Epson MovieMate 85HD - Overall Color & Picture Quality
Overall, Epson has done a nice job for an all-in-one projector. Skin tones turn out to be pretty good, shadow detail too. The blacks - well I'm done beating them to death. If you want a projector for the family, for the kids, or just some portable you can drag around (I do know people - entrepenuer types who buy things like this MovieMate 85HD as a business solution). Actually, they use it occasionally for business, and the rest of the time at home.
Hey, if I can watch 3 hours of movies on the MovieMate, when the last three projectors I've been watching have been the Sharp XV-Z17000 - a $5000 3D 1080p home theater projector, the Epson 8700UB, my favorite projector in its class, and the $12,000 JVC RS60, their flagship, 3D, and quite possibly the best projector in its price range. I'm spoiled. Yet I can watch the MovieMate 85HD in a pinch.
Which means you can too, if it makes the family happy!
Over all, this Epson is just down right acceptable when it comes to picture, if you are considering its design goals and performance.
