Highly sharp thanks to Laser technique! Therefore the Optoma UHZ65 is a real threat for Sony and JVC. Thanks to its rich brightness for SDR and HDR sources as well as high contrast values, the Optomas Laser DLP deserves a lot of praise. In addition, the quiet and extremely durable UHZ65 collects many points in practice as well as in our visual test.Read More

The Optoma HD39Darbee is a high-value crowd-pleaser. It’s not always possible to satisfy movie fans and gamers, but this model scores more than it misses. It’s an effective gaming display, does a fine job with films and is bright enough to make your next sporting event a real social occasion.
But away from the microscope and under normal viewing conditions, it delivers more than the sum of its parts. If you like your eye candy particularly sweet, it’s definitely worth having on board.
For those interested in watching the Olympics or upcoming FIFA Cup, this is a darn good projector for sports too.Read More

“Overall, this is a cracking, credible high-end home cinema projector. I suspect once you’ve gone laser, you’ll not want to go back.”
“the picture performance of the UHZ65 is on the right side of gorgeous. The image is tack-sharp. Like its UHD65 stablemate, the projector is built around TI’s XPR (eXpanded Pixel Resolution) DMD.”
“4K content is obviously this PJ’s strength, but image quality with HD sources is good too.”

“Optoma is on a roll with the UHZ65 and has fully exhausted the chassis of the recently launched cheaper UHD projector. Particularly successful is the color and contrast management, so that you get an almost perfect image. Experts will be very happy about the abundant possibilities for fine tuning.”Read More

Picture clarity is outstanding. The projector employs an XPR 0.67” DMD device, which uses hyper-fast switching to create a 4K (8 million pixel) image from 4.15 million mirrors. It’s not exactly native 4K, but it’s as near as dammit. We certainly haven’t seen our Ultra HD Blu-rays look any more noticeably sharper.
Sharper, brighter better – the UHZ65 is the most exciting home theatre projector we’ve seen all year.
The UHZ65 brings dazzling laser clarity to the world of projection.

“The detailed sharpness of the Optoma UHD65 is excellent and exceeds clearly the JVC DLA-X5900.”Read More

Once up and running, gaming on the UHD60 is absolutely stunning. The projection is vibrant, and exceptionally detailed – it’s easy to forget the image isn’t running straight off a mammoth panel until you turn the beamer off unveiling your bland off-yellow wall.
What really makes the Optoma UHD60 special is the price. You might blow air out of your nose at the sight of the price tag being lauded as ‘affordable’ but for a 4K, HDR-capable projector, it’s a steal.
Optoma have put together a menagerie of features – previously kept locked behind gargantuan price tags – into their UHD60 projector.Read More

Even with the curtains open and the lights on (I review in the evening and it’s most definitely autumn right now) the image is clear, sharp and vibrant. However, close the curtains and flick off the lights and the colours really pop.
Straight out of the box, the depth and vibrancy of the video produced was impressive.
Also, the colour and brightness uniformity was pretty spot on.
Even when getting close to the image, it remains sharp.
Optoma have again managed to produce a projector that is impressive for the price.
I really like the colour depth and detail and the ease of set up. It also proved its worth for casual gaming, however I would suggest you looked at the GT1080Darbee if gaming is your main thing.Read More
Picture detail is unquestionably high. The projector looks particularly fine with the 10-bit 2160p output from a Sky Q set-top box. Star Trek Beyond is hugely engaging in terms of fine picture detail and colour vibrancy; Warcraft shows a mesmerising amount of texture and fine detail.
It’s often difficult to appreciate the resolution boost offered by 4K UHD on a relatively small UHD TV. However, supersize your sources to 100 inches plus, and the extra detail and depth becomes wonderfully self-evident. This Optoma does a marvellous cinematic job, particularly with the likes of Sky Q and streaming 4K dongles, as well as regular Blu-ray. Plus, colour fidelity is lush. It’s also compact and respectfully quiet in operation.Read More
