The HD27e replaces Optoma's HD27, and the company claims the new machine delivers brighter images, quieter running and longer lamp-life (up to 12,000 hours) than the outgoing model.
£600 (or perhaps a little less) buys a Full HD 1080p resolution, a maximum image size of 301in, native 16:9 aspect ratio, a stated contrast ratio of 25,000:1 and 3D compatibility.
Inputs are a pair of HDMI 1.4a sockets (one of which is MHL ready for your smartphone or tablet), and outputs include a 3.5mm audio out, 12V trigger and a USB-A power out to make connecting a Chromecast dongle (or similar) straightforward.
The HD27e, which weighs a little under 3kg, also features a single speaker driven by 10 watts of power. It's on sale from today.
