Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

The HD600X home cinema projector delivers the kind of picture quality associated with the best digital cinema performance around the world. With a digital HDMI signal you can create a true digital projection system that produces a spectacular Full HD cinematic experience in your own home. A masterly collaboration of HD Ready DLP technology from Texas Instruments and Optoma craftsmanship produces a stunningly bright image with perfectly balanced vivid colour, crystal clarity and the exceptional light and shade detail only possible with a high ANSI contrast projector.

ANSI Contrast is a way of measuring the true 'real world' contrast performance you can expect from a projector in your own home. This measurement technique includes a reproducible procedure that can be used to compare the performance of projectors using different display technologies. With an ANSI contrast ratio significantly higher than many LCD based projectors, the HD600X is the only choice for Home Cinema 'purists' that expect ultimate image fidelity in their home.

4.0 out of 5 stars Optoma HD600X Initial thoughts 27 Dec 2010
I have been 'away' from the projection world for a few years and the last one I owned was an Infocus Screenplay 7205 which was a fine Home Cinema Projector lacking only in absolute black levels. I have recently found myself in a position to get back into projection (new house/new room) and was looking for a decent projector on a limited budget. The Optoma appeared to fit the bill being well specified for a very good price. So having set it up, these were my initial thoughts.....

Firstly, it is tiny! With a footprint smaller than an A4 sheet of paper, it would easily sit on a bookshelf if you prefered not to ceiling mount. It could go on a coffee table but as the height of the projector represents the bottom of the image, you may want it a little higher so as to avoid using digital keystone correction (artificially 'squaring' up the image on the screen) which lowers image quality.
Quickly setting the image to CINEMA mode, putting the BRILLIANT COLOUR setting to +5 (0 is off, +10 is maximum) and checking the lamp was on normal and not bright I stuck on an HDMI connected Blu-Ray of 'Avatar' and was greeted by a vibrant, highly detailed and terrifically contrasty image. Blacks were brilliant and far better than I remember the Infocus having. Colours where rich without looking overblown and the image had great 'snap'. The Rainbow Effect (flashes of the primary colours when the eyes flick from side to side of the image caused by the spinning colour wheel) where not severe in my opinion but different people are affected on different levels of severity by this so I can't say for sure that it won't be a problem for you. It was certainly no worse than my previous Infocus.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent HD projector - would recommend 24 Nov 2010
Verified Purchase
This is an excellent projector for gaming or movie watching.
The projector is easy to set up and easy menu navigation allow you to quickly tailor the settings.
It can cope well with fairly bright conditions, I was considering buying a proper screen for it, but after trying it out on a plain wall decided that the picture was clear enough as it is.
I havent used the built in speakers much as I have some separate speakers but they seem ok, I would recommend using a proper hi-fi though.
The remote control lights up making it easier to use in the dark which i thought was a nice touch.
My projector is set up just over 3m from the wall and is projecting an image up to 2.3m diagonally.

One slight problem is the fan which can be a bit noisy, but it isn't that noticeable once you have sound playing.

All in all a great bit of kit and a must for anyone wanting to get their hands on a reasonably cheap HD projector.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy with confidence! 20 Dec 2010
I'm writing this review because before I purchased this product I spent a lot of time fretting as to whether or not it was going to be any good. I have just finished installing the projector as I wanted it and I can say that it is amazing. I am using it to play both my Xbox 360 and PS3 against an Optoma 92" screen that I also purchased. The projector is mounted on a shelf as I didn't want to have any leads running from the ceiling. The projector is 11ft from the projector screen and this is just about perfect. The projector incorporates a very nice cropping feature so it is easy to fit it to any screen size. I have used it very happily for both Call of Duty: Black Ops and to watch Blu-rays and have been extremely happy with the results. My only warning is that the sound quality from the projector is quite poor and so I would not rely on it solely as your only audio output as it really is tinny and doesn't handle high pitch sounds such as shouting and gunfire very well. I hooked up a simple 2.1 Logitech system about 40 quid in Argos and it sounds great! I would suggest anyone without a current speaker system buy something like this at the same time, so don't say you weren't warned. So if you were having any doubts, I hope that this has helped to resolve them. Hope you're as happy as I am with it.

By sam
This projector works well even with a VGA/SVGA connection which could be a concern for most who don't have HDMI ports on their desktops or laptops. The resolution for 720 P Blu Ray is exceptional but compressed Divx movies are a bit pixelated( it gets more obvious on a bigger screen). The fan noise is a bit audible but not a distraction when watching movies. Overall, resolution is great, and watching movies and online videos as well as viewing pictures is fun.
---------------AFTER 3 YEARS------------------------
After about 3 years, the problem in this projector is evident: after fair usage the DMD chip has started to fail, following which about 6 to 7 annoying white dots keep coming on the screen while watching anything on a projector screen. The cost of the projector at the time was 398 GBP and the cost to repair this is 200 GBP, about half the cost of the projector.
The projector bulb has a life of 918 hours, so am not sure why the DMD chip gave away, poor quality chipset maybe?

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb 21 July 2010
By Adam
Verified Purchase
Had this projector since 2010, no problems what so ever, great for watching films as they were meant to be seen! Just be careful, during a world cup or on champions league nights you might end up with friends randomly turning up, drinking all your beer and eating all your doritos and generally creating a mess.
