Great projector for high ambient light use, Sports, Presentations & Videos. *Wow*
I agonized over getting this, vs. a more expensive / higher lumen projector (e.g., the 4500-lumen BenQ for MH750 for $1,000). As quick context, my viewing room is pretty much a wall of windows out onto a clear blue sunny California sky. Below is a picture of my room without *any* lights turned on, to get a sense. I registered 2000 Lux (about 200 foot-candles) coming in through the windows at 11 am, and about 600 Lux hitting the screen directly (it is at a 90-degree angle to the windows). At around 60 foot-candles, this is about 6 times brighter than a typical living room in the evening with all the lights turned on, and about 25% brighter than the standard office with all the lights on.
Epson Home Cinema 1040 vs. BenQ W1070
I have owned three projectors before this one and installed and managed several others at work. My favorite so far is the BenQ W1070. Here’s how this Epson Home Cinema 1040 measures up with it.
Use an HDMI audio extractor for an external speaker.
Very crisp picture and bright can be used for business presentations, however no sound output jack (3.5 or Optical) other than your HDMI. You can use an HDMI audio extractor. Great projector made by Epson but I noticed the same problem as far using an external speaker that has a 3.5 mm input or an optical cable input. Well I found the solution I used an HDMI audio extractor and it works. I was able to use a 3.5mm audio cable into a powered speaker and it sounds great on the projector. The HDMI audio extractor splits the audio channel and you can even use a fiber optic cable into a compatible device.
good for movies and gaming
I’ve got curtains that let light in so it’s not really bright enough during the day. At night this thing is a beast. My last projector had rainbows so I didn’t want that. I’ve heard that DLP supposed to be a little bit sharper but the picture on this is blowing me away. hard to imagine that it can get even better.
Picture looked great but my textured wall was holding it back
Finished my basement which included a theatre room. It was my first gonat this so I had no idea what to buy. Look at reviews on an endless number of units and still was indecided. In the end I decided to go with this one.
Brilliant display even in a brightly lit room
We have had a 92″ fixed screen in our living room since 2004 and I have always been a fan of DLP projectors. Our 9 year old BenQ died so the hunt was on to replace. After agonizing over reviews for 2 months and narrowing a selection down I finally chose the HC1060. I still was hesitant that an LCD system was not going to outperform what I had been used to. Boy was I wrong. This projector delivers and makes a very vivid display that has impressed me entirely. The screen we have is a 1.2 gain formula that assists mostly in producing blacks during dark scenes but also helps increase light output as we have a lot of ambient outdoor light that comes through a nearby triple slider patio door. Even in the brightest part of the day the picture is displayed like a mural on the wall. This is on the ECO setting with a brightness level of 40. I am totally happy with the HC1060 with one small exception. There is some white light bleed-over around the perimeter of the picture that needs mitigated, which I am still working on. But with the magnificent picture clarity and color, I will gladly figure out the bleed-over and never question the decision to go with the HC1060.
it’s so good. this is a theater projector
The brightness, the clarity, it’s so good. this is a theater projector, it does NOT have an audio out, nor should it, you shouldn’t trust you projector with your audio… why, you ask? because it’s a VIDEO projector, not an AUDIO projector, we call them guys stereo systems! 🙂
There are a lot of great things going for this unit
There are a lot of great things going for this unit, and only one negative, but it’s a big one. Picture quality is great, easy to set up, and decently bright in the right circumstances. *However*, this unit has a “regular power” mode, and an “ECO power-saving” mode. Regular power runs the bulb at the expected, full-power brightness, and it is a great picture! BUT, the cooling fan kicks up to the speed and noise level of a VACUUM cleaner!! If you want reasonable quiet in the room, you will be FORCED to run the unit in ECO mode, and consequently run with the dimmer light output. It is really too bad, and worth taking two stars off of an otherwise 5-star unit.
An excellent value!
The Epson Home Cinema 1040 is an excellent device if you’re looking for a projector that can do well in a variety of light conditions, has beautiful bright colors, and is excellent for gaming. The projector is easy to set-up directly out of the box. After plugging it in and pointing it at the wall I popped in Ron Fricke’s Samsara into my PS4 and was greeted with beautiful, eye popping color. Noise wise, I only really notice the auto iris while browsing Hulu and Netflix’s menus, but it’s a feature that can be turned off if it’s irritating. The fan is no louder than my PS4/Computer and really isn’t noticeable. My one complaint is that it turns off immediately after powering down and there’s no cool down protocol. The picture is clear and crisp and movies such as Into The Void, Interstellar, and Samsara all look excellent.
