Projector Central reviews the Optoma HD33

Optoma HD33 3D Projector

The Optoma HD33 3D projector is causing quite a stir in the bargain-priced 1080p 3D market. Projector Central breaks down the features of this $1500 gem in their recent review.

“This is the first 1080p 3D projector to break the $3000 mark, let alone the $1500 mark, and that in itself is worth getting excited about. Add to that the HD33’s solid 2D performance, great color, radio-frequency glasses, and virtual absence of crosstalk and you’ve got a projector that is a solid value at twice the price.” – Projector Central

Available just in time for football season, we rate the Optoma HD33 as a first-string playmaker for a practice squad price!

Blu-ray calibration disc reviews:


Here’s what the critics say:

“Introduced at the CEDIA show in September, the WOW discs are by far the most extensively comprehensive calibration discs yet offered, in terms of their ability to effectively coach consumers through the process of understanding various video and audio adjustments, as well as providing a wealth of pristine source material that could only come from a media giant such as Disney.” – The AVGuide
“I begrudgingly admit this disc is fantastic.” – The HD Guru (dude, cheer up!)
“WOW: World of Wonder … sets the bar for calibration suites ” – blu-ray.com

Blu-ray calibration disc tips for optimal results:


  • Make the tweaks in the same viewing environment in which you would use your projector
  • The labels for controls used in the instructions may be different from the names used in the menus on your projector. Please refer to your owner’s manual if you have any questions (or call a Projector Expert!)

Panasonic PT-AE4000U : In Stock and Ready to Ship!

PTAE4000Udeliveryday2
[ First shipment of Panasonic PT-AE4000U’s are here! ]

If you aren’t already following us on Twitter, or Facebook, then you may not know that our first shipment of the new Panasonic PT-AE4000U has just arrived!

We’ve got a couple truckloads full of them, so we are happy to report that all of our customers who pre-ordered their AE4000U should have theirs on the way to them before the end of the week – aka today or tomorrow.

One of our Facebook fans is already planning his first movie night with new J.J. Abrams Star Trek movie (available November 17th on Blu-Ray and DVD)!

If you don’t already know about the new Panasonic PT-AE4000U, then we have some stuff for you to read. Just a few weeks ago we didn’t even know if it would be available in the U.S. Then, we found out it would be coming here, and we dropped the price on the old AE3000U and sold through our remaining inventory in short order.

Also popular, the Epson Home Cinema 8500 UB and the BenQ W6000, can be compared here. Also, we had a Panasonic representative here a few weeks ago, here’s some not so good video of her AE4000U presentation.

Alright, so now you are up to speed on the Panasonic PT-AE4000U. Now all you have to do is wait a few days for yours to roll in – or upgrade your shipping ASAP and have it for Halloween.

And just for fun… here is some video of the unloading – because we have iPhones, a Flickr account (we won’t bother YouTube with this one), and are very excited


[ The first truck this morning, almost unloaded ]

Spring Break Projector Sale

Free Shipping : Price Breaks

March Madness is over – the month, not the tournament – but our madness continues! It’s not anger madness, but a happy kind of kinetic excitement that forces us to continually offer our customers the best deals. Or, you could just call it marketing madness. So, get ready to enjoy free shipping and price drops on some of our most popular projectors for home and office all April long.

Savings Times Two

Firstly, we have added more discounted home theater projectors to our already hefty supply of discounted business machines on our special blowout page. These are either instant discounts off of our advertised price, or already very competitively priced deals.

Secondly, we are going to offer free shipping on all of our in stock projectors*. Usually we only offer free shipping on projectors over $999, but now we are extending that deal to our less expensive inventory as well. That’s good news for the bargain hunter, and refreshing start to the long awaited Spring.

* We have the majority of our discounted inventory in stock now, but there may be a few items that run out over the course of the sale. Our inventory is real time, so if your projector says “In Stock” it should be available. If your projector is out of stock, it is most likely on order. Call a Projector Expert to secure your projector and free shipping when it arrives.
