Optoma HD600X 720p Projector - £368.40 @ Amazon

I've had my eye on a projector and have been looking for the last 3 months. This Optoma has been reduced from £499 to £368 and includes free delivery.

OK, it's not 1080p, but my budget wouldn't stretch that far so I'm happy to pay half the cost and go for 720p. For the money this is hard to beat.

There's an option to make this 3D (using the 3D-XL box which I think is around an additional £250). I may consider this in the future, but not for now.

Here's the tech spec:

HD Ready: Yes - 720P (1280 x 720)
ANSI Contrast: 350:1
Peak Contrast: 3500:1
Audible Noise: 29 dB - Standard mode
Brightness: 1600 Lumens
Connections: HDMI, VGA (Component\PC\SCART), S-video, Composite, 3.5 mm Audio input, 3.5 mm audio output, RS232 (via 3 pin Mini DIN)
Video Compatibility: 1080P60/50/24, 1080i60/50 720P60/50, PAL, NTSC, SECAM
Dimensions (WxDxH): 286 x 192 x 97 mm
Weight: 2.3 Kg
3D Support: 120 Hz frame sequential 3D for resolutions up to 720p, 60 Hz field sequential 3D for resolutions up to 480i
3D Viewing: Requires Optoma DLP Link active shutter glasses (sold separately)
3D Compatibility: The 3D features of the HD600X can only be used with compatible 3D content and do not support 3D TV broadcast systems, including the 3D SKY service in the UK, or 3D Bluray. Support for these applications may be added in future using additional hardware

normally costs about 400, and £387 on scans today only every now and then.

good price, but don't fall for the £499 nonsense.
#2
Brilliant price and a fantastic short throw beamer.Got mine for £378 after 12% quidco from firebox.com.Argos do a 6 foot brilliant white blackout rollerblind for £19.99 which does just as good a job as a dedicated projector screen at a fraction of the price.Once you spoil yourself with one these a film on a Tv is never the same again.

I have an optoma 720p projector, its amazing :)

Why am I thinking of getting a projector even though I have a 40 INCH HD tv and have just ordered a home cinema system...
#9
Yo can't compare a 40" TV to a projector. Nothing beats a 92" cinema screen coming down to get you into that movie mood :)

But would you not need a 1080p projector for that ?
#12
for those thinking 720p on an 80" plus sized screen may look crap, it doesnt, the qaulity is astounding, I still cant believe how good it looks even after two years of owning it!

nope, 720p is just fine, the projector can go up to 1080i if you really want it to

I couldn't find the spec for this Play screen (is it manual pull down, or is it electric remote?), so I went for this 92' projector screen which is electric and has had decent comments for £90

I also bought mine from AV Partsmaster, though all of their prices are without VAT, so its about £390 with postage I paid which was the best deal at the time, and yes this is 720p but the quality is amazing, I can't tell the different between 1080p and its 90" in size! I also have the optoma 3dxl box which is absolutley amazing, I love the 3D!
#17
Cracking unit, got mine last year for the world cup, the jump in quality from 480 to 720p on this is incredible!
#18
bought mine off buy.com's ebay clearance found the free screen voucher [credit card] in the bottom of the box. Wonderful surprise.
#19
I've got a 1080p, but these are half the price and still look great. Just FYI, a replacement lamp for this model is roughly £130... ( http://www.projectorpoint.co.uk/projectorlamps/Optoma_HD600X_Projector_Lamp.html )

how long do the bulbs last in real use anyway?
#21
4000 hours in standard mode and there is a replacement bulb available for £95.Very reasonable compared to other projector lamps.

considering a projector over a TV for a new studio apartment, just seeing how the costs/awesome compare long term.

£95 is incredibly reasonable.

I wouldn't really worry too much about frequent lamp costs - I've had my projector for 6 months now and used only 300 hours and I would consider myself an above average user as I use it for my PS3 as well as my media center. At this rate, it'll last me over 5 years which I reckon it pretty decent.

Sorry I was a quid out.£96 at Projector Planet.

my room is exactly 11 foot wide could some tell me how big of a screen i would get for that width taking into the consideration of the projector sticking out the wall taking up some of that 11ft thanks

I have also contacted Optoma about a free screen, the Play.com deal is with Optoma and the screen is not despatched from Play. Worth a try! will keep you posted.

#32

#33
Came today, with a foreign plug adapter :(

Then when i plugged it in the whole menu is set to arabic !

Now its setup and in english it looks very good. Xbox and skyhd look pretty crisp.

Just noticed its now gone up to £432.70 !
#34
Mine just came too, althought can't install it as the ceiling mount screws required are ridiculously small. 3mm I ask you, what are these people thinking. Just blew an hour and £5 petrol to B&Q only to find they do not stock screws that small. So looks like ebay and wait a couple of days for them to arrive. :(
#35
Did yours come with a uk plug ? I know it's only a kettle lead type plug, just annoyed I've got to go and buy one.
#36
Yes, it was in the hollow section on the side of the box which had an opening on the outside of the box.. The foreign plug was in the main section.
#37
Euro & UK IEC plug included

Also comes with a case ! :)

I paid £368 but emailed Amazon and they are offering me a discrentionary discount of £30! well chuffedd
#38
Mine also came with a Euro and UK plug, so it all comes ready to go!

The free case was also a pleasant surprise!

i got mine with the link i poted quidco has tracked too so ive got mine for £290 :) this is an amazing piece of kit it also displays in 1080p i set my ps3 too 1080p output and the projector played it no issues my mate tried it with his pj and it wouldnt do it ;)

ive not got a screen yet but ive tried it on my newely plasterd living room wall which is painted in a light cream pain and the picture is breath taking.

i watched ghost rider blu ray/casino royale blu ray on it last night and it was brilliant no rainbow effect/excellent blacks (you do need to spend a hour or two setting it up to get the best out of it same goes for your ps3 go into the settings and adjust them to get the best possible pic)/its very quite too much quiter than my mates projector which cost him well over a grand the hd600x isnt as loud as my xbox360 very quite /the colours are excellent and life like.

also video games will blow your mind the screen im getting on my wall is 3meters x 2 meters or there abouts and games such as fifa/motorstorm ..etc give you a sense of depth that a smaller screen cant give you fifa looks like your watching sky sports !! and games such as wipeout give you a sensory overload that will leave you wanting more after the first play..the next thing im gonna buy is the 3dxl add on and a few pairs of glasses in a few weeks time and also i cant believe im saying thisbut i also cant wait for the clocks to change so it goes darker earlier so i can use the projector more .. lol...remember the darker you can get your room the better the picture will be i find i can watch it ok about 8pm if i close the blinds but once it goes about 10pm the picture is amazing my other option is too hve some curtains fitted which i think i will do because we only have blinds which are good but still let street light in sometimes if not closed properly..

so in summary if your after a projector but are worried about splashing out big money or you want to treat you and your family to a cinema experience that will pay for it self in no time then get one of these..dont worry about bulb life as they last for 4000 hours on normal (which is what ive got mine set too ) if you think about it a usual film lasts 2 hours so you can watch 2000 movies !! its also got a bulb monitor option which tells you how many hours its been in use and many people report that bulbs actually last longer than 4000 hours anyway 4000 is just a guide .that means you could watch a movie each night for nearly 5 years thats excellent in my opinion also optoma give you a 5 years colour guarantee too so if your picture does start going bad they will fix it free off charge ...i cant wait until tonight im watching zombieland and terminator salvation bring on the pop corn :)
