Epson 5030UB: Deeper blacks, bright whites and still a great value

 

Last year our favorite bang-for-the-buck projector was this Epson's predecessor. The new version is mostly the same, with one crucial improvement: an even better picture.

The ; projector can deliver great dark-room images yet has enough light output for moderately lit rooms; achieves darker blacks than last year's version; excellent color accuracy; ample shadow detail; plenty of features including motorized lens cover,...

Black levels not quite as deep as somewhat more expensive D-ILA competitors; auto iris required for peak performance.

The Epson 5030UB projector is better then ever, with excellent picture quality for the money and class-leading light output, making it shine in both dark and moderately lit rooms.

Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 5030UB review: Projector's pretty picture hits high and low notes

 

Among the handful of projectors we reviewed last year, Epson's 5020UB was our favorite, earning the Editors' Choice badge for its combination of picture quality and value. Yes, there are better projectors (for more money) and less expensive projectors...

Epson Home Cinema 5030UB

 

The Epson Home Cinema 5030 UB projector is the third generation of this UB (Ultra-Black) series.

Brightest 1080p, 3D capable projector we've seen ; Relatively clean 3D (limited crosstalk - depending on 3D glasses settings) ; Excellent black level performance (2D and 3D) ; 3D glasses are some of the lightest, and brightest, plus they are RF and...

A lack of motorized lens features, so no "Lens Memory" for working easily with 2.35:1 wide screens ; One of the noisier projectors at full power, but not particularly so, but enough to annoy the most "noise adverse" among us ; Some folks with dark...

What's not to like? The Home Cinema 5030 UB, and UBe version offer minor performance improvements over last year's Epson UB projectors. There is only one other projector in the $2000 to $3500 range that is refreshed for this year, and that's the almost...

"Best set of features for the price"

 

I've owned both this model and the previous model 8500UB. When they come out with a 4K in the series, I'll probably upgrade to that too!

Nice blacks, high res, good brightness for even moderately lit rooms

Proprietary glasses required for 3D (normal)
