Optoma HD142 XE Review

Optoma HD142X 1080p 3000 Lumens 3D DLP Home Theater Projector

This thing is a beast. It was used recently at all the major gaming competitions and at one point was selling so fast on the Korean market that HD131s were going for 2-3X market value on Ebay.

When it comes to image quality you just won’t beat the HD142. It’s high quality graphics processor makes the native 1080p resolution incredibly clear and real. Combined with a quality screen and you’re looking at a gaming matchup made in heaven. It’s also fully 3D compatible. It doesn’t have 4k but if you check out our Optoma 4k review you read more.

Here it is… (video of 141 but HD131 has the exact same specs)

While the price tag might seem expensive when it comes to the resolution quality it’s actually the one of the cheapest Optomas out there. One of the things that makes this a great pick for gaming is that the image is extremely bright, meaning you can play in a basement or even take your projector outside in the summer.

Epson HD131 High Quality Color and Definition Projector

You won't beat the HD131 for screen resolution and color quality. Color quality is what you want when watching movies outside.

Bright displays are a key feature if your playing any shooting game as you’re able to see opponents on the screen a lot easier. You can think the nice gamma on the HD131 for that.

If you’re playing any graphics intensive game multiplayer this is definitely a great choice. Call of duty or Fallout looks incredibly on this as well.

The image is 2500 lumens with a great 18000:1 contrast ratio for fine details. It’s totally compatible for Apple TV, all gaming consoles (not including the original Ninetendo), Blue Ray 3D DVD.

It also has a build in energy saving feature which allows you to save 1/3 of the power according to Epson. The unit itself is also extremely quiet.

For newbies, it’s easy to setup. It comes with an auto-detect setup screen that is 5 screens total (if I remember correctly form my last install).

Here is a quick few of the back to see the connections. For more info check out the full review here
