5 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker

The DELL 4220 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other projectors of this spec and age also have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Two Built-In Speakers

The DELL 4220 has more built-in speakers than most of the data projectors of this age and spec. Most of the projectors that are a comparable age to the 4220 only have one built-in speaker, however this data projector has two built-in speakers.

Chart Edit

Two USB 2.0 Ports

Most 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the 4220 have between one and two USB 2.0 ports, including the DELL 4220 which has two USB 2.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Very Light

The weights of projectors of this spec and age range from 370g to 23kg. At only 2.9 kilograms, the DELL 4220 is quite light compared to most of the other projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Narrow

Across all the data projectors of this age and spec the widths range from 120mm to 540mm. With a width of only 278 millimeters, the DELL 4220 is one of the narrower similar spec multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago amongst similar spec projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

8 Reasons Against

DELL Data Projectors Only Have Unexceptional Reviews

We checked the reviews from owners and experts of hundreds of data projectors to determine an average rating for each projector manufacturer. On average multimedia projectors from DELL have unexceptional reviews from experts and owners.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most projectors that came out around the same time as the 4220 do not support Full HD projection. The DELL 4220 is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

There are a number of alternative projectors which also support Full HD projection which you might want to consider including the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector[plb_3156294_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The DELL 4220 does not support 3D image projection, although this is within the context that most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched around the same time as the 4220 also do not support 3D image projection.

Other data projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might also want to look at include the NEC U310W[plb_1531485_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The DELL 4220 does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the 4220 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 Epson PowerLite 1761W[plb_1735741_price], or the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro[plb_1759924_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Quite Short Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

Across all the multimedia projectors of this age and type the service life of lamp in economic mode range from 2,500h to 10,000h. The service life of lamp in economic mode of the DELL 4220 of only 2,500 hours is one of the shortest amongst comparable spec projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Very Short Lamp Service Life

Comparable spec multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the 4220 have lamp service lives of between 200h and 30,000h. With a lamp service life of only 2,000 hours, the DELL 4220 has a quite short lamp service life compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the 4220.

Chart Edit

Very Small Uniformity

At only 80 percent, the DELL 4220 has a fairly small uniformity compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that came out more than two years ago. 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the 4220 have uniformities of between 78% and 95%.

Chart Edit

Only One Audio in Port

Most 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched more than two years ago have between one and two audio in ports, including the DELL 4220 which has one audio in port.
