5 Reasons For

Very Long Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

With a service life of lamp (economic mode) of 10,000 hours, the CP-EX400's service life of lamp (economic mode) is one of the longest amongst projectors that were released more than two years ago. The average service life of lamp (economic mode) of comparable spec multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the CP-EX400 is 4,100h.

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp

At 5,000 hours, the Hitachi CP-EX400 has a fairly long service life of lamp compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that are a similar age to the CP-EX400. The service life of lamps of 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the CP-EX400 range from 200h to 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp is 5,200h.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to it.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level (economic Mode)

At only 29 decibels, the CP-EX400 has a quite quiet noise level (economic mode) compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the CP-EX400. The noise level (economic mode)s of 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago range from 26dB to 37dB.

Chart Edit

Very Light

At only 2.9 kilograms, the CP-EX400 is fairly light compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable type and age to the CP-EX400. Comparable spec projectors that were released more than two years ago have weights of between 370g and 23kg.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Hitachi CP-EX400 does not have a built-in speaker(s), unlike most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the CP-EX400 which have a built-in speaker(s).

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD

Most 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a similar time to the CP-EX400 do not support full HD. The CP-EX400 is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

Alternative projectors which also support full HD that you might want to consider include the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector[plb_3156294_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support 3D

Like most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the CP-EX400, the Hitachi CP-EX400 does not support 3D.

It is worth also looking at alternative projectors which also support 3D including the NEC U310W[plb_1531485_price].

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Hitachi CP-EX400 does not support wi-Fi, although this is within the context that most of the other data projectors of a similar type and age to the CP-EX400 also do not support wi-Fi.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a wi-Fi and we think the Epson PowerLite 1761W[plb_1735741_price], or the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro[plb_1759924_price] is also worth considering.

Very Low RMS Rated Power

At only 1 Watt, the Hitachi CP-EX400 has a fairly low RMS rated power compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the CP-EX400. The average RMS rated power of 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago is 6.9W, and the RMS rated powers range from 1W to 19W.

Chart Edit

Very Small Bulb Power

The average bulb power of 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the CP-EX400 is 320W, and the bulb powers range from 170W to 4,000W. At only 225 Watts, the CP-EX400 has a quite small bulb power compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the CP-EX400.

Average Noise Level

At 37 decibels, the Hitachi CP-EX400 has a pretty average noise level compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that were launched more than two years ago.

There are a number of alternative 37dB noise level projectors currently available that you might also want to consider including because of it's better review score, the Hitachi CP-EX250[plb_1874387_price].

If you would consider a projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Sony VPLFH31[plb_1475953_price] (37dB).
