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...

Lovely screen, completely unreliable product

  • 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.

  • 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: 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,...

Alas, another sucker believed the 4000 hours

  • 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.
