The Optoma GT720 Projector: You Know, for Gamers?The Optoma 1080p HD20 earned Bestmodo marks from us last year, but how well would the company's chops translate into the "gaming" space? Later this year, when the Game Time 720 (GT720) arrives, we should be able to tell you.

For now though, specs!

First of all, the "720" should give away the fact that this projector is meant for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Sorry, Wii. Second, the exact resolution is 1600 x 1200, with a 300-in max screen size. The projector is a bit bulky, but don't worry about that too much—there's a...backpack included too.

The Optoma GT720 Projector: You Know, for Gamers?Connections include HDMI, VGA, S-Video, Composite, Stero Audio-In and Out, and RS-232. If you have the correct glasses, you can also use stereoscopic 3D.

Price is known ($800), but due date is not. And, yeah, they kind of just slapped "Game" into a low-price projector, didn't they? Guess we'll see how well it handles the browns and greens of hardcore gaming FPS's in a little bit. [TV Snob via Technabob]
