I love this projector, nice, bright and clear

Summary: I have been using this projector for about a year, I have it blown up to a good 12 feet picture spreed across my wall. I absolutely love the clarity, and range. the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I had to replace my first bulb after only 4 months of use, and that ran around $400.
Summary: I have owned this projector for approximately 1.5 years now. The image the projector puts out is great, but there are some obvious design flaws with the lamp cooling system. While the company has replaced numerous components at no cost to me as I am still inside the 2 year warranty period (2 lamps,...
Summary: After round one of tweaks the 1080p picture is top notch! Im still quite shocked how far projector technology has come. The picture is so compelling you'll think you're watching an hdtv. That is until you realize you're screen is 8ft across or more!
Summary: To begin, I'm very pleased with the performance of this project, however, after owning it for 9 months, my bulb blew with less than 800 hrs. Fortunately, Epson has great customer service and has sent a replacement bulb. I want to make clear that this appears to be a pretty common occurrence.
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.
Summary: We love this projector, but don't love the life of the lamps. We have owned it for almost 3 years now, and it has a beautiful picture. Even my 15 year old techie son loves it, which is saying something! BUT, we just purchased our 4th lamp today, whereas they are supposed to last 4000 hours.
Awesome picture, but more trouble than I bargained for.

Summary: After reading every review I could find and visiting the big box retailers to see their overpriced projectors I finally settled on the Epson Powerlite Home Cinema 8100. On January 7, 2010, I purchased from the Projector Superstore online for $1,599.00 The promise on the lamp life was 4000 hours, so...
Summary: I just love this projector. It's kind of big (actually really big), but it's very quite when it's running. Only time I can hear it operating is when I switch between picture settings (dynamic, normal, theater, etc.) The picture quality is OUTSTANDING and looks far superior than my 42" LG LCD TV.
Buyer Beware - 2 Bulbs both lasted about 500 hours, not 4000 hours as advertised!

Summary: 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.
Picture quality good, but repairs make this a $2,400 projector

Summary: @HomeTekkie's review is the same as mine: In different words, I second everything @HomeTekkie found at fault w/ his/her Epson 8100, my experience was nearly identical. We purchased our projector in mid 2010 for about $1,400, and this was based on the many glowing reviews, and especially the "best in...
