They need to lower brightness which sorta kills the potential of this projector. They could use a ND filter on it which could cut the lumens down greaty.

Hello all. i own an Optoma H27 bought more than a year ago. Im planning to upgrade to a 720p projector soon and i came across this HD65. My initial choice was the HD70. SO the question is, how does it compare to an old H27. My biggest worry is the RBE, as there r many negative comments on such factor here. With H27, RBE is never an issue to me, but with a brighter and higher Lumens of the HD65, im afraid it will becoming an issue to me. Thanks.

If you have no problem with the H27 you should be ok with the HD65. Buy from a dealer who has a return policy, usually with low hour usage.

OPTOMA HD 65 [REVIEW] [+FOTOS]



Official web page of the product:
http://www.optomausa.com/Product_det...product_id=341

Display Technology 0.62” DarkChip2 DLP® Technology by

Texas Instruments

Resolution Native 720p (1280 x 720)
Maximum Resolution 1080p (1920 x 1080)
Brightness 1600 Lumens
Contrast Ratio 4000:1 (Full On/Full Off)
Lamp Life (STD/ECO) Estimate at 2000/3000

Hours


-- It is really very small, lightweight, only 2Kg.

-- The finish is excellent, very beautiful too.

-- But the front ring corresponds to focus and put the rubber stopper, is lost the

focus for the next use.

-- The connection of first HDMI worked with the computer, recognizing and

generating the resolution 1280x720 automatically. The other connections worked at

first, he ftem a function of search, where he seeks connection which is receiving

signal.

-- Not done any calibration, image came with excellent color. More forward will

make a calibration and also a comparison.

-- A projection on the white wall really impressed me, without any preparation to

hit an excellent image quality. The only but is during the day, where a little more

clarity affected much the darker areas of the image.

Then some pictures during the day (camera compact and simple) of projections I made

once the projector arrived,:






Pictures of the night projections I made with more calm and using a photographic

camera better:











Ratatouille 1080p:

Display of 76 "wide right on white wall:




Support temporary, source of the images, a PC and DVI> HDMI:




The room, everything still temporary:



I am still studying whether support to buy, of roof or wall.

We saw Ratatouille 1080p and are impressed with the details, very interesting.

I am very pleased with the acquisition. Confess that I was worried, as a release,

but now I am much more calm.

I saw a little of the rainbow effect at last night, watching the movie Alien.

In scenes that show the stars. But the rest of the film not bothered me more.

Unfortunately we have to choose between the rainbow effect of the DLP projectors and screen door effect of LCD projectors.

I just bought an HD70 @ CC with 200 rebate to upgrade from Panny AE300. They had the HD65. I have 30 days to return the HD70. Any major advantage of the HD65 over the HD70. The 2 hundred buck difference is not a deal breaker for me if there is an advantage with newer model.

$200 shouldn't hold you back from getting the new machine. The HD65 is more than twice as bright as the HD70 your pictures will stay brighter much longer. New colorwheel, newer brilliant color makes the brightness. Blacks are still very good and contrast is high.

I took some pictures yesterday playing Wii. The quality of the images is close to that I am seeing here is that used the same camera compact.

Enabled the option Widescreen in Wii, used the composite video cable, because not yet have cable video component of the Wii.

In the tests I made between composite video and component video watching on the DVD Player, the image of the video component is more sharpness.

So I have to get a decent camera and a video cable component for the Wii, I tests with more pictures and comparative.

For now, follow a few pictures:








That last one is only to show the gain in field of vision on the screen wide playing with two people, because the quality of the photo was compromised:

Hi Guys

I just wanted to say thanks for posting some screenshots. The shot of the RAT under the bridge is great. It has excellent shadow detail.

I am planning to pick up the HD65 as soon as I get the funds together. I'm upgrading from a Benq PB6100, so I expect to be very pleased with the new machine.

Thanks again

Jason

I have the HD65 and occationally the pj will lose the signal (e.g. DVD going from menu to actual movie play, or during Wii game plays) but does reacquire it after couple of seconds. Has anyone experienced that as well?

Press "Source Lock" on the remote control.

This will disable the ability to search for signal that the projector has.

Comment here if it worked.

Peter,

I have the source lock turned on. I wonder it has to do with the fact that I am connecting component video output to the VGA port of the pj?

It works on the HD71 I have, over HDMI from a Tosh AX1. I watched two 2.35 movies in superwide scope today. Set the superwide option to auto, you need to use the vertical shift to up and raise the bottom of the screen up to get a clean fill. Easy with a electric screen like I have because it raises incremently. You might get lucky with a manual pull down and get just the right spot

What's interesting is once you have a screen set, if you run a 1.85 movie the aspect is ok, if you run a 4.3 movie it displays correctly also. Tzungilin, nice job on this setup.

I have found that the superwide feature only works on SD DVD's. And even then it pops in and out without warning. Even if you have it set to "on" and signal locked.

Nice idea, s h i t t y execution.

If you want it to work on HD-dvd's you need to set the overscan to approx. 10. It's a pain to always have to scan in and out. From now on I will leave it off.

I am using a toshiba A3 via component.
reuben9376, are you using component too?

Don't use set to on, use auto. I viewed HD-DVD and SD-DVD through HDMI,like I said in the above post and it worked perfectly. Didn't need overscan because of an electric screen. It's really made for a permanent setup on a 2.01 screen aspect. Optoma said they have a 2.01 screen planned for sale but I haven't seen it out yet.

If your aspect is still popping in and out there's something wrong with you machine.

It's under the display menu at the bottom. I just looked and it's there over component HDTV and confirmed over HDMI for HDTV or SDDVD. Keep trying people may be missing something, choose the auto choice not the on choice.
