Summary: I have had my projector since summer 2012 and I LOVE it. It automatically adjusts itself to focus and project straight onto the screen (or other surface) with no prompting on my part. The bulb finally burnt out this summer (2014) and for $80 I bought a new one and had it installed with no problems! The built in speaker is quite robust! it is easily heard at mid-low volume for all of the movies and video games I use with it.
Summary: bought this at another store on sale for $500... I was looking at the Viewsonic PDJ5134, but decided to go with this... This projector is AMAZING!! works great in the dark, but surprisingly well with my blinds open and the living room light on. I'm throwing it about 11' and have an image that is roughly 97" wide, 65" tall and about 103 diagonal. the image quality is great and it is super quiet.
Summary: I bought this projector about a year ago and it is used heavily and by a bunch of different people and to my surprise it still functions as though it were right out of the box. I am very happy with its durability and its performance is excellent so I definitely recommend this product.
Summary: We use this for outside shows in the backyard and also for playing some serious multiplayer games. Works great. I was worried that it was only 720p and not the full 1080, but the picture is sharp. Speakers work fine for 20-30 folks in back yard. We've only had it about one month, but so far we are delighted.
Summary: I've used a lot of projectors in the medical business and not to mention they are all epsons but thats what are recommended by our computer techs. This projector was easy to use but it does work on the ipad retina display but all you need to do is go down to best buy or apple and pickup the adapter and HDMI cable and wal la works beautiful.
Surprisingly beautiful, clear picture and the customer service at Epson is how I wish all service centers were..

Summary: I purchased this for my children for Christmas, trying to balance quality and price. After reading some good reviews on this item, I decided to try it, thinking that for the Xbox and movies for my kids it would be fine. Well, the quality of the picture far exceeded my expectations. It is used mostly for Xbox and viewing sporting events (life size!). We do not use the iPod feature, so I can't comment on that.
Summary: Waited way too long to purchase a projector for home enjoyment. I was always intimidated due to all the seemingly complicated hook ups for projecting movies and high prices of so many units to choose from etc. Once i saw the advertisement that i could just buy the mg-850 for under $1000.00 and attach my ipad2 and watch new hd movies i decided to give it a try. I opened the box everything was there. The installation was very easy.
