Pilfering through the end user reports and reviews at AVSforums for this unit, we find very complimentary statements such as:
After spent a few hours playing with HD80 last night, all I can say is this is one hell of a projector! Highly recommended to anyone whose looking for a best image quality at a lowest possible price.
It is a very nice machine, I think almost everyone would be happy with it.
the picture is just gorgeous with great blacks. It looks good with minor adjustments.
I’d recommend the HD80 to anyone looking for a powerful projector with high resolution.
We watched some movies tonight that I thought would be so/so but not so on this projector. Things looks very good,
Right now I’d say this is the 1080p DLP to get.
I’d expect this PJ to be a huge seller for the videophile looking for a lower priced deal market.
I was quite impressed. It was VERY bright and VERY sharp. I didn’t notice anything wrong with the colour. It was well saturated, and primaries and secondaries seemed to be in the right place.
I am still looking for an in-depth pro review, as I don’t have my hands on one of these units yet, so stay tuned.
