Worked great for three years and then the DMD chip crapped the bed

Derdington, Amazon
5 March 2014
  • Summary: After three years almost to the day, little white dots started showing up randomly and got progressively worse. Googled a bit and found out this model was shipped with a defective DMD chip. I called Optoma in California and their customer service was completely awesome and they had extended the warranty on the chips. I sent my projector in and two weeks later it was back on my ceiling playing Martha Stewart re-runs and Albanian torture porn. Optoma customer Service!!!!

HD66 is a lemon

Melanie, Amazon
31 January 2014
  • Summary: This projector broke (with dead pixels) after less than two years of use. Optoma was kind enough to fix it for a one time only warranty because the warranty has expired! This was on Oct/Nov 2012. I was ecstatic. Last month, this same projector made a vibrating noise that you would think it is ready to explode. After researching the internet, it could probably be the color wheel.

DLP is not for me

JPX7777, Amazon

  • Summary: I did some research and decided to purchase this projector. I found out that I am very sensitive to the rainbow effect of DLP and I had to return it. I ended up with an Epson 3LCD model and that turned out to be perfect. I'm not a videophile or very picky, it was just very distracting. I would suggest watching a DLP projector before you purchase one.

Great projector at an unbeatable price.

  • Summary: I bought this projector for an apartment living room, and it looks absolutely stunning. It's a great price for great performance. The very first movie I watched on it was Pacific Rim, and I was blown away by how much better it looked than anything I've used before and how bright it was, even with a light on in the room. Fully satisfied with this product.

Well worth the money.

A. T. Armstrong, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this Optoma HD66 projector on January 27, 2012 and it has been a great projector. I have just recently replaced the lamp as i have over 5200 hours on this projector and it is doing great! I am projecting on a 24 foot diagonal screen and this projector has no problems, being the little power house it is. I would recommend this to anyone as a first projector who wants all the perks.

First projector died in 30 days

K. Baker "Hippie Gen X (SoCal Yuppie)", Amazon
11 April 2013
  • Summary: The only reason this projector doesn't get 5 stars is because I had to replace the first projector I bought. I tried working with Optoma directly since the projector was still under warranty when it started acting strange. After about a handfull of uses, vertical lines appeared in the picture. I contacted Optoma's support, and they said I had a defective product. I filled out the claim form, and them requested the address to send the product to.

PAY ATTENTION!!!! DON'T BUY IT!!!!!!!

RogerTP, Amazon
6 February 2013
  • Summary: I've bought the HD66 in 2011, everything was ok, hooked up to PS3 through HDMI, and a Xbox 360. A few dead pixels started to spread, in 2012, checked everywhere, people had the same issue, but no clear answers from the company. Bad reviews started to pop out allover the Internet. What really happened was a faulty DMD chip and for my surprise the projector was out of warranty. Sent it for repair but the price to fix it was almost the price I've originally paid for it.

dead pixels after 2 years ~ 200 hours of use (but they fixed it)

tim, Amazon
28 December 2012
  • Summary: Original Review: After two years of fairly light use (~ 2 hours / week) pixels started to fail. First 2 then 3 and then a large band on the left side of the picture. Projector is still useable but I suspect more pixels will be joining the party soon. If Optoma has not fixed the design / manufacturing defect they need to pull the device off the market. Follow up: I contacted Optoma and they provided me an RMA for repair.
