    Saw the BenQ w1080st for under $900 on Amazon and pulled the trigger. I had been coming from a Epson 8350 which I had been happy with for a while, but I never was a big fan of LCD projectors and I sit very close to my screen (1.1 SW) so I wanted to go 1080p DLP for my next projector. I also...

    Gentlemen, I come to you as I am in a conundrum. I'm looking at upgrading my Epson 8350 projector to something a bit better. I can't say how much I've enjoyed the 8350 since it's a great projector, and I only got it for $899 at Frys a few years ago, but now I'm looking for that next upgrade...

    Okay, so I purchased an Epson 2030 as my first projector, and it's not working out. Here's the setup in the basement - ceiling is 9'8" tall, I would like the projector ceiling mounted 11-12' away from the screen, and a 110" diagonal image with the bottom edge around 24" off the floor. I...

    Ok, last week I ordered my new Panasonic AE8000 projector, Pioneer Elite SC75 and Pioneer Elite BDP62 Blu Ray player. The HDMI cable I have going from my current receiver to my Epson 8350 projector is several (approx. 8) years old and is obviously a first generation cable. I do not know the...

    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...
  11. Screens
    Hi all. I've been enjoying my Epson 8350 now for a couple of years, but I feel I can get better pq with a better screen. The throw is 12 feet with controlled lighting. Right now I'm using the fixed frame 110 inch, white screen from visual apex. It's not a terrible screen but sometimes I can...

     Sorry, I really tried to find an answer!   I have an epson 8350, ceiling mounted, 13' from my screen.   Just put up a 114" elite sable that replaced a 104" "pull down screen".   To my knowledge, both screens are 16:9.   The image (cable) filled my old 104" screen perfectly (no white...

    I'm just about to call Epson for the umpteenth time - I've had 3 different 8350's - all with dust blob issues among other issues. I'm wondering if other projectors they sell have the same proclivity for dust blob issues as the 8350 has demonstrated? Thanks in advance for any and all replies!
