Excerpt: For the money this projector is hard to beat. Great placement flexibility, no rainbow effect, adequate lumens. If you are sensitive to RBE and want a projector for under $, this is the one to get.
Summary: The 8345 has been installed for about a week. I must be lucky in that I haven't seen $5-$10K projectors to compare it to, so I'm very pleased with the picture. I did tweak a few settings after reading a pro reviewer's comments. Its a great deal!
Excerpt: Our use is for TV, especially sports programs. We'll also watch a movie using the projector with a DVD connection. We have nothing but praise for this projector except for it's size and weight. That is not a problem now as we have it permanently mounted on the ceiling but it was was a struggle getting it there. It does not have any audio speakers.
Summary: I have the projector mounted on the ceiling, mount location was pre-determined. Really glad I went with this as the range of zoom and shift adjustments are great, did not realize that until I dug into the detailed specs of a number of projectors. Glad I did not go with DLP type competitive products that have much more limited shift and zoom capabilities, that would not have worked with my setup.
Summary: I use this for movies, netflix, apple TV, video games...pretty much everything. Excellent picture quality at a very reasonable price. Placement options are also very flexible due to the high magnification rate and lens shift. Basically you can put it anywhere and adjust it so that it fits the screen. Projectors at twice the price can't do this.
