First off, let it be known that the Epson Home Cinema 5050UB is a premium device, and it looks the part – it’s a lot bigger than you might expect based on online images, and bigger than your average consumer projector.
To that end, the projector sits in at around 6.7 x 20.5 x 17.7 inches (HxWxD), so it’s safe to say that the projector was designed to be put somewhere and left there. Really, it’s probably best to mount this projector from the ceiling, though of course you could place it on a desk or table too, which is what we did during our testing.
The device itself is white with gold accents, and it’s a pretty good look. Despite its mammoth size, we like the curved corners and fluid feel. Really, the projector looks like it would fit in an actual movie theatre – which, honestly, is a neat aesthetic.
In the middle of the front of the device, you’ll find the lens for the projector, with grills on either side of that lens for cooling. On the left of the projector, you’ll find a power button and source control, along with controls to control the software of the device, in case you happen to not have the remote.
On the back of the projector is where you’ll get your inputs and outputs, and there’s a solid selection of them. For starters, there are two HDMI 2.0 inputs, along with a USB-A port and an Ethernet port for a more stable internet connection. There’s also a VGA port for connecting a PC and an RS-232C port, which can be used to connect the projector to an existing home theater control system, like Control4.
