4 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Hitachi CP-EX250N has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Quite High RMS Rated Power

With an RMS rated power of 16 Watts, the CP-EX250N has one of the higher RMS rated powers amongst similar spec projectors of this age. The average RMS rated power of 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years is 6.9W, and the RMS rated powers range from 1W to 19W.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp

With a service life of lamp of 5,000 hours, the Hitachi CP-EX250N has one of the longer service life of lamps amongst 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. Across all the comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than two years the service life of lamps range from 200h to 30,000h.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

The CP-EX250N has one of the longer service life of lamp (economic mode)s (6,000 hours) amongst projectors of this age. Projectors that have been around for around the same time as the CP-EX250N have service life of lamp (economic mode)s of between 2,500h and 10,000h, and the average service life of lamp (economic mode) is 4,100h.

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

Most projectors of this age and spec do not support full HD. The CP-EX250N is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a full HD and we think the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector ($499.00) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support 3D

The CP-EX250N does not support 3D, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other data projectors that were released more than two years ago also do not support 3D.

Other projectors which also support 3D that you might want to look at include the NEC U310W which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The CP-EX250N does not support wi-Fi, although this is within the context that most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a similar time to the CP-EX250N also do not support wi-Fi.

We compared all the other projectors which also support wi-Fi to this projector and we think the Epson PowerLite 1761W ($649.99), or the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro is also worth considering.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

At only 2,700 ANSI lumens, the CP-EX250N has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago. Across all the comparable spec multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the CP-EX250N the projector brightnesss range from 110 ANSI lumens to 10,000 ANSI lumens.

Alternative 2,700 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors currently available that you might also want to look at include because of it's better review score, the Hitachi CP-EX250.

If you would prefer a data projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the Epson D6155W (3,500 ANSI lumens), or the Canon WUX400ST (4,000 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.

Very Dim Projector Brightness (economic Mode)

The Hitachi CP-EX250N has one of the dimmer projector brightness (economic mode)s (only 1,800 ANSI lumen) amongst 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. The projector brightness (economic mode)s of 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the CP-EX250N range from 1,400 ANSI lumens to 5,400 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Very Small Bulb Power

With a bulb power of only 215 Watts, the CP-EX250N has a quite small bulb power compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the CP-EX250N. Projectors of this age and spec have bulb powers of between 170W and 4,000W, and the average bulb power is 320W.

Chart Edit
