Beware bulb life is 500 hours not 4000 hours

Fred P., Newegg
13 November 2013
  • Pros: Good picture as long as the lamp works.
  • Cons: I bought this projector based on the fact that the bulb was rated for 4000 hours. After only ~500 hours the bulb failed. I called Epson who assured me that the problem was fixed as they've switched manufacturers and they shipped me a replacement under warranty. After ~500 hours on the replacement...

Decent Picture, but Annoying Noise and Difficult Adjustment

Mike Roberts, avsforum.com
11 May 2013
  • Summary: I have the Epson 8100 in my basement, dedicated theatre. This is my first projector and I was looking for a good value LCD 1080p with a decent amount of lens shift and zoom to accommodate the placement needed in my room.
  • Pros: good zoom and lens shift range, sharp image
  • Cons: vertical lens shift drifts over time, fans makes annoying ticking, big and white

Excellent Projector, Especially for the Price

  • Summary: The Epson 8100 was my first foray into projectors, and I picked it up for a steal... a very good HD projector at an even thousand dollars (plus tax). When I first got it, I couldn't wait to check it out. So I took it out of the box, set it on a chair, and hooked it up to my friend's blu-ray player.
  • Pros: Great Picture, Quiet, Great Price
  • Cons: Bulb longevity

less than 1100 hours (3 Bulbs) and a Purple line

Gildo De Simone "Gil", Amazon
20 February 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this projector on Amazon 2 years and 8 months ago. The projector only has a 2 years warranty on it according to Epson. 6 months into ownership of this projector I had accrued ~500 hours when the bulb blew the first time.

Great product

K. DESAI, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this because it has 2 HDMI, extra bulb life. Installed it and projected on the light colored wall. So far every one is impressed - including some folks who had other older HD projectors. Picture just jumps out. If you do not use super bright mode then you barely her this so it is quiet.

Fantastic picture, extremely low bulb life

thin wallet, Amazon
17 January 2011
  • Summary: This is my first projector and I was wowed for a whole year by it. The bulb went dead after about 700 hours. Epson support was quick to reach and are sending a replacement bulb today, should be here within 48 hours.

Excellent Projector

magicron13, Amazon

  • Summary: The picture quality and performance is superior. My only concern was after only 66 hours the lamp blew out. I contacted the company and they immediately replaced the lamp and no charge. I will just have to see how long this one lasts in hopes the first one was just a defective one from the start.

Love it

Sam, Amazon
17 January 2011
  • Summary: We have had this projector for a month now and love it.... amazing quality for the price.. sure we would love the quality of a $5000 projector, but for the cost, at an entry level projector, it is fantastic. We could not be more happy.

good value

Edfish, Amazon
17 January 2011
  • Summary: Very quiet, especially if in cinema color mode(living room is a little noisier). Good picture quality, the fios installer, who sees quite a few tv's was very impressed. The ability to mechanically adjust the lens in four directions allows for many more installation positions, which is a huge...
