GT5000 1080p Ultra Short Throw Projector
Huge HD entertainment from 30cm away!
The GT5000 can achieve a stunning 100 inch display from just 30cm away from a completely flat wall or screen.
Live sporting events look superb. This is as close as you will get to having a cinema experience in your own home. For gamers, low latency (33ms) provides a responsive and accurate experience whilst high brightness makes gaming accessible in any room.
With an integrated 16 watt speaker, you get great sound right out of the box. The projector has not one, but two HDMI ports so set up is a breeze. You can even "smarten up" this projector by plugging in an HDMI dongle like the Optoma HDCast Pro, Google Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV Stick or Apple TV. Share photos, play games or even stream HD content to your huge screen in your own home.
Ultra Short Throw
Lengthy cables are a thing of the past. Being Ultra Short Throw you can place the projector very close to the wall which simplifies set up and installation time. This makes for a much cleaner look to your home, while still producing a 100 inch screen.
Full HD 1080p
1080p resolution provides you with a crystal clear picture. HD content without downscaling or compression gives an un-compromised level of detail; ideal for watching Blu-ray movies, HD broadcasting and playing video games.
Bright whites and super rich black levels give an added level of depth to your HD content. Text appears crisper and cleaner - ideal for education and business applications.
Running 3D content from almost any source including 3D Blu-ray players, 3D broadcasting and the latest generation games consoles is a breeze with the GT5000. Full support for 144Hz rapid refresh rate delivers an ultra-smooth flicker free image.
The GT5000 comes with specially designed lamp modes to increase efficiency and reduce power consumption by as much as 70%. Each mode benefits the lamp in a positive way and as a result lowers the total cost of ownership and reducing any maintenance.
If you happen to accidentally switch off the projector, this feature allows you to power it back up instantly.
Enjoy rich, vibrant colours under guarantee from Optoma for five years.

You will see it looks great.
To be clear this is not a TV replacement unless you like sitting in the dark, it is a cinema for your home and it genuinely gives that cinema experience. Two friends have seen it and both are considering buying. I paid just under one thousand pounds for my unit and I believe it is well worth it.
The projector has good brightness levels and is visible (though picture not great) even when it is daylight outside with poor curtains. The image is sharp and well focused, though sadly there is no zoom adjustment (not even a small range), so placement of the projector is absolutely key. The projector takes a good range of inputs and has wide range of configuration options, though I have not yet tested the 3D modes so cannot comment fully on all parts of the projector.
The way I see it is this projector is pretty hard to beat at its current price of ~£600, but if you suffer from rainbows then an LCD machine will be better if you can have a long throw. If you can't do a long throw then this is the projector to go for.
Please note: This review is biased because I am directly comparing it. Some of these points may not be as apparent without direct comparison.
I was expecting the difference between the ML750 and the Aukey to be great given the supposed difference in spec of 700 lumens and 15000:1 contrast ratio vs 200 and 1000:1. If anything this projector made me realise how good the Aukey actually was and how mediocre the Optoma is. I'll explain why:
- Focus: I simply could not get the Optoma as focussed as the Aukey. It's impossible, the lens really is worse quality or something. The focus isn't "bad" but the difference is immediately noticeable on text and faces.
- Contrast: Yes the contrast is definitely better, there is definitely more detail in the shadows and highlights, however, oddly, in the mid range the contrast of the Aukey seemed better, possibly due to the better focus.
- Hue: The Optoma has a green hue that I just could not get rid of. It's not major and I'm sure once you're used to it then it wouldn't be an issue, but stuff that is supposed to be white really does come out a sepia green.
- Adjustment: You get brightness and contrast, that's it! There are different modes that give you slightly different picture hues but "Bright" is useless, stuff comes out more green. Photo and PC mode do also allow you to change "White intensity" but I don't find whites to be that white so you want this on full anyway.Read more ›
Just got this projector 3 days ago and have watched 4 movies + using it for Youtube (chromecast) and web browsing.
For its price I can't really fault the picture quality, it is bright, sharp and accurate colours, no ghosting on fast action movies.
The built in speaker is not wonderful I don't really need it as I have my own.
I am using a pull up 80" screen, which means my screen is not fixed to a wall and requires a bit of adjustment to get the picture right, the setup is not difficult, placing it at the right distance between the projector (mine at around 0.8 meters and set negative zoom), do vertical keystone + image shift then its all good to go.
My only nag is that the remote doesnt have a quick key for image shift...
Overall I feel that it is a super good buy I am happy with, there are projectors out there with better features / quality but then you'll be spending 2 - 3 times more than this price. Can't wait to play my Nintendo Switch on the projector next week :)
