Refurbished Optoma HD80 1080p Home Theater Projector

terry, Amazon
5 June 2013
  • Summary: I bought this projector as a backup to my new projector which stopped working about a month ago; I just learned from the Optoma dealer that they no longer repair/service models over 7 yrs old. To my surprise, the back-up I just recently purchased projects a better image than the new one I had. I wasn't expecting much out of a used projector, but after hooking it up, I was pleasantly surprised with the crisp image.

Above Standard

  • Summary: My first true love!! I purchased this when I was in Kuwait back in 2009. I was the only guy in the Barracks that had a full HD projector. Never tweaked with the settings until I got home. Stationed in Germany brought the viewing experience to around 70-75 inches. Xbox and Laptop were connected fairly easily. Produced a nice amount of heat, but ventilation was moderate. I was worried about the temperature being a bit drastic, 75-80 degrees Fahrenheit.

Optoma creates faulty products that fail - stay away.

Dominic Ebacher, Amazon

  • Summary: We purchased 60 of these projectors for our company, greater than half of them have had to get sent in to be serviced, and half of those were replaced with units which failed again within months. There is a reason the warranty period is short, and if you value your money I would stay away from Optoma projectors in general.

Best for the $

E. Kasparov "Eric", Amazon

  • Summary: This is a great projector. I've had it for almost 2 years bought it for $1500 a few months after release date. Reliability is great just had it for service and no problems have been found after several years of use. Lamp has had almost 2000 hours but it's still operates properly. Lamps are fairly inexpensive ($160). The only problem is mounting because of it's screen offset, but if you are buying this projector you better read all the specs carefully.

I've had this Projector for 3 years...

Aaron Hepp "AH", Amazon
13 December 2010
  • Summary: I've had this projector for 3 years and it's "OK". I had an Infocus projector for 5 years and I loved it. (I thought the Optoma HD80 was a good deal.) The 1080p is clear and crisp with BluRay or HD. Anything under 1080p is less than standard image quality. I bought the screen from Optoma that is recommended for it. Screen distance is 15' and we sit at 13'.

Optoma HD80 DLP Projector

bullettent, Ebay
3 May 2010
  • Summary: We did a LOT of research on LCD projectors and hit a lot of review sites for professional as well as users insights, but after hours and hours decided that the DLP was a better choice with longer life and less repairs. It was VERY particular where we mounted it on the ceiling, but after that we just turned it on and without any adjustments the picture has been amazing.

Outstanding image, tons of inputs, great price... nothing better...

HDaddict, Amazon
22 January 2009
  • Summary: I've used this projector for one year with a Comcast HD-DVR cable box (outputs in 1080i and 720p), a Playstation 3 / Blu-Ray player, an Onkyo TX-SR606 receiver w 1080p upconversion. My room is 22 x 15 which is a little bigger than you need, but is about the right size if you want the maximum screen size (120 inch diagonal). You need a room that's at least 18 x 12, at the VERY minimum, if you want a 100 inch screen.

  • Summary: Personal Experience Super sharp image on my 126" screen with vivid colours and deep rich blacks. The projector is fantastically quiet and there is nothing in it that I can complain about. An all round excellent purchase.

  • Summary: Personal Experience This is my fifth projector since 2005 and what can I say, this is my best purchase last year 2007. I cannot fault image once calibrated correctly. Just stunning, after owning Toshibas, Infocus, Sony this is the best so far by miles. Problems Throw ratio will not be suitable for all rooms so please check this before you buy.
