Quite High RMS Rated Power

Projectors that have been available for more than two years have RMS rated power of between 2W and 16W, and the average RMS rated power is 9.4W. At 16 Watts, the CP-TW2503 has a quite high RMS rated power compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

At 6,000 hours, the CP-TW2503 has a quite long service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched more than two years ago. Across all the multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the CP-TW2503 the service life of lamp in economic mode range from 2,500h to 10,000h.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The CP-TW2503 does not support 3D image projection, although this is within the context that most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for more than two years also do not support 3D image projection.

We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D image projection to this multimedia projector and we think the PowerLite W16[pl_2384315_price], the Z8455WUNL[pl_1838281_price], or the PowerLite W16SK[pl_2397615_price] all from Epson is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of only 2,700 ANSI lumens, the Hitachi CP-TW2503 has one of the dimmer projector brightness amongst data projectors of this age. Across all the multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than two years the projector brightness range from 2,000 ANSI lumens to 10,000 ANSI lumens.

Alternative 2,700 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available which you might also want to consider include the Hitachi CP-AX2503[plb_2298359_price] which has better reviews.

If you would prefer a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the CP-TW3003[pl_2516774_price] (3,300 ANSI lumens), or the CP-AX3503[pl_3020951_price] (3,600 ANSI lumens) both from Hitachi.

3 Other reasons to consider the Hitachi CP-TW2503

Released Over Two Years Ago

Hitachi released the CP-TW2503 over two years ago.

Average Noise Level

At 36 decibels, the Hitachi CP-TW2503 has a pretty standard noise level compared to most of the other projectors that have been on the market for more than two years.

We compared this projector to all the other 36dB noise level projectors and we think the Epson PowerLite W16[plb_2384315_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Alternative projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the CP-TW3003[pl_2516774_price] (36dB), or the CP-AX3003[pl_2415583_price] (36dB) both from Hitachi.
