Samsung SP-F10M projector

 

The Samsung SP-F10M is notable because it is an LED projector that breaks the 1000 ANSI lumen barrier, meaning it is cost effective (to run) as well as being powerful enough to use in most situations. It is pitched as a business model and has a range...

Low power consumption, connectivity, Media Play file support means PC free projections

Video file support a little hit and miss, noisy, price

The addition of this file support makes the Samsung SP-F10M a choice for those who need a projector that does a little more than just display what you have on your PC. It means you don't have to be a slave to your computer for presentations, you can...

The first LED-driven projector to claim a 1,000 ANSI lumens light output.

Samsung F10M review

 

The Samsung F10M is unique in being the first true LED projector to reach 1,000 lumens brightness. We previously saw the 2,000 lumen Casio XJ-A135, but that uses a laser to supplement the LED light source. The F10M is aimed squarely at business users....

A capable office projector with a cost-saving LED light source, but it’s not quite bright enough for most office meeting rooms.

Samsung SP-F10M

 

The LED light source in the Samsung SP-F10M means never having to buy a replacement lamp.

LED light source lasts life of unit. High-quality data images. Reads files directly from USB memory key. HDMI input.

Although the brightness rating is extremely high for an LED light source, it's low for a business projector.

Samsung SP-M250 vs. Samsung SP-F10M

 

This article discusses the Samsung SP-M250's differences

Good color rendition and readability with native resolution or higher ; Lamp never needs replacing ; PC-free presentations via USB ; No dust filters to maintain and replace ; Ability to monitor and adjust most projector functions via a networked computer

Not as bright as much of the competition ; Limited zoom range ; No network display capability or wireless networking

While it subjectively appears brighter than it measures, it still only provides less than half the lumen output of much of the competition, some of which are markedly lower in cost. For example, the recently reviewed Dell 1610HD provided almost 3000...
