Hi guys, dumb question here anybody here ever played online game connected to the projector? I planned to buy one to watch my favorite character on large screen, but I wonder if the projector can still maintain the game fps. Maybe you could share some of your experience here?

Hey.

Watching and playing on a projector should not have a different FPS at all, it should display just the same as it does on your PC. For watching it can be really fun for yourself or a group, but I'm not sure how playing will really feel when talking about DotA.

You can always try and experiment, good luck!

Yes, projectors have enough FPS to play games. They're made for watching movies after all.

I have played DOTA in university. TBH it was not that much fun. I had eye strain after few mins. All that glitters is not gold my friend :|

I don't think a projector will give you the colors and sharpness that you expect while gaming. It can give you fps but video quality will not be on par.
If Uma Therman were to seek vengence on Ping, the movie would be called Kill Ping.
