It’s never let me down and everyone loves using it due to the 12-foot display that it puts on my wall. Customers will receive a 90-day warranty with their purchase. Rated 4/5 stars.

Mobile Tech Talk

This is going to surprise none of you that have read an Optoma projector review before, but it’s awesome. What’s more impressive than the projection of the image though, is the quality of the projection, for the price of this unit.

The colours are nice and vibrant without being so over saturated they make your eyes want to bleed, but it is far from the sheer black magic that is the Darbee image processing on some of Optoma’s other projectors.

I said at the beginning of this that the HD143X is the TV replacement, and I mean that. The image quality is great, you get a nice sharp, bright image

Inverse
January 2019

The Optoma HD143X, an Inverse favorite. For $499, the projector can throw up a 1080p image up to 300 inches diagonal. A TV of that size in a home is almost unheard-of.

Minneapolis Star Tribune

The HD143x is my top projector recommendation in its class. To use it, connect the cable box and Blu-ray player to the projector with HDMI cables. There is an audio output on the back of the projector that you can use with the auxiliary input of a powered speaker to yield better sound.

The HD143x is my top projector recommendation in its class.

The base imagery straight out of the box is pretty decent. 

This is great for daytime use, normal TV, movies and playing games without having to sit in a dark room.

It is a good projector for the mid-range market.

It has got low latency and can be easily used during the day and its relatively quiet and small

It is very versatile and easy to use.

Well worth a look.

Optoma HD143X (£399) – This bargain buy comes from a big name in the projector game, and will get you a very respectable HD image on the wall for under £400. That's not bad at all. It's also got an attractive black casing that should suit most living rooms.

Live for Films
July 2018

I was very impressed. It is a smaller size and a lower price than many other projectors and gives a lovely crisp image.

When watching films it had great contrast, with very dark blacks, giving a clear crisp image with edge to edge focus. There was also virtually no rainbow artifacts, which was great.

When playing video games it also performed extremely well. Colours popped and there was no noticeable lag.

Due to the price and size of the unit, I would have to say that this is an excellent projector. Great value for money and  one to seriously consider getting if you have been thinking about trying one out.

The image quality is absolutely stunning.  Look at the image quality that this 1080p Full HD projector is bringing and I am sure you will be more than happy with it.

Even in daylight it is absolutely watchable. 

 

Tech 404

"This is one of the best sub-£500 projectors on the market"

It really does do a good job and it is pretty damn good for daytime viewing.  Black levels look really good as do white levels.

HD143X boasts Amazing colour technology and conforms to Rec.709 delivering accurate true to life colour reproduction. This small projector is ideal for watching live sport, TV shows or movies any time of day on a big screen. You can even connect your games console and play games on it with its low input latency.

First Full HD Projector
Mr J Lomas, East Midlands : United Kingdom, April 2019.Purchased from Argos
It's been 12 years since buying my "HD Ready" Epson projector and it was time to see how technology had moved on. This projector didn't disappoint overall - obviously having sound is great although I do feed it through front positioned speakers most of the time. Clarity is great, picture is bright enough. Bit noisy still when in bright mode but OK. Keystone correction was essential - shame no left/right offset which my old projector had and v.limited zoom which the 2007 Epsom was good at. Using a 100" screen so the distance the projector has to be is too much to be that convenient so a shorter throw projector is a must next time - maybe in 2031?

Bright, Vibrant Home Projections
Leo Barton, Southampon : United Kingdom, March 2019.Purchased from Amazon
The Optoma projector has completely rejuvenated my home-viewing of films. Being a filmmaker, film student and overall cinephile it is heartbreaking that so many films must be watched outside of the cinema. However with a projector like this, projecting at 1080p, crisp focus and vibrant colours, you can easily emulate a near-cinema experience at home (provided you have a good sound-system/headphones). Great value for money, being a projector of a higher class in a lower price bracket. Would highly recommend for enjoying cinema at home, in a dark room!

