9 Reasons For

Supports Full HD Projection

The CP-TW2505 supports Full HD projection, as do most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than a year.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative projectors which support Full HD projection currently available including a cheaper projector such as the PT-VW355N[pl_3496571_price], or the PT-VX425N[pl_3430009_price] both from Panasonic or you might consider a higher scoring projector such as the Benq W1350[plb_2750779_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker

The CP-TW2505 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other multimedia projectors that were launched more than a year ago.

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker to this multimedia projector and we think cheaper multimedia projectors such as the Panasonic PT-VW355N[plb_3496571_price], and the Benq MW855UST[plb_3333837_price] is also worth considering.

Alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker that you might also want to consider include the Hitachi CP -AW3005[plb_3406373_price].

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most of the other comparable spec projectors that were released around the same time as the CP-TW2505 support 3D image projection, however the CP-TW2505 does not support 3D image projection.

We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D image projection to this data projector and we think the Panasonic PT-VW355N[plb_3496571_price], or the Benq MW855UST[plb_3333837_price] is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Hitachi CP-TW2505 does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-TW2505 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a WiFi connectivity and we think the PT-VW355N[pl_3496571_price], or the PT-VX425N[pl_3430009_price] both from Panasonic is also worth considering.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The dimmest projector brightness of 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the CP-TW2505 is 600 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 12,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,600 ANSI lumens. The Hitachi CP-TW2505 has one of the dimmer projector brightness (only 2,700 ANSI lumens) amongst data projectors of this age.
