comparing this 740 to epson models 730hd and 1040hd
By Prof. Crayzee
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).
But what I want to focus on here are the differences between the models, since that information is a bit hard to find.
When I search for this model, Amazon also suggests the following...So I'll save you some research.
Epson Home Cinema 730HD, HDMI, 3LCD, 3000 Lumens $399 (refurb)
Epson Home Cinema 730HD, HDMI, 3LCD, 3000 Lumens $499
Epson Home Cinema 740HD, HDMI, 3LCD, 3000 Lumens $599 <--THIS MODEL
Epson Home Cinema 1040, HDMI, 3LCD, 3000 Lumens $799
The 730HD is the earlier model of this projector. It has slightly higher! resolution (1280x800 instead of 1280x720). I figure they went to the 720 for the newer so the image could be 1:1 for a 720P image without any interpolation that could affect image quality. But I doubt the average person could see a difference. The other difference is that the 730 contrast ratio is 1:12,000 and the newer 740 is 1:15,000
Short story - for $200 LESS you could get a refurb 730 (or $100 less for new) and have virtually the same projector.
For $200 MORE you could have the 1080P version of this projector (1280x1200 interpolated to 1280x1080).
Is 1080P worth the extra money? Probably not. Unless you sit very close to your projection screen. Then you will notice a difference (the 1080p version also has a max image size of 300 inches vs 320 for the 720p versions if this matters to you)
Would I buy one of these epson projectors? YES! They are an amazing value for the price, well designed, clear menus, lots of options, and a nice picture. The question is which one fits your budget/needs the best. Hopefully this will be helpful as you choose.

A surprisingly beautiful picture and small footprint makes this a winner.
By Mark H âœ¨
[[VIDEOID:fd2cf6481e949e24ae3dbf85c46e1694]]I'm not a person of in-depth technical detail - like "how" stuff works but it can tell you that I was blown away by this little machine from the moment I plugged it in.
Set up was easy, plug the HDMI cable from your apple tv, roku, amazon fire and chromecast and put your sound source into your receiver (or not, it has pretty decent sound on its own) aim the picture, focus and sit back!
I had my Epson on the right side of the dresser and needed the picture to be on the opposite wall but on the left. Not sure it would work but thanks to this think called Vertical Keystone, the picture was placed perfectly on that wall -- it's baffling!
The picture OMG the picture. It was stunning. I had no idea how remarkable this technology had become. My wall is a darker cream color and the colors that came through were amazingly untouched. There are a few cool settings to help you make the picture clearer.
It does have a bit of fan noise but it's important because this guy gets hot!!

We couldn't be happier with the quality picture this product gives. Star Wars movie night in the back yard was a HIT! The HD quality was awesome on our 100-inch Elite Screen!
