HD7100

Trainsam, aboutprojectors.com
3 February 2010
  • Summary: We have had model HD7100 for about 3 years. We really enjoy the picture in our custom built in home theater. However, we are on the second unit, after the first had a mother board failure. Now, the second unit is turning off the bulb with no warning. The bulb is a bit old, near the end of its life.
  • Pros: Excellent picture, rich color, good contrast
  • Cons: Mother board went out after three months. Now on second unit and bulb goes out without warning. Reliability is not good. Loud. Puts out lots of heat.

  • Summary: Personal Experience At first, the projector was great. The picture was pretty sharp and decent colour. After a while the problems started. I would select the bright mode On for when I was watching movies, and select it off when just watching tv.

  • Summary: We love our new Optoma projector! After purchasing a Playstation 3 we were looking to move up from a 720i to a 1080i projector. This projector has the following upgrades from our previous projector - 1080i, quieter fan, no pushing the auto image button when moving from regular to high definition...

  • Summary: Personal Experience Just bought the Optoma hd7100 and so far so good. excellent picture in a dark room on a 92" screen through component video using an older pioneer dvd player. Can't wait to see what it does in HD. Blacks and white are very good, I believe it to be better than 3lcd technology.

  • Summary: Personal Experience The projector gives a good picture and delivers on what it was designed. However, it appears that Optoma may not be providing the service necessary to maintain this projector on the long run.

  • Summary: Personal Experience I have had this projector for a week and the image is incredible. I got it for $1249 with a $200 dollar rebate, final price $1049 for 720P Darkchip3. Great projector if you can't jump up to 1080P.

  • Summary: Personal Experience The HD7100 throws a very sharp picture on my Carada 134" 1.4 gain screen. It even looked good on the wall before I got the screen! I bought the HD7100 because it has a very short throw lens that allows me to get a 134" screen with the projector only 15 feet away.

  • Summary: Personal Experience This projector delivers fantastic colors & color saturation, contrast, black levels, and image sharpness. I can't believe you can get it for under $3,000: I found the images to be vibrant and colors supremely rich.
