    Epson 2040 reviews

    PowerLite Home Cinema 2040 Full HD 3D-Ready 3LCD Home Theater Projector is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Projector I recently bought this Projector for our home theater project from B&H Photo & Video.Their service was great. 2 day expedited service for no extra charge.Had the Projector installed professionally. Picture quality is great with very good colors. No ghost images as has been reported with some of the projectors. Contrast is very good and 2200 lumens lamp is really powerful as pictures are very bright. I had read some negative comments about the noise level but I did not find it annoying. Although I had it connected to surround sound, its built in speaker is pretty good and if your surround sound fails, built in speaker can do the job.My installer had told me that projectors come from $ to $ but if you buy something in between, you should be OK. I feel for the price it is a great projector and would recommend it to anyone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Projector and Awesome Service!!!! First of all I would like to thank B&H for their level of service and quick delivery. Thank You so much, I love you guys and I will continue to buy products from B&H. That includes my family and friends. As far as the projector goes. It's simply stunning. I am speachless the quality of picture this projector puts out. I have You really need to go into the 2K range to beat this projector I feel. I am very picky so I tried a number of projectors and this was my favorite one. I watch a lot of TV and Movies on Netflix and YouTube. I am very pleased with my decision. I would recommend this product over and over again. The picture that I have attached is projected on a wall that is 12' feet high and 16' feet wide. regular paint, not even screen paint yet. Like I said I am in love :) B&H thank you very much.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from One of the best projectors for the price This little projector has an incredibly bright, colorful image. With very low latency and enough lumens for a small room, it easily replaces a TV. Pros: Great colors, low latency (works great on games), extremely bright image, small form factor, decent fan noise on economy mode, great auto keystone, decent speaker. Cons: Fan is rather noisy on bright mode, but I find a lot of projectors sound like small airplanes on their best settings. And now for the most frustrating adjustable vertical shift. Epson lens offset is weird, so if you have a small room with a 100' screen (say 10-12 feet from projector), the projector either needs to be at head level while sitting on a couch, or 8-12 from ceiling. Since the room I use has a ceiling fan, the only other viable option is the mid height. Now the auto keystone corrects nicely if you place it anywhere else or not a 1:1 angle, but then you get the light spillover on the wall. You could theoretically place it anywhere and correct the image, but I don't like the spill. Overall, I am very pleased with the this projector and definitely would recommend it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great projector! I use the product in a small room (office). It give me a sharp image with solid dynamic range and superb colors. Yes, the blacks levels could go a bit deeper at times, but it is so close to what I would consider perfect that I would hardly complain about it. All and all, amazing product at an amazing price!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Projector This is my first projector purchase and the quality is amazing on a 120 screen. I was hesitant when I read the reviews on clarity but seeing it first hand has made me a believer. Projectors can be as clear/clearer than Plasmas/LED/LCD TVs.
