4 Reasons For

Supports Wi-Fi

The CP-AX3005 supports wi-Fi, which is unusual. Most of the other data projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-AX3005 do not support wi-Fi.

It is worth considering alternative projectors which also support wi-Fi including the Hitachi CP-WX5500.

Supports Full HD

Unlike most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched in the last 12 months which do not support full HD, the CP-AX3005 supports full HD.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The CP-AX3005 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-AX3005 also have a built-in speaker(s).

Chart Edit

Very Light

The average weight of data projectors that have been around for the last year is 9.5kg. The Hitachi CP-AX3005 is quite light (only 4.3 kilograms) compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the CP-AX3005.

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

The CP-AX3005 does not support 3D, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for a similar time to the CP-AX3005 also do not support 3D.

Chart Edit

Only XGA (1024x768) Projector Native Resolution

The CP-AX3005 has a maximum resolution of XGA (1024x768). That's 23% less resolution than the most common projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800).

An XGA (1024x768) projector native resolution is actually the worst resolution across all recently released multimedia projectors.

Across similar types of projector the best resolution is WUXGA (1920x1200).

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of only 3,300 ANSI lumens, the CP-AX3005 has one of the dimmer projector brightnesss amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age. The average projector brightness of new multimedia projectors is 5,200 ANSI lumens, and the projector brightnesss range from 450 ANSI lumens to 10,000 ANSI lumens.

We compared all the other 3,300 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors to this projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Epson PowerLite 585W ($1,130.99) is also worth considering.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to look at the Benq MX854UST (3,500 ANSI lumens), or the Optoma EH490 ($1,269.99) (4,600 ANSI lumens).

Only 525i Supported Video Modes

This projector supports a 480i|480p|525i|576i|625i supported video modes, which is the most commonly supported supported video modes on data projectors that came out in the last 12 months.

Very Short Service Life of Lamp

The service life of lamps of 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the CP-AX3005 range from 2,500h to 30,000h. With a service life of lamp of only 4,000 hours, the Hitachi CP-AX3005 has one of the shorter service life of lamps amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age.
