Some short visual Optoma HD143X reviews will help see that the unit is rather compact (9 x 11.7 x 3.8 inches) and has a black body frame, so no fingerprints will be marked on it. The lens system is located in the center of the front panel, which has a ribbed design that goes to the sides and rear part. There are all the necessary interfaces (HDMI/MHL, USB 2.0, audio output, etc.) for full daily work.

If you are into gaming, the fast response of the unit will be a pleasant surprise for those games in which reaction time matters. While optimized settings for displaying the 2D video content using, the projector provides an acceptable neutral level of color tones, good contrast, and a sense of depth. The Optoma – HD143X also rarely makes a rainbow effect that even viewers who are usually inclined to easily notice it may overlook it. The lens provides a sharp focus from edge to edge of the screen. Images with repeating patterns also easily maintain sharpness across the screen. The Cinema and Reference modes guarantee realistic colors even without additional settings. If you need more brightness, you can activate the Bright mode, which in some scenes gives the image a slight greenish tint. Along with the effect of posterization, this green tint becomes most noticeable when reproducing close-ups with human faces.
