    The question here is whether a specialist projector outfit like Optoma has the edge or whether the clout of bigger, more generalist brands makes for a better beamer.

    Your very own big screen 3D cinema for less than a grand? It's possible, but there are caveats…

    Optoma never stops surprising with its low-cost high-definition projectors. The noteworthy HD81 with its 1080p DLP chipset recently wowed bargain hunters, and now it's set a new price point for big-screen HD with the tiny HD65.

    The appeal of this projector is simple: it gives you full HD resolution from DLP technology at a remarkably low price. Indeed, its £2,000 tag equates it with full HD LCD-based projectors - a competitive market that DLP has traditionally struggled to reach.

    Video projectors have been evolving faster than the X-Men in recent years, with each generation boasting a whole new level of resolution. For a decade 576 horizontal lines was plenty, but then along came hi-def with 720 progressive lines.

    You've seen us gushing almost uncontrollably about Sony's value-packed effort. Sadly, we can't do quite the same for this box from Optoma, despite its obvious power. And it's all because of a sheer visual comparison

    For £1,500, the HD27i offers more than you have any right to expect in the high-definition world. Not only is it a DLP model - usually found on the higher branches of the consumer electronics money tree - but it is compatible with 1080p sources

    Couple '1080p projector' with '£5,000' and you've got an exciting proposition. Optoma's new DLP video projector is the first to offer full-on HD at this price point, and it has many other tricks up its sleeve too

    Optoma Themescene HD72i review

    Despite being one of the cheapest HD Ready projectors in town (along with the InFocus IN76), the build quality of the Optoma Themescene doesn't bode well. The finish is flimsy and lightweight, while the zoom and focus rings feel loose and cheap

    The Optoma HD70 represents a breakthrough in the pricing of home projectors; it's an HD-ready, 720p DPL projector for under £700. If you were thinking of getting a home theatre set-up, and thought 480p was all your budget could afford, think again

    This is the projector that home cinema fans in the know have been holding out for - it's the first (relatively) affordable DLP model to use a genuine 1080p chipset.

    Hi-def on a shoestring? We'll take two! Just when we'd thought the projector world had left us to suffer the insult of high-definition at a mere 32 inches, Optoma finally smashes thuggishly through the £1,000 barrier

    Big-screen TVs are all very well, but if you want the true cinematic experience you should plump for a home cinema projector like this one from Optoma.

    The Optoma EP7150 is essentially an upgrade of the EP729 - being the ultraportable model in the company's range. While its weight is now slightly heavier, the 1.2kg chassis is still ultraportable and compact.

    At just £1,500 Optoma's Themescene H72i is not only the cheapest HD Ready DLP projector yet, but also the first DLP model able to directly battle its LCD rivals on their own price ground. But can it emerge from that battle victorious?

    Here is a new projector from the respected house of Optoma, which appears to just about have it all. First it is HD compatible, second it has a rich feature set and finally it is keenly priced. What more could you ask?

    High-definition is upon us. While the TV industry has managed to get its act together and offer displays, the projector world still flounders to match this productivity at the budget end, where units don't cost much more than large CRT displays.

    The Optoma EP716R is essentially an upgrade of the machine firstoffered last year. With an increased brightness of 2200 ANSI lumens, this is an incredibly bright projector, especially considering the price

    The premise behind this unusual product, according to Optoma, is that projectors generally have an image of being too complicated and fussy about setup to appeal to first time users.The DV10 addresses this in various ways...

    Optoma ThemeScene H78 review

    10  

    In the game of projector specification trumps, Optoma's DLP-based H78 is an ace card. A whopping 3,800:1 contrast ratio, a near silent 23dB operation noise and full HD-readiness go a long way to explain the sky-high price tag

    The original ThemeScene H30 was a real budget superstar - and now it's back, revamped and reinvigorated, and bearing an extra 'A' (for Advanced!) on its chest to prove it.

    Other than maybe InFocus with its Screenplay range, it's difficult to think of any affordable projector brand that's managed to stay quite so consistent as Optoma and its ThemeScene marque.
