Contrast is what makes OLED TVs excel on HDR, even though they can't match the brightness of top of the line LED tvs.
The same is the case for the new JVC-DLA line up of projectors when compared to the Sony 285ES or the Optoma new DLP4k, UHD65. The JVC beats them due to its excellent black levels and high contrast.
The Epson 5040 blows away its little sister the 4000 mainly due to the much improved black level and contrast.
The $500 price difference is worth it.
I know, I own an Epson 5040.
At current market price of $2,500 to $2,700 the Epson 5040 is a steal.
The 4000 at $2,000 to $2,200 has to compete against the Optoma UHD60 and its a loosing proposition.

Based on your knowledge of this projector and the Sony VPL HW30ES, would you say this is an upgrade in anyway or would the 5040ub be a better replacement ? Thanks.

Every HDR disc I've seen so far- Yes On HDR TV (A Sony flagship from a couple of years), have looked too exaggerated too fake and too unrealistic. Face it, HDR is not reality. If you look out your window, then look at the TV with HDR, you'll know exactly what I mean.
