Review: Optoma HD8300 3D HD Projector Page 3

Bottom Line

There really isn’t much wrong with the Optoma HD8300. In fact, it does a lot of things quite right: extensive color adjustments, decent black level, excellent detail, RF 3D glasses. The HD8300’s problem comes from its outside competition. There are other excellent options in this price range, so “not bad” just doesn’t cut it here without a price cut.
