4K home theatre projectors are becoming ever more popular. Because projection technology has evolved so fast and so well, it’s now possible to get a movie theatre-level experience at home. So if the last time you experienced a projector was high school or that really dull presentation at a trade show, it’s time to take another look, because projectors are clearer, sharper, more vibrant and colourful and more dynamic than ever.

At the same time, there’s lots out there when it comes to projectors for sale. Do they all live up to the hype? I can’t speak for everything, but I did have a chance to use a new 4K home theatre projector at home recently. The Epson Home Cinema 4010 is a 4K UHD projector made for home applications. Let’s take a look at how it stacks up.

The first thing to note here is the size of this projector. It’s HUGE (check out the video review to see how it compares to me; it’s as wide as my shoulders!). It’s easily twice the size of most projectors I’ve tested out. I’m not sure why. It’s also heavy. You’ll need a good solid platform for it, and plenty of space.

Here, I’ve just got it here on an adjustable stand I got from Valencia Home Theatre. I’m using it with the 106” EluneVision Elara NanoEdge projector screen, which I really like and recommend if you’re going for a professional looking home theatre, as opposed to using a white wall, or a sheet. I got it on Best Buy’s Marketplace, and you can read my review of the Elara Nano Edge screen here.

Epson 4010 Features: 4K & HDR

Before we get too far, a quick primer on 4K video – it’s higher resolution video. 4K TV is the highest resolution you can get in a TV (not counting 8K for right now); it’s four times more detailed than even today’s standard HDTVs, so it makes lines ultra sharp, and creates a video picture so real you’ll want to touch it.
