Epson dreamio EH-DM30: Please take the DVD player out of this thing
I'm a minimalist by nature and therefore not a huge fan of consumer electronics gadgets that try to pack in too many features at the expense of aesthetics and core function quality.
Epson has created one of these modern day, manufactured Frankenstein's with its newly announced dreamio EH-DM30 projector.
Somehow Epson manages to package a DVD player and a pair of 10 Watt speakers within the projector housing. The DVD player supports JPEG/MP3/WMA/DivX/DivX Ultra files, and the projector itself can output 720p resolution, 3000:1 contrast ratio, and 2500 lumens of brightness. It'll also playback your USB stick-stored movies via its USB slot as well.
It's doubtful we'll see the Epson dreamio EH-DM30 in North America anytime soon, but if you're in Japan you'll be able to buy it October 29 for US$1300.
Epson also announced a variety of other dreamio models today, ranging from the 540p EH-DM3, also with an integrated DVD player, to the 1080p EH-TW4500 with 200000:1 contrast ratio.
