Extras Boost Epson's Projector/DVD Combo

 

The bulky MovieMate 25 outshines strong competition.

This projector is a great buy for its tempting extras--if you can put up with its large size.

Epson MovieMate 25 LCD Projector

 

Review: Late 2005 saw the introduction of a new product category in home-theater projectors: the all-in-one. Epson's MovieMate 25 is a good example; this projector system comes with everything needed to create a basic home theater, including a DVD...

Includes screen; integrated DVD player and speakers; attractive styling; excellent integration of functions; quick setup; two-way mechanical lens shift

Not bright enough; visible screen-door effect; can't resolve full DVD resolution; cannot accept HD or computer sources; no handle; runs hot

Nothing short of a complete theater--including speakers and screen--Epson's MovieMate 25 does it all, although it's not as bright as we'd like.

Excellent color accuracy ; Bright image ; Multiple presets for different room environments and sources ; Good quality sound ; Extremely easy to use ; Easy to hook up ; Great price performance ; Horizontal and vertical lens shift, for easy placement ;...

Lacks component inputs or digital (DVI/HDMI) ; Remote is not backlit (glow in the dark keys just don't glow bright enough) ; Pixels are more visible than competing products using DLP technology - making screen door effect more likely if you sit close....

If you have that $1000 or so, you will be hard pressed to go wrong with the Epson MovieMate 25

Can't beat the price for 80 inches of viewing pleasure

 

When our 32 inch tube shattered, I looked for something bigger as a replacement. While I wanted plasma, the decent 50 inch screens are still over $2000. Since we do not buy digital cable or have any HD programming, I decided to test out the $999...

Very easy to use, stunning size will impress your family

Don't buy for HD/Digital cable
