HOME CINEMA 2040 AND 2045 PROJECTORS - SUMMARY:
Summary - Picture Quality - Brightness - Features, Pros and Cons
Epson's HC2040 and HC2045 share a Hot Product Award
The short version is this: These are two excellent, and very affordable projectors. They are particularly good at keeping life simple - great color right out of the box, great warranty, very "plug and play."
They also have long life, and low cost replacement lamps, a built in speaker and great warranty.
And they have MHL so you can plug in a streaming stick or interface directly with many phones and tablets.
