7 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Low

The CP-A222 has an average 1 year running cost of only £99 based on typical energy prices and usage levels, which makes it one of the more economic to run similar spec multimedia projectors that were launched more than two years ago.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the CP-A222, the Hitachi CP-A222 has a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The Hitachi CP-A222 has more VGA (D-Sub) ports than most of the multimedia projectors of this age and type. This Hitachi projector is a three VGA (D-Sub) port data projector compared to most of the comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the CP-A222 which only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Two Component Video in Ports

The CP-A222 has more component video in ports than most of the projectors of a comparable spec and age to the CP-A222. This Hitachi data projector is a two component video in port projector compared to most of the projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-A222 which only have one component video in port.

Chart Edit

Two Audio in Ports

Most projectors of a comparable age and spec to the CP-A222 have between one and two audio in ports, including the Hitachi CP-A222 which has two audio in ports.

Chart Edit

Supports Four Image Formats

The number of supported image formats on the Hitachi CP-A222 is more than most comparable spec projectors that have been around for a similar time to it. This projector supports a JPG image format, which is the most frequently supported image format supported by 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the CP-A222. The image formats "BMP", "GIF" and "PNG" are also supported by this Hitachi projector.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode

At only 28 decibels, the CP-A222 has a very quiet noise level in economy mode compared to most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the CP-A222. The average noise level in economy mode of 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the CP-A222 is 30dB, and the noise levels in economy mode range from 28dB to 39dB.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-A222 do not support 3D image projection. The CP-A222 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D image projection.

There are a number of other multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might want to consider including the NEC L51W[plb_1496151_price].

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Hitachi CP-A222 does not support Full HD projection, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to the CP-A222 also do not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the CP-A222 do not support WiFi connectivity. The Hitachi CP-A222 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

It is worth considering alternative data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the L51W[pl_1496151_price], or the NP-P451[pl_1547970_price] both from NEC which also has a higher rating.

With a projector brightness of only 2,200 ANSI lumens, the Hitachi CP-A222 has one of the dimmer projector brightness amongst 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age.

If this Hitachi multimedia projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to consider the Hitachi CPAW252WNM[plb_1852174_price] (2,500 ANSI lumens).
