Summary: The 1080 resolution is excellent, but the 50k: 1 contrast is what makes the image so beautiful (in a dark room.) Other projectors with this level of contrast cost double. The epson 5025 has even better contrast, but also costs double.
Summary: I thought this Epson 8350 Projector was excellent before; but I thought I would have a close friend who is a media professional calibrate it for optimum performance, WOWWWW!!! Unbelievable !!! It the most defined, realistic picture I've ever seen in a home theater/media setting !!! Superb !!
Summary: It worked well for first 500 hours and then that famous cinema filter error with a grinding sound and both warning lights (lamp and temperature) showed up and Epson gave a cold shoulder saying its out of warranty.
Summary: People are in awe when they see the screen size and quality of the picture. It gives you that true Home Theater feel. All for the price of a medium sized big screen TV. Bigger screen size than you could ever imagine.
The Epson 8350 Is Amost Identical to the More Expensive 8700UB

Summary: The Epson 8350 ($890) replaces my more expensive later generation 8700UB ($2200) that stopped working. Since the 8350 is $1300 less and a much older model, I must be missing some improvements that the 8700UB added, but for the life of me, I don’t know what they are.
Summary: We have the 8350 projector ceiling mounted in a theater room. Distance to 110 inch screen is about 9 feet. We have used the projector for a about a year and a half now. The image is bright, even with some window shades open. Remote is easy to use, and intuitive.
