Some notes for potential buyers:
  • Epson doesn't allow returns on refurbs. They will replace it if there are any issues within 30 days. After that it is normal warranty procedure and you may have to to send it in. They still replace the whole unit though.
  • Epson is notoriously bad at refurbishing. Great prices but inspect your projector as soon as you can. Some people have to go through a few to get a good one and you want to try to do this within the 30 days of first purchase. I needed to send my first one back.
  • The HDMI jack on this is limited to ~10Gbps so no 4K HDR @ 60hz. But you can get 4k HDR @ 30hz/24hz as long as you have the right streaming box or BD player to do it. Some streamers require 4k/60hz to do HDR. Apple TV 4K is my recommendation for most seamless install
Some tips on things to look for when inspecting:
  • Check the housing/buttons for any major defects (it should look like new)
  • Check the lens for any physical defect
  • Make sure the auto lens cover fully opens and closes when turning on and off the projector
  • Display the built in alignment pattern and shoot the projector on anything large and light colored then:
    • Check alignment/sharpness up close, a lot of color convergence issues can be fixed with the built in controls
    • Check the full range of the motorized lens, focus and zoom
  • Look at solid white and solid black images for any major issues, particularly dust blobs on an all black screen
  • Look at text on a black background and make sure there aren't halos or smears around the text. It's not like an LCD TV, there shouldn't be blooming
  • And lastly, what happened to me, check various content to make sure you don't get any strange color banding/blooming. I got it with blues.
If you're curious, here's how to get to the service menu. Here you can see how many total hours the projector has and how many bulb changes it has had. It should always come with a brand new bulb.
Quote :
To view the After Service (AS) menu, press and hold the Menu button on the remote or the projector's control panel for at least 8 seconds, then release it. Within 4 seconds of releasing the menu button, press the ESC button twice.

HDMI 1.4 with HDCP 2.2. Yeah, not great for gaming on latest consoles. But a great projector for movies. It can game at 4K SDR
DLP vs. 3LCD.... I'll take the Epson's 3LCD.
Yup. My Bad.

so this box has an HDMI 2.2 port which can only support 10gbps throughput if i am reading the OP correctly? i am thinking that kind of kills this in terms of very good 4k hdr support (assuming xbox series x will poopoo that).

These suffer from the same power supply issue as the 5040's. That said, with the 2 year warranty you should be good. I don't think the deal is hot though. IF the 5040 [epson.com] was in stock it would be a better deal, and even that has been a lot cheaper in the past.

I'm all fine being corrected myself, but I believe you're mistaken: the power supply issue struck the Epson 4000 and 5040, which was supposedly rectified on the 4010 and 5050 respectively.

That's actually not true. They share the same chassis as the 5050UB. You are thinking of the 4000 and 4040

If anyone has access to a time machine, can you go back 7 months ago and grab me a brand new one for $1500? Thank you.

Sort of off topic: Optoma UHD-38 (4000 lumens) and UHD-35 (3500 lumens) are both available on Amazon $1400 and $1300 respectively. Both are great for gaming and have similar specs 4k (faux just like Epson) HDR, HLG, 1000000:1 contrast ratio, 240 Hz and 4.3 ms for gaming. I know the Epson 4xxx, 5xxx and 6xxx have best pictures, for less than $1500, shouldn't we go with the new Optomas?

Epson's brightness is for all colors, unlike DLP pjs that's only for peak white.

I recommend the Optoma if you get RGBRGB wheel with 6x speed.
