Epson MovieMate 85HD

 

The Epson MovieMate 85HD makes it easy to quickly set up a room as a temporary home theater to watch movies at large size.

Instant theater with 720p projector, integrated DVD player, and stereo audio system. Portable.

No controls for adjusting brightness, contrast, or other common settings.

Epson MovieMate 85HD Projector First Look

 

The new MovieMate 85HD is Epson's new flagship sporting a 3-chip, 3LCD optical engine. With 720p native resolution, built in 10w speakers, and an integrated DVD player, the 85D needs only a wall.

With an obvious focus on gaming and parties, the big draw of the Epson MovieMate 85D is the price. At a penny under $900, it is practically an impulse buy - especially this time of year. While you can get cheaper versions of this type of product, they...

Epson MovieMate 85HD Review

 

Buying a projector to show movies on the side of your house on warm summer evenings is akin to owning a boat. It's an absolute blast the first few times, but it soon devolves into a chore: Drag out the projector. Drag out the speakers. Drag out the...

The 85HD’s video resolution is quite good for what it is. The black levels could be better, but our main kvetch has to do with resolution. The projector is equipped with a good upscaler for converting DVD video to 720p, but we really wish Epson had...

Epson MovieMate 85HD

 

The MovieMate 85HD, first of all, is true HD - the 85HD is officially 720p or standard HDTV resolution (1080p is the highest HDTV), and that's still 2.25 times the resolution of a standard DVD player (like the one that's built in). Of course it has a...

Very bright picture, measured even higher than Epson's 2500 lumen claim ; Good color ; Built in DVD/CD/MP3/etc. player ; Wide range of inputs, including HDMI and computer ; Most useful: Movies, Sports, Games, PCs, iPads, iPhones Androids ; 10 watt...

Could have blacker blacks ; Should have an SD card slot ; Has standard DVD player instead of a Blu-ray player ; Remote control not backlit ; Limited image controls ; Audio system (which does have good volume) could stand to be even better

Seems to me, that the MovieMate 85HD is a competent home entertainment system. It's well equipped, it works with all kinds of sources in addition to its internal DVD players. The 85HD seems reasonably priced, when considered against stand-alone...

Epson MovieMate 85HD review

 

The Epson MovieMate 85HD is a portable, all-in-one home theatre system, complete with a 720p high definition projector, integrated DVD player and built in speakers. All that's missing is a wall or a sheet (or if you want to get fancy, a screen) to...

Consumer review (bhphotovideo.com)

Good product

 

Bought this product for back yard use. Good product, easy to setup. Wish it was 1080P instead of just 720P. Would be nice to have a Blue Ray player as well. Reason for only 4 stars. However overall this was a great buy. Kids love it.
