I've been looking into making the move to a projector and these prices look awesome. Anyone with feedback on any specific models for a projector newbie?

I Love my GT1080 darbee short throw. Worth it at this price for sure. Looks great even on a wall but I made a screen and it looks better on a flat white surface. Gaming is acceptable with shorter refresh rates although not for serious gamers.

If you want an all purpose projector that works great with native 1080p this is great and the short throw is nice for limited space as well.

How does it look in a bright room (if you've used it in one)?

The tittle says Optima, is Optoma, just a misspelled word 👍🏼 Not sure if this affects the deal alerts

Looks great, its brighter than your average projector. If you check amazon lots of people put pictures up.

You can use it for afternoon movies outside without issue, I just wouldn't use it with direct sunlight mid day.

I used mine in my basement and it looked better then my old 1080p tv so really just depends on where and how you use it.

My setup was for 150" screen and still looked gorgeous.

Daaaaaaang. 150 inches? I thought I was all badass with my 95 inch screen.

Be mindful of where it will be mounted or shelved. I was looking into the GTDarbee before I realized I didn't want a short throw. I opted to get the HD29Darbee and I can only fill 95inches on my 100 inches screen and that's about 15 feet back. Mine is 3200 lumens which are okay during the day, but if you're anything like me, you'll use it primarily after dark. Also, the Darbee chip is pretty amazing. This was my first projector purchase, but I did quite of bit of research before deciding on the HD29Darbee. It was the best sub 1k projector I could find at the time (about a year ago). Also, be mindful that projectors produce a fair amount heat so careful with smaller rooms unless you want a heater. Due to the heat, some fans can get pretty loud on certain models which can be distracting for some people. Personally, I use the 3.5mm jack with an amplifier with my active noise cancellation Sony WH1000XM2 cans for a more custom and independent audio experience. Fan noise is no issue that way.

I also have an Optoma GR1080 Darbee. Bought it last year on sale thanks to slickdeals. Have it hooked up in the basement with a cheap 90" automatic screen. Absolutely love it.

We needed it to be a short throw and the timing on the deal was perfect. Wife was mad for like a minute but she absolutely loves it. The 3 year old loves "the biiig tv" too.

Who wouldn't want a short throw? Getting a larger screen with less distance and less chance of the image getting blocked by people walking in the room. Love my gt1080 Darbee for those reasons exactly.
