8 Reasons For

Very Low Running Costs

The CP-CX251N is in the cheapest 8% of all 14 projectors that have been on the market for the last year that we have assessed for running costs. Based on average usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the CP-CX251N will cost only £97 over 1 year to run.

Supports Full HD Projection

The CP-CX251N supports Full HD projection, unlike most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the CP-CX251N which do not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other recently released comparable spec data projectors, the Hitachi CP-CX251N has a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the DELL 4220[plb_3820929_price].

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The CP-CX251N supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) data projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the CP-CX251N. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this data projector. In addition, this projector support graphics resolutions of 800 x 600 (SVGA), 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA) and 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 1440 x 900 (WXGA+). Across all 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the CP-CX251N the resolution ranges from 640 x 480 (VGA) (worst) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) (best).
