projectors get less expensive. And every year, there is a projector that pushes the price/performance envelope, trying to give the consumer more for less. The HD65 is such a projector. This sub-$1000 powerhouse cranks out nearly 1200 ANSI lumens while maintaining good ANSI contrast and color balance. It is a perfect choice for watching HDTV programming, using video game consoles, or simply watching a movie with a few lights on. Placement flexibility is sub-par, but the HD65 has one big advantage going for it - it is highly portable. The HD65 lets you take HD theater out of the home and into the homes of your friends and family, allowing your single purchase to bring some entertainment into the lives of those around you.
I wanted a HUGE screen for my home theater but worried that 720p scaled up much past 60" would be soft or fuzzy. My fears were unfounded. This projector produces a beautiful crisp image that totally surpassed my expectations.
I'm using a 106" matt white Da-lite screen, projecting from approximately 13' away. The picture consistently produces the same jaw dropping expression on my guests. I can see detail in the picture that's too small to see on my 47" 1080i TV. I find myself noticing the texture in people's clothing for example, nose hair & so on. Amazing. Having to actually move your head around while watching, like you have to in a movie theater, makes you realize you're in the big leagues now. Wonderful stuff. The projector's handling of input sources is really nice too. It down-samples 1080 to 720 flawlessly. Standard definition, as expected, looks pretty soft blown up full screen but there's an option to project at native resolution so I just watch SD at a smaller size. Blu-ray looks awesome. No surprise there. Even up-scaled DVDs look good. HD content from my DVR & AppleTV is breathtaking.
I'd have rated this 5 out of 5 if it weren't for one small complaint. I see rainbows on occasion usually in high contrast scenes. These are caused by the flickering of the projector's color wheel. Its a common problem with DLP systems. It really doesn't bother me all that much though. I'm getting used to them I guess. None of my guests have said anything so I'm wondering if maybe I'm seeing them because I'm looking for them. Again though they're really not a big deal.
If you're looking for a cost effective way to build a "real home theater" the HD65 is up to the job. Yes there are 1080 projectors out there but at the time of this review they're all well over $1000. Besides I've heard rumors that the HD65 looks as good if not better than some of the cheaper 1080 models. I'm very happy with my purchase. I think you'll feel the same way once you see its picture. Enjoy.
What do I love about this product?
The price was great..How can you beat a high definition projector for around $700 to $800 on ebay? Although it doesn't feature 1080p the quality is still great. I'm actually using this projector through a "HTPC". If you are not familiar with this it is a Home Theater PC; a computer with dvd, running to the projector. By having the resolution at 720p 1280x720 on my computer and then on the projector makes the image quality amazing for both DVD's and online gaming!
Projectors are great because you can get a 120" movie theater for under $1,000. Another great part of the Optoma HD65 is the throw distance. Even if you have a small room, the screen size will still be huge, with the zoom (keeping the quality still). The lamp is the average 2000 hours on all modes. The warranty on this product is also an excellent 2 years.
The Optoma HD65 is a very small and lightweight projector. I actually have it on a small shelf in my room. You can easily bring it to a friend's house or anywhere for some fun movie nights! The brightness and quality is that great that I don't even use an actual screen; instead I have a white wall.
Having gaming, movies, & television at such a huge image with great quality for this price is truly amazing. Other reviews for this product by others are also great.
If you decide to hook this projector up to a computer, don't hesitate to contact me because there is a program called the K-Lite codec pack, which with ffdshow the images will be even more clear and crisp!
From the trusted Optoma, comes this excellent 720p Home Theater masterpiece. It is one of the brightest projectors in it's class, great for big images and moderate ambient light. Features aplenty; This thing is beautiful - even right out of the box with pre-configured settings. Also, it is small and light-weight to boot.
My single complaint is the lack of an Economy mode; although you can achieve the equivalent effect with more than a 50% light reduction (to increase lamp life) by turning off advanced image features.
I researched this true big-screen purchase for weeks with a moderate budget in mind. I wanted an HD projector to project a 200" display for a theater movie experience, as well as video games - and this projector is it! Optoma is praised for offering this little beast at such a reasonable price.
I just bought this projector for watching movieS and playing games.
I wanted a HD projector under 1000$
here's my review:
-Colors are great and accurate. Skin tones looks natural.
-Contrast is very good.
-I'm seeing details in the dark areas.
-Almost silent projector. (fan is very quiet even in Bright mode).
-The image is really bright (1600 lumens)
-Image looks uniform (a bit of noise in the black levels but you can barely see it).
-All the inputs that you need (1 HDMI, 1 Component, 1VGA, 1Svideo, 1,Composite).
(I WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THIS PROJECTOR TO OTHER)
