Optoma's use of Darbee techology makes the GT1080Darbee a unique projector.
As a PC gamer, I am used to the crisp, sharp and detailed images of video games played on a quality gaming monitor.
I never thought that a projector would be to come close, but Darbee technology brings the detailed textures out of HD video and games.
This is the closest you will get to 4K without buying a very expensive projector.
Like any display hardware item, be prepared to spend considerable time calibrating the projector for perfect quality, colour and sharpness.
Very Bright and Clear
D. Welch, Virginia. Purchased from B&H Photo
I was surprised at how bright and clear the image is, even on a 110" screen. The setup menu is easy to use, and since there is a "Test Grid" feature, aligning and mounting the projector was not difficult. Very pleased with the purchase.
John Bowman, Reidsville, NC. Purchased from B&H Photo Video
This projector is awesome! The short throw makes it very portable and we have enjoyed using it on our back deck. The low input lag makes it great for playing video games. Highly recommended.
Luis Doria, Orlando, FL. Purchased from Newegg
The quality is amazing! I'm using it on a 120" screen and you can see the difference with darbee. The quality is clearer than other projectors. Short through works well on my limited space. I have not tried it on gaming since I have a full gaming pc & monitor set up but it's suppose to be good. I bought some 3D glasses and it gives it a true theater experience. Despite saying it's 4:3, it also does 16:9. There is a button to switch between the two.
Exceptional Speed and Quality for FPS Gaming
Sam Bocetta, Chicago . Purchased from Amazon.com
We tested 15 projectors to find the best choice for FPS specific gaming projectors and found the GT1080 Darbee to be one of the best choices for mid-range projectors.
The Optoma has a specialized gaming mode which allows for a more responsive time. Image quality is extremely sharp and provides very well balanced colors than a regular computer monitor.
Aspect ratio is also quite high making this a good choice for both indoor and outdoor gaming. Our tests were specific to outdoor gaming and the Darbee performed well having enough Lumens to provide an incredibly crisp image without any lag time even with 4 players.
This projector is also extremely quiet and did not produce much noise. Setup is simple and it's full compatible with a wide range of 3rd party media devices.

Replacing my TV
Jacob Zane , Concord, CA. Purchased from Amazon.com
After a long time searching, I stumbled on this projector. I was torn between Epson and Benq equivalents but I needed a short throw and something powerful enough to replace my TV. For the price point and features, this projector is hard to beat. There is a reason why it has stellar reviews because it lives up to its hype.
Reymundo Marquez, Bakersfield, CA.. Purchased from Best Buy
Awesome Projector. It really enhances the details in video games! Not only that but I was amazed at how bright the image is. It can be seen clearly even in a well lit room. Also, video's and movies look amazing...by far the best projector I've ever owned. I highly recommend this product.
