Optoma H27 Projector Specifications First, the H27 projector comes with a decent manual (that means better than most). It has plenty of illustrations (especially the projector menus), and offers lots of brief explanations in addition to the basic “to change this…do that”. There are plenty of connections, with the HD15 computer port supporting both analog computer or component video. There is a port labeled DVI-D for digital, however it actually has a DVI-I connector. I am waiting to hear back from Optoma if it will support the “I”. DVI-I has a few extra pins, and if it is a true DVI-I, it can accept a computer analog signal or the digital one. In that case, it increases the options and would allow for example two component video inputs (handy if you don’t have a receiver with multiple inputs for component video), and a digital or analog computer signal, instead of just a digital computer option. Either way, it is better equipped than most entry level home theater projectors. Review continues below this advertisement. The projector draws a small amount of power whenever plugged in, enough so that the infra-red sensors are live and the unit can be powered up by the remote (or the switch on the top). Depending on the menu choice you select, the projector can remember the last source input used, and return to that one when you power up, or it can search all the inputs for the first live device it finds. Most people prefer to have it remember the last, instead of it slowly working its way through the more than half dozen possibilities. Give or take some minor tweaking of color, this Optoma projector produces a great image out of the box. A calibration disk like AVIA works fine to tune up the color, saturation, etc., and is highly recommended. Still, if you just plug it in and turn it on, it will please you. 1. Optoma H27 – Overview2.
