10 Reasons For
Optoma Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors
We calculated the average ratings for all Optoma data projectors and also specifically for Optoma 23000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors and found that in both cases Optoma had good ratings.
Just Released Eight Months Ago
This Optoma projector was released just eight months ago. Newer projectors like this one are likely to have more advanced features.
Supports 3D Image Projection
Like most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for the last year, the GT1070Xe supports 3D image projection.
We compared all the other data projectors which support 3D image projection to this data projector and we think the DELL 4350[plb_3143608_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
Supports Full HD Projection
Like most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the GT1070Xe, the Optoma GT1070Xe supports Full HD projection.
We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors which support Full HD projection and we think the DELL 4350[plb_3143608_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
Has a Built-In Speaker
The GT1070Xe has a built-in speaker. Most of the other projectors that have been on the market for the last year also have a built-in speaker.
There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available which you might want to look at including because of it's better review score, the DELL 4350[plb_3143608_price].
1080p (1920x1080) Native Projector Resolution
This multimedia projector has a native projector resolution of 1080p (1920x1080), which is the most frequently found native projector resolution on data projectors that were released in the last year.
+5 More reasons for
1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution
The GT1070Xe supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's 9% more resolution than a 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+) projector, which is the most common resolution supported by similar spec multimedia projectors that were launched in the last 12 months. In addition, this multimedia projector support graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA), 800 x 600 (SVGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA) and 1280 x 800 (WXGA) and 1360 x 768 (WXGA). Across all new multimedia projectors the worst resolution is 640 x 350 and the best is 3840 x 2160.
Very Big Offset
With an offset of 116 percent, the GT1070Xe has one of the biggest offsets amongst multimedia projectors of this age. Comparable spec data projectors that have been around for a similar time to the GT1070Xe have offsets of between 1.5% and 120%, and the average offset is 95%.
Data projectors that came out in the last year have weights of between 1.5kg and 27kg, and the average weight is 7.1kg. With a weight of only 2.7 kilograms, the GT1070Xe is one of the lighter newly released multimedia projectors amongst similar spec data projectors of this age.
Very Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode
Across all the comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been available for the last year the noise levels in economy mode range from 24dB to 36dB, and the average noise level in economy mode is 31dB. At only 26 decibels, the GT1070Xe has a quite quiet noise level in economy mode compared to most of the other projectors that have been available for around the same time as the GT1070Xe.
4 Reasons Against
Only 100V AC Input Voltage
This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many comparable spec data projectors that were released in the last year.
Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity
The GT1070Xe does not support WiFi connectivity, although this is within the context that most of the other comparable spec projectors that were released in the last 12 months also do not support WiFi connectivity.
There are a number of other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity which you might want to consider including the DELL M900HD[plb_3821033_price] which is also higher rated.
Quite Small Lamp Power
With a lamp power of only 190 Watts, the GT1070Xe has one of the smallest lamp power amongst similar spec multimedia projectors of this age. The average lamp power of data projectors that came out around the same time as the GT1070Xe is 250W.
Only One USB 2.0 Port
Most projectors that were launched around the same time as the GT1070Xe have between one and two USB 2.0 ports, including the GT1070Xe which has one USB 2.0 port.
+1 More reason against
2 Other reasons to consider the Optoma GT1070Xe
Average Projector Brightness
With a projector brightness of 2,800 ANSI lumens, the GT1070Xe has a pretty standard projector brightness compared to most of the other latest similar spec projectors.
If this 23000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to consider the Canon MW500[plb_3219179_price] (5,000 ANSI lumens).
Running Costs Are Average
The average running cost of the GT1070Xe is £79 over 1 year based on average energy prices and usage levels, which is typical compared to the other recently released 23000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors.

Total running cost over 5 years
Running costs for this projector have been estimated based on other similar projectors. If you know how much electricity and water the Optoma GT1070Xeuses then please let us know by entering those figures in the boxes above.
Running this projector over 5 years will generate 0.39 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2).
To offset that much CO2 you would need to plant 10 tree seedlings and grow them for 10 years.
