  • 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

great projector except for the early lamp blowout

  • 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.

Great projector while it worked

  • 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!

Low Lamp Life Confirmed - 504 Hours = Dead

Disappointed, Amazon
6 March 2011
  • Summary: The picture for the 8100 is truly unbelievable. It is great, however the 504 hr lamp life was ridiculous. After 90 days, good luck.

Lamp issues

Amazon Customer, Amazon
17 January 2011
  • 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...
