Conclusion: The Epson MovieMate 60 Projector brings the big screen home to everyone. It’s an inexpensive projector that offers a ton of features, it’s a product that is family oriented and if you’re family is like mine then they’ll love it.
Pros: Very bright even in daytime (in house), Low price considering what it is and what it does, Good sound from the little speakers, Great picture quality, Very easy to use and well made, Includes carrying case and remote, Can play everything basically…
Cons: Remote has no backlight, Blacks aren’t exactly black, but it works well, Fan might be considered loud, but it didn’t both me
Conclusion: If you're going to invest in a projector for a fixed installation in the home, it's hard not to go high-def. We'd love to endorse the MovieMate 60 as a starter unit. However, we are on the fence with the $700 price tag.
Pros: DVD player and speakers inside, Quick & easy setup process, Perfect for portable applications, Surprisingly bold colors
Cons: Not quite high-def, Jaggies & detail tests were slightly sad, Speakers lack any real bass, Only one HDMI input
Conclusion: My 17 year old thinks the MovieMate 60 is cool. Of course she’s a little jaded, she tells me she doesn’t need a MovieMate, since we have two home theaters, but likes it anyway. With that in mind, I am pleased to give the MovieMate 60 our Special Interest Award.
