Has a Built-In Speaker

The DELL 4220 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the 4220 also have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The DELL 4220 has more VGA (D-Sub) ports than most of the recently released similar spec multimedia projectors. Most of the new 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports, however this multimedia projector has three VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Two USB 2.0 Ports

The DELL 4220 has more USB 2.0 ports than most of the comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for the last year. This data projector is a two USB 2.0 port data projector compared to most of the projectors that are a similar age to the 4220 which only have one USB 2.0 port.

12 Reasons Against

Unexceptional Brand

DELL is one of the middle of the road projector manufacturers according to average expert and owner review score data that we have collected for all multimedia projectors.

Poor 3D Picture Quality

One DELL 4220 reviewer reckoned that the product did not have a good 3D picture quality. Pc Mag mentioned on PC Mag “3D support is limited PCs equipped with quad-buffered”.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most new comparable spec projectors do not support Full HD projection. The DELL 4220 is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the Hitachi CP-CX251N[plb_3690281_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
