comparing this 740 to epson models 730hd and 1040hd
I’m gong to agree with M. Gondek’s review of this item, (except I can’t find a button on my remote that allows me to change from rear to front projection and upside down mounting modes).
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.
I thought I was never going to find the right projector. I was so worried especially since I originally bought the “Optoma HD27 1080p 3D DLP Home Theater Projector” for $600 and was profoundly disappointed. The picture was great but the sound was awful – it literally hurt my ears at any volume. It got super hot within a few minutes of turning it on too which I thought was weird. I figured if I spent $600 on a projector and the sound was that bad, I might as well buy the cheapest projector I could, then buy external speakers separately. This Epson projector was the cheapest projector I could find with excellent reviews and bright enough Lumen count. I wasn’t sure what to expect but this has completely blown me away. The picture is bright and crisp, even in a room with afternoon light AND the audio is so clear that I don’t need the external speakers like I thought I would. I watched four episodes of “In Treatment” (about two hours of viewing time) projected onto my wall from my computer and the projector was barely lukewarm! The setup up was super easy too – it came with a very straightforward manual that had everything I needed to get started…which reminds me, the Optoma projector came with a CD and no paper manual. I have an external DVD drive for my Macbook Air but the CD wouldn’t play, so yeah – that was the other annoying thing about the Optoma that Epson was smart enough to avoid. Also, adjusting the screen is super easy (the Optoma made you pick a projector orientation that COULDN’T BE CHANGED LATER! It was crazy!) and all the settings can be customized with the remote control provided and top buttons on the projector itself…I can’t think of anything else to mention. I’m just in love with this thing, so much better than a tv and SO AFFORDABLE. This is a perfect example of how just became something is less expensive doesn’t mean it’s lower in quality. This projector is half the price of the other one I tried and 1000 times better in every way. I’m going to look into other Epson products actually, they’ve impressed me so much and the fact they make something so high quality at this price point is an indication to me that this company has integrity. Thank you Epson!!
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.
This is for sure a 5 star projector! Perfect for outdoor theater!
Absolutely love this projector for the money! Don’t listen to the reviews less then 3 stars. What you have to remember is this is a $300 projector, not a $1500 projector. You get what you pay for, and in this case it is outstanding! Picture quality is beautiful, razor sharp, keystone adjustment was great. Since I install home theaters for a living, I knew I could trust the Epson name and they came through in spades! We use it for our outdoor projection screen and all the kids and grandkids love it! Don’t let the small $$$ amount scare you away from this quality projector!
for best results you still need a dark room
Very bright (in combination with the 1:3 gain 4:3 aspect ratio 100 inch screen), you can use this in the middle of the day. Of course, for best results you still need a dark room, but it is watchable. This is not an HD projector, and its native resolution is for 4:3 screens, so I would strongly recommend to use it with 4:3 screen. I watch it from the distance of some 7 meters, so I am not really bothered too much with the lack of detail. Of course that I can see the “squares” if I look for them intently, but I like to enjoy in my movies, not to look for the imperfections of my equipment. If you are on the budget and have no intention to spend thousands on your home theatre, I highly recommend this projector.
Good, but left me wanting more
This was the second projector I tried out before settling for the one I have now. It was a huge step up from my first. A solid unit that delivers a really vibrant image. There was so much I liked, but I found myself ultimately wanting more after about a week of use. I thought I would be ok with 720p, but I have to say, the lack of full 1080HD is really noticeable when you’re watching an 84″ screen. The picture was just not as a sharp as I wanted it to be. If you’re on the fence about whether or not you need a full 1080 projector, I would advise against this one. There are options for only a little more money that will get you a much sharper image. If, however, ok is good enough for your needs. This is a really solid option at a great price point.
