Optoma HD29Darbee 1080p 3200 Lumens Darbee 3D DLP Home Theatre Projector : Awesome picture

I got this on black friday for £375 and it is brilliant, esp for that price, but it’s really good anyway, we set it it about 15ft away from the wall upon which we project the films. I recommend you get proper speakers or a soundbar to link to it for better audio. It has all the input/outputs you need for any soundbar – we are using a 10m digital optical cable (£11 from amazon) between the soundbar (15ft away from the projector) and dvd, and hdmi between the dvd and the projector, and for laptop use we have a wireless pairing between our laptop and the soundbar, that works really well most of the time, when the wifi signal is steady.

It’s my second projector 1st was a vivibright gp100 , this cost twice as much if not more , is it worth it imho yes much better detail clarity colour sound fan noise is negible easy set up and plenty of adjustable options, will update when had 6 months use but so far so good.

Excellent picture, looks great. Only issue is the adjusting the screen for size.

3d works well with my laptop (projector will convert h-sbs image to 3d with separate bought 3d glasses).

Great quality but you need a good screen for it, because i tried on the wall and had lower quality. The projector was set up at 4 meters distance from the screen and projected an image of 3 meters (120′) diameter.

Best projector with amazing display .

I will rate it 5 star, good to see that it gives good view during day time as well. In built speakers are also good.

Update- 6 weeks on and i am amazed. For black friday £369 and an amazon firestick with a £2. 29 dlna app i can sit back with a super clear 100” screen and access all my films. Speaker fine but i will buy a new one to match the great picture. You won’t be upset at this price. Bought at £389 and so far loving it. I tried projectors with a cheap £60 one and decided i liked then generaloffering so this was a no brainer for a quiet room and pop up cinemaso far love it, crisp, good sound for built in. Single only quibbleis the usb port is charge or mouse only – can not plug in my hard drive of content – boobit cheesed about that so i will need an amazon firestick and hope i can use dlna to go to network drive. Otherwise we’ll pleased and cheap enough .

  • Great bright image and quiet
  • Great projector for the price but with some RBE
  • Bought Black Friday – very pleased

DLP technology uses millions of mirrors to produce high quality imagery which does not suffer colour degradation over time, as sometimes experienced in other projector technologies.

DLP projectors from Optoma

Optoma projectors combine superior DLP image processing technologies with exceptional

engineering and innovation to deliver stunning crystal clear images with ultimate reliability.

That’s why over 80% of cinemas use DLP projectors.

Feel like a take away?

With a powerful built-in speaker and being lightweight and portable in its carry bag, it is great for impromptu garden cinema nights or to take to friends to watch the footie or for gaming. And because it projects close to the screen/wall, no-one casts shadows across the image.

Fantastic, gives a superb picture when used with blu ray player, chromecast or firestick. Gives your old movies a new lease of life.

I’ve tried so many different cheap led projectors and they are so noisy and poor quality. The optoma dlp and 3d are fantastic.

Very nice and bright quality even at daylight. I recommend it for watching tv and movies thorugh your pc or laptop. No need to spend a single penny more on a very expensive projector. No sign of rainbow effect in my case.

Absolutely amazing projector. It worth every penny i spent on it. Its like having a theatre at home.

Packaging was done very nicely. Sadly i had to return it due to some heating issues.

Swapped this one from my previous hd20, which kept breaking the colour wheel, even though this is not classified as a short throw, its definitely better. Ideal picture size, doesn’t get as hot either.

Works with amazon stick direct into hdmi or laptop into hdmi 2. Great quality, husband now watching cricket in big screen during relatively nice day without curtains. Use with bose soundtouch aux connection as no bluetooth sound out, but its ok. Update:just bought a bluetooth transmitter and now have a bose soundbar with bluetooth reception, so we have ourselves a quality home cinema. Still really pleased with quality, sound and we have approx 3m diag viewing on a white wall.

Optoma HD29Darbee 1080p 3200 Lumens Darbee 3D DLP Home Theatre Projector, White

I am very satisfied with the hd142x. Daytime use is good but once you turn off the lights, bam. You wouldn’t want to go back to your tv. Fan noise is tolerable but it drowns out with good speakers (even a sound bar).

Very happy with this projector (my third in 15 years).

Great projector, getting a well lit 91 inch diagonal screen from about 10-11 feet away. Really really quiet, which is exactly what i wanted being as in my setup the projector is close to my head. Full bright mode the fan is quiet. Eco mode, which to me doesn’t seem much dimmer, is really quiet. I’ll dock a star for the ‘rainbow effect’ – seems i’m one of those persons who can see it but is not overly bothered by it. To be honest, for me it only happens when i shift my eyes during dark/light contrast scenes in films. I have a feeling if i’d not read about it, i’d probably not no. Games i don’t notice it as i’ve got something else to concentrate on. Gaming games performance seems to be where this one really shines imo. It’s worth mentioning that the 3d capability using cheapo 15 pound for a pair dlp link glasses is fantastic – great capability for the price.

This product does everything i wanted. Clear display as good as watching a television even in daylight.

You will not be dissapointed.

5m from a wall and got a great crisp 70inch image, ultra clear both day and night, dark blacks and deep colours too. Loads of easy to use features and a surprisingly quiet fan.

Very quiet in eco mode and great image quality.

Awesome projector for the money, wouldn’t hesitate buying this one.

Review for the hd142x – this is a top notch projector. I’ve tried a hd cheap which i returned because of fan noise and decided to buy this optoma unit and i have no regrets spending that bit extra. The picture quality is excellent and there very little to no fan noise when using eco mode. I close the curtains and even with a light in the room the picture is still good. It projects to a wall from a 2metre distance and i get 106′ diagonal.

While this projector wasn’t exactly cheap, i was a bit nervous regarding quality as it was listed among projectors twice the price. I’ve had projectors that cost around gbp 70-90 before and felt i required an image quality upgrade but was not quite prepared to pay upwards of 500. This projector entirely fit the bill. The image quality is fantastic. I place mine on a shelf that is about 3/3. 5 metres from my empty wall and get a large and sharp projection. Although it works better when the room is in total darkness (of course), the image is sharp enough and the contrast is good enough that i can watch with my curtains open during daylight as well. Only removed one star from “easy to use” feature because it did not come with a cable, i had to go out hunting for one myself.

Been using it every day for a few months and it’s amazing im so happy.

Easy set up, fantastic picture. We use ours for amazon tv, apple tv, sky and blu-rays at aprx 5m throw. Even on lower res/non hd the picture is great. Set up takes no time really, a few tweaks and it’s ready. I’ve connected it to a sonos playbar using a hdmiaudio converter (hdmi in, hdmi and optical out) and there is no lag or issue to report.

Picture quality is quite good. It would probably be better if i invested in projector screen. I had this projector for around 2 years now (around 900 hours of lamp life used). Few things to remember before you buy (look it up): no lens shift, runs a bit loud after a while. Great for watching movies, tv and gaming and does not cost an arm and leg.

Although it is a bit loud and the speaker sounds bad it compensates with the awesome hd picture full with vivid colors.

I’m running it off my ps4 in a light room in daylight in eco mode and it is working well. Darbee adds extra detail especially when gaming.

Great product as advertised.

. My boys are playing xbox on it and it’s bloody awesome.
