Dell M209X Projector
Dell on Tuesday provided an extra addition to its projector lineup with a sneak peek at the M209X. The DLP-based projector weighs only 2.6 pounds but is designed to be strong and sharp enough to work either as a computer projector for meetings and classrooms or as a home theater unit. With a 2,000-lumen brightness, the unit can produce a visible image in all but the brightest conditions, Dell estimates. It also combines both HDMI and VGA inputs to provide the best possible digital signal, including for HD sources such as Blu-ray players.
The portable projector also offers up both RCA and S-video jacks and comes with its own carrying bag as well as a stylized remote designed to match most living room equipment. Dell has not provided an official release date or the maximum resolution of the projector but says it will begin taking orders for the M209X within the next few weeks at a price of $999.
