[Epson.ca] Epson Pro Cinema 4030 and 6030 (clearance, not refurbs)
- Deal Link:
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. https://www.projectorreviews.com/epson/ ... -a-review/
"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
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."

"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."
