“Often with a bright, multi-purpose media-room style PJ there’s a level of compromise, be it in colour fidelity or operating noise. This Optoma gets the presentational balance about right.  It looks convincing with movies but is also a fast, colourful gaming display. And the compact form factor is very convenient.”

HCC verdict:

“This entertaining all-purpose movie and games projector is cinematic when it needs to be, but offers low-lag gaming too. Darbee processing proves a welcome extra.”
