Shame its not 3D
Any body knows about a cheap 3d hd projector ?
Had a cheap 1024x768 Optoma projector and even that was great for SD video, so 1080p should be great. Good price imho!
I have the Optoma HD200X ,I am quite pleased with the quality of the fabulous picture, especially with HD material but gaming is best on my plasma.
Setup was a doddle out of the box settings were excellent and I only had to tweak the sharpness and colour to get an image that was both crisp and natural looking.
The projector is very light and small in comparison to other 1080p projectors and lends itself to be taken to your mate’s house for a showing. Noise level hardly noticeable but limited lens (none) adjustments for angled projection meant I had to rearrange the room furniture to get the size of picture I wanted.
Out of ten I would rate the product an 8 for performance and a 10 for awesomeness and value.
Hope you find this helpful.
Voted hot
How do you use this in a normal sized living room; goes it come with a projection screen or can you just project on to a flat wall? Also does the machine itself accept a bluray disk or do you attach a player? Many thanks
Have the HD200X also, fantastic bit of kit
not short throw
The throw is a little restrictive on this model, check if it will suit using the throw calculator first:

find an hd200(x) from ebay - you can buy refurbished direct from optoma with 12mths warranty
also this is black. white projectors look better on the ceiling (if its white!)

Any link? Can't find any from Optoma direct.
Avoid optoma projectors as they only come with 1 years warranty. My optoma HD20 boke down 6 months outside warranty and lumination and picture quality is poor. I now have the epson tw3200 which comes with 3years warranty including lamps and its like the royal royce, trust me....never go back to optoma. you have been warned
