Full 3D

Display true 3D content from almost any 3D source, including 3D Blu-ray Disc™ players, 3D broadcasting, and the latest-generation game consoles. Support for 144Hz rapid-refresh rate provides ultra-smooth flicker-free images. Optoma 3D glasses required.

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.

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.

    This is the third Optoma projector I have purchased in the last ten years. I have “lost” my previous two because of selling my home and moving. When a prospect buyer sees your projector the demand you leave it with the house. So I just buy a new projector and it has to be an Optoma.

    5 out of 5 Unbelievable Value!

    First off, I am far from an expert in the context of projection, and this is my first unit designed for video rather than data/business projection.

    That being said, I can confidently say that 90% of people will absolutely love this unit right out of the box with factory settings, it is that good.

    However, due to the nature of single-chip DLP, there will be the 10% that see “the rainbow effect.” Unfortunately, I am one of those people and immediately noticed the effect when rapidly shifting my eyes across the screen in high-contrast scenes.

    The good news is that you can “train” yourself to simply not see the effect. Once you understand that the effect is basically an optical illusion, tell yourself that its not there, and within a couple hours of viewing, you will have to make yourself see it. It sounds insane, but it works.

    Now, onto the projector itself:
    – On eco mode, the fan is virtually silent. It becomes barely audible on dynamic or bright mode if you are sitting near it, but still not loud.

    – 3000 ANSI lumens are PLENTY to combat moderate amounts of ambient light. I am projecting a 107″ diagonal image onto a beige wall (proper screen coming soon) from 12′ 7″ away in a room with three windows and two 60w lights and the picture is completely watchable. Of course, its better at night, but that goes for any projector. With a proper screen, I fully expect to leave the blinds open and have a perfect picture day or night!

    – The color accuracy on the new “Reference” mode are nothing short of stunning. If I didn’t have so much ambient light, I honestly wouldn’t bother with a screen.

    I could go on and on about this projector, but it just wouldn’t do it justice. If you are in the market for a sub $1,000 projector, you’ve found it. Stop stressing and comparing like I did for months, and just buy the HD142X, you won’t regret it!

    4 out of 5 Nice Machine

    I am a first time projector buyer and am really pleased with this unit. There are projectors with more options and better specs out there but at some point we all have a budget. The image you get for the price is incredible. Add to that the fact that it will do 3D and nothing else on the market comes close to giving you the same bang for your buck. The unit is very easy to set up. We pulled it out of the box, dialed in the focus, connected it to our cable box and were off and running. From the time we opened the box to the time we were watching an On Demand Movie was about 5 to 10 minutes. The menus are easy to understand. The remote is easy to understand.
    My only complaints are very minor. 1) There needs to be more adjustment on the sound. Each time you press the volume up or down it increments 1 step. However, there huge difference between each step. You go from 1 step which is too soft and then the next step is too loud. Many people will use this unit with a surround sound which make this a non issue. 2) The back lighting on the remote is too bright. If you are watching this projector in a dimly lit room and press a button it takes your eyes a while to adjust to the brightness to be able to read the remote. Once again, a minor complaint. 3) There is a different button to turn the projector On and Off. I realize this sounds like a silly complaint and it is. But everything else on the planet has 1 button for On and Off.
    Overall this a great projector. It is simple to set up and use. The picture right out of the box is amazing. If you are someone that likes to adjust every little thing this is not for you. However, I think the vast majority of people will appreciate the simplicity of this projector. This projector proves that it is not necessary for a projector to have tons of adjustments to get a great picture.

    5 out of 5 Couldn't Be More Pleased

    After reading hundreds of reviews, I was about to purchase an Optoma HD141X, before I came across a review on the HD142X. After talking to an Optoma customer service rep and comparing the two, he recommended the HD!142X for my specific needs. I received the unit yesterday and spent all night (and well into the morning) watching the Olympics and movies. Incredible viewing. I couldn’t be more pleased with this projector. My son has one that cost 5 times the HD142X and mine clearly surpasses his in every aspect. Great unit and great advice from the Optoma rep.

    First time projector buyer for home theater/game room and extremely happy! Projector was easy to set up and we were able to use it within minutes. Image is clear in light or dark. I do not hear any fan noise which other reviews noted. The only thing my teenage sons noted was the audio is unclear when volume is turned up (I think it is fine) but based on the price, doesn’t bother me!

    4 out of 5 Nice Projector!

    This is the first projector we bought along with 120 inch screen.

    We were impressed with the quality initially.

    The picture quality is good. bright and vibrant. We have been using for a week.

    But noticed slight difference in the picture and color quality. unsure if that was a setup . But the initial crisp and sharpness is missing. unsure why. The picture seemed to be smoky now. Tried multiple options, adjusting display mode to vivid, cinema. yet to look out other options.
    – Also unsure how to adjust the mode to economy from bright to improve the lamp life. It defaults to bright mode.

    Summary
    – Easy setup
    – have nice options to adjust the focus, lens shift and keystone.
    – Nice to have a speaker. But looks like a mono speaker.
    – Acceptable Noise level

    I have been using this projector for about a week now and am more than satisfied. This is the first projector I’ve owned and couldn’t be happier that I chose this one. The image quality/clarity is amazing, as well as the brightness (even in a lit room). The settings are easy to adjust with the remote or on the projector itself. The fan is quiet. Overall, this is a great product.

    Over all – very user friendly and light weight. I would recommend this projector to anyone.

  16. Bob Jurgensen

    4 out of 5 Love the picture quality and brightness... BUT

    Remote is defective and only works at about 2′ – called for TS and was told to file an RMA.

