I am using it for backyard movies on a sixteen by nine foot white PVC screen, and it is awesome. Blows everybody away when they come over for backyard movie night. I was worried about rainbow effect. And now I almost wonder if it's a myth! I've asked literally everyone who has watched our set-up, and out of 50+ people (and counting), young and old, not one person has reported seeing rainbows. I'm using a 'flexiwhite' screen made from a white PVC material which makes a spectacular picture with bright clear color and deep dark blacks. No complaint whatsoever on color or contrast. We do, admittedly, mostly watch kids stuff--so lots of animated movies--but in all content, we've got no complaints and have used only 'out of the box' picture settings. We start the show right around sunset and it does absolutely fine with dusk/twilight lighting and normal suburban background lighting of cars and neighbors' houses, porch lights, etc.
I know how many hours of research I did before buying, and this review probably won't stop your obsessive research either, but please know you can buy this projector with COMPLETE CONFIDENCE and you will be delighted!
These will only be my initial thoughts since I have just received and installed the projector. An attached video provides a look at the unit.
(*PLEASE NOTE: the video is shot on a cell phone, and then down-converted to 720p, so the quality especially of the videos displayed isn't anywhere close to the real thing. Sorry, I should have done it differently. In the video there is clear rainbow effects (as a result of the camera) and nothing is as sharp or clear or even as focused as the thing in real life, mostly as a result of converting the video for upload)
- The image quality is superb and color calibration is so close to right where you want it, right out of the box
- The price of this projector puts it at the bottom end of a home theater projector, but don't mistake this for some LED projector or just a cheap option, at 1080p this will give you a bright, clear, crisp picture.
- Very light and simple to set-up
- back-lit remote
- USB power is a must have for chromecast, amazon fire, or other usb peripherals
- The IR receiver doesn't seem to be as good as my previous Acer projector
- Only 2 HDMI and no other inputs
- no horizontal keystone
- On normal or bright settings, it runs hot and rather loud (I am at high altitude)
- It seems to struggle with recovering from input loss if I switch inputs (on an HDMI switcher). This leaves it searching for an signal, and sometimes even causing minor image distortion.
The video is a little long for what it is, but there are a few shots of video showing what the unit is capable of so hopefully that will be useful for people looking at this unit. This is my second projector, the first was an Acer 720 projector which is no longer produced. It was a very nice projector that still works perfect. Upon installation however, there is an immediately noticeable improvement in image quality and brilliance. That may be because this is a 1080 projector, and also is a brand new bulb, but in either case I can't image people being disappointed in the quality of this unit.
As mentioned there were a few things I didn't like about this projector. It only has 2 inputs, both HDMI, where as my Acer has 2 HDMI, plus multiple VGA, component inputs and even S-video. I have an HDMI switcher with 4 signals that runs a single HDMI to the projector however so it won't truly effect my set-up. However, this brings me to my second issue, when switching inputs between computer/roku/xbox the projector struggles to immediately connect. There are times when it simply doesn't come back and shows a "no signal" and I have to switch back and forth for it to display an image. My Acer never had this issue unless you were changing inputs on the actual projector from HDMI 1 to HDMI 2.
The projector also ran rather hot, and the fans seems to be working overtime even in a cool basement. This was mitigated by switching it to Eco-Mode, which quieted it down a bit, and then adding external fans.
It does have 3D but I almost never used the 3D on my last projector so I am not reviewing that here.
The pre-programmed video settings were pretty good out of the box. I still ended up tweaking it to my own taste but it doesn't need as much adjusting as other projectors I've used. Gaming is very clear, I've played several hours of HALO 5 on here and there is a marked improvement over my last projector, it so much brighter and displays significantly more detail.
Even in Eco-Mode the image looks great when watching tv with all the lights on. (this is a closed basement with no external sunlight coming in) I am very impressed with how good the image is with the lights on and would recommend this even in a room with some ambient light that isn't entirely controlled. I didn't notice any lag, and I don't think I'm susceptible to rainbow affect so I also didn't notice that.
After having such a great experience with Acer I was set to buy another one from them, after 4 years and 2800 hours on my last one, I honestly feel I could have gone another 3-4 years. However, the current Acer model that is 1080 was about $200-$250 more than this Optoma, so I decided to give it a try and am very pleased. I highly recommend this unit.
June 4th 2017 update: I have lowered the rating one star because the light effects and rainbowing is becoming more and more noticeable. On dark scenes, blue and or green light dots can be very prevalent. It's not consistent as throwing up a black screen doesn't always produce this.
