9 Reasons Against

DELL Data Projectors Only Have Unexceptional Reviews

DELL has excellent ratings for its 700:1 contrast ratio data projectors, however it has unexceptional average ratings when measured across its entire multimedia projector range.

Only 100V AC Input Voltage

This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most frequently found AC input voltage on similar spec projectors that were launched in the last year.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD

The DELL M900HD does not support full HD. Most of the other data projectors that were released in the last year do support full HD.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support full HD to this data projector and we think the Optoma HD142X ($539.00) is also worth considering.

Does Not Support 3D

Most new similar spec projectors do not support 3D. The DELL M900HD is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D.

There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors which also support 3D which you might want to consider including the Optoma HD142X ($539.00).

Very Dim Projector Brightness

Across all the comparable spec data projectors that were launched in the last year the projector brightnesss range from 500 ANSI lumens to 10,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,900 ANSI lumens. At only 900 ANSI lumens, the DELL M900HD has a quite dim projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the M900HD.

Multimedia projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might also be worth looking at include the Optoma HD142X ($539.00) (3,000 ANSI lumens).

Read more Less Chart Edit

Very Small Offset

Across all the recently released projectors the offsets range from 1.5% to 120%, and the average offset is 94%. With an offset of only 1.5 percent, the DELL M900HD has one of the smaller offsets amongst similar spec projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Low RMS Rated Power

Across all the comparable spec projectors that have been around for the last year the RMS rated powers range from 1W to 20W. At only 3 Watts, the DELL M900HD has a fairly low RMS rated power compared to most of the other projectors that were launched around the same time as the M900HD.

Chart Edit

Fairly Loud Noise Level (economic Mode)

The DELL M900HD has a quite loud noise level (economic mode) (34 decibels) compared to most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the M900HD. The noise level (economic mode)s of recently released comparable spec projectors range from 24dB to 36dB, and the average noise level (economic mode) is 31dB.
