HD142X

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

“The video image from the HD142X was clear, sharp from edge to edge and top to bottom, and noise free. Cinema mode rendered very natural flesh tones, and after a slight boost in contrast and a reduction in brightness, highlight and shadow detail were well-defined. Black levels were excellent with dark scenes showing smooth transitions and small grey-scale differences easily distinguished.”

The HD142X is all about quiet brightness. Don't underestimate how useful is to have a projector that can be used at any time of day, and at the HD142X's low price, its 3,000 ANSI Lumens is a good value feature. 

Expect clean, crisp images with plenty of accurate color, and more contrast and shadow detail within black areas of the image that you've a right to expect at this price. And we loved the brightness of the lamp, which meant we could use the HD142X at midday and still see the image clearly.  

Long story short, if you're after a projector that you can take out of a cupboard for the occasional big screen movie or gaming night, the compact, versatile and great value HD142X is hard to beat.
