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.

Calibration

Unlike a TV, there's no single mode on a projector that's best for all types of situations. The Bright mode makes the most sense for presentations or times when color performance is not all that important. However, you're definitely going to want to use Cinema mode for movies and gaming, because the color performance in other modes is so egregiously bad.

Video Modes

There are several video modes on the Optoma GT720, which affect both brightness and color performance. It's easy to change modes, and we recommend you do so depending on the usage scenario.
