Yes or no, will the Optoma hd141x projector work in a bright room

by Jane on August 21, 2016

We received a question about the brightness output of the Optoma hd141x projector. Specifically, the person was curious to know is it bright enough to use in the daytime in a well lite room?

First we want to say we have used and reviewed this model and believe it provides superb value in its price range. This is one of the least expensive true “native” 1080p high definition resolution projectors you will currently find on the market in 2016.

Optoma HD141x projector for bright rooms

How bright is it?

To answer the question about brightness:

Obviously, the image quality of any projector will look better in a dark or dim room compared to a room that’s well-lite. This is why when we pay to watch a movie a movie at a movie theater the lights are turned down low when the movie starts.

The Optom HD141x projector has a lumen (brightness) rating of 3000 ANSI. This is a very good amount of rightness output.

With that said the question of whether or not this Optoma model will work in a very well lite room during the daytime with sunbeams entering though the windows is somewhat hard to answer. Of course it will work!

However, will it work good enough to satisfy your expectations is the real question mark.

When testing this projector we used it in a well-lite room, a dim room and also in the very dark environment of our basement. Overall, as should be expected with any projector, picture quality (especially, color and contrast levels) improves when going from a lighter to darker room environment.

Our overall opinion about using the Optoma hd141X is a well lite room is yes it can be used in this environment but you should expected a little wash in the color levels and decrease in contrast compared to when this model is used in a darker room environment.
