9 Reasons For

Very Bright Projector Brightness

Multimedia projectors of this spec and age have projector brightness of between 100 ANSI lumens and 8,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,500 ANSI lumens. At 7,000 ANSI lumens, the CP-X8170 has a very bright projector brightness compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

This data projector supports a graphics resolution of 1024 x 768 (XGA)|1280 x 1024 (SXGA)|1280 x 768 (WXGA)|1400 x 1050 (SXGA+)|1440 x 900 (WXGA+)|1600 x 1200 (UXGA)|640 x 480 (VGA), which is the most frequently supported graphics resolution on similar spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Three Component Video in Ports

Most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the CP-X8170 only have between one and two component video in ports, however the CP-X8170 has three component video in ports.

Chart Edit

Fairly High Maximum Horizontal Synchronization

The lowest maximum horizontal synchronization of data projectors of a comparable type and age to the CP-X8170 is 91kHz, the highest is 110kHz, and the average maximum horizontal synchronization is 97kHz. The CP-X8170 has one of the higher maximum horizontal synchronization (106 kilohertz) amongst similar spec data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Three USB 2.0 Ports

The Hitachi CP-X8170 has more USB 2.0 ports than most of the projectors of a similar spec and age to the CP-X8170. Most of the similar spec projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the CP-X8170 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-X8170 is a two HDMI port data projector.

Chart Edit

Very Big Lamp Power

At 365 Watts, the Hitachi CP-X8170 has a very big lamp power compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the CP-X8170. The average lamp power of projectors of a comparable age and spec to the CP-X8170 is 240W.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Transfer Rate

This data projector has a 100 Mbit/s ethernet LAN data transfer rate, which is the most frequently found ethernet LAN data transfer rate on 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as it.

9 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The CP-X8170 does not have a built-in speaker. Most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been around for around the same time as the CP-X8170 do have a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in other multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the EB-1410[pl_1851959_price], or the EB-1400WI[pl_1851960_price] both from Epson or the Hitachi CP-WU8440[plb_1857317_price].

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The CP-X8170 does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the CP-X8170 also do not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The CP-X8170 does not support Full HD projection, although it is worth noting that most of the other projectors of this type and age also do not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The CP-X8170 does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years 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 EB-1410[pl_1851959_price], or the EB-1400WI[pl_1851960_price] both from Epson which is also cheaper is also worth considering.

Quite Short Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

At only 2,500 hours, the CP-X8170 has a fairly short service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other data projectors of a similar type and age to the CP-X8170. The shortest service life of lamp in economic mode of multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago is 230h and the longest is 20,000h.

Chart Edit

Very Short Lamp Service Life

3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the CP-X8170 have lamp service lives of between 1,500h and 30,000h. The CP-X8170 has one of the shorter lamp service lives (only 2,000 hours) amongst comparable spec projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Loud Noise Level

The quietest noise level of projectors that were released around the same time as the CP-X8170 is 26dB and the loudest is 45dB. With a noise level of 39 decibels, the CP-X8170 has one of the louder noise levels amongst comparable spec projectors of this age.

If you would consider a projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the EB-1400WI[pl_1851960_price] (35dB), or the EB-1410[pl_1851959_price] (35dB) both from Epson which is also cheaper.
