Optoma PT100 Video Projector Review
Don’t expect much from a $180 projector.
In this match-up, the Optoma is definitely the better value, assuming you don't care much about picture quality. If you demand quality and a high level of performance from your projector, however, the Canon is the clear choice. The Optoma isn't a professional-grade projector.
Blacks & Whites
The Canon is significantly brighter than the Optoma and has fewer problems with tunnel contrast.
Again, the $729.95 projector manages to solidly out-perform the $179.99 projector.
The PT100 loses a great deal of detail when objects are in motion. The Canon handles motion like a champ.
The Optoma has a set throw distance: there's no zoom to it, so you're pretty much stuck 13 feet away from the screen. The Canon LV-8310 has a 1.2x zoom, which gives it significantly more flexibility.
The Optoma has two options for video input. Two. And only one for audio input. The Canon is prepared for just about anything.
