A while back, on Facebook, I mentioned that Epson sent me the MovieMate 60 Projector and omg, it’s the most awesome thing ever! PERFECT Father’s Day Gift by the way!! I have to be honest with you though. When I was first asked if I wanted to review it, I thought it would be cool but I had no idea it would be THIS cool! We’ve had so much fun with this unit that I wonder how we went without it. When me and Toby first got it out, we watched Iron Man and played Halo all night outside! It was so awesome!!! It’s the easiest thing ever to setup, in fact, Toby did it all. He had the instructions in hand and only had to look up one thing to make sure he was doing it correctly.
I was shocked at how huge the screen is and we didn’t even get it to the max! I guess we were so excited about how big it was already that it didn’t even occur to us see how much bigger it could get but just so you know, it displays an 80″, widescreen image from just 7.8 feet away, or a 120″ image from just 11.8 feet away. **Insert Tim Allen Grunt** That’s what I’m talkin’ ’bout! The clarity was great and much better than I expected it to be for sure. It plays DVD’s and you can hook up your games on it like we did. We used the HDMI cable for our Xbox360. It was the coolest thing playing Halo while sitting on patio chairs, with the stars a-shining! Iron Man looked great and the sound system in this baby ROCKS! WOOO, I get chills thinking about it all! LOL
This is not the best quality because it was still very light outside but once it got darker, the quality is exceptional. Plus I didn’t have a smooth surface to view it on and when it gets dark, I really don’t need one. It shows up great when the “lights go out”
Soooo, it just occurred to me but HELLLOOO, did someone say Karoke?!?! OMG, you’d be the best host on the block bring this baby out! I don’t know what else to say except that its’ pretty dang awesome and I LOVE it so much! Because we have so many blu-ray movies, I’d love to have one for that but I’m completely happy with this. It’s a must-have and I highly recommend it for a Father’s Day Gift….What a great way to spend time with the family. Can’t you just imagine everyone outside hanging out playing games, watching movies, singing karoke..omg, too much fun! Y’all should check out the Great American Movie Night website. Totally worth the click;)
Do y’all own one? Or have you been around one? I’d love to hear about it!
Thanks Epson for sending this for review…it’s the most awesome thing ever!
