Epson Home Cinema 4000 4K Capable HDR Projector Under $2000

The Epson Home Cinema 4000 is the lower-cost version of the $2,699 Epson Home Cinema 5040UB, which is quickly becoming industry standard. The two projectors differ in only a few ways, as they are virtually identical in both look and feature set. The Epson HC4000 is a $1995 street price, but is currently being sold on Epson’s website and other online retailers for $1799, making this projector a great value for those who are looking for a 4K capable projector.

This 2,200 lumen projector measured well over claim, as Epson projector’s tend to do. This makes it ideal for those who always have some ambient light in their room, versus those who have a dedicated home theater that can be fully darkened. It is a 1080p pixel shifter, meaning it doubles the pixels to create a truly sharp image. The HC4000 has a motorized lens – a definite plus for those who are ceiling mounting or use a cinemascope screen for widescreen movies, as it allows for easy switching between films and HDTV content.

The Home Cinema 4000 won an award in our Best Home Theater Projectors Report for 2017 for Best in Class: Value in the $1000-$2000 class. It has also been featured in this year’s Holiday Guide to Six Great Home Theater Projectors Under $2000 for this same reason. Will this projector make your short list? Check out the video below to find out!

The video features video clips from “Ultimate Wave Tahiti” by Stephen Low Productions and photos of the projector in action. The video clips give a little taste of what the projector can do – it has excellent color, right out of the box, and even better once calibrated! The photos from The Hunger Games and The Fifth Element all look sharp and really “wow.” Check it out to see if this award-winning projector is right for you, and, if it’s a possible contender – check out its review.

You’re going to come across a lot of options when searching for your next home theater projector. How do you choose? We understand that the sheer amount of possibilities can be overwhelming, which is why we’re putting out these short videos. These short projector videos are here to serve as a brief overview of each projector, so that you can get an idea of the projectors’ specs, special features, hardware, etc., and decide quickly about whether it’s worth your time to read its review. If the projector doesn’t have what you’re looking for, why bother?


Patrick Schilling says:

Hey! I am currently looking for an 4k projector and have been looking at the optoma uhd550 or the uhd60 and got a look at the epson 4000/7300. Do you think think the epson 4000/7300 handles better than the optomas? And if i watch your 5040ub in depth review i can get a feel for how the 4000/7300 will handle ? – the contrast but my fix for that would be a gray screen 🙂

David Hindman says:

Any idea what the new 1.11 firmware fixes/enhances on the 5040ub or 6040ub?

A great deal for someone in the market for a new projector for the Family Room. I’m waiting for their next iteration of the UB series. 5050UB? Perhaps there will be enough 4K content available by then to justify the upgrade. Meanwhile, my 5020UB keeps me happy. Have you ever thought about putting your full reviews on video?

Tolerator says:

Have you done any calibration on the Epson 4000? I’m looking to find some settings that others are using other than those out of the box.