HD143X DLP Projector Superb Projector
Wladimir Baseden, 26 rue surcouf 75007 Paris, France : France, February 2019.Purchased from Amazon
So first off, I have only had experience with cheap projectors with weird, just different enough names to not infringe on trademarks. So if you are coming from a sub 200 dollar projector to this, your jaw will hit the floor when you see the differences. The picture quality is fantastic. I have just a little under 100 inches of screen, at about 9.5 feet throw distance. If you have a small room, this isn't a short throw projector, so you may not get the screen size you'd like. Tried some HD movies llke Blade Runner 2049 and Ghost in the Shell, and I was really impressed. You aren't going to get the blacks that you get on a plasma or OLED screen, but the colors were really vivid. Even with ambient light and lights turned on, the screen was still bright enough to watch without issue. The blacks turn into browns, but it is definitely watchable. I didn't notice any rainbow effect, either, which I guess is sometimes an issues with DLP projectors. I then hooked up my PS4 and tried out Horizon Zero Dawn, easily the best looking game on the system. The HD143x has a game mode in the menu settings that brightens the screen and does some things to fake an increase in FPS. This is noticeable. I could see the slight slowdown that usually occurs with lower FPS immediately, but I don't think it would be enough to hamper my playtime or my enjoyment. But if you are a pc gamer playing on a 120Hz screen and move to this, maybe not, I don't know if I'll be doing it.

Purchased an optoma HD143x. Long time fancied watching movies in a projector at home. My first purchase and I am happy about it. The contrast levels in the projector are very good and picture is crisp. Higher lumens , excellent contrast ratio. These are the two things that I can experience when using it.

This is a reasonably high spec full HD projector at an entry level price. It has a good level of brightness and 24 frame playback, which I like. It also has colour reproduction to rec.709 spec and keystone features which some similarly priced rivals do not. I’m very pleased with my purchase so far.

Wow!, As soon as you turn on the Optoma HD143x you know all the research into which projector to buy has paid off. It's so simple to set up that you don't have to wait long to see a crisp colour filled image. I initially used mine with a dongle and was stunned by the picture quality. I can't wait for the kids to return home from school...movie night tonight!

A fantastic investment
Zach Coburn, Sheffield : United Kingdom, November 2018.Purchased from Richer Sounds Sheffield
I have wanted a projector for some time now and having been disappointed with a cheap £60 one from Amazon I decided to treat myself and by the Optoma HD143X. The image quality is clear and crisp and easily bright enough to be seen with the curtains open. The projector itself seems well built along with the remote control and it is very easy to use straight out of the box. It came with both UK and EU power cables however it would have been nice to have some more in depth worded instructions as mine only came with a 1 page pictorial setup guide. I still managed to set it up fine and I’m sure there is a full manual online - save paper! Overall 10/10 fantastic projector and superb quality for what you pay.

This was the first projector I've ever bought and...wow!! I bought the projector as a TV replacement and I'm so glad I did. The picture is almost crystal clear and the colours are outstanding, especially at night. This is an extremely well-made product and many of my friends and family are now considering buying one themselves! The projector is extremely quiet when being used and having light-up buttons on the remote is a great touch! I definitely recommend this product - needs to be seen to be believed!

In short, ran it up as soon as it arrived and first impressions are that it's spectacular. Short term intention is to use it only for presentations but the power and clarity will make it infinitely more suitable for the challenging situations I find myself presenting in and for quality delivery of the video analysis content I use.

