Sold-Out...as of March 9th

Happened to be waiting on a refurbished 5030, 5025 or 4030 to come in on Epson's site but these NOS 4030's popped up yesterday (actually they've been on for the last week or so but at $2699.) along with the 6030s (120,000 vs 600,000 contrast ratio).....These may be a few years old but if one if looking for a great "1080" home theater projector with no aspirations to go 4K these should be the ticket.
Unlike their refurbished units these have the inclusion of an extra bulb ($395), mount ($299?) and 2 pairs of 3D glasses ($139 each) ... just icing on the cake, not to mention 3 year exchange warranty.

"The Bottom Line is this: The Pro Cinema 4030 is a well endowed home projector suitable for a dedicated theater or cave, but it is almost as happy in a family, living, bonus room setup that’s less than perfect."

"What's in the box:

PowerLite Pro Cinema 4030 Projector
Power cord
Ceiling mount
Cable cover
Spare lamp

Remote control w/ AA batteries
CD-ROM w/ user guide link
Two RF 3D glasses
3D glasses charging cable
Quick Setup Guide"

....just to add the 4030 was originally only available in North America through custom installers, which accounts for the lack of reviews but released in Europe as the TW7200 in white and received numerous positive ones....and compared well with the Sony HW40ES, some saying the Epson has better blacks... although both are pretty good.

"Particularly outstanding right off the bat was the projector’s handling of dark scenes. There was a time when LCD was, to be honest, the poor relative where black level response was concerned. But it’s been catching up at a rate of knots in recent times, especially in Epson’s case as the brand has continually refined the speed and effectiveness of its dynamic iris system. And so we find the TW7200 producing a really outstanding combination of black level depth and shadow detail."

https://www.expertreviews.co.uk/tvs-ent ... w/page/0/1

"Darker scenes were a real highlight, and showed an abundance of detail not normally present in projectors at this price. We typically see slightly washed out images and a lack of shadow detail, but there was none of that here. Even with calibration, images will never be as black as on a plasma TV, or even some of the best LED models, but almost nothing gets lost as long as you've dimmed the lights."

This a great deal if you're into projectors. I have a 6500ub that I bought refurbished almost 10 years ago on it's third bulb and it's probably ready to crap out any day now.

I figured I'd wait till it's done and pick up a nice oled but this is really tempting. There's something about front projection that makes it a different experience for films than a backlit screen.

I was looking at this a couple days ago but held back because 4k projectors are getting better every year. Seems a waste to get 1080p than regret not waiting for the 4k to go on sale. Especially with PS5 being 4k.
I was close to pulling the trigger on this one though.

Great deals. If I didn’t already have a 6030 I would buy one now.

I'll be getting my 4030 on Tuesday and my Bro has the BenQ 2050 so we should be able to do a direct comparison but we've done a direct comparison with my Epson 1440 and those 2 were somewhat similar black level wise in a darkened room with white walls, not a bat cave..... the Epson 1440 was IMHO also sharper and of coarse brighter..for darkroom viewing I use a combination of Hoya glass a ND4 and ND2 filters to reduce the 3,800 lumens on the 1440.

and still prefer it over the Benq so I'm expecting the 4030 to be a better with a 120,000 vs 10,000 contrast ratio. We will see.

Also one needs to accommodate the size difference between the BenQ and the Epson 4030 which is much larger.

Same here. I'm still loving my 6030 and I'm still on the original bulb.

IMO, at these prices, I'd wait on a deal for a Optoma 4K projector, great reviews, and the UHD50 went on sale at Costco last year for $1500

I have a 1080p Epson and although it does the trick, I wish I would have just spent the money towards a 4K projector.

But in my case, it's for a dedicated home theater, may not apply to everyone's situation.

Superb projectors, especially the zoom levels. But as others have said would rather wait a little longer for 4k HDR units. Amazon is hitting $1300 regularly now, and under $2k for the better ones.

But these are such good quality at 1080 it's a tough choice! Thanks OP.

These Epson UB (ultra black) projectors produce much blacker blacks than the Optoma 4K projectors, too.

Also lens shift is amazingly helpful.

I wish my eyes were good enough that I could appreciate the difference between 1080P and 4K.

My wallet appreciates that I don’t. :)

I bought the Epson 4000 just a month ago and found that the black is no black enough for me. The 3D has ghosting problem so I contacted the customer service. They eventually sent me a replacement but it did not resolve the ghosting. This clearance is just in time for me. I've ordered the 6030 and will return the 4000. Thank OP.
IMHO, 4K is not that important. I sit 4 meters away from a 110 screen and I don't see 4K improving my experience as much as I expexted. Nor the HDR. The 1080 SDR experience is very much enough to blow your mind.

I was questioning if I should have stretched my budget for the NOS 6030 but without a dedicated home theater (pitch black bat cave) the extra contrast ratio at $500+ was debatable (...probably is : ( .... ) originally I budgeted for a refurbished 4030 at $1028 which I had in my basket for a few days but when it came time to commit it was gone....... so these NOS 4030s with the extra bulb and a pair of 3D glasses were sort a no brainer....but still ????
...and of course today a refurbished 5030 at $1247 is in......

mind you it has probably been in use for a few years.....and no extras included.
