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.

Optoma GT1080

 

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

 

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...

Cracking little projector

 

Had the projector for about 3 months now and couldn't be happier. Everyone who comes round is gobsmacked by the quality of the picture when you're watching in HD or Bluray. Compare the price of our (106") system with screen and soundbar to a good...

Great Projector with good imagery

 

I bought this product a month ago and still cant believe the quality of the output. I have linked it to a TV device and Blu-Ray 3D DVD Player. I don't have a screen, just a plain wall and find the TV and Video quality great. I have also found it too be...

I love it

 

I have only had it a few days but absolutely love it. Haven't put up a screen yet which I am yet to do. I have a very small room so have it not far from the wall which is around 1metre from the wall and I am getting round 100 inch of screen which is...
