Optoma PT105 LED projector review
Projectors are big, noisy expensive things that only business people or cinema buffs buy, right?
After all, who’d want a projector in their house when modern TVs are so good? Answer: anyone who’s tried the excellent little Optoma PT105, of course.
It’s not quite a pico-projector — they’re the pocket-sized video sources that can hook up to a mobile phone — but the PT105 is incredibly small for what it can do. And that’s display games and movies at lifesize scale from almost any video source.
The key to the PT105′s abilities lie in its excellent lens. It uses technology based on pico-projection to keep the size and cost down, but the big lens makes the relatively low resolution images seem much more sharper and colourful than rivals.
The PT105's video quality puts most pocket projectors to shame
On top of everything else, the PT105 is really easy to set up and move around too, so if we ever get a summer this year with warm evenings, you could even try taking it outside for a late-night cinema session on the side of your house.
Invite a few friends round and fire up the barbecue; it’s a great way to enjoy film favourites or to challenge them to an Xbox game or two.
Historically, as video entered the digital age, home projectors went out of fashion due to their high price and complexity.
The PT105 tackles both these issues head on and proves that there’s something about a giant projected image that even the best big TVs can’t match.
Buy it now at Tesco direct.
Brilliant quality for a very reasonable price, all cinema aficionados should check it out.
