4 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other data projectors that are a similar age to the CPAW2505, the CPAW2505 has a built-in speaker(s).

There are a number of alternative projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available that you might also want to consider including cheaper projectors such as the NEC M333XS[plb_3113388_price].

We think you might also be interested in alternative data projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the NEC M303WS[plb_3113387_price], or the Hitachi CPX4041WN[plb_3393438_price].

Three USB 2.0 Ports Quantitys

The Hitachi CPAW2505 is a three USB 2.0 ports quantity data projector. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the CPAW2505 have between one and three USB 2.0 ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp

With a service life of lamp of 10,000 hours, the Hitachi CPAW2505 has a quite long service life of lamp compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the CPAW2505. The average service life of lamp of 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the CPAW2505 is 5,700h.

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for more than a year.

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

Like most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the CPAW2505, the CPAW2505 does not support 3D.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support 3D to this multimedia projector and we think the NEC M333XS[plb_3113388_price] which is also cheaper is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD

Most 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released around the same time as the CPAW2505 do not support full HD. The Hitachi CPAW2505 is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support full HD including the Benq MH741[plb_3116082_price] or the NEC M333XS[plb_3113388_price].

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the CPAW2505 do not support wi-Fi. The CPAW2505 is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support wi-Fi to this data projector and we think the Panasonic PT-VX425N[plb_3430009_price] is also worth considering.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

Across all the multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the CPAW2505 the projector brightnesss range from 600 ANSI lumens to 12,000 ANSI lumens. At only 2,700 ANSI lumens, the CPAW2505 has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to look at the Hitachi CPWX3541WN[plb_3869046_price] (3,700 ANSI lumens and cheaper).

Quite Dim Projector Brightness (economic Mode)

With a projector brightness (economic mode) of only 1,800 ANSI lumen, the Hitachi CPAW2505 has one of the dimmer projector brightness (economic mode)s amongst projectors of this age. The projector brightness (economic mode)s of comparable spec projectors that have been available for a similar time to the CPAW2505 range from 400 ANSI lumens to 2,600 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Very Small Digital Zoom

The smallest digital zoom of 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out around the same time as the CPAW2505 is 1.1x and the biggest is 2x. At only 1.35 times zoom factor, the CPAW2505 has a fairly small digital zoom compared to most of the other data projectors that were released one year ago.

3 Other reasons to consider the Hitachi CPAW2505

Released Over a Year Ago

It was over a year ago when Hitachi released the CPAW2505.

Average Noise Level

At 37 decibels, the CPAW2505 has a pretty typical noise level compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been around for more than a year.

There are a number of alternative 37dB noise level multimedia projectors currently available that you might also want to consider including because of it's better review score, the PowerLite 955W[pl_2181186_price], or the 965H[pl_2953833_price] both from Epson.

If you don't mind having a louder noise level then you might also want to consider the Panasonic PT-VX425N[plb_3430009_price] (37dB).
