Dell 1610HD Projector Overview
The Dell 1610HD projector is a portable WXGA (1280 X 800), 3-D ready, DLP multimedia projector that is equally adept in the classroom or conference room. It provides a great combination of high brightness and a sharp picture, all at a price below $1000.
While it incorporates the usual features for a projector in this class (like wired network control and monitoring, auto adjustment and lightweight), the 1610HD goes a step further than some of the competition by including an HDMI input (a welcome sight in a sub-$1000 multimedia projector), USB and RS-232 remote control and a handy carrying bag.
The Dell 1610HD uses a Texas Instruments DarkChip3 DLP chip, which only a few years ago was the state-of-the-art for home theater projectors. This allows for a decent contrast ratio (2100:1) and black level that makes for acceptable movie viewing if desired.
The 1610HD is very portable, easy to setup and comes with Dell’s 2-year Advanced Exchange Warranty to provide you with a replacement if there’s a problem with the projector. As you will see in the review to follow, the Dell 1610HD performs well in every category and is a very good value for its price.