Optoma HD143X - Bedroom Projector Project
Mark, Devon : United Kingdom, September 2018.Purchased from Richer Sounds
Having recently built an extension for a master bedroom and on suite with dressing room I needed a projector that could project onto a vaulted ceiling. the idea being that the projector sits on top of a room divider partition above the bed and projects onto the angled vaulted ceiling therefore when laid in bed you have the perfect viewing angle. Now then, there are issues with this in that the image will have a massive keystone issue because of the angle of the ceiling. The bedroom is minimalist so we did not want screens or a TV on the wall. We needed a low cost, high quality projector with a massive amount of keystone correction. Lens/image shift would of course be better but in the lower cost bracket lens shift generally is not an option. As an occasional use projector we did not want to spend a fortune. Step in then the fantastic HD143X HD Projector form Optima. Low cost, excellent build and fantastic image quality. With the +/- 40 degrees of Keystone correction available this did the job without any noticeable loss in picture quality. It is quiet especially in eco mode and setup was as easy as it gets. The 10W speaker fills a 36 square metre bedroom so much so that at night it is set to volume level 1. The picture is exceptional for a low cost entry level projector. features such as true colour rec. 709, 24fps, Full HD and 3D capable and dynamic black technology makes for a enjoyable viewing experience and fantastic image quality. Connectivity is good with two HDMI ports one with MHL and a USB port that can also be switched on in the setup to provide power to a chromecast device or similar. I have a Now TV box and a Chromecast connected one to each HDMI that gives me all the options I need. There was really no down sides for me, especially considering the price. If I had to I would say the optical zoom at only 1.1x could be better. The size of the projector was a little bigger than I expected. That's about it though. Overall a very good value projector which has a surprisingly good picture and a good set of features and connectivity. An excellent pick for a home/general purpose projector whatever you intended use. For me it was the perfect solution for my luxury minimalist bedroom projecting onto a vaulted ceiling. I would highly recommend it for whatever your use especially if you require vertical offset projection.

Great Projector - Recommended
Paul Mansfield, Cardiff : United Kingdom, August 2018.Purchased from RicherSounds Cardiff
Easy to setup and use. Picture quality is very good, for the money paid its hard to expect more from it. Projecting onto a white wall, overlooked by a large skylight, nice and clear image and of course even better at night. Sound for me is fine on level 1 but a soundbar or quality speaker with line in would boost the cinema experience. Considered a 4K projector but decided not enough content easily available to make the cost worthwhile.

Suman Ananda, Stoke on Trent : United Kingdom, July 2018.Purchased from AMAZON
I have purchased from Amazon for £350, That is steal. When it comes to product. You can't get the better product with these Features within £500 budget. Pros 1. First and foremost thing is this is DLP from Texas Instruments, Most of the Theaters running with DLP projectors only because of Bulb long life & even when you change the bulb Brightness & Contrast remains as good as new. 2. It supports HDMI Dongle like Google Chrome-cast, Amazon Prime Stick and many more streaming devices, So it means, You can watch any program by steaming device. Not like other projectors won't support Dongle, Even though they have Wi-fi capability. it limits the functionality 3. 3000 ANSI Lumens , that is fanstastic. You can watch in bright sunlight too. 4. Light weight & compact too. Less than 2.5 Kg 5. Its supports MHL. Active 3D means you need Active 3D glass. 6. No lag when you are playing games with PS4. Cons 1. I wish it should have lens cover. 2. I wish it should support auto Keytone correction. 3. Sound could have been better.

Amazing projector, excellent value
Jason Curtis, Bucks : United Kingdom, July 2018.Purchased from Richer Sounds
Bought the HD143X as a replacement for a 7year old HD600X, and am so impressed with the improvement in image clarity (detail definition, sharpness, colour handling, depth of black). The projector was quick and easy to set up (I have it ceiling mounted on the Optoma universal bracket). I particular liked the ‘first install’ set up routine that starts with an easy selection of projection position (ie front / rear / table / ceiling). Another nice feature is the grid test pattern to enable perfect alignment with the screen through both physical positioning and using the digital zoom and keystone adjustment. A further advantage of this newer model is the noticeably quieter fan whilst using in eco mode (perfect for night time viewing or in a darkened room). If viewing in daylight then the ‘normal’ mode provides more than adaquate illumination of the projected image, with a little more fan noise - but once the soundtrack is playing it becomes less noticeable. Overall, I’m really impressed with the projector at its price. I don’t understand why anyone would spend 000s on ‘big’ TV, when for 00s you can have a 100”+ screen size.
