Good projector but reliability is not there

Paul, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this Pj in 2009 (full price). Excellent for movie viewing and sports event. However many people including me reported that a pink band showed up at the bottom of the screen after 3 yrs or less. You should know that there is a fix for it found on the AVS Forum.

Great... Until the Teal and Magenta Bands Appeared -- Epson Terrible Support -- A Shame They Asked for More Money to Fix

  • Summary: I bought this projector brand new and was ecstatic for about a year and a half. We have it set up to be used on a 120 inch screen in our theater room. Because its in a theater room, we are able to black out all light and the picture is FANTASTIC!

  • Summary: This is my third Epson and probably my last. I bought this projector brand new in April 2010 and it has been great for four years and now it is not repairable and has less than 2000 hours total. This has been the issue with every Epson I have owned.

Epson Post Pre-Mature Lamp Failure

Amazon Customer, Amazon
24 January 2014
  • Summary: I have found out the hard way Epson bulbs life are not as advertised. I have never got a bulb to last more than 1000 hrs. What Epson will do is string you along with a couple of new bulbs saying it was a bad batch until your warranty runs out then leave you high and dry.

Don't buy an Epson unless you also buy an extended warranty

  • 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.

after 3 years...it's a piece of junk

rich shuman, Amazon

  • Summary: We bought this unit 3 years ago on Amazon for $1,800. We have gone through bulbs very quickly...gotten free ones by calling Epson because the bulbs hardly had any hours on them compared to what they were supposed to have. Started having lines on the bottom of the screen..

Epson 8500UB lamp issue

NISHAR SAIFUDEEN, Amazon
5 December 2013
  • Summary: Bought 8500UB for 2000. Picture quality is good and many friends bought it but the lamp life is very bad. My first lamp died within 200 hours and Epson shipped next day and that lasted for 1100 hours. Now after 3 years I am out of warranty and lamp costs 300$.

This will certainly be my last Epson projector

  • Summary: I purchased the 8500 from a very well respected Audio/Video dealer near me and was told that, without a doubt, this was the very best projector on the market for less than $2,500.

Lamp lasted 25% of claimed duration

M. Taussig, Amazon
23 July 2013
  • Summary: Lamp lasted only 475 hours. Great picture while it lasted. I live in Argentina where everything is difficult to get/change/buy. It becomes a nightmare to have the projector or the lamp replaced even under warranty.
