Innovation is an ever present facet of the tech scene, but rarely seen on projectors. Epson bucks this trend by releasing the first 3LCD HD-Ready home cinema projector that sports an iPod docking station.Press the panel at the back of the projector...

Spoiler! The coffee cup button does not dispense coffee.The idea behind this class of projectors is that it's intended for temporary big-screen enjoyment. Many of the marketing photos show people using the 850HD outside, for example. If that's what...

Equipped with an iPad, iPhone, and iPod dock that pops out of the back of the housing, Epson's MegaPlex MG-850HD Digital Projector + Speaker Combo ($800) is very different from most of the video projector and speaker systems targeted specifically at...

When it comes to giving presentations, teaching classes, or even watching videos or photos in a group environment, there's still nothing to replace the traditional PC projector. Sure, there are little pico-projectors out now, but they lack the sheer...

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...

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...

Armed with one of Apple’s video-out adapters, you can connect your iDevice to any projector and cobble together a poor-man’s home theater. Or you can connect your iDevice to Epson’s MegaPlex MG-850HD and enjoy an awesome-man’s home theater.This 720p...

It's easy to forget that the market for home cinema projectors is insignificant compared to the market for data projectors and Epson are the king of that particular world. In terms of sales Epson are quite simply the biggest projector manufacturer on the...

Epson’s $820 MegaPlex MG-850HD home entertainment projector is making a convincing argument for my post-Christmas gift card cash. It’s such a good little performer for its price that its integrated Apple device dock – an undeniably useful feature...

A 100-inch HD display for $799? That's essentially what the MegaPlex MG-850HD brings to your table, along with the ability to easily watch and listen to entertainment content from your iDevice and other mobile devices. Granted, you don't get a 1080p...

The MegaPlex is as much a lifestyle commitment as it is a brag-worthy cinema setup. You’re not just buying into a projector, but a screen to project onto, a seating arrangement that won’t block the display, and blackout curtains if you plan to watch...

Made for iDevices, but also armed with VGA and HDMI for all-round general use, the MG-850HD is all about convenience rather than quality - but it would be cruel to pick apart a 720p product that's this easy to set-up and operate. Families and...

Smidig dockningFörsta intrycket av Epson MG-850HD är att den är byggd med stil i åtanke. Dockningen skjuts ut från det bakre partiet och I-enheten står stabilt dockad. Sedan väljer du den media du vill spela via projektorns gränssnitt. Allt från...
