Two years ago expert review site Techradar.com said “Picture quality eons better than that old data projector from work you used to use”. Mark34 wrote “To upgrade to the next/newer models) I decided to stick with Optoma because I was very happy with the quality and durability” .


Good Picture Quality

Terrific Value

Three customers concluded that it was good value for money. Website Testedtechnology.co.uk said in April last year “Terrific value”. Two years ago expert review site Hometheaterhifi.com mentioned in their review of this projector “THE OPTOMA HD28DSE is a fantastic value and the first display of any kind to include Darbee Visual Presence processing”. Pcmag.com said on expert website PC Mag “The Optoma HD28DSE 1080p home entertainment projector is small, light, inexpensive”.

Not Cheap
