Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 8350

 

The Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 8350 ($1,299 direct) isn't the least expensive home theater projector you can find, but it's Epson's lowest-cost 1080p model and certainly priced low enough to count as affordable. It also offers some useful features...

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

Lacks the 3D support found in many current DLP projectors

Although it lacks the dark blacks of more expensive projectors, the Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 8350 offers more than acceptable image quality at a budget price.

Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 8350 Review

 

Undoubtedly one of the finest low-price projectors we've ever seen. An extraordinary picture for $1,299.....Editor's Choice Award.....

Great, but...

 

A real shame that such a good box has what is apparently a software limitation so irritating. Try another maker, or complain to Epson BEFORE you buy, they might listen then. Also, note that all Epson HD projectors are the same (according to Epson)....

image quality excellent, quiet, remote good

big pain, will not allow the ASPECT chance function through HDMI. Cannot always prperly display 4:3 and some 16:9 content. This is intentional, but silly, and VERY annoying. Epson admits this, but has not addressed it. Settings confusing too

Makes a great first impression

 

Having owned one of the best plasma HDTVs known to man, the 50" Pioneer Plasma, 7th Generation, (non Elite, one generation before Kuro, but still kicks a**) my eyes are spoiled rotten, with inky deep blacks that go into infinity and a color resolution...

Crystal clear picture ; Easy set up ; Lots of tweakable options ; Incredible color ; Super quiet

No manual keystone adjustment ; A bit large

Solid product if not a little larger than I expected

 

I have recently renovated my basement and waffled between wall-mounted 3D TV (Samsung was probably leading candidate) and front-projector. Light levels were low enough and 3D content not as main-stream as I like, so I went projector. In the end, the...

Big, bright, high-quality picture ; Pretty quiet operation ; Great for low-to-medium lighted rooms ; Relatively easy install for DIYers like me

A little bulky for low-ish ceiling ; Lens shifting is now quite what I thought it would be

Love it!!

 

The hardest part of the entire installation was the cheapo mount that I bought. Aligning the projector and configuring the color settings took 10min tops. And this was my first projector. Overall I'm happy with it.

Image quality. Setup was a breeze. Fairly quiet ; I have this thing paired with a Navi 100" screen and looks amazing. Playing N64 Mario Kart on this thing is crazy!! Same goes for Black Ops 2 on PC

None

Love it!!!!

 

For the money, best projector out there. I've had it over a year and use it in multiple locations and everyone oo's and ah's over it everytime I set it up.

Easy set up, looks great! Two HDMI inputs very quiet

no keystone adjustment (not a big deal if you install it correctly) puts out a little heat
