7 Reasons For

Low Running Costs

The average 1 year running cost of the CP-A302WNM is only £99 based on average usage levels and energy prices, which makes it one of the cheaper to run projectors of a similar age and type.

Supports Full HD Projection

The CP-A302WNM supports Full HD projection, which is unusual. Most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the CP-A302WNM do not support Full HD projection.

Other projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might also want to look at include the Hitachi CPAW252WNM (£864.00).

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Hitachi CP-A302WNM has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the CP-A302WNM.

Chart Edit

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the CP-A302WNM is 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) multimedia projector, which is the most common resolution supported by 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for more than two years. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this multimedia projector. This data projector also support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) and 800 x 600 (SVGA).

A 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) graphics resolution is actually the best supported resolution across all 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago.

The worst supported resolution amongst comparable types of projector is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Quite Quiet Noise Level

Data projectors of this age and type have noise levels of between 29dB and 42dB, and the average noise level is 35dB. At only 34 decibels, the Hitachi CP-A302WNM has a quite quiet noise level compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the CP-A302WNM.

Chart Edit

Two Component Video in Ports

The Hitachi CP-A302WNM is a two component video in port projector. Most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the CP-A302WNM only have one component video in port.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode

With a noise level in economy mode of only 28 decibels, the CP-A302WNM has one of the quieter noise levels in economy mode amongst 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age. Projectors of this spec and age have noise levels in economy mode of between 28dB and 39dB.

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The CP-A302WNM does not support 3D image projection, although this is within the context that most of the other multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago also do not support 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in alternative data projectors which also support 3D image projection including the NEC L51W.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The CP-A302WNM does not support WiFi connectivity, although keep in mind that most of the other projectors of this type and age also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity that you might want to look at include the L51W, or the NP-P451 (£1,346.94) both from NEC which also has a higher rating.

Very Small Digital Zoom

Across all the similar spec projectors that came out around the same time as the CP-A302WNM the digital zooms range from 1.1x to 12x, and the average digital zoom is 4x. With a digital zoom of only 1.35 times zoom factor, the CP-A302WNM has one of the smaller digital zooms amongst similar spec projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Short Lamp Service Life

The average lamp service life of projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the CP-A302WNM is 4,600h, and the lamp service lives range from 2,000h to 20,000h. At only 3,000 hours, the CP-A302WNM has a quite short lamp service life compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been available for a similar time to the CP-A302WNM.

Chart Edit

Quite Short Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

Across all the projectors of this age and type the service life of lamp in economic mode range from 3,000h to 10,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 6,000h. At only 5,000 hours, the Hitachi CP-A302WNM has a quite short service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-A302WNM.
