4Big thing in a small package...... Literally and figuratively.
By Spencer G.
I just received this item and I must say I am impressed at all fronts. First thing I noticed was how small and light the machine was when I picked up the box. I thought I had been sent the wrong item. Next I opened it up and the packaging was great. Mine came with the projector surrounded plastic bumpers that prevented any product movement, an HDMI cable, remote with batteries (2xAAA), power cable, the manual (digital and paper), as well as a carry bag and a lens cover already attached. I turned it on. The device gets warmer than other machines I have used however I've never had anything else make such a large screen from so close. My first time owning a short throw. I guess the size/weight is from being DLP, I've owned an LCD that this is replacing and a few pocket/micro LED projectors. So this seems to be a great combination of low maintenance plus extreme performance. Color is great, sound is more than I was expecting. I might still use speakers just more to get a good base in there. The carry case it came with was adequate sized and not the highest quality. However it is usable and I likely won't be replacing it and plan on using it. It holds everything the device came with along with several video adapters and a 6 outlet surge protector plus a VGA and DVI cable. IT still closed fine no issues with the zipper breaking.
Now I must say I enjoy the projector thus far and I will update this post if anything changes. Please keep that in mind as you read on.
The remote light is nice however I would like if there was a way to shut this off. I don't want the battery to die just from the light, the remote is not needed as the on device controls are adequate and I do not plan on mounting this any time soon.
At first I couldn't find the setting to change the device into the low power mode. I would like to compare the output vs lamp life and make my decision on what power setting to use. I have yet to check the manual at all.
My third and I think final issue. This projector has HDMI inputs ONLY! Unless the mini USB is also an input. (EDIT) The mini USB is for firmware updates. I could not find any newer firmware for this model. It is fairly new so that could be why. EDIT) I thought the full USB (USB standard or USB-A) on it would allow for a simple file browser to play stuff off of a flash drive or external harddrive. (EDIT The USB is for a 5Vx1A power. EDIT) The device description has USB Power listed under inputs. This made me think it acted as an input. Once again I used the machine for like 5 min to just test it when it arrived. Overall I am still impressed. This is a great machine especially for under $1000. When I get my screen I may post a picture with my full setup.

5Excellent for Small Spaces
By Anthony
I bought this along with a portable projector screen to watch movies and TV in my small living room. I bought this projector because the short throw makes it easier to place in a small space, as well as the positive reviews. I also don't have space on the wall behind my couch to place a projector, so I needed something that could go in front of the couch instead. I can set this projector up right in front of my ottoman a few inches off the floor, and it projects a 100" screen that's about 8.5' from my eyes. This means the projector is not visible at all while watching from the couch. It works perfectly in my space.

The difference between the GT1080 and the GT1080 Darbee models is that the Darbee model adds video post-processing that makes some details hidden by shadows a little more clear. It's most noticeable in facial details. For example, without Darbee a person's face might look fairly smooth, while enabling Darbee brings out more variances in complexion and details like wrinkles. It makes the image look like a slightly higher definition than 1080p. For the $100 extra it's a nice addition, but it's definitely not necessary.

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!
