Optoma PT105

 

The Optoma PT105 is a far more capable projector than you might expect from the price.

Designed for casual game playing. Small, light, and highly portable. Reasonably good image quality.

No zoom means the projector needs to be relatively far from the screen, with low volume meaning you need to be near it.

Optoma TX631-3D 3D Ready DLP Projector

 

For it's size I'm very impressed with this projector. The image is strong and clear! I had absolutely no issues setting up the projector, my only wish was that it had a way to disable the "Optoma" splash screen when switching inputs, I would rather the...
