Back in 2007 Optoma released the HD80 1080p projector. It’s initial price was a whopping $3,000 (USD), but actually it was one of the cheapest in its class. Think about that for a moment. Now think of the quality and size of a $1,000 HDTV nowadays. Think about that for a moment. Now get a load of this: Optoma’s new HD20 projector is capable of displaying full 1080p with a maximum display size of 120″ (diagonally, of course). That’s 10 freakin’ feet of HD for the price of a 42″ HDTV! Then again, I already revealed everything in the title. Dammit.
The 6.4 lbs. HD20 has two HDMI inputs, as well as VGA, component and composite video inputs, and it supports a boatload of video and computer formats. It has 1,700 ANSI lumens of brightness, with an estimated lamp life of 4,000 hours in standby mode and 3,000 hours in bright mode.
The HD20 ships early this Fall and is available for pre-order over on Amazon now.
