On average Optoma 23000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors have good ratings as do all projectors manufactured by Optoma.
The GT1070Xe supports 3D, which is unusual. Most of the other data projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the GT1070Xe do not support 3D.
We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support 3D to this projector and we think the DELL 1550[plb_3708760_price] is also worth considering.
Supports Full HD
The GT1070Xe supports full HD. Most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for the last year do not support full HD.
We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support full HD including the DELL 1550[plb_3708760_price].
Has a Built-In Speaker(s)
Like most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the GT1070Xe, the Optoma GT1070Xe has a built-in speaker(s).
It may also be worth considering one of the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including cheaper multimedia projectors such as the Epson EB-530S[plb_3357330_price].
Alternative data projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) that you might want to consider include the DELL 1550[plb_3708760_price].
1080p (1920x1080) Projector Native Resolution
The highest resolution of the Optoma GT1070Xe is 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of a XGA (1024x768) data projector, which is the most frequently found resolution. The worst resolution of all new data projectors is WVGA (854x480) and the best is DCI 4K (4096 x 2160).
1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions
The GT1070Xe supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over four times the resolution of the most frequently found supported graphics resolutions of 800 x 600 (SVGA) (which is also supported by this projector). In addition, this Optoma projector support supported graphics resolutionss of 640 x 480 (VGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA) and 1280 x 800 (WXGA) and 1360 x 768 (WXGA). The resolution of all similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the GT1070Xe ranges from 640 x 350 (worst) to 3840 x 2160 (best).
+5 More reasons for
Quite Long Service Life of Lamp
At 5,000 hours, the GT1070Xe has a quite long service life of lamp compared to most of the other recently released data projectors. The service life of lamps of new similar spec projectors range from 1,500h to 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp is 6,500h.
Very Big Offset
With an offset of 116 percent, the GT1070Xe has a very big offset compared to most of the other projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the GT1070Xe. The offsets of newly released comparable spec projectors range from 1.5% to 120%.
The average weight of data projectors that were launched in the last year is 9.1kg, and the weights range from 1.5kg to 28kg. With a weight of only 2.7 kilograms, the GT1070Xe is one of the lighter newly released projectors amongst projectors of this age.
Very Quiet Noise Level (economic Mode)
At only 26 decibels, the GT1070Xe has a fairly quiet noise level (economic mode) compared to most of the other data projectors that came out around the same time as the GT1070Xe. The noise level (economic mode)s of projectors that are a comparable age to the GT1070Xe range from 24dB to 36dB.
4 Reasons Against
Only 100V AC Input Voltage
This multimedia projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many similar spec multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as it.
Does Not Support Wi-Fi
Most recently released multimedia projectors do not support wi-Fi. The GT1070Xe is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.
Very Small Bulb Power
Across all the new comparable spec projectors the bulb powers range from 190W to 740W. The Optoma GT1070Xe has one of the smaller bulb powers (only 190 Watts) amongst projectors of this age.
Only One USB 2.0 Ports Quantity
The Optoma GT1070Xe is a one USB 2.0 ports quantity data projector.

Average Projector Brightness
At 2,800 ANSI lumens, the Optoma GT1070Xe has a relatively average projector brightness compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the GT1070Xe.
Projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth considering include the Epson EB-530S[plb_3357330_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens and cheaper).

Total running cost over 5 years
Running costs for this projector have been estimated based on other similar projectors. If you know how much electricity and water the Optoma GT1070Xeuses then please let us know by entering those figures in the boxes above.
Running this projector over 5 years will generate 0.39 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2).
To offset that much CO2 you would need to plant 10 tree seedlings and grow them for 10 years.
