Epson upgrades projector line with MovieMate 55

Epson today expanded on their MovieMate line with the MovieMate 55. Glancing over the specs, I can’t say it’s a marked improvement over the last one, but I don’t care; I still want one. So the new one you’re looking at up there not only has a brighter light, but it is also a hundred bucks cheaper. Which makes this sweet combo projector even sweeter. Available in October.

Why look, we have some specs:

• Projecting a 16:9 widescreen 60-inch image from only six feet away or a 120-inch image from just 12 feet away

• Built-in progressive scan standard definition [480p] DVD/CD player

• Great sound quality using two built-in 8 watt 5.1 Dolby Digital DTS® speakers

• Compatible with Nintendo Wii, Microsoft Xbox 360, Sony PS3, and Apple iPod

• Integrates a new, brighter E-TORL lamp with up to 1,200 lumens to project light more efficiently, maximizing brightness and uniformity across the entire screen throughout the lamp’s life
