Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 8350 review

Most talked about features of this model:

  • Sharpness: Provides excellent contrast with a 50,000:1 contrast ratio. This means the the brightest colors will be 50,000 times brighter than the darkest (black) making for a great home theater experience.
  • The 3-chip technology inside provides for both extreme brightness and unmatched reliability
  • Provides 2000 lumens of light. Making brilliant images on the screen possible whether your viewing in the day or nighttime.
  • Delivers a high definition experience with true HD 1080p picture resolution.

Before taking you through all the different reasons why current customers love the Epson Powerlite Home Cinema 8350, here’s a video review which does a very nice job at explains the different features of this model:


  • Configuration of set-up makes easy it easy to fit any room! Made possible by both vertical and horizontal lens shift capabilities. The vertical and horizontal lens shifts are especially useful if installing the project overhead.
  • HDMI Connectivity: A single cable provides you both HDMI video and audio HD quality.
  • Fujinon Lens: A optically pure lens.
  • A Big 2.1 Zoom Ratio. But what does this actually mean? Take a 100 inch screen as example. The zoom ratio allows the Epson Powerlite Home Cinema 8350 to sit as close as 10 feet or as far 21 feet from the screen and sit fit the image perfectly on the screen.
  • The back side of the projector (input side) has all of the inouts you want to hook up practically any source: 2 HDMI inputs, S-Connector (VCR, Laser disc), component, composite, VGS (laptops, tablets, game consoles, Blu-ray, DVD, etc).
  • Clean and smooth ideal for fast moving video (action movies, sports and gaming). The technology inside this projector adjusts the lighting 60 times per second.
  • Two-year limited warranty.

Wanted to included this video below of a guy watching a movie with this projector on a 96 inch screen. He also does a good job of explaining the features as the video roles. The image looks sharp and pops out. What do you think?

If you’re already set on buying this model then we want to mention the price differences you might come across online or maybe already have. We found many vendors selling the Epson Powerlite 8350 for over $1000.

Most common questions asked about this Model: 

Q: Easy to adjust the image to the screen when mounting to the ceiling?

A: Many projectors rely on something called the keystone correction to angle the lens to the screen after mounting on the ceiling. This process is somewhat old-school and can be tedious and difficult.

The vertical and horizontal lens adjustments offered by the Epson Powerlite 8350 makes installing on the ceiling and aligning with the screen a easy. You could even be many inches off center and still align it with the screen with no pixels lost.

Q: Do you need a separate audio cable to connect speakers?

A: No, there is no audio in or out to the projector. Only requires connecting the HDMI to the receiver.

Q: Does it come with HDMI cables?

A: No, you will need to buy these and they are fairly inexpensive. You will probably pay $20 or less. If you plan on mounting the projector to the ceiling make sure you buy a HMDI cable which is long enough.

Q: Will this Home Cinema Projector work with Apple TV?

A: Yes, it has HDMI inputs which are required for Apple TV.

Q: Largest screen size?

A: We have heard claims that the Epson Powerlite Home Cinema 8350 will produce amazingly sharp images on screens up to 300″. We have heard from one user who says the projector works perfectly on on a screen 11 ft x 7 ft on a paint wall in the basement.

Q: How far should you sit this projector back to fit a 100″ screen?

A: To get the best screen fit and picture the projector will need to sit between 12-13 feet from the screen.

Q: Good choice for movies, sports, gaming?

A: Yes, awesome performance in all three areas!

Q: Is this a good choice for classroom presentations?

A: It would work and probably work very well. But for this particularly use you could probably pick-up a suitable projector for half the price.
