Optoma ThemeScene HD82 review

 

Optoma aims for the projector crown, is its claim of a 'paradigm shift' just a load of marketing twaddle?

Good blacks levels ; Impressive colour performance ; Easy to set up

Some dynamic iris noise ; Some DLP rainbow effect

It's not perfect, but then what is? This Optoma is still a damn fine projector

Optoma ThemeScene HD82 projector

 

Now for some years DLP technology - which is what the HD82 uses - has been considered more cinematic and colourful. LCD projectors have caught up considerably, and to some eyes, crucially, because there's always been one reason why DLP will never...

Smooth pictures, no "rainbow effect", easy set-up, great build quality, high detail

Heavy, too big for occasional use, works best in blackout

While its size makes it unsuitable as an occasional projector, this otherwise carefully thought out and versatile single-chip DLP projector should have wide appeal among home cinema nuts. With impressive smoothness, high detail and the banishing of the...

Optoma HD82 projector

 

At some point in the near future, I will be found sobbing like a baby as a horrified courier tries to ply the Optoma HD82 from my shaking hands. This is a marvellous machine for home cinema enthusiasts and newbies alike. It has a hefty price tag of...

The images were near perfect right from the box, and if any tweeking was needed, it was easy

At 8.4kg, getting it into a ceiling mount is a bit of a mission, so you'll have to call on friends, who will then inevitably want to see it in action and then eat all of your popcorn

The closest you'll come to turning your lounge into a cinema. All you have to do now is trample some popcorn into the floor and you're there. Optoma HD82 is tagged with Optoma HD82, Optoma, HD82 and projector. Select a tag (Optoma HD82, for example) to...

Optoma Themescene HD82 Full HD DLP Projector

 

It seems like it's been a long time since we last tested a mid range DLP projector with most developments in the last 6 months featuring SXRD, DILA or LCD technology. So itÂ's refreshing to finally get our hands on a newly designed and launched DLP...

Optoma HD8200 Single-chip 1080p DLP Projector

 

It seems every year projector prices fall a little more. The $4999 Optoma HD8200 single-chip DLP 1080p projector offers features and image quality that would have cost you over $10,000 just a few years ago. Though it has some stiff competition from JVC...

I really enjoyed my time with the HD8200. Its image quality was quite good and it was a pleasure to calibrate. At a price of $4999, I think it compares very favorably with the competition. As long as you plan your installation around an inverted...

A brilliant home cinema projector that offers visuals to die for. Its US $5000 cost is also quite digestible considering its brilliant 300-inch capabilities.
