Optoma HD83 review


If you want to get a handle on what makes the Optoma HD83 one of the year's most interesting projectors, all you have to do is take in its price: £2,400. This makes it comfortably more aff ordable than the likes of Panasonic's AT5000 and Sony's...

Good connectivity; plenty of set up options; affordable

Lack of brightness during dark scenes (especially with 3D); missing shadow detail in dark scenes; limited vertical shift

With its aggressive price and specification, is Optoma's HD83 3D projection's new mass-market champion?

Minimal crosstalk with 3D, 3D glasses work very effectively, Bright pictures look excellent

Problems showing shadow detail, Not as much vertical shift as we’d have liked, 3D transmitter cable too short

Optoma HD83


Competitively priced, with bright, vivid pictures, but performance not the best

Solid build and styling; bright, colourful images

Lacks absolute detail; black levels could be better

Some image gripes That said, we do have slight gripes with the image generally. The HD83 struggles to uncover detail in the darkest scenes, while overall detail levels can't match the competition even allowing for the jump in price.
