 Whether you're at home or on the go the Epson MovieMate 85HD Projector will take your viewing experience to new heights.

The 85HD is first of all a powerful 16:9 aspect ratio, multimedia projector which implements 3LCD Technology for dynamic color and contrast, backed by 2,500 lumens of light output; but that's just the beginning. More than a projector, the MovieMate 85HD is a portable entertainment center incorporating a DVD player and built-in stereo audio system which handles movies, audio and video devices, karaoke and gaming consoles.

While ideal for home installations due to its attractive compact profile, the MovieMate really comes into its own on the road or with friends. At 9.3 lbs you can just grab the convenient built-in handle and your choice of entertainment media, find an outlet and setup is complete. The short throw lens is capable of projecting an image 8x larger than a 40" TV, and even if the venue is space-challenged you can display a 60" wide screen image from only 6 feet away. That means you can screen your favorite content whether it's a post-game party or a presentation.

The integrated multi-format DVD / CD player supports MP3, WMA and MPEG playback, while built-in Dolby Digital and DTS audio decoders are capable of reproducing surround sound fidelity and sonic realism from your favorite movie soundtracks. Alternately, you can load up a jump drive with your favorite photos and give JPEG slideshows via the USB host port.

The MovieMate 85HD has the fine points covered too. Wide connectivity including HDMI, keystone correction and a 1.35x digital zoom lens are all on board. The cost-efficient E-TORL lamp lasts up to 5,000 hours in Eco mode and runs at a barely-audible 28dB. More than a projector, The MovieMate 85HD is a traveling entertainment hub. It's safe to say that the MovieMate 85HD brings a lot to the table.

          Comments about Epson MovieMate 85HD Projector:

          Our family moves every three years with the military so we cannot invest in a dedicated home theater room. The Epson 85HD is working out nicely in the meantime. I have paired it with a Sony sound bar system and a pull-down screen in our living room. When we are not watching movies, everything stows out of sight. Then, when it is time to watch a movie, within five minutes we transform the room into a home theater room.
          Without the added sound bar, the projector leaves you wanting more sound out of the movie. The HD picture is more than adequate and displays just fine during the day with the window shades open.

          I highly recommend this product.

              I purchased this projector for watching outdoor movies with the fam. Picked up a cheap white tarp that is 14x10 and plan to see how it works with this size before I go to a more expensive vinyl tarp. First time we hooked it up under a pavilion, second time we used it in a garage. The picture looks sharp and the brightness level is what I was expecting. The built-in speaker is there as a backup in case you don't have another set of speakers to output to (stereo or coax out). Very convenient to have a built-in DVD player. Great little projector for fun outdoor movie nights.

                we use this for projecting movies onto our living room wall. the quality of the image is really, really nice. the speaker is out the back/side - i.e. behind the projector, so late at night, we prop up a large painting to reflect the sound so we dont have to turn it so far up.(the sound gets very loud)

                this was a great purchase :)

                    Wow. What a product. The projector was simple to set up. We watched a movie on the side of our barn on a cold November night and the picture and sound were very clear. Only downside; colder weather setting in soon so we may have to wait until spring to watch movies outside.

                      I unpacked the MovieMate and had it up and running within the half hour. I like that I can just pop in a DVD, or hook it up to my laptop. There are other options as well, but I wanted a simple plug and play type of set-up, and that is what it offers.

                      Sound is great even without external speakers, but I could augment with an external set if I wish. Clarity is good and I just love the feature that allows me to take a break - it whites out the screen and waits for me to return.

                      Easy Fun!

                            Very easy to use projector that gives a great picture. I use this to project movies on a 120" screen in my living room. The high lumens means you don't have to have it perfectly dark to get a great picture. To watch a movie, just turn it on and pop a DVD in the built in upconverting DVD player. This projector has sound built in. The only drawback for some is that the speakers are in the back. In my setup that means the sound projects away from me making it a little hard to make out dialogue. My solution was to buy a sound bar that had digital coaxial out. It improved the sound and now I can get a great theater like experience! The feature I like best is the coffe break button on the remote. Push it anytime and it pauses the movie and lights up the screen bright white. It's great for short timeouts where you need light, but don't want to turn on the overhead lights.

                              I use this projector outside b/c it has a DVD player already built in. The picture and sound is great. So far there hasn't been any problem with it. I would definitely recommend it for outside use or as a second projector.

                                    Love the ease of use. This really is plug and
                                    Play. Picture quality is great. I'm not picky but just looking for something to replicate the movie experience at home and this does the job just fine.

                                      hook-up better speakers in larger setting; can even use 1/8 headphone jack w volume control to do that. Projector works very well even w light coming in daylight windows; though of course you do even better when darker. Can adjust projector brightness. Easy, very portable and fun!

                                            I'm an artist who often uses video, either on its own or in an installation. I really like this projector because it can be as simple or as complicated as you want. If you want to do something rough, everything is contained in one piece of equipment, one cord to plug in, and you're ready to go (also, just one piece of equipment to lock down, if you are worried about theft). But, if you want to project HD, you can hook up a media player or laptop easily, or, if you want better sound, hooking up better speakers is an option. The one thing I was worried about was the fact that I couldn't adjust color/contrast settings, but, honestly, it really hasn't been a problem, the images always look great. I was particularly happy with how it performed in gallery situations where its not absolutely dark. The only drawback is that it can't be ceiling mounted, maybe one day someone will make the perfect projector, but, until then, this one is great.

                                            Just opened the box and used at a labor day party.
                                            After a few movies my 12 year son was the chief projectionist. its that easy.
                                            Great picture and sound for the price.

                                              Comments about Epson MovieMate 85HD Projector:

                                              Have had no issues with this projector. Works great and saves on a messy interface of a DVD/Projector. No cables to hide!
