Customer Review

Reviewed in the United States on May 20, 2019
I bought this projector to relive and share the experience of seeing the movie Alita: Battle Angel in 3D with family and friends. Seeing Alita in an IMAX 3D theater was the best movie experience I've ever had, so I wanted to find an affordable way to bring the most spectacular and rewatchable movie I've ever seen home. The Alita: Battle Angel 3D Blu-Ray wasn't released until two months after I bought the projector, so I tried Pacific Rim with the Optoma HD143X projector, a 100" screen, and 3D Pergear DLP glasses, and my family loved it! For my family, it was the first time they saw Pacific Rim, and I don't think that they would have loved it nearly as much if it wasn't for the brilliant 3D video delivered by this projector. I used a Playstation 3 with an HDMI cable to play the 3D Blu-Ray for Pacific Rim, and I learned the hard way that in order for the PS3 to recognize the projector as a 3D device, the projector has to be turned on first and switched to 3D DLP mode before the PS3 is turned on. After finally getting Alita: Battle Angel 3D on Blu-ray, I was enormously impressed at how close the Optoma 3D home theater experience came to my original mind blowing experience in IMAX 3D. Seeing Alita's incredible action and heart on a great 3D home projector was a dream come true, and I plan to show Alita to everyone I can in an outdoor theater setup. I've also connected a laptop to the projector with the HDMI cable, and brightly lit videos look great even in daylight. On the other hand, dark videos and movies look much better in a dark room than in daylight. I was originally concerned about active shutter 3D DLP glasses making the image darker, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that the glasses didn't noticeably change the image quality. I was also found the Pergear 3D DLP glasses to be reasonably priced . I originally wanted to buy a 3D TV, but affordable sets are hard to find since the major manufacturers discontinued them a few years ago. This projector convinced me that it is much more impressive to use 3D DLP projection on a 100" screen than a 3D TV anyway. The portability of using a 3D projector outdoors is also a big advantage over a 3D TV.
