Owning a projector has always been an expensive ambition, and thus, has been associated with those who have a lot of money to spare. However, with time manufacturers have managed to reduce the price of the products to an extent that mostly anyone can afford one. These projectors, though are more costlier than a normal LCD or LED television, can be used as a great alternative for a HDTV that is large in size as they feature throw ratios that are larger than most HDTVs.
The projector gets hot after a short amount of usage
Dell as a brand is well known for their PC components as well as their range of projectors. In 2009, the brand launched the Dell 4610X and three years later this projector is still running strong in the market. Read on to know more about this DLP projector.
Design and Build Quality
The look of the Dell 4610X is sophisticated and could complement one’s office or home. Finished in matte black with grey highlights, this boxy looking projector has an amount of class that can make other projectors in this price range look rather shabby. There are vents at the front and side, which take care of the cooling of the projector. One may tend to assume that there are a lot of vents all over this device, which may compromise on the looks; but this is not the case with the 4610X.
Brightness levels of 3500 ANSI lumens
The top panel is minimalistic in design and all that is featured here is the control pad, the Dell branding and the side of the lamp, which features a zoom rocker and a focus ring. The sensor for the remote lies at the front of the projector. All the connectivity options for the projector lie at the back. These include inputs for VGA, one for S-video, composite video input, HDMI, two for audio line-in, two audio line-in RCA, one USB Type B, one serial RS-232, one RJ-45. Outputs for the projector featured here are for VGA and audio. The build quality of this projector is really good and it feels sturdy. The legs at the bottom of the device support it well and there is no noticeable wobble. Rounding up this segment of the review, the projector has done well thus far.
When one thinks of projectors, they usually associate it with devices that need to be tethered to a PC or laptop using a VGA or more recently a HDMI cable. When Dell launched this projector, they planned to change the game to quite a large degree by introducing a display solution that can be used wirelessly. Setting this up is a fairly simple process and even a person who is not very tech savvy can set it up easily. The on-screen guide assists one a lot, which in the process simplifies the whole setup procedure.
The controls at the top
This projector is not the newest in the market, yet it boasts of features, which can be quite desirable as compared to the newer ones available. As mentioned earlier this DLP projector features wireless connectivity, which of course is its main feature. The brand rates the maximum brightness levels at 3500 ANSI lumens and a projection distance of 1.2 to 10 metres. There are different aspect ratios supported here, including the popular 4:3 and 16:9. This allows one to view content in widescreen 16:9 as well. However, as opposed to the new range of projectors, the native XGA resolution found here is 1024 x 768 and not full HD 1920 x 1080p. This is not a bad thing by any stretch and it keeps in-line with the resolution supported by most laptops.
To setup the wireless features all one has to do is select the 4610x from their wireless network connections, go to a web browser, put in the IP address that appears on the image projected, download the Wireless Plus Projector software, run it and then put in the login code. Then one can easily view the content from their laptop without having to connect it using a cable.
