What customers say about "Key Specs"
Optoma HD143X HDMI 3000 ANSI Lumens Projector
  • The contrast levels in the projector are very good and picture is crisp. Higher lumens , excellent contrast ratio.
  • It has a good level of brightness and 24 frame playback, which I like.
  • The image quality is clear and crisp and easily bright enough to be seen with the curtains open.
  • Great build quality and image even without closing blinds.
  • I'm projecting on to a 100 inch screen made by Luxburg and the image quality, brightness and colour reproduction is excellent at full size.
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.

What customers say about "Display"
Optoma HD143X HDMI 3000 ANSI Lumens Projector

  • It also has colour reproduction to rec.709 spec and keystone features which some similarly priced rivals do not.
  • I initially used mine with a dongle and was stunned by the picture quality.
  • Great also on a white bare wall. The definition of the image is stunning.

Optoma HD142X 1080p Home Theater Projector

What customers say about "Features"
Optoma HD143X HDMI 3000 ANSI Lumens Projector
  • The projector is extremely quiet when being used and having light-up buttons on the remote is a great touch!
  • Great picture and sound quality and really easy to use.
  • It is quiet especially in eco mode and setup was as easy as it gets.
  • The 10W speaker fills a 36 square metre bedroom so much so that at night it is set to volume level 1.
  • Full HD and 3D capable and dynamic black technology makes for a enjoyable viewing experience and fantastic image quality.
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.
