I am at a cross-roads....I currently have a 5040ub....looking at this forum it appears the 6050 is not a "native 4k"? I like the price point but should I pay the 4k for the 6050? or save a coupe of months more and buy a true JVC NX-5 "native 4k"??? Would love honest feedback?

Me too. A white projector would look really ugly in my theater.
Ya white definitely isn’t a option for me either.

They make vinyl skins for laptops, phones and such. They should make them for projectors.

I just don't get how Epson includes 4k and UHD in their product name or the whole 4k enhanced thing. Enhanced should be a better version of the term it's describing. So 4k enhanced should actually be better than 4k not worse. But I highly doubt a "1080 Enhanced" moniker would sell as well. They're just not honest at all outside of their little tiny footnote that says it doubles HD resolution.

And not that I wouldn't buy one if it fit my room. The lying aspect just really irks me. If you're not going to throw the right amoint of pixels, then call it what it is, a 2160p or 1080 Enhanced projector. The quality of the pic it throws is irrelevant.

Very good point. I’ve never thought of it that way. But you aren’t wrong.

Having seen the RS1000, it's hard to beat.

I would absolutely save the money and buy the JVC. You'll get much better contrast, sharpness, and lamp stability for starters.

Must admit I was a little disappointed to see what was new about this when the headline was "epson officially unveils pro cinema 6050ub pro uhd projector"

Was hoping for something more in the LS10X00 path with a long lasting laser source, full fade to black, reflecting LCD panels and maybe a native 4K etc.....

It is nice to see Epson delivers some upgrades and some evolution is happening for that LCD projector technology, with better HDR and in that price range etc...
But today when rather big flat screens is competing more and more with home cinema projectors, and Sony and JVC delivers very nice native 4K projector models, I think it is a little sad to see Epson's "pro cinema 6050ub pro uhd", if it stops there and there is no laser and 4K models to choose from....
