Optoma PT100 Video Projector Review
Don’t expect much from a $180 projector.
- Looks attractive.
- Feels a bit cheap.
- Plasticky construction.
The Optoma PT100 has two movable legs. The front leg is locked in position and can only extend if the button on the projector's left side is pressed. The back leg can be turned like a screw to extend or retract.
Try as we might, we couldn't access the projector's lamp. Once this thing burns out, you're out of luck.
Remote Control Tour
The projector doesn't come with a remote control.
In the Box
In the box you'll find the projector, manuals, and an analog A/V cable.
The projector doesn't weigh a lot and isn't very big. It doesn't come with a backpack like the GT720 (Optoma GameTime GT720 Review), but it's still fairly portable.
There isn't much to do to set up this projector. Just put it on the table, fiddle with the legs until you have a reasonably straight image, and plug in all applicable cables. There isn't any assembly required.
The PT100 isn't the most gorgeous projector we've seen, but it does have a fairly nice facade. While it does look a bit plasticky if you examine it too closely, and its light weight certainly portrays a kind of cheapness, the unit itself doesn't look too bad.
