Dell Computer 163TJ Dell 1610HD Projector Quick Review

9 Reasons For

Low Running Costs

The 1610HD is in the cheapest 10% of all 10 projectors of this spec and age that we have analysed for 1 year running costs. Based on typical usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the 1610HD is only £100.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The DELL 1610HD supports 3D image projection, unlike most of the other projectors that were released more than two years ago which do not support 3D image projection.

There are a number of alternative projectors which support 3D image projection currently available which you might want to look at including the DELL M410HD[plb_1413363_price], or the Acer P7215[plb_1440142_price] which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Unlike most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the 1610HD which do not have a built-in speaker, the DELL 1610HD has a built-in speaker.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including because of it's better review score, the DELL M410HD[plb_1413363_price].

The highest resolution of the DELL 1610HD is WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than the most common native projector resolution of XGA (1024x768).

A WXGA (1280x800) native projector resolution is actually the best resolution amongst all 2100:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Amongst comparable types of projector the worst resolution is XGA (1024x768).

The DELL 1610HD has a maximum native resolution of WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more native resolution than the most frequently found native resolution of XGA (1024x768). Across all projectors of a comparable spec and age to the 1610HD the native resolution ranges from SVGA (800x600) to 1080p (1920x1080).

Chart Edit

Very High RMS Rated Power

Comparable spec projectors that have been available for a similar time to the 1610HD have RMS rated power of between 1W and 8W. When compared to other 2100:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago, the RMS rated power of the DELL 1610HD of 8 Watts is one of the highest.

Chart Edit

Very Long Lamp Service Life

The lamp service life of the DELL 1610HD of 3,000 hours is one of the longest amongst comparable spec multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the 1610HD. The average lamp service life of projectors that are a comparable age to the 1610HD is 2,200h.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

At 4,000 hours, the DELL 1610HD has a fairly long service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other 2100:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out around the same time as the 1610HD. The average service life of lamp in economic mode of data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the 1610HD is 3,100h.

Chart Edit

Very Light

At only 2.4 kilograms, the DELL 1610HD is fairly light compared to most of the other projectors of this age and spec. The average weight of comparable spec data projectors that were released more than two years ago is 12kg, and the weights range from 1.1kg to 20kg.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

DELL Data Projectors Only Have Unexceptional Reviews

We checked 652 owner and expert reviews for DELL projectors and found that on average DELL has unexceptional ratings compared to other brands. We also found that DELL has unexceptional ratings specifically for its 2100:1 contrast ratio data projectors.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and type to the 1610HD, the DELL 1610HD does not support Full HD projection.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support Full HD projection including the PX800X[pl_3021061_price], or the PX700W[pl_3001393_price] both from NEC.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The DELL 1610HD does not support WiFi connectivity, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other 2100:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched more than two years ago also do not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this projector and we think the NEC PX700W[plb_3001393_price] is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Very High Power Consumption During PowerSave

With a power consumption during PowerSave of 15 Watts, the DELL 1610HD has one of the highest power consumption during PowerSave amongst comparable spec multimedia projectors of this age. Across all the data projectors of a similar age and spec to the 1610HD the power consumption during PowerSave range from 0.4W to 15W.

Chart Edit

2 Other reasons to consider the DELL 1610HD

Released Over Four Years Ago

It was over four years ago when DELL released the 1610HD.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,500 ANSI lumens, the DELL 1610HD has a relatively typical projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that have been available for more than two years.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to look at the Acer P7215[plb_1440142_price] (6,000 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.
