Excerpt: Optoma is making great strides in the affordable DLP projector arena. The $3495 HD7100 is a 1280x720 DarkChip3 device, with quality optics, four-way lens shift, horizontal and vertical keystone correction, manual zoom and focus, easy-to-navigate menus, and good but not exceptional positioning versatility. The projector supports all varieties of legacy video (NTSC, PAL, and SECAM) plus 480p, 720p, 1080i, even 1080p.
Excerpt: I have been really looking forward to reviewing Optoma’s new, low cost Darkchip3 DLP home theater projector, the HD7100 . Those of you who have previously read my review of Optoma’s H78DC3 , realize that it was one of my favorite all time home theater projectors and the first low cost, Darkchip3 DLP. The HD7100 starts its life selling for less than $3500, putting it a good $1000 below the next least expensive Darkchip3 projector and thousands below most of them.
