Capable of displaying 3D content in any of the formats
The Optoma HD25 is a great little projector. Its bright, sparkling HD image is perfect for home theater, and its bargain price of $949 makes it an exceptional value. While the HD25 has some flaws, those flaws are all related to usability, not image quality. The menu system can be complicated at times, and the lack of multiple User modes limits the HD25's calibration potential.
Bright HD Projector For Man Cave
I was torn between the Optoma HD25 and HD25-LV knowing that with higher brightness color fidelity would suffer a bit. In my recreation room I often leave reading lights on in the seating area (away from the screen) and full lights on in the back room, so the higher brightness projector made sense. Also, if I ever decide to view 3D videos or play 3D games a brighter projector helps to offset brightness lost when wearing 3D shutter glasses.
Excellent value for money
Almost inevitably, given its low price, the HD25 isn't perfect. Its minor rainbow effect and running noise issues might be an issue for some people, especially if they have to sit close to their screen and/or the projector. Overall, though, the HD25 remains comfortably talented and well-featured enough to make its £800 price tag look great value.
Accurate color out of the box
The Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 750HD is an interesting proposition. While some users will be quick to write it off as a low-resolution alternative to the entry-level 1080p projectors in the marketplace, it distinguishes itself in several ways. It offers the best color available at its price point, it has full 3D capability, and it has more light output than either of its main competitors. This makes it a force to be reckoned with in the living room.
Excellent data image quality
If you're looking for a portable data projector, and particularly if you've been looking at an LED-based, 500-lumen model as something you don't love but might have to settle for, the Optoma W304M may well be the projector you really want. It's almost as light as 500-lumen models, it's a lot brighter, and it's only a little more expensive.
Amazing, absolutely amazing
Since my price point was anything below $1000, I didn't mind paying a little extra for 1080p. I decided to apply the funds remaining in my projector budget to an Onkyo HT-S7409 5.1-Channel Network Home Theater speaker system with receiver, since in the course of my research I discovered that this projector's speakers leave a lot to be desired. Now that I own the projector and have experienced it first hand, I agree fully with that assessment.
Achieves a large image from such a short distance from the screen
In conclusion, the Epson BrightLink 436Wi is a good choice for those looking for an affordable interactive projector that is easy to use and reliable. MSRP right now is $1490. When you consider how easy it is to get up and running quickly, along with the warranty and peace of mind that Epson provides in its customer service, the 436Wi is going to be a projector to give strong consideration.
Colors are eye catching, vibrant, and nicely saturated
The 436Wi offers more than enough to earn your attention if you're in the market for a 1280x800 interactive short throw projector. In addition to excellent data image quality, better than par video quality, and a suitably bright image, it offers a slew of welcome interactive features, including automatic calibration, the ability to use two pens simultaneously, and the PC-free mode that lets you interact with any image from any source or use the projector as a whiteboard.
A strong product that is sure to inspire generations of projectors to come
As a standard projector, the WD390U is fully-featured and well-made, putting plenty of light onto the screen and making presentations look vibrant and high in contrast. But it's the projector's network features that make it really shine, and it is people searching for a networked projection solution who should really sit up and take notice.
Excellent Picture Quality - Network Setup Complicated
The picture quality is excellent. I like the "short throw" image of this projector. However, even with an experienced, corporate level IT person, the networking is a glitchy, complicated process set up. The projector is set up on our network, hardwired using a LAN cable, with it's own IP address. I can see it and connect to it over the LAN from my desktop computer, which is on the same network. I can control it and project from my desktop.
We purchased these projectors for our church, which was using 2500 lumens, 10 year old projectors. The picture and brightness and amazing and everyone is noticing how clear the images are. Even the folks in the back rows can read everything from the large song lyrics to the small print of author and copyright information. These are great projectors!
Best resolution and light output
I have seen dozens of the BenQ projectors from the SP890 series to this unit. They have a great Lumen output, and the resolution is outstanding for the price. I haven't found a better projector to date that is in the price range with the warranty provided. These are basicly the SP890 but the original SP890s had ballast issues that after several months would start blowing bulbs before they should. The firmware revision to this unit corrected the lockup issues seen on the SP890 as well.
Great projector in every way
Paid less than $500 for this projector and had reservations as to quality for that price. I am very impressed though. I'm using it for home theater purposes and the white housing blends in nicely. It's also very quiet unlike other projectors I've had in the past. The picture quality is awesome for the price. I wish I could afford a 1080p system, but this is great 720.
High definition picture with high brightness
If you are looking for an entry level 3D compatible projector, the Optoma DW312 may be for you. With its high brightness, high definition picture, you will get a decent picture for that special presentation or home theater experience.
