OPTOMA HD27E IS THE BRIGHT­EST, CHEAP­EST HD PRO­JEC­TOR YET

Optoma has in­tro­duced an up­graded ver­sion of its low-cost DLP HD27 home en­ter­tain­ment pro­jec­tor. The new HD27e has a bump in im­age bright­ness and runs qui­eter, at 25dB, says the brand.

Con­nec­tions in­clude two HDMI in­puts, one with MHL sup­port. There’s also a USB power port, al­low­ing the self-con­tained use of an HDMI don­gle, such as Ama­zon Fire or Chrome­cast.

The pro­jec­tor fea­tures an in­te­grated 10W speaker, but there’s an au­dio out­put for ex­ter­nal sound sys­tems if re­quired.

The bud­get Full HD pro­jec­tor out­puts a bright

3400 lu­mens, enough for am­bi­ent lit me­dia rooms. An RGBRGB colour wheel cov­ers the Rec 709 colour space. A ded­i­cated gam­ing mode is avail­able to re­duce in­put lag. The pro­jec­tor is com­pat­i­ble with Optoma’s WHD200 wire­less HDMI trans­mit­ter. The HD27e weighs in at 2.8kg, mak­ing it easy to ac­com­mo­date or move around. The throw ra­tio is 1.47:1 -1.62:1.

“The new HD27e fea­tures ex­cep­tional colour ac­cu­racy to pro­duce true-to-life vi­su­als on a huge screen,” en­thuses prod­uct man­ager Kis­han Mistry. “The small chas­sis, sim­ple set up and in­te­grated speaker make this pro­jec­tor a good all-rounder.”

No word on Aus­tralian pric­ing but it re­tails in the UK for £599.