July 18th, 2017 update: after extensive use I can say that the image quality issues and light effects are only noticeable when I am connected to a PC, and almost always if I am streaming something at a low quality or the scene is dark. If I watch the Arrow a typically dark show through my PC I will notice blue and green dots everywhere, but if I stream it through Netflix on an Xbox or roku those artifacts don't show up. This could be the computer configuration, different refresh rate or resolution, or even hdmi cable, I'm not sure yet. All of that is to say this continues to be an excellent projector with a sharp and clear picture.
I'VE ALWAYS WANTED TO HAVE MY OWN HOME THEATER WHERE I CAN JUST KICK BACK & TRULY ENJOY MOVIES THE WAY THEY WERE MEANT TO BE SEEN. THIS PRODUCT EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS IN EVERY WAY IMAGINABLE. AS A FIRST TIME BUYER, I BELIEVE I NAILED IT ON THE FIRST SHOT!
I PRETTY MUCH TESTED THE PROJECTOR WITH THE DEFAULT SETTINGS. PLACED IT ON A SMALL MEAL TABLE ABOUT 6.5 FEET FROM THE WALL & IT DISPLAYED A 57 INCH ( DIAGONAL ) SCREEN ON MY PLAIN LIGHT COLOR BEDROOM WALL.
FAMILY CAME INTO THE ROOM WHILE I WAS TESTING BLUERAY MOVIES VIA THE PLAYSTATION 4 & THEY HAD TO DO A DOUBLE TAKE ON THE QUALITY OF THE PROJECTION DISPLAYED ON MY WALL. IT LITERALLY RIVALS HIGH END HD 1080 P TELEVISIONS THAT COST THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS.
MY BEDROOM IS ABOUT 8 FT WIDE BY 12 FT LONG & 9.5 FT HIGH. IF I PROJECT FROM THE WIDE POSITION ACROSS TO THE WALL I GET ABOUT A MAX OF 67 INCH DISPLAY. IF I PROJECT LENGTH WISE & PLACE THE PROJECTOR ABOUT 11.5 FT DISTANCE FROM THE WALL I'M ABLE TO FILL A 100" DIAGONAL SCREEN ACROSS THE ROOM.
I THOUGHT IT WAS AMAZING AT 67 INCHES WHEN I FIRST TESTED IT. HOWEVER, WHEN I TRIED IT FROM 11.5 FEET AWAY WITH A BLUERAY DISC MY JAW DROPPED! IT'S LITERALLY LIKE BEING AT A MOVIE THEATER ENJOYING A PRIVATE SCREENING OR SOMETHING. IT'S ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL. THE IMAGE IS SHARP, THE COLORS ARE VIBRANT & THE ENTIRE SETUP JUST DRAWS YOU IN.
ALL THE GAMES I TRIED ON THE PS4 LOOKED FANTASTIC. NO BLURRY DISTORTED DISPLAY OF ANY KIND. CRISP & CLEAR AFTER A QUICK FOCAL ADJUSTMENT. ALL THE GAMES FELT LIKE NEW AGAIN. THEY LOOKED THE WAY THE DEVELOPERS INTENDED THEM TO BE EXPERIENCED. IF YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT GETTING AN ARCADE MACHINE, FORGET IT. GET THIS INSTEAD!
IF YOU HAVE THE SPACE TO PROJECT ANYTHING OVER 55" I WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND GIVING THIS PROJECTOR A SHOT. IF YOU HAVE NEVER WATCHED A HIGH DEFINITION MOVIE OR PLAYED HD VIDEO GAMES ON A DISPLAY AT OR ABOVE 55" AT HOME YOU MUST TRY IT. I'M TELLING YOU, IT'S A MUCH RICHER EXPERIENCE.
WHEN I PURCHASE THE DISPLAY SCREEN I'M SURE IT WILL BE EVEN MORE STUNNING. FOR NOW THE 67" DISPLAY FROM 7 FT AWAY WILL KEEP ME ENTERTAINED IN THE MEANTIME.
I RECENTLY PURCHASED THE OPTOMA VESA 3D EMITTER & TWO PAIRS OF THE OPTOMA RF 3D GLASSES. WORKS FLAWLESS AFTER CHANGING THE 3D OPTION TO UTILIZE VESA TECHNOLOGY WITHIN THE OPTOMA HD142X PROJECTOR MENU. PS4 GAMES LIKE TRINE & ZEN PINBALL ARE EXCELLENT GAMES TO SHOWCASE THE 3D GLASSES. IT LOOKS AMAZING!
