7 Reasons For

Supports 3D

The Hitachi CP-DX301 supports 3D, as do most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to the CP-DX301.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which support 3D to this projector and we think the NEC NP-V302H ($769.56) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

It is worth considering alternative multimedia projectors which also support 3D including the V302H, or the M323H both from NEC.

Supports Full HD

Like most of the other projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-DX301, the CP-DX301 supports full HD.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other data projectors which support full HD and we think the NEC NP-V302H ($769.56) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Alternative projectors which also support full HD that you might want to consider include the V302H, or the M323H both from NEC.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The CP-DX301 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other projectors that have been around for more than a year also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think because of it's better review score, the NEC NP-V302H ($769.56) is also worth considering.

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantitys

The CP-DX301 is a three VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity projector. Most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the CP-DX301 only have two VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level

Projectors of a similar type and age to the CP-DX301 have noise levels of between 31dB and 36dB, and the average noise level is 35dB. The Hitachi CP-DX301 has one of the quieter noise levels (only 31 decibels) amongst 8000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age.

If you don't mind having a louder noise level then you might want to consider the NEC V302H (35dB).

Very Quiet Noise Level (economic Mode)

At only 29 decibels, the Hitachi CP-DX301 has a quite quiet noise level (economic mode) compared to most of the other data projectors of this age and type. 8000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-DX301 have noise level (economic mode)s of between 29dB and 32dB.

Chart Edit

Very Light

The lightest 8000:1 contrast ratio projector that was launched around the same time as the CP-DX301 is 2.2kg heavy, the heaviest is 7.6kg, and the average weight is 4.5kg. With a weight of only 2.2 kilograms, the Hitachi CP-DX301 is quite light compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the CP-DX301.

Chart Edit

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Hitachi CP-DX301 does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other data projectors of this age and spec also do not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Projector Brightness

The average projector brightness of 8000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for more than a year is 3,100 ANSI lumens, and the projector brightnesss range from 3,000 ANSI lumens to 3,200 ANSI lumens. At only 3,000 ANSI lumens, the CP-DX301 has a quite dim projector brightness compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the CP-DX301.

Alternative 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors currently available which you might want to look at include the NEC NP-V302H ($769.56) which has better reviews.

If this data projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to consider the NEC M323H (3,200 ANSI lumens).

Very Small Bulb Power

The CP-DX301 has a fairly small bulb power (only 196 Watts) compared to most of the other data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the CP-DX301. The smallest bulb power of 8000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched around the same time as the CP-DX301 is 190W, the biggest is 280W, and the average bulb power is 240W.

Chart Edit

Very Low RMS Rated Power

Projectors of this age and spec have RMS rated powers of between 2W and 20W, and the average RMS rated power is 13W. The CP-DX301 has one of the lower RMS rated powers (only 2 Watts) amongst comparable spec projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Only 625i Supported Video Modes

This data projector supports a 480i|480p|525i|576i|625i|1080i|1080p supported video modes, which is typical of many data projectors that were launched more than a year ago.

Chart Edit

Only One HDMI Ports Quantity

Most data projectors of this age and type have one HDMI ports quantity, including the Hitachi CP-DX301 which has one HDMI ports quantity.

Chart Edit

Very Small Optical Zoom

Across all the data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the CP-DX301 the optical zooms range from 1x to 1.7x, and the average optical zoom is 1.3x. The Hitachi CP-DX301 has a quite small optical zoom (only 1.1 times zoom factor) compared to most of the other data projectors that were released one year ago.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Matrix Size

The smallest matrix size of similar spec multimedia projectors that have been around for more than a year is 0.45" and the biggest is 0.96". The Hitachi CP-DX301 has a quite small matrix size (only 0.55 inches) compared to most of the other data projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-DX301.

2 Other reasons to consider the Hitachi CP-DX301

Released Over a Year Ago

It was over a year ago when Hitachi released the CP-DX301.

XGA (1024x768) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the CP-DX301 is XGA (1024x768). That's 62% less resolution than a 1080p (1920x1080) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution.
