The Epson Pro Cinema LS10000 is a breakthrough projector for Epson, on several levels: 4K processing, and viewing 4K content, dual laser light source, and quartz reflective panels. All great, but its the picture that truly impresses. The Pro Cinema LS10000 is a 1500 lumen projector that starts shipping in the second half of October 2014.
Update: We received a full production LS10000 for testing in December. After 6 weeks and over 100 additional hours of viewing, it turns out there were only minor differences. An additional LS10000 Review Update was created and published on Feb. 2nd 2015. Click here to read the update.
This projector review is based on extensive use with a pre-production engineering sample, which performed exceptionally well, considering it was one of a handful of early prototypes on a major new projector, not a new version of an existing projector. The LS10000 projector at the time of this writing, (pre-CEDIA) does not have an official price yet, although Epson assures it will be "under $8000." As a Pro Cinema series, it will not be available online, that it comes with some extras in the box, and a 3 year parts and labor warranty with 3 years of rapid replacement program, for what has to be the best warranty of any projector near its price.
