Optoma HD37


The Optoma HD37 home entertainment projector shows occasional rainbow artifacts, but makes up for it with excellent color and some features you wouldn't expect for the price.

Full 1080p in 2D and 3D. Two MHL HDMI connectors. Image quality is suitable for home theater use. Short lag time in testing.

Shows rainbow artifacts, primarily in black and white film clips.

Optoma HD37 DLP 3D Projector Review


Projectors have taken a very different road. Every year it seems they get brighter, smaller and less expensive.

Plenty of light output ; Sharp image thanks to DLP technology and good optics ; Reasonably accurate without calibration ; Calibrates to a high standard ; Decent contrast ; Good 3D with zero crosstalk ; Lens shift ; Excellent value

THE OPTOMA HD37 DLP is a Best Value 3D Projector.
