Optoma HD33 3D DLP Video Projector - Product Review

About.com
20 February 2013
  • Conclusion: Setting up and using the HD33 was fairly easy. The input connections are clearly labeled and spaced out, and the remote control is easy to use. However, the HD33 does not offer power zoom or focus controls. With 1,800 maximum lumens output capability, the Optoma HD33 projects a bright image suitable for small, medium, and large size rooms in most homes. The HD33 provides a great 2D and 3D viewing experience, especially for the price.

Optoma HD33 3D DLP Projector Review

BigPictureBigSound
20 July 2012
  • Conclusion: The Optoma HD33 is one of the few full HD 1080p 3D projectors on the market for less than $2,500 - it actually sells for under $1,500. Although the lack of lens shift and lack of extended zoom capabilities restrict its placement, you can work around this if you have the right room and suitable placement options. The HD33 is a solid performer in both 2D and 3D modes presenting a bright and detailed image with full 1080p resolution.
  • Pros: Low price for a huge full HD 1080p 3D image, Good picture quality in 2D and 3D modes, Supports RF and DLP-Link glasses
  • Cons: Inflexible mounting/placement options due to limited zoom range and no lens shift, Not quite as strong a performer in 2D mode as some comparably priced options, Slightly noisy

Optoma HD33 Review

maximum pc
28 May 2012
  • Excerpt: At first glance, Optoma’s DLP-based HD33 struck us as the Charlie Brown of this batch. While it was the first 3D video projector in this price range to reach the market, it delivers only 1,800 ANSI lumens of brightness, its zoom lens is limited to 1.2x, and you must buy the 3D glasses separately. Like the Epson, the HD33 doesn’t have a lens-shift feature, but it is the least-expensive model we looked at, and its image quality is at least as good as the other two.
  • Pros: Great color, good contrast and strong black level; small and lightweight.
  • Cons: No lens shift feature; 3D glasses cost extra.

Optoma HD33 3D DLP Projector

Sound & Vision Magazine
7 February 2012
  • Excerpt: Like it or not, 3D compatibility is becoming nearly ubiquitous in midrange to high-end flat panels and projectors. But what about those who are looking for an entry-level projector with 3D? Are they out of luck? Not according to Optoma, whose HD33 DLP projector sells for less than $1,500, making it one of the least expensive 1080p 3D projectors on the market.

  • Excerpt: Optoma, “The Projector Expert” has sent us their HD33 projector to review.  The HD33 is listed as their mid-level projector which runs a price tag (at the time of this review) of $1,500.00 USD.  The HD33 has some note worthy features that are just simply awesome, such as full 3D capable at 1080P resolution being the main attraction. We took the HD33 for an extended time frame test because of this and really regretted having to return it.

  • Conclusion: After spending countless hours with the Optoma HD33, I believe that this may be the best projector for your dollar that I have reviewed to date. Regardless of whether I was gaming, watching movies, streaming content or playing Hi-Def 3D video, the Optoma HD33 provided a stellar performance.

Optoma HD33 DLP Projector (TPV 107)

AVguide
14 September 2011
  • Excerpt: Optoma seems to have a knack when it comes to designing affordable home theater projectors. Their 2D HD20 model was the first 1080p DLP home theater front projector to break the $1,000 price point barrier, and it delivered a surprisingly good picture.

  • Conclusion: The Optoma HD33 definitely earns its Hot Product award. The breakthrough price is one great reason, although I expect it will see some 3D competition near the price real soon. The thing is, the HD33 does everything reasonably well. It’s not the most feature enabled projector but it does have some bells and whistles not often found on low cost projectors (such as CFI).
  • Pros: Brightest 3D projector we’ve reviewed to date, and the first that has reasonable brightness on an average sized and surfaced screen, With about 1000 lumens in best mode, easily handles large screens for 2D, Good overall color, Skin tones are pretty good, skin tones in darker scenes do have a bit too much red, Respectable shadow detail, Edge Masking and Vertical digital image shift, HDMI 1.4a inputs (2) allows for support for Blu-ray 3D content, Optional 3D glasses use...
  • Cons: Black level performance is definitely entry level, Limited placement flexibility (typical of low cost DLP projectors), Adequate, but not plentiful lumens for 3D, Minor 3D artifacts including crosstalk, Could be quieter (but not bad), Remote control’s backlight is way, way, way, too bright., No control panel (power off/on, only) on the projector – don’t lose that HD33 remote control, Offers Image AI – lamp dimming to enhance black level performance (instead of a dynami...

Optoma HD33 review

homecinemachoice.com
10 March 2012
  • Excerpt: Don’t be surprised if you’re told you’ll have to go on a waiting list to get an Optoma HD33. According to a little birdie in the trade, demand for this model is outstripping supply across Europe – and having now lived with one for a few weeks, I’m not surprised. Typically selling for less than £1,400, they represent ridiculously good value for bigscreen aficionados – particularly when you consider that a year ago you couldn’t get a Full HD 3D PJ for less than £3K.
