Summary: Personal Experience Switched from a standard to my first HD projector. Everything about this projector great. Large zoom lens allows you to use it in small as well as large rooms. The horizontal/vertical lens shift allow you to place it in less than optomal places. Pleanty of keystone ability. Colors and clarity are excellent. It is pretty easy to use.
Summary: The picture quality and performance is superior. My only concern was after only 66 hours the lamp blew out. I contacted the company and they immediately replaced the lamp and no charge. I will just have to see how long this one lasts in hopes the first one was just a defective one from the start. Over all again the quality and performance is superior.
Summary: This HD projector is my first purchase of this type of equipment. I researched extensively and wanted a large screen HD experience for my home as the basement construction was just being completed. In my installation I paired this Epson 8100 projector with an Elite Screens cinewhite 100inch 16:9 widescreen in an area of my basement meaning not much light from windows is ever present. The displayed picture is absolutely incredible with detail beyond my expectations.
Summary: I give excellent rating for this product because it amazed me by it's qualities - stunning bright picture, low noise, high definition movies look just amazing! It gives 1080p resolution picture with 1800 lumen light intensity. Contrast ratio is also high. Pros: Bright and detailed picture Low fan noise Perfect value for money (through Ebay i purchased it 400usd below recommended retail price) so this ratio for me is even higher Cons: -Lens of projector projects too...

Summary: I was interested in the Epson 8100 projector for my customer recommendations and, possibly, for myself. I'm an ISF ([...]) certified calibrator and I decided to do some research on the product. Reading through the reviews on other sites and on Amazon, this projector was one of the best of it's class but... I was taken aback on the small but vociferous number of customers unhappy about the 4,000 hour rated lamp failing in as few as 400 hours.
Summary: UPDATE: Great customer service from Epson! After about 10 months or so, my lamp died. A bit early imo. I ordered a new lamp, put it in and...nothing. Now thinking there's an issue with the projector itself. Contact Epson and they ask me to send them back the lamp. Within days, I have a brand new one at no cost. No hassle, no arguements, just service! Thanks Epson!!
Summary: If you have a lot of room in your home and you are looking for a video system, you must not doubt in buy this video bean. I bought it and I was surprised by quality in image, it was clear and sharpy with excellent color balance. This device is friendly. I take it to my house and my family and I are very happy. The only caveat is the lamp price, so you must be very careful with its handle.
