Best Home Projector, the Optoma Movie Time is great!
6 September 2009
Summary: I love the Optoma DV10 Movie Time projector! I now own 2, one for a backup and to take on the road. I bought my first one in Nov 2006 during the Black Friday sale at Circuit City, and got the free subwoofer and free Optoma screen and they are a perfect combo! I use this as my TV and believe me! watching everyday TV on a 6ft screen is great! Movies come alive, it's like having your own personal theater in your living room!
Summary: It's easy to use and has good projection. I'd buy this again and again. If you want a huge conference center you'd have to add the subwoofer but in a classroom atmosphere the internal speaker is just fine.
Summary: Personal Experience Very nice picture clarity, however you need a very dark room. It says HDTV on the front of the unit and on the box but there isnt an HDMI input or a component input, nor does it play hi def dvd format so the only way to get true digital is thru the on board player, but still, its not Hi Def. Bit of a misleading claim. NOTE: This rebuttal from another user - Projector is certainly hd-compatible using the included rca-to-VGA adaptor.
Summary: I will admit this is my first time buying a projector. However I could not have been more pleased. It was really easy to set up and use. Plugged it in, set it down, put in a CD and focused. I have used it in doors and out doors for movies and games. I am the envy of my neighborhood. It has an optical out for surround sound, so you can plug it into your home audio system or buy a set of 5.1 computer surround sound speakers with optical input.
Summary: A good product, but like most electronic items, it has its pros and cons. Pros: It really does give the effect of watching a movie in a cinema. There is a zoom tab, which I only discovered about a year after buying the product. It is located near the lens, and the clarity of the picture can also be adjusted. The product has an inbuilt dvd player, and can also be connected through wires to a laptop and other devices.
Summary: The Optoma MovieTime DV10 is a home cinema enthusiasts dream. Having its own integrated DVD player and amplifier allows the use to unpack, plug in and project your movies to a white wall or dedicated screen within minutes. Operation of the DV10 is really straight forward - You simply remove the lens cap, turn the power on, select the signal source, focus and position your projection and enjoy. Signal source selection is straight forward.
