7 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago, the CP-EX300 has a built-in speaker.

There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available which you might want to look at including the Panasonic PT-EW540 which has better reviews; or the Hitachi CP-EW250N which is cheaper.

We compared all the other projectors which also have a built-in speaker to this projector and we think the Epson EB-1751 is also worth considering.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the CP-EX300 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). This projector also support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for a similar time to the CP-EX300 graphics resolutions range from 640 x 480 (VGA) (worst) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) (best).

Chart Edit

Quite Long Lamp Service Life

The CP-EX300 has a quite long lamp service life (5,000 hours) compared to most of the other projectors that were launched more than two years ago. The lamp service lives of projectors of a comparable type and age to the CP-EX300 range from 200h to 30,000h.

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 CP-EX300 has a quite long service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out more than two years ago. Multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the CP-EX300 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.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode

The CP-EX300 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 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released around the same time as the CP-EX300 the noise levels in economy mode range from 26dB to 37dB, and the average noise level in economy mode is 30dB.

Chart Edit

Narrow

The narrowest 2000:1 contrast ratio projector that has been available for a comparable time to the CP-EX300 is 120mm wide and the widest is 540mm. At only 320 millimeters, the CP-EX300 is fairly narrow compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for more than two years.

Chart Edit

Very Light

The lightest projector of a similar age and spec to the CP-EX300 is 370g heavy and the heaviest is 23kg. With a weight of only 2.9 kilograms, the CP-EX300 is quite light compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age.

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-EX300 do not support Full HD projection. The CP-EX300 is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might also want to consider including the Hitachi CP-EW300.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The CP-EX300 does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been around for around the same time as the CP-EX300 also do not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The CP-EX300 does not support WiFi connectivity, although keep in mind that most of the other data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the CP-EX300 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Quite Low RMS Rated Power

Across all the multimedia projectors of this spec and age the RMS rated power range from 1W to 19W, and the average RMS rated power is 6.9W. The CP-EX300 has one of the lowest RMS rated power (only 1 Watt) amongst projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Port

Most data projectors of a similar age and spec to the CP-EX300 have between one and three VGA (D-Sub) ports, including the CP-EX300 which has one VGA (D-Sub) port.

Chart Edit

Very Small Lamp Power

With a lamp power of only 215 Watts, the CP-EX300 has a quite small lamp power compared to most of the other projectors of this spec and age. 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the CP-EX300 have lamp power of between 170W and 4,000W, and the average lamp power is 320W.

Chart Edit

Only One USB 2.0 Port

Most similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-EX300 have between one and two USB 2.0 ports, including the CP-EX300 which has one USB 2.0 port.

Chart Edit

Only One Audio in Port

Most 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago have between one and two audio in ports, including the Hitachi CP-EX300 which has one audio in port.

4 Other reasons to consider the Hitachi CP-EX300

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was over three years ago when this projector was released.

Average Noise Level

With a noise level of 37 decibels, the CP-EX300 has a relatively average noise level compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that came out around the same time as the CP-EX300.

Multimedia projectors with a louder noise level that might be worth looking at include the LV-7490 (35dB), or the LV-7292 (36.4dB) both from Canon which is also cheaper.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,200 ANSI lumens, the Hitachi CP-EX300 has a pretty typical projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to the CP-EX300.

If this projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to look at the Panasonic PT-EW540 (5,000 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.
