Based on 1,027 user and expert reviews, DELL has unexceptional reviews for its multimedia projectors. DELL also has unexceptional reviews specifically within its 2200:1 contrast ratio projectors range.

OK Running Costs

Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The DELL 1550 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other latest projectors.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including a cheaper data projector such as the DELL S510 (£499.99) or you might consider a higher rated data projector such as the Optoma W303ST (£641.26).

We compared this data projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Optoma HD140X (£568.29) is also worth considering.

Alternative projectors which also support full HD that you might want to look at include the Optoma HD140X (£568.29).
