HD20 is Great Replacement for Workhorse HD30/HD31 projectors.
2 weeks ago
Summary: - Why you bought it? The purchase of the HD20 was to replace an aging HD30/HD31 pair in service since 2005. - What you like most about it? Everything about the HD20 is an improvement over its predecessors. The Picture is definitely sharper AND brighter. The "screen door" effect reveals smaller "screen door pattern" than the HD3x series. And, this machine is quieter. - What you dislike about it?
Great projector, full HD, very bright and clear picture,

Summary: I bought this projector because of the relatively cheap price, and good reviews. So far the experience has been very rewarding - a bright and clear picture, and low noise levels. The picture is a little out of focus in the corners of the screen, but this may be because of my wall.
Summary: This thing is awsome !!! crystal clear !!! you can take any hdtv and shove it up your butt. all my friends are so jealous they paid between 1500 and 3000 for there tvs that are from 47in to 60in and mine is 10ft by 6ft and even looks better than theres. you have to get one its worth every penny.....
Summary: Personal Experience I bought my Optoma HD20 in 2011. Before i bought this projector i computed the distance from screen to ceiling. my screen is 100"" and is located in my living room. I installed first the projector mount holder even before the projector arrived. I put an additional manual adjustment for the mount in the horizontal, vertical, forward, backward and the tilt. So when i installed the projector i did not encountered major problem in the image adjustment.
PLEASE, PLEASE read if you're a first time projector buyer

Summary: ok ladies and gents, now i'm not going to go into full detail on the specs/features on the optoma hd20 because there is a lot of great reviews with people that cover all that in full detail. what i want to focus on is one issue that i see that keep seeing in all these reviews making some people give this product (hd20) a "bad review". first, a little history about myself. i first bought the optoma hd20 in feb. 2010.

Summary: I absolutely love this projector. Initially I was looking for another TV. Once I started looking at TV's I realized that I couldn't get a decent size tv (48" +) under $600 . (My thinking) Once I buy the tv, spend $600 and buy a full motion/tilt wall-mount ($120) I will have spent $750+ and will have a 50" tv. My friend got me thinking about projectors (gave it some thought) and he recommended this one-HD20.
Dollar for dollar I believe this is the best projector.

Summary: After having cheap projectors that only last about a year and a half and had bad pictures I wanted to buy a good one that did not cost too much. The Optima HD 20 projector was rated with the mid range price projectors. What priced with the lower range projectors. I believe this to be a really good project. The picture is fantastic. I have a 60 inch flatscreen HD TV and the picture quality is almost the same. Colors and sharpness are unbelievable on a 120 inch screen.
Summary: This was a very good buy for me. I was looking at lower cost projectors but finally went with this one and I am very happy with it. The image can be modify to fill up the screen if you have 4/3 or 16/9 it can be changed and also they added a feature which automatically adapts the picture to the screen. The zoom is nice and it was great for using on a 150 inches screen at 17ft distance. It fills up the screen with no problem. I recommend this projector.
Summary: I bought this mostly because I didn't want to spend a ton on a 55" Plasma or LED TV. When I realized 1080p projectors were so cheap, I decided to research a bit (a lot) and went with the HD20 as it is considered the best sub-$1,000 projector on the market. I was a little afraid that streaming content might look crappy when blown up so large, but I was wrong. Sooooo wrong. I have the HD20 set up 12' away from a plain white wall.
