  • Summary: Optoma has revamped its HD83 3D projector. But is it really any different?
  • Pros: Runs quietly in low lamp mode, Looks great with bright content, 3D pictures are very good for the money
  • Cons: 2D dark scenes still struggle with shadow detail, Limited vertical image shift, 2D dark scenes look a bit grey

Optoma HD83 review

Home Cinema Choice
5 February 2012
  • Excerpt: If you want to get a handle on what makes the Optoma HD83 one of the year’s most interesting projectors, all you have to do is take in its price: £2,400. This makes it comfortably more aff ordable than the likes of Panasonic’s AT5000 and Sony’s VPL-HW30ES. Naturally, though, ‘affordable’ does not necessarily equate to ‘best’. After all, hitting a budget price generally requires brands to make some hard choices over what specs to reduce and what features to cut.
  • Pros: Good connectivity; plenty of set up options; affordable
  • Cons: Lack of brightness during dark scenes (especially with 3D); missing shadow detail in dark scenes; limited vertical shift

HD 83

16 December 2011
  • Conclusion: Dem 2.500 Euro teuren Optoma HD 83 gelingt eine flexible und lichtstarke DLP-Projektion, die mit hervorragendem ANSI-Kontrast und gut voreingestellten Farben punktet. Im 3D-Kino gefällt die aufladbare Funkbrille sowie die hohe Lichtausbeute. Dafür muss man bei der Konkurrenz deutlich mehr Euro hinblättern, weswegen der HD 83 von uns einen "Preistipp" bekommt. Lediglich in Sachen HD-Vollbildwandlung besteht noch dringender Verbesserungsbedarf.

Optoma HD83

28 November 2011
  • Summary: C'est avec un certain retard que nous rendons ce banc d'essai de l' Optoma HD83, l'actualité de sortie des projecteurs devenant de plus en plus brulante à l'approche des fêtes de fin d'année.  Il s'agit du tout nouveau navire amiral de la gamme home cinéma du constructeur.
  • Pros: L'esthétique de l'appareil, Le mode 3D RF, Les menus hyper complets, Le lens shift, Une calibration aisée
  • Cons: Le bruit, La netteté, Un contraste quasiment similaire au HD33, Une luminosité inférieure à celle du HD33
