Summary: Going on 2 years. The bulb is a bit pricey, and we had to report to Epson how the replacement bulbs were not lasting. Finally, Epson sent us one directly. However, we have been enjoying a 92" television and movie viewing.

Summary: I have had my epson powerlite home cinema 710 for over a year now and we use it almost everyday for 2-4 hours a day and still on first bulb. Picture is great too. Only thing that I wish it had was an audio out to send the hdmi audio signal out to my speakers. You will need to run source hdmi through a receiver than to projector if you want to split up audio signal.
Summary: I had an epson powerlite 5s that was 7 years old and I can hardly tell a difference in picture quality and there isn't an audio output so I'm not able to tie into my out sound system. I called epson and they didn't have a solution for me.
Summary: Had it for a couple of months and the family loves it. We use it during the day with the windows open and, though it is not as bright as it is at night, it is still very watchable. We sold our 47" tv and this is all we use. I know some people will tear their hair out reading this next bit, but I would not be able to tell the difference if it was 1080p vs the 720p it is. The picture looks great. There are two settings for brightness.
Summary: I like the projection quality of this rig, but the fan noise is a little much. I run this projector on ECO mode and the fan noise is still too much for me. The auto iris also makes annoying noises, but I don't care for the picture quality in dark scenes with it disabled so I live with it. I probably would have ordered something else and spent a little more if I'd known how loud this projector would be.
