Optoma PT100 Video Projector Review
Don’t expect much from a $180 projector.
The Optoma HD66 is definitely the better projector in terms of performance and overall capability, but with a $600 price tag, it's certainly not for everyone. If you want to try out a projector, but don't want the purchase to leave you destitute, the Optoma PT100 is definitely a better entry-level option.
Blacks & Whites
The HD66 is significantly brighter and does a better job maintaining its black level. The PT100 is very, very dim and we wouldn't recommend using it in anything but a completely darkened room.
The HD66 has much more accurate color performance overall.
The PT100 had some issues with its motion performance: moving objects lost a great deal of detail. The HD66 didn't have the best performance in this area, but it certainly outclassed the PT100.
