Epson Powerlite Home Cinema 8100 Projector

 

Even as an audio guy, it?s hard not to be seduced by the amazing video demonstrations sprinkled around the main shows like CES or CEDIA. I think it makes me admit I?m just as much a movie fan as I am music. An offer came my way to review an entire...

Simply, I’m thrilled with this projector as are all my family members, my friends and neighbors. I’m told we are now “that house” that people want to hang out for the theater alone. I believe the Epson highlighted a shortcoming in my room as it became...

Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 8100

 

Inexpensive 1080p home theater projectors, aimed at people who want to watch full HD video on a large screen for a budget price, aren't news anymore. However, most of the truly inexpensive models ($1,000 to $1,500 in this context) are built around a...

Inexpensive. No rainbow effect. Vertical and horizontal lens shift. Two HDMI connectors

Doesn't handle either standard-definition or 1080i input particularly well. Not 3D-capable

The Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 8100 isn't the least expensive budget-priced 1080p home theater projector, but it's easily worth the extra money you'll spend for it.

Overall, the Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 8100 LCD Projector excels in its class of home theater projectors. Combining excellent colors, brightness, lens, features and support, all at an affordable price, this projector is strongly recommended for those...

Affordable price, 1080p, great picture quality, HDMI and other inputs

It’s a large projector; distance (throw) could be better. Black levels are good, but could be even better

The best overall projector for picture quality, technical specifications and price.

Epson Home Cinema 8100

 

Epson is a global competitor when it comes to high quality electronics at a price everyone can afford. The Epson Home Cinema 8100 is one of the best LCD projector TVs we reviewed. The extremely high contrast ratio, 1080p 3LCD technology and overall...

The Epson Home Cinema 8100 has a high contrast ratio and 1080p HD resolution

Epson's website can be hard to use at times

This projector rocks!

 

Best projector on the market in this price range no doubt in my mind.

Bright, crisp, jaw dropping blue ray

None after 6 months

Consumer review by:

WOW! Didn't think I'd get this quality for the price.

 

Super simple operation. Hooked it up and began watching brilliant HD in minutes. Awesome projector with enough control to make the picture pop for your specific setup

None yet. (Maybe a little big)

Second Projector Farly Nice

 

I built my first projector from a lcd monitor and this although having a different throw is insanely adjustable its wonderful. I sold my 50 inch plasma and now use this all the time, works wonderfully.

Specs ; Quiet. I sit in front of it, if you had it ceiling mounted You probably would never notice it ; GUI and nice remote, Light indicators on top are nice ; Halo Reach, Netflix, Blue Ray all look great, you have to use blue rays on this thing...

Large projector, I was surprised and someone asked me if it was a really old one lol ; Wish it had a HDMI passthrough or a sound processor toslink out ; I had to get a HDMI to toslink/HDMI converter from another singe price site but it works great...

Yeahh Boyy!

 

For the price...Actually, I don't even want to word it like so. Because this is a great projector regardless of price.. I'm just happy that it is on the affordable end at the price of an HDTV. On my 128inch screen the picture is amazing. The fan is not...

Cost effective as per bulb replacement / Operating hours ; Great Picture in all formats.. Spectacular in 1080p ; Amazing Black levels for the price ; Extremely Bright when you need it or all the time ; Great Adjustment options. Can mount at many...

Only 60hz Refresh Rate. Will not be able to utilize 3d television / games ; Color xy, AI not efficient and not worth even using ; As with many projectors you need to calibrate color settings for each input. Ex, Blue-ray, HD television, SD Television,...

Perfect

 

Indoors or out it will more than meet you expectations!

The picture from this projector is better than my 1080i television! I project on to a 12 foot outdoor screen and it is simply breath taking! Full 1080p and more than enough lumens for an outdoor theater

It costs a little more than some projectors but well worth the extra few dollars

Color is vivid and accurate out of the box. easy setup and ample lumens in the eco mode

Generates lot of heat. Not a on but wish i know it requires Metric screws
