A 1080p Gaming Projector
Rainbow artifacts. Although the GT1080 shows rainbow artifacts far less often than most DLP projectors, it would be ideal if it didn't show any.
3D motion artifacts. Much as with the occasional rainbow artifacts, the 3D-related motion artifacts aren't obvious enough to be annoying, but image quality would get higher marks if it didn't show any motion artifacts at all.
Posterization. The tendency to posterize video (as opposed to filmed) material in its brighter predefined modes makes the GT1080 less useful than it could be in the role of general purpose home-entertainment projector.
The Optoma GT1080's tendency to posterize live and recorded video with its brightest predefined modes may limit how bright an image you can use for video. However, the projector doesn't have the same problem with data images, filmed content, or games. And it delivers a constellation of features--including the short throw, capable audio system, and short lag time--that make it an attractive choice for its intended use. If you want a solid, portable projector for gaming with a robust on-board sound system, the Optoma GT1080 is an excellent value for only $749.
