Re: Optoma HD23 projector with problems

I had some issues w Optoma, so I quit selling them ... Go get an Epson or a JVC if you can afford more $$...

Re: Optoma HD23 projector with problems

i know what you mean.

Now that I've been testing the projector I've realized that I can see the rainbow effect.
This probably will be another reason for moving to an 3DLP Epson projector.

just be forewarned that to get as good an image as the DLP you're gonna have to spend a good chunk more to get it. probably at LEAST the Epson 8350 level. (and that's for 2D)

I agree with you Mike.

That's the exact model that I've been researching lately. Although it's an old model, it seems to have a better price/value ratio than newer models.

it's a great model, a bit overpriced, but still a very good model for the LCD world if you don't care about 3D. if you do it's time to start looking at the $2500 range as that's the next big jump in quality (and it's a big one )

I really don't care about 3D capabilities.

What other brands/model should i consider?

I might try demoing the BenqW1070, it's got MUCH less of a chance of seeing RBE since, unlike the HD23, it has a 6x color wheel.

other than that, if you don't care for 3D the big jump is the $2500 price range where you have the Epson 5030, and the LCOS projectors

Re: Optoma HD23 projector with problems

Thanks a lot Mike

I will have this in mind also, but I think it's higher than my current budget
