When using the Optoma GT1080Darbee, video gaming quality really is enhanced. Whether you are using a console (Xbox, PlayStation, or Nintendo) or a PC, you can really feel the difference between using this projector as compared to using standard projectors that are not meant for gaming. It even performs just as well or even better than television screens. However, it still is not as quick to react as most monitors designed for an immersive video gaming experience. Nevertheless, it ranks on top in terms of what projectors offer.
What makes the GT1080Darbee a cut above the rest is its 16ms Enhanced Gaming Mode, which aims to improve response times so that you can stay on top whenever you are playing games online. You can make sure that the video will always keep up well with every push of a button on your controller or keyboard.
Aside from its quick-response features, the GT1080Darbee also improves the overall quality of video games or movies. You will really notice how much better the textures and the colors are. Skin tones are improved and you can also see that the images are enhanced almost to their peak levels. It also specializes in delivering great black colors whenever you are playing survival horror games.
Even when used about nine feet away from the surface, the picture still seems so clear and bright. In that sense, it is so bright that you do not even have to use it in the dark for you to see the clear image quality. And, of course, you will have a theater-like experience when viewing movies in the dark. The picture and video quality simply amaze us even in the worst of lighting conditions.
While projectors are quite known to produce a lot of heat, this one tends to last quite a while before it gets too hot as long as you place it in a location with good airflow. Its cooling fan also tends to stay quiet and does not make a lot of noticeable noise that can distract your gaming or movie experience.
