Reviews and Problems with Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 1080
Showing 1-10 of 28
Very Reliable, Great Picture, Quiet, Affordable, and a Beautiful Design
3 August 2012
Summary: This is a reliable and affordable (purchased used) home theatre projector. It has great picture quality, runs quietly and is very versatile. The keystone controls are great and allow for placements other than directly in front of your screen. I have owned this projector for almost 2 years and never had a problem. We replaced the first lamp at 2200hrs but that bulb still had life. Replacement bulb was found on eBay for just over $100.
Summary: An awesome projector for any price,but you can pick one of these up for a reasonable price. Its bright with vivid color and great contrast.There are newer and supposedly better projectors out there but why spend the extra just to have the latest model.All that really matters is the picture ! As soon as my son saw the picture he said that looks just like the tv, good enough for me.
Summary: This replaced an older Dell DLP 1024x768 unit. In addition to upgrading to 1080p, we no longer have to deal with the rainbow effect or loosing the detail of darker scenes. It is also quieter than the older unit, which was fairly quiet to begin with. The unit is a bit bigger than I had expected, but its white like the ceiling, so it stands out no more than the older gray unit.
Summary: Personal Experience Absolutely Stunning Blu-ray quality.... I have the front lens of the projector 16' ft from the 106" diagonal screen which I believe has a 1.3 gain. The projector is mounted at the same height as the top of the screen therefore obviously projecting downward and the lens perfectly compensates for the downward angle. One of the main reasons for selecting the projector was its variable throw distance of 10ft to 22ft in order to project 106" image.
Summary: I would like to recomand this projector to people who really care about brightness, sharpness and black level. I had Benq lower class projector before this one. There's huge difference! Epson Powerlite Home Cinema 1080UB is worth the money! You can get it little cheaper right now cuz they're going to release new projector soon. However this projector will the best projector in class even after they release new one.
Summary: Personal Experience Just hooked this up last night--first projector for me, but I have been researching this for a couple of years now. Our rear projection Mitsubishi HDTV just went out, so now my wife approved the purchase! Anyway, in one word--WOW! Love the image this puts up on an Elite 120" fixed frame screen!
Summary: I started watching projection TV with rear-view projectors and enjoyed the big picture experience they offered. A few years ago I purchaced my first front projector from Dell that offered standard and DVD quality resolution. I was sold on the front projectors after that. Last year I heard the price of HD projectors was dropping and made affordable for the Home Theatre user. After reading many reviews the Epson PowerLite was rated the best value buy.
