The DELL S510n has a fairly typical noise level (36 decibels) compared to most of the other 8000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the S510n.

Other multimedia projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the NEC V302H (35dB) which also has a higher rating.

The highest resolution of the DELL S510n is WXGA (1280x800). That's 51% less resolution than a 1080p (1920x1080) multimedia projector, which is the most frequently found resolution.

Chart Edit

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,100 ANSI lumens, the DELL S510n has a relatively typical projector brightness compared to most of the other data projectors of this spec and age.

We compared all the other 3,100 ANSI lumens brightness projectors to this multimedia projector and we think the DELL S510 ($1,074.99) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to consider the NEC M323H (3,200 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.
