PROS

  • The Epson 6040UB’s 4K Enhancement technology delivers crisp, Ultra HD-like pictures from both standard HD and 4K sources.
  • Improvements introduced by Epson in the 6040UB give it a notable edge in light output and contrast over its predecessor.
  • 3D movies display excellent depth on the 6040UB, and the projector’s impressive light output means that images look sufficiently bright in 3D mode.

CONS

  • While the 6040UB’s redesigned auto iris adds a kick to picture contrast, it also introduces a degree of motor noise.
  • Pushing the 6040UB’s lamp beyond the limits of Eco mode can result in audible fan noise.
  • The “4K-Enhanced images” projected by the 6040UB technically aren’t the same as real 4K delivered by more expensive projectors, though most people will be hard-pressed to tell the difference.
Epson’s 6040UB LCD projector delivers improved brightness and contrast over its predecessor for the same price. The 6040UB also introduces a new feature--4K Enhancement--that displays crisp Ultra HD-like pictures from both standard HD and 4K sources, and it’s compatible with high dynamic range content. Fans of 3D movies will appreciate the 6040UB’s excellent handling of that format. The only downside is relatively high fan noise in some picture modes, though that issue is easily solved by selecting the Eco lamp mode.

Yes, the 6040UB is doing 4K simulation. But we think most observers, seeing it side by side with a native 4K image, would agree that it is a remarkably precise simulation.
