Optoma HD66 720p DLP Home Theater Projector

The HD66 is a bright little package, rated at 2500 lumens maximum. Now, the HD66 is marketed as a 720p projector, since that is the maximum resolution at which it can display 3D content. However, it has a 1280x800 DLP chip, so not only can it display native HD 720p, but it can also display computer signals in 1024x768 and 1280x800 without compression as well. It will display HD 1920x1080p/60 in compressed form. It cannot display 24p natively, but it is sometimes difficult to tell the difference between 60p and 24p even on native 1080p projectors.

  1. Movies are so great to watch projected in HD. Does your pay-TV provider offer the most HD channels like HBO Family, EPIX, or Turner Classic Movies? DISH Network does. That' one advantage of working there; if I had DirecTV I would be missing out on all the greatness. DISH has more HD channels than any other provider.
