                The Epson 8100 was my first foray into projectors, and I picked it up for a steal... a very good HD projector at an even thousand dollars (plus tax).

                      From my Amazon review:

                      @HomeTekkie's review is the same as mine:  In different words, I second everything @HomeTekkie found at fault w/ his/her Epson 8100, my experience was nearly identical.  We purchased our projector in mid 2010 for about $1,400, and this was based on the many glowing reviews, and especially the "best in the business customer service" as put forth by the dealer and by what I researched on places like and
