Customer Reviews

Pros: Great color out of the box.
Timothy Kurash
The picture is plenty bright even with the lights on but of course looks better with the lights off.
S. McGuire
All of that said, the 3D option is what makes this projector worth it in my opinion.

First impression
With out-of-box (factory) settings and connected to my macbook via HDMI cable watching an Avatar trailer the sound of "WOW" was echoing in our room.

Previously
Earlier today, I had returned a new Optoma pico projector (PK301) to Bestbuy after days and nights of viewing in diverse lighting conditions, PK301 just didn't work well due to too weak brightness (<50 lumens) whenever the room was not completely dark. My conclusion: current (relatively inexpensive) LED based projectors are not just yet up to the task until they are capable of performing over 1000 lumens.

Online research
I did a quick research and found many positive reviews on Optoma GT720. I also checked and compared to reviews of Optoma HD66 which I first intended to buy via Amazon; Bestbuy however had a $100 discount for this model so I bought it from them instead with no waiting time as a bonus.

Application
My primary purpose (application) was presentation of business material such as slides and movies at diverse conference and exhibition halls; my secondary application was for use at home: home office, movies and TV (cable box, bluray, Netflix etc.).

Details and summary
My usual set of criteria for projectors are resolution, brightness, connections, placement, noise. This model from Optoma meets all of them. It displays HD material with performance almost comparable to our 32' Sony Bravia 1080 LCD TV, Mix it then with a stellar brightness performance, connected via HDMI cable, placed very close (short throw) to the projection wall and throwing a gigantic-size display, performing in Standard brightness mode with yet very low level of audible noise.

Said things makes one smile when experiencing a sub $750 projector in year 2010. Bravo.

Awesome! I am happy with the projector, it has replaced my 60 incher that is now sitting in the corner. The picture quality is amazing, even with the lights on. Ive used it for hours while using my Xbox, and it stays the same temperature, and is quieter than the Xbox itself. From 12 feet away I have a 155in Screen. My place has become the place to watch everything at...BUY THIS IF YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT IT!

I was originally looking at plasma TVs to hook up to a Playstation 3 and cable box to watch football and baseball games in HD. However, I was really impressed with a $2500 projector a friend had bought, but that was way out of my price bracket. I saw the Optoma GT700 and thought for $650 I would get a projector that was a quarter as good, but for the same price as a 50 inch plasma screen. How wrong I was! This projector is almost as good as the top of the range models and makes even the largest plasma and LCD screens look poor. Set up is easy, I was playing games and watching HD TV on a 12 foot wall within 20 minutes of opening the box. You are only restricted by the size of the wall you can project on. It works reasonably well in lit conditions, but really comes into its own in the dark, it's just like being in the cinema, but the snacks are cheaper! The only problem is that once you start watching TV on this you won't want to watch it on your tiny 52inch screen anymore. If you are looking for a TV for your basement, this is the one.

I bought this item on Jan 25 2011 and started using in February. After 10 months, it started to appear strange white dots, on the projected visual... It first started with a single white dot, and quickly number of dots increased to an annoying number of 30-40 (and s still increasing). As a default reflex I contacted Optoma (in the UK - as I live in London). They simply responded they they can't help...

What a waste of money!

PS.It's good projector - when you first set up. But you can't use it with these white dots. And, as I researched online, that seems like a common problem - often associated with a very expensive chip flaw... Beware!

You will be surprised at the throw distance. From a very short distance, you can get a 120" screen overflowing.. Good and bad in a way. I live in an apartment and did not want to ceiling mount this. So table mounting was my only option. For a 120" 16:9 screen hanging from the very top end of the wall, you cannot seat the projector over 1 foot high from the floor. Very little zoom adjustment you can make so placement is very critical. Also there is no horizontal keystone, so kind of expect it to be placed in the dead center of the screen.
Other than for these, it simply blows your mind in the picture clarity. Also, since the throw distance is going to be very short, the intensity of the light projected is also not lost. This keeps the image bright even with significant ambient light (on a screen not ann unpainted wall) !!!!
Another nice thing is that this projector ships with its own carry bag.. Not a big deal but is something that can come in very handy.

I gave it five stars because of the the price and it being short throw. But it is missing some features that the non short trows have, witch might make them a better option for many people. It doesn't have a zoom lens or horizontal keystone. Which means the projector most be placed perfectly center and square of where the screen will be. The no zoom lens means you will have to place it at the perfect distance to make the size image for your screen. That all makes it more difficult to mount. You can't just throw it on a shelf at the back of the room, the short trow will have you throwing a 250" screen that far away. It has to be mounted in just the right spot in the middle of the ceiling, and the studs in the ceiling way not be on board with that plan. It's great for taking places and dropping it on a coffee table. If you want to mount it try Vantage Point CGUPM12 it's got a really adjustable arm, it worked for me. For the screen I went with a vinyl panel sold in home depots on the west coast only. It was highly raved about all over the internet cost 20 bucks and the perfect size for a just over 100 inch image. The SKU number is 174-278 just search that on home depots web page.
