9 Reasons For

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

Just Released Four Months Ago

This 2000:1 contrast ratio projector has only been on the market for four months.

Good Connectivity

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The DELL 4220 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other new 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors.

We compared all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Hitachi CP-CX251N[plb_3690281_price], and the DELL 1850[plb_3307742_price] is also worth considering.

10 Reasons Against

DELL Only Has Unexceptional Multimedia Projector Reviews

We checked the user and expert reviews of hundreds of data projectors to determine an average rating for each projector manufacturer. On average projectors produced by DELL have unexceptional reviews from users and experts.

Poor 3D Picture Quality

Does Not Support 3D

Most similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the 4220 do not support 3D. The DELL 4220 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D.

It is worth also looking at alternative projectors which also support 3D including the DELL 1850[plb_3307742_price].
