Optoma unveiled the successor of HD141X, a model that was the ultimate value for money because anyone could gain a full HD projector for under 600$.
The new HD142X is a natural evolution of the HD141X and the most important is that still moving in the same pricing policy!
Sightings at Amazon sold for $ 579.
The lowest price of the new HD142X in relation to competition is due to the cheaper dc2 DMD chip that use instead of the dc3 of all the other DLP projectors of cheap class (~ 1000$). But keep in mind that this slight retreat in contrast saves you some serious money
The new HD142X has been improved in terms of image output and now comes with a new picture mode on the menu, the REC. 709, which means that the projector is already color configured from the factory to be close to ISF color standards.
On his strong points is the very high brightness of 3000 lumen and the increased lamp life (at 6500 hours!).
Optoma also gave the MHL feature to one of the two HDMI inputs in order for the owner to connect easily and seamlessly his smart devices and view HD material on HD142X.
The HD142X is a DLP technology, for those who don’t know, and is full 3D compatible.
Finally i must say that the HD142X can be connect to the wireless HDMI Optoma’s Kit EHD200 (sold separately) and the owner can get rid of HDMI cables, something important for many of us.
