Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! Got this for NFL opening day and it really brings the games to an entirely new level. Was a breeze to install and set up was very easy. I was amazed by the clarity of the picture (i am sourcing through verizon fios). I highly recommend to anyone who wants to bring their viewing experience up to theater quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! Wow! I LOVE my Epson Home Cinema 2040 projector. The picture is amazing! I researched extensively to find the perfect projector for my space and lighting, and the Epson was my choice. And it has worked perfectly. Not too bright and not too dim; the projection throw distance was exactly what I needed to fill my 120” screen. Thanks to Epson, I am no longer just watching TV and movies and video games...now I am EXPERIENCING them! Wonderful!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Epson Projector My home theater projector stop working with lines on the screen. We repaired it using some advice from on line. We got it down, and vacuum it, work when it is down on the chair, when we hook up to proper place, stop working. This projector's last about 10 year but use on it is less then 3 year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Projector I bought this projector during Thanksgiving 2016 and I have setup the projector to project 155" of pure cinema. I have been very pleased with it. There is a bit of noise of something that keeps moving inside the projector (not fan) when navigating through e.g Netfix menu's but I don't hear it during a movie. I have set it up in ECO mode and its still bright.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from No Component On VGA Connection Despite the specifications, this projector does not support legacy products which use the component video (red/green/blue) analog connections. Old DVD players, or the Nintendo Wii, for example, would not have support with this projector. It's a solid entry level projector which is nice, but has been out for well over a year and the typo on the website still remains in place, confusing customers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My 1st Projector, WONDERFUL! I have always been skeptical about projectors because I've always been picky about my TV picture quality and every Projector I've seen until now has been less than the quality that I would want. That is... Until now!!! This HC-2040 is AWESOME!!!! It isn't as bright as a 4k tv or even close, but if you know that going in to buying a projector then you will be super happy. I figured that I'd sacrifice image quality for image size. The only thing is, is that I didn't sacrifice any image quality at all. This has a WONDERFUL picture quality. Its just not as bright but if you find a quality projector screen then you will be very happy with this product. I love my HC-2040!!! Thanks Epson!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic picture quality on color and black and white I wanted to give myself a Christmas Present. My old projector (another brand with DLP technology) had lasted nine years and had given good service but it was getting tired. I didn't realize the technology had changed so much until I started exploring what was available in my price range. I am so happy that with the assistance of a great,knowledgeable sales person who helped me firm up my decision I went with the Epson 2040. It was in the price range I was interested in and It has exceeded my expectations by far. I just completed adding more screen space to accommodate the 16:9 format (updating from the old 4:3 aspect ratio). My screen is painted on the wall and I am amazed with the bright colors,crisp focus, detail and the depth of black in images. I am looking forward to many years of happy use of this projector. LCD is the way to go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Completely satisfied Super bright even in Cinema mode. Amazing colours and contrast. We do all our evening TV watching now with the projector on an 80"x45" screen instead of our 42" HD TV.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Projector This is a great projector! Image is crisp and bright - Eco mode is barely dimmer than regular mode. My fear was that the ceiling mount I installed when the room was renovated might be too close to the screen, but this projector was made for it. The screen is about 80" wide and the mount is just over 8' back and this projector fills the width with a 16:9 image when zoomed fully in and nearly fills the width with a 4:3 image when zoomed fully out. The sound of the fan is barely noticeable. Maybe that is a combination of a decent sound system and ceiling mounting, but it sure doesn't warrant the number of times I have seen reviews mentioning it. Its light weight was certainly appreciated when mounting it on the ceiling.
