The Everyone Projector
The Optoma PT105 is designed for anyone who wants to take their video games and movies with them. This projector is appropriate for a wide variety of purposes and especially attractive to first-time buyers who want an affordable and easy-to-use option. The slim and light design allows you to move this projector from the kids playroom (where the LED design and ease of use let it link readily to gaming systems) to the living room or back yard for a family movie night. For a home office or small business, this projector delivers a simple and cost-effective way to share presentations and slideshows.
The PT105 projects a 60-inch widescreen image onto a wall, screen or ceiling from as little as 10 feet away, connecting readily to a wide range of sources including:
- Video game consoles, such as Sony PS3, Nintendo Wii and Microsoft XBox
- Hand-held devices (such as tablets and smart phones)
- Blu-ray players
- Cable and satellite receivers
- Digital still and video cameras
LED Design Advantage
The PT105’s LED technology delivers low power consumption that is as little as 10 percent of what a 42-inch LCD television uses. The same LED technology provides vivid color, durability and long life that make it attractive to price-sensitive small business and consumer users.
The cost-effective LED light source has an estimated lifetime of more than 20,000 hours (equivalent to using the projector four hours every day for over thirteen years). LED is incredibly cost effective compared to lamp-based projectors.
The LED-based design, with low power usage and the elimination of mercury and other hazardous materials, allows for cool operation which in turn allows for the compact size.

Next I hooked up a PS3 using a 25ft Blue Rigger Hdmi cable purchased here. MW3 looked fantastic with no issues with dark color on the maps which lead me to beleive the problem with the XBOX 360 was the cable and not the projector. I also tested serveral Disney BluRays on the PS3 which looked fantastic as well.
Lastly I connected the projector to a Roku LT also purchased here and it looked fantastic as well streaming Amazon Instant Video and Crackle movies.
As for the other review stating a problem with the focus, I have had none, set it upon start up and it stayed in focus during use. As far as the other reviewer stating it not being HD, the native resolution is not however depending upon the connection it will upconvert the resolution up to 1080P. I suspect the problem with that reviewer was either the cable being used or improper setup of the resolution on the PC.
As a side note I have this projector projecting to a FAVI 72" 16:9 projector screen also purchased here. In conclusion this is a fantastic projector and is in my opinion well worth what it is selling for here on Amazon, I would have been happy if I paid twice as much. If your on the fence and realize this is not a top of the line HD projector, buy it you will not be dissappointed!
I am happy to say that this projector is great. We set it on the table about 8 feet from the wall. Doesn't get hot. It's easy to plug in to the computer, and we are more than happy with the picture clarity. My older kids even like to plug their tablets into it and play games on the wall. My 3 and 5 year olds like to plug their little dvd player into it and watch dora ...even during the day! I was surprised that it would have enough brightness to show up? (I don't know that I would be thrilled to watch it during the day, with shades open, but I must say that it was clear enough to watch Dora the Explorer. But, way cool in the minds of my little ones, let me tell you! And no fighting over "who gets to hold the dvd player". It does get a little out of focus periodically, but the kids jump up and fix that!
We do like how portable it is! It doesn't feel as fragile as our older projector. I would never take our other "expensive bulb projector" out of the movie room and into the kitchen for the toddler. NEVER. But, this little optoma seems much less breakable, (heck of a lot lighter, I'll tell you that!)
The speakers work...but not well. But, it does have the ability to plug in speakers. (which we have done, and it works just fine) I'm a bit irritated by the bunch of wires, so am currently waiting for Amazon to send me a wireless "thing of a jig" that will enable us to hear the movie on the pre wired speakers on our living room ceiling :) Dora is about to get loud!
love it. We are very happy with our Optoma.
Great product. Great price.
The picture, color, and brightness (75LM) is good enough for my taste. The sound from the unit is not bad either being a tiny little speaker. Picture is very clear even at about 14 feet from the wall. Native resolution is 854x480 good enough (Not HD but DVD quality. DVD is 720x480). Simple to use even without reading the manual.
No keystone adjustment (but for this price, I will use a taller stand) & No remote, so you cannot place it on a permanent mounted location.
Over all: I will recommend this product to my friends because of the Optima brand-DLP, the price (black Friday), and good enough performance for a new toy. Now I can do movie night at home with my family, not to mention my son is so exited to use it for his games.
I will do a follow up review after 6 months if I still feel the same.
I advice you all to refrain buying this product !!
