5 Reasons For

Supports Wi-Fi

The CP-AW2505 supports wi-Fi. Most of the other data projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the CP-AW2505 do not support wi-Fi.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which support wi-Fi to this multimedia projector and we think the Epson EX7235[plb_3060914_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

We compared all the other projectors which also support wi-Fi to this multimedia projector and we think the Epson EB-945H[plb_3077398_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the CP-AW2505, the CP-AW2505 has a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this multimedia projector and we think the Epson EX7235[plb_3060914_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Very High Horizontal Synchronization (max)

With a horizontal synchronization (max) of 106 kilohertz, the CP-AW2505 has a very high horizontal synchronization (max) compared to most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and type to the CP-AW2505. 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released one year ago have horizontal synchronization (max)s of between 100kHz and 110kHz.

Chart Edit

Fairly High Vertical Synchronization (max)

The average vertical synchronization (max) of similar spec multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-AW2505 is 52kHz, and the vertical synchronization (max)s range from 0.085kHz to 120kHz. The CP-AW2505 has a quite high vertical synchronization (max) (120 kilohertz) compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that were launched around the same time as the CP-AW2505.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantitys

Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the CP-AW2505 only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys, however the Hitachi CP-AW2505 has three VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys.

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

Most projectors of this spec and age do not support 3D. The CP-AW2505 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D.

Other multimedia projectors which also support 3D that you might also want to look at include the Epson Home Cinema 600[plb_3077179_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Full HD

The Hitachi CP-AW2505 does not support full HD, although it is worth noting that most of the other projectors of a comparable type and age to the CP-AW2505 also do not support full HD.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The CP-AW2505 has a fairly dim projector brightness (only 2,700 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other data projectors of a similar age and type to the CP-AW2505. The dimmest projector brightness of 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the CP-AW2505 is 600 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 12,000 ANSI lumens.

We compared this projector to all the other 2,700 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors and we think because of it's better review score, the Epson PowerLite X27[plb_2896329_price] is also worth considering.

If this data projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to look at the P1500[pl_3806777_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens), or the H6517ST[pl_3929999_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens) both from Acer which is also higher rated.

Very Small Digital Zoom

The Hitachi CP-AW2505 has a quite small digital zoom (only 1.35 times zoom factor) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and spec. The average digital zoom of projectors that were released around the same time as the CP-AW2505 is 1.8x, and the digital zooms range from 1.1x to 2x.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim White Light Output

The average white light output of comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been available for more than a year is 3,100 ANSI lumens. With a white light output of only 2,700 ANSI lumens, the CP-AW2505 has one of the dimmer white light outputs amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Colour Light Output

The average colour light output of multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type to the CP-AW2505 is 3,100 ANSI lumens, and the colour light outputs range from 2,100 ANSI lumens to 4,100 ANSI lumens. The Hitachi CP-AW2505 has a fairly dim colour light output (only 2,700 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other projectors of a similar type and age to the CP-AW2505.

Chart Edit

Quite Loud Noise Level (economic Mode)

At 32 decibels, the Hitachi CP-AW2505 has a quite loud noise level (economic mode) compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-AW2505. The quietest noise level (economic mode) of 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the CP-AW2505 is 26dB and the loudest is 43dB.

3 Other reasons to consider the Hitachi CP-AW2505

Released Over a Year Ago

This Hitachi data projector has been on the market for over a year.

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution

The CP-AW2505 has a maximum resolution of WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than a XGA (1024x768) projector, which is the most common resolution.

Chart Edit

Average Noise Level

At 34 decibels, the CP-AW2505 has a fairly typical noise level compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-AW2505.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 34dB noise level data projectors currently available including the Benq W1350[plb_2750779_price] which has better reviews.

Data projectors with a louder noise level that might be worth considering include the NEC U321H[plb_3095041_price] (34dB), or the Ricoh PJ X2240[plb_2938029_price] (34dB).
