What customers say about "Key Specs"
Optoma HD142X Home Theater Projector
  • I found this Optoma with great Contrast ratio and lumens with DLP technology.
  • Fully compatible at full HD and plays moves with minimal DLP artifacts.
  • Overall we are extremely pleased as we feel like we got great resolution and ease of use for the money.
  • This projector has the resolution and brightness I needed and is now a permanent fixture in the tv room.
  • Works perfect. It's a great fit for our room and is plenty bright enough.
  • The only thing I don't like is it takes a couple seconds to adjust the resolution or find the signal when you switch inputs or formats.
BenQ W1070 DLP HD 1080p Projector
  • In a dark room it's better than a normal 1080p tv
  • Brightness - One of the best projectors for rooms with ambient light; this also helps on the 3D end.
  • We love watching 3D movies and this is one of the best projectors I've seen. The playback is excellent with no jittering. There are some instances where rainbow artifacts can be seen but I don't mind it at all.
  • 1080p resolution is fine, it is sharp with BluRay, Apple TV, and a dumpy cable box.
  • Picture quality is considerably worse than top notch plasmas.

What customers say about "Display"
Optoma HD142X Home Theater Projector
  • Excellent picture and bright colors on this unit.
  • Projector has a very detailed and clear image! Even with the lights on it is easily viewed. Perfect for games, movies whatever you want.
  • Whole image is in focus, didn't have to adjust the colors, mounted in my garage, 100" screen, great football parties.
  • The picture quality is great. Just remember you need to have enough distance between screen and projector because the zoom just slightly increases or decreases the projection size.
  • Picture clarity, even when being projected onto a textured wall that isn't pure white, was amazing! The image really had a theater quality feel to it.
  • Better than most less expensive projectors but not as bright in color depth and image was a lil blurry.
BenQ W1070 DLP HD 1080p Projector
  • Colors are AMAZING on this projector. There is a reason it is ISF certified. The colors are fantastic out of the box but are even better when calibrated.
  • Sharpness and clarity are amazing. with 1080p Blu Ray content I was blown away with the clarity and depth of this projector.
  • The picture quality is breathtaking till like 140 inch screen (That was the biggest wall i could try on 11' wide and 6' high)
  • The throw distance is good. Easy to set-up & Easy configuration.
  • Color/Greyscale - Colors were near dead-on after calibration, as was the greyscale. This projector overall calibrated better than my Panasonic GT50.
  • Black level - Again, I could just be spoiled by my plasmas, but dark scenes can be noisy and blacks suffer.

What customers say about "Features"
Optoma HD142X Home Theater Projector
  • It has a higher lamp life than average.
  • Built in speaker is decent. Has modes so you coule project from behind as well. So far so good.
  • The noise level is low and it doesn't make as much heat as I would expect with a high lumen projector. Works great with our 120" screen for outdoor movie night.
  • The projector is plenty bright and has auto on/off features so you don't need the remote all the time.
  • The built in speaker is a plus, but I highly recommend external sound a small speaker in mono spoils the large screen experience.
  • Easy to set up and has a good picture, but after a few uses the fan makes a "clicking noise" for a few minutes until it warms up.
BenQ W1070 DLP HD 1080p Projector
  • Gaming is so much fun and i have not experienced any lag. I played call of duty, Fifa, Forza and my fav kinect sports(on big screen its the best).
  • The sound is good it's loud enough to watch movies and play games, I personally have it hooked to am AV receiver.
  • The test button on remote help you place the image exactly where it should be. Very helpful.
  • Inbuilt speakers - This might not matter to most, but if you're toting this thing around for outdoor use etc, the in build speakers are LOUD.
  • The fan is a little loud; I put it on high altitude because I am at 4400 feet. I only notice it when a video is absolutely silent, if there is any noise in the video I can't hear the fan.
  • The biggest problem I found was there is no vertical keystone. You have to keep the project exactly in front of the screen. Can not place it on a side table.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Optoma HD142X Home Theater Projector
  • HDMI ports, lightweight, decent speak that you can add surround sound as well.
  • It lacks the inputs of other projectors at only 2 HDMI inputs, but again not a problem, I didn't want a bunch of wiring. I use one HDMI cable to my receiver and add all other devices there.
  • It has a USB port to power up firestick.
  • Another nice feature of this projector is the 12v trigger port. It allows you to automate your electric screen. By wiring the 12v trigger to the control box of my screen, I now have my screen automatically lowered when I turn on the projector.
  • Easy to take with you or mount for permanent viewing.
  • I don't like the location for the screws to mount on the ceiling just cause it makes it difficult to keep level since mount is not centered. Don't know if that is a fault of the projector or with the mount itself.
BenQ W1070 DLP HD 1080p Projector
  • Inputs switch much quicker than compared to the Epson 8350 or Optoma HD20
  • Lots of inputs on the back if you don't use a receiver
  • Regarding connectivity, I exclusively use the HDMI ports and use optical audio out on my two devices hooked up to it.
  • Does not have a usb port on the back, can not power a chromecast or amazon stick from the projector.
