Summary: The Epson 8100 was my first foray into projectors, and I picked it up for a steal... a very good HD projector at an even thousand dollars (plus tax). When I first got it, I couldn't wait to check it out. So I took it out of the box, set it on a chair, and hooked it up to my friend's blu-ray player.
Summary: I have had this in my dedicated home theater room for 2 years. The lamp probably did go out in well under 4000 hours, perhaps 1,000-1500. But, frankly if you shop around a replacement is about $150 or less now. Use only OEM replacement bulbs.
Summary: My previous projector was a SP4805 I had for many years. I decided to upgrade to the 8100. I have had my unit for year and a half now. The projector itself is awesome. Not a single problemwith the unit itself. Amazing picture with good brightness and lots of bells & whistles.
Summary: Great Projector, I use it all the time, first bulb lasted ~200 hours, and Epson Overnighted a replacement, no questions asked. Second bulb lasted 1300 hours, Epson replaced overnight, no questions asked, Third lasted 15 hours, Epson is sending a new projector, overnight, no questions asked.
Summary: I bought my Epson 8100 projector right before Christmas 2009. It was incredible! In July 2010 (abouot 8 months after I got it), the bulb went out. Since we do not have a TV hooked up to it and all we do is watch movies and play video games from time to time, I figured I got less than 700 hours out...
Summary: Very quiet, especially if in cinema color mode(living room is a little noisier). Good picture quality, the fios installer, who sees quite a few tv's was very impressed. The ability to mechanically adjust the lens in four directions allows for many more installation positions, which is a huge...
Summary: Excellent Home Theatre system, Friends and Family have been impressed with picture quality. I have a room light in the path of the projection and it takes very little away from the quality of picture. Truly impressive system for the price.
Summary: This is my first projector. The picture from blue ray is amazing. The only problem for me is the noise from PJ is a little louder beyond my expectation. It is definitely over 22dB and audible beside my couch when no voice is on the movie.
Summary: Pretty good projector in general. It servers as our 1 and only tv. We use it for the Wii, DVD and Cable and it is usually pretty good. It is not too loud but you can hear it hum a bit. I have turned off the auto iris and I usually run it in eco mode to save the bulb. However, I am on my 3rd bulb.
