Optoma HD131X Full 3D 1080p Projector £584.00 @ Amazon

Frank30ukFrank30uk

Quality projector that is £600+ from other sites. Some good reviews on this one.

- Full HD and Full 3D - perfect for watching Blu-ray movies without downscaling or compression. Using the inherent speed of DLP technology, the HD131X can display true 3D content form almost any 3D display device, including 3D Blu-ray, PS3, Xbox and Sky3D
- Powerful audio - the integrated 10W speaker negates the need for costly external audio solutions
- Long lamp life - a 6000 hour lamp life significantly lowers costs.

    I luv the idea of 120 inch screen coupled with10 W speakers that negate the need for real audio to accompany that epic picture size.

    :( bought this last week from Costco for £629.

    Awesome projector for the money.

    Heat added.

    My only experience is that we have 2 Optoma projectors at work that are not used a great deal and now they have so many dead pixels they look like they are projecting a snow scene. Please keep in mind that the ones we have at work are now at least 3 years old.

    This has got to be the best projector at this price point. bought mine for 650 only 2 months ago. picture quality is awesome.

    3D is also excellent on this.

    Tempting. I have a mount and screen fitted for a Optoma HD67n, by the looks of it this 1080p 3D one is a larger sized projector. Has anyone else upgraded from a smaller 720p Optoma to a 1080p Optoma projector - with or without issue?

    I'd hope upgrading within the same Optoma family might make for a more seamless transition without having to take down/move my existing mount or screen.

    Are they DLP or LCD?

    I've had several Optoma DLP projectors, and never had a single issue with dead pixels etc.

    I think LCD tend to suffer with it more if I'm not mistaken? This one is DLP...

    I have a 720p optima projector with 2000 Lumens you can see it in daylight but only just, you would need to close all curtains if you really want the picture to be good. Also if you have light coloured walls and in general a light room then I would recommend a grey screen (or blind that's what I use as they only cost £20 for a 120" screen). The advantage of a grey screen is the light doesn't bounce off it so much and reflect on the walls also it makes the blacks darker which will give you better contrast on your screen.

    Welcome to the world of cinema enjoy and I would recommend this projector with 3d and 1080p I would upgrade if I could afford it :(

    Most projectors have the rainbow effect the reason this happens is when you move your eyes around the screen the colours can't keep up with what you have just focused on. My projector has this effect and I can honestly say that I don't notice it now, it's only when your moving your eyes and I guess I've trained mine to stay still lol.

    Hey thanks for the reply, i do understand that it will always perform better in a darker room, the grey screen is something i never considered tho, I currently have a pretty POOR Chinese LED pj, which works OK for the money, but def looking to up my game

    i have been toying with the gt750 but reading the reviews on this, has got me verrrrry tempted! HEAT ADDED FOR PRICE

    No I would say it's about a normal throw projector you need 3 metres distance between the projector and the screen for a 90" Diagonal screen. 6 metres away will give you an 180" Diagonal screen.

    You sure? This site seems to suggest you only need just over 1.5m to get 120cm diagonal.

    The problem is that projector visuals aren't bright enough. Have to switch off lights and that's not always ideal/
