BUT......that 36000:1 CR is helped along by the special multi-layered Lens that all "Epson Pro" models possess (...negative on the 8350...) and the lower lumen output further makes the appearance of the Black levels more effectively darker.
"Pro" Models also have an even more explicit ability to be calibrated...and a slightly longer warranty.
Oh yeah...and this is important to some...the 9100 comes in a Black casing.
Bluntly put, the 8350 goes a long way toward making the choice between the two models pretty much a no-brainer. Unless you feel you have to go "Black".
Now if it was the newest Epson w/1,000,000:1 On/Off ...........
Maybe next year....ya thin?
