These have frequent power failures and I don't see what kind of warranty Epson gives on refurbs. This looks like a hard pass.
psu issues are hit or miss


COMES WITH A FULL 2 YEAR WARRANTY.

At this price, isn't the Benq HT3550 ($1440 at amazon) a better choice? Native 4K and HDMI 2.0b and relatively good reviews from users.

Yep, I think so.

It depends on your needs/wants.

The HT3550 has significantly lower contrast, not as bright, less features, lower quality lens, and you'll see rainbows if you're susceptible to them.

imo the only reason I would only buy the HT3550 over the Epson is if you need 4k@60 (newer hdmi chipset), otherwise the 5040 is far superior in every category.


Here are two detailed reviews of them where you can draw your own conclusions:

Epson 5040 - https://www.projectorreviews.com/...or-review/


BenQ HT3550 - https://www.projectorreviews.com/...ll-review/

If you go to the last page of the HT3550 review they actually give you side by side images vs the 5040 model fwiw.

OK, maybe you're talking me into it. By 2 years the PSU issues should be obvious. . . I'm still doing well with my 8-year-old 1080p Epson projector (and I still have a spare bulb). I was hoping to hold out for a laser true 4K in a few years but this might be a reasonable upgrade up in that plan.

The 2yr warranty is rock solid too. Epson is super easy to deal with if you have any issues.


For $1151 nothing comes close to what the 5040 gives you in performance/quality.

Wouldn't a UHD60 be a better option in this price range?

The 5040 is much much brighter than the Optoma; so if that's a concern (using the projector with some ambient light for example) the 5040 is a better choice.

The UHD60 has worse brightness, worse contrast, worse black levels...so there's that.

I have been checking the Epson clearance page everyday for a year waiting for a refurbished 1080P projector to drop in the $400 price range and I don't understand why it hasn't happened yet. Epson wants $588 for a refurbished 2100 and Walmart has the 2100 new for $549. Come on Epson have a sale at your clearance center!

Great price...if it were a few bucks cheaper I would actually consider upgrading from my 5030ub that will need a new lamp soon. Does the 5050 have the same HDMI limitation? Probably doesn't matter as I'm holding out for a true 4k option.
