      Comments about Epson MegaPlex MG-850HD Projector:

      I purchased this product to use for presentations (workshops, small group settings, etc.), and needed something that could project in a well-lit room, but was also portable enough to not weigh me down. It comes loaded with a lot of features, such as the iPod/iPad/iPhone dock, which is great, but probably best for in-home use. I was hoping to show Keynote presentations from my iPad using the dock, but keynote forces the iPad to use landscape orientation, and the dock is for vertical only, so you can't really operate the iPad too well.

      It would be nice if the projector was smaller or weighed less, especially if you want to travel with it a lot. But, in order to get the right amount of lumens for a bright room, you have to go with a larger projector.

      For the home theater folks, this projector is an excellent choice. For the presenter on the go, it's okay, but there may be better options out there or forthcoming.

          Comments about Epson MegaPlex MG-850HD Projector:

          I use the MegaPlex MG-850HD in my living room to display HDTV on a large blank wall from a table about 12 feet away. The picture is excellent. It's very bright even when the lights are on. The adjustment for focus is very good. I am quite pleased. I do not use the integrated sound. Rather I hook the audio from my cable box to good desktop speakers.

              Our local camera club was in need of a new projector to show photos for judging. A visiting guest speaker happened to have this one and showed us how useful it could be. We are just getting used to using it and haven't found anything about it that's "not so great."

                Comments about Epson MegaPlex MG-850HD Projector:

                I bought this product mainly to use for presentations of videos and slideshows from an iPad or iPhone. For the most part it does this well. I wish that I could go through the photo library on my iPad without having to use the slideshow feature, because sometimes it's nice to pause a little longer on one photo. You can do this if you're viewing photos off of a USB drive. The logo capture feature is a nice idea but limits you to a 400 x 300 px capture size and you can't resize the photo within the capture screen. I did watch a movie from iTunes and it was great. I do wish the projector itself had an audio out so that I could attach external speakers to it rather than running an audio out cable from my iPad which I haven't tried yet but is a little awkward even if it does work. Overall I like it and I think it will be a good tool and a fun way to do movie night.

                  Comments about Epson MegaPlex MG-850HD Projector:

                  --- Non native English speaker - efforts required - Thanks ---

                  This is the first projector I own. I have used several ones temporary and so far I like this one very much. I use it to setup temporal "family theater". The image quality is really good and the sound is decent. There is all standard connections so this is quite easy to setup and portable. I have try, for fun, the iphone/ipad dock but it seems quite slow (if you have a lot of images).

                  Voilà

                    I bought this projector to use for a wedding ceremony to project iMovies and photos. It works great though for big games, movies, and gaming off the wall at home. I have it projecting at around 150 inch and it looks amazing even against a light yellow paint. No issues so far.
