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.
The Epson 705 HD is considerably cheaper than the Optoma GT720, but had bad enough color performance that we just can't recommend it for movies or HD gaming.
Blacks & Whites
The Optoma GT720 proved to be a lot brighter than the Epson 705 HD, but suffered from problems with maintaining a consistent black level.
The Epson 705 HD was not a strong color performer. What should have been smooth transitions in color gradients looked like a mess of color banding. It's simply not up to the task required of a decent home theater projector
The Epson 705 HD had more problems producing smooth motion than the Optoma GT720.
The Optoma GT720 has a very short throw distance and no zoom. The Epson 705 HD has a slightly longer thrown and a zoom lens that makes it a little more flexible.
The Epson 705 HD offers two USB ports that allow you to plug in USB storage devices. Otherwise, the AV inputs are the same as what you find on the Optoma GT720.
