Dell 2400MP
Portable Data Projector

Bill Livolsi, August 2, 2006

Every once in a while, a projector comes along that sets a dramatic new price/performance benchmark. The Dell 2400MP is just such a projector. It is a 5.5lb XGA projector that puts out 3000 ANSI lumens, which in itself is rare. But in addition, it has an MSRP of $1099 (editor's note: Dell has informed us that $999 was a promotional price, and that the standard MSRP is $1099), which makes the Dell 2400MP an as-yet-unmatched value in terms of lumens per dollar in portable projectors. If you are on the road and giving Powerpoint presentations on the go, this projector offers good features at a great price, and it may be ideal for you. It will also be particularly attractive as a cost-effective solution for classroom presentation.
