Summary: Picture quality is awesome! A major improvement over my old Mitsubishi HC4900 which only had a 1000 Lumens bulb. The Optoma is 2500 Lumens, and is more than bright enough even in low bulb (Eco) mode. I have it set up for 110" diagonal with projector ~12' from the screen & ceiling mounted. We use it to watch TV, movies (BluRay player and PC), and play XBox.
Summary: Picture quality is excellent. One drawback is it produces quite some heat while it is on, even in the econ mode. All in all, it beats most of the large screen TVs in the market in terms of real life experience. It permits one to feel "being there" while watch wild life or scenery pictures. I recommend this projector to anyone who wants sensation and satisfaction in watching movies.
Summary: This is my first projector and i can tell you that its very nice going from a 42inch 720p plasma TV to a 92IN projector screen in 1080p. I would like to point out a few things i learned in my process of seting this guy up. 1. big one would be calabrating color to the correct settings is much tougher than it is on a TV. 2. The Projector can tell what kind of imput is being sent to it and to kick it into what ever resolution it needs to be in.
Summary: Wow. I was looking for a 1080p projector replacement after the bulb in my trusty 7 year old 720 P Optoma HD70 blew out. Could have replaced the bulb for a little over $200 but I thought I might as well put that money towards an upgrade to 1080P. I read all the reviews that talked about the "pop" of the 1080P picture and the brightness of it.
Summary: We're accustomed to DLP image quality having had an InFocus X1 for over 10 years. But it's still remarkable how much of an improvement this is in every category. As others have mentioned, it's super-quiet. Image quality and focus from corner to corner is perfect (at least on our unit). 1080p content is superb. And 3D content is blowing the family away.
Excerpt: This is a great projector. One strife I have right off the bat is the picture displayed of the projector is not actually what it looks like. It looks like the Hd 131xe white projector. Right out of the box it was extremely easy to set up. We've been playing it on eco mode with great color. We do have the projector set up in the room with dark lighting but we have tried it with recessed lighting on with minimal effect.
Summary: This is a really nice projector for the price. The issue I had was I already owned an Optoma HD65 native 720p projector with under 200 hrs. Yet, the itch to try a native 1080p projector was enough to pull the trigger. So how does this projector compare to the HD65? Well, I still have the HD65 and returned the HD131XE. There were several on-line forums that assured me the difference would be huge in favor of the HD131XE.
Summary: This is my 3rd DLP projector, so I have a little experience with them. The performance you get from the Optoma HD131Xe is far beyond the purchase price. Out of the box, this is the first projector that I've been content to run in "Eco" mode, with reduced power & brightness. The amount of pop you get from the image is really stunning. Compared head-to-head with my LED (full matrix, not edge-lit) flat-panel TV, the detail and sharpness advantage still goes to the TV.
Summary: I had been looking for a real 3d hd full 1080p projector for some time and the prices have always been so high. I found this one and did my homework on specs and such and most reviews. sometimes you have to see if for yourself to appreciate anything. I am so happy i purchased this Optima. the hook up was a breeze, and I was watching a movie within minutes. The clarity is brilliant!
