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...

very happy for the price and features

 

specifically researched this and very happy with the product. easy setup, nice quality. handles a 1080p signal nicely through my AV receiver. Does need a high quality cable if you need a long 10m stretch.

Fantastic Home Cinema 3D Projector

 

I bought this projector from Richard Sounds (great service as usual), back in August 2017 and so I have had plenty of time to play with it. I looked around for a couple of months at projectors below the £1000 mark. The Optima GT1080 Darbee was the only...

3D function is non existant

 

We do love the projector despite my review title. Had some great movie nights already and Star Wars looks brilliant. Picture is very good, instructions easy and glad we opted for short throw as we have options of move it about and it isn't permanent....

Excellent

 

I bought this projector a week ago. After the first day I did initially spend about 30 mins adjusting the settings. However I found out that it comes perfectly set up so I reset it to default. The 3D is excellent even with a pair of £8.00 battery...
