The Digital Fix

June 5, 2017

The HD142X is a budget priced 1080P DLP projector that can comfortably throw a near-flawless 120-inch image in most living room spaces

The 1080p image was crystal clear, easily on par with a mid-range large screen TV, but more than twice the size, price per (quality) inch we think the HD142X is unbeatable. Sharp lines and a good colour range that benefits from the 23,000:1 contrast ratio makes even the most basic screen setup pop.

Overall:  For quality picture per inch, you won't find a better value projector 9 out of 10

Great experiences at reasonable price

We are impressed with the colours, texture and transitions. The small details of skin tones and the naturalness with which everything is reproduced. When the price is included in the equation, Optoma has committed a little stroke of genius with the HD27, as long as you have a room that you can darken somewhat.

Compared to the more expensive models, we missed “lens shift”, which makes the setup easier. But otherwise there are plenty of nice settings, and the presets for movies, games and other genres work well in practice

“If you’re looking for a projector to game on, the Optoma GT1080Darbee would be our first pick. The colour and detail is simply incredible, creating lush, rich environments on a screen bigger than almost any TV available. The short throw allows it to be used in almost any room. You don’t have to have a huge theatre room specially designed for it. Just chuck it on your coffee table, plug it in, and enjoy a gaming experience that all your friends will be jealous of.”

“Lab Tests: What the Meters Say

“BRIGHTNESS. The ZU850 is rated at 8000 lumens. Our test unit equipped with the optional BX-CTA06 lens delivered 8530 lumens in Bright and Constant Power modes thus exceeding its rating . . . most uncommon performance for the majority of today’s projectors.

“BRIGHTNESS UNIFORMITY. The ZU850 exhibited excellent uniformity of about 90%, which is why the ANSI lumen rating of 8000 is not much below the center spec of 8200 lumens.”
