Summary: Essential accessories: Optoma 3D glasses: Optoma ZD201 DLP-Link 3D Glasses High Quality HDMI 3D 1080p HDMI cables: Amazon ASIN: B0036BD0K2 Mounting bracket: Amazon ASIN B003Q58C2E First off! Dont buy the cheaper Sainsonic 3D glasses! They DO NOT WORK properly with this projector. Also get a decent set of high quality HDMI cables otherwise you will get problems when trying to play 3D content at 1080p Full HD! Details above of the ones that I purchased.
Pros: Fantastic Quality, 3D works extremely well! Superb colour rendition.
well worth the money for 120" movie and game playing

Summary: have been waiting for the money to upgrade to a 1080p projector and it was worth the wait, and 3d an added bonus. i wouldnt have gone out my way for 3d add on as i think its abit of a novelty and the glasses arent cheap although there are cheaper versions that work just aswell. the picture and colour on the screen is amazing and although its now connected to a surround system, the internal speaker isnt actually any worse than a regular tv speaker.
Summary: this machine packs a punch after 2 months of reading about projectors i went for this one ,and wow it hits the mark i tried benq1070 but this bats that machine out the park.HD is awesome 3d brill.the first one i got had a wee mark on the lens sent an email asking about it they told me rap it up and send it back,even before i packed it up a new projector arrived.go for it you wont regret it.
Summary: Our first experience of HD and using a projector. Incredibly good value for money and very simple to do the basic set up. Almost "plug-and-play". Tried it first sitting on a coffee table to get an idea of the potential image size and got over 100 inch diagonal!!!! Currently have it upside down on a tall bookcase but have bought a ceiling mount and will fit that permanently once I've found the joists :-) Its worth understanding some of the terminology before going too...
Summary: Only reason it hasn't received 5 stars is because the first machine that was delivered was faulty and had to be returned. Amazon however, were more than helpful with their communication and speed of replacement. Once fired up the rest is history.......awesome machine!.
Summary: I'm writhing this review not just based on this projector. Over the years i had 4 different projectors. Few month ago i was shopping for new projector. And i came across this Optoma HD131X. Specs and review were great. And that's what made me buy one for my self. Delivery was very quick. I like the design. Fan works very quiet. Turns off very fast, in about 10 seconds.
Summary: Sometimes you cannot resist some expensive gaget, but when you get it, you never use it. Sometimes you can resist the siren calls for years because it doesnt make sense until you experience it from someone you know and realise what you are missing. When I first saw an HQ quality projector in 2005, in someone's living room in Germany - it cost the owner 5000 pounds and was also hooked up to an equally expensive sound system in their living room - it was amazing!
