Epson MG-850HD iPod projector

 

Epson delivers a casual projector aimed at the iThing set. But is it as 'cool' as the Apple products it's designed to support?

Pictures are bright enough to watch in ambient light, Docking functionality is well integrated, Speakers are pretty decent

Very low contrast, Lack of resolution very noticeable, No image shift

Epson MG-850HD review

 

The ubiquitous iPod has infiltrated most areas of home cinema but the projector market has always been an Apple-free zone. Until now that is. Epson's MG-850HD is the world's first home cinema projector with a built-in iPod dock, allowing you to watch...

Bright, colourful pictures; convenient iPod playback; easy to set up and use

Blacks could be deeper; HD only 720p; speakers too tinny for music; a bit noisy

Epson MegaPlex MG-850HD review

 

Weighing in at 3.8kg, the piano black MegaPlex is compact and easily portable. It uses 3LCD technology and offers native 720p resolution in screen sizes from 33 to 320 inches diagonally.

If you’re looking to watch the video on your iPad or iPhone on a screen up to 320 inches across, the MegaPlex MG-850HD can accommodate. The direct mirroring of your desktop with audio to the projector over USB is handy, but the speed of the connection...

Epson MG-850HD review

 

Epson's latest entry-level LCD projector has an integrated iPhone and iPad dock, so is intended to live on a coffee table or bookshelf rather than be screwed to the ceiling.

A decent entry-level LCD projector with some clever features, but if you don’t need the dock you can find 1080p at this price

Quick review - Epson MG-850HD projector

 

Additionally, this projector comes with a remote control and carry handle making it easy to move or transport. The recommended retail price of Epson’s MG-850HD is a steep R10 009, which could also afford a 1080p-class projector. You do get a very...

Review: Epson MegaPlex MG-850HD

 

You can connect your iDevice to any projector and make a poor-man's home theater. Or you can hook it to Epson's MegaPlex MG-850HD and enjoy...

Docks Apple devices and plays all the media within. Movies sound great and look even better. Simple controls on both the projector and its onscreen menus. Clever “coffee break” button pauses the video but turns the image white so you can find your way...

iPad use requires a clunky plastic bracket. Remote doesn’t work with apps like Netflix, and only some of its buttons are backlit. Some of the best third-party video apps aren’t compatible

Epson MegaPlex MG-850HD Projector

 

The Epson MegaPlex MG-850HD Projector combines a projector, an iPhone dock, and a good audio and speaker system into one unit equally good at projecting movies and business presentations.

Very good data and video image quality. Docks with and projects from your Apple mobile device.

A little too heavy to be easily portable. Could use a VGA connector to use with computers that lack an HDMI port.

Epson MegaPlex MG-850HD

 

The patterned black MG-850HD measures 4.6 by 13.4 by 11.5 inches (HWD). At 8.6 pounds, it's too heavy to have as a frequent traveling companion but light enough to take with you in a pinch. The iThing dock is in back; in front, the lens has focus and...

The Epson MegaPlex MG-850HD is an iPhone-friendly home entertainment projector with data presentation chops; it handled both data and video with aplomb.
