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.

5Buy this projector NOW!
By Amazon Customer
This projector is amazing. Super easy to setup. I was hesitant on a projector since I have only ever bought tv's. I think this projector has a picture that matches or even exceeds my 4K set I purchased recently! Difference is I'm viewing on a much larger screen that the tv could ever give. It works great for movies, and is outstanding for games. I'm a huge gamer, I play a variety of consoles and everything I have thrown at this projector it handles like a champ. NES, SNES, N64, GameCube, PS1, PS3, PS4, Sega Genesis, Sega Saturn, Sega Dreamcast, Nintendo Switch, all work great. I have all of my legacy consoles running directly through an XRGB Mini which then goes into the HDMI port of the Optoma GT1080Darbee. A complete dream setup, I hardly leave my bedroom lately. If I had anything negative to say, the speakers are not very impressive. They are loud for my bedroom, but for a dedicated theatre room you will want to invest in a surround sound system or a soundbar. NO PROJECTOR is going to give you hi fi level sound from the projector speakers itself, it's not feasible or realistic, so that's really nothing to count against this projector. I'm projecting on a bare wall for now, no screen, still looks AMAZING! The input lag for gaming on this display is unrivaled. The image size was more adjustable and flexible than I imagine, exceeded my expectations in that regard as well. Darbee mode, if your gaming on a legacy console (something old school), it's not going to make any noticeable visual difference, but that's because there is only so much detail present to begin with. When in Darbee mode for something modern however such as PS4 or Nintendo Switch, the difference is VERY APPARENT! Darbee mode adds a considerable amount of detail to the picture that is easy to distinguish. Overall, I would say this is the best item I have spent money on possibly ever. The definition of a game changer. Expensive, but worth every damn penny! If I can upgrade my review later I will post some pics.
