Stars Under the Stars

Epson Projector

What It Is: Looking for a fun way to gather the family round this summer? Instead of heading to that ice cold movie theatre, why not host a movie party in your backyard? It’s totally possible with the help of this cool projector from Epson. The PowerLite Home Cinema 2040 3D 1080p 3LCD Projector serves up brilliant images and sound thanks to its built-in speakers, huge brightness and contrast abilities, and the ability to project up to 300″ virtually anywhere. It can easily hook up to your gaming system, streaming system or Blu-Ray player so you can have cinema quality showings right in the comfort of your home – indoors or outdoors. Just add home popped popcorn and some comfy seating!

Who It’s For: Your mom and dad, to host the grandkids. Your son or daughter, for their new home. Your tech-obsessed spouse, to at least get them to breathe fresh air while consuming media.

What It Costs: $899

Where It’s At: Buy it here!

    It’s a great idea but I don’t think I would use it enough to justify the cost.

  2. Elizabeth Vlug says:

    Very cool although a bit beyond my budget. Would be really nice for big family get togethers outside on a nice summer evening.

  3. SandyS says:

    This would make for a great community evening under the stars watching flicks at the cottage.

  4. aketch says:

    This would make for fun family and friend gatherings. I’m not sure how often I would use it.

  5. Heather Swanson says:

    very expensive

  6. aclily19 says:

    Cool idea, hopefully it works well in daylight and not just in the evening. It sounds like a great idea in the backyard until the mosquitos come out.

  7. Joan G. says:

    Would be nice for a family that would use it; I would not.

  8. pinksuzanne says:

    This is not something that I would use enough to warrant the cost of this projector.

  9. Aimee says:

    A backyard movie is a great idea. I am a subscriber.

  10. Rosanne Robinson says:

    Wow, our immediate family has over 60 members and growing every year, this projector would enable us all to view movies together! I’m a subscriber and would love to win it.

    Great gift idea! We would definitely use it!

    Bonus Find of the Month: Parrot Entry: I’ve always like the idea of having a projector instead of a big tv & it’s more economical ‘cept when the bulb goes but even then!
