The projector is perfectly level. I am using some lens shift. I'll try to capture the issue with my camera and post it up to see if it's normal or not. I really don't want to deal with shipping this out and getting another projector with issues, which seems to be par for the course with Epson.

Edit: Called Epson, and they're sending me another unit. Gearing up to start the game, but hopefully the new unit performs better than my current unit. The red hazy tint is only viewable on a white image, and isn't really noticeable in movies. Hopefully I'm not making a mountain out of a mole hole here. I just want a projector without issues, even if this is nit picky.

You may find the odd horror story every once in awhile, but I can say that Epson's customer service the finest I've ever experience from any company in my entire life. And I'm not exaggerating. For me, they have been exemplary.

We'll see. I've read enough about people getting replacements with their own issues, and going through 3-4 projectors before one is acceptable enough to keep. I should have bought new, and not factory refurbished.

Yes, but what you don't read are the numerous people who get one replacement and are completely satisfied. These are the people who don't comment. The only ones in general who take the time to comment on their experiences are the ones who had bad experiences.


You always hear about the plane crash that kills 200 people but you hear nothing about the thousands of flights that occur every day without incident.


In any case, what other company with keep sending you projectors until you get one you're happy with? Without costing you a dime? Shipping a 20 lb PJ back and forth ain't cheap.

The only thing I've noticed with my 8345 is when I'm using my computer I get what appears to be snowflake like effects just on the lower left hand side.

out of focus- throw distance

I have a almost 3 yr old 8350, with just over 1000 hrs on bulb, been using a 100" screen with a 13' 4'" throw with good results, I recently thought picture was getting a little dull/fuzzy, then I upgrades to an elite 120" screen, now I think the problem is a little worse, projector central pro calculator says my 13' 4" throw is not optimal, they recommend 16' 1", so looking for opinions, is my fuzzy dull problem the projector being to close? or is it my bulb output, or likely both? thanks in advance

I like your optimism. We'll see how this replacement fares.
