Noise and Heat

While watching our favorite movie, we hardly noticed any sound coming out of this advanced machine and got to enjoy our favorite stuff in complete peace and calm.

Less noise and the low heating base are what makes this projector excel from its competition.

Although the Optoma hd142x projector comes with a built-in 10W speaker, which gives an impression of delivering loud music, it fails to do so.

In most cases, the sound produced by the speaker was not very clear and convincing; hence, one might consider buying an external speaker if they wish to gain perfect sound next time.


Affordable with promised quality, the Optoma hd142x projector is packed with an array of beautiful features where each characteristic stands out to make it even a better choice for people with a limited budget.

The black beauty may not be created to look appealing and friendly, but when it comes down to performance, it surely delivers bang on!
