Engadget Summary

Not everyone will need a projector in their house, but if you're building a home theater room on a budget, the Optoma HD25 should be at the top of your list. In use, Digital Versus found "the Optoma HD25 gave a natural image with faithful colours." Trusted Reviews was equally impressed with the performance of the HD25, saying HD sources "look detailed and clean, and there’s impressively little judder, loss of resolution or additional noise when showing motion." You wouldn't want to rely entirely on the HD25's speakers, but in a pinch they'll do just fine as What Hi-Fi thought the "speakers sound punchy in comparison to its rivals at this price level." While it may only include two HDMI ports, the performance for the price is hard to beat.
