Yeah I was wondering this as well. Looks like one of the 500 lumen clones (Acer K330, Optoma ML500, NEC and Viewsonic ones) but I haven't seen comparisons or opinions on it around here and I'm not sure if it's basically the same pj or not.

If it is, it looks like the cheapest version of those for now too, unless that MSRP on the Acer K330 at US release is for real ($419). I wouldn't mind saving ~150 bucks over an Optoma ML500 if the differences are negligible.

FYI: Looking at the online manual it doesn't appear to have a ceiling mode, which would rule this out for quite a few setups if true.

I think he meant the leds pulse at a rate equivalent to a 6 segment color wheel.

The 10,000 on/off contrast ratio seems too good to be true........Any real world feedback about the contrast from users?

I personally tested this projector. It uses some form of dynamic contrast in the form of output power modulation (I did not find evidence for an iris). It was exceptionally noticeable on ending credits when white text would fade in from a black screen and the whole black background would turn dark grey.

As mentioned above, it does indeed use "diamond" shaped pixels.

Other bad points about this were:
- uneven focus across the entire screen, either the left, center, or right side were in sharp focus.
- bad CA
- loud ... [did you hear me over the noise] LOUD (okay so maybe I am used to the quietness of my RS40). Its louder (or should I say more obnoxious due to the tiny high speed fans) than a Casio M-series Laser PJ on high (which I briefly tested and returned on the second day for a while list of other issues -- yes I am VERY picky)
- hard to keep it flat ... oh, and the feet on the M110 are bad

On the plus side, it was actually quite bright ... I'm pretty sure it hit or exceeded its 300 lm specs and it is quite cheap (especially when on sale) compared to all the other models. Almost worth keeping just to mod for other purposes ...

If someone has some specific questions, feel free to fire away

How do you consider this one in comparison to SP-H03 ?
have u tested that ?
the lumens and contrast ration is very different in these two, while the prices are quite close.
does the SP-H03 have those focusing issues ? scaling artifacts ? color ?
thanks

I have try units and all has uneven focus (not identical in direction though)

Sometimes, I use it for reading ebook so quite too much.

Dell will get the unit back soon.

Project no2:

The problem is still there but slightly different and there is more problem.

A close up comparison.
i1104.photobucket.com/albums/h340/suzukishop/ss2/Dell0202.jpg
Please check the bottom of the picture. The focus is fine on the left - see "Scripts". Interestingly, the middle area is so blue - see "Object" but it is better on the right - see "Options" (while the middle area on the top is better)

Just ordered this projector for portable gaming/movie watching, can't wait to try it out. I'll be back with my review and thoughts on Friday.

I'm hoping that the uneven focus of the projection that everyone mentions won't be noticeable for movie watching.

How about that review

Wondering if it is good for cheap gaming and tv watching?

There are a few youtube videos that look good.

Review on projector central.

"The Dell M110 throws an impressive picture that under the right viewing conditions can surpass the quality of much larger and less portable projectors. "

and Pc mag review

Would a Dell projector have better build quality than the others?

why is this thing not talked about more? i didn't know about it until now and it appears that it easily beats the optoma ml500 and other clones.

Lol, completely forgot.

I'll start off by saying that this thing is small, very portable especially with the carrying case it comes in. The build quality is excellent, I've accidentally had it drop when a tripod I had attached to it tilted over, the projector was fine. I have only used it with my laptop and have been happy with the results, albeit a few quirks and minor (for me) cons.

The Good:
Small & Portable
HDMI input for HD video
Good color and quality in a dark room

The Bad:
Loud - I was expecting it to be loud but not as loud as it turned out to be. Think xbox loud.
Focus is not Uniform - As others have stated there uneven focus across the screen. Not to bad for Movies, but can be painful for text
Hard to setup without tripod - being that it is small the cables in the back will tilt the projector to the side or back if you don't have a small tripod to keep it in position.


All in all I would buy this projector again, since I have not found another projector that is as portable and looks as good under the right conditions as the Dell M110. Hope this helps anyone on the fence.
