10 Reasons For

Supports Full HD

The CP-EW300 supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors of this age and spec do not support full HD.

There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors which also support full HD that you might also want to consider including the Hitachi CP-CX250[plb_1740847_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Hitachi CP-EW300 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been around for more than two years.

Other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available that you might want to look at include cheaper data projectors such as the Epson EB-1751[plb_1748931_price], or the Hitachi CP-EX300[plb_1885822_price].

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the CP-EW300 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 multimedia projector). In addition, this projector support supported graphics resolutionss of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). Comparable spec data projectors that have been around for more than two years supported graphics resolutionss range from 640 x 480 (VGA) (worst) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) (best).

Chart Edit

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the CP-EW300 is WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than the most frequently found projector native resolution of XGA (1024x768). The resolution of all 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago ranges from XGA (1024x768) (worst) to WUXGA (1920x1200) (best).

Chart Edit

Three Component Video (YPbPr/YCbCr) Ins

The CP-EW300 has more component video (YPbPr/YCbCr) ins than most of the 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the CP-EW300. This projector is a three component video (YPbPr/YCbCr) in data projector compared to most of the data projectors of this spec and age which only have between one and two component video (YPbPr/YCbCr) ins.

Chart Edit

Two USB 2.0 Ports Quantitys

The CP-EW300 is a two USB 2.0 ports quantity projector.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp

Across all the 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago the service life of lamps range from 200h to 30,000h. With a service life of lamp of 5,000 hours, the CP-EW300 has a quite long service life of lamp compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the CP-EW300.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

When compared to other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years, the service life of lamp (economic mode) of the CP-EW300 of 6,000 hours is one of the longest. Across all the multimedia projectors of this age and type the service life of lamp (economic mode)s range from 2,500h to 10,000h, and the average service life of lamp (economic mode) is 4,100h.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level (economic Mode)

At only 29 decibels, the CP-EW300 has a quite quiet noise level (economic mode) compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the CP-EW300. 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the CP-EW300 have noise level (economic mode)s of between 26dB and 37dB, and the average noise level (economic mode) is 30dB.

Chart Edit

Very Light

At only 2.9 kilograms, the CP-EW300 is quite light compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the CP-EW300. The weights of 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago range from 370g to 23kg.

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

Most 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the CP-EW300 do not support 3D. The CP-EW300 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The CP-EW300 does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other data projectors of this age and type also do not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Very Low RMS Rated Power

The lowest RMS rated power of comparable spec data projectors that were released around the same time as the CP-EW300 is 1W, the highest is 19W, and the average RMS rated power is 6.9W. With an RMS rated power of only 1 Watt, the Hitachi CP-EW300 has one of the lower RMS rated powers amongst similar spec projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Projector Brightness (economic Mode)

The average projector brightness (economic mode) of projectors of this type and age is 3,100 ANSI lumens. The Hitachi CP-EW300 has one of the dimmer projector brightness (economic mode)s (only 2,000 ANSI lumens) amongst multimedia projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantity

The CP-EW300 is a one VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity multimedia projector.

Chart Edit

Very Small Bulb Power

Across all the multimedia projectors of this type and age the bulb powers range from 170W to 4,000W, and the average bulb power is 320W. At only 225 Watts, the CP-EW300 has a fairly small bulb power compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Only One Audio (L,R) in

The Hitachi CP-EW300 is a one audio (L,R) in projector. Most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a similar time to the CP-EW300 have between one and two audio (L,R) ins.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Matrix Size

The Hitachi CP-EW300 has one of the smaller matrix sizes (only 0.59 inches) amongst projectors of this age. The matrix sizes of 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a similar time to the CP-EW300 range from 0.45" to 0.8", and the average matrix size is 0.65".

3 Other reasons to consider the Hitachi CP-EW300

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was over three years ago when Hitachi released the CP-EW300.

Average Noise Level

With a noise level of 37 decibels, the CP-EW300 has a relatively standard noise level compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the CP-EW300.

We compared all the other 37dB noise level multimedia projectors to this multimedia projector and we think the Hitachi CP-EX300[plb_1885822_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Alternative projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the Epson EB-1751[plb_1748931_price] (40dB) which is also cheaper.
