The Fan is so loud!
from Indiana, United States
Comments about Epson Powerlite Home Cinema 1040 Full HD 1080p 3LCD Projector:
This is my 2nd projector, and I decided to go cheaper this time, big mistake!! I'm sending this back and buying one in the $1300-1500 price range like I did last time. The fan on this one is so loud, it's too loud and hard to block out. The last one I owned we never heard a fan. You get what you pay for. The picture was fine/good so i'm giving it a fair review. Maybe the fan noise wouldn't bother some people.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

For the price it can't be beat. I hooked it to my DVD player and a small sound bar. We use it on an outdoor screen. Grandkids and friends love outdoor movies.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 1040 1080p Projector is awesome. The colors look amazing. The brightness of image is so good, that I set it to eco mode to double life of bulb to 10,000 hrs. The sharpness of image is great too. I have a 4k tv and 4k content on this projector looks very good as well. Highly recommended and great value.
Great picture, OK sound out
from California Sierra
My first projector. I love the nighttime picture on my 100 inch screen. Wish I could connect to my mini bluetooth speaker.

It made for a great outdoor movie family night. great picture quality with almost no digitization of the picture. close up video of water or smoke shows some digitization of picture but very, very little.
Simple setup and very good quality picture
from Greenville, SC, USA
Before I bought this product I was skeptical how the picture quality will be. But the brightness and sharpness of the picture is very impressive, I generally use only ECO mode which is bright enough to watch videos even with moderate room light. I am very proud to have it because 2 of my friends bought the same model with in a month. Only downside of it is, there is no audio out on the projector, so you may need an AV receiver like mine or HDMI to HDMI audio extractor for good audio speakers.
The Powerful PowerLite Product
from Dearborn, MI
To start with the 1040 replaced an Epson PowerLite 705HD, which served me flawlessly for nearly five years. Though the 1040 is used in a very light controlled environment, it projects against an acoustically transparent screen. Even though, it renders very bright, lifelike images. In addition to the improved resolution, the dynamic range of the contrast ratio definitely contributes to the excellent image quality. The black level does not appear to be a great improvement but the auto iris does make a difference. Though the auto iris operation is noticeable the sound level is lower than the 705HD. The built-in speaker could be better but it makes no difference to me since I use a separate audio system. I've only been using the 1040 for about week so I really have not had enough opportunity to get familiar with all the menu functions. However, what I've seen so far is very good!
i have always been ...
i have always been convinced that for a projection system DLP was the only way to go. I have owned 3 of them. I was very happy with them. However, since owning this unit I have changed my mind. Perhaps a 3 DLP might be as your units, but the cost is prohibitive. thanks
