4 Reasons For

Supports WiFi Connectivity

The CP-AW2505 supports WiFi connectivity. Most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the CP-AW2505 do not support WiFi connectivity.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other projectors which support WiFi connectivity currently available including because of it's better review score, the Epson EX7235[plb_3060914_price].

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the Hitachi CPX2541WN[plb_3419040_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker

The CP-AW2505 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the CP-AW2505 also have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Very High Maximum Horizontal Synchronization

The average maximum horizontal synchronization of projectors of this spec and age is 100kHz, and the maximum horizontal synchronization range from 100kHz to 110kHz. At 106 kilohertz, the Hitachi CP-AW2505 has a very high maximum horizontal synchronization compared to most of the other projectors that have been available for around the same time as the CP-AW2505.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

Most of the other projectors of this age and type only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports, however the CP-AW2505 has three VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The CP-AW2505 does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the CP-AW2505 do support 3D image projection.

We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D image projection to this projector and we think the Epson Home Cinema 600[plb_3077179_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the CP-AW2505 support Full HD projection, however the CP-AW2505 does not support Full HD projection.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the Epson Home Cinema 600[plb_3077179_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

Across all the projectors of this age and spec the projector brightness range from 600 ANSI lumens to 12,000 ANSI lumens. At only 2,700 ANSI lumens, the Hitachi CP-AW2505 has a quite dim projector brightness compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that were released one year ago.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 2,700 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including the Epson PowerLite X27[plb_2896329_price] which has better reviews.

If you want a multimedia projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the P1500[pl_3806777_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens), or the H6517ST[pl_3929999_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens) both from Acer which also has a higher rating.

Very Small Digital Zoom

At only 1.35 times zoom factor, the CP-AW2505 has a quite small digital zoom compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a similar time to the CP-AW2505. The digital zooms of 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the CP-AW2505 range from 1.1x to 2x.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Colour Light Output

The dimmest colour light output of 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the CP-AW2505 is 2,100 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 4,100 ANSI lumens. With a colour light output of only 2,700 ANSI lumens, the CP-AW2505 has one of the dimmer colour light outputs amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim White Light Output

The CP-AW2505 has a fairly dim white light output (only 2,700 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the CP-AW2505. 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released one year ago have white light outputs of between 2,700 ANSI lumens and 4,100 ANSI lumens, and the average white light output is 3,100 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Only One Component Video in Port

Most projectors of a comparable age and spec to the CP-AW2505 have one component video in port, including the CP-AW2505 which has one component video in port.

Chart Edit

Quite Loud Noise Level in Economy Mode

At 32 decibels, the CP-AW2505 has a fairly loud noise level in economy mode compared to most of the other projectors that have been available for more than a year. 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-AW2505 have noise levels in economy mode of between 26dB and 43dB, and the average noise level in economy mode is 30dB.

4 Other reasons to consider the Hitachi CP-AW2505

Average Running Costs

Based on typical energy prices we estimate that the CP-AW2505 will cost £109 over 1 year to run, which is typical compared to the other 82 projectors of this type and age.

Released Over a Year Ago

Hitachi released the CP-AW2505 over a year ago.

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

This projector has a native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is typical of many 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to it.

Chart Edit

Average Noise Level

The CP-AW2505 has a relatively standard noise level (34 decibels) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type to the CP-AW2505.

Projectors with a louder noise level that might be worth looking at include the U321H[pl_3095041_price] (34dB), or the V302W[pl_2988132_price] (34dB) both from NEC or the Ricoh PJ WX2240[plb_3011875_price] (34dB).
