12 Reasons For

Low Running Costs

Based on typical energy prices and usage levels we estimate that the CP-EW300 will cost only £100 over 1 year to run, which makes it one of the more economic to run projectors of a comparable age and type.

Supports Full HD Projection

The Hitachi CP-EW300 supports Full HD projection, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the CP-EW300 do not support Full HD projection.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the CP-CX250[pl_1740847_price], or the CP-DH300[pl_2149864_price] both from Hitachi is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The CP-EW300 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the CP-EW300 also have a built-in speaker.

We compared this data projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the Epson EB-1751[plb_1748931_price] which is cheaper; or the Epson EB-1771[plb_1748930_price] which has better reviews are also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in other multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the Hitachi CP-CX250[plb_1740847_price].

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The Hitachi CP-EW300 supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of the most frequently found graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this data projector). In addition, this projector support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). The best resolution of all similar spec projectors that came out around the same time as the CP-EW300 is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) and the worst is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Chart Edit

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the CP-EW300 is WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than the most common native projector resolution of XGA (1024x768). The best resolution of all data projectors of a comparable age and spec to the CP-EW300 is WUXGA (1920x1200) and the worst is XGA (1024x768).

Chart Edit

Three Component Video in Ports

Most of the other projectors of a similar type and age to the CP-EW300 only have between one and two component video in ports, however the Hitachi CP-EW300 has three component video in ports.

Chart Edit

Two USB 2.0 Ports

Most 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the CP-EW300 have between one and two USB 2.0 ports, including the Hitachi CP-EW300 which has two USB 2.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Lamp Service Life

The shortest lamp service life of similar spec multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the CP-EW300 is 200h and the longest is 30,000h. With a lamp service life of 5,000 hours, the CP-EW300 has a fairly long lamp service life compared to most of the other projectors that have been available for around the same time as the CP-EW300.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

Data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the CP-EW300 have service life of lamp in economic mode of between 2,500h and 10,000h. With a service life of lamp in economic mode of 6,000 hours, the Hitachi CP-EW300 has one of the longer service life of lamp in economic mode amongst multimedia projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode

The quietest noise level in economy mode of 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for more than two years is 26dB and the loudest is 37dB. With a noise level in economy mode of only 29 decibels, the CP-EW300 has a quite quiet noise level in economy mode compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Narrow

Across all the 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for more than two years the widths range from 120mm to 540mm, and the average width is 380mm. At only 320 millimeters, the CP-EW300 is fairly narrow compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the CP-EW300.

Chart Edit

The weights of multimedia projectors of this age and spec range from 370g to 23kg, and the average weight is 6.5kg.

Chart Edit

9 Reasons Against

Recent Price Increase of £38.32

In the last fortnight the price of the CP-EW300 has increased by £38.32.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for more than two years, the CP-EW300 does not support 3D image projection.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a 3D image projection and we think the Hitachi CP-DH300[plb_2149864_price] is also worth considering.

3 Other reasons to consider the Hitachi CP-EW300

Released Over Two Years Ago

It was over two years ago when Hitachi released the CP-EW300.

Average Noise Level

With a noise level of 37 decibels, the CP-EW300 has a relatively average noise level compared to most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that were launched more than two years ago.

There are a number of other 37dB noise level multimedia projectors currently available that you might also want to consider including the Hitachi CP-EX300[plb_1885822_price] which is cheaper.

If you don't mind having a louder noise level then you might also want to consider the Hitachi CP-CX250[plb_1740847_price] (37dB).

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 3,000 ANSI lumens, the CP-EW300 has a fairly standard projector brightness compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the CP-EW300.

We compared all the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors to this projector and we think the Epson EB-1771[plb_1748930_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
