9 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker

The CP-AW252 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the CP-AW252.

Chart Edit

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

The CP-AW252 has a maximum resolution of WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than the most common native projector resolution of XGA (1024x768).

A WXGA (1280x800) native projector resolution is actually the best resolution across all 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched more than two years ago.

The worst resolution amongst similar types of projector is XGA (1024x768).

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The average noise level of comparable spec projectors that came out more than two years ago is 35dB, and the noise levels range from 29dB to 42dB. With a noise level of only 34 decibels, the CP-AW252 has a fairly quiet noise level compared to most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-AW252.

Chart Edit

Three USB 2.0 Ports

The Hitachi CP-AW252 is a three USB 2.0 port projector. Most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-AW252 only have between one and two USB 2.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Fairly High Maximum Horizontal Synchronization

The CP-AW252 has a quite high maximum horizontal synchronization (106 kilohertz) compared to most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the CP-AW252. Across all the 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago the maximum horizontal synchronization range from 80kHz to 110kHz.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The CP-AW252 has more VGA (D-Sub) ports than most of the projectors of a similar age and spec to the CP-AW252. Most of the 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports, however this projector has three VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Fairly High RMS Rated Power

The lowest RMS rated power of projectors of a similar type and age to the CP-AW252 is 2W, the highest is 16W, and the average RMS rated power is 11W. With an RMS rated power of 16 Watts, the Hitachi CP-AW252 has one of the higher RMS rated power amongst projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Transfer Rate

This multimedia projector has a 10|100 Mbit/s ethernet LAN data transfer rate, which is the most commonly found ethernet LAN data transfer rate on 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than two years.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode

Across all the 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for more than two years the noise levels in economy mode range from 28dB to 39dB. With a noise level in economy mode of only 28 decibels, the Hitachi CP-AW252 has a fairly quiet noise level in economy mode compared to most of the other projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the CP-AW252.

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most projectors of a comparable type and age to the CP-AW252 do not support Full HD projection. The CP-AW252 is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The CP-AW252 does not support 3D image projection, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other projectors that were released around the same time as the CP-AW252 also do not support 3D image projection.

Other multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might want to look at include the NEC L51W[plb_1496151_price].

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Hitachi CP-AW252 does not support WiFi connectivity, although keep in mind that most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the CP-AW252 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

There are a number of other data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity that you might want to consider including the L51W[pl_1496151_price], or the NP-P451[pl_1547970_price] both from NEC which also has a higher rating.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The projector brightness of 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the CP-AW252 range from 500 ANSI lumens to 13,000 ANSI lumens. The CP-AW252 has one of the dimmer projector brightness (only 2,500 ANSI lumens) amongst comparable spec projectors of this age.

If this Hitachi projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to look at the Hitachi CP-X2530WN[plb_1938276_price] (2,700 ANSI lumens).

Very Dim Brightness in Economy Mode

At only 1,600 ANSI lumen, the CP-AW252 has a fairly dim brightness in economy mode compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-AW252. Data projectors of this spec and age have brightness in economy mode of between 1,500 ANSI lumens and 3,000 ANSI lumens, and the average brightness in economy mode is 2,100 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Very Short Lamp Service Life

The average lamp service life of projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the CP-AW252 is 4,600h, and the lamp service lives range from 2,000h to 20,000h. With a lamp service life of only 3,000 hours, the CP-AW252 has a quite short lamp service life compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the CP-AW252.

Chart Edit

Very Low Maximum Vertical Synchronization

The lowest maximum vertical synchronization of data projectors that were released more than two years ago is 0.12kHz, the highest is 120kHz, and the average maximum vertical synchronization is 68kHz. The CP-AW252 has a fairly low maximum vertical synchronization (only 0.12 kilohertz) compared to most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the CP-AW252.

Chart Edit

Quite Short Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

At only 5,000 hours, the CP-AW252 has a quite short service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other projectors that have been around for more than two years. The shortest service life of lamp in economic mode of 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to the CP-AW252 is 3,000h and the longest is 10,000h.
