Rated 4 out of 5 by 35/70 movieman moviemate 85
i think the moviemate 72 that i have is much better. all you have to do is put the new lamp in the old m/m 72 and let go. the led screen on the m/m 72 is a plus for time of the movie and chapters..also the lens adjustments need to be on the m/m85...you might want to think about these things...this is my 3rd or 4th moviemate and looking for the 85 with all the things that the 72 has....don't omit the good things that the 72 has!!! 35/70 movieman

Rated 5 out of 5 by Eyepoppins The MovieMate
I bought this as a birthday present for my wife who loves sitting on our covered patio. We walked around the corner on her birthday to see a 120 inch screen playing her favorite movie. The MovieMate is the perfect portable indoor/outdoor solution for big screen movies. Speakers are good enough right out of the box. Keep in mind this thing cast a picture nearly equal to the distance it sits from the screen. So if you want a 10 foot diag. pic, place approx. 10 feet back. Its that simple and because the bulb doesnt have to throw the light so far the colors are great. I tried it at 10Am and its was a little washed out but still watchable.

So, I'm just a guy that likes cool things and can't speak to all the technical specs of this device. However, let me tell you my experience.
Out of the box, it was plug/play with brilliant and crisp picture. The speakers are great and the HDMI input is 1-2-3 easy.
But the cool factor is 10/10. My teen daughters were going to their friends houses the night I turned it on to test it out on an off white textured wall. The first impression for all of us was incredible. When my daughters saw it, they asked things like; "Is this ours?" and "This is so cool, what is this?" and they stayed home to watch movies with their mom and dad.
Let me repeat; my teens stayed home to watch movies with us.
If that's not incentive enough, I don't know what is. This unit is 100% awesome from start to finish. The DVD player is great, speakers are great, HDMI input is easy to use......I mean, this is a plug and play device that is 100% everything it is said to be and more. You will NOT be wasting money with this unit. Worth every single penny.

Easy setup. Detailed pictures with DVD. Speakers could be a bit better. This is the perfect outdoor projector for the beginner.

I love my Epson MovieMate85HD. It makes home weekends and daily TV viewing more enjoyable and convenient. When entertaining because it's hooked up to my cable, I can listen to music nonstop without having to worry about changing CD disc. The picture quality and projection is great for my living room. My friends think it is the greatest invention since television. I have no complaints.

This is a great piece of equipment except that it does not have rear projection capability. I needed it for a presentation but was very diasapointed that it could not be used.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Arnie Very Impressed!
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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Nuk 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.
