So I've had my 8350 since Wen (purchased from Visual Apex,, their the best).
Upgraded from the 8100 that I only had for a week but I can say I think the 8350 is a clear upgrade from the 8100 (in spite of the limited time I spent with the 8100)
As far as brightness/lumens,,,going from memory, I think this PJ is just as bright as my much loved Panny AX200 (and that thing was a flame thrower).
So much has alrady been said here about the 8350 I dont really think I have anything new to offer so I just figured I would post some random pictures of my "almost" completed room and some screen shots from the 8350.
Settings, no tweeking yet, just out of the box, in Vivid mode, I like Vivid better than any of the other modes so far so Im sure I will leave it there.
106" electric screen that comes down in front of my Vizio 55" LED (love my Vizio LED, it has a killer picture).
Walls recently painted flat black (have not painted the ceiling yet or the baseboards).
I decided not to use my projector mount and instead built a ceiling box to place the 8350 inside, makes it easier to do maintance on the Epson and to hide cords/cables inside the box (Im in a rental so I can put cable's inside the walls).
Ok,, thats all I can think of for now,,, enjoy the pictures.
