6 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker

The CP-EW250N has a built-in speaker. Most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been available for more than two years also have a built-in speaker.

There are a number of other projectors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might also want to look at including the LV-7490[pl_1627935_price], or the LV-7292[pl_1517999_price] both from Canon which is cheaper.

We think you might also be interested in other multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the Hitachi CP-EX300[plb_1885822_price].

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The Hitachi CP-EW250N supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) multimedia projector, which is the most common resolution supported by data projectors that came out more than two years ago. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this data projector. This multimedia projector also support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). Across all data projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the CP-EW250N the best resolution is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) and the worst is 640 x 480 (VGA).

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

The Hitachi CP-EW250N has a maximum resolution of WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than a XGA (1024x768) data projector, which is the most common resolution. Across all 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the CP-EW250N the worst resolution is XGA (1024x768) and the best is WUXGA (1920x1200).

Very Bright Lamp Power in Economic Mode

When compared to other comparable spec projectors that have been around for a similar time to the CP-EW250N that we have checked, the CP-EW250N's lamp power in economic mode of 6,000 Watts is one of the brightest. Across all the 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago the lamp powers in economic mode range from 140W to 6,000W.

Chart Edit

Very High RMS Rated Power

Across all the projectors that have been around for more than two years the RMS rated power range from 1W to 19W, and the average RMS rated power is 6.9W. With an RMS rated power of 16 Watts, the CP-EW250N has one of the highest RMS rated power amongst 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Lamp Service Life

The CP-EW250N has one of the longer lamp service lives (5,000 hours) amongst 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age. The lamp service lives of 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the CP-EW250N range from 200h to 30,000h, and the average lamp service life is 5,300h.

9 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released around the same time as the CP-EW250N, the CP-EW250N does not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other projectors of this type and age, the CP-EW250N does not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most projectors that have been around for more than two years do not support WiFi connectivity. The CP-EW250N is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

Across all the comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the CP-EW250N the projector brightness range from 110 ANSI lumens to 10,000 ANSI lumens. The CP-EW250N has one of the dimmer projector brightness (only 2,500 ANSI lumens) amongst 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age.

If you would prefer a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to look at the Panasonic PT-EW540[plb_2592970_price] (5,000 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.

Very Dim Brightness in Economy Mode

The average brightness in economy mode of data projectors of this age and spec is 3,000 ANSI lumens, and the brightness in economy mode range from 1,400 ANSI lumens to 5,400 ANSI lumens. At only 2,000 ANSI lumens, the CP-EW250N has a quite dim brightness in economy mode compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable type and age to the CP-EW250N.

Chart Edit

Very Small Lamp Power

With a lamp power of only 225 Watts, the CP-EW250N has one of the smaller lamp power amongst data projectors of this age. The average lamp power of 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for a similar time to the CP-EW250N is 320W.

Chart Edit

Only One USB 2.0 Port

The CP-EW250N is a one USB 2.0 port projector. Most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for more than two years have between one and two USB 2.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Only One Audio in Port

The CP-EW250N is a one audio in port data projector.

Chart Edit

Very Small Matrix Size

The Hitachi CP-EW250N has a fairly small matrix size (only 0.59 inches) compared to most of the other data projectors that came out around the same time as the CP-EW250N. The matrix sizes of multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the CP-EW250N range from 0.45" to 55", and the average matrix size is 1.7".
