testpattern, thank you for pointing out the newer model.

To further discuss this the Optoma bulb replacement runs upwards of $400 while the MovieMate's is $150-200. This alone probably puts the MovieMate option above it because the bulbs only last around 2000 hours. This may seem like a lot but that adds up quick. Especially for an avid watcher like myself.

Did you make those shelves yourself? They look terrific!

they're either loaned out, or stuff thats on its way.

(I usually wait til i got about 20-30 new ones before i work them into the shelves alphabetically.. and when i do that, i leave room for any outstanding dvds that are on their way..)

It's a pretty dumb question (See my post about the 4th one down).

Hey Nitro:

Here are several new shots of the Epson MovieMate in action in higher res.

Here's a close-up of the front of the unit, showing the inputs:



Here's the top of the unit, showing the image dials (adjusting the image top/down, left/right and focus) and the DVD controls:



And here's:

What sound options have you experimented with? Have you run speakers directly to the RCA inputs and gotten decent results?

So, you can run an optical cable to your audio system and presto?

I'm more intrigued each time I open this thread?

Hey Mao:

I've only experimented with the subwoofer that's included with the projector so far, and that sounds pretty damn good.

I haven't had a chance to hook up any external audio equipment to this yet, but yes, based on the ouputs, I believe you can just run an optical cable to your audio system.

Why not look at the Infocus72? It is 480p and has component inputs - HDTV looks great on it.

I purchased mine from a well-known internet retailer and only paid $450 after rebate. I see more value in it than a dvd-player/projector combo.

Of course, I have mine mounted, but when I first got an Infocus4805 I used it on the tabletop (for about 1 week).

Just my opinion.

I'm looking for a mounted projector in the near future, but I'm most interested in something that's affordable that I can take anywhere...

I'm thinking "backyard theater" here!

I didn't want to mount a projector on the wall or the ceiling because of space limitations. In other words, I didn't want to permanently set-up a projector in a room (like the living room) that serves other functions as well.

Plus, I wanted to be able to take the projector and screen anywhere - the living room, the playroom, the backyard, etc.

Very good idea.

Project the movie on the side of your neighbor's house.

Hmmm...

That Optoma is $699 at Circuit City and Optoma has an Free screen, Subwoofer and $100 rebate until Monday!

I'm thinking about this one very seriously....

Wow. With the subwoofer AND screen, all for 600 bucks? That's a damn good deal.

about the Optoma .. what does this mean?

Low-odor: The O2airô photocatalysis air-purification technology creates a photocatalytic reaction to eliminate odors.

do these projectors stink up the place?

Had to pick one up and I'll try it out in a bit.

Circuit City had it on the shelf for $599 (though their website says you pay $699 and then get the rebate)...I took the 4 year protection plan (which gets your first bulb replaced as part of the deal!) for $125.

Out the door for $778, with the rebate stuff ($100, screen and subwoofer) will bring this in at $678! (By the way, the CC rebate form says it lasts until 6/30, not 4/30)

Fingers crossed!
