  20. Optoma HD8200 or Epson 8350

    Home Theater Projectors
    i was hoping to get some thoughts about these two projectors. I had my mind set on the Epson 8350 but just saw the Optoma HD8200 for about $300 more than the 8350. From what I've read it seems like the 8200 is a little higher end but a little older. I've read (and seen) great things about the...
