More On: HD39HDR GT1080HDR

The folks over at Optoma recently announced a couple of new gaming projectors among their lineup of new projectors that are now in stores.  The last time I was able to take a look at one of their gaming projectors a few years ago, I gave it an almost perfect score as it just checked off all the boxes for what a gamer would want in their home theater setup.

The new gaming projos are the HD39HDR and GT1080HDR, with both having an MSRP of ~$799 and including Optoma's Enhanced Gaming Mode.  Below are the write up on the projectors from Optoma:

Fast-Action, Free-for-All: Optoma HD39HDR

The Optoma HD39HDR projector offers a lag-free gaming experience with enhanced gaming mode to support up to a 120Hz refresh rate with a fast 8.4ms response time for a competitive gaming advantage. With 4K input and HDR10 color compatibility, high definition 1080p image resolution, and 4,000 lumens, the HD39HDR brings games and live action sports to life in a massive 140-inch image. An integrated 10-watt speaker brings crisp, loud audio and 1.3x zoom and built-in keystone correction delivers flexible installation options.  

Gamer’s Delight: Optoma GT1080HDR

The Optoma GT1080HDR is built for gamers, with a short throw for easy setup and mobility, 1080p HDR quality, 4K input compatibility and 3,800 lumens for ultra-bright performance in ambient light. In Enhanced Gaming Mode with a 120Hz refresh rate, the projector delivers an 8.4ms response time to ensure blur-free visuals with no lag. With a wide array of connectivity options, including HDMI 2.0 and VGA, along with a built-in 10-watt speaker, the GT1080HDR easily connects to a variety of gaming consoles, media players and additional entertainment sources. The Optoma GT1080HDR is the perfect game time companion.

The form factor of the cases doesn't appear to have changed a whole lot over the last five years, but I am looking forward to seeing how Optoma has evolved the performance of these units to keep up with the latest console generation.
