I just bought an Optoma GT1080 for my gaming/home theatre PC... the thing is bloody amazing, it is "short throw" so will project 100" at 3.5 feet away from the wall and 308" at 12 feet. That's about 13'7" high and 21'9" long. Apparently focus dips after that but at night (for bulb strength) with big, clear letters you might be able to get up to about 18 x 27ft or thereabouts still quite visible.

I know you don't care about 3D, but you'll probably end up with a 3D projector anyway since those are tuned for gaming.

For gaming, you're going to want a DLP projector (pick your artifacts, rainbows are better than ghosting for gaming) that's pretty bright, at least 2,000 lumens. This Optoma and this BenQ fit the bill.

Why not go for the Optoma GT1080 its the best choice I see right now.

u/God_Damnit_Vakidis · 2 pointsr/miamidolphins

I'm thinking about getting this projector for gaming/ Redzone! Anyone have any experience with projectors?

u/SeafoodDuder · 2 pointsr/projectors

There are 'short-throw' projectors that can throw a big screen like the Optoma GT1080.

There are smaller 'pico' projectors that can be used on small tripod meant for cameras, like the LG PH300. The further this projector is from the screen, the bigger the picture.

They're probably the two easiest ways I can think of. Getting one that needs to be close and getting one that can be attached to a small tripod.

Leaving somewhere now. I'll add more later. :)

Maybe i should mention these projectors have caught my eye, but wondering if i should look at additional models

Optoma HD141X main attraction is 1080 at cheap price

Viewsonic Pro9000 main attraction is laser means i dont have to change the bulb every year?

Optoma GT1080 main attraction is that it says its made for gaming

i know this is a wide range. looking for smarter people than me help narrow it down, or point to other models i should include in the shopping list

Optoma GT1080

you'll need to get a dvi to hdmi cable or adapter though as it only has 2 hdmi ports.

Yeah, I hear that. I don't blame you, especially because $200 can otherwise be spent on better speakers, or something. How is your audio setup?
I went to Amazon.com and found that they're selling the BenQ W1070 for $519.

Here are some other options, if your budget is in that $500-$700 range:

Optoma HD 142X

Optoma GT1080p

The one I picked up was the Epson Home Cinema 2045 (which I bought from Best Buy actually)

u/ForeverANinja · 1 pointr/gadgets

Hi everyone, I've been looking at getting a projector for a while now, and I'm extremely confused about specs and price ranges. Hoping you can clear it up for me some.

I would like to have one for gaming on my PC, as well as netflix and such. I have a fairly high end gaming rig that easily runs most games at 1080p/60fps on my monitor, and I want to be able to get the same results through a projector(60 Hz or better refresh rate).

I've looked around and found a number of different projectors at quite different price points. I am hoping to stay under $1000 Canadian.

Here are a few that I've found:

-Optoma HD27- $889 CAD

-Optoma HD142X- $779 CAD

-BenQ W1070- $1444 CAD

-Optoma GT1080- $787 CAD

-Epson 2040- $996 CAD

I see a lot of threads of people saying trying to get a good projector for under $1000 is not a good idea- can anyone help me out with these choices and tell me which one is best, and if I really need to spend more?

If you have any other suggestions besides the ones I've listed, please let me know! Thanks!
