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

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: 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.
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.
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!
