3500 hour lamp life
2500 lumen (not sure what that is in nits)
wide colour gamut
My first thought was how can this be worth, there are 4K projectors at $1000. Then I saw an amazon review that put two images side by side and realized the more expensive one looked way better. I can't say for certain this one is awesome but keep these things in mind and stay informed.

I read online that this model is sensitive to fluctuations in the current especially in older houses. Solution was to get a surge protector to plug the projector into to prevent this issue. ( A good quality surge protector not the one from Dollarama )

Thanks for this. Now I know more about projection TV technology. One webpage summarized it well "the differences in detail resolution between all of these various 4K implementations are extremely trivial compared to the major issues of contrast, brightness, color balance and saturation, and image stability and clarity that ultimately define the greatness of a home theater picture." This is why this Epson at 1080P can beat other cheaper "4k" projectors.

For projectors I recommend sinewave ups, since it also protects the projector from black and brown outs. It will keep the projector going while you shut it down and its fans will have enough power to cool down. This will avoid heat damage from a power failure to the unit and the bulb.

This is absolutely right, I've had mine plugged into one of these tucked into the ceiling from day one, on a dedicated circuit as well. https://www.amazon.ca/Monster-800-HT-Fi ... B016F73AIK

The 5050UB current "sale" price $4800, doesn't really compare to bang for the buck you get buying 5040 for $1500.
