Quite Big Offset
The offsets of multimedia projectors of a similar age and spec to the S510 range from 10% to 130%. At 125 percent, the DELL S510 has a fairly big offset compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the S510.
Quite Big Uniformity
At 85 percent, the DELL S510 has a fairly big uniformity compared to most of the other projectors that came out around the same time as the S510. Across all the comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the S510 the uniformitys range from 70% to 95%.
5 Reasons Against
DELL Projectors Only Have Unexceptional Reviews
We checked the reviews from users and experts of hundreds of projectors to determine an average rating for each projector manufacturer. On average projectors manufactured by DELL have unexceptional ratings from owners and experts.
Very Short Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)
The DELL S510 has a quite short service life of lamp (economic mode) (only 4,000 hours) compared to most of the other 8000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out more than a year ago. The shortest service life of lamp (economic mode) of projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the S510 is 4,000h and the longest is 8,000h.
Very Short Service Life of Lamp
At only 3,000 hours, the DELL S510 has a fairly short service life of lamp compared to most of the other projectors that have been available for more than a year. The service life of lamps of comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the S510 range from 3,000h to 5,500h.
Very Small Internal Storage Capacity
The average internal storage capacity of multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type to the S510 is 3.2GB. The DELL S510 has one of the smaller internal storage capacitys (only 2 gigabytes) amongst comparable spec projectors of this age.
+2 More reasons against
Fairly High Power Consumption (PowerSave)
Projectors that have been around for around the same time as the S510 have power consumption (PowerSave)s of between 0.2W and 400W, and the average power consumption (PowerSave) is 190W. With a power consumption (PowerSave) of 285 Watts, the DELL S510 has one of the higher power consumption (PowerSave)s amongst comparable spec data projectors of this age.
