    Hi, im looking to get a projector for a spare room i have, nothing special just want it to play dvd's well and games. Just going to project onto a white wall, i was looking at the optoma HD65 which seemed good but just out of my price range, so what about this one?

    Optoma EP720 DLP Projector

    thanks

    It certainly will do the job, of projecting a picture. :thumbsup:

    However, with a lot of DLP data projectors the manufacturers introduce a "white segment" into the colour wheel. This introduction is great for data machines because it allows more white light to travel through the colour wheel, which in turn means a brighter image, 2000/3000 ANSI etc.

    The downside is that "white segment" will introduce a picture artefact called the "Rainbow Effect" RBE for short, which is a real no no in the home cinema projector world. Have a search on these forums for the “Rainbow Effect” :thumbsdow

    The EP720 has been upgraded to the EP720i.

    What is your budget if the HD65 is out of range?

    mmm yeah i have read about the rainbow effect. i was hoping to spend around £350-£400, cause it isnt going to be used all the time.
