This is a good price but it's been the same everywhere since January. The bulb rebate is good through 3/31 so I would expect the price to remain low at least that long. My speculation is they are clearing inventory for the release of it's successor, the 5050ub. Keep in mind this unit only has 10 gbps hdmi so can't handle 4k HDR 60 fps like from video games or Netflix streaming if that is important to you.

It's not even worth 1k... Those bulb projectors are a dying breed and resale value for these is will be horrible in 2 years.

What features? I would rather buy full HD projector for 1/3 of the cost today to use for a year and then we will have affordable 4k laser projectors at the same price as this. This projector will not be worth much used next year

This seems to be a specs vs. reality argument. But first of all, this line of projectors by Epson has excellent features that many find really valuable. First, it has amazingly flexible lens shift. In both directions, up and down, left and right. I've installed many projectors. It just isn't always possible to line things up correctly for a number of reasons. Lens shift allows huge flexibility in getting things right. And the Epson has so much, it allows for all sorts of otherwise unavailable setup solutions. Second, it has powered zoom and focus. No touching the rings. All done from the remote...and it can memorize presets for these settings. So you can actually switch between 16:9 and 2.35:1, for example. This allows the use of an ultra widescreen that can easily be used for standard 16:9 content.

So anyway, those are the features we're talking about! Find me a projector at that price with those features and that good of a picture. There isn't one. If you're serious about your setup and want that flexibility and ability to use 2.35:1 in fullscreen, and but you have no desire to upgrade ALL components to support 4k@60Hz, this is a great deal. I investigated 4k and decided that the increased cost to get a new receiver, new cables, new BluRay AND new projector didn't makes sense right now. I'll wait until real 4k is available at a more reasonable cost. But for those who can afford the $2k and want everything I described above, this is a great projector.

No one knows when it will come out except Epson employees maybe. The manual is available online if you search, or you can look up TW-9400 which is the European version which has been out since last fall. The main difference will be the full 18 gbps HDMI port, otherwise minor tweaks. Speculation is that MSRP will be $2999 like when the 5040 first came out which is a pretty big premium to pay for a full speed HDMI port.

Care to explain what those features are? And what projector has those features.

This projector have the best contrast and black levels unless you want to spend 2x and get a jvc.

There is only one other projector that offers 4k wide color gamut support in this price range.

It also has a dynamic iris, lens memory and a host of other features that no other projector in this price range offers.

The lens and optics is excellent and top of the line, especially for what you pay.

It also has some limitations, I hate how the hdmi board doesnt support 18gbps.

That's funny. My first screen was a 135" grey Silver Ticket. I sold it and bought a white Silver Ticket, same size. I'll never buy grey again. The white is way more enjoyable to me.

You had a different projector with the grey screen??? You need more brightness on a grey screen.

My screen has really good picture. I have no complaint. I can watch tv show with the light on and it's almost as good as with the light off. For movie, you do need the light off because most movies are very dark
