Summary: Projector came with the house in a movie room and probably purchased some time after 2008. The previous owner already called Epson support in September 2010 "Projector wouldn't turn off - Lamp and Temp lights red and blinking".
Decent Picture, but Annoying Noise and Difficult Adjustment

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
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.
Summary: I'm facing a problem with my Epson PowerLite 8100 projector with just 200Hrs of lamp usage - the images displayed on the screen (Liberty GrandView projection screen) have a blur with a greenish tinge - unfortunately the warranty expired 6 months ago!
Summary: TL;DR Even though the projector died quite prematurely, I was so happy with the quality of the unit I decided to stay with Epson and purchased a PowerLite 8350. Purchased the PowerLite 8100 in May, 2010. Amazing quality, high brightness. Myself and anyone who comes over are WOWED by this thing.
Good picture but bulb last about 1/4 of their claim.

Summary: I did a lot of research and this was a reasonably priced 1080 projector. It would be my first home theater projector. I had an old business projector and this would be a definite upgrade. When we got it in the picture quality was amazing!
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: 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.
Summary: I purchased my projector in May of 2010. I had read posts stating that people had issues with their lamps expiring prematurly but I thought this was likely a limited problem as my last projector was an Epson and I had absolutely no problems with it and I know that Epson makes good products with a...
