Getting pretty excited. Reading though that for 4K, longer HDMI cables may pose issues. I have my Epson 5025UB presently connected via a 35 ft. cable. So, was considering the 5040UBe. But, if 35 ft. is still okay, I'd rather get 5040UB or the Pro Cinema 4040.

Edit: Looks like this HDMI cable may do the trick.

Hopefully, we'll see reviews of 5040 vs. 4040 soon.

Update: Looks like not much CR difference between 6040 vs 4040. From AVSForum, based on Cine4Home's review (via Google Translate):
Quote:only a maximum 20% improvement in CR for the 6040 over the 4040 due to the lens iris, so not a big difference really

Base on all the DLP Projector that was announce at CEDIA 2016, i think our only option for Faux K (4K) projector is the Epson 4K E-Shift projectors.The price of the TI DLP 4K projector are $15000 and up and most of them will be released in end of Q1.

Unfortunately, it looks like we're at least 2 years (or more) out before getting affordable true 4K PJ options.

I'll likely get an eShift PJ (JVC RS400 or Epson 5040UB), but waiting a little. No rush due to amount, variety of 4K content, especially as I'd hate to go back to discs.

I decided to wait on the Epson 5040 because of HDR being too dim and other issues reported by users @ AVSForum. You're right Acer is too pricey. Maybe by CEDIA 2017 in the Fall, we'll have a couple of decent, affordable 4K PJ options?

Optoma announces new true 4K PJ... affordable at $2,800 retail, but, sadly no 3D. Manufacturers are really killing off 3D now Sad...
