Summary: Personal Experience I've owned this projector for a few weeks shy of 3 years. For me, it's a daily use projector as video for my home theater system. I don't have the A/V experience that some others might have on this site but I can say I'm very satisfied with this projector. The brightness is good using the economy mode and I have 1976 hours on the bulb which I'm going to continue to run until it quits.
Summary: Personal Experience This Compact little unit is brighter and has a sharper picture than anything I have seen in its class. As A Professional A/V Tech in the Las Vegas Trade Show Industry I deal with all of the Name Brands. The EP728 has the most Vivid Color Reproduction of any of the Portables out there even to this Date. An Excellent projector choice for small home thatre setups.
Summary: For those of you considering a DLP project this is a very nice one. Replacement lamps are available at a much lower cost that most DLP projector. And despite what people will tell you this is HD at 1027x768, HD is 720, and there are no television shows broadcast in 1080p.
Summary: The Optoma EP728 is an exceptional projector for the budget minded and will meet the need of most business and home applications. While this projector will not provide true 1080 HD (due to scaling to it's native resolution) the picture quality is excellent and provides a bright, beautiful image in 720 HD. The difference would be slightly visible closer on a smaller surface, but it's nearly imperceptible at a distance on larger screens.
Summary: I was looking for a video projector for under $1000 that would have most of the features I was looking for (HD, adequate lumens,etc) and I found it at JR in this Optoma. It is a holiday gift for my daughter and her fiance who don't watch TV but love movies. They set it up on Christmas day and give it very high marks!
Pros: Doesn't break the bank, Easy To Setup, Easy to use, Great picture quality, Reliable Performance, Small Footprint
Optoma EP728I. Buena ocasión de tener un proyector
16 November 2009
Excerpt: Buenas noches. Ahora voy a escribir sobre el ultimo aparato que me he comprado, un proyector para ver las pelis a lo grande en una pantalla. Con un presupuesto austero como es normal en estos tiempos de crisis estaba esperando la ocasión propicia de encontrar uno barato, y parece que he tenido suerte y paciencia, este Optoma del año pasado ahora lo puedes comprar por tan solo 300 euros online.
Excerpt: hola compañeros. Aquí les voy a dejar una nueva opinión sobre este maravilloso proyector. Pienso que como tantos otro productos de Optoma, es de muy buena calidad. Tiene un diseño bonito, sencillo y practico. Se ven vídeos con el mejor color y la mejor nitidez. Tiene múltiples conexiones tanteo digital como analógica. va incluido un mando a distancia, fácil de usar y con bastantes funciones. La lampara dura hasta 4000 horas, se enciende y se apaga rápidamente.
