This is a great travel projector, perfect for those small group meetings (I would say under 10 people in small room). If you plan on holding larger scale meetings or training, this is not the right projector for those projects (as it is not bright enough to give you the clarity you need).

The pros - The compact size. It is small enough to fit in your laptop bag, and not "bulk" it up, plus the projector hardly weighs anything.

The cons - The clarity and the overall size. Due to the small size, the projector cables (to your laptop and to power) overwhelm the projector and make it unstable. You will need a tri-pod to use this projector to keep it balanced - do yourself a favor and just buy the tri-pod when you buy the projector.

I just received this projector from Dell, opened the box and marveled at how small, i.e.: portable, it is. It weighs .8 pounds and easily fits in the palm of your hand. It's extremely easy to use with a PC - it comes configured to simply plug and play using an included VGA cable. Be sure your computer has a VGA port, or you'll have to figure out a work around for a connection. Because it's small the output is not terribly bright, but since I'm using it for business presentations this works fine for me, as I can usually dim the lights if needed. The primary things I needed were easy portability, easy setup and low to no maintenance - I didn't want to be bothered with burnt out light bulbs. The last criteria was the primary reason I chose this model over other, less expensive projectors. It has LED lights that will last a long, long time - the specs in the instructions indicate 30,000 hours. That's much longer than I expect to use it before I get a new one, which, effectively means, I'll never have to deal with a burnt out light.

I addition to my Dell PC I have a Mac. I had to buy additional cables to use it on the Macintosh. Here's what I did. I bought a Thunderbolt/Mini Display Port to HDMI adaptor (around $10 or less) and an HDMI to HDMI cable (about $20). Plug the Thunderbolt/Mini Display Port to HDMI adaptor into your Thunderbolt/Mini Display Port on the Mac. Connect the HDMI female socket on this cable to the HDMI male socket on the second HDMI to HDMI cable. When you have the two cables joined, connect it to the HDMI port in the projector. The computer and the projector should automatically function together to project what is on your computer screen. If it does not do this, it may be that the projector is set to use the VGA cables that you use for a PC. The input on the projector must be set to recognize an HDMI input source, which is what these Mac cables are. To check what the projector is set to recognize and to change it if needed see the instruction manual that comes with the projector under “Input Source” on page 26.

Really, this is much harder to describe than it is to do. Once you get the cables, it's all pretty intuitive and goes quickly.

I'm really excited about this. What a great little machine!

It's a nice product, compact, light, and has a great video definition. I bought one and I'm using with the wi-fi dongle, it's perfect since it doesn't require any video cable to work, just the power cable. However, keep in mind that if you're planning to use the wifi dongle on a notebook (like I did), the usb dongle uses the notebook wi-fi adapter to connect to the projector - which means you can't use the wi-fi network to browse on internet, for example. The usb dongle is connected in the projector (I thought it would be connected in the notebook), so since all notebooks only have 1 wi-fi adapter, you have to choose: to connect the projector or the internet, but not both at the same time. My solution for that was to purchase a 2nd usb wi-fi adapter to connect to the projector, and use the one in the notebook to connect to the internet, then it's possible to use both at the same time.

I love it! Since my purchase, I use it in my Youth group sessions and Sunday School. I've have used the HDMI, Universal, USB ports as well as accessed the internal memory to show my powerpoint presentations. Along with the Dell wireless adapter dongle, I'm able to connect wirelessly.

I researched a lot before buying this projector and this was the best choice. When looking at a portable projector, take into consideration the following:

1. Contrast (ex: 10,000 to 1...2000 to 1)
2. Lumens (please make sure its the new ANSI type)
3. Lifetime (ex: 30,000 hrs)
4. Resolution
5, Connectors

Contrast and Lumens determine the quality of the image and lumens the brightness of the projection. I used it over a weekend for a retreat in a house during daytime. It had no problem producing bright light and the contrast was considerably better than a brookstone or AAPX projector.

Lifetime is always super important since replacing such bulbs are as expensive as the actual projector.This projector can go for 30,000 hours compared to 15,000 to 20,000 on other brands.

Overall, this is the best option out there for those who do not want to spend more than $420 on a portable projector that produces bright image even during the daytime on a 100 inches screen and last years of usage.

Does mostly what it claims. I had problems with the sound on multiple files that were encoded with H.264 and variable bit rate sound, the sound was very clearly "warbling", enough to make it unusable (the picture was just fine). When I tried other files e.g. MP4 with fixed bit rate it worked very well. When I tried the files that didn't play properly on two over devices they played just fine. It could be that it needed updated firmware. According the the manual H.264 at 1080p with variable bit rate up to 300kpbs is supported. Would benefit from a lens cap. There is a carry bag, but I intended to power it from an external battery pack, making the carry bag (which is intended to carry device, power block and cables) some extra bulk that I preferred not to carry - which is where a lens cap would be useful.

It's affordable and easy to set up. Just plug it in and you have a perfectly good HD image on your wall. Even with some light in the room, the picture is GREAT! I use it for movies, my computer, and Xbox. I recommend this product.

I bought the M110 almost two years ago and it's been great. It's only shortcoming was that you could never get all four corners focused at the same time.

The first thing that I noticed with the M115 is that they fixed that problem! The screen throws a slightly smaller picture at the same distance as the M110, but it focuses sharply across the entire screen. Also, the colors look better, especially blues and it's brighter.

I've been using this guy as my tv in my living room. It's screwed onto a camera tripod I got for $10. I put over 5000 hours on the old one without a hitch and there's still 15,000 hours left on the bulb! I expect the same reliability from this one.

The LED bulb is the major selling point for it's long life and low energy consumption. The whole machine only runs on like 40 watts. Compare that to normal projectors that have several hundred watt bulbs that burn out after 3-4000 hours and can cost hundreds of dollars to replace.

If you are looking for more reviews on this product, go check out the ones for the M110, keeping in mind that this one is noticeably better.

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. You can flip the image if you run your picture from a computer or android device. The lack of a ceiling mount makes the fan more audible since 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.

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.
