    I have a ceiling mounted 8700UB directly above my theater seating. I had to build a 11" riser for the second row, so they could see over the first. The head space is limited. My friend recently hit his head pretty hard on the projector, and the lamp light started flashing. Now the projector...

    Our 8700 started making a clicking fan noise at startup. Most of the time it goes away after a short period of time but sometimes I can notice it after it has been running for awhile. It sounds kind of like when you were a kid and use to attach a playing card to your bike so the spokes would...

    Dear All: I've had my Epson 8700UB for roughly 2 1/2 years, and have had good experience to-date. No real issues so far ... until last night! I was looking away from the screen and all of a sudden, i heard a very loud POP. I looked in my living room, and noticed that the screen was blank...

    I did a fair bit of research and troubleshooting and listening to give as many details as possible. This projector has served me well for over 2 years, always in table mode/right side up. I was tired of perching the PJ on a tall shelf, because the shelf took up too much living room space, so...

    I have an opportunity to get an Epson 8700 for 700 Dollars with a brand new lamp that has never been installed (epson) or i can buy the W1070 new. Any suggestions on this?

    I turned my theater into a bedroom temporarily to accommodate my girlfriend and son moving in. I had all my AV stuff in a corner, ps3, onkyo ht-rc270, Epson 8700 ub hanging etc. I had to move the rack over to the other side of the room to make room for the bed. Now when I try to use my ps3 or...

    I can't seem to find any posts from anyone who had to actually file a claim on their squaretrade warranty for their PJ. Just curious to hear some experiences. I bought a 8700UB brand new last year, off ebay though, with a 4 year squaretrade protection plan. I have a dust blob on the left...

    So I have had my Epson 8700UB for 2 years now and its been pretty good for me. I have recently developed a very slight red and yellow tint to the image but can only be seen on an all white image in the corners. Its not a big deal and not sure if its something that I can fix or not, you can...

    HI, I just recently sold my epson 8700 ub projector. I really liked the unit, but i decided to sell it and try the 3D technology and something newer. I have been doing my research and read up alot on DLP so i am willing to give it a shot. I have read how good the mitsubishi 7900 dlp is and...

    All, I have been planning on buying an Optoma HD131Xe for the bonus room in my new house. The room is approx 25ft x 14ft. Will project on a 106in screen (was planning on 1.8 gain). I want the room to be more of a family room and not a dedicated home theater. So, for sports, etc there will be...

    Hello all, Can anyone recommend a reliable place / website to buy a lamp for 8700ub? I've had mine for about a year and a half, with 975hrs on the lamp, but it's starting to get very dim. I got it as a refurb from Visual Apex, so who knows if they just reset the timer I was debating getting...

    Hi all, I've spent the majority of the past year becoming well acquainted with the audio side of things - building, measuring, swapping equipment furiously to get where I am now. Please excuse my 'newbness' when it comes to the video side of things. Now that my audio and screen situation...

    Hello everyone, In short - wife and I were planning to get this projector. (movies, and games, plus videos/photographed viewable as a media server via the PC on the network with the PS3)... However, saw a comment this weekend regarding lag. One person commented that the Panasonic ae8000 is...

    I'm getting the upgrading bug again. Before changing out my 8700 i was wondering if it would be possible to live with it on dynamic for a while. 120" wide 2:35 screen is what i'm doing next, so will the 8700 be able to do the job temporarily. For my personal taste the blacks are incredible and...

    My first bulb died at approx 900 hrs. I am now using the free bulb that was part of the deal when I purchased the 8700UB. I have approx 800hrs on it now and want to get another backup. Are the non OEM bulbs good/reliable? I found some in $70 range from a few places. Or should I get an OEM...

  20. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    I am in the process of choosing a new projector for a dedicated theater room (although it will also be used for some gaming). Because it is in a basement with very little light, a projector that excels in black levels is preferred. One projector that I kept coming back to was the Epson 8700UB-...
