2 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker

The CP -AW3005 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to the CP -AW3005 also have a built-in speaker.

We compared this data projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the Hitachi CP-TW2505 ($1,392.99), and the Panasonic PT-VW355N ($1,226.95) which is cheaper; or the Benq W1350 which has better reviews are also worth considering.

Quite Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode

With a noise level in economy mode of only 29 decibels, the CP -AW3005 has a fairly quiet noise level in economy mode compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the CP -AW3005. The average noise level in economy mode of projectors that were launched around the same time as the CP -AW3005 is 30dB, and the noise levels in economy mode range from 26dB to 43dB.

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most of the other multimedia projectors of this spec and age support 3D image projection, however the CP -AW3005 does not support 3D image projection.

Alternative multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might want to consider include the Benq W1350 or the Benq MW853UST+, or the Panasonic PT-VW355N ($1,226.95).

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most of the other projectors of a similar type and age to the CP -AW3005 support Full HD projection, however the Hitachi CP -AW3005 does not support Full HD projection.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Hitachi CP-TW2505 ($1,392.99), or the Panasonic PT-VW355N ($1,226.95) or the Benq W1350.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been available for a similar time to the CP -AW3005, the CP -AW3005 does not support WiFi connectivity.

Alternative projectors which also support WiFi connectivity that you might also want to consider include the PT-VW355N ($1,226.95), or the PT-VX425N ($1,282.95) both from Panasonic.

Very Small Digital Zoom

The average digital zoom of 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the CP -AW3005 is 1.8x, and the digital zooms range from 1.1x to 2x. With a digital zoom of only 1.35 times zoom factor, the CP -AW3005 has a quite small digital zoom compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that were released one year ago.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,300 ANSI lumens, the CP -AW3005 has a relatively average projector brightness compared to most of the other data projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the CP -AW3005.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to consider the PT-VW355N ($1,226.95) (4,000 ANSI lumens and cheaper), or the PT-VX425N ($1,282.95) (4,500 ANSI lumens and cheaper) both from Panasonic.