ALTHOUGH PS4 HAS ABOUT 15 GAMES WHICH SUPPORT 3D GLASSES YOU CAN EASILY THROW ON A 3D BLUERAY MOVIE OR LOAD UP HD 4K SBS ( SIDE BY SIDE ) VIDEOS FROM THE PS4 YOUTUBE APPLICATION TO GET THE MOST OUT OF YOUR INVESTMENT. YOUTUBE HAS TONS OF FREE 3D SBS DEMOS & MANY CLIPS AVAILABLE FOR FREE. THE PROJECTOR SUPPORTS SIDE BY SIDE, TOP / BOTTOM & AUTO MODE IF YOU USE THE OPTOMA VESA EMITTER WITH THE RF 3D GLASSES.
I HAVEN'T THOROUGHLY TESTED MY COMPUTER YET BUT I'M SURE IT OFFERS ALOT MORE CONTENT THAN THE PS4. WITH ACCESS TO TONS OF VIDEO STREAMING SITES & GAMING SERVICES LIKE STEAM YOU WILL HAVE PLENTY OF CONTENT TO EXPLORE. THE PC HAS A DVI-D VIDEO CARD CONNECTOR SO I USED A DVI TO HDMI CABLE TO CONNECT IT TO THE PROJECTOR BRIEFLY WHICH WORKED FLAWLESS.
I DID NOT MOUNT MY PROJECTOR TO THE CEILING BUT MAY DO SO IN THE FUTURE. FOR NOW I LET IT SIT ON A SMALL PORTABLE MEAL TABLE WHICH ALLOWS ME TO PROJECT THE IMAGE TO MY BEDROOM WALL.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PROJECTOR TO GAMERS & ANYONE INTERESTED IN AN AMAZING HOME THEATER EXPERIENCE. IT'S WORTH IT!
GET A GRAY SCREEN & NOT A WHITE DISPLAY. THE GRAY SCREEN WORKS BETTER IN AMBIENT LIGHT & ABSORBS THE BLACK COLORS NICELY DISPLAYING A MORE DETAILED PICTURE BASED ON MY RESEARCH. HOWEVER, IT'S MOST EFFECTIVE IF YOU HAVE SIDE WINDOWS LEAKING LIGHT IN.
UPDATE: I'M LEARNING AS I GO SO I CAME BACK TO PROVIDE SOME ADDITIONAL INFO.
IF YOU INTEND TO WATCH ALOT OF 3D MOVIES WITH YOUR PROJECTOR YOU MAY WANT TO GO WITH A WHITE SCREEN INSTEAD WITH AT LEAST A 1.2+ GAIN. MAYBE EVEN A 1.4 GAIN TO ENSURE ENOUGH REFLECTIVITY TO HANDLE THE 3D IMAGE. IF YOU ALREADY HAVE A 1.1 PROJECTOR SCREEN ADJUST YOUR PROJECTORS BRIGHTNESS & CONTRAST SETTINGS WHILE YOU ARE WATCHING SOME 3D CONTENT TO IMPROVE THE OUTPUT.
RELECTIVE SCREENS ARE BETTER SUITED FOR A SMALLER VIEWING AUDIENCE WHILE LOWER GAIN 1.1 SCREENS DISTRIBUTE THE LIGHT MORE EVENLY ACROSS THE SCREEN ALLOWING A LARGER AUDIENCE TO GET A SIMILAR VIEWING EXPERIENCE FROM A WIDER SEATING ANGEL. ( A GRAY SCREEN MAY NOT BE SUITABLE FOR 3D MOVIE WATCHING DUE TO IT'S LOWER SCREEN GAIN )
IF YOU ARE GOING TO GET A SCREEN MAKE SURE IT'S TENSIONED BASED IN ORDER TO AVOID THE LINES & IMPERFECTIONS YOU WILL MOST LIKELY EXPERIENCE WITH THE AVERAGE PROJECTOR DISPLAY SCREENS.
NEVER ENCLOSE THE PROJECTOR WITHIN AN ENTERTAINMENT CENTER, BOOK SHELF OR A POORLY OXYGENATED AREA WHILE IN OPERATION. YOU WANT TO KEEP THE PROJECTOR AS COOL AS POSSIBLE TO AVOID A SHORT LAMP LIFE.
DON'T MOUNT THE PROJECTOR ON THE CEILING AT AN ANGLE! THIS PROJECTOR MUST BE MOUNTED HORIZONTALLY OR YOU MAY CAUSE DAMAGE & VOID THE WARRANTY.
SETTING THE PROJECTOR TO ECO MODE SLIGHTLY REDUCES THE BRIGHTNESS BUT HAS NO REAL IMPACT ON OVERALL EXPERIENCE. IT WILL HELP EXTEND THE LAMPS LIFE SPAN.
TO TURN OFF THE PROJECTOR WITH THE REMOTE YOU MUST TAP THE OFF BUTTON TWICE FOR IT TO SHUTDOWN THE PROJECTOR AS STATED WITHIN THE PROVIDED INSTRUCTIONS.
