All I can say is wow. Do you have any pictures of your room eddie187 with the lights on. I am curious if your picture looks this good w/ white walls and white ceiling. Either way that's a pretty sweet looking picture for the price.

Cathedral ceiling with 2 SGDs and lots of large windows.
Walls are white. Room is very bright.
Obviously I can only use the projector at night.
Which is why I chose 8350. Need the lumens.
It's a good thing I don't have a dedicated theater.
I would never come out.

What is the audible noise like? I know it says 22-28dB in the manual, but can you hear it during quiet scenes? This projector seems great, but I hate noisy electronics

Can the iris be adjusted manually and set to a fixed (not moving) position?

Like the picture quality eddieb187! Nice

Will pull trigger on this projector soon - can't wait!

Suggestions on ceiling mount for the 8350? Similar to ones recommended for the 8100?

Also interested in decible volume

Thanks in advance

Holy Crap!!! I wouldn't trust my projector to sit on a shelf that is held up by screws!!!

Buy this! I own it and its as strong as a TV Wall Mount!

brodskive,
I sit right under and to the side of the projector.
I didn't notice any noise last night.
But I was pretty excited I just got it set up.
I will mute the sound tonight and see if I hear anything.

Sisyphus,
You turn the Iris off. Actually, it came from the factory with it off.
There are three settings in the on screen menu for the Iris.
Normal, High Speed, and Off.

ramosma,
I have mine on a shelf bolted to a large support beam.
Epson has a mount, but I'm sure there are after market ones just as good.
I hear Chief is pretty good.

What he has for a shelf is fine.

I have a similar shelf for my Klipsch Academy center channel, and it's a heavy beast. Has been on the shelf for over a year without problems. Not the most cosmetically pleasing, but with a huge ass speaker on it, you can barely see it.

Looking at the pictures it does look a little shaky.
Those shelf brackets are bolted with pretty long screws into the beam.
I have a modular home. That's a double wall beam.
One of the main support beams for the second floor.
It's all solid wood with sheetrock over it.
The projector only weighs 16 lbs. More than adequate.
This is the third projector I've had on those brackets and shelf.
Can't mount it in the front, not enough throw then.
Wouldn't fill my screen.
Besides, how do you think the shelf you linked to is mounted? With screws.

I am wondering if the new lens shift capability is going to allow me to point the image downward enough - with the projector sitting right side up. The A-shift vs. B-Shift described in the user guide confuses me. It doesn't really explain the A-shift.

No problems await you. You still approx 35% into the Downward Shift range when the PJ is not inverted

I am just going to give in and order from VisualApex, I just can't wait to get this thing.... Just give me the okay on the projector placement so I can order it .

You say "mount" .....is that a wall mount/shelf/Cradle, or an Ceiling Mount for inverted positioning? If the latter...absolutely no issues...so do NOT angle the PJ downward. I seriously doubt you'll have any issues on a standard mounting (...non-inverted...) but I also suppose a few purists will weigh in with comments decrying the use of any Lens Shift (H or V) beyond a mere 15%-20% adjustment.

They'd be right if you have to go into the 80%+ range, but within that parameter your not going to suffer any noticeable ill effects.

Key stoning is different. It only takes a little bit of such to create distortion and light lost on the edges to take hold. A good reason to avoid it's use altogether, and a primary advantage of using Lens Shifting instead.

If anyone's positioning is so wacky as to not allow for the generous Shift capability of the Epson, then I'd have to say make whatever smallest possible change / allowance you can to bring everything within a "doable" range.

It'll be worth it.

The best you can get ain't the most expensive...or the least. Just ideally suited for the 8350.

Chief #RPA 168 dedicated PJ ceiling Mount $139.00 @ PP or A/V Ignore the pricing on the Dell sheet.
http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...6lid%3D1342490

Mated to : Peerless ACC 570
http://www.peerlessmounts.com/dyn/Pr...ct.aspx/sp/487 $29.00

Connect the two with Schedule 40 PVC 1-1/2" pipe w/Threaded Couplings Super neat and professional looking with interior Wire drop possible within the 1-1/2" Tube.

Anyone have any input lag numbers for the 8350? I'm assuming that it uses the same Pixelworks PW392 processor in the 8100, which would give around 30-40ms of lag (from others' measurements). I'm planning on using this PJ mainly for video games, so every millisecond counts.

Nope, that one uses big 6in Bolts that bolt into your support beams in the walls. There not little tinny screws that are at most 1" long.

Thats up to you if you want to use it like that. All I'm saying is that I wouldn't risk an item over 1k to some tiny screws even if it does hold it. even a little earthquake or someone running upstairs could shake those screws loose over time causing the shelf to fall. You wouldn't mount a tv on the wall with screws would you? Of Course not, even if screws could hold it up no one would trust it. Same concept here. Its not about the weight its about the value of the item that you have. It's just like a warranty, you want the projector to be covered under warranty, then why wouldn't you want to be 100% sure your shelf wont ever fall.

That's just me. You can take your own risk anyway you want. I'd rather be 100% its not going to fall then 60% sure on a guess that the shelf can sustain that weight for a long time without any natural forces at work.

Dude...an earthquake? I think there would be other things to worry about than the size of screws he used to mount his shelf! I think he is fine with what he has...plus he has been using it for older projectors. Remember, the projector is only 16 pounds. How can you compare hanging a TV on the wall to a small shelf holding a projector??

Anyway, it is his projector and he can do what he wants. Your message comes across a little strong in my opinion.

Was just curious if anyone knows of a throw calculator for this yet?

Also, is anyone going to try a DIY screen with this or what are we guessing is going to be the right screen specs for it.

Looking forward to this, already saved about a grand towards the purchase!!!!

Dedicated theater is framed up and electric is going in.

The colors, the depth, the blacks, the sharpness is a world of difference. I can't wait until somebody posts since calibration settings. Right out of the box the proj is pretty damn, nice!

Hello.

I have a question about the new Epson projectors (namely the one posted), does this projector offer a V stretch mode? I have a DIY lens and have been watching movies in my Infocus x10, which lacking that feature would be a deal breaker for me (until I get an oppo). I am also interested if they still offered the ultra bright "dynamic" modes, since I heard they can go up to 2000 "real" lumens while looking good, which I may plan on making a large screen (some say it can power 25 foot wide screens).

How about the brightness? And what mode did you start with? Just take your time and tell us everything.

My 8350 showed up this afternoon and I've been enjoying it for the last few hours. My screen hasn't arrived yet, so I'm just displaying on my yellow painted drywall. It looked so good, my wife asked why I was buying a screen! This is our first projector, so I won't attempt to give any kind of review. But I will say that I'm quite impressed. I tried watching some HD Hockey, Baseball, and College Football. This will make one hell of a SuperBowl projector!! Even with some ambient light, the picture looked surprisingly bright to me. Looking forward to getting the projector mounted tomorrow as I can't stand having it sit on a piano bench. No buyer's remorse for me!!
