Question Optoma HD200x / HD20 Upgrade with no rainbow effect?


Active Member
I have had my Optoma HD200x (same as more common Optoma HD20) for a few months now on my first projector setup and absolutely love it!


I realise now I am very sensitive to the rainbow effect that this projector is known to have.

What else can I buy at around same price point (used) that won't have the issue?
I also need to mount the projector in the same place so throw distance important.

My only other need is a similarly high quality 1080P picture with HDMI input.

Any thoughts?

Any views on a non rainbow inducing projector?

last try for some feedback - someone must have an opinion!
or is it as simple as avoid DLP altogether?

RBE is a common side effect of all single chip DLP projectors. Your best option might be to go for an LCD model, and if it's second hand, maybe something like an Epson 5200/5210 might be worth looking at.
