7 Reasons For

Supports Full HD

Unlike most of the other similar spec data projectors that were released around the same time as the CP-CX251N which do not support full HD, the CP-CX251N supports full HD.

It is worth also looking at other projectors which also support full HD including the DELL 1850[plb_3307742_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Hitachi CP-CX251N has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the CP-CX251N also have a built-in speaker(s).

Other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available that you might want to consider include cheaper data projectors such as the DELL 4220[plb_3820929_price].

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the DELL 1850[plb_3307742_price] is also worth considering.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the CP-CX251N is 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over four times the resolution of the most frequently found supported graphics resolutions of 800 x 600 (SVGA) (which is also supported by this Hitachi projector). In addition, this data projector support supported graphics resolutionss of 640 x 480 (VGA), 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA) and 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 1440 x 900 (WXGA+). The resolution of all comparable spec projectors that have been available for a similar time to the CP-CX251N ranges from 640 x 350 to 3840 x 2160.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantitys

Most of the other projectors that came out around the same time as the CP-CX251N only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys, however the Hitachi CP-CX251N has three VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys.

10 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most similar spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the CP-CX251N do not support wi-Fi. The Hitachi CP-CX251N is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D

The Hitachi CP-CX251N does not support 3D, although it is worth noting that most of the other multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-CX251N also do not support 3D.

There are a number of other data projectors which also support 3D that you might also want to consider including the DELL 1850[plb_3307742_price].
