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.
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.
There's plenty to love about the HD25: it's an easygoing and pleasant watch with plenty of features for its affordable $1300. Yes, it could do with a touch more insight, but itâ??s an enjoyable projector nonetheless.
Superb 3D with no crosstalk, highly accurate colours with very little rainbow effect
The Optoma HD25 is good value for your money. Only problem is, the BenQ W1070 is a similar device with just slightly better quality (the image is more finely tuned and it has more connectivity). The HD25 falls just short of five stars.
Capable of accurate and contrast-rich pictures
Despite these issues, and while the HD25 might lack the instant appeal to casual users of its close BenQ rival, the Optoma's enhanced contrast and colour accuracy, together with its superior 3D performance, make it a potentially more interesting choice for AV enthusiasts with a sub $1600 budget.
Excellent shadow detail
It's cute, it's got serious performance for the bucks, and is almost unique in its short throw design. The BenQ W1080ST projector should make an excellent choice for those wanting to mount close, or using this projector on table top and for multiple locations. I'm certainly not going to stop you from breaking out your credit card. This W1080ST is a good value!
Color is both accurate and easy to adjust
As one of the only 1080p home video projectors to feature a short throw lens, the BenQ W1080ST is in a class of its own. This $1299 powerhouse combines high light output, strong dynamic range, excellent color, no significant rainbows, and respectable 3D performance to create a powerful image that's sure to please. With an onboard speaker and a razor-sharp short-throw lens, the W1080ST is a mobile powerhouse, a serious gaming machine, and a portable movie theater all rolled into one.
Crisp and bright picture
Great projector for about a grand. The picture is a whole lot better than my old one and everyone who comes over comments about the improvement in quality. The short throw is nice, but I did not compensate enough for the increase in throw angle. This means I either need to mount it lower from the ceiling or use the digital keystone which causes a noticeable decrease in image quality. Obviously still a great image, but not 1080p crisp.
Very good job displaying 2D high-def images
With its relatively compact size, short throw lens, clearly labeled and spaced inputs, on-unit control buttons, remote control, and comprehensive operating menu the W1080ST is an easy projector to place and set up.
Also, combining the short throw lens and 2,000 maximum lumens output capability, the W1080ST projects both a bright and large image suitable for small, medium, and large size rooms in most homes.
Respectable blacks on dark scenes
In summary, on both Blu-ray disc and HDTV, the color is accurate and the picture easy to watch. It's rather forgiving overall. When it comes to the "wow factor", it should blow away all your friends.
This BenQ W1070 has a great picture for the bucks, and is as solid a value as I think you can find without spending a good deal more, and I'm not just talking a hundred or two. Hey, it's cute too!
Great little projector for entertaining in your home
The BenQ W1070 is a great little home video projector that produces a 2D image that looks more expensive than it is. High light output and great shadow detail help the W1070 stand up to ambient light, while extensive color controls and solid factory calibrations make it easy to just plug and play.
Next Generation of DLP Home Theater Projector - Improved performance, Lower Price and Maintenance
In the past Brilliant Color was more of a liability than a benefit. It is improved with the new chipset used on the W1070. The W1070 is fairly well calibrated out-of-the-box but also includes a full color management system which works rather well.
Good 2D and 3D picture quality
Once we'd managed to work round its setup limitations and figured out how to avoid a couple of initial picture niggles, we were left with pictures from the BenQ W1070 that comfortably surpassed our expectations, making it just the latest entry on a freakishly long list of 2012 projector bargains. People on the hunt for an exceptionally cheap but still movie-loving projector have never had it so good.
Outstanding value, Massive 1080p images
If you're after an easy-to-accommodate Full HD projector, this smart looking DLP model delivers. It packs a bright 2,000 lumens punch, dispensing 1080p images which ping with detail. While the W1070 is Full HD 3D capable, no Active Shutter glasses are supplied in the box, so you'll need to budget extra if you want them.
On the plus side, an onboard mono speaker provides low-fi audio.
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.
I bought the Epson PowerLite 1776w to install in a client boardroom. The device is mounted on the ceiling through a generic ceiling mount (not included), we were up and running in seconds, the connectivity options include VGA, Wifi, HDMI and USB (the lack of Ethernet is a minus). The setup was quick with any of these.
Very sharp image with any resolution and good color accuracy
The Viewsonic PRO8300 does not dazzle with features, but instead targets a specific market quite well. Most high resolution multimedia projectors also come with a fairly high price, well above that of the PRO8300's sub-$1000 street price. While the PRO8300 is 1080p (1920x1080) and the others are WUXGA (1920x1200), that difference in vertical resolution is not going to be visible in most circumstances.
Pictures genuinely watchable in ambient light
If you're thinking about buying a Pro8300 as a cheap movie projector for watching mostly in a darkened room, you should think again. Fast. It's simply not up to the job.
What the Pro8300 does do quite well, though, is serve up sports footage and even at a push animated films with so much brightness and colour richness that you can genuinely enjoy them in daylight conditions. Even if you're just projecting onto a wall or zero-gain screen.
Delivers bright, full-HD resolution images
This full-HD projector excels in well-lit rooms where its powerful brightness can make presentations really pop, be they stills or anything up to 1080p video. All this is assisted by its large selection of inputs, built-in speakers and a handy laser-pointers. However, it fairs considerably worse in colour accuracy in dim home-cinema lighting.
