The Optoma GT720 is the first home projector we've reviewed that really wasn't designed first and foremost, as either a projector for watching TV and movies, or a business projector. Rather, the GT720 has been designed and marketed as a projector optimized for gaming. No, I'm not talking about beating the Vegas odds, though, no doubt there are plenty of gambling sites you can play on while using the GT720. No, the GT720 is about Angry Birds, SIMS, World of Warcraft, Mario, Doom, Wii Sports and more. Optoma considers the GT720 small and light enough to be a "take it with you" projector. It comes out of the box packed in its backpack!
We're a bit late, I must confess. The GT720 has been around a good year at the time of this writing. The GT720 gaming projector is a $699 projector, very nicely priced for the gaming market it would seem. Shortly, Optoma will release the GT750, and we're going to review that one quickly as it becomes available.
