That the Epson Home Cinema 5050UB and Pro Cinema 6050UB beat out this $4,999 true 4K Sony for Best Performance Award in the $2000 – $5000 Class is saying something. Not that it’s saying anything against the VPL-VW295ES – which is a fine projector, indeed – but that Epson made significant improvements over the older models, the 5040UB and 6040UB.
The VPL-VW295ES is, itself, an upgrade from its predecessor, the VPL-VW285ES, which won the award for Best Performance Home Theater Runner-Up in the 2018 Best Home Theater Projectors Report. The VW295ES instead takes home a new award: the Best Media Room Projector in the $2000 – $5000 Class.
