I bought this for my basement home theater. This is my first projector, and it was pretty straight forward to install and set up. I have it mounted in the ceiling, and projecting on a retractable 100" screen. The colors are amazing; the picture looks fantastic. The projector is also easy to use; didn't have any issues with the zoom, focus, or the keystone adjustments.
The one problem, and it's something I've seen commented on by quite a few people, is the over splash. There's a good 3"-4" around the entire screen; it's just dim white light bleeding outside of the projected image. I sure hope Optoma figures out how to fix this, then I'll adjust my star rating to much higher.
I would like to thank you for taking your time in writing this review. We certainly value your feedback. The shadow border around the projected image from the Optoma HD143X is inherent to the architecture of the new DMD chip used. It is not noticeable when used with a projection screen with black frame and does not affect picture quality. These projectors display high-quality HD resolution and will perform as expected. We have forward over your feedback to our product management team to improve our customer experience.
