Optoma GT1080

 

The Optoma GT1080 projector offers a short lag time, a bright image, 3D support for HDMI connections, and 1080p resolution to match the resolution of the newest crop of game systems.

Designed for gaming. Short lag time. 1080p native resolution. Short throw. 3D with HDMI.

Displays rainbow artifacts. Shows posterization in its brightest mode.

If you're planning to set up your projector in a room where you don't need a short-throw lens to avoid shadows, you can save some money by getting the Optoma HD26, which offers a similar design and capabilities—including a short lag time—but with a...

Optoma GT1080Darbee

 

Optoma's £780 GT1080Darbee is unique in the projector world for its combined focus on video-gaming and high-level video processing – two features that don't go together at all.

Will this gaming projector give you an edge?

Low input lag ; Plenty of picture customisation ; Decent value

Yellow can become rather dominant ; Better black levels can be found elsewhere ; No optical zoom or image shift

Our main setup tips – beyond definitely using the Gaming preset for gaming! – are that you set the dynamic contrast feature on, and leave Brilliant Colour set to no higher than two or three to limit noise and keep tones looking balanced and natural....

Optoma GT1080 review

 

A gaming projector with a good short game, but lacking in fundamentals

1080p ; 3D ready ; 15ms response rate ; Decent port selection

Super short range ; Excessive heat and noise ; Imperfect audio ; Poor daytime performance

The GT1080 works best as a short-throw, 1080p gaming projector. Move it away from the wall or use it for the center of your home theater system, however, and you'll be disappointed. The GT1080 works best as a short-throw 1080p projector that, taking...

The Optoma GT1080's short throw makes it a versatile big-screen TV substitute

Optoma GT1080

 

As stated above, it isn't silent. However, I have the projector on a table in front of my couch and I can only barely hear it when the room is silent. When watching a movie or playing games I can't hear it. The addition of a third HDMI would be nice,...

It has a nice bright picture that's easily seen during the day in my living room. The HDMI ports have low input lag so playing my Xbox One on it is great. While it is the loudest piece of equipment in my living room it is still fairly quiet. I can't...

Only two HDMI ports, no optical audio output. Lens shift would be nice

Excellent projector for a first time buyer.

 

I bought this projector after initially intending to purchase the Optoma HD141X, which is a couple hundred cheaper, but decided to splurge when I saw that this projector advertised a contrast ratio 25% higher. The throw distance is variable without...

0 zoom functionality. You can change the aspect ratio to set sizes but a slider or knob for fine tuning your screen size would be much appreciated, and even the instruction booklet it comes with says that there is one, but alas, online I discovered...
