To understand my review it is fair to tell you what my previous projector was, an Infocus X1 .
The optoma seems to be lighter in construction, i cant get away from the feeling that its less robust than the infocus ( like a tank). I suppose a good point is that its white so is less intrusive as it hangs from the ceiling.The good point is that the lens has a shorter throw distance,and so if you have small space you can achieve a respectable image size, something that my x1 failed on.The picture quality is very good, to be honest, dont watch normal tv through it, you will be dissapointed, give it a high def signal of 720 or 1080 and you,ll love it. Nice colour reproduction, the tonal qualities good,pretty good blacks, and i havnt noticed a rainbow effect.
My seating is directly below it, and the fan noise can be slightly offputting in its cycling on/off, but this is only really noticable in quiet portions of a film.
i was undecided right up to the last minute about buying, but im glad i did, cheaper than the overpriced infocus 80, and has the dark chip2,which i know isnt the newest but is better than the infocus IN 80's darkchip1.
For the money, yes its a great home cinema projector, and even better as a 1080p. Who needs to go to the local flea pit when youve got this?
