8 Reasons For for Choosing the DELL S500WI

Bigger Bulb Power

DELL S500WI is 280W lamp power (as does the Optoma W307), but the Epson BrightLink Pro 1410Wi is only a 215W lamp power projector (65W smaller), the Smart UF75W is only a 230W lamp power projector (50W smaller) and the Sony VPL-SW536C is only a 210W lamp power projector (70W smaller). More ...

'Bulb Power' denotes how powerful the bulb in the projector is, measured in watts (W).

A more powerful bulb means that the projector will be seen clearer, and can project to surfaces father away without appearing too dark.

3D

The DELL S500WI supports 3D (as do the Optoma W307 and the Smart UF75W), but the Epson BrightLink Pro 1410Wi and the Sony VPL-SW536C do not support this feature. More ...

3D compatible projectors are able to display 3D content. Most projectors will require you to wear special glasses in order to view the 3D effect.

A 3D projector allows you to view the huge range of 3D films and content that is now available.

Wi-Fi

The DELL S500WI supports Wi-Fi, and so does the Epson BrightLink Pro 1410Wi, whereas the Optoma W307, the Smart UF75W and the Sony VPL-SW536C do not. More ...

Wi-Fi projectors can connect to your local WiFi network which means that you display content from other devices connected to the same network.

Wi-Fi projectors allow you display content from other devices connected to the same network without the need to use a cable.

Built-in Speaker

The DELL S500WI has a built-in speaker, and so do the Epson BrightLink Pro 1410Wi, the Optoma W307 and the Sony VPL-SW536C, whereas the Smart UF75W does not. More ...

A projector with built in speakers is able to play sound as well as display images.

Built in speakers mean that you don't need a separate amplifier to play sound with the projector image.

Better Kagoo Score

The DELL S500WI has received a Kagoo Score of 74, however the Epson BrightLink Pro 1410Wi scored 70 and the Smart UF75W scored only 61.

One More Award

The DELL S500WI has received 1 award from an expert review site, whereas the Optoma W307 has received no awards, the Smart UF75W has received no awards and the Sony VPL-SW536C has received no awards.

Considerably Better Expert Reviews

The DELL S500WI has an average expert review score of 80% based on 4 reviews, however the Epson BrightLink Pro 1410Wi has an average rating of 65% (based on 3 reviews).

Better PC Mag Review Score

PC Mag gave the DELL S500WI a review score of 80%, whereas the rating of the Epson BrightLink Pro 1410Wi was only 70% from the same site.

9 Reasons Against for Choosing the DELL S500WI

Only 1280 X 800 (WXGA) Resolution

The DELL S500WI has a projector native resolution of 1280 x 800 (WXGA) (as are the Epson BrightLink Pro 1410Wi, the Optoma W307 and the Smart UF75W), but the Sony VPL-SW536C has a projector native resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). More ...

The projector native resolution is the resolution of image that the projector is able to produce. The resolution is expressed as the number of horizontal pixels by the number of vertical pixels.

A projector with a higher native resolution will be able to display more detailed images such as HD content.

Louder Noise Level

The DELL S500WI is a 36dB projector, and so does the Smart UF75W. That's 1dB louder than the Epson BrightLink Pro 1410Wi, the Optoma W307 and the Sony VPL-SW536C (35dB). More ...

The noise level of the projector is the amount of noise that the projector makes (caused by the cooling fan inside the projector) when it is running.

A lower noise level means that the projector will be quieter when it is running. This means that you will be able to appreciate the quieter parts of films better without the background noise of the projector running. Most projectors have a noise level between 30 and 40Db, which rates them as 'very quiet' by Industial Noise Control - on par with low bird calls, or a quiet rural area. You can find more information here: http://www.industrialnoisecontrol.com/comparative-noise-examples.htm.

Lower Contrast Ratio

The DELL S500WI has a low (2300:1) contrast ratio, and so are the Epson BrightLink Pro 1410Wi, the Smart UF75W and the Sony VPL-SW536C, which is half as high contrast ratio as the Optoma W307 (high). More ...

The contrast ratio is the ratio between the brightness of the brightest white and the brightness of darkest black that the projector can produce.

A higher contrast ratio means that the projector can produce images with greater contrast so that they will appear more vivid.

Vastly Dimmer Projector Brightness

The DELL S500WI has a projector brightness of 3 ANSI lumens, however the Epson BrightLink Pro 1410Wi and the Sony VPL-SW536C are both 3,100 ANSI Lumens brightness projectors (100 ANSI lumens dimmer), the Optoma W307 is a 3,500 ANSI Lumens brightness projector (300 ANSI lumens brighter) and the Smart UF75W is a 2,500 ANSI Lumens brightness projector (700 ANSI lumens dimmer). More ...

'Projector Brightness' is how bright the bulb in the projector is, measured in 'lumens'.

A brighter bulb means that the projector will be seen clearer, and can project to surfaces father away without appearing too dark.

1,000h Shorter Service Life of Lamp

The DELL S500WI is a 2h lamp service life projector (as does the Smart UF75W), whereas the Epson BrightLink Pro 1410Wi is a 3,500h lamp service life projector (1,000h longer) and the Optoma W307 and the Sony VPL-SW536C are both 3,000h lamp service life projectors (500h longer). More ...

'Service Life' indicates how long the lamp in the projector will last before it needs to be replaced, measured in hours.

A longer life lamp means you'll need to replace it far less frequently, saving you money.

More Expensive by $25

The DELL S500WI is $25 more expensive than the Smart UF75W.

Older by Over One Year

The DELL S500WI is one month older than the Epson BrightLink Pro 1410Wi, five months older than the Optoma W307, 14 months older than the Smart UF75W and 13 months older than the Sony VPL-SW536C.

Higher Running Costs Over Five Years by $79

The running costs of the DELL S500WI are $139 which is $79 more than the Sony VPL-SW536C over five years. Show assumptions.

Worse Brand

DELL projectors have an average rating of only 80.9%, whereas Epson has an average rating of 95%, Optoma has an average rating of 91% and Sony has an average rating of 93.2%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the S500WI in the US is $445.00 but in total we found only 1 price for it.
