  • Conclusion: Blacks are very good, great for a home entertainment projector.  Give the Optoma an “A”- considering its price.  Handling of dark shadow detail is very good, although not exceptional, really fairly average at the price point, and easily improved upon.  But do remember that it seems easier for projecors with mediocre blacks to do better on dark shadow detail.  All considered, the one/two combination is one of the best in the class.
  • Pros: Serious calibrated brightness of 1500 lumens!  A light canon, designed for less than ideal environments, or very large screens, Decent color, out of the box, very good color post calibration, Skin tones (post calibration) are very good (slight shift to red), Good shadow detail, A top performer in terms of black levels, for the price point, Nicely sharp 1080p image, Offers Edge Masking and Vertical digital image shift, Low lag times – great for gamers, Lamp Life is bet...

  • Conclusion: Almost inevitably, given its low price, the HD25 isn’t perfect. Its minor rainbow effect and running noise issues might be an issue for some people, especially if they have to sit close to their screen and/or the projector. Overall, though, the HD25 remains comfortably talented and well-featured enough to make its £800 price tag look great value.
  • Pros: Excellent value for money, Good picture quality for the price, Living-room friendly design
  • Cons: No vertical image shift, Operational noise can be distracting, Minor rainbow effect

  • Conclusion: Petite taille et petit prix, pour une grande image 2D et 3D qui offre des qualités qu'on ne pouvait espérer atteindre il y a encore quelques mois sur des projecteurs positionnés à moins de 3000€. La mise sur le marché d' une nouvelle puce intégrant le support  direct de la 3D au profit des promoteurs de le technologie de projection sur base DLP contribue ainsi à la démocratisation de la grande image sur trois dimensions à domicile.
  • Pros: La netteté de l'image, Les menus complets et actualisés, Le CMS efficace, Une image 3D sans ghosting, Le choix des lunettes RF pour la 3D, Des haut-parleurs intégrés délivrant un son de bonne facture
  • Cons: Pas de Lens-Shift, Pas d'interpolation d'images, Le bruit de fonctionnement, L'Iris dynamique inutile
