User Review

  • Summary: Personal Experience As far as picture quality and performance this projector was very good. My biggest gripe, and its a costly one, is that the bulb life on this machine last around 400-500 hours. The bulb was rated up to 4000 hours which i think its pure marketing baloney.

Decent Picture, but Annoying Noise and Difficult Adjustment

Mike Roberts, avsforum.com
11 May 2013
  • 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

Disappointed - red tint problem

Harry, Amazon
2 September 2010
  • Summary: I bought the item from Amazon. Hooked it up to my digital cable box and my PS3. At first glance the picture was awesome. Then I noticed a red tint in the bottom right quadrant of the image. This was present regardless of the video source. It was also there on the blue screen boot up.

Great projector with a serious flaw

  • Summary: I purchased this projector from Amazon about a month ago. First, I would like to echo what everyone else is saying about brightness, sharpness, quietness and ease of setup. The projector is fairly large, larger than I expected, but it is also fairly light.

It turned out to be a Big, Costly Mistake!

R Broyles "Norm Alman", Amazon

  • Summary: It turned out to be a Big, Costly Mistake! I failed to grasp that comments and reviews for Epson PowerLite® Home Cinema 8100 were for a newly released projector. No one had owned and operated the 8100 more than 90 days when I was reading the reviews in late November and early December 2009!
