Dell M109S

 

The tiny Dell M109S ($449 as of 8/7/09) is a palm-size LED projector with a low brightness rating of only 50 lumens, which makes it best suited for very small groups in dark or dimly lit conference rooms. Weighing just 12.8 ounces, the M109S is the...

Highly mobile (barely weighs one pound) ; 10,000 hours of LED light

Very low brightness (50 lumens) ; Comparatively expensive

Dell M109S

 

Looking for a projector you can carry with minimal effort so you can give presentations just about anywhere? How about one you can also set up quickly at home to play games at large-screen size or watch a movie? If you answered yes to either question,...

Highly portable. LED light source with 10,000-hour life

No remote. Hard-to-use control panel

The Dell M109S is a new-generation palm-size projector—small, light, cheap, and suitable for both business travel and home use.

Dell M109S projector

 

Travellers may find Dell's tiny and long lived M109S projector a boon, but watch out for its low brightness.

Seriously tiny ... so it has novelty appeal, Very light at 360 grams, Easy to set up and use, Auto keystone adjustment, Super long lamp life, Low running cost, No mercury involved

1/40 of standard projector brightness, 2/3 to 1/2 the average projector resolution, Lots of cables reduce portability, Small maximum and minimum display size, Gets very hot

Review: Dell M109S ultraportable projector

 

Dell's tiny M109S is a palm-size LED projector with a low brightness rating of only 50 lumens, which makes it best suited for very small groups in dark or dimly lit conference rooms.

The downside is that Dell had to sacrifice some features in order to achieve the M109S’s ultralight design. It has a low native resolution of 858-by-600 pixels, which means you have to turn down the resolution on your Mac and you won’t get the best...

Dell's latest offering for road warriors looking to lighten the load is the M109S Projector. Measuring 3.64" x 4.12" x 1.46" unit and weighing 0.80 lbs, the device boasts 858x600 SVGA native resolution, 800:1 contrast ratio and DLP display technology....

Illumination is provided by a mercury-free, 50 ANSI Lumens (maximum) LED light module that projects an image between 15 and 60 inches in size (diagonal) over a distance of 60-240 cm and offers 10,000 hours of usage before it needs replacing

Dell M109S On-The-Go Projector - HardwareZone.com

 

Dell is not a name synonymous with projectors, but the M109S On-The-Go portable projector, which uses a DLP Pico chipset, looks so good and small that we just couldn't resist.

Dell M109S review

 

Even with its cables, AC adaptor, and carry case, the Dell M109S has a traveling weight of under 1kg, making it a snap to take on the road.

All in all, it's difficult to recommend the Dell M109S for mobile presentations when for just a few pounds more you can have a slightly larger LED projector - the BenQ Joybee GP1 - that's twice as bright, provides better image quality, and has more...

Dell M109S review

 

Dell is the latest company to jump on the tiny projector bandwagon. The M109S won't quite fit into a pocket, but it's brighter and has a higher resolution than the 'pico' projectors we've seen recently from Aiptek and Optoma.

Dell M109S LCD projector review

 

The Dell M109S LCD projector is a good but not great option for those who need to see the light.

Small compact size and weight, can sometimes be found discounted online which makes the projector a much more appetising deal

Poor picture quality, lacklustre motion and colours, focus ring difficult to master, on-screen display controls messy, cut down size means some features are missing

All in all, it's difficult to recommend the Dell M109S for mobile presentations when for just a few pounds more you can have a slightly larger LED projector - the BenQ Joybee GP1 - that's twice as bright, provides better image quality, and has more...
