This is going to be a glowing review. I was most impressed when I first saw the MovieMate 72 at CEDIA. Finally, an all-in-one projector that had the potential to perform comparably to the lower cost (HD 720p resolution) stand alone home theater projectors.
Sure enough, the Epson MovieMate 72 is a definite cut above any of the other all-in-one projectors I’ve reviewed. This Epson offers picture quality that is, at least comparable with many of the stand alone home theater projectors that compete with it in terms of price. The one exception is in contrast and black levels. Still, the MovieMate 72 is impressive for movie watching, and black levels, are less critical for watching TV, and notably, sports.
One of the things I like best about the MovieMate 72, is its versatility. Lens shift, zoom lens, of course, but also the ability to input HD sources, and a host of great features (and benefits) in terms of functionality as an all-in-one projector. For example it can be used as a CD (or iPod, etc.) music player without cutting into lamp life. More in the general performance section on many of the cool features of the MovieMate 72.
