Optoma HD27


If you thought you had to budget big for a 1080p gaming and movie projector, think again. As 4K (and faux-4K) models take top billing, regular HD models are getting cheaper, and better, than ever.

The Optoma HD27 proves you don’t need to dig deep for a big-screen experience. Just add a large white wall and some popcorn.

Optoma HD27 Projector review


Compact and colourful, this is a 100-inch+ crowd pleaser

Compact and easy to set-up ; Excellent Full HD performance ; Vibrant colour fidelity ; Suitable for movies and games

Doesn't do a deep black ; Awful onboard audio system ; Limited motion resolution

The Optoma HD27 represents ridiculously good giant-screen value. Compact and colourful, this is a 100-inch+ crowd pleaser.

Optoma HD27 DLP Projector Review


A budget level home entertainment projector from Optoma is not unusual, however this one boasts Rec.709 colour accuracy, so is it home cinema ready?

Excellent colour accuracy to Rec.709 ; Good brightness and motion ; Excellent 3D performance ; Good image sharpness from the lens ; Excellent build quality ; Good video processing and input lag ; Superb value for money

Some obvious rainbow effect with certain material ; Mediocre black levels and shadow detail ; Noisy even in Eco mode ; No 3D glasses or emitter provided

As an all-in-one home entertainment projector for gaming, big screen sports, movies and 3D the HD27 certainly manages to perform the tasks with a nice degree of quality and accuracy. The fact it can meet the Rec.709 colour standard at the price point...

Optoma HD27 1080p DLP Projector Reviewed


Adrienne Maxwell reviews the HD27 from Optoma. This 1080p, 3D-capable single-chip DLP projector has a rated light output of 3,200 lumens and an asking price of just $649.

If you want a big-screen home entertainment setup but have a very limited budget, you'd be hard pressed to find a better choice than Optoma's HD27 DLP projector. For $649 or less, you get a very bright, highly portable 1080p projector with 3D and MHL...
