10 Reasons For

Supports Full HD Projection

The CP-EW300 supports Full HD projection. Most of the other projectors of this spec and age do not support Full HD projection.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the CP-CX250, or the CP-DH300 both from Hitachi or the Sony VPLFH31 ($3,029.95) is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other comparable spec projectors that were launched more than two years ago, the CP-EW300 has a built-in speaker.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including a cheaper multimedia projector such as the DELL 4220 or you might consider a higher scoring multimedia projector such as the Epson EB-1771.

Alternative multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker that you might also want to look at include the Hitachi CP-CX250.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The CP-EW300 supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of the most common graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this projector). This data projector also support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). The best resolution of all 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out more than two years ago is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) and the worst is 640 x 480 (VGA).

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

The CP-EW300 has a maximum resolution of WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than the most common native projector resolution of XGA (1024x768). The worst resolution of all 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the CP-EW300 is XGA (1024x768) and the best is WUXGA (1920x1200).

Chart Edit

Three Component Video in Ports

The Hitachi CP-EW300 has more component video in ports than most of the multimedia projectors of this spec and age. Most of the multimedia projectors of this spec and age only have between one and two component video in ports, however this multimedia projector has three component video in ports.

Chart Edit

Two USB 2.0 Ports

Most 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out around the same time as the CP-EW300 have between one and two USB 2.0 ports, including the Hitachi CP-EW300 which has two USB 2.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Lamp Service Life

The shortest lamp service life of multimedia projectors of this type and age is 200h and the longest is 30,000h. At 5,000 hours, the Hitachi CP-EW300 has a fairly long lamp service life compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the CP-EW300.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

The CP-EW300 has one of the longer service life of lamp in economic mode (6,000 hours) amongst projectors of this age. Projectors of a comparable type and age to the CP-EW300 have service life of lamp in economic mode of between 2,500h and 10,000h.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode

The average noise level in economy mode of comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the CP-EW300 is 30dB. The Hitachi CP-EW300 has one of the quieter noise levels in economy mode (only 29 decibels) amongst multimedia projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Light

The lightest multimedia projector that came out around the same time as the CP-EW300 is 370g heavy, the heaviest is 23kg, and the average weight is 6.4kg. At only 2.9 kilograms, the CP-EW300 is quite light compared to most of the other projectors that came out around the same time as the CP-EW300.

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other projectors of a comparable type and age to the CP-EW300, the CP-EW300 does not support 3D image projection.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support 3D image projection to this data projector and we think the Hitachi CP-DH300, the Vivitek D5110W-WNL, or the Optoma EH505 is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The CP-EW300 does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the CP-EW300 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Very Low RMS Rated Power

The CP-EW300 has one of the lower RMS rated power (only 1 Watt) amongst comparable spec multimedia projectors of this age. Across all the 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for a similar time to the CP-EW300 the RMS rated power range from 1W to 19W.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Brightness in Economy Mode

The average brightness in economy mode of 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the CP-EW300 is 3,000 ANSI lumens. With a brightness in economy mode of only 2,000 ANSI lumens, the Hitachi CP-EW300 has one of the dimmer brightness in economy mode amongst projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Port

Most comparable spec data projectors that were launched around the same time as the CP-EW300 have between one and three VGA (D-Sub) ports, including the CP-EW300 which has one VGA (D-Sub) port.

Chart Edit

Very Small Lamp Power

The lamp power of similar spec multimedia projectors that have been around for more than two years range from 170W to 4,000W, and the average lamp power is 320W. With a lamp power of only 225 Watts, the Hitachi CP-EW300 has a quite small lamp power compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released around the same time as the CP-EW300.

Chart Edit

Only One Audio in Port

The Hitachi CP-EW300 is a one audio in port projector. Most of the other multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago have between one and two audio in ports.

Chart Edit

3 Other reasons to consider the Hitachi CP-EW300

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was over three years ago when Hitachi released the CP-EW300.

Average Noise Level

At 37 decibels, the CP-EW300 has a relatively average noise level compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the CP-EW300.

There are a number of alternative 37dB noise level data projectors currently available that you might want to look at including the Hitachi CP-EX300 which is cheaper.

Multimedia projectors with a louder noise level that might also be worth considering include the Sony VPLFH31 ($3,029.95) (37dB), or the Hitachi CP-CX250 (37dB).

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Hitachi CP-EW300 has a fairly standard projector brightness compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the CP-EW300.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors currently available including the Epson EB-1771 which has better reviews.

If this 2000:1 contrast ratio projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to consider the Panasonic PT-EW540 (5,000 ANSI lumens) which is also higher rated.
