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.
Summary: The screen image of this projector is gorgeous. The contrast is good, the brightness is fine, lots of ways to adjust the screen, etc. THe price seemed very attractive. All of it, I would agree with all over again, except... Epson had a HORRIBLE bulb manufacturing deal with a plant in China.
Picture quality good, but repairs make this a $2,400 projector

Summary: Vibrant picture and great movie theater experience, nice interface with other devices via HDMI for media streaming i.e. Netflix, VUDU, etc. I bought this projector in July 2010 and used it in conjunction with an LG blu Ray player and a 120" screen.
Summary: I wish I had seen the "costly mistake" review before I bought my 8100 in Feb. I, too saw the concern about "beta" units, and discounted them. Well, I was initially a VERY satisfied buyer. This is the second projector I've owned, the first was a Panasonic 720P PT AX200U.
