Epson MovieMate 85HD – A Review of An All-in-One Home Projector

And it actually does a respectable (for what it is) “out of the box” picture. Dynamic and Livingroom modes are slightly different, but are almost identical in brightness. Theater mode is less than half as bright, but has the better picture

Epson MovieMate 85HD Projector - Flesh Tones

In Theatre mode, the skin tones are pretty good, especially for a relatively affordable all-in-one projector, and no calibration. Without the calibration controls of a more serious stand alone projector, you can’t really do much of anything to affect the skin tones, but, as I mentioned above, most folks don’t care. Hey, my wife’s 40″ Sony LCDTV spends all of its life in some Vivid mode, that is definitely more “over the top” and at least as inaccurate at skin tones, than this MovieMate, and I can tell you that that particular tiny 40″ set cost more than the MovieMate 85HD.
