Customer Reviews

I got this projector about a week ago and here's what I can say so far 1.
R. Startzman
I also don't care for the fact that the owner's manual is on cd so it can't be taken along to deal with those inevitable technical difficulties.
JDB
It is extremely easy to set up, very portable, and projects sound far better than you would expect.

I wrote a scathing review of my experience in purchasing this product, at first, when Electronics Expo, the Amazon-vendor, would not accept a return on this product. My decision to return it was based immediately on observing the "screen door" appearance (resolution)compared to another DLP model a friend let me borrow and try. Also, the zoom feature wasn't as good. Having said that, though, the convenience of this design, with the DVD player and sound built in, is a very nice thing, and in the end, I decided to keep it and make use of it for that reason alone. I also got an email and phone number from Electronics Expo trying to make good on the deal. The rep was reachable by phone, and tried to make me happy. I recommended they find a way to say "you may not return this item if you purchase it" show up somewhere on the cart check-out page before you click "complete purchase." So, let the buyer beware.Epson MovieMate 55 Portable 3LCD Home Theater Projector with Built In DVD Player

The Epson Movie Mate is a tremendous product. Instead of purchasing a large screen LCD or plasma television, I opted to go this route. Let's face it - these days, everything is online. Hook your laptop right up to this bad boy and grab your instant play Netflix or check out the latest offerings on Hulu. It's absolutely amazing! The contrast ratio on this puppy is only 1:300 but it's all you need. Consider that a commercial theatre is usually just 1:150 - why would you need 1:1000????

I got this projector about a week ago and here's what I can say so far
1. The Model 55 is very easy to set up. The Quick Start user's guide is very good and it took me about a minute after I got it out of the well-cushioned package to show a movie on DVD.
2. Everything, including the PC and TV inputs, worked flawlessly.
3. The device is very portable with carrying handles built in
4. Controls on the remote are predictable and logical. I spent little time referring to the user's guide.
5. The video quality is quite good and almost up to TV LCD quality
6. Having stereo loudspeakers in the unit works very well and makes the system very portable. Sound quality is reasonably good.
It's too early to tell about reliability, but right now it looks like Epson has a hit on its hands. It's priced right and easy to use.

This unit is being tauted as the next step up from the Moviemate 30 and has a brighter bulb! BIG DEAL. The Moviemate 30 had: Horizontal and Vertical Lens Shift - The 55 does not! This is almost impossible to even line it up on a wall let along the 80 inch screen! The so called 5.1 dts virtual surround sound is PATHETIC compared to the Moviemate 30's 2 10 watt stereo speakers. This unit has 8 watt speakers and arent even Jensen like the older 30s model! The older model also had OPTICAL zoom, this one has DIGITAL! LAst but not least for a slap in the face, the older model had an output for a subwoofer - this DOESNT - just an output for amplifier! ARGH! The only thing they did to this was make it black and add a handle. VERY DISAPOINTED EPSON as I was gonna send this back and get the 72 but will wait for that ones price to drop further. My advice - IF you can find the Epson Moviemate 30s GET THAT ONE!

I purchased this machine for the sole use of using it outside for "drive in" movie nights. So far I've used it for so much more. Yes, we have had one night without rain and were able to use it. We had a backyard of very happy teenagers watching scary movies until the wee hours of the morning. Then, we played Wii on it and just for giggles, I hooked it up to my laptop to see what viewing pleasure could be found on that. AMAZING. This is the EASIEST projector I have ever used. The sound quality is incredible. Picture is terrific and the FUN is absolutely priceless. I also purchased a blow up screen for outdoor use and a pull down screen for inside making it a very versatile item. My entire family is enjoying this projector. I've only had this item for a few weeks, but so far everything about it is perfect! For me, this is best item I have purchased in a very long time.

Great purchase. Worked right out of the box and my husband didn't even need the instructions! we use it for the backyard with an inflatable movie screen and the volume is great - didn't even need to hook up extra speakers. Highly recommend, well worth the money.

I bought this item with the idea of using it for presentations. I don't mind that I have to create slides as jpeg files instead of just creating a PowerPoint. What I do mind is that so far I can't figure out if there is a way to turn off the automatic slide show where it won't auto advance the slides.

I also don't care for the fact that the owner's manual is on cd so it can't be taken along to deal with those inevitable technical difficulties. At $650, and more elsewhere, you would think Epson wouldn't be so cheap on user's manuals!!!

I think with a little tweaking and some good instructions, this product would be a dynamite seller for those who travel and do slide presentations. The fact that you can just take along this device and a thumb drive without having to lug a laptop along is great. However, the slide options need to be enhanced to offer more user friendliness.

I called Epson customer service and was told that no there is no way to turn off the auto slide transition. I would have thought this would be a no-brainer!!

I did figure out that you can hit pause and it will pause the slide show but you have a nice ugly pause symbol on your photo.

Also, sometimes the machine seemed to have a mind of its own and forward without being manually un-paused. Another thing that would have been nice is to be able to go back a slide if you wanted to without having to go to the menu....of course this machine isn't meant to be used for presentations apparently, although if Epson had been smart they would have made it more user friendly for this purpose.
