Optoma GT750 3D Game Projector Review

Optoma GT750 - Overall Color & Picture Quality

This Optoma projector does everything one could expect from an under $800 projector. Well, almost. When you consider you get 3D, and a ton of brightness, that’s a great start. Color in the case of the GT750 is pretty good, right out of the box.

Color, and overall picture, should be just dandy for the type of folks who have never adjusted the color on their LCDTVs, with the only real downside for this class of projector, being the black levels, which are not as good as some other entry level priced projectors, and none of them are very good.

All these images were taken at the same exposure to show relative brightess differences.

Much brighter, and pushed greens, as is so typical of the brightest mode on many projectors.

A mix of additional images to show off the Optoma GT750 projector’s abilities:

And here are a few assorted, additional images, some of which can be found on other recent reviews:

Optoma GT720 Projector: Performance, HDTV and Sports

All the football images were taken with all the rear recessed lights on, and the rear window shutters partially/mostly open. While my room is very good at keeping the lights off of the screen, the window ambient light does lighten the visible blacks.

Optoma GT750 Projector: Bottom Line on HDTV and Sports

Simply stated, the GT750 is one of the brightest home projectors to visit us. It also has reasonable picture quality in its brightest mode. Oh, definitely not as accurate or pleasing in its best mode (which is still brighter than the average projector’s best mode), but it can get the job done, when others can’t. I missed having 1080 resolution a bit, but got by just fine one whole Sunday with DirecTV and football and fantasy football. No sweat. This is really a fine little projector for general TV viewing as well as sports.

This image gives you an idea about how the back of my room looks when these images were taken.

The shutters on each of the windows are actually about halfway closed, but in the exposure are barely visible at all.

With well over 2000 lumens in its brightest mode, it can handle a respectable amount of ambient light and still do a fine job on generally bright content like sports. Just don’t get carried away with the lighting.

3D brightness was respectable watching an assortment of digital content including the X-games, some college football, Revealing China and other “Discovery HD type content”, concerts, and more. I did all my HDTV viewing at just under 100″ diagonal.
