Digital Camera World
This mid-range Full HD projector has Darbee Visual Presence processing built-in. For those not in the know, Darbee is used to give images extra bite or deepen colour saturation.
Essentially this enhancement lifts white highlights, gives contrasty edges more definition, and cleans up colour. Whether it’s of any genuine benefit is up for debate, but superficially the end result can look impressive.
Overall, we rate this a solid performer regardless. Beneath the lid is a standard 0.65-inch DMD chip. Tweaks to improve black level performance include Dynamic Black and variable Gamma.
With 3,500 ANSI lumens peak brightness, the projector can be used in a reasonably bright room.
Overall, it’s quite the crowd pleaser.
Best on test and T3 5 star platinum award.
Advanced picture processing enhances colour and sharpens fine detail on this high-performing beamer. The beautiful game has rarely looked prettier.
Goals win games, and in our three-way shootout, Optoma’s projector most often finds the back of the net. Keen value, a winning picture performance and the bonus of Darbee processing magic, make this a sports projector to shout about.
The Optoma HD39Darbee is a high-value crowd-pleaser. It’s not always possible to satisfy movie fans and gamers, but this model scores more than it misses. It’s an effective gaming display, does a fine job with films and is bright enough to make your next sporting event a real social occasion.
But away from the microscope and under normal viewing conditions, it delivers more than the sum of its parts. If you like your eye candy particularly sweet, it’s definitely worth having on board.
For those interested in watching the Olympics or upcoming FIFA Cup, this is a darn good projector for sports too.
Home Cinema Choice
“Often with a bright, multi-purpose media-room style PJ there’s a level of compromise, be it in colour fidelity or operating noise. This Optoma gets the presentational balance about right. It looks convincing with movies but is also a fast, colourful gaming display. And the compact form factor is very convenient.”
“This entertaining all-purpose movie and games projector is cinematic when it needs to be, but offers low-lag gaming too. Darbee processing proves a welcome extra.”
