Dell 1210S Projector - Honest Review 2014

7 Reasons For

Average Expert Reviews

This DELL data projector received a rating of 70 out of 100 from expert review website PC Mag.

Reasonably Priced

Some DELL 1210S reviewers wrote in their reviews that it was good value for money. Sheggae wrote four years ago “Fairly Priced Projector” in their review but despite that they only gave this projector a score of 3 stars. Sheggae also said “Projectors vary enormously in price, details and description”. Sheggae also said “However this projector proved value for money as I believe it is worth considerably more”.

One customer who purchased it considered that it was cheap. Pcmag.com mentioned on expert review site PC Mag “The Dell 1210S is a solid, low-priced alternative to an XGA or WXGA portable business projector, though it lacks most of the bells”.

Robust

One person wrote in their reviews that the product was well made.

Price Has Dropped by £96.16

In the last 15 days the price of the 1210S has dropped by £96.16.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and type to the 1210S, the DELL 1210S has a built-in speaker(s).

There are a number of other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available that you might want to look at including the Ricoh PJ WX2130[plb_2418243_price] which has better reviews; or the DELL S320[plb_1538836_price] which is cheaper.

Very Big Uniformity

The average uniformity of 2200:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than two years ago is 80%. When compared to other multimedia projectors of this spec and age, the uniformity of the DELL 1210S of 90 percent is one of the biggest.

Chart Edit

Wired Connectivity Technology

This projector supports a Wired connectivity technology, which is typical of many data projectors of a similar age and spec to it.

Chart Edit

12 Reasons Against

DELL Only Has Unexceptional Data Projector Reviews

DELL 2200:1 contrast ratio projectors have unexceptional ratings on average and across all data projectors DELL is one of the mediocre brands.

Does Not Support 3D

Like most of the other data projectors of this spec and age, the DELL 1210S does not support 3D.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a 3D and we think the DELL S320[plb_1538836_price] is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD

The DELL 1210S does not support full HD. Most of the other 2200:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a similar time to the 1210S also do not support full HD.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other data projectors of a similar type and age to the 1210S, the DELL 1210S does not support wi-Fi.

Alternative projectors which also support wi-Fi that you might want to consider include the DELL S320[plb_1538836_price] which is also cheaper.

Only SVGA (800x600) Projector Native Resolution

The DELL 1210S has a maximum resolution of SVGA (800x600). That's 53% less resolution than the most frequently found projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800). Across all multimedia projectors of this type and age the worst resolution is VGA (640x480) and the best is DCI 4K (4096 x 2160).

Chart Edit

Very Dim Projector Brightness

The DELL 1210S has one of the dimmer projector brightnesss (only 2,500 ANSI lumens) amongst comparable spec projectors of this age. The average projector brightness of projectors that have been on the market for more than two years is 3,000 ANSI lumens, and the projector brightnesss range from 2,500 ANSI lumens to 4,500 ANSI lumens.

If you would prefer a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to consider the DELL S320[plb_1538836_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens and cheaper) or the Ricoh PJ WX2130[plb_2418243_price] (2,800 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

Very Small Bulb Power

The smallest bulb power of multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the 1210S is 180W and the biggest is 330W. The DELL 1210S has one of the smaller bulb powers (only 185 Watts) amongst 2200:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Low Number of Colours

The numbers of colours of projectors that came out more than two years ago range from 1M to 1,100M, and the average number of colours is 430M. With a number of colours of only 1.07 million, the DELL 1210S has one of the lower numbers of colours amongst projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Only SVGA (800x600) Native Resolution

The biggest native resolution of the DELL 1210S is SVGA (800x600). That's 39% less native resolution than the most common native resolution of XGA (1024x768).

A SVGA (800x600) native resolution is in fact the worst native resolution across all similar spec multimedia projectors that have been available for more than two years.

A 1080p (1920x1080) native resolution is the best native resolution amongst comparable types of projector.

2200:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years have RMS rated powers of between 2W and 10W, and the average RMS rated power is 3.5W. The DELL 1210S has one of the lower RMS rated powers (only 2 Watts) amongst 2200:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Short Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

The average service life of lamp (economic mode) of data projectors of a similar type and age to the 1210S is 4,700h. With a service life of lamp (economic mode) of only 4,000 hours, the DELL 1210S has a quite short service life of lamp (economic mode) compared to most of the other 2200:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Expensive

We think this data projector looks expensive compared to other projectors of a comparable spec and age. The price range of projectors of a comparable spec and age is from £266 to £484.
