Dell 1201MP projector

 

The Dell 1201MP comes in at quite a good buy price and for a small unit is still fairly powerful. The unit features an SVGA resolution which is still fairly decent for most uses like movies powerpoints etc. but for more detailed presentations with...

The unit produced a strong contrast level which was expected being a DLP projector but dell have gone for an older style 4 segment colour wheel running at two speed which is alright for people not prone to the rainbow effect but will be quite...

Loved it!!!

 

A year ago, someone stole my projector and I have been devastated. But, I enjoyed it so much, I am going to purchase another one. This is definitely worth the money.

I had this product for quite a few years and my children and I loved it for movie nights. It never disappointed me . The bulb blew out one time and I replaced it with no problem.

Awesome Projector For An Awesome Price!!!!

It does tend to get hot, but the fan inside does it's job very well. It's nothing to be concerned about. It has never given me any trouble.

Very Good Value

 

We have had the projector for almost 3 years. We use it as the TV in the Movie room and for the wii and x-box. we also use it outside on Summer Movie nights. we are still on the 1st bulb and I am trying to decide if it is time to spend the $300 on a...

at 2000 lumens you get what is advertised. when we use it as a TV during the day we turn off the lights and close the blinds and are off and running.

NOT for home theater!!!!

 

i am disappointed terribly by this product. I ordered this and a home theater sound system........between the 2 of them, that is all I can connect.......no room to connect my xbox 360, WII, or satellite reciever..........what is the point in having it,...

I am sure the product works fine if you are NOT using sound and are doing a slide presentation......

does not have enough jacks on the back of it

best buy on the market

 

I looked everywhere for my projector even looked at other units other folks are using. I am very satisfied with my Dell Projector and would recommend it highly.

Picture quality is outstanding w/ digital input and HD signal is real life looking out the window good! It's small and easy

The projector does get very warm, make sure its in a well vented spot.

Best For $$$

 

Great intro ( idon't think so) Great Period !!!

Ther are no cons from me...

Great Intro Projector for a Teacher

 

Great unit. You'd be hard pressed to find a better product for the price!

Probably the best projector for its price. It's sleek and projects an excellent picture. I'm a high school history teacher, and I use this every day. It's exceptionally easy to use, just plug and go. The projector automatically detects your computer!...

The unit tends to overheat a lot. However, I just bought a little fan and set it up near the grill at the front. Seems to do a good job. Some days it's fine. Some days it overheats in 20 minutes. Placing a $10 fan in front of the unit is far better...

Product Specifications

DLP DDR technology is based on a unique semiconductor known as the Digital Micromirror Device, or DMD. The DMD is a fast, reflective digital light switch. It can be combined with image processing, memory, a light source and optics to form a DLP system capable of projecting large, bright, seamless, high-contrast color images with unmatched color fidelity and consistency. The Dell 1201MP incorporates the latest generation of DLP DDR technology which now features a 12 degree mirror tilt for higher brightness, a new manufacturing process to deliver superior contrast and DDR memory for even better video reproduction.
