Just Released Five Months Ago

DELL only released the 1610HD five months ago. Newer projectors like this one are likely to have better features.

Supports 3D

The DELL 1610HD supports 3D, which is unusual. Most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that came out in the last 12 months do not support 3D.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The DELL 1610HD has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other data projectors that were launched in the last year also have a built-in speaker(s).

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including because of it's better review score, the VPL-DX220[pl_3760761_price], or the VPL-EW235[pl_3703631_price] both from Sony or the DELL M900HD[plb_3821033_price].

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantitys

The DELL 1610HD has more VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys than most of the similar spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the 1610HD. Most of the comparable spec data projectors that were released around the same time as the 1610HD only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys, however this multimedia projector has three VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Very Light

With a weight of only 2.4 kilograms, the DELL 1610HD is fairly light compared to most of the other projectors that are a comparable age to the 1610HD. The average weight of latest comparable spec projectors is 8.9kg, and the weights range from 1.5kg to 28kg.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Unexceptional Brand

Based on 657 owner and expert reviews, DELL has unexceptional ratings for its multimedia projectors. DELL also has unexceptional ratings specifically within its 2100:1 contrast ratio projectors range compared to other manufacturers.

A Bit Expensive

One customer mentioned in their reviews that it was not cheap.

Only 100V AC Input Voltage

This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many similar spec data projectors that were released in the last year.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD

The DELL 1610HD does not support full HD. Most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been available for a similar time to the 1610HD do support full HD.

There are a number of alternative projectors which also support full HD that you might also want to look at including the JmGO G1S[plb_4048042_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The DELL 1610HD does not support wi-Fi, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the 1610HD also do not support wi-Fi.

We compared this data projector to all the other data projectors with a wi-Fi and we think the DELL M900HD[plb_3821033_price], or the JmGO G1S[plb_4048042_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Very Short Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

Chart Edit

Only One HDMI Ports Quantity

Most recently released comparable spec data projectors have between one and two HDMI ports quantitys, including the DELL 1610HD which has one HDMI ports quantity.
