Summary: This was a great purchase. I jumped on this when it was on a deep discount, and do.not.regret. It is incredibly quiet (are you sure it's off?), the sound from the speakers is good, and it has several ways to accept input.
Projector is currently at 120 inchs in a shot gun style living room with pretty good at blocking light out

Summary: After 4 years she is still alive and ticking, replaced one lamp for $100 by reusing my original lamp base, at the time the manufacture couldn't even supply the bulb. Has a few small issues ie: sound pops when turning on the first 40 seconds is all maybe 5 pops in audio (if passing audio thru it to...
Summary: fills a 120" screen quite well in a medium lit room. very happy with it after at least 1000 hours of use. this is an older model now, but DVDs (component) look fantastic on it, 1080P TV is even better.
Summary: Won't be upgrading my PRO8200 until I go to 4k. So yea, I love this projector. I suggest buying this projector and a "DarbeeVision DVP-5000" (if you can wing it financially $199.00) and you'll be set when it comes to sheer image size and visual clarity for years to come.
Summary: I did a bit of searching to find an HD projector with built in speaker and this one came up as the most recommended. It fits the bill perfectly. Decent lumens for the price and plenty of connections for all potential users. Colors are good throughout the spectrum, blacks okay.
Summary: I don't understand why everyone doesn't have a projector. It is bad@ss.
Pros: I reviewed this projector in 2012, when it had about 2000 hours on it (traditional projector bulb life) and it was going strong. Well, it's still going strong at 5,000 hours on the original bulb. It still looks great. I've built a wall to expand the image to it's maximum 12" wide projection size....
Cons: It's hard to keep my roommates from burning up all my bulb hours
Summary: I have only had the PRO8200 for about three weeks so far and I think it's great! I have a dedicated theater room so I can control the lighting. I am using DirecTV with the HD box and I have my Blu-Ray connected. The picture quality whether watching DirecTV or Blu-Ray movies is absolutely fabulous.
Summary: My office's last round of purchases involved Epson projectors, and although Epson typically make good products, these were fairly terrible--blurry, low-res, and often plaguing our meetings with cries of, "Why isn't it connecting?" So I got asked to do the legwork.
