- 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.

GAH - the one time i truly would buy this and am short on cash - damn it!! :(:(

does anyone have one of these who could give some comment?

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.
#4
:( 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.
#6
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.
#7
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.

Very tempted.. think id like higher lumens over pixels.. is 2k enough for ambient light?

Is this a short throw projector?

Are the blacks black or grey/washed out?

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

Is this a short throw projector?

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/

Your welcome, I nearly went for a poor Chinese led projector like you but decided with an optoma projector 720p, which I bought second hand on ebay for £220 with only 200 hours on the lamp it was a no brainer I thought. There are other things you can do to improve black levels if your room is to light. I use a neutral density filter that are designed for cameras if you measure your lens size when you buy your projector then you will know what size lens to get there only around £6 on ebay.

questions:

1, What size room do you need (ideally)

2, What size screen and how much?

3, does it come with ceiling brackets?

4, will my wife divorce me if I buy it and set it all up while she's out ?
#23
That doesn't sound right. I've got 3m distance to my 106" screen and that's quite optimal. I chose this over Benq as short throw wouldn't work for me. This is really good projector. Much louder than my optoma hd20 used to be. Then again is a lot brighter and 3D is awesome.

Hi I can only go by the specs on the optoma site, it does sound a little less screen size from that distance than what I'm getting with my projector though. All projectors are different as you know :)

1. If screen is 100" or over according to there website you need just over 3m distance between projector and screen.

2. What size screen would you be happy with? Personally I would recommend at least 100" screen for cinema effect :) I bought a blind for £20 and it was big enough for a 120" screen.

3. Nope does not come with ceiling brackets but can be projected from a table or I have mine sitting on the window sill :)

4. I'm sure she will come round just say "think of all the cinema tickets we won't have to buy anymore" :)

That's 180 inches not 180 cm.
Either you have an Imax cinema screen in your lounge or you've got it wrong mate

Needs about 2.5 to 3 metre throw for 180cm !

Are you saying just buy a white window blind?

And I'd guess it has to be set up at a right angle to the screen/window blind (so best not at an angle)

Is this normally around the £650 mark? I mean if this deal ends can I easily pick one up for that price? As I'm wanting a projector but we haven't got the spare room ready yet and won't be for another month or two. This is a lot of money to spend now on something I can't use for some time.

If it were a £100+ saving I would jump at the chance, but £65 isn't a killer for me.

Make sure you select whether your screen measurement is across the diagonal (standard) or just screen width when using the calculator.

A blind? Do you point the projector to the window? Would that even work? Would be awesome if it did.

Great projector. Bought last week for £649 @ projector planet (Best price at the time). You wont get any better for this price. As for screen size-The bigger the better. (Good selection of cheap screens at Crosbay & Bowen-check screen when courier delivers as ive had 2 that were damaged in transit)
