Don't buy an Epson unless you also buy an extended warranty
10 January 2014
Summary: We owned the 8500ub for 3 years. Within 6 months we had a replacement under warranty. Now the optical engine has failed and we would have to pay $1,000 to have it repaired. We originally paid $2,000 for a unit that didn't even last 3 years...that's ridiculous. I have called Epson and have gotten no rebate offers/money back on our next purchase...so I am hesitating on buying another Epson. We went through lamps like crazy..
Summary: this projector is excellent in all espects i bought this projector 2 years ago and i still in love with it ,it gives excellent picture you feel like you are sitting in a theater, i used hdim out put for the best quality picture, if you planing buying a projector i woud recommend this to every one.this rojector is not in production anymore but you still can buy on ebay.
