8 Reasons For

Supports Full HD Projection

The Hitachi CP-AX3003 supports Full HD projection. Most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched around the same time as the CP-AX3003 do not support Full HD projection.

There are a number of alternative projectors which support Full HD projection currently available that you might also want to consider including because of it's better review score, the Infocus IN3138[plb_2142781_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the CP-AX3003, the CP-AX3003 has a built-in speaker.

There are a number of alternative projectors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might also want to look at including the Infocus IN3138[plb_2142781_price] which has better reviews; or the Epson EB-4650[plb_1949829_price], or the Panasonic PT-EZ580[plb_2319361_price] which is cheaper.

Quite Quiet Noise Level

Multimedia projectors of a similar age and spec to the CP-AX3003 have noise levels of between 29dB and 48dB, and the average noise level is 37dB. The CP-AX3003 has one of the quieter noise levels (only 36 decibels) amongst 5000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age.

If you don't mind having a louder noise level then you might also want to look at the Panasonic PT-EZ580[plb_2319361_price] (35dB and cheaper) or the Infocus IN3138[plb_2142781_price] (37dB and higher rated).

The CP-AX3003 is a three USB 2.0 port projector. Most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for more than two years only have between one and two USB 2.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

Most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and type only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports, however the CP-AX3003 has three VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports

Most 5000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-AX3003 have between one and two HDMI ports, including the CP-AX3003 which has two HDMI ports.

Chart Edit

Very High RMS Rated Power

Across all the similar spec projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the CP-AX3003 the RMS rated power range from 2W to 16W, and the average RMS rated power is 9.4W. When compared to other 5000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the CP-AX3003 that we have assessed, the RMS rated power of the CP-AX3003 of 16 Watts is one of the highest.

Very Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode

The average noise level in economy mode of 5000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out around the same time as the CP-AX3003 is 31dB. The CP-AX3003 has a quite quiet noise level in economy mode (only 29 decibels) compared to most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released around the same time as the CP-AX3003.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most 5000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the CP-AX3003 do not support 3D image projection. The Hitachi CP-AX3003 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D image projection.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a 3D image projection and we think the Infocus IN3138[plb_2142781_price] or the Epson EB-G6800[plb_1854682_price] are also worth considering.

There are a number of other multimedia projectors which also support WiFi connectivity which you might also want to look at including the Epson EB-4650[plb_1949829_price] which is also cheaper.

Across all the comparable spec data projectors that are a similar age to the CP-AX3003 the lamp service lives range from 2,000h to 5,000h, and the average lamp service life is 3,400h. At only 2,500 hours, the CP-AX3003 has a fairly short lamp service life compared to most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago.
