Recently I had the opportunity to select the Epson Home Cinema 4000 4ke Video Projector from Amazon Vine Voices. Seeing that as part of our homeschool coop the kids do presentations sometimes I thought it would be great to have in order to project their presentation on the wall… that was before we realized the size of this particular projector. After selecting the product to review, my husband and I discovered the size it would be…. and he was laughing while saying “There is no way you will be carrying this around!” You see this particular projector is big and weight over 11 kg. So yes it was indeed out of question for carrying to coop.
So we were debating what to do…. maybe I should just forget about it. But hubby decided to go check in the basement with one of our boys to determine if it was feasible to remove the television and install this “beast” on the ceiling. They came back upstairs with a decision – we will install it at the ceiling.
So when I got the Epson Home Cinema 4000 4ke we waited about a week before testing it. Not at the ceiling mind you – that will be done sometimes hopefully in December. But we have a foldup table and installed it on the back of our sofa.
WOW! The colors are absolutely stunning. the resolution on this projector is absolutely amazing.
In our living we currently have a 60” television on the wall. We were able to bring the size to 120” on the perpendicular wall. If we would bring the projector closer to the back wall of the room, we would be able to have a bigger area covered on the wall. Nevertheless, looking at a movie on a size of 120” is fabulous. Note that our walls have a light yellow color so it isn’t necessary to have a white wall in order to see the colors properly. I mean Lighting McQueen was at his best on the wall of our living room! And our living room is fairly small but the capacity of coverage from the projector made it feel like a small private theater.
This particular project also comes with a smart motorized lens which allows you to adjust the lense in order to have the biggest, straightest and most amazing view for your movie.
Needless to say that we are very impressed with the projector. However, I need to highlight a few things about it if you will consider to get one.
1) It does not come with speakers so you will need a different system to handle your sound.
2) If you desire to install it at the ceiling, you will have to purchase a ceiling bracket.
3) Keep in mind that you may have to spend some money to hire an electrician to set up an electrical outlet for the device at the ceiling. Never do this kind of job yourself…
Note that the projector comes with a remote control but you can also use the buttons found on the device as well.
So we are very pleased with the quality of this Epson Home Cinema 4000 projector. Now we only have to find the time to install it at the ceiling after we have purchase a ceiling bracket and got an electrical outlet installed. We have a few expenses to do for installing it but when it will be done I think it will be amazing in our basement area.
