6 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The CP-EW250N has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-EW250N.

There are a number of alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) that you might also want to look at including the CP-EX300, or the CP-EW300 both from Hitachi or the Epson EB-1751.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the CP-EW250N is 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of the most frequently found supported graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this data projector). This multimedia projector also support supported graphics resolutionss of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). Across all projectors of a comparable age and type to the CP-EW250N the worst resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution

The Hitachi CP-EW250N has a maximum resolution of WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than a XGA (1024x768) multimedia projector, which is the most frequently found resolution. The worst resolution of all similar spec data projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-EW250N is XGA (1024x768) and the best is WUXGA (1920x1200).

Chart Edit

Very Bright Lamp Power (economic Mode)

When compared to other data projectors of this age and type that we have assessed, the lamp power (economic mode) of the CP-EW250N of 6,000 Watts is one of the brightest. Across all the 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the CP-EW250N the lamp power (economic mode)s range from 140W to 6,000W.

Chart Edit

Very High RMS Rated Power

The RMS rated power of the CP-EW250N of 16 Watts is one of the highest amongst 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the CP-EW250N. The lowest RMS rated power of 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the CP-EW250N is 1W and the highest is 19W.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp

The average service life of lamp of projectors of a comparable age and spec to the CP-EW250N is 5,200h. At 5,000 hours, the CP-EW250N has a quite long service life of lamp compared to most of the other projectors that were released more than two years ago.

10 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

The CP-EW250N 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-EW250N also do not support full HD.

We compared all the other projectors which also support full HD to this data projector and we think the Hitachi CP-EW300 is also worth considering.

Does Not Support 3D

Like most of the other projectors that have been on the market for more than two years, the CP-EW250N does not support 3D.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The CP-EW250N does not support wi-Fi, although keep in mind that most of the other projectors that have been on the market for more than two years also do not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

At only 2,500 ANSI lumens, the Hitachi CP-EW250N has a quite dim projector brightness compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that are a similar age to the CP-EW250N. The average projector brightness of comparable spec projectors that have been around for a similar time to the CP-EW250N is 4,100 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Projector Brightness (economic Mode)

With a projector brightness (economic mode) of only 2,000 ANSI lumens, the CP-EW250N has one of the dimmer projector brightness (economic mode)s amongst multimedia projectors of this age. Similar spec data projectors that were released around the same time as the CP-EW250N have projector brightness (economic mode)s of between 1,400 ANSI lumens and 5,400 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Very Small Bulb Power

At only 225 Watts, the Hitachi CP-EW250N has a fairly small bulb power compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the CP-EW250N. The bulb powers of comparable spec projectors that have been around for a similar time to the CP-EW250N range from 170W to 4,000W, and the average bulb power is 320W.

Chart Edit

Fairly Loud Noise Level

The CP-EW250N has one of the louder noise levels (38 decibels) amongst 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. Comparable spec data projectors that have been on the market for more than two years have noise levels of between 28dB and 42dB.

Multimedia projectors with a louder noise level that might be worth considering include the CP-EW300 (37dB), or the CP-EX300 (37dB) both from Hitachi or the Epson EB-1751 (40dB).

Only One USB 2.0 Ports Quantity

The CP-EW250N is a one USB 2.0 ports quantity projector. Most of the other data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the CP-EW250N have between one and two USB 2.0 ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Only One Audio (L,R) in

The CP-EW250N is a one audio (L,R) in projector. Most of the other projectors that were released around the same time as the CP-EW250N have between one and two audio (L,R) ins.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Matrix Size

The smallest matrix size of 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the CP-EW250N is 0.45" and the biggest is 0.8". The CP-EW250N has one of the smaller matrix sizes (only 0.59 inches) amongst 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.
