Dell 1210S Projector - Honest Review 2014

5 Reasons For

Expert Reviews Are Average

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

Robust

One DELL 1210S reviewer who purchased it thought it was well made.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The DELL 1210S has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other data projectors of this age and spec.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including a cheaper multimedia projector such as the DELL S320 ($529.99) or you might consider a higher rated multimedia projector such as the Ricoh PJ WX2130.

Very Big Uniformity

The uniformitys of comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to the 1210S range from 65% to 90%, and the average uniformity is 80%. When compared to other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and spec to the 1210S, the DELL 1210S's uniformity of 90 percent is one of the biggest.

Chart Edit

Wired Connectivity Technology

This projector supports a Wired connectivity technology, which is the most commonly supported connectivity technology on projectors of a comparable type and age to it.

11 Reasons Against

Unexceptional Brand

DELL is one of the unexceptional projector brands according to average user and expert review score data that we have collected for all projectors.

Does Not Support 3D

The DELL 1210S does not support 3D, although it is worth noting that most of the other 2200:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for a similar time to the 1210S also do not support 3D.

There are a number of other data projectors which also support 3D which you might also want to consider including the DELL S320 ($529.99) which is also cheaper.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD

The DELL 1210S does not support full HD, although keep in mind that most of the other data projectors of this type and age also do not support full HD.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been available for more than two years do not support wi-Fi. The DELL 1210S is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support wi-Fi including the DELL S320 ($529.99) which is also cheaper.

Only SVGA (800x600) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the DELL 1210S is SVGA (800x600). That's 53% less resolution than a WXGA (1280x800) data projector, which is the most common resolution. The best resolution of all data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the 1210S is DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) and the worst is VGA (640x480).

Chart Edit

Very Dim Projector Brightness

At only 2,500 ANSI lumens, the DELL 1210S has a quite dim projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the 1210S. The average projector brightness of 2200:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago is 3,000 ANSI lumens.

If this projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to consider the Ricoh PJ WX2130 (2,800 ANSI lumens and higher rated) or the DELL S320 ($529.99) (3,000 ANSI lumens and cheaper).

Read more Less Chart Edit

Very Small Bulb Power

The average bulb power of comparable spec multimedia projectors that were launched more than two years ago is 220W, and the bulb powers range from 180W to 330W. At only 185 Watts, the DELL 1210S has a quite small bulb power compared to most of the other projectors of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Very Low Number of Colours

The DELL 1210S has one of the lower numbers of colours (only 1.07 million) amongst projectors of this age. The numbers of colours of data projectors of a comparable age and type to the 1210S range from 1M to 1,100M.

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 across all similar spec multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the 1210S.

The best native resolution across comparable types of data projector is 1080p (1920x1080).

Very Short Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

At only 4,000 hours, the DELL 1210S has a quite short service life of lamp (economic mode) compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the 1210S. The average service life of lamp (economic mode) of 2200:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago is 4,700h, and the service life of lamp (economic mode)s range from 4,000h to 6,000h.

Chart Edit

Very Low RMS Rated Power

The lowest RMS rated power of similar spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the 1210S is 2W and the highest is 10W. The DELL 1210S has one of the lower RMS rated powers (only 2 Watts) amongst 2200:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age.
