Great beginner projector 06/02/2011
This review is from: Optoma HD66 1280 x 720 DLP 3D Ready Home Theater Projector 2500 ANSI Lumens 4000:1
This thing is BRIGHT! You can use it in shadowed daylight so long as you're watching a cartoon or brightly lit movie (avoid noir). With adjustable colors, you can even project onto blue or purple walls and tweak the RGB values to get it close to projecting on white. The price was right, its small and portable, and we're very happy with it.
There is no Left/Right keystone... gotta have the projector centered and perpendicular to the wall, making seating a bit awkward.
Also, the focus seems to change as the projector remains on. Its only noticeable if you're looking at text (like in Windows). If you focus it and watch a movie, it will be mildly unfocused by the end.
Finally, in terms of video redraw, there's a bit of the rainbow effect when your eyes dart around the screen. And it might be our Toshiba laptop's video card, but there is noticeable jerkiness during huge cinematic pans and tilts.
Hey, despite my critiques, this is a fine projector. We've watched a ton of movies and will watch a ton more. It was a step down from my BenQ W500, but it was cheap and we love it. By the time it burns out projector technology will be crazy cheap, and then I'll be happy to upgrade.
