to today, and it arrived! I wanted to get mine before posting to make sure it was legit. Here are some picture! (for reference that's a 140" screen)

I'll be sad when and if this becomes out of stock. At 37.5 lbs this is now the heaviest gem i own.

Great find. Thanks for write up too! I have a JVC x590 I bought 2 months ago. Now I'm thinking about selling it and giving this one a try. I'm not in love with the colors and HDR with my 590. Epsons tend to have better colors than JVC. Definitely tempting...

Looks like a solid deal. If I didn't already have a 5030UB I'd consider it. But I would be concerned about the brightness for 3D use.

On second thought, I'll pass. It doesn't offer something I need. What you don't get is the "4K Enhancement" feature found on the LS10000 that provides 4K/UHD signal input capability along with 4K upscaling, using pixel shifting, to present a pseudo 4K/UHD image (i.e., higher resolution than 1080p but less that native 4K/UHD).

I debated but you really need a particular type of setup for this item. It looks like for a 150 inch screen in my room I'd be severely lower in brightness vs. the newer models which throw out WAY more light.

Not that it doesn't look like a really beautiful picture if you have just the right circumstances, which looks like a mid-range zoom (not all the way) and a light controlled room...But I would have concerns over days like football games when I turn low lighting on with a unit like this unfortunately. Does look like a nice unit tho.
