MovieMate 85HD 720p 3LCD Projector
I have not had this projector long, so I cannot comment on bulb life. Yet, taking it out of the box, setting it up in my bedroom and popping a DVD in it - WOW!
It is the closest I have been to having a movie theatre in my home, in my bedroom. The picture is vivid and large and makes watching anything better. I plan to carry this around too and use its portability as well. It size will make that easy as well as its handle. It is capable of doing more than I have done with it so far but I am glad to contribute my extremely positive first impression.

Works well. too bad they took out the the ability to raise and lower the picture with the lens. My son has the same model and his has that feature. On a ceiling mount I have to prop the rear of the projector up about 2 inches.

ONE AMAZING PRODUCT!!
THIS IS MY SECOND EPSON MOVIE MATE! WHEN THE PROJECTOR ARRIVED I JUST PLUGGED IT IN, POPPED THE DVD IN AND PLAYED! THIS IS A MUST FOR ANY FAMILY WITH THE VERSATILITY OF GOING ANYWHERE! I PURCHASED A LARGE CANVAS FROM A CRAFT STORE AND NOW WE WATCH MOVIES IN OUR OUTDOOR GAZEBO! I USE THIS FOR HALLOWEEN TOO WITH SCARY HUGE IMAGES PEOPLE SEE OUT THE WINDOW! KUDOS TO EPSON AS ALWAYS!

Great Great Great
We do outside movies for the family and this projector works great. I like the fact that if I want to quickly do a show I can just put the movie right into the projector or if I want a big movie theater setup I can add my dvd or blueray plater along with a surround sound system. I recommend it and think it's great.

This projector is great for movies and gaming. the speakers are loud enough for casual movie watching, the picture is great. It does produce a lot of heat though.

Projector is everything I wanted for agreat price, easy to use and unbelievable picture. I use it outside on a 16' X 9' screen and the quality is great.

Perfect for outdoor use
Picture size (huge)
Ease of use
Cons: Movie is displayed as a Trapezoid
Has a flaw out of the box ( The picture is not squared) The bottom of the projected image is perfectly level; however the top of the picture is not.
The left margin of the movie is shorter than the right and therefore the top margin rises and is mildly distracting.
We have figured out a way to compensate by tilting machine.
Upon inspection of the device, the lens appears to "sit" low.
We have watched only one movie, I have yet to call for service on it.
Its a great machine otherwise and hopefully Epson will address my concern properly

Great Little Box
The MovieMate 85HD is a wonderful machine. Easy to use, excellent design, lightweight and extremely portable. We wanted an outdoor/patio movie theater and the MovieMate delivered, big time. Crystal clear picture with excellent audio. Connect a pair of powered speakers to the headphone output and you'll get a big, rich theater quality result. One of the best electronics purchase I've ever made. Kudos to Epson!!

Perfect for outdoor use
Purchased for outside use. 2500 lumens is high enough to begin watch a movie at 630pm outside. Speakers are perfect for indoor use but felt we needed more volume for outside, picked up Logitech Speaker System Z623 and it is perfect. First few times we used a king sheet tied to two trees...it just was not big enough so we opted to purchase an inflatable screen.
