Optoma GT720 DLP Projector Review
On the whole, it's a good projector, but if you're serious about gaming we'd recommend looking for something with a 720p or 1080p native resolution.
We're unclear if the Optoma GT720 supports 3D. DLP is easily fast enough to support the basic technical requirements of 3D, but it's not 3D-ready out of the box. This is the quote directly from the official product page:
"Optoma projectors cannot be used to display 3D TV broadcasts or 3D Blu-ray discs. Optoma projectors may support these applications in the future but will require additional hardware at extra cost" (http://www.optomausa.com/Product_detail.asp?productsubcat=27productcategory=Game+Timeproduct_id=479itemno=EPGT720>read entirety).
At the very least, you'll need to purchase active shutter glasses, which run up to $150 per pair. But for the glasses to work, you also need a transmitter that sends a sync signal from the projector, and there's no compatible package on the market right now that will work with the Optoma GT720.
