4 Reasons For

Supports WiFi Connectivity

The CP-AW2505 supports WiFi connectivity. Most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the CP-AW2505 do not support WiFi connectivity.

Other multimedia projectors which support WiFi connectivity currently available which you might want to consider include because of it's better review score, the Epson EX7235[plb_3060914_price].

We compared all the other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this data projector and we think the Hitachi CPX2541WN[plb_3419040_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The CP-AW2505 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other data projectors of this age and spec.

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker to this projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Epson PowerLite W29[plb_2896328_price] is also worth considering.

Very High Maximum Horizontal Synchronization

The lowest maximum horizontal synchronization of multimedia projectors of this spec and age is 100kHz, the highest is 110kHz, and the average maximum horizontal synchronization is 100kHz. The CP-AW2505 has one of the highest maximum horizontal synchronization (106 kilohertz) amongst data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The CP-AW2505 has more VGA (D-Sub) ports than most of the comparable spec data projectors that are a similar age to the CP-AW2505. Most of the 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released one year ago only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports, however this projector has three VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The CP-AW2505 does not support 3D image projection, unlike most of the other data projectors of this age and type.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The CP-AW2505 does not support Full HD projection, unlike most of the other projectors that have been available for more than a year which support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The dimmest projector brightness of similar spec multimedia projectors that were launched more than a year ago is 600 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 12,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,600 ANSI lumens. The CP-AW2505 has a fairly dim projector brightness (only 2,700 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the CP-AW2505.

If you would prefer a multimedia projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to consider the P1500[pl_3806777_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens), or the H6517ST[pl_3929999_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens) both from Acer which is also higher rated.

Very Small Digital Zoom

With a digital zoom of only 1.35 times zoom factor, the Hitachi CP-AW2505 has one of the smaller digital zooms amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age. The average digital zoom of 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for more than a year is 1.8x.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim White Light Output

The dimmest white light output of multimedia projectors that were launched more than a year ago is 2,700 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 4,100 ANSI lumens. At only 2,700 ANSI lumens, the Hitachi CP-AW2505 has a fairly dim white light output compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the CP-AW2505.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Colour Light Output

The CP-AW2505 has one of the dimmer colour light outputs (only 2,700 ANSI lumens) amongst multimedia projectors of this age. The colour light outputs of projectors that have been around for a similar time to the CP-AW2505 range from 2,100 ANSI lumens to 4,100 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Only One Component Video in Port

Most similar spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the CP-AW2505 have one component video in port, including the CP-AW2505 which has one component video in port.

Chart Edit

Quite Loud Noise Level in Economy Mode

With a noise level in economy mode of 32 decibels, the CP-AW2505 has a fairly loud noise level in economy mode compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and type. The noise levels in economy mode of 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-AW2505 range from 26dB to 43dB.

3 Other reasons to consider the Hitachi CP-AW2505

Released Over a Year Ago

It was over a year ago when Hitachi released the CP-AW2505.

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

This projector has a native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is typical of many similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to it.

Chart Edit

Average Noise Level

The CP-AW2505 has a pretty average noise level (34 decibels) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the CP-AW2505.

If you would consider a projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the PJ X2240[pl_2938029_price] (34dB), or the PJ WX2240[pl_3011875_price] (34dB) both from Ricoh or the Benq MW855UST[plb_3333837_price] (34dB).
