Dell M115HD

 

The Dell M115HD palmtop projector gets a boost in The Dell M115HD palmtop projector gets a boost in brightness over its predecessor, and has a good range of connection choices.

Tiny, lightweight, and highly portable. USB direct. Can run presentations from USB thumb drives and micro SD cards. Very long lamp life. Optional WiFi connectivity

Shows scaling artifacts at its claimed native resolution. Sub-par text quality. Notably feeble audio. Tinting in video

At a rated 450 lumens, the Dell M115HD palmtop projector gets a boost in brightness over the 300-lumen Dell M110, which it is replacing in Dell's lineup. It has a good range of connection choices for a micro-projector, and it's more compact than the...

REVIEW: Dell M115HD

 

You wait ages for a palm-sized LED projector to come along then two turn up [almost] together, with the Dell M115HD bearing a more than passing resemblance to the Optoma ML550 we reviewed recently. Along with the similarities, however, there are a...

Not quite as bright or well specified as the impressive Optoma ML550/750 duo, nevertheless the Dell M115HD is a capable and very portable projector that manages to pack a lot of useful functionality into a tiny format. It’s also easy to use with great...

Dell M115HD

 

We find out why Dell's compact digital projector is the perfect solution for tech-savvy photographers on the move.

We’re really impressed by the Dell M115HD. It might not be the most powerful projector on the market, but its 450 lumens LED bulb kicks out easily enough light for home use, even in large rooms. Colour and contrast fidelity are good, though there is a...

A Bit Loud

 

If I could go back and not buy this, I would. The fan is just too loud for me. I might try and put an aftermarket fan in it just to shut it up.

It throws a great picture. I usually have this set up in my living room and have the screen at around 3 meters. Even on a bumpy painted wall the picture looks nice. Just for fun I put it on the side of a building out in the country and watched a movie...

It says 32-36 dB but after testing I found it never drops below 45 and is usually around 50dB (even on eco mode). At 50dB it is extremely annoying. The lens gets hot and warps the picture slightly but you can manually re-adjust the focus to fix it.

For small and quick presentation this is ideal. Many of my instructors and presenters are older and hate to carry a lot of extra gear. (some are not technically savvy) So this is a blessing for them!

Having to do presentations in awkward locations, this little beauty does the trick! Very clear and bright. Not really for big seminars but for a group of 10-20 this works fine. Can use different media, I prefer the Micro SC card as there is less to...

Unfortunately it doesn't come WITH the remote, you need to buy it from dell,( neither of the remotes that work with the projector have a built in laser pointer) nor does the very handy tripod that works much better than just the "screw type foot" built...

Powerful

 

It's not something you'd take home to watch blu ray movies on or anything, but for a small conference room or a serial roadie presenter it's a must-have.

Knowing it was a micro-projector I was still taken aback by how small it is. Easily fits in the palm of my hand. Even more surprising is just how bright and vivid it is. I was projecting onto a wall 10 feet away and it was clear as a bell ; It also has...

The colors are a little muted, even if it is really bright ; From farther distances it is difficult to keep the entire image in focus. The edges are either slightly out of focus or the center is, but it's only noticable beyond 8-10 feet with a 70"...

Great buy

 

This is a great projector. Dell really pulled it off with this little guy. I do a lot of traveling and when i get stuck somewhere in transit, i can just set this up with my gaming system and pass the time.

SMALL!!! This little guy is smaller than i thought, i got this projector to replace my old ACER K11, and it is a huge upgrade. The brightness and picture quality is amazing, its low fan noise is great because i use this in my bed right next to my head....

You will have to re focus it a little after you turn it on, not sure why that is but i have my theory it is because it warms up the glass lens, but its no biggy to me. It does not have a lens cap, so i would use a little cloth to put there when traveling.
