First, Pete - our new gaming blogger has shipped me the GT720 so I can do the full review. He's done for now. Pete reports he played a range of different types of games on it, with great success, and has much to report, which he's already posted in his Art of Gaming blog
. His blog still isn't well known, and a bit harder to find than mine, so this is just a:
"Hello, and a Reminder" - to go read Pete's commentary about how the Optoma GT720 does as a serious and not so serious gaming projector. Let's just say that Pete - who's been gaming using his old Epson 6500UB, was most impressed. Check out his GT720 comments!
Pete, btw, is such a gamer... He took the projector right out of the box, hooked it up, adjusted nothing, and started gaming. He's not a projector hobbyist - he's a gamer. (We all know how some of us get carried away with the projector's performance almost forgetting to watch the movie on occasion...)
I haven't yet hooked up my own Wii, since the move last fall. I expect I'll break out the Wii Sports, and maybe even Carbon Canyon for my PS3, just to see how it does from a lightweight's standpoint. (Hey my favorite game is still RISK!) But mostly I'll be filling out the rest of the review - how the GT720 does overall - movies, sports, etc.