    Also, according to manual the “throw” for this project for a 120″ screen is 12.89′ to about 14′ and change – however I have about a 2-3″ border all the way around my screen between screen and black masking – again, TS’s solution, after asking if I had use manual zoom (I was at max) was to return it to retailer for defective optics. Seriously – Both times I have spoken to TS (in a 2 hour period) I felt “blown off” – seems their answer to everything is to return it to retailer OR send it in for repair – almost no effect to at least go through a few checks. Seems like they just want to get off the phone.

    This is my second Optoma projecter but it may be my last – I like it but the optic’s throw issue is causing me heartburn if I have to move my screen back a foot or more (projector position is fixed) .

    Sure hope I at least get the $50 rebate for writing a review to offset my hassle factor here.

    4 out of 5 Even Better than Expected

    Everyone is impressed with the picture quality. This is our first projector and it has exceeded our expectations. We are using this projector with an 84″ diagonal 16:9 manual screen. The projector arrived one day before the screen, on the first day we used a new sheet of drywall sheetrock temporarily but the image is considerably brighter and clearer on the projector screen. We mounted the screen and projector inside our outdoor gazebo for movie nights. The projector is mounted about 10 feet away from the 84″ screen. The image is definitely at its best after sunset when it is a bit darker outside.

    We are using an Amazon Fire TV box as our media source, and the Fire TV bluetooth provides audio to our stereo sounddock. The projector has built-in speakers which can be used in a pinch, but the sound quality is poor enough that you will not want to endure that for long.

    The included remote for the projector is an IR remote and it can be a little frustrating (would give 5 star review if the remote was an RF remote). With the IR remote you must point the remote at the top of the projector, if the projector is mounted overhead the remote control works better than when the projector is on a table.

    All in all a great projector though!

    5 out of 5 Makes TVs Seem Obsolete

    I bought this projector a few days ago, and I could not be happier with it. I haven’t gone through the process of mounting it to the ceiling or anything yet, but getting started was a breeze. I plugged in the power cable, inserted an hdmi cable that is connected to my X1 box… and that’s it. Turned it on and I had a beautiful 1080p image presented right on my wall.
    I currently have the projector about 14 feet away from the wall, and while I haven’t measured it, the image size is huge (well over 120″ I’d say).
    I can’t say enough good things about it. Setup is very simple, the image size is enormous, image quality is fantastic, brightness is more than adequate , and the built in speaker works fine (granted a home theater speaker system is still recommended).
    For around $600 you’d probably only be able to buy a 50″ TV. A 120″ Vizio TV costs $130,000 and has to be special ordered. But for $600 you can get this projector that can display an image as small as 27″ or as large as 300″. In my opinion, that makes TVs obsolete

    5 out of 5 Amazing

    I am very satisfied with the projector. This is my first home projector, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. I was looking for a movie theater-type experience and was pleasantly surprised with how close it was to what I love about movie theaters.

    4 out of 5 Good Projector

    Good, this is a great starter projector and very cheap. But don’t let the price fool you. The Optoma HD142x can hold it own with the rest. It shows up good with lights turned on and produces a very solid image. Some of the features to look out for are the color brightness and the lamp life. Overall pretty good projector. I gave it 4 stars because the speaker sound it terrible.

    4 out of 5 Loving it...

    This is my first home theater projector and I’m really delighted with the end result. I live in a condo and don’t have a dedicated theater room. So, this projector affords me the option of having a great theater experience when I want it and when I don’t, my living room isn’t overwhelmed by some oversized television clinging to my walls. My Optoma’s picture is sharp and engaging, with crisp colors. I was a little jarred by the noise level, but, after about 5 minutes, the machine settles into its work and the roar dims to a gentle hum which quickly becomes unnoticeable. All-in-all, really great product.

    5 out of 5 Awesome product!

    This is my first time buying a projector, and I awaited the arrival of the HD142x on July 21st so that I could own the upgraded version to the HD141x. I am amazed by the resolution, even with light situations, and the colours are outstanding!

    5 out of 5 Experience theatre quality picture at home

    We have always wanted to try out a dlp projector but they are so expensive. Recently Optoma came out with this new model and for the price I had to try it out.

    So far we have watched 3 movies on this device and my wife and I are very happy with the colors, brightness (has several modes), size of unit and the picture quality is great. We also own a 4kd hd tv and prefer to watch movies now on this projector. Currently we are projecting on a wall with some texture and off white and still the picture is incredible at about 120″ diagonal.

    The speaker sound is fine but I prefer using our Bose sound system. This is a great buy. Don’t hesitate to purchase.

    5 out of 5 Amazing Picture, loved it!

    I read the reviews and seen it was a best seller on Amazon so I pre-ordered the HD142X. Let me just say it lived up to my expectations and more. It’s a nice, crisp picture at 8′ x 14.5′, which I projected on to the side of my garage. Now I can enjoy movies at 200″(diagonal), in my backyard..under the stars..with some snacks..and drinks of course! 😀

    5 out of 5 Good projector for the price

    I ordered this projector as soon a release date was announced. Coming from a 720p 3LCD Sony VPL-AW10 my expectations were not disappointed. First thing to notice is how bright this projector is. I can literally watch anything with lights on and also during the day with the blinds opened. One thing that stands out is the 3D performance. Honestly better than my local movie theater. One thing though is the rainbow effect. I dont know if is just me but I can notice it quite a bit, but is non distracting while movie is playing. I guess you can say I am happy with my choice.
