Whether it's gaming, sports or movies, the Optoma HD142X lets you enjoy it all on the (very) big screen.

Plug and play for big screen entertainment

Light, compact and easy to set up, the Optoma HD142X is the ideal projector for special events, regular gaming, movie nights or even to take with you. Adaptable enough to show a huge 305" image (at 10 metres projection) right down to 28" at just 1 metre, the HD142X is flexible enough for all types of places and spaces. A built-in speaker means you don't even need extra sound equipment - although this will always provide a real boost to the sound.

Bright enough for all conditions
With an outstanding brightness figure of 3000 ANSI Lumens, the HD142X gives bright and vivid colours and can also be used at all times of the day. Even during daylight conditions with curtains or blinds open, the HD142X produces a watchable and detailed picture - something that isn't always the case with projectors.

Life-like images
Thanks to Optoma's Dynamic Black system, the HD142X produces an excellent contrast ratio of 23,000:1. By smoothly adjusting the lamp output for each frame, the HD142X is offers the darkest blacks alongside the brightest whites. The BrilliantColor processor uses six separate primary and secondary colours to produce excellent colour performance. It also increases colour brightness by up to 50% over other technologies, giving some of the most true-to-life images in its class.

Crystal clear detail from TI's DLP chip set
Using Texas Instrument's DLP technology, the Optoma HD142X gives crystal clear clarity, sharply defined images and true, natural colour. Even at larger screen sizes, the detail is astounding and would have once been exclusive to projectors costing many times more. The HD142X also projects 1080p Full HD images, making it the perfect match for your Blu-ray player or Full HD gaming device.

Keystone correction for simple installation
Making the HD142X a cinch to use is Keystone correction. Usually only available on more expensive projectors, this feature makes installation much simpler. With the ability to digitally shift the image by +/- 40 degrees in the vertical plain, the HD142X can be fitted in more awkward locations and also enables a wider choice of screen options.

Gaming Mode and 24p
To get the best from gaming, this projector features a special Gaming Mode. This optimises the projector's settings to give lightning fast response, maximum contrast and vivid colours, making gaming on the big screen even more involving. In addition, the HD142X is also 24P compatible, so replays films shot at 24 frames per second at the correct speed, without glitching - just like at the cinema.

Optional 3D
For an even more immersive picture, the HD142X is also ready for 3D. Just add the optional ZF2100 3D glasses system, connect up to a compatible source and enjoy 3D images that are every bit as bold as at the cinema. Rather than using infra-red, the HD142X uses a Radio Frequency system, which reduces the chance of interference and provides a higher contrast and brighter images. The optional glasses are fully rechargeable.

USB power
Thanks to the built-in USB power outlet you can also power your source device. Whether you're using a smart TV dongle, smartphone or tablet, the HD142X makes sure it's got all the power it needs for the duration of the show.

HDMI with MHL
With twin HDMI sockets, the HD142X is well equipped to handle digital sources. The HDMI interface is also compatible with MHL (Mobile High-Definition Link), enabling connection with a suitable smartphone or tablet to watch HD video, from your mobile device, on the big screen!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Optima HD142 Brought this to replace an Optima HD720 (720p) projector that was 8 years old. Excellent upgrade and fantastic service from Richer Sounds. The full HD resolution was a great improvement and the brightness levels are impressive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great first projector Have been thinking about buying a projector for a casual home cinema experience for ages. I worried that a 'cheap' projector wouldn't be that good and that I would wish I'd spent a bit more to get a better one... Boy was I wrong - the picture is stunning and everything we could hope. We plonk it on the coffee table and project on our wall and it still looks great. So glad we got this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great picture Replaced a older Optoma projector and am delighted with the picture, colours and ability to watch without closing blinds at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great budget projector I bought this as a replacement for an LED projector that I found to be unusable due to the fan noise. Through research I found the reviews of the Optoma to be favourable in this department- and they were right. There is hardly any noticeable noise from the projector even when placed just above your head , where mine is located. Picture quality and brightness is excellent even in a lit room and I currently get a 120” picture from a throw of about 3.5m. Overall this is a great projector and works brilliantly for a home cinema set up. Not been able to test the 3D capabilities yet but looking forward to doing so!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Value 3D Projector. We already had an Optoma HD141X that we bought 3 years ago and are very happy with it and so when we decided to buy a second projector an Optoma HD142X was the obvious choice for us. It was straightforward to set it up and the only annoyance was having to drill some different holes in the ceiling mount. Why don't manufacturers stick to a standard hole spacing? A great picture even at 90 inches and thank you to Richer Sounds for Excellent Service again and making such a good projector affordable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for money I've always wanted the home cinema experience and after quite a lot of research I opted for this one based on other customer reviews and the price. So far I have no complaints, the picture quality is great for my needs and is bright enough for daylight use with the curtains drawn. 3D quality is fantastic ! only issue was that my Samsung 3D glasses didn't work with this but I picked some cheap ones up from ebay which worked just fine
