Will be nice to have a different RGB Optoma besides the HD30b. It should be quite exciting if it gets priced near the 131xe. Should be possible if they stick with the 190w over the 250w, while still putting out more lumens in a comparably balanced picture setting.

Looking at the remote it shows 3 discrete user buttons:

The 3000lumen claims doesn't add up with an RGBRGB CW. I wonder which is which.

I have read on a few different sites that the HD36 has an RGB/RGB color wheel, wish we could find out for sure. But, I have also read that this thing is quite large compared to Optoma's other projectors. About 16" wide, 12" deep, and 6.5" tall, and weighing in at about 10lbs. Why is this projector so big and heavy ?

I'm still betting everything that this hd36/hd151 is just a software update to Optoma's hd25lv business projector. Specs and prices read the same, and it's the appropriate model for replacement between the hd25e/hd131xe(hd26/hd141) and old hd25(new hd50/hd161).

I'm more confused about the reports that their hd50/hd161 is still stuck with a single user setting instead of the new three user settings that this cheaper business model appears to have.

Optoma very explicitly says that the HD36 is an RGBRGB color wheel, so if it's not, they're propagating misleading information. http://asia.optoma.com/Product/Produ...egory=SG9tZQ==

It'd be interesting to get some clarity on this (as well as real-world pricing). Let's see what the real-world reviews have to say when they start to surface.

I'm more confused about the reports that their hd50/hd161 is still stuck with a single user setting instead of the new three user settings that this cheaper business model appears to have.

The lower-end HD26, in a useful improvement from previous models (which I'm sure applies to this HD36 in the event of a single preset), allows any changes made to the existing presets are stored on that preset (and don't overwrite a separate User Preset) - so it's not the end of the world if that's the case here, too.

Still, it would be nice to have more than one dedicated user preset button on the remote for all their home-theatre units since it's a common scenario for users to have differing, dedicated 'day' and 'night' preset settings.

Seeing that the brightest 240-300watt(lamp) rgbrgb models still max-out at 2000-2200claimed lumens, this hd36/hd151 is either not RGB or not anywhere near 3000white/green-lumens.

I'd have to bet on the former rather than the latter as Optoma already has their hd50/hd161 and is unlikely to release a competing RGB model for the next couple of years.

Thanks Kreeturez, that's still great news. Repurposing presets as extra user-modes is fine since presets are usually way off and require at least small tweaks anyway. Just having the room for a daytime and a nighttime saved setting will be a huge improvement. even without a speed-button on the remote.

Guess we'll have to see!

Interestingly, the HD26 datasheet indicates 3 user presets on the remote (I'm assuming the third is for 3D):
http://www.projectorcentral.com/pdf/..._spec_8302.pdf

...as does the HD141X:
http://www.optomausa.com/webresource...asheet_web.pdf

...while the most expensive of the lot, the HD50, has none (could this be an error?):
http://www.optomausa.com/webresource...asheet_web.pdf

...and a datasheet for this HD36 isn't provided for some reason so there's no way to be sure.


In any case as we said above: it doesn't matter all that much provided preset changes are saved to that preset, which appears to be the case.

The lamp life is a bit shorter than usual (likely because of its high power), but this looks set to be the Optoma to watch out for!

And there're three user quick-buttons on the remote according to that gallery. As above, likely two for 2D and the last for 3D.

If implemented properly, this really does look like a potentially very impressive offering.
Now I just want to know about pricing and black levels!

The 3 presets will be 2D, even the 131Xe which officially only had 1 preset but that was 1 for 2D and 1 for 3D so really 2.

I was dead set on getting a HT1075 in a couple months once I get my new house built, but this may be a strong contender with RGB-RGB. Especially with the added brightness because I will be using this in a multipurpose room. Now if we could just get some hands on reviews.

Can't say I've been this excited/happy about being wrong before. Isn't this hd36 cheaper than the hd50? Especially with a 310watt lamp making the entire device more costly to manufacture, does this strike anyone else as odd?

The euro-specs look pretty legit except the total wattage draw looking a little low at 345w with the 310w-lamp and 30w-speakers.
The color numbers and wattage:lumens seems to support the RGBRGB claims, so that's awesome, particularly at a wattage (and price) that otherwise sounds so business-class.

Color-accuracy will probably be worse than the w1070 as it currently is with the hd50, but there's no reason future updates can't improve that just as they have with the w1070. Black-level will likewise be slightly poorer between the extra lamp-wattage and lack of an iris, but contrast has every right to be about the same so there's no reason an NDfilter couldn't be used.

That zoom looks pretty immense and should give the new Epson 3000's some good competition.

I'd definitely hold off in your case: at least until you're in the new house (first rule of tech: purchase only when it's needed - since it almost always depreciates!)

Assuming they're still using DC3 DLP coupled with such a bright lamp, I'd agree black levels may be high (an iris might indeed have been useful). Hopefully not too high.
But assuming the specs are correct - then for really large screens or use in significant ambient light, this ought to be at the top of the consideration list.
In contrast, in a semi-dark (or darkenable) room, the reduced lamp life and expected extra heat/noise/power-consumption, along with certainly more expensive replacement lamp-costs - probably doesn't make all that much sense (in that case, may as well get a more suitably-bright projector that doesn't require an ND filter to begin with: HD50/W1070 or the like for instance...)

That said, I'd also imagine great 3D brightness at larger screen-sizes would fit the bill for this projector, too!

This could be a big deal. A possibly very solid replacement for the HD25-LV, then?

I think Optoma may be making something of a return-to-form between this and the also-impressive HD50. Would love to see some reviews on this (and holding thumbs on reasonable local pricing!)
