This is one great product!

 

We use this inside and outside and it's always a hit - whether we are having a movie night for kids, or playing Wii or Xbox on it...much fun on a big screen. It's portable and easy to set up. I haven't had any problems in ... Expand full review

Easy set up and use. Can go anywhere. Picture is great. Use of components with this is great. Good quality, sturdy and dependable

Sounds is OK - I added some speakers for surround sound and that did the trick! It's a little pricey - especially when adding in extra speakers and a screen for portability

excellent for class presentations

 

I like the projector because it is easy to carry and set up. It has been dependable so far and I'm on the first bulb with approx. 300 hours of use. The bulbs are less costly than most projectors and one of the reasons I decided on this model. I use a...

I have used this projector since May, 09 with no problems. The advantage of this unit is the built in speakers and built in DVD player. I travel to teach classes and it is convenient not to have to carry a separate DVD player and a set of speakers

I would be nice if the carry case had a velcro flap for the power cord and remote. Also I have to take the batteries out of the remote when I store it. The tight fitting pocket will constantly press the buttons and discharge them

Very happy with this projector

 

I bought this on sale for 750 (canadian dollars), and couldn't be happier with it. I use it for movies and games, and it works great for both. If you are not in the market for an expensive HD projector, this would be a great option for you.

Nice bright picture, built in DVD great quality, digital audio out with DTS, component video in works great with game consoles, easy to use. Comes with case

adjustable feet are limited in length of movement. Large picture is a little pixelated

Awesome! We are still having fun with it!!

 

I am not real sure about our purchase date of this Epson Movie Mate and it was actually under $400. We found it at Sam's. It was the display model, that is how we were able to get such a great deal for it.  We love it and have enjoyed it for years. We...

Came with a screen. Can hook-up VCR, all game systems, computer, satellite, camera, and extra surround sound to it

Bulb are expensive. The only other con I have, which is normal with any projector, it has to be dark outside to watch it outside
