“I can say that the Optoma UHX550X impressed me with the level of detail offered in 4K resolution, after calibration of course. Silent operation and audio playback are good and I can recommend it for use in the dining room but also in a conference room. For the price, this is the best choice for those who want a 4K budget projector.”

Because this is a single chip projector compared to the three chip D-ILA, 3LCD and SXRD competition, the UHD65 is very sharp with excellent edge definition without using any processing at all. Colours to the Rec.709 standard are also accurate producing a nice looking image with believable skin tones and no signs of posterisation with subtle changes in hue over a large area of the same colour, such as blue skies.

Until I received the Optoma UHD60, I was sure that no remotely affordable projector could ever do both 4K and HDR convincingly. I’ve never been happier to be proved wrong.

Its native 4K claims, meanwhile, are backed up by outstanding image detailing and sharpness when watching 4K sources. There’s no way any HD or even pseudo 4K projector I’ve seen to date could match the intense textures, fine shading, and freedom from both jagged contours and visible image/pixel structure that the UHD60 enjoys.

It upscales HD images to 4K with aplomb, making them look more detailed and textured, without generating obvious processing artefacts or noise

“Optoma’s UHD65 is capable of massive cinematic detail and vibrant colour”

“Overall HDR performance is fabulous though -thanks to its peak brightness of 2,200 lumens, the upfiring lights in the catacomb action sequence of John Wick 2 display the right amount of intensity.”

“In terms of picture quality, this is cracking.”

The Optoma beamer uses the DARBEE Visual Presence image enhancer tech to give you a more detailed picture, despite it still only being presented with a 1080p resolution.

But that’s not the impressive thing about this projector – it’s the unbelievably short distance it needs to be able to produce a genuinely enormous picture.

But what about gaming? It’s frickin’ glorious. Big-screen gaming is the canine’s danglies, especially if you’re playing something arcadey, like GTA or FIFA. But when your eyeballs are filled with your favourite games, writ large on the side of your house, it’s hard not to get a little goose-pimply over how good it feels to plumb your PC into a quality projector

Optoma HD29Darbee Review : Someone Take My Wallet

“If you’ve actually been paying attention to this review, you already know I’m going to tell you to buy this if you can afford it. Films looked great on it, the small sliver of gaming I did on it (Retro games on Raspberry Pi and a bit of racing on an Xbox One) looked stunning.”

“Pretty sure DARBEE is actual magic.”

Right from the off the UHD60’s images stand out from the same priced competition thanks to an impressive blend of sharpness, detail and HDR-ready brightness.

The biggest and best surprise about Optoma’s UHD60 is how well it handles HDR.

Yet the UHD60 squeezes out more shadow detailing and subtle low-level colour information with dark HDR scenes than any sub-£5,000 HDR projector I’ve witnessed, which immediately makes such content feel more natural and consistent to watch

The UHD60’s bright , ultra sharp and impressively balanced pictures make this affordable PJ an instant hit.  Looking for an upgrade on a Full HD model? Look here.

“This projector has amazing sharpness.”

“Exquisite image for bright and mixed scenes”

“With PureMotion, fluidity is really excellent, whether in 1080p or in Ultra HD.”

“Dynamic Black is so helpful for good black levels and contrast that I strongly recommend you use it”

“ANSI contrast is good from 300:1; well the Optoma UHD65 is a champion in this area with 520:1 after calibration. This is a very satisfying point because it obtains this image radiance specific to the best DLP.”

“it’s an ultra short throw projector, which means at a distance of just over a metre away from the screen or wall, you’ll be able to project a 100 inch image.”

“its integrated DarbeeVision image enhancement technology, which uses ‘neuro-biologic algorithms’ to enhance the image.  It’s the same tech used in the Optoma HD28DSE and it works brilliantly, giving the projector’s 1080p image considerably more presence than it would otherwise have.

That, combined with a 3,00-lumen brightness, which means it’s usable even in a bright living room and at a price that undercuts its rival by nearly £100, mean it’s our favourite gaming projector”
