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...

Good value

 

Bought mainly for presentations and more then adequate for the job. Was hoping to show the odd film at home. Its ok for this but not outstanding. Still at the price a good projector.

H183X

 

The product performs well and seems good value for money. However, the CD supplied with it for the manual did not work and Optoma just sent a link to the online manual rather than sending me a working CD.

Ideal for our basic needs

 

Wanted this to show slides for a small charity. We needed a simple and basic machine of good quality at a reasonable price. This was recommended by RS and seems to fit well with the above. We have used it twice so far and the material shown received...

Perfect for the price!!

 

I bought this to enable customers to preview images in my studio. Even though I was pushed to but a different model at a much higher cost, I though I'd stuck to this as it was reduced and closer to budget. After being told it was not very good by the...

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...

This is a fantastic projector at a great price!

 

I don't normally do reviews, but this is an exception as the Optima H183X is an exceptional projector. It is very bright with great colours and the Audio Out is a bonus as the internal speaker is not very loud. I use the Audio Out to power my...

Great projector

 

A great functional home cinema projector - gives great image quality, really easy to get the image lined up and sets up right out of the box. I'm a complete novice when it comes to projectors, but when looking to set up our home cinema, it was...
