10 Reasons For
A Top Selling Data Projector
The GT1080E is one the top selling projector currently available for sale.
Multimedia projectors produced by Optoma have good reviews on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all multimedia projectors (not just multimedia projectors) and found that Optoma also has good reviews across its entire range.
Unlike most of the other recently released similar spec projectors which do not support 3D, the Optoma GT1080E supports 3D.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the other projectors which support 3D currently available including the W341[pl_3452857_price], the W344[pl_3862632_price], or the W355[pl_3862720_price] all from Optoma which is cheaper.
Supports Full HD
The GT1080E supports full HD. Most of the other latest multimedia projectors do not support full HD.
Alternative projectors which support full HD currently available that you might want to look at include the Viewsonic PJD7720HD[plb_3416548_price] which has better reviews.
We compared all the other projectors which also support full HD to this data projector and we think the P1502[pl_3878311_price], or the P1502[pl_3999401_price] both from Acer is also worth considering.
Has a Built-In Speaker(s)
Like most of the other multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the GT1080E, the GT1080E has a built-in speaker(s).
There are a number of other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available that you might want to consider including the W341[pl_3452857_price], the W344[pl_3862632_price], or the W355[pl_3862720_price] all from Optoma which is cheaper.
1080p (1920x1080) Projector Native Resolution
This projector has a projector native resolution of 1080p (1920x1080), which is typical of many data projectors that have been on the market for the last year.
+5 More reasons for
1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Supported Graphics Resolutions
The highest resolution supported by the GT1080E is 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) multimedia projector, which is the most common resolution supported by multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the GT1080E. Across all recently released similar spec projectors the best resolution is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) and the worst is 640 x 480 (VGA).
Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp
The average service life of lamp of projectors that were released around the same time as the GT1080E is 6,900h. With a service life of lamp of 6,500 hours, the GT1080E has one of the longer service life of lamps amongst comparable spec multimedia projectors of this age.
Quite Big Offset
The GT1080E has one of the bigger offsets (116 percent) amongst projectors of this age. The smallest offset of multimedia projectors that were released in the last 12 months is 11%, the biggest is 150%, and the average offset is 110%.
Quite Quiet Noise Level (economic Mode)
With a noise level (economic mode) of only 26 decibels, the GT1080E has one of the quieter noise level (economic mode)s amongst comparable spec projectors of this age. Projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the GT1080E have noise level (economic mode)s of between 20dB and 37dB, and the average noise level (economic mode) is 29dB.
3 Reasons Against
Does Not Support Wi-Fi
Like most of the other latest comparable spec multimedia projectors, the GT1080E does not support wi-Fi.
Quite Dim Projector Brightness
Multimedia projectors that have been on the market for the last year have projector brightnesss of between 100 ANSI lumens and 8,000 ANSI lumens. At only 3,000 ANSI lumens, the GT1080E has a quite dim projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that were launched around the same time as the GT1080E.
Data projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might also be worth considering include the Optoma W344[plb_3862632_price] (3,100 ANSI lumens and cheaper) or the Viewsonic PJD7831HDL[plb_3755325_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens and higher rated).
Quite Small Bulb Power
With a bulb power of only 190 Watts, the Optoma GT1080E has one of the smallest bulb powers amongst multimedia projectors of this age. The smallest bulb power of multimedia projectors that were launched in the last year is 190W, the biggest is 470W, and the average bulb power is 270W.
