Optoma HD8200 Single-chip 1080p DLP Projector


It seems every year projector prices fall a little more. The $4999 Optoma HD8200 single-chip DLP 1080p projector offers features and image quality that would have cost you over $10,000 just a few years ago. Though it has some stiff competition from JVC...

I really enjoyed my time with the HD8200. Its image quality was quite good and it was a pleasure to calibrate. At a price of $4999, I think it compares very favorably with the competition. As long as you plan your installation around an inverted...

A brilliant home cinema projector that offers visuals to die for. Its US $5000 cost is also quite digestible considering its brilliant 300-inch capabilities.

Optoma ThemeScene HD82 review


Optoma aims for the projector crown, is its claim of a 'paradigm shift' just a load of marketing twaddle?

Good blacks levels ; Impressive colour performance ; Easy to set up

Some dynamic iris noise ; Some DLP rainbow effect

It's not perfect, but then what is? This Optoma is still a damn fine projector

Optoma HD82 projector


At some point in the near future, I will be found sobbing like a baby as a horrified courier tries to ply the Optoma HD82 from my shaking hands. This is a marvellous machine for home cinema enthusiasts and newbies alike. It has a hefty price tag of...

The images were near perfect right from the box, and if any tweeking was needed, it was easy

At 8.4kg, getting it into a ceiling mount is a bit of a mission, so you'll have to call on friends, who will then inevitably want to see it in action and then eat all of your popcorn

The closest you'll come to turning your lounge into a cinema. All you have to do now is trample some popcorn into the floor and you're there. Optoma HD82 is tagged with Optoma HD82, Optoma, HD82 and projector. Select a tag (Optoma HD82, for example) to...

Optoma Themescene HD82 Full HD DLP Projector


It seems like it's been a long time since we last tested a mid range DLP projector with most developments in the last 6 months featuring SXRD, DILA or LCD technology. So itÂ's refreshing to finally get our hands on a newly designed and launched DLP...
