5 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker

The CPAW2505 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other data projectors of a similar age and spec to the CPAW2505 also have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker to this projector and we think cheaper data projectors such as the Hitachi CPX4041WN[plb_3393438_price] is also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the NEC M403W[plb_3078396_price], or the Acer P1515[plb_2417211_price].

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The Hitachi CPAW2505 has more VGA (D-Sub) ports than most of the 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the CPAW2505. Most of the 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the CPAW2505 only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports, however this projector has three VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Two Audio in Ports

Most projectors that have been available for more than a year have between one and two audio in ports, including the Hitachi CPAW2505 which has two audio in ports.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Lamp Service Life

The average lamp service life of multimedia projectors of this age and type is 6,500h. The CPAW2505 has one of the longer lamp service lives (10,000 hours) amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age.

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most commonly found AC input voltage on data projectors of this age and type.

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most of the other projectors of a similar type and age to the CPAW2505 support 3D image projection, however the CPAW2505 does not support 3D image projection.

It is worth also looking at other projectors which also support 3D image projection including the NEC M403W[plb_3078396_price], the Acer P1515[plb_2417211_price], or the Panasonic PT-VX425N[plb_3430009_price].

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most of the other projectors of this type and age support Full HD projection, however the CPAW2505 does not support Full HD projection.

Alternative projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might want to look at include the NEC M403W[plb_3078396_price], the Acer P1515[plb_2417211_price], or the Panasonic PT-VX425N[plb_3430009_price].

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for a similar time to the CPAW2505, the CPAW2505 does not support WiFi connectivity.

There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors which also support WiFi connectivity that you might want to consider including the PT-VX425N[pl_3430009_price], or the PT-VW355N[pl_3496571_price] both from Panasonic.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of only 2,700 ANSI lumens, the CPAW2505 has one of the dimmer projector brightness amongst projectors of this age. The average projector brightness of 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the CPAW2505 is 3,600 ANSI lumens, and the projector brightness range from 600 ANSI lumens to 12,000 ANSI lumens.

We compared this data projector to all the other 2,700 ANSI lumens brightness projectors and we think cheaper multimedia projectors such as the Hitachi CP -AX2505[plb_3406374_price] is also worth considering.

Data projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth considering include the Hitachi CPWX3541WN[plb_3869046_price] (3,700 ANSI lumens) which is also cheaper.

Quite Dim Brightness in Economy Mode

With a brightness in economy mode of only 1,800 ANSI lumen, the CPAW2505 has one of the dimmer brightness in economy mode amongst data projectors of this age. The brightness in economy mode of 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the CPAW2505 range from 400 ANSI lumens to 3,200 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Very Small Digital Zoom

Across all the multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the CPAW2505 the digital zooms range from 1.1x to 2x. At only 1.35 times zoom factor, the CPAW2505 has a quite small digital zoom compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the CPAW2505.

3 Other reasons to consider the Hitachi CPAW2505

Released Over a Year Ago

This data projector was released over a year ago.

Average Noise Level

The CPAW2505 has a fairly average noise level (37 decibels) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the CPAW2505.

We compared this data projector to all the other 37dB noise level data projectors and we think the Panasonic PT-VX420[plb_3723242_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If you would consider a projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the PT-VW355N[pl_3496571_price] (37dB), or the PT-VX425N[pl_3430009_price] (37dB) both from Panasonic.
