For those of you who are tired of going to the cinema and having your experience ruined by annoying adverts, noisy kids, or someone eating an endless packet of chips, your prayers have been answered.

Optoma have also boldly promised that the color quality of its projectors is able to last at least five years, a theory I'm more than happy to test out when we get this projector for review.
Press Release: Dubai, March 2013 – Optoma today announce the HD25, a Full HD home entertainment projector and successor to the best-selling HD23.
