6 Reasons For

Expert Reviews Are Average

This projector received an expert rating of 70% from PC Mag.

Robust

One customer considered that the DELL 1210S was well made.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to the 1210S, the DELL 1210S has a built-in speaker.

There are a number of alternative projectors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might want to consider including the DELL S320 ($615.06) which is cheaper; or the Ricoh PJ WX2130 which has better reviews.

Quite Big Uniformity

The DELL 1210S has one of the bigger uniformities (90 percent) amongst data projectors of this age. The uniformities of multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the 1210S range from 80% to 120%, and the average uniformity is 85%.

Chart Edit

Wired Connectivity

This projector supports a Wired connectivity, which is the most commonly supported connectivity on similar spec projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Very Light

Across all the 2200:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the 1210S the weights range from 2.1kg to 8.6kg, and the average weight is 3.4kg. The DELL 1210S is one of the lighter multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the 1210S (only 2.4 kilograms) amongst projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

10 Reasons Against

Unexceptional Brand

Projectors built by DELL are fairly ok projectors according to average reviews from owners and experts.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most data projectors of this type and age do not support 3D image projection. The DELL 1210S is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D image projection.

Other multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might want to look at include the DELL S320 ($615.06).

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other 2200:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the 1210S, the DELL 1210S does not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The DELL 1210S does not support WiFi connectivity, although keep in mind that most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the 1210S also do not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a WiFi connectivity and we think the DELL S320 ($615.06) which is also cheaper is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Only SVGA (800x600) Native Projector Resolution

The DELL 1210S has a maximum resolution of SVGA (800x600). That's 53% less resolution than the most common native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800). Across all similar spec data projectors that are a comparable age to the 1210S the best resolution is DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) and the worst is VGA (640x480).

Chart Edit

Very Dim Projector Brightness

The DELL 1210S has one of the dimmer projector brightness (only 2,500 ANSI lumens) amongst 2200:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. 2200:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago have projector brightness of between 2,500 ANSI lumens and 4,500 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,100 ANSI lumens.

Multimedia projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth looking at include the DELL S320 ($615.06) (3,000 ANSI lumens and cheaper); or the Ricoh PJ WX2130 (2,800 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

Read more Less Chart Edit

Very Small Lamp Power

The lamp power of projectors of this type and age range from 180W to 330W. The DELL 1210S has a quite small lamp power (only 185 Watts) compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Only SVGA (800x600) Native Resolution

The biggest native resolution of the DELL 1210S is SVGA (800x600). That's 39% less native resolution than the most common native resolution of XGA (1024x768).

A SVGA (800x600) native resolution is actually the worst native resolution amongst all comparable spec data projectors that are a similar age to the 1210S.

A 1080p (1920x1080) native resolution is the best native resolution amongst comparable types of projector.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Very Low Number of Colours

At only 1.07 million, the DELL 1210S has a fairly low number of colours compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable type and age to the 1210S. The numbers of colours of 2200:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the 1210S range from 1M to 1,100M.

Chart Edit

Very Short Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

The shortest service life of lamp in economic mode of projectors of this type and age is 4,000h, the longest is 6,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 4,700h. At only 4,000 hours, the DELL 1210S has a quite short service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other 2200:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.
