Bright enough for the range from large conference room to small auditorium, the Dell 7700FullHD Projector is particularly appropriate for conference rooms where it has to sit in plain view. Quite simply, it looks good. Although it's on the large side, at 5.3" x 17.0" x 11.4" (HWD), it's sleek and businesslike, with a shiny black case and clean design that will complement the decor in an executive boardroom. And it doesn't hurt that it projects a bright, high quality data image.

Dell rates the DLP-based 7700FullHD at 5000 lumens, and it lived up to that rating in our tests, making it easily bright enough for the size room it's meant for. As you might guess from the FullHD part of the name, it offers 1920x1080 native resolution, making it a good choice for showing complex data images or multiple windows. It also offers picture-in-picture (PIP) mode, so you can see images from two sources at once, and side-by-side mode, so you can see them both at 960-pixels wide.

For this class of projector, the 1.2x manual zoom is a little limited, but any zoom adds flexibility for positioning, and the vertical and horizontal lens shift offer even more flexibility. Overall, the 7700FullHD qualifies as a definitively capable beast, and it offers more than enough to make it worth its $3,999 direct price.

In 2014 we bought 4 of these. Within the year all 4 were returned for malfunction. The warranty was for refurbished...meaning they gave us items that were broken and fixed - not new. Tried several times to work it out with Customer Service, but the language barrier was a nightmare. When working product is great, but they didn't work long enough to give a good review. Won't buy or recommend these.

The contrast ratio displayed here is confusing.

The following are taken from the official specifications:

Contrast Ratio: 2500:1 (Natural) 10000:1 (Dynamic) 20000:1 (Static)
