5 Reasons For

Supports Full HD Projection

The CP-A222 supports Full HD projection, which is unusual. Most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-A222 do not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other projectors that have been available for a similar time to the CP-A222, the CP-A222 has a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Three USB 2.0 Ports

The Hitachi CP-A222 has more USB 2.0 ports than most of the projectors of this age and type. Most of the multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to the CP-A222 only have between one and two USB 2.0 ports, however this projector has three USB 2.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Supports Four Image Formats

The CP-A222 has a greater number of supported image formats than most similar spec projectors that were launched more than two years ago. This Hitachi multimedia projector supports a GIF image format, which is the most frequently supported image format supported by multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the CP-A222. The image formats "BMP", "JPG" and "PNG" are also supported by this data projector.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode

At only 28 decibels, the CP-A222 has a very quiet noise level in economy mode compared to most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-A222. Projectors of this age and type have noise levels in economy mode of between 28dB and 39dB.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Hitachi CP-A222 does not support WiFi connectivity, although this is within the context that most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the CP-A222 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Other data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity that you might want to consider include the L51W, or the NP-P451 ($1,451.18) both from NEC which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The CP-A222 does not support 3D image projection, although it is worth noting that most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to the CP-A222 also do not support 3D image projection.

Alternative projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might also want to consider include the NEC L51W which also has a higher rating.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released around the same time as the CP-A222 have projector brightness of between 500 ANSI lumens and 13,000 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of only 2,200 ANSI lumens, the CP-A222 has one of the dimmer projector brightness amongst comparable spec multimedia projectors of this age.

If this Hitachi projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to consider the Hitachi CPAW252WNM (2,500 ANSI lumens).

Very Dim Brightness in Economy Mode

Data projectors of this spec and age have brightness in economy mode of between 1,500 ANSI lumens and 3,000 ANSI lumens, and the average brightness in economy mode is 2,100 ANSI lumens. With a brightness in economy mode of only 1,500 ANSI lumen, the CP-A222 has one of the dimmer brightness in economy mode amongst 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Short Lamp Service Life

The shortest lamp service life of 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the CP-A222 is 2,000h, the longest is 20,000h, and the average lamp service life is 4,700h. At only 3,000 hours, the CP-A222 has a quite short lamp service life compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the CP-A222.

Chart Edit

Quite Short Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

With a service life of lamp in economic mode of only 5,000 hours, the CP-A222 has a quite short service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other data projectors of a similar spec and age to the CP-A222. The service life of lamp in economic mode of multimedia projectors of this age and type range from 3,000h to 10,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 5,800h.

3 Other reasons to consider the Hitachi CP-A222

Released Over Three Years Ago

This Hitachi multimedia projector has been on the market for over three years.

Average Noise Level

The CP-A222 has a relatively standard noise level (34 decibels) compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for more than two years.

Alternative data projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the Hitachi CPAW252WNM (34dB).
