Dell 1210S

 

The Dell 1210S data projector is a capable, low-priced alternative to a portable XGA or WXGA business projector.

Low price. Easy setup and operation. Remote mouse support.

Type could be sharper. Limited connection choices. Sub-par video.

There are other alternatives more comparable to the 1210S. Be sure to check out the Optoma Pro160S; although it lacks remote mouse support, it’s rated at 3,000 lumens and offers an HDMI-in port. The Dell 1410X ($599 list, 3.5 stars) is basically the...

Great Purchase

 

This is a great product at a great price. It is easy to setup and easy use. I used it in both large and small areas and the performance did not falter. My only suggestion is that you should attach speakers for anything that needs to be heard in larger...

Great Projector

 

I was looking for a resonably priced projector that wouldn't break the bank, something very easy to use, bright enough to use in a well lit room, rugged enough to lug around, and not to ackward to carry. I found it! Even I could figure out how to use...

Dell 1210S Projector

 

The projector has great daylight visibility and contrast. It has a dual use for professional presentations and movie and X-Box use at home. It has been excellent at both. The remote gives immediate control for the various input sources. I like it alot.

Great Buy for the Price

 

I work for a large company and I am exposed to a large number of projectors from various makers. The typical process is to check a projector out for a meeting and return when complete. Since this is a hassle especially when traveling, I decide to...
