What customers say about "Key Specs"
Optoma HD142X 1080p Home Theater Projector
  • I bought this unit because it offered outstanding viewing qualities - high brightness resolution, high video and graphic's resolution, good pricing and portability.
  • The vast array of options and features make this one of the best, if not, the best budget home theatre projector with a full 1080p native resolution.
  • Excellent color reproduction , mamboing contrast , do very well in dark scenes.
  • One of the reasons I went with this model was because of the higher brightness rating. I have it in my living room which has blinds over the windows, but theres still a decent amount of ambient light in the room in the middle of the afternoon.
  • Rainbows are everywhere in high contrast scenes like credits on black background, my older DLP has none compared to this one.
Optoma HD141X Full HD 3D 1080p Projector
  • On it's brightest setting, it really does manage to work in sunlight quite well, though I'd say to use blinds/curtains if you can to keep that contrast ratio nice and dark.
  • The brightness starts low on switch on but within a minute or two it is super bright on Eco mode.
  • It was extremely easy to set up and provides a bright, crystal clear picture.
  • Even in daylight it's visible enough but i don't recommend it for daylight viewing although when it's dark enough it's the best choice,
  • You can see it in daylight indoors, the colours great.

What customers say about "Display"
Optoma HD142X 1080p Home Theater Projector
  • I have it at a fairly good distance and its projecting a huge crip and color rich picture. Setup was super easy.
  • It does have 60 frames per second and also a great picture for gaming or watching movies and shows
  • I had been looking for a projector for awhile. The picture looks great on my 100" 16:9 screen. I'm glad I purchased it.
  • Image in bright even scenes in uneven, but not that noticeable on other scenes.
  • Not enough zoom for bedroom use. Image size does not gets to THX recommended 40 degrees viewing angle.
Optoma HD141X Full HD 3D 1080p Projector
  • I've been able to scale it up to 100 inches. At this size, it's still incredibly bright and vivid and makes movies an utter joy.
  • The picture size (throw) is pretty good too. We project it onto a wall with a chimney stack and it exceeds the width from about 3 metres back
  • The picture quality is excellent for the cost, and it’s quite easy to setup.
  • Would highly recommend, Very sharp 1080p image, great for movie nights.
  • Ceiling mounted, paired with a 100" manual drop down screen, it's the home cinema I've always wanted at an incredible price.

What customers say about "Features"
Optoma HD142X 1080p Home Theater Projector
  • longer lamp life of 8000 hour compared to about 5000 average on others
  • I especially like that the projector has a USB port so that I can power my Amazon Fire stick directly from the projector.
  • Decent speaker on it can be used occasionally but would need better speaker if watching movies
  • The internal speaker is not the greatest. Voice sound clear and loud but anything else is bad, external speaker strongly recommended.
  • Also the speaker is not great & I think the could've threw in some type of stand or mount but maybe I'm asking for too much now.
Optoma HD141X Full HD 3D 1080p Projector
  • I absolutely love it. There's a ton of features on it to change in terms of audio and video, has 3d capability, can be used in a relatively short room and is just an easy thing to use.
  • I've lost track of how many hours, but it has to be over the hours it's claimed to go before a new bulb.
  • Never used 3D, but for HD, it's perfect. Don't even need a screen. White painted wall - perfect.
  • Amazing 2D and 3D, couldn't be happier. Very quiet too, totally acceptable for projectors, and I've owned a few.
  • I am using it for gaming and it looks beautiful. ps3 gaming, laptop gaming all looks good.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Optoma HD142X 1080p Home Theater Projector
  • USB power is a must have for chromecast, amazon fire, or other usb peripherals
  • It has a USB port to power up firestick
  • Only 2 HDMI and no other inputs
  • Only 2 HDMI ports and 2 audio ports. I wish they had included a few more ports.
Optoma HD141X Full HD 3D 1080p Projector
  • Initially hooked up to a PC using a hdmi cable and worked a treat. Now it has a chromecast plugged straight into it so that we can feed various sources.
  • Inputs and outputs offer a good selection. Due to the number of devices i have i think I'll need to invest in an AV receiver rather than swapping the HDMI out of the back of the TV each time.
  • We have it mounted on the ceiling projecting on to a 90 inch screen, connecting to a Denon AV Receiver with Pioneer 5.1 speakers. 3D works well too.
  • Connecting this to the laptop via one of the HDMI connections was a doddle. Simply attach the cable, and you're almost there.
  • Connected directly with TV, PS4, Xbox, Firestick TV, laptop and its just amazing.
