Summary: I purchased this projector few months ago. It's used and its lamp has more than 2000 hours. The projector doesn't have speakers. The remote feels cheap, but works. The projector itself if quite lightweight and good looking. It requires a separate IR transmitter if you wanna use 3D. The project is a little bit noisy but it doesn't get hot.. it stays warm. There are no filters to clean here like in some Epson LCD projectors. 2D Image is very good. great colors.
Summary: I had seen a 720p Optoma projector in action before and decided to get my own. But I never expected anything as good as this 1080p one. The picture quality in full HD is stunning, the contrast is fantastic and you can see great detail in dark scenes which was an issue with the other projectors I have seen. The only downside with the projector is that the room has to be quite dark to see the image clearly.
Summary: Pros: Good 2D, brilliant 3D quality. Very good value for money. 3rd party glasses as good as orignials easily obtainable at reasonable prices. Cons: Reliability issues. The first one I purchased was DOA. The second one I purchased came with a faulty remote which was replaced by the manufacturer free of charge. However in two months of ownership the projector unit itself randomly shut down during normal use on 5 different occasions.
Summary: I mulled long and hard about whether to buy this machine or the Epson. In the end I went for the Optoma. Although I do not have the Epson, I have seen that of a friend. Both provide outstanding results in both 2D and 3D, although the Optoma is significantly smaller and lighter than the Epson machine, which is a beast! I can only comment after looking at a relatively small number of videos, but basically, the results are superb.
Summary: This is a great projector. I have it on the ceiling using a Neet® - HDMI Extender http://www.amazon.co.uk/Neet%C2%AE-Extender-Cat5e-network-cable/dp/B002ECYEYA/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1356265814&sr=1-1 The picture, direct onto a matt white wall is amazing. It works perfectly with Sky HD 3d & the picture is amazing on both 3d & normal high def However, I have purchased a Samsung DBE-5500 Blu Ray 3d but when I try & play 3d movies the DVD reports: 'The Blu-Ray...
Summary: Just bought this great projector. It arrived within 2 days of the order. I bought it for £799 which is a great price, however, at this price it does not come with 3D emitter or glasses which must be bought separately for £125.17, making the total for the 3D experience £924.17. The 2D image is excellent with outstanding colours and excellent picture quality from HD blu-ray - My projector throws a 110 inch widescreen image from about 11 and half feet away from the screen.
Summary: Had this projector a year now and the quality still amazes me, ive used a piece of melamine wood with a 3 inch black velcro type tape for a border and painted the back wall black which improves the contrast even more. Hooked up with the PC and a 3d bluray player turns my small bedroom into a cool little cinema. So glad i took the plunge and dont see myself going back to tv sets costing a fortune.
Summary: We had a spare room which I thought would make a good cinema room. After some research I settled on this and I am delighted with it. Beautiful deep colours and hugely impressive 3D (using Optoma glasses see seperate review) for the clichéd but true 'immersive experience'. Mrs B was sceptical with the idea but now is completely won over. A fantastic bit of kit for the price.
Summary: Really good picture in both 2D and 3D. I use noname DLP-Link 3D glasses with no issues. The fan can be heard in a quiet room, but is not disturbing while watching a movie. Be shure to check the projection throw chart to see what picture size to expect from your desired mounting point, the zoom is limited.
