7 Reasons For

Supports Full HD Projection

The Hitachi CP-CX251N supports Full HD projection, which is unusual. Most of the other similar spec projectors that have been available for the last year do not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other new 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors, the CP-CX251N has a built-in speaker.

It is worth considering alternative multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the DELL 4220 ($934.99).

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the CP-CX251N is 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of the most frequently found graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this multimedia projector). In addition, this projector support graphics resolutions of 800 x 600 (SVGA), 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA) and 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 1440 x 900 (WXGA+). Multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the CP-CX251N graphics resolutions range from 640 x 480 (VGA) (worst) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) (best).

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The CP-CX251N has more VGA (D-Sub) ports than most of the 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released in the last 12 months. Most of the 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the CP-CX251N only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports, however this projector has three VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

Across all the projectors that were released in the last 12 months the service life of lamp in economic mode range from 2,500h to 20,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 6,500h. At 10,000 hours, the Hitachi CP-CX251N has a fairly long service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the CP-CX251N.

Chart Edit

Very Long Lamp Service Life

The shortest lamp service life of latest multimedia projectors is 2,000h and the longest is 5,000h. At 5,000 hours, the CP-CX251N has a very long lamp service life compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the CP-CX251N.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode

The CP-CX251N has one of the quieter noise levels in economy mode (only 29 decibels) amongst 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age. Across all the latest 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors the noise levels in economy mode range from 29dB to 36dB, and the average noise level in economy mode is 31dB.

Chart Edit

10 Reasons Against

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most comparable spec projectors that have been around for around the same time as the CP-CX251N do not support WiFi connectivity. The CP-CX251N is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The CP-CX251N does not support 3D image projection, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the CP-CX251N also do not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Projector Brightness

Data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the CP-CX251N have projector brightness of between 2,500 ANSI lumens and 8,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 5,100 ANSI lumens. At only 2,500 ANSI lumens, the CP-CX251N has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other newly released 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors.

Multimedia projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might also be worth considering include the DELL 4220 ($934.99) (4,100 ANSI lumens).

Very Low RMS Rated Power

The CP-CX251N has one of the lower RMS rated power (only 1 Watt) amongst data projectors of this age. The RMS rated power of comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for the last year range from 1W to 10W.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Brightness in Economy Mode

Latest multimedia projectors have brightness in economy mode of between 1,600 ANSI lumens and 6,400 ANSI lumens. The Hitachi CP-CX251N has a fairly dim brightness in economy mode (only 1,675 ANSI lumen) compared to most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the CP-CX251N.

Chart Edit

Only 525i Video Mode

This multimedia projector supports a 480i|480p|525i|576i|625i|720p|1080i|1080p video mode, which is the most commonly supported video mode on new 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Colour Light Output

With a colour light output of only 2,500 ANSI lumens, the Hitachi CP-CX251N has one of the dimmer colour light outputs amongst multimedia projectors of this age. Projectors that have been around for a similar time to the CP-CX251N have colour light outputs of between 2,500 ANSI lumens and 6,500 ANSI lumens, and the average colour light output is 4,400 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Very Dim White Light Output

The dimmest white light output of projectors that came out in the last year is 2,500 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 6,500 ANSI lumens. With a white light output of only 2,500 ANSI lumens, the CP-CX251N has one of the dimmer white light outputs amongst similar spec projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Small Lamp Power

At only 225 Watts, the CP-CX251N has a quite small lamp power compared to most of the other latest data projectors. The smallest lamp power of similar spec data projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the CP-CX251N is 220W, the biggest is 400W, and the average lamp power is 310W.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Matrix Size

The average matrix size of data projectors that have been on the market for the last year is 0.68". At only 0.63 inches, the CP-CX251N has a quite small matrix size compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released around the same time as the CP-CX251N.
