PowerLite Home Cinema 8350 1080p 3LCD Projector
My first home theater experience
Having seen my son's "man cave" with a video projector/screen, I wanted one to watch sporting events and movies. After on line reviews and recommendation from the BestBuy "Geek", I purchased the PowerLite 8350 Home Theater Projector. The installation instructions were sufficient for me, a non-geek", to install and set up. I could not be happier with the picture quality, particularly HD. There are sufficient features to "fine tune" all aspects of the video image. I invited my best friend over to see it and he was blown away. One can't go wrong with this product for a home theater.

Exceeded My Expectations
Had very high expectations based on other's review but this thing really performs. I couldn't be happier. I have a great home theater now. It was super-easy to set up and I was able to start watching movies within a half hour.
Only drawback is constant stream of friends, neighbors, and family wanting to come over and watch HD movies. I'm going broke on beer and chips!

Excellent Value & Warranty Service
I purchased a refurbished EPSON 8350 projector from online retailer. The unit shipped from the retailer had a defect focus ring - so I immediately had to access the dedicated EPSON customer service line advertised by the retailer.
While it was not ideal to have to deal with a defective unit EPSON customer service was excellent - they shipped me a replacement unit that I recieved within 3 days.
The new unit has worked flawlesly. I have been very impressed with the image quality and for the price I think that it is an exceptional value.

Good Projector but some flaws
I really really like this projector. It has a great image and is a great value. You get a ton of projector power with your dollar. My only complaint is a (off and on )slight dimming I get when I watch. Its almost like a flicker. I went through all of the trouble shooting with Epson but they said it would need sent in. It just went out of warranty so I think I will have to wait since I would not be able to afford the repair cost. Great projector but just a little disappointed with the dimming. I would have gave it 5 stars if not for the glitch because it really does produce a nice image.

Second one works well
I bought this for my dedicated home theater when we finished the basement. The room is fully dark with no windows and is about 12'x20'.
I bought the projector in March of 2013 but due to delays, it wasn't installed (ceiling mount) until December of 2013. It worked well for the first month but then started giving me an Iris Error. I would unplug it and fire it back up and it would work fine. Setting the auto iris to on or off made no difference in the frequency of this error. After reading about the problems many have had with this, I called Epson and they sent me a refurbished unit.
It arrived very quickly and in a package that was re-usable with a return label. Although it was refurbished, it had no scratches on it and it has performed flawlessly for the past 4 months. It is worth doing some fine tuning on the settings based on your use and there are many websites with opinions on what is best. The standard settings are fairly bright and with a dark room, I didn't need it that bright and I'm hoping that lowering it may extend the bulb life as they are $$$.
All-in-all, if this one holds up well, I am happy with the projector!

The projector has no output for audio at all. If we connect projector with laptop or Ipad 2, there is no connection for audio. to any speakers or sound bars from projector. It is useless projector.

A pro's choice
Outstanding! Color, Brightness, Contrast, noise level all better than expected. I have owned many projectors from the very expensive CRTs years back to other LEDs and this is really an excellent projector. It is very easy to watch and you never miss a single detail even in darker scenes and no artifacts. The white and black levels are amazing and the color and crispness of the images are some of the best I have seen and the set-up is way easy. I have a LG 47" 120Hz LED and the picture from the Epson projector is better on my 82" screen made with a Da-Lite pearl material. I am exceeding 18 foot lamberts off the screen. Oh, BTW...I design and build professional audio and video systems for a living and had any projector to choose from...I picked this one.

Purchased a Epson 7220 at first, but the projector image could not be adjusted to fit on a 120 inch screen. After calling Epson 3 times for adjustment tips, I asked the representative what will fit my needs for a home theater system. They suggested the 8350. This projector image can be adjusted to fit where the projector is mounted 16 feet from the screen just by the turn of the ring around the lens. I admit, I did not want to spend the extra money, but the representative convinced me this will fit my needs. A larger projector, but very easy to set up and used the same ceiling Epson universal ceiling mount purchased for the first projector. Great Machine!!

So far so good
Bought this projector when my 52" lcd tv quit working. Was able to fix the tv but now we use
the projector all the time. It's great for sports, I can virtually fill the wall in my living room.
