Optoma HD33 Review

maximum pc
28 August 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.
  • 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 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...
  • 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

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?

  • Summary: Usually when I review of projector, I have previously seen it and had hands on with it at the annual CES show in Vegas the prior January. When Optoma offered me the chance to review a 1080p home theater projector that I hadn’t seen yet, which also happened to contain full 3D technology, I jumped at...

Review: Optoma HD33

Wired
3 November 2011
  • Excerpt: Extra dimensions don’t come cheap. If you’ve dreamed of a Sam Worthington-shaped avatar running through your living room, you know that 3-D projectors — the few that are available — have price tags in the $3,000-and-up range.
  • Pros: Half the price of most competing 3-D projectors. Superb picture quality, especially in 3-D. 3-D glasses fit comfortably, even over regular glasses.
  • Cons: No 3-D specs included in the box. A bit noisy, especially when switching display modes. Backlit remote is actually too bright to use in a dark room.

Optoma HD33

PC Magazine
12 October 2011
  • Conclusion: The Optoma HD33 delivers gorgeous 2D and 3D HD images, but shows rainbow artifacts often enough so you should approach it cautiously if you see the rainbow effect easily.
  • Pros: Breakthrough price for 1080p 3D. No video converter needed for 3D with Blu-ray players, cable TV boxes, and the equivalent.
  • Cons: Rainbow effect shows just often enough to keep it from being an extraordinary choice.

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.

Optoma ThemeScene HD33

Trusted Reviews
17 March 2012
  • Summary: With a price tag of just £1,249, the ThemeScene HD33 is far and away the cheapest active, full HD projector ever. Surely it can’t also be any good, right?
  • Pros: Startlingly good 3D performance, 3D glasses work very effectively, Unbelievably cheap
  • Cons: Contrast not great with 2D, Minor rainbow effect, No vertical image shift

Optoma HD33 review

Home Cinema Choice
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.
