I think this is the lowest it's been. Quite a deal

No this isn't native 4K but it is twice as sharp as 1080p and it is noticeable. 4K DLP projectors will be sharper but have worse contrast. This Epson 3800 is measured around 2000:1 native contrast and most DLP 4K projectors peak around 1000: native contrast. It also has a dynamic iris which boosts contrast even further. This projector is very bright and can do well with some ambient light, I recommend getting a grey screen with it to maintain contrast and drop black levels. If you are trying to use it more as a dedicated theater projector then I still recommend using a grey screen since it's black floor is kinda high and it's just a bit too bright for a true dark room theater. Only go white if you are projecting on a massive 150"+ plus screen.

This projector also has a ton of lens shift which means placement is super easy and there isn't a need to worry about using keystone correction and distorting the image.

There are reports of this projector being a bit out of focus when using a lot of lens shift. Some users notice it and others don't care. When I demoed it in my space I only noticed it when looking for it. If you are using this with a HTPC and viewing a lot of text then it would be more of a concern.

I have this and it's a great projector. For the gamers out there, this has some of the lowest input lag of 4k projectors.

I'm only seeing the 3200 on amazon. Seems like the 3800 is sold out?

I'd actually had all three and I think the noise is pretty good on medium and great on Eco. All of them loud on High and would need to be a decent distance from the seating position or in a hush box.

I have never had a projector that didnt have an auto lense shutter.
Will leaving the lense uncovered 100% of the time cause internal dust issues?
Or do just need to clean it more often than you would with a projector that has a shutter?

Second question / concern is that I want a projector I can watch during the day with the window shutters closed.
I would love to go with the 4040 or 4010 instead of the 3800, but I am concerned that the 40's wont be bright enough during the day.
But the weird part is that at Projector Central it says the FL for both 40's (55 and 48 FL) is higher than the 3800 (43 FL).
Makes no sense to me since the 3800 is 600-700 more lumens.

Would love to test the 40 and return but there are no returns on the refurb.
So I am leaning towards this projector only for that reason.

Thoughts or comments?

Epson website says this projector has 100,000:1 contrast.

I just got the 4040 (refurb) for $1k. It's bright enough with all of the shutters closed. The 4040 has contrast ratio 160,000:1, while the 3800 has 100,000:1, probably not a big difference. The 4040 is replacing an older Optoma HD27E with 3400 lumens full brightness, but at the 2300 lumens, the 4040 is a LOT BRIGHTER!!!
