Watch the Lions Roar and Germans run
paul smith, staffordshire : United Kingdom, June 2018.Purchased from Currys
Wow Wow Wow Wow Wow.......... So needed to replace my current Optoma Projector; the item being in excess of 10 years old and original replacement bulbs now hard to come by. So purchased a new HD144x from Currys. There service was useless but this was more than made up for the projector. Our tv / cinema room is on a mezzanine floor and with the old projector we needed to sit in almost darkness with blackout blinds drawn across the balcony, but no longer! The quality of the new projector is superb even in daylight the images are sharp, crisp and full of definition, the projector itself quiet in use. The HD stream through the Sky box is great and when watching fast moving action films or sport you really are encapsulated in the moment and its just like being there and part of the action. So if you want to watch the lions roar at the world cup, and the Germans run away I can think of no better piece of kit. I highly recommend.......

Awesomeness in a Box
John B, Cumbria : United Kingdom, May 2018.Purchased from Currys
I previously purchased a budget projector and could only use it when it was pitch black. This lead me to start looking at other projectors. I spent a while looking at different brands and settled on Optoma. I have to say I am not disappointed with this projector at all. The quality is brilliant and no more walking into furniture as you can watch this projector comfortable with ambient light.
