This is by far the best projector you can buy for under a thousand dollars. Statistically speaking of course. This thing has no problem doing 1080p, in fact, it would rather. Its native resolution is 1920×1024 which delivers such a beautiful picture that you simply won’t believe this little projector is doing it. The 1700 ANSI Lumens will be plenty to watch a movie in your living room at any time of day and it will display the colours beautifully as well.
So, after looking at the projector, at the stats, and reading a few customer reviews, you’re asking yourself how in the world Optoma can do all this for a thousand bucks. It is a fact that technology is cheap. Buying LCD’s, circuit boards and fans in bulk is really cheap. Finding someone to put it all together is also cheap. The only stage of electronic production that isn’t cheap is the research and development and advertising. Optoma doesn’t spend very much on either of those things. They know their product extremely well, stay on top of new innovations in their field and then let the product do the advertising for them. It is this reason that they can build such a quality product for $1,000.
The Optoma HD20 is a shining example of when a company puts its nose to the grindstone and concentrates solely on releasing a quality product for the lowest price possible to its customers. This is a company I have no problem supporting because in the past, they have produced an incredible product that the likes of Sony just couldn’t compete with because of their low overheads. If you have heard about this projector, consider yourself lucky and pick one up.
