Optoma HD141X - $599.99 http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00MK39P92?pc_redir=1412721600&robot_redir=1

Just bought one 3 weeks ago, absolutely love it. I had an acer hd5360, this is leaps and bounds above the acer, and I loved that projector.

u/WaterStoryMark · 5 pointsr/NoMansSkyTheGame

Here's the one I have. I freaking love it. Great picture.

I have an Optoma HD141X Full 3D 1080p 3000 Lumen DLP Home Theater Projector with MHL Enabled HDMI Port projecting onto an Elite Screens 109 Inch 16:10 Manual Pull Down Projector Screen (57.8"Hx92.4"W). Lot of bang for the buck and still get surprised on the resolution of the picture and the overall viewing experience.

Many people that follow /r/projectors would suggest you just save your money for something better or to buy used off of eBay or Craigslist.

If this is your first Projector, I'd imagine there will be that 'Wow!' effect because of how big the screen is and how 'good' the quality is. That's how I was with my $100 projector, but I returned it because I wanted something better/more once I had a taste of it.

If you're 100% going to buy a cheap chinese LED projector then shop around a little bit. For example this projector is:

  • A company I've never heard of.
  • only 480p quality (compared to 720p or 1080p).
  • 800 lumens, this determines how bright or not so bright the projector is. That chinese projector probably will not get that bright. For example, one of the cheapest/reliable 1080p projectors is the Optoma HD141X. They advertise 3,000 Lumens.

  • 800:1 Contrast Ratio is just awful. Again, the Optoma HD141X has 23,000:1 Contrast Ratio.

  • The chinese projector is an LED based projector that claims to have a lifespan of 20,000 hours. We don't know how true this is or not. If you had a bulb projector such as our friend the Optoma HD141X, you would run the bulb for a suggested 5,000 to 6,500 hours then have to buy a new light bulb for it, which would probably be around $160-$180.

    TL;DR: If this is your very first Projector, you'll probably enjoy it and I'm excited for you. If you want a cheap projector, I'd search for 'projectors' on Amazon. Remember that because these projectors don't have many lumens and NEED to be in a dark room to be able to see anything. Read this.
u/PoopinWhileIMadeThis · 3 pointsr/projectors

Iv'e been looking at the Optoma HD141x, and for pretty much the same specs you're looking for.

It's 1080P 60Fps capable, 20,000:1 Contrast ratio. 3000 Lumens.

Most reviews talk about it favorably, and as soon as I have the money together, this is the one I shall be investing in.

Here's the Amazon link:


u/G_pea_eS · 3 pointsr/oculus

I figured thats what you meant. The only reason I said something is because I was a little let down by Oculus cinema, resolution wise. I was hoping for at least 960x540 (qHD) effective resolution, but I don't mind waiting for the 4k Note 5 ;)

It blows my mind that Optoma makes a super bright 1080p 3d projector for $600. Soooooo inexpensive.


u/BichRoddy · 3 pointsr/golf

I have the Optishot myself. It's not the most accurate unit and takes the right lighting to get proper club readings, but it's still fun to play around with. It has helped me with my swing a little by helping me practice getting a more neutral path. I used to swing really outside-in and using the Optishot has helped me correct that a little. Hopefully in a few years I can plunk down a few grand for something a little more accurate.


I'm using the following projector and screen. I bought these mainly for outdoor movie watching, but keep the screen set up in the garage when not in use then I just bring my laptop and Opti out and connect it to the projector.

u/edizzle1986 · 3 pointsr/somethingimade

This projector. The PVC pipe worked great. I used 1.5" and it is plenty strong.

u/candycabngfl · 2 pointsr/PSVR

I have been a projector guy since the CRT days, picked one of these up about a year ago. Running a 112' image the 3D mostly rivals the impact of commercial theater 3D, mainly what sets them apart is the lumen output is far lower than commercial projectors so you need to be able to control the lighting situation in the room to get the most out of them. The bang for the buck these days in the projector market is pretty incredible.


u/actual_black_dad · 2 pointsr/hometheater

This would be the cheapest I would be willing to go, regular price I mean. Optima Hd141x. If you are willing to go refurb there are cheaper quality models


u/Jmunnny · 2 pointsr/hometheater

I've been really happy with this one. Haven't tried 3-D, don't care about it either, but the picture is very nice, I have 245 hours on the lamp, and it's going strong.

u/Switch_it_over_to_AM · 2 pointsr/kodi

Don't waste your money as they're terrible at home cinema - put it towards getting a proper projector instead. The previous model of something like the Optoma HD141x should be cheap secondhand.

