Optoma DV10 review


The Optoma DV10 produces images filled with detail, solid black reproduction and is devoid of noise such as visible pixels

If you want to get a 200in tall version of War Of The Worlds in your living room, you can’t get easier, better or more value-packed than this

User-friendly, built-in DVD player, high-throw ratio lens, fast power/cool down

Fan operation is quite audible, native resolution of just 480p

Optoma MovieTime DV10 review: Optoma MovieTime DV10


Optoma MovieTime DV10

All-in-one home theater with built-in DVD player and speakers; relatively compact; fairly deep blacks; solid video processing with 2:3 pull-down.

Setting it up on a coffee table isn't as easy as it should be; so-so color decoding; dual menu system takes some getting used to.

Though a tad pricier than we would have liked, the Optoma MovieTime DV10 does a good job delivering an all-in-one home-theater experience.

Optoma MovieTime DV10


A portable all-in-one DVD player and projector with excellent image quality.

Excellent images ; Integrated DVD ; Optical audio output

Complicated menu system ; Gets hot during operation ; Noisy DVD player ; Cannot display full resolution HD

Also, the device gets very hot after extensive use and the DVD player can run a bit noisy sometimes, especially during quiet sequences in a film. Finally, the built-in speakers were loud enough to fill a small room but deteriorated in quality when the...

Home theater-in-a-projector displays beautiful DVD images and projects Macs, too

Stunning widescreen DVD picture, easy set-up, loud built-in speakers.

No picture-in-picture, no headphone output, USB connector not used for remote mouse operation, only average image quality from external sources.

Subwoofer or 5.1 speaker system with optical audio connection, minijack-to-RCA cable for connecting Mac audio

To make the long story short, this is a great projector if you don't want to delve into the technicalities of installation. Besides, having a 2 in 1 combo is always a nice plus!

MovieTime DV10


Of course performance is the key and we'll look at that in the Projector Performance section

Great image quality for an entry level projector ; True 16:9 Aspect ratio (unlike HP's all-in-one) ; Unique "all-in-one" portability ; Decent built in sound from 2 5 watt speakers ; Optional small subwoofer ; DVD player built in ; A easy to learn...

Image bows slightly in the top center ; Lens shift is extreme - putting the projector either on the floor or just off the floor, for normal viewing height (this also causes the bowing mentioned above) ; Zoom adjust defocuses lens (minor) ; Sound could...

Sound is decent, actually pretty good in small rooms, but I would definitely recommend the small optional subwoofer, which will give your movies that kick that today's special effects call for. Budget tight - start without the sub, and add it later if...
