• 2400 lumens color/white brightness instead of 2200
• Contrast ratio of 200,000:1 instead of 140,000:1
Here are some of the features of the 4010:
Power lens which allows you to use your remote to change the focus, zoom, lens shifts instead of manual dials on the projector. Although to be fair, if you have a stationary projector home theater setup, that’s something you set once and forget about. Though I would recommend that you set the lock setting so that someone doesn’t accidentally change it. The unit will also allow you to set it to memory, in one of 10 presets, which you can then recall if you do.
The remote itself is bulky with big buttons that can be backlit. There’s are remote sensors on the front as well as the back of the projector which is convenient no matter if your setup has the projector in front of or behind.
There’re also 3D features which need you to order separate active 3D glasses. I didn’t have those, so I’m wasn’t able to check the projector’s 3D features.
You can connect the projector to your LAN (ethernet) so that you can cast from your computer or mobile device. They have both mobile and desktop apps call Epson iProjection that would allow you to do that.
There are 4 projection modes: front, front ceiling, rear, and rear ceiling. This covers about all projector setup/installation options.
There are 6 color modes in 2D:
• Dynamic - Best for projecting in a bright room
• Natural - Best for projecting in a dark room
• Bright Cinema - Best for projecting in a room with closed curtains
• Cinema - Best for projecting color movies in a dark room
• B&W Cinema - Best for projecting black and white movies in a dark room
• Digital Cinema - Projects using the same color spectrum as digital movie theaters
And a couple in 3D:
• 3D Dynamic - Best for projecting in a bright room
• 3D Cinema - Best for projecting movies in a dark room
A motorized lens which allows you to shift the lens and the projected image up to 96% on the vertical axis and 47% horizontally. You can keystone adjust (manually) vertically up to 30 degrees and zoom the image up to 2.1x. This gives you tremendous placement flexibility.
The projector itself is quite big and hefty at about 25 lbs. The two things that you’re most likely to replace are the air filters ($19) and lamp ($300). Both are easily done yourself without needing any technical knowledge. The lamp life is rated as follows:
• Eco Mode - 5,000 hours
• Medium Mode – 4,000 hours
• High Mode – 3,500 hours
And as always, the brightness of the lamp decreases the longer you use it. If you started out using it in Eco Mode, by the time you get to 2,000 - 3,000 hours you’ll probably have to go to High Mode just to maintain the same brightness.
It’s interesting that these HD enhanced projectors are not truly 4K. They cheat by shifting 1080P to make it look like it’s 4K. Basically, it has 4.15 mil pixels instead of the 8.3 mil pixels of a true 4K projector. However, true 4k projectors usually start around the $5k price point so this offers a good compromise and value. To be honest, I can’t really tell from a picture quality standpoint that these 4010 are not true 4K. The picture is that good. In addition, it will show the entire DCI color space when I have the Color Mode set to Digital Cinema Mode. Streaming 4K UHD with the new Apple TV, I found the colors truly exceptional and lifelike. I also didn’t see any rainbow effects or any other image degradations such as banding/posterization or blocking. It offers a bright, HDR image. Granted, the contrast could be improved, and it needs a dark room, the darker the better. Again, you don’t really get better contrast specs until you move significantly up in price.
One bit of a warning here. It looks as though the HDMI ports are still the old 1.4a standard, even though it’s supporting HDCP 2.2, and thus not able to support higher frame rates of the newer 2.0. It’s capped at 24p/24hz when you are using the 4K HDR. What this means is that you should probably pick another projector if you want to have the better gaming experience that a 60p/60hz projector provides.
I find that the unit throws off quite a bit of heat. Both the intake and exhaust are on the front of the unit. The intake is on the right and exhaust on the left when facing the front of the projector. Depending on the lamp mode: Eco Mode – 283 Watts and High Mode – 373 Watts, you will need ventilation if you want to be comfortable in the same room. I guess this is par for the course when it comes to projectors.
Ultimately, the Epson’s Home Cinema 4010 is a great value for those who want a home projector able to accept 4K UHD sources. You will have to pay significantly more and move up to the next tier if you want something with more resolution, contrast, and brightness. But at this price class, it offers the best picture quality and features you’re going to find today.
