Our Verdict

A good all-round projector with the added bonus of being portable


  • Carry case and speakers
  • Good colours


  • Some evidence of compression
  • Speakers

It's refreshing to find that Optoma has racked its brains and come up with a delightful little product that includes everything you need to create an HD cinema in a truly portable package.

The GT-7000 projector itself is a compact 720p DLP unit. It's a thoroughly competent pint-sized beamer, with decent black levels and lovely colours, even if there's some evidence of compression in our test scales.

The really clever bit comes with the single-piece portable speaker kit and rucksack carrying case, which comes as part of the package.

The speakers are hardly audiophile-friendly, but they produce acceptable sound and slip into the compact carry case along with the projector. Simply add a laptop and the job's a good 'un.



Technology and cars. Increasingly the twain shall meet. Which is handy, because Jeremy (Twitter) is addicted to both. Long-time tech journalist, former editor of iCar magazine and incumbent car guru for T3 magazine, Jeremy reckons in-car technology is about to go thermonuclear. No, not exploding cars. That would be silly. And dangerous. But rather an explosive period of unprecedented innovation. Enjoy the ride.
