Summary: If you are not into aesthetics, but into functionality and into looking for good bang for your buck...This Is It....Look no further...the only thing is the manual adjustemt for the lens. Other than that, PERFECT for our needs! I have had it for almost two years, and I utilize it almost daily, and more often than my 52" LCD display....The last NBA game we watched with the house full, projected against the wall at 10' high...HD without a hitch!!!!
Summary: I recently bought the Epson 6100 as a Manufacturers Refurbished product. While it was purchased through Visual Apex, an Amazon storefront, the projector was shipped direct from the Epson factory. The projector arrived in mint condition and the lamp was brand new ( verified with Epson). Setting up was a breeze. I am using a throw distance of 13 1/2' with a 100" diagonal 16:9 ratio screen.
Summary: This box rocks. Having a great time watching movies on the big screen at home. No need to talk in inches anymore, talk in feet now. I don't have anything to play 1080p yet but even 720p is simply awesome. The adjustable lens assembly is another great feature to be able to keep it in a corner of the room. Its a bit bulky though.
Summary: Well, I upgraded from a Panasonix AX200U, a 720p projector. The setup was no problem, even though the wheels to shift the picture can not be easily adjusted - the vertical one needed to be set just a little bit to the right in my set up and automatically jumped back to the middle position. Pretty poor design, but I finally got it as needed. The picture is great, but I honestly can not see a huge difference to the 720p Panasonix projector.
Summary: With no adjustments, this projector throws beautiful 8' wide images onto my blank white wall. I set it up on an elevated shelf and have had no problems with it. Adjusting image size, position, and focus were easy and I haven't touched it since. Colors are vivid and sharp, especially with Blu-ray disks. Other than a little more contrast and some loss of tonal subtlety, it's like being in a movie theater.
Summary: Personal Experience A solid performer. If your strategy is to maximize your performance for price then I would highly recommend this projector. It's easily bright enough for a light controlled room in Theatre Black 1 mode, and works very well for daylight viewing in Living room mode, so this project is quite flexible. It's not highly portable, but still quite light for a full size projector at roughly 16 lbs.
Summary: I have about a month of experience with the Epson 6100, and I'm thrilled. It replaces an Infocus 4805 that is about five years old. The 4805 has 2800 hours on the lamp, and the light tunnel is faulty causing a yellow smear down the left side of the screen. I had a few bucks set aside for a new projector, and between the great reviews I read, the long lamp life, and the $100 and spare lamp rebate, I pulled the trigger.
Summary: I bought this projector to replace a Sharp LCD with standard resolution. This projector is smaller and much quieter. It has an interesting set of adjustment wheels that allow you to adjust the image to the screen with ease. There is no need for a keystone adjustment as this projector corrects for it automatically. It gives you a variety of choices for video connections, but it performs extremely well using the HDMI connection.
