Optoma HD142X


Active Member
Hi folks,

Just purchased my first projector and I am never good with messing around with the settings.

Are there any pointers or setting you can advise?

I can't find anyone who has posted any up for the 142x, do you think the 141x settings would be a place to start or could they be way off?

Any help much appropriated.

It's been ages since I have posted anything, think it's time to update my signature.

How good is the projector?

TBH I don't have anything to compare it to. I am at 92" sitting around 3m away. And the quality looks good but I would say on the limit for needing 4K. Colours look good and everything else. My screen is a little curled at the edges tho and that's detracting a little from the viewing experience.

I may add a little weight to the bottom of it, see if that helps.

Calibrate it to a setting from the anyone of the HD141x from a forum or YouTube video and see for yourself what you like. You can use the THX app also for settings. Does decent enough for a start. I have gt1080 and love it. Quality projector for the price for sure. The 142 lamp life is amazing
