3 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker

The CP-EX250N has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Very High RMS Rated Power

Across all the multimedia projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the CP-EX250N the RMS rated power range from 1W to 19W. With an RMS rated power of 16 Watts, the CP-EX250N has a quite high RMS rated power compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the CP-EX250N.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

With a service life of lamp in economic mode of 6,000 hours, the Hitachi CP-EX250N has one of the longer service life of lamp in economic mode amongst 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age. Multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the CP-EX250N have service life of lamp in economic mode of between 2,500h and 10,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 4,200h.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-EX250N do not support Full HD projection. The CP-EX250N is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other projectors which also support Full HD projection to this multimedia projector and we think the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector ($499.00) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The CP-EX250N does not support 3D image projection, although keep in mind that most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the CP-EX250N also do not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The CP-EX250N does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other multimedia projectors that have been available for a similar time to the CP-EX250N also do not support WiFi connectivity.

It is worth also looking at other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro which also has a higher rating.

Very Dim Brightness in Economy Mode

The dimmest brightness in economy mode of 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the CP-EX250N is 1,400 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 5,400 ANSI lumens. At only 1,800 ANSI lumen, the Hitachi CP-EX250N has a quite dim brightness in economy mode compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that were released around the same time as the CP-EX250N.

Chart Edit

Very Small Lamp Power

The average lamp power of 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-EX250N is 320W. With a lamp power of only 215 Watts, the CP-EX250N has one of the smaller lamp power amongst 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Loud Noise Level

With a noise level of 38 decibels, the Hitachi CP-EX250N has a fairly loud noise level compared to most of the other projectors of this spec and age. Projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-EX250N have noise levels of between 28dB and 42dB, and the average noise level is 36dB.

If you don't mind having a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Hitachi CP-EW250N (38dB).

3 Other reasons to consider the Hitachi CP-EX250N

Released Over Three Years Ago

This 2000:1 contrast ratio projector has been on the market for over three years.

XGA (1024x768) Native Projector Resolution

This projector has a native projector resolution of XGA (1024x768), which is typical of many data projectors of a comparable spec and age to it.

Chart Edit

Average Projector Brightness

The CP-EX250N has a relatively standard projector brightness (2,700 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the CP-EX250N.

Other 2,700 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors currently available which you might also want to look at include because of it's better review score, the Hitachi CP-EX250.

If this data projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to look at the Epson D6155W (3,500 ANSI lumens), or the Canon WUX400ST ($6,879.73) (4,000 ANSI lumens) which is also higher rated.
