6 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker

The CP-X2530 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Two DisplayPorts

The Hitachi CP-X2530 has more DisplayPorts than most of the projectors that have been around for a similar time to the CP-X2530. This Hitachi projector is a two DisplayPort data projector compared to most of the similar spec multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago which only have one DisplayPort.

Chart Edit

Three USB 2.0 Ports

The CP-X2530 has more USB 2.0 ports than most of the similar spec projectors that were released more than two years ago. Most of the 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the CP-X2530 only have between one and two USB 2.0 ports, however this data projector has three USB 2.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports

The CP-X2530 is a two HDMI port projector. Most of the other projectors of this age and type only have one HDMI port.

Chart Edit

Quite High RMS Rated Power

At 16 Watts, the CP-X2530 has a quite high RMS rated power compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and spec to the CP-X2530. The RMS rated power of comparable spec multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the CP-X2530 range from 2W to 16W.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Lamp Service Life

The average lamp service life of 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched more than two years ago is 4,700h. The CP-X2530 has a quite long lamp service life (5,000 hours) compared to most of the other projectors of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most similar spec data projectors that have been available for more than two years do not support WiFi connectivity. The CP-X2530 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this projector and we think the L51W, or the NP-P451 ($1,451.18) both from NEC which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago do not support 3D image projection. The Hitachi CP-X2530 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D image projection.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a 3D image projection and we think the NEC L51W which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the CP-X2530, the CP-X2530 does not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The average projector brightness of 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-X2530 is 3,700 ANSI lumens, and the projector brightness range from 500 ANSI lumens to 13,000 ANSI lumens. At only 2,700 ANSI lumens, the Hitachi CP-X2530 has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Brightness in Economy Mode

The CP-X2530 has a fairly dim brightness in economy mode (only 1,800 ANSI lumen) compared to most of the other data projectors of this age and type. The dimmest brightness in economy mode of comparable spec data projectors that were released more than two years ago is 1,500 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 3,000 ANSI lumens, and the average brightness in economy mode is 2,100 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Fairly Loud Noise Level

Projectors of this age and type have noise levels of between 29dB and 42dB. The CP-X2530 has a fairly loud noise level (37 decibels) compared to most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the CP-X2530.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 37dB noise level multimedia projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the NEC NP-P451 ($1,451.18).

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Port

The CP-X2530 is a one VGA (D-Sub) port projector.
