Most of the other latest latest projectors do not support Full HD projection, however the Hitachi ED-X30 supports Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other similar spec data projectors that were released in the last 12 months, the Hitachi ED-X30 has a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Two Headphone Outputs

Most latest data projectors have between one and two headphone outputs, including the Hitachi ED-X30 which has two headphone outputs.

Chart Edit

Supports Five Video Modes

The Hitachi ED-X30 has a greater number of supported video mode than most similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to it. This data projector supports a 720p video mode, which is the most commonly supported video mode supported by latest projectors that were launched in the last year. The video modes "1080i", "480i", "480p" and "576p" are also supported by this Hitachi projector.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Hitachi ED-X30 does not support 3D image projection, although this is within the context that most of the other latest projectors that were released in the last year also do not support 3D image projection.

There are a number of alternative projectors with a 3D image projection which you might want to consider including the DELL 1220 Projector ($243.99), the Barco PFWU-51B, or the Optoma S310.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Projector Brightness

The projector brightnesses of new similar spec projectors range from 110 ANSI lumens to 85,000 ANSI lumens. The Hitachi ED-X30 has one of the dimmer projector brightnesses (only 1,500 ANSI lumen) amongst latest projectors of this age.

If this Hitachi projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to consider the Benq W1350 (2500 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the DELL 1220 Projector ($243.99) (2700 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

Very Short Lamp Service Life

At only 2,000 hours, the Hitachi ED-X30 has a fairly short lamp service life compared to most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the ED-X30. Across all the newly released similar spec projectors the lamp service lives range from 1,500h to 30,000h.

Very Short Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

The Hitachi ED-X30 has one of the shorter service life of lamp in economic mode (only 3,000 hours) amongst latest projectors of this age. The shortest service life of lamp in economic mode of latest projectors that are a similar age to the ED-X30 is 2,000h, the longest is 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 5,400h.

Chart Edit

Very Small Number of Colours

The numbers of colours of similar spec projectors that came out in the last 12 months range from 1M to 1,100M. With a number of colours of only 16.7 million, the Hitachi ED-X30 has one of the smaller numbers of colours amongst multimedia projectors of this age.

2 Other reasons to consider the Hitachi ED-X30

Average Noise Level

With a noise level of 35 decibels, the Hitachi ED-X30 has a relatively typical noise level compared to most of the other latest projectors that are a comparable age to the ED-X30.

Different 35dB noise level projectors which you might want to also look at include the Panasonic PT-EW640 which have a better Kagoo Rating™.

XGA (1024x768) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the Hitachi ED-X30 is XGA (1024x768). That's 23% less resolution than the most frequently found native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800).

We think you might also be interested in different data projectors that have a resolution of XGA (1024x768) including the X122, or the X123 ($245.99) both from Acer which have a better Kagoo Rating™.

If you would prefer a projector with a higher resolution then you might want to also look at the Vivitek Qumi Q4 ($365.08) (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated), the DELL S510 ($1,033.99) (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated), or the [plb_2752124] (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated).
