5Bright, easy setup gaming projector
By Mitchell Bordelon
This is definitely one of my best purchases in the past year. I've never owned a projector before, but I wanted something for watching movies and gaming from my pc and PS4 and this projector is perfect for both. The projector has multiple modes, including one specifically for gaming. In all of the modes, the picture is super bright and crisp (from darbee enhancement).

Game mode:
With 16ms of latency, this isn't as fast as a gaming monitor but definitely one of the fastest projectors/tv setups for gaming. Color and brightness are not compromised in this faster response mode for the projector.

Short throw:
I'm amazed at the size of the screen this projector is able to make just over a couple of feet away. I bought a fixed projector screen of 100" to use with this projector, and I actually had to use the zoom out feature on the projector to make the size small enough to fit the screen from a bit over 4 feet away.

Currently, I have my projector sitting on a shelf under an ottoman bench so that the projector isn't out in the middle of the floor and so that my HDMI input cord from my computer can be tucked away nicely below the couch. I was worried I would have to have dangling cords out in the middle of the room, but since the projector is so small and can zoom out (decrease image size for throw distance) I was able to use this setup.

Projectors can get quite hot. I had to make sure to keep the projector in a spot with good airflow. However, the cooling fan is pretty quiet and I can't even hear it when I turn on surround sound.

Super easy to setup. Unbox it, put the batteries in the remote, plug the projector in, plug your computer/gaming system in, and turn the projector on. Then find the optimal spot for your projector based off of how large you want the screen to be (size chart in owners manual) and adjust the keystone and focus. Even if you mess with the other settings in the menu screen, this setup should take a maximum of 20 minutes.

Once you setup the projector the first time and figure out where it needs to be, you could easily pack the projector away and keep it out only when you need it. I also have a VR headset and I was worried about buying a TV and running into it with the headset on. With a projector, I can easily store the projector before turning the room into an open space for VR.

I definitely recommend this product if you have limited space and want to use it for gaming/movies.

5The menu options are well-organized and easy to use
By James Ng
Optoma GT1080 Darbee is a must have. This is our first projector TV because we wanted to use it for our playroom/media room. The setup was very simple... as simple as unpacking the unit, plugging it in and turning it on. There are several features that are not turned on by default: 1) the usb power feature to power the Roku stick; and 2) the Darbee feature. But the online manual is very helpful.

We haven't gotten the other components of the home theater (e.g. screen and sound system), but I was impressed about the clarify, sharpness, color even just projecting onto a pale yellow wall. They even have an option to select the background as a pale yellow wall. The menu options are well-organized and easy to use.

The short-throw is very good and projecting upwards so I didn't even have to make any keystone adjustments.

The sound quality is passable but somehow even at Level 1 on some movies is too loud.

Given the price point, quality and picture size, we are very happy with it.

5After some tinkering to get the screen and projector lined up perfect, I could not be more pleased at the ...
By joaquin martins
Let me first say that this is the first projector that I've ever owned. I've been building a "man cave" for a few months now and have added and deleted multiple different projectors in my Amazon Wish List during that time. I knew exactly what I was looking for; a clear picture that can handle some ambient light (walk out basement) and would fill up the Elite Screen AEON 150" that I mounted. I also .have about 20 feet total from the back wall to where the seating is to the screen so I wanted to make sure that the image would not be obstructed by those walking by which is why I opted for the short throw.

In short, I'm blown away at the clarity and color that this projector gives. After some tinkering to get the screen and projector lined up perfect, I could not be more pleased at the picture. The only cons that I had with this is the depth adjustment (its fixed so the mount needs to be perfect) and at times when changing channels it has to "think" and adjust. Both minor issues. Looking forward to watching some football soon!
