2000:1 Contrast Ratio
2100 Lumens
Street Price: n/a

Last August we reviewed the Dell 2400MP, a 3000 lumen, 5.5 pound XGA projector that set a dramatic new price/performance benchmark at $1100. That was an aggressive competitive move. Well, Dell has done it again, this time with the 1800MP. With 2100 ANSI lumens in a tiny 4.6 pound package, the 1800MP is a flexible projector suited to portable and education use. At $799, it is the least expensive XGA projector we've yet seen, and it sets another new price/performance standard for portable XGA projectors.
