7 Reasons For

Easy to Use

One customer who reviewed this projector concluded that it was easy to use.

Good Picture Quality

One Hitachi CP-EX250 reviewer who reviewed the product concluded that it had good colour saturation.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the CP-EX250, the Hitachi CP-EX250 has a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Asus P1, the NEC U310W, and the Epson PowerLite 1761W ($649.99) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Two Composite Video Ins

The CP-EX250 has more composite video ins than most of the comparable spec projectors that have been available for a similar time to the CP-EX250. This projector is a two composite video in data projector compared to most of the 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago which only have one composite video in.

Chart Edit

Three USB 2.0 Ports Quantitys

The CP-EX250 has more USB 2.0 ports quantitys than most of the projectors that are a similar age to the CP-EX250. Most of the similar spec projectors that were released more than two years ago only have between one and two USB 2.0 ports quantitys, however this projector has three USB 2.0 ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp

At 5,000 hours, the CP-EX250 has a fairly long service life of lamp compared to most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than two years. 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a similar time to the CP-EX250 have service life of lamps of between 200h and 30,000h.

Chart Edit

Very Light

The lightest 2000:1 contrast ratio projector that was released around the same time as the CP-EX250 is 370g heavy, the heaviest is 23kg, and the average weight is 6.5kg. At only 2.9 kilograms, the CP-EX250 is fairly light compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age.

7 Reasons Against

Only 100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 120V AC input voltage, which is typical of many projectors of a similar age and spec to it.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the CP-EX250, the CP-EX250 does not support full HD.

We compared this data projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a full HD and we think the Canon WUX400ST, or the Sony VPLFH36/W is also worth considering.

Does Not Support 3D

Most similar spec projectors that were released more than two years ago do not support 3D. The CP-EX250 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support 3D to this projector and we think the NEC U310W, or the Optoma TW775 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most projectors of this age and type do not support wi-Fi. The CP-EX250 is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

Alternative projectors which also support wi-Fi that you might want to look at include the PowerLite 1761W ($649.99), or the PowerLite 935W ($972.99) both from Epson or the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro which is also higher rated.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The CP-EX250 has one of the dimmer projector brightnesss (only 2,700 ANSI lumens) amongst comparable spec data projectors of this age. The average projector brightness of data projectors of a similar age and type to the CP-EX250 is 4,100 ANSI lumens.

If this projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to look at the Epson PowerLite 935W ($972.99) (3,700 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

Very Low RMS Rated Power

With an RMS rated power of only 1 Watt, the CP-EX250 has a quite low RMS rated power compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-EX250. Similar spec data projectors that were released more than two years ago have RMS rated powers of between 1W and 19W.

Chart Edit

Very Small Bulb Power

The bulb powers of 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the CP-EX250 range from 170W to 4,000W. At only 215 Watts, the CP-EX250 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.
