Optoma H183X

 

For £300, the H183X is an ultra-affordable HD Ready projector, with its eyes firmly set on taking up residence in the living rooms of sports fans across Britain with the upcoming Euro football tournament and Olympic games. Although it turns out that it...

Easy to set up and offers decent quality.

 

Bought for my "Man cave", easy to set up, quality is impressive, sound is through Sony 5.1 speaker system which sounds awesome in a smallish room.

Too much of a compromise

 

I was super psyched about the prospect of getting a projector. The possibility of such a massive screen in my room which I could watch things normally on my 24” monitor was tantalizing. Even though I'd never owned one before, I felt by the things said...

ease of use , budget price , lack of fan noise

washed out colors , screen always imbalanced , poor sharpness scaling

Great for the money

 

I've owned this projector for two months now and held off leaving a review on purpose until now. Even though this model is just 720p and I am projecting onto a wood chip magnolia wallpaper covered wall for the cost the image quality in eco+ plus mode...