Just be careful if getting a DLP that you're not susceptible to the rainbow effect.

u/vicester · 2 pointsr/hometheater

Swap out your old projector for this one, get yourself a chromecast, done and you're just a little over $600 with a nice projector that has some longevity, and you're not in too much with the chromecast if/when you decide to replace it with something.

u/Wraldpyk · 2 pointsr/mildlyinfuriating

A proper TV costs as much as a good projector. Not talking about top projector of course, but you can get a good Full HD projector for $549. This projector can throw a massive screen, even during the day.

u/honer123 · 2 pointsr/gadgets


I have the "last years model" and I love it. It's too bad it's a little above your price ceiling, because you would have no regrets.

u/Optoma · 1 pointr/hometheater

The HD141X is actually the current top selling 1080p home theater projector on Amazon. Check out the reviews for more information about how others are using it. We'd also recommend using Projector Central's calculator to estimate your mounting distance. For your 120" screen, you will need to mount the HD141X 13'6" from the screen.

If you have any questions about the HD141X or any other Optoma projectors, let us know.

u/Bobdar · 1 pointr/xboxone


I bought this optima about a year ago for $600 and run it at 100" you can see it perfectly even in a well lit room with natural light during the day at night with the lights off it is better of course. You can go up to 300" it has 2 hdmi ports I use it for my xbox sometimes and as a third monitor for my pc. For the price you can't beat it. Games and movies look great on it. Do not buy a cheap projector that claims to be HD you will be very dissapointed. A lot claim to be 1080p but have a tiny resolution and your image will be fuzzy or pixelated.

u/HandjobSally · 1 pointr/projectors

Are you the United States? Here's a used 141x for $384. It's Amazon so if there is a ton of time on the lamp or the damage is more than cosmetic then you can return it. I think thats about the best you can do for value.

u/DronesWorkHard · 1 pointr/projectors

Maybe i should mention these projectors have caught my eye, but wondering if i should look at additional models

Optoma HD141X main attraction is 1080 at cheap price

Viewsonic Pro9000 main attraction is laser means i dont have to change the bulb every year?

Optoma GT1080 main attraction is that it says its made for gaming

i know this is a wide range. looking for smarter people than me help narrow it down, or point to other models i should include in the shopping list

u/LivingTheDr3am · 1 pointr/hometheater

Was browsing Amazon, what about this guy?

u/Mazzuolo · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

I have this projector, and it’s really nice. No input lag that I can notice. Unfortunately, it’s like $900 now for whatever reason, but the newer model is $500, so that could be an option for you. Only has two HDMI inputs though, which might be a downside.

u/Jew__Gold · 1 pointr/PS4

I've been using Optoma HD141x for the past 2 years and a 100" fixed frame screen. Works great.

u/Jordo_99 · 1 pointr/sysadmin

Found this today actually:

It's a home theater projector but it should be bright enough for your needs and is really cheap:

u/AnticitizenPrime · 1 pointr/linux

Have you considered going with a projector? Amazon has some 1080 projectors with good reviews for ~$550. I'm going that route soon, for a 110-inch display. I'm probably going for this one.

The 'brains' behind it will be a laptop, and a digital TV antenna (no cable).

u/Unspoken_Myth · 1 pointr/hometheater

I decided to buy some speakers off of an old friend. Less than a hundred hours of use, the Infinity Primus P363 towers pair, and an Infinity Primus PC351 center for a grand total of 270 bucks. Pretty sweet deal IMO.

Anyways, I live in an apartment, room size is probably 12' by 14'. I'll be playing music probably thirty percent of the time, and the other seventy percent will consist of a pretty even split of gaming and movies. Going to connect my Polk audio 10 sub (I think, still debating) to the system. All connected to a Yamaha stereo. Will be using a projector for my TV, and that will complete my home theater.

u/Lulxii · 1 pointr/projectors

I think this is what I'm looking for! I'm not sure how to go about picking one out though.. any tips? How do they compare to the amazon king: Optoma?

I'm inclined to believe that there are billions of projectors out there, but few have been bought and even fewer reviewed.

u/stallion21 · 1 pointr/audiophile

May have been asked in the past.. but I'm hoping someone can help me who knows way more about audio setups than I. So here is what I hope to accomplish if possible:

Amazon Echo playing sound from Amazon Fire TV Stick + Projector. Is it possible? How might I go about accomplishing this?
