Review by Majis0

This is good projector for the price. My main use for this projector has been home entertainment. In my opinion, it is the same projector as Optoma's ML550 with a different OS (same chip, same shape, almost identical interfacing). I have played with both projectors, and I bought the Dell because of its lower price point. The image quality, color, and contrast are all good (I am hoping to see a 1080p version of these small projectors at some point in the near future). No Ceiling Mount menu option. Not a huge issue for me as I don't leave it out all the time. This makes the fan more audible when you are closer to the projector. I don't think you would notice the fan if the projector could be ceiling mounted for your standard entertainment consoles. Overall it is a good projector, and I have enjoyed owning the M115HD and would recommend it if you can live without ceiling mounting you projector.

Any Problems: I wonder if there is a way to activate the ceiling mount in the firmware. The coding is visible in Dell's firmware update, but not in the settings of the projector itself. Someone with a good understanding of small OS programming may be able to activate it though.
