epson 1080 hd budget priced projector

  1. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    Hi everyone! New to the AVS Forum :) We recently bought an Epson 1080p projector (2500 lumens I think) and are looking to buy a $200 ceiling mount w/ DIY install. Our reasoning is that the projector will be 14 inches closer to the screen, gives us more room, and won't need to be calibrated as...
  2. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    Hi! First timer here, I want to get a cheap Epson for my living room because of my fear of rainbows. However, what i find really strange is that the EH-TW570 (maximum resolution of 720p) and the EH-TW5200 (1080p) are priced almost exactly the same in my country. As far as i can see the trade...

    I have owned a refurbished InFocus X10 I bought off eBay for $400 shipped for 10 months now. I have put 2000 hours on it and it has gone from an apartment living room to a dedicated cave in a house. I always knew that its supposed weakness was black level - being that it has a DarkChip1 and...

    Just pulled the trigger on the Optoma when a BNIB Epson 1080BU just showed up locally on Craigslist. Not that interested in 3D but just curious if you guys think the extra $500 is worth it on the Epson. Optoma 757.00 Epson 1250.00 (assume no warranty). I can easily return the Optoma.

    Hi Friends My current Epson 1080 LCD projector is mounted on a rear plaform at the rear of my room pointing centre. The throw distance is about 9.6ft. I am considering several projectors now and would like to understand what should look out for in the manuals to know whether I can have the...
  6. Digital Hi-End Projectors - $3,000+ USD MSRP
    I have the above mentioned projector that I purchased in 2008. I've been 100% happy with it. I currently am using an 80" Black Diamond screen in two story room with bunch of windows with shutters. I think it's .8 Gain now; that might have been all they had back then. I'm planning to move the...

    Used to be into home theater as a hobby but fell out for about 4+ years now. I have an Epson 1080ub? Wondering what's new in this sphere? What comparable modern projector is best right now? How much of an improvement would it be over the 1080ub in pq?

    I just replaced the lamp on my Epson 1080 projector and now something very weird has happened to my picture. Basically there is a now a noticeable horizontal split between the upper 50% of the image and the lower 50%. The upper half of my image seems to be lighter and less vivid, while the...

     Note: Even though I mention some Epson projectors specifically, this method can be applied just as effectively to all projectors. In fact, this calibration philosophy is applicable to all display devices. Stereomandan’s Calibration Method for Epson 1080 (partial), 1080UB, 6100, 6500UB...

    So, got this great projector and now its time for the calibration to begin. Im hopping that some experts can shed light on getting this thing cablibrated right with their postings of their settings. Im aware that all projectors are not exactly alike, but will still like to get some idea of...