It only has 2K pixel output, and only support 4K HDR source at 30Hz. It's good enough for movies, but not good for 4K HDR games at 60 fps.
The first surprise to me was the size of the box - this is a big projector. I'm used to the small portable Epsons that you toss in your luggage for a business trip. The 4010 isn't that - it's huge. Of course, this isn't a big deal in a home theater setting, size isn't much of an issue - once you mount the projector, you mostly leave it alone. Still, the Epson definitely takes the prize for the largest projector I've ever had. Once you get over the large size, it does seem to be very different than the Epsons I've used in the past: the construction quality, fit and finish definitely shouts "refined home theater" rather than "road warrior".
The large size does have one obvious benefit though: this is a really quiet projector. There are tons of air vents around the large chassis, and the result is barely audible fan noise, even if you sit close to the projector.
You'll of course want to mount the projector carefully, using a solid mount that has no issues with the size and weight of the projector. My current projector is in a Da-Lite motorized mount rated for 300 pounds, but I wanted to mount the 4010 without dismantling the current unit in case the Epson wasn't everything I hoped it would be. I turned to an older ceiling mount instead, and didn't have any trouble mounting the big Epson.
Once mounted, the setup is pretty simple thanks to the motorized lens controls. There's a wide 2.1x zoom range that gives you a lot of flexibility in being able to fill the screen from lots of positions, and in just a few seconds, I was able to home in on the perfect picture for my screen. Most people will probably just connect the HDMI 2.0 (with HDCP 2.2) to some sort of AV receiver or video switch, although there's an older HDMI 1.4 connector as well as a VGA port for computer use. In my setup, a single HDMI cable does the trick, also making for a clean installation.
The remote works well and seems to be high quality, but I didn't use it much after initial setup. I have my home theater equipment connected to a Logitech Harmony setup that lets me use Amazon Alexa to control everything, and I'm happy to say that I had no issues integrating the Epson 4010 into this setup.
As for image quality, the Epson simply stunned me at how good it is. Images are all incredibly razor sharp and crisp, and the HDR colors are among some of the best I've seen in any theater, regardless of cost. Blacks are good, and whites are pure and vivid without the stark, artificial look I sometimes see in other projectors. I've always been skeptical of the various 4K shift technologies, but this projector has made me a believer - it's definitely better than any 1080p projector I've seen, and although I don't have one to test side-by-side, it seems at least as good as most of the native 4K projectors I've auditioned, even though it's a small fraction of the cost.
Of course, the Epson - like any projector - looks best when displaying top quality source signals. I have a few 4K Ultra-HD HDR discs, and they are truly stunning on the Epson 4010...I'd probably say that they're the best images I've ever seen in my own home. But sometimes overlooked, I also like the way the Epson performs with lower quality sources. My cable provider (Spectrum) seems to transmit over-compressed, low bitrate signals, and yet it still looks reasonable on the Epson on a 100" screen.
My current system is a 3-year old, high quality JVC 1080p projector paired with a 1.3 gain 100" Stewart screen in a dedicated and fairly dark 24x20' room. It's been professionally calibrated, mounted precisely, and my source equipment is among the best, so I know I'm getting peak performance out of it. In my side-by-side testing with the Epson, the results were fairly surprising to me - especially when you consider that this Epson projector costs less than a third of what my JVC projector did when new.
The Epson is also notably brighter than my JVC, and this also makes a tremendous difference. My JVC is a wonderful projector, but at 2000 lumens (probably less on the now three year old bulb), it's a bit on the dim side. The 2400 lumen Epson is much better Although I can't help but wish for 3000-4000 lumens, in even a semi-darkened theater, 2400 lumens is plenty for a screen in the 100" range.
Overall, Epson has a winner here that can compete with most any home theater projectors regardless of price. It's incredible that you can have such a high quality unit for under $2000, and hopefully that puts terrific home theater within reach of a lot more people. If you're shopping for your home theater projector, there's a lot to like about the Epson, and unless you're willing to spend several times more, it's hard to imagine a better choice. This is one product I have no trouble giving my highest recommendation.
