7 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Hitachi CP-DW25WN has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other projectors that have been available for around the same time as the CP-DW25WN.

Alternative data projectors with a built-in speaker that you might want to consider include a better rated product such as the EB-430 LW, or the EB-X12 both from Epson or the Optoma DS317.

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

This projector has a native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is typical of many 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for a comparable time to it.

There are a number of other data projectors that have a resolution of WXGA (1280x800) that you might want to consider including a better rated product such as the EB-1400WI, or the EB-1410 both from Epson or the Optoma DW312.

Projectors with a higher resolution that might be worth considering include the SP840 (1080p (1920x1080 and higher rated) and higher rated), or the SH960 ($3,239.00) (1080p (1920x1080 and higher rated) and higher rated) both from Benq or the Infocus IN3128 (1080p (1920x1080 and higher rated) and higher rated).

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The CP-DW25WN is a three VGA (D-Sub) port projector. Most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are more than two years old have between one and three VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Three USB 2.0 Ports

The CP-DW25WN is a three USB 2.0 port projector. Most of the other projectors that are older than two years have between one and three USB 2.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Supports Five Video Modes

The number of supported video mode on the CP-DW25WN is more than most projectors of this type and age. This Hitachi multimedia projector supports a 480p video mode, which is the most commonly supported video mode supported by data projectors that are older than two years. The video modes "1080i", "1080p", "480i" and "720p" are also supported by this projector.

Chart Edit

Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode

The quietest noise level in economy mode of multimedia projectors that are more than two years old is 26dB and the loudest is 35dB. At only 28 decibels, the CP-DW25WN has a fairly quiet noise level in economy mode compared to most of the other projectors of this age and type.

Chart Edit

A Bit Short

The Hitachi CP-DW25WN is fairly short (only 85 millimeters) compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than two years. The shortest similar spec projector that has been around for a comparable time to the CP-DW25WN is 5.2mm tall, the tallest is 510mm, and the average height is 130mm.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most of the multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than two years do not support 3D image projection, including the Hitachi CP-DW25WN.

We think you might also be interested in different projectors with a 3D image projection including the DW312, or the TW695 both from Optoma or the Mitsubishi Electric UD740U.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most of the similar spec data projectors that are more than two years old, including the CP-DW25WN, do not support Full HD projection.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the Mitsubishi Electric UD740U are also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other data projectors that came out more than two years ago, the Hitachi CP-DW25WN does not support WiFi connectivity.

It is worth also looking at alternative projectors with a WiFi connectivity including the BrightLink 436Wi ($1,861.72), the EB-430 LW, or the BrightLink Pro 1410Wi ($3,088.30) all from Epson.

Dim Projector Brightness

The CP-DW25WN has a quite dim projector brightness (only 2,500 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-DW25WN. Across all the comparable spec projectors that were released around the same time as the CP-DW25WN the projector brightnesses range from 1,300 ANSI lumens to 7,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,500 ANSI lumens.

If you want a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the EB-1400WI (2600 ANSI lumens and higher rated), the BrightLink 475WI (2600 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the VS220 (2700 ANSI lumens and higher rated) all from Epson.

Very Dim Brightness in Economy Mode

The dimmest brightness in economy mode of 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are more than two years old is 1,600 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 4,200 ANSI lumens. The CP-DW25WN has a quite dim brightness in economy mode (only 1,600 ANSI lumen) compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are more than two years old.

Chart Edit

Very Small Digital Zoom

Across all the data projectors of a similar spec and age to the CP-DW25WN the digital zooms range from 1.1x to 4x. The Hitachi CP-DW25WN has a quite small digital zoom (only 1.2 times zoom factor) compared to most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the CP-DW25WN.
