Optoma HD27e review & specs

Optoma HD27e: Good Choice for 3D Movies and Games

Optoma HD27e

The Optoma HD27e is a compact (3.7 x 11.7 x 9 inches) functional device, which copes well with its main task in a room with moderate exposure. Fast response and high-quality built-in sound make this projector a good option for games. The remote control is comfortable to use, but it has to be aimed accurately. Every user gets a 1-year warranty from the date of original purchase and 90 days on the lamp.

Design

The white body frame is quite compact and ribbed side contributes to good ventilation. Despite all these, the sides have to be wiped quite often (as the dust is accumulated on them). Two HDMI 1.4 (one of them supports MHL technology), USB Type-A, VESA 3D Sync, a 12V trigger, and a standard 3.5mm mini-jack can be seen on the rear panel of the Optoma HD27e projector. All of them strictly perform their functions.

Features

The Optoma HD27e review demonstrates that the specified model has the following specs:

  • It supports Full HD 3D and can be used with 3D glasses DLP-Link and VESA RF that make it possible to fully enjoy the 3D feature.
  • The 3D mode can be customized, as the Standard and Custom modes are available.
  • It works quickly with games; the delay is only 16.4 milliseconds when the Enhanced Gaming mode is turned on.
  • The brightness of the lamp is on average 65% of the maximum when activating the Eco mode.
  • Lamp resource is 3.500 hours in the Bright power consumption mode and 12.000 hours when Dynamic Black is turned on.

Performance

The 10W mono speaker provides high sound quality for such a compact projector, as well as sufficient volume for a small or medium-sized room. The noise is heard during the movie interludes with a fading sound in the Bright lamp mode. When talking about the Eco mode, the noise is quiet and hardly noticeable with any background sounds. Even without additional settings (right out of the box) the Cinema and Reference modes give realistic colors along with a good level of contrast and volume of the scene. Contrast and a sense of depth in the Game mode are not as good as in Cinema, but the image quality is good enough for everyday use in the living room or your backyard. The image will be completely located above the center of the lens when installing the HD27e on a table, and its lower border will be 18% of the image height above the center of the lens.
