Lets Break Down the Main Points:

Without mentioning its gaming capabilities, lets talk about how this projector performs its basic functions. Watching movies on Blu- Ray, the quality can be seen right away. This is way better than your HDTV for sure. Images are more vivid, bring when they should be and dim when appropriate. All this functionality transforms beautifully into gaming.

The Optoma GT1080 does a wonderful job in displaying 2D high definition images in a typical darkened room with impressive color blend resistant picture quality. So with the Optoma GT1080 every time is  Movie or Game time.

With its sturdy light output, this machine can also project a good looking image in a room that is not totally dark, however you might sacrifice on the black level and contrast performance slightly, and we do mean slightly.

As for  business meetings and classroom presentations, where rooms are not as ideally dark as they could be, we can still see the image, whether gaming or watching movies with great quality and standard.

3D Quality

It is very important to note that 3D glasses will not come with the Optoma GT1080 and they must be bought separately for viewing in 3D.

Using both 3D Blu-ray disc movies and running the depth (high quality option on the projector), The Optoma GT1080  delivers a striking approach to 3D images but sometimes delivers a slight bit of glare and motion blurring, although customers seem to believe this goes unnoticed.

Audio Performance

The Optoma GT1080 includes a 10-watt mono amplifier and is incorporated with a loud speaker which means you don’t have to attach a separate cable for an audio system. The audio system provides adequate sound quality and clear voices but takes in both high and low frequency.

Taking all the above prospects into consideration, The Optoma GT1080 is a good choice as an affordable option to get the most value out of a gaming projector. It is especially useful if you have a tight space and can’t really find the space to fit a regular projector.
