Optoma HD65 720p Projector £406.55

Listed at £416.55, use the attached £10 voucher to get it down to £406.55, then with Quidco get an additional £12.20 off. This results in a 720p HD projector for sub 400! The same projector is £499 in PC World. I tried for the 110% price match last night, but the Warrington branch really were not having it.

* Note this is a DLP projector, so read up on Rainbow Effect, but I consider it well worth the gamble. Plus I saw a HD70 hooked up in PC World and that seemed fine. 80-90" Image here we come!

HD65 Features:

Native 720p resolution with DLP® chipset by Texas Instruments
1600 lumens with a 4000:1 contrast ratio (in ImageAI mode)
Latest light and color processing technologies for enhanced picture quality and contrast
Sleek form factor and lightweight at 4 pounds
Extensive connectivity options including HDMI 1.3, component, VGA, composite, s-video, +12v trigger and USB

The ThemeScene® HD65 home cinema projector delivers the kind of picture quality associated with the best digital cinema performance around the world. With a digital HDMI signal you can create a true digital projection system that produces a spectacular High Definition cinematic experience in your own home. A masterly collaboration of HD Ready 720P DLP® technology from Texas Instruments and Optoma Colour Enhancement Technology produces a stunningly bright image with perfectly balanced vivid colour and crystal clarity.

Good deal, has been out of stock for a couple of weeks. Thinking of buying this when I get my 5% cashback amex card through.
#2
Yeah, I was waiting for the new stock for what seems like ages. And then it appeared yesterday finally. I believe they were waiting for the GIMME5 voucher to end, as PCWorld have had stock throughout.

A further 5% via a card on top of it all would be very nice! Good luck.

Originally I was going to go for a HD720x with free 80" screen (just dropped to 479.99 at BT Shop - which is Dabs with free delivery). That is like a black re-jigged HD70 with less warranty, it even says HD70 on the bottom. But in all my hanging around this new model came out.

I'm really looking forward to the HD65's arrival. I hope it was worth all the time and research on AVForums.

All projectors are cold on hotukdeals, I can only assume people have not seen the image quality that these new HD ones produce.
#3
A good deal is a good deal...hot vote from me....like the amex card idea though, buying a new pc early part of the year and that would come in handy!
#4
I couldn't be bothered waiting for the Amex card to come so i've ordered it today. Hopefully quidco will track. Also bought an Optoma 80" 16:9 pull up screen from Empire Direct for £100.
#5
Well worth it, an upgrade to the HD70 at a very low price.

It was about to purchase when Dixons went out of stock, but will pull the trigger this time.
#6
Showing as out of stock again this morning.
#7
sorry if i sound thick,am new to this .but what is an AMEX card and quidco? and how do i get them.would like to get one of these hd65s as cheap as poss.thanks
#8
AMEX is American Express I believe. Platinum Money Back Credit Card.

Quidco: [url]www.quidco.com[/url]

I would say Quidco is definitely worth registering with if you buy much online, but think of it more as a bonus on top of a deal. There will be some big threads on it elsewhere on the site.

Unfortunately the HD65 is currently sold out at Dixons... but they seem to keep getting new stock in every now and then. If you want it sooner, it could be worth trying a price match with PC World, you may get lucky like some of the people on the AV Forums.
#9
Back in stock!
#10
they are back in stock .i used quidco and ordered one,but i think its 2% on the projectors,so that will be about £8 not £12.20.regards for the tip,the voucher code is now qc10 as well by way
#11
#12
This really is a great deal considering what other PJ's are available. Not sure about what screen is best.
#13
I went for the following pull up screen (16:9) 80" made by Optoma

http://www.empiredirect.co.uk/content/products/details/index~modelcode~OPA-DP9080MWL~dept~ctv~subdept~PROJECTION~brand~optoma.htm

These are great if you don't fancy having a perminant setup, quick to assemble, light and easy to store. Big though!

still/back in stock

I bought this projector from dixons on 31/12 for £456 and it is excellent. I have a 100" screen projecting straight onto a white wall and it looks great.

My 4yr old has never seen Scooby Doo look so big.

Excellent find.
#17
I bought this last year but ended up selling it on. I couldn't stand the rainbow effect, I would advise getting a demo of a DLP projector before buying.
#18
Bought this one back in Dec with my egg card for approx. £358. Have been very happy with it. Excellent PJ.
#19
Got one of these from Dixons for 440-ish just before Christmas. Just before I cottoned on to this site, quidco, egg card discount etc in fact, otherwise I could've got it a bit cheaper.

Can't recommend it highly enough - great piece of kit.
#20
Available from Littlewoods.com for approx £450.00 (using xx234 code for 20% off) with screen (advertised as 84" but ships with 92"). Use quidco for another £30.00 or so off
#21
Oh, Lazyzone beat me to it!
#22
Bought one of these in October time I don't see the rainbow effect so I'm happy, but its worth getting a demo if you can, our local PC World had one on display they demo'd. It looks stunning particularly with an HD source (especially good on blu ray with support for 24p etc). My picture is about 75" living room at the moment, but I should fill my 92" screen when I've finished converting the garage... I paid £404 delivered for this projector from Dixons when it was a deal of the day (then got topcashback + 5% from Amex to reduce the cost).

Bulbs are reasonably priced to replace ~£100 and should last 2000-3000 hours, but there have been some reports of premature failures on this model.
#23
very close to pulling the trigger on this but what about the hd700x? also whats the warranty with the hd65? and has anyone actually received the 92" screen rather than the 84" as advertised?

Could I connect a freeview box to this to watch television?
#26
I got one of these on new years eve from Richer Sounds (Got them to price match Dixons after egg, discount code and TopCashBack) - worked out at just under £400.

Great projector, got a 80" electric screen to go with it as well - love being able to watch films on a big screen in my front room.

Rainbow effect was quite annoying for the first few films I watched, after a few films I stopped noticing it as much (still see it occassionaly). Girlfriend never saw rainbow effect.

Also worth pointing out - "universal" mounts will not fit this projector as its so small.

Sure has , this looks like a great idea for a big screen, do you have to have a dark room to watch properly??

I have blackout curtains which obviously help, however I did watch a film on it on Saturday during the day with the curtains open without any problems. As its such a bright projector it works better in the day time.

Forgot to say, my projector comes down in front of my window (and covers it :D)

No probs -one of the big bonus's is the bulb price, you can pick them up for £90-£100.
#38
You may want to compare product with the Infocus X9, It is £503 pounds near £100 pound more expensive but the quality difference may give it the edge.

Here is a review for x9 for comparison

and a comparison review for the optoma model here

http://www.projectorreviews.com/optoma/hd65/index.php

The Infocus can be brought for this price here
