Conclusion

The Optoma PT100 isn't one of the better projectors we've reviewed, performance-wise. It's lamp outputs barely any light, and even in a dimly-lit room you'll find its image looks washed out. The PT100 didn't put up great numbers on any of our picture quality tests, but we also don't fault it for its performance. Most of the projectors we've reviewed so far are more than three times as expensive as the PT100. The PT100 isn't for business reps making a presentation or cinephiles who need the best picture quality. It's meant to be a cheap, portable projector, and it succeeds on those counts. If you're just looking for an inexpensive way to get a big image, the PT100 will meet your needs.
