Epson V11H412020 85HD MovieMate, Black – Review:
AN EXCELLENT ALL IN ONE PROJECTOR!
I was hesitant to buy this projector, as there are not many reviews out yet, but its predecessor, the moviemate 72 had wonderful reviews so I gave it a shot. I am very glad I did, this projector does everything I want it to. It will play DVD’s in pretty much any format (including AVI), projects well onto my apartment wall, and the built in speakers are decent, though obviously not spectacular.
The only caveat I have is that there is no lens shift built in, which means the projector needs to be pointing straight at the surface it is projecting on. It does allow you to adjust keystone, which means if you are projecting up or down, it maintains a rectangular image, and has a manual focus and zoom. It is not well suited for use as a home theater projector, as it only has 1 hdmi input, 1 component input, and a VGA input, but I suppose if you are building a home theater you will likely have a stereo receiver regardless, which can handle the cable switching needs.
I am very impressed with the brightness, when on full I can use it during the day(with the blinds closed, though some light does come in), and at night it is easy to shift it to “eco” mode, which is supposed to save bulb life. The main benefit I see or actually hear, is the decrease in fan noise. On high brightness, the noise can be a little distracting, but it is by no means overpowering, and with lower brightness it is hard to hear at all.
The projector is very portable, coming with a built in handle and a carry case, I have already brought it over to a few friends houses with ease.
