Summary: Personal Experience purchased from personal owner 12months ago. had a squealing sound. got louder so I checked it out. easy to get into and it was the high speed color wheel. Problems Dell says this unit is no longer in production so they have no parts. internet search produced nothing available. I recommend a user and one for parts.
Summary: The projector was easy to set up. I used it to watch football game films for my players (High School) and it was a tremendous learning tool we utilized for the last half of the season. (It beats watching film on a TV) It came with a great carry case too! The projector was delivered in less than a week and it came just in time for a film session. This was my first purchase on E-Bay and I will be using E-Bay in the future!
Summary: Personal Experience Good projector. I've been told by Dell that, since it is out of warrantee that it is my tough luck. No recommendation of a place to fix it or anything. Stay away from this turkey. Problems Projector has stopped. Dell will not support it. An expensive paperweight. I recommended Dell to a client and now I'm a bad guy for doing so. Fool me once, shame on you....
Summary: Personal Experience I have had my dell 2100mp for two years and have loved it. Resently the color wheel ( an internal part) flew apart. The unit has not been moved for the whole time of use (other then cleaning) and dell has no idea what it is... Problems I have spent countless hours on the phone with tech.
Summary: Personal Experience I have had the 2100MP for about 2years now with 750~ hours on the lamp. Its been a great projector compared to my old Sanyo LCD projector. HDTV looks great. It syncs very fast to any given input, which is a nice thing compared to some other projectors I have read about. Problems Like the last reveiw here, my 2100 has developed a yellowish/brown spot in the lower right corner. Dell refuses to do anything for me since it is out of warrenty.
Summary: Personal Experience I've had this projector for a year (purchased April 2003). It recently started showing yellowing along the right edge. Dell tech support had this to say: "All DLP projectors will have this issue, which is common for projectors in the equivalent price range/feature set of the Dell 3100MP and 3200MP. In some cases, lowering the "White Intensity" may help. If a customer refuses to accept this explanation, the projector should be returned for credit.
Summary: Personal Experience Having had my 2100MP for a 9 months now, I must say this is an amazing little projector. Image quality is awesome, especially considering I picked it up for under a grand. Construction is incredible, I don't think I've seen a projector built as solidly. Documentation is first rate, and it's very easy to use - and I love the cute but very functional little remote. The projector looks beautiful displaying movies or powerpoint.
Summary: Personal Experience Here is my second review. My bulb went out after only 153 hours of usage. I called Dell and the guy was giving me lecture as if I don't know how to use a projector. I told him I didn't do any thing to burn the bulb. In any case my warranty had just expired so I was forced to purchase another bulb. I wanted to buy a bulb right away but they were out of stock. Gee I wonder why? The bulb price was actually $299 â€“ 10% off.
Summary: Personal Experience I purchased my 2100MP in April 2003 and it performed well for six months. My primary application is home theater use and it generally produced an excellent image if the input was from a good video source such as progresive scan DVD or HDTV. I also like the compact size of the machine. It runs hot however, don't sit next to it unless you like to sweat. Problems However...in October, 2003 my projector began to fail and I am now awaiting a replacement.
