The Best Projectors Under $ 1,000

Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 8350 Projector

The 8350 is a 3LCD projector which uses Epson upgraded inorganic LCD panels (the key improvement in this model over last year's excellent 8100 with cheaper organic LCD panels). Therefore, the contrast and black levels on this projector are outstanding. This model does not have digital keystone adjustment, so you must mount the projector level and then shift the image with the lense adjustments.

The 8350 has 5 main "modes" and each is suited to a different use and lighting condition. "Dynamic" mode is bright, very bright. At a 100" picture size, the image is bright and clear, even with ambient light from 4 windows at the side. "Living Room" mode is a touch less bright, but ups the contrast and gives slightly deeper blacks. For night-time viewing, the Cinema, Natural, and HDMI Color modes are all excellent. Switching between modes is a easy, with a dedicated "color mode" button on the excellent (and lighted!) remote.

The projector focuses well, and the image is even throughout the range, with crisp details corner to corner. A handy "pattern" button on the remote projects a nice, crisp pattern for focus and image centering. Screen-door effects are basically non-existent, and you could only make out the pixel matrix from less than about 3 feet from the screen. At 1080p, with a nice Blu Ray source, the result is stunning. this setup with a good sound system is better than most theaters.

This projector is all about performance at an amazing price. Buy Here
