Personally, I always like buying last years models when they begin their closeout pricing. The Epson 8100 is a great deal now.
Yep,, nothing rong with buying last years model,, unless the new offering is going to be some huge improvment in PQ.
Over the years I have owned perhaps a billion projectors,,, Sanyo's, Panasonic's and now 3 Epsons,,, with all my upgrades I dont recall ever getting a "Ohh ma gosh" up-grade (except for going from a Panny AE900 to a Panny AX200) that was an impressive upgrade.
For someone going from say a Sanyo Z1 or a Panny AE500 to an Epson 8100 that would be a very noticable upgrade,,,, but the difference from the Epson 8100 to the Epson 8350 I dont think will be very noticable (going by the spec's I have read so far)
And also,,,, its very important to convince one's self that the new'er projector will not be that great of an improvment over last years model
