Summary: The many other reviews here that praise the quality of this projector are right, so long as the bulb in the projector is relatively fresh. Now, after several replacements, I can say that it becomes unacceptably dim in about 1000 hours, nowhere near the 3000-4000 claimed.
Summary: I have owned several projectors including the newer Epson 8100. This PJ blows everything I've seen out of the water. In the same league as much more expensive JVC RS2. Very good 3D like image and black levels like you have never seen. PJ may look even better then you local movie theater.
Summary: I have had this projector for about 18 months. It is set up in a room with no ambient light so the brightness is more than adequate, but perceived picture quality is much better with the lights off or very dim.
Summary: Personal Experience I've had my epson for over a year now. Although the image quality is EXCELLENT, and the color depth is still quite impressive compared to other projectors, it routinley fails to deliver with regards to the bulb life.
Summary: After many years of wishing and slowly peicing togther the parts for a home theater I have finally achieved this lofty goal. This is my first projector so bare in mind my relative experience. A few things to note.
Summary: Personal Experience Outstanding picture. Amazing blacks, fantastic details and sharpness, great colours. Problem with focus however, frame interpolation adds some artifacts. That being said, watching avatar with 1080p and frame interpolation turned on is - for a cineast - almost a religious...
Summary: THIS PROJECTORS IMAGE COULD NOT BE GREATER!!!!!! I WAS SHOCKED AT THE DEPTH AND THE REALISUM OF THE PICTURE, I FEEL LIKE IM ON THE SHOOT BEHIND THE PRODUCERS CAMERA.......... SHOCKINGLY REAL! TRUE TO LIFE ON A 135" SCREEN, WOW!
Summary: Amazing video quality, I've got it at 150" diagonally on my wall with no projector screen and it still looks perfect. Watching movies and playing games from my ps3 and computer is just exilerating on this beautiful projection.
Summary: Personal Experience I've been using the projector for about 6 months and have no complaints. The picture is beyond belief!!! You feel like you are the director of the movie, the movie camera is behind you, and you are standing in the same area as the actors. It almost has a 3D feeling at times.
