But what I want to focus on here are the differences between the models, since that information is a bit hard to find.
When I search for this model, Amazon also suggests the following...So I'll save you some research.
Epson Home Cinema 730HD, HDMI, 3LCD, 3000 Lumens $399 (refurb)
Epson Home Cinema 730HD, HDMI, 3LCD, 3000 Lumens $499
Epson Home Cinema 740HD, HDMI, 3LCD, 3000 Lumens $599 <--THIS MODEL
Epson Home Cinema 1040, HDMI, 3LCD, 3000 Lumens $799
The 730HD is the earlier model of this projector. It has slightly higher! resolution (1280x800 instead of 1280x720). I figure they went to the 720 for the newer so the image could be 1:1 for a 720P image without any interpolation that could affect image quality. But I doubt the average person could see a difference. The other difference is that the 730 contrast ratio is 1:12,000 and the newer 740 is 1:15,000
Short story - for $200 LESS you could get a refurb 730 (or $100 less for new) and have virtually the same projector.
For $200 MORE you could have the 1080P version of this projector (1280x1200 interpolated to 1280x1080).
Is 1080P worth the extra money? Probably not. Unless you sit very close to your projection screen. Then you will notice a difference (the 1080p version also has a max image size of 300 inches vs 320 for the 720p versions if this matters to you)
Would I buy one of these epson projectors? YES! They are an amazing value for the price, well designed, clear menus, lots of options, and a nice picture. The question is which one fits your budget/needs the best. Hopefully this will be helpful as you choose.
So that is my use case. LOTS of ambient light. And in that context, this unit does a great job. I'm particularly fond of the color balance - it doesn't wash out colors like my other DLP. It does a great job on watching sports, or doing business presentations. I haven't tried it on a dark movie scene yet, but can say it washes a bit grey on blacks. I find that totally acceptable in exchange for the bright picture in my ambient light situation, though I can understand if someone with a perfect dark room might prefer a DLP or something with better black levels.
As to configuration. Very inexpensive. I'm using the VIVO 100" screen, 1.1 gain, available for $79 at last check on Amazon. And, I purchased a Bluesky HD1080p 3D HDMI Audio Extractor Splitter to let me split out the Audio from the rest of the HDMI signal and skip the speakers on the projector. This was $21. I haven't yet used the speakers on the projector, but at 2W I assume they are what others have reviewed - useless. That said, listening to the fan, it is not bothersome. I can hear it, but not at all over a normal level of TV audio so not a worry that I can see.
Last photo below. This is a 30-degree angle from center, taken on my phone camera. It looks a bit more washed out in the photo than it does live; it is a great picture. Totally fine and pleasurable to watch a basketball game in broad daylight in what is just about the worst ambient light situation I can think of, other than sitting outside in the sunlight. Given the size, I prefer it to my 65" TV, and don't feel like I'm missing whatever color / clarity I've lost vs. the LED-LCD TV unit I have.
Sharing all of this, because I agonized over this decision and must have read 300 reviews and 40 articles or so before taking the plunge. I haven't experienced all those other options, but can say for the price point (and really for even a higher price point) I'm thrilled with this setup for my room. Hope this review helps you out!
Set up was easy, plug the HDMI cable from your apple tv, roku, amazon fire and chromecast and put your sound source into your receiver (or not, it has pretty decent sound on its own) aim the picture, focus and sit back!
I had my Epson on the right side of the dresser and needed the picture to be on the opposite wall but on the left. Not sure it would work but thanks to this think called Vertical Keystone, the picture was placed perfectly on that wall -- it's baffling!
The picture OMG the picture. It was stunning. I had no idea how remarkable this technology had become. My wall is a darker cream color and the colors that came through were amazingly untouched. There are a few cool settings to help you make the picture clearer.
It does have a bit of fan noise but it's important because this guy gets hot!!
