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.”

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.
