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.

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.

  • 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.

  • 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. It annoys me at times and is a relief to turn off. So crank the surrounds. I'm now looking at a box to put around it and add fans to box to keep cool.

  • Summary: Personal Experience This was our first cinema-quality projector, and i cannot believe how incredible the result! We have played blu-ray, HD-DVD, Xbox360 and PS3, and all have been absolutely spectacular for thousands less than other brands and models

  • Summary: Personal Experience BRIGHT!! Wow, what a difference compared to my Panny AE-700U. Yes, I can see the rainbow effect if I dart my eyes back and forth when watching material with a white object on a dark background. Yes, the projector is not the quietest out there and there is NO lens shift. However, for the money I would challenge you to find a better projo. I am throwing an image on a 106" diagonal screen with unity gain and am blown away.

An Outstanding Projector

T. Davis, Amazon
10 December 2007
  • Summary: First of all, I'm no audio or videophile. In fact I was initially wary of this new fangled technology (my hi-tech abilities end with tin-can telephones). So, I did my homework. I wanted the best picture possible for under $3000 for a projector. I was willing to run gold-tipped HDMI cables, use an upconverting DVD player capable of 1080p resolution, and get a high-quality screen (white matte with 1.0 gain...I learned this from Consumer Reports), etc.

Best for the $

E. Kasparov "Eric", Amazon
10 December 2007
  • 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.
