    I've been using my epson 8345 for a few months now and its time to hide those pesky wires. The projector is on the ceiling of a 2nd floor town home. I don't have access to the crawl space between the 2nd and 3rd floors. Picking into the crawl space it is about 3ft high and with wooden trusses...

    Does the 8345 have inorganic panels? I am replacing Epson 6100. Could get 8345 new for $900 shipped, 8350 refurb shipped for $975 or 8350 new shipped for $1300. I would rather save money and buy the 8345, but if the 8350 would last twice as long because of better panels, it may be the better...

    Hi all, I purchased a 6100 refurb for $800 from Projector People 37 months ago and could not have been more pleased. I just passed 4k hours. Now I have a red band across the top and a blue one across the bottom. I project at 120 inch on a wall, and the bands are about three fingers high all...

    I bought myself a BenQ W1070 but discovered that it is way to loud for my taste. My brother has a BenQ W1000+ which is almost silent, I am so jealous of his projector. I have decided to sell my brand new projector and acquire a more quite projector! I do not want the projector to be audible...

    Hi, below picture is selfexplanatory. I decided go for projector but there is a limitation in my room. It could be only hooked as shown on the picture, and screen will be of course opposite. The problem is in already installed light in ceiling directly in the way of projected picture. I would...

     I'm just setting up my recently purchased Epson 8345, and I have some concerns about its image quality. Have I got a bum device which I should exchange, or is this image quality about what should be expected? This picture is a grid pattern with each line being 2 pixels wide. The image is from...

    Hi all. I am pretty new to the forums and to projectors in general. I recently moved into a new apartment (rental) and we have a pretty big living room so I decided to look into getting a projector. We have a 47" LG that we use as our daily TV, but want something bigger to watch sports...

    Hi, I am planning on replacing my current flat screen with a projector screen. I had bought my TV(46") back in my apartment where it was mounted for a 7-8' viewing distance. Now in my house I have a much large viewing distance(closer to 15' for TV) and I find the 46" TV too small for some of...

    Hi, I was going to get a 65" LCD when I realized even that will be too small for my space to realize 1080P benefits. I decided to venture to home projection instead. What do you think of the components i intend go with? Space: 35' x 20' x 104" Open floor space consisting of living room...
