January 2019

The Optoma HD39Darbee offers a wide zoom and with its Lens shift feature function it is much more easier to position it in the living room. Gamers will also enjoy the "gaming" image mode which primarily shortens the response time, allowing the projector to respond quickly according to your input. Overall this projectors price and peformance is very good.


November 2018

The Optoma HD39Darbee features a wide zoom range and the Lens shift makes it especially suitable for critical positioning in the living room, thanks to the preset gaming mode, even gamers will get their money's worth. Both the price and performance of the HD39Darbee are very good.

Digital Camera World
September 2018

This mid-range Full HD projector has Darbee Visual Presence processing built-in. For those not in the know, Darbee is used to give images extra bite or deepen colour saturation.

Essentially this enhancement lifts white highlights, gives contrasty edges more definition, and cleans up colour. Whether it’s of any genuine benefit is up for debate, but superficially the end result can look impressive.

Overall, we rate this a solid performer regardless. Beneath the lid is a standard 0.65-inch DMD chip. Tweaks to improve black level performance include Dynamic Black and variable Gamma.  

With 3,500 ANSI lumens peak brightness, the projector can be used in a reasonably bright room.

Overall, it’s quite the crowd pleaser.

May 2018

Best on test and T3 5 star platinum award.

Advanced picture processing enhances colour and sharpens fine detail on this high-performing beamer. The beautiful game has rarely looked prettier.

Goals win games, and in our three-way shootout, Optoma’s projector most often finds the back of the net. Keen value, a winning picture performance and the bonus of Darbee processing magic, make this a sports projector to shout about.

February 2018
The Optoma HD39Darbee is a high-value crowd-pleaser. It's not always possible to satisfy movie fans and gamers, but this model scores more than it misses.
Home Cinema Choice
November 2017

"Often with a bright, multi-purpose media-room style PJ there’s a level of compromise, be it in colour fidelity or operating noise. This Optoma gets the presentational balance about right.  It looks convincing with movies but is also a fast, colourful gaming display. And the compact form factor is very convenient."

HCC verdict:

"This entertaining all-purpose movie and games projector is cinematic when it needs to be, but offers low-lag gaming too. Darbee processing proves a welcome extra."

Great purchase!
Lester Wade, Somerset : United Kingdom, January 2019.Purchased from Richer Sounds
We've never had a projector and screen before but have been blessed with an extra room in a new house for use as a cinema/snug. I purchased the Optoma HD39 Darbee for its flexibility; ports on the side, in-built speaker and lens adjustment. It has not disappointed, it's been very easy to setup and get the picture centralised, the legs on the back are long (which has helped with angling from bookcase at back of the room), picture quality is brilliant and the on-board speakers, whilst in use temporarily, are actually sufficient! VERY happy with our purchase :) Next up, the soundsystem...
Sharp, Bright & Quiet

The HD39Darbee has been the perfect center piece for my home theater. My main concern was noise level during quiet moments in a movie. The this projector blast a bright and sharp picture with only a whisper from the fan. Now saving my pennies for the UHD60 4K model...🙂
