Optoma UHD42 review


Could this be the best projector for gamers?

Excellent black depth ; Great gaming feature ; Strong, bright picture

Image is flat ; No motion processing ; Obvious contrast adjustments

Great features for gamers, but there are more capable projectors for home movie night

Perfect upgrade from HD to 4k gaming


My previous projector was an Optoma HD141X, and before upgrading to this UHD42 (UHD50x in the US), I had tried the BenQ TK810 as a loaner device. Both projectors were a noticeable upgrade from the HD141X in terms of image quality. The BenQ was...
