Refurbished Optoma HD80 1080p Home Theater Projector
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.
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.
Optoma creates faulty products that fail - stay away.

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.
Summary: This wonderful projector made my home theater complete, with crisp HD capabilities and vibrant colors that comes on par with the best LCD screens! Quiet, energy-efficient and quick on the button! this projector made me a happy videoholic!
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.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: Personal Experience Enjoyed the Superbowl in style. Picture is fantastic! Using 100" Graywolf II screen. Could see that David Tyree's catch hit the ground. Using HD Directv box of course. Problems This pojector has an annoying hum. Looking at the specs it's 32dB. And that's kind of loud.
