                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). When I first got it, I couldn't wait to check it out. So I took it out of the box, set it on a chair, and hooked it up to my friend's blu-ray player. Even projecting on a wall painted light blue, I was amazed at the quality (the first thing showing was Star Trek's main menu).

                I have since installed it hanging from the ceiling in the home t...

                  I have the Epson 8100 in my basement, dedicated theatre. This is my first projector and I was looking for a good value LCD 1080p with a decent amount of lens shift and zoom to accommodate the placement needed in my room. I have it ceiling mounted with a 15-foot throw to a 100” Elite Screens CineWhite fixed screen. My room is a very dark red with a black screen wall and ceiling, and total light control.

                      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 AVSforum.com and ProjectorCentral.com.
