Sure, you can watch your movies on a laptop with a generous 17″ screen. If you want to go bigger, you can use your 65″ LCD TV. All well and good, but if you want to really supersize your movies, you can go with the Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 600. This 3 LCD projector can project a 25 FOOT image.
As we move into Spring, it is time to spend more time outdoors and doing an outdoor movie night. We decided to test out the Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 600 to see if it could satisfy our movie watching desires.
