However, does Epson 8350 Projector really deliver outstanding performance as expected from it? You will know the answer in the matter of minutes here.

First of all, let’s begin by differentiating the LCD (Liquid Color Display) and DLP (Digital Light Processing) projectors. There are actually several technical differences between those two. Nonetheless, to keep things simpler, let’s focus in the brightness and contrast. Due to the embedded technologies within, LCD projectors offer brighter pictures compared to what DLP deliver. In fact, it takes a DLP projector around 30% more lumens to show a similar brightness level delivered by an LCD projector. However, DLP projectors show us higher contrast compared to LCD projectors. Whether to choose a DLP or LCD projector is really a matter of preference and need.

However, comes at almost half the price of UB series, it’s hard for users to complain about this fact.

One interesting improvement made by Epson is in the lamp life specification. Frequent users of digital projectors will understand that a projector’s lamp is not something cheap and replacing it will take additional service cost. However, Epson mentioned that the lamp in Home Cinema 8350 will last for about 4,000 hours before the replacement is needed. That’s way longer than most models available in the market and will enable users to save more money in the long run. Additionally, the improvement also enables this unit to consume less power compared to other projectors. This unit, with a 200-watt lamp, delivers excellent brightness which usually takes other projectors 250 to 300 watt lamps to do.

So, does Epson 8350 Projector deliver the expected performance out of it? It’s up to you to decide. However, it certainly doesn’t become the bestselling projector in Amazon store with 36 satisfied users without valid reasons.
