Optoma Has Good Reviews for Its Data Projectors
23000:1 contrast ratio data projectors produced by Optoma have good reviews on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all data projectors (not just 23000:1 contrast ratio data projectors) and found that Optoma also has good reviews across its entire range.
Price Drop of £88.00
The GT1070Xe has dropped in price by £88.00 in the last 59 days.
The Optoma GT1070Xe supports 3D, which is unusual. Most of the other comparable spec projectors that were launched in the last 12 months do not support 3D.
We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors which support 3D and we think because of it's better review score, the Optoma HD142X[plb_3807775_price] is also worth considering.
We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D to this projector and we think the Acer H7550BDZ[plb_3583921_price] is also worth considering.
Supports Full HD
The Optoma GT1070Xe supports full HD, as do most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the GT1070Xe.
There are a number of alternative data projectors which support full HD currently available which you might want to look at including a cheaper projector such as the DELL 1550[plb_3708760_price] or you might consider a better rated projector such as the Optoma HD142X[plb_3807775_price].
We compared all the other projectors which also support full HD to this data projector and we think the Acer H7550BDZ[plb_3583921_price] is also worth considering.
Has a Built-In Speaker(s)
The GT1070Xe has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other similar spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the GT1070Xe.
There are a number of other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available that you might also want to look at including cheaper projectors such as the Epson EB-530S[plb_3357330_price], or the DELL 1550[plb_3708760_price].
It is worth considering alternative data projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Acer H7550BDZ[plb_3583921_price].
1080p (1920x1080) Projector Native Resolution
The GT1070Xe has a maximum resolution of 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of a XGA (1024x768) data projector, which is the most frequently found resolution. Across all recently released projectors the resolution ranges from WVGA (854x480) to DCI 4K (4096 x 2160).

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions
This data projector supports a supported graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA)|800 x 600 (SVGA)|1280 x 1024 (SXGA)|1280 x 800 (WXGA)|1360 x 768 (WXGA)|1600 x 1200 (UXGA), which is typical of many recently released data projectors.
Quite Long Service Life of Lamp
The GT1070Xe has a fairly long service life of lamp (5,000 hours) compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the GT1070Xe. The average service life of lamp of multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the GT1070Xe is 6,500h, and the service life of lamps range from 1,500h to 30,000h.
Very Big Offset
With an offset of 116 percent, the GT1070Xe has a very big offset compared to most of the other recently released comparable spec data projectors. The offsets of latest similar spec multimedia projectors range from 1.5% to 120%.
The average weight of similar spec multimedia projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the GT1070Xe is 8.9kg. At only 2.7 kilograms, the GT1070Xe is fairly light compared to most of the other recently released similar spec projectors.
Very Quiet Noise Level (economic Mode)
Across all the comparable spec projectors that have been around for around the same time as the GT1070Xe the noise level (economic mode)s range from 24dB to 36dB, and the average noise level (economic mode) is 31dB. With a noise level (economic mode) of only 26 decibels, the GT1070Xe has one of the quieter noise level (economic mode)s amongst data projectors of this age.
4 Reasons Against
Only 100V AC Input Voltage
This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many latest comparable spec projectors.
Does Not Support Wi-Fi
The Optoma GT1070Xe does not support wi-Fi, although keep in mind that most of the other projectors that were released in the last year also do not support wi-Fi.
Very Small Bulb Power
At only 190 Watts, the GT1070Xe has a fairly small bulb power compared to most of the other latest similar spec projectors. The average bulb power of new comparable spec data projectors is 270W, and the bulb powers range from 190W to 740W.
Only One USB 2.0 Ports Quantity
The Optoma GT1070Xe is a one USB 2.0 ports quantity multimedia projector. Most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for the last year have one USB 2.0 ports quantity.

3 Other reasons to consider the Optoma GT1070Xe
Running Costs Are OK
The GT1070Xe is typical compared to the other multimedia projectors that were launched in the last 12 months that we have analysed for running costs. Based on typical energy prices, we estimate the GT1070Xe will cost £79 over 1 year to run.
Released Ten Months Ago
This projector was released ten months ago.
Average Projector Brightness
At 2,800 ANSI lumens, the GT1070Xe has a pretty average projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that have been on the market for the last year.
If this multimedia projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to look at the Epson EB-530S[plb_3357330_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens and cheaper).

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.
