Optoma H27 review

 

A film projector with an excellent contrast ratio

Excellent movie quality ; Very quiet in use

Not great for computer work ; Hardly inspired pricing ; Long-throw projection ; Excellent contrast ratio

Excellent for film, adequate for use with the Mac, with an obvious price point

Apparently, not all DLPs are built the same. On paper, the H27 seems almost identical to others. But the proof of the pudding is in the eating and we certainly enjoyed gorging on this tasty projector

Optoma - H27

 

With home theatre systems becoming increasingly popular, the DLP projector has moved out of the board-room and into the living room. As an added bonus, they're getting cheaper, with a number of companies now offering entry-level ...

If you are looking at building a home theatre setup on a budget and want to go down the projector route rather than using a large flat screen, then Optoma's H27 should be near the top of your shopping list.

So, we return again to the subject of value. Yes, you will need to mate the H27 with a projection screen. If you spend $1,000 on said screen, we're talking about $2,199 for a wonderful-and wonderfully large-picture. You won't find a better value in the...

Optoma H27

 

It turns out, according to Optoma, that the H31 (already on the market for 9 months as of this writing) has been so successful, that they are continuing to sell it, while bringing in the H27 as well. The H27 offers a number of enhnacements over the...

Out of the box color needs some adjustment - a simple calibration ; Zoom lens has 1.2:1 ratio zoom lens (20% adjustment) which doesn't provide much placement flexibility. To be fair, 20% is pretty typical in the price range ; Minor light leakage out...
