We had an Optoma HD80 that i thought was great until it started having shadowing problems. We decided to go the cheap route and replace it with the Optoma HD20 and I was disappointed. The picture quality was just not as sharp as we were used to so we returned. I read good reviews about the Epson 8700 but was skeptical because I had also heard great things about the Optoma HD20.

However, I was shocked at how much better the picture was. Images in the background were so much sharper than either of the Optoma projectors. Right out of the box the picture was great without the need to tweak it very much. It also runs noticeably quieter than the Optomas. One nice feature is it has an automatic shutoff if there is no input. We have kids and sometimes they are careless about turning everything off and those lamps go quickly if you leave it on all night!

It is quite a bit larger then the Optomas which wasn't a problem for us but could be if you have limited space. Really the only negative so far. So, if you are looking for a movie theater quality picture, then you really need to avoid the temptation of the under $2,000 projector and consider the 8700.

Early this year the old Mitsubishi was showing its age and a new bulb (and then another new bulb) didn't help. Researched the Epson 8700 and several others for a month or so, then pulled the trigger and got the Epson, a $100 rebate and a second bulb - all for $1999, delivered. Great warranty too.

I was and still am amazed by this machine! Easy to set up in my already built home theater - I just put it on the shelf right where the old Mitsubuishi was at 13 feet out, dialed it in as to zoom and focus on my 110" screen, plugged in the sound and away we went. The difference in brightness and sharpness was huge. Absolutely brought tears to my eyes. Of course, the tweaking is a never-ending (and plenty fun) part of buying a new toy, so yes, the Epson gets the knobs turned a bit from time to time.

I have a 6-month-old Panasonic Blu-ray player feeding HDMI-1 and a venerable Toshiba HD-DVD player feeding the other source. Call me strange, but I like the way the Toshiba plays dvd's better than the job the Panasonic Blu-ray does with them. The picture just looks...finer, somehow. As a condo dweller, my Sony sound system is very small and basic so as not to startle the neighbors, but it works fine for me. Although my theater is totally light-tight with black/dark red walls/floor/ceiling, I prefer the "Living Room" brightness setting which is about all the brightness you'll need on a 110" very light gray screen. I'm no expert as to all the other arcane settings and measurements you read about in these reviews - all I know is the picture is fantastic on just about anything you feed it from a Blu-ray, and many dvd's. Most recently watched: "Viva Las Vegas" and "Gamera 3 - Revenge of Iris." Yes, I love old movies.

This is my first projector I've owned (having been jealous of friends who owned projectors over the years), upgrading from a 61" DLP. I wish I would have done it earlier, as the projector costs roughly the same as the DLP did for a much better viewing experience.

I have this in a light-controlled basement, ceiling-mounted, projecting onto a 110" Elite Screens "CineWhite" screen [...]
I've had this projector long enough (almost a year) to feel fairly confident as to it's reliability and bulb life at this point. So far I have not had a bulb go out, but I did swap the original out w/ about 1300hrs on it to see if I could see a brightness difference w/ a new bulb. I do, but it's not incredibly obvious unless you're looking for it. I would plan on changing bulbs out every 1500-2000hrs or so, before it becomes noticeable in day to day movie/tv watching. If you get more, consider it a bonus! For me, this works out to be roughly one bulb per year which is about what I expected. If I ever need to, I can stretch this out of course.

Couple this projector, a nice screen, and a full blown sound system - you will never want to go to the cinema again. I can't imagine going back to smaller flat-panel screens for the main movie room, as this simply takes the experience to the next level.

Pros:
* Relatively inexpensive for the picture quality
* Pretty much a movie theater at home!
* Reliable bulb performance
* Great picture quality for the price. Amazing really
* Little to no fan noise
* Fairly well calibrated out of box

Cons:
* Perhaps not just this projector, but I found lining this up w/ the ceiling mount I bought was a real pain in the butt. This is a large/heavy projector for home use, so keep that in mind.

Just to set the stage, my projector lives in a clean dust free and temperature controlled environment. I cleaned the air filter 3 times in 2 years although I have never observed the filter to be dirty.

Bought this in March of 2011. Replaced first bulb after 740 hours, with the "bonus bulb" included in original purchase. Bulb rated at 4000 hours. All viewing done in THX mode, so not high brightness setting. 647 hours later bulb burned out again. Tech support sent free replacement bulb (seems like they know it goes through bulbs). Replaced bulb and noted purple line at bottom of screen. Tech support sent refurb projector within 2 days. Refurb unit had colors out of alignment. Next refurb unit is en route.

I think they know it eats bulbs and that's why they offered the free bulb with purchase and another after the bulb warranty had expired. I have no confidence in the refurb process after receiving a poorly packed and inop unit to replace the one I have.

Not to be all negative, the picture is awesome when the bulb is new. Eventually the picture dims and then the bulb dies. Perhaps this is not typical but if you search the net you will find that they have a fairly liberal bulb replacement policy.

I'll go with another manufacturer for my next projector, unless the next one I receive works like it should and doesn't eat bulbs like that's what it was made for.
