Epson EMP-DM1


The Epson EMP-DM1 is a projector and DVD player combination device. It can project at a native resolution of 854x480 which is a good resolution for st...

Great concept, well-designed, built-in DVD player, wide range of supported formats, good range of ports, integrated speakers

Poor image quality in HD compatibility modes, flyscreen effect when watching DVDs, not suitable for rooms with ambient light

The Epson EMP-DM1 is a great idea for a projector that doesn't quite hit it home. It has quite a few image quality problems but since it's so insanely cheap, it's a great projector for regular families that just want to watch their moves on a wall at...

Epson EMP-DM1


The Epson EMP-DM1 is a manageable size and would be a reasonable purchase as a projector to bring out on special occasions but the overall picture quality and lack of a lens shift feature let it down.

Carry case and handle for easy portability ; Built-in DVD player and speaker ; Dedicated stereo speakers ; Wide range of supported formats

No lens-shift ; Unstable aspect ratio ; Visible screen door effect ; Built-in speaker quality unimpressive

The projector is designed to be mobile. It has a handle on one side that neatly folds onto the projector's body when not required. Also, the EMP-DM1 has a sliding panel that protects the lens and manual focus dial when being transported.

Epson - EMP-DM1


There's a convenient alternative to LCD or plasma widescreens, which gives you a much bigger screen for less money. Home cinema digital projectors are far from the dim, fuzzy picture-makers of a few years back and ...

The concept of the EMP-DM1 is great and for projection in an environment where you're not too fussy about picture or sound quality, it's a really convenient alternative to a TV. It's not an HD projector, though. For that you have to pay more than twice...

Bought a DM1 to show educational DVD's in local prison where I work under contract. It is perfect for the job - light, easy to set up, speakers fine in moderate sized room and of course there are plenty of blank walls to screen onto. Since then it...

Epson EMP-DM1


If it gives disc problems try switching off (and unplugging) the unit, then switching it back on. Also, don't rest a disc in the slot, as this tends to confuse the loading mechanism, leading to these problems.

Format support, built-in DVD player, and USB port

Built-in speakers' quality
