10 Reasons For

Low Running Costs

The CP-EX250 has an average 1 year running cost of only £100 based on average usage levels and energy prices, which makes it one of the cheaper to run multimedia projectors of a similar age and type.

Easy to Use

One customer who reviewed this projector concluded that it was easy to use.

Good Picture Quality

One Hitachi CP-EX250 reviewer who reviewed the product concluded that it had good colour saturation.

Reasonably Priced

One customer mentioned in their reviews that it was good value for money. William Obrien wrote on Amazon “Best projector for little money” in his review of this projector.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The CP-EX250 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that were launched more than two years ago also have a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including because of it's better review score, the Asus P1[plb_1479406_price], the NEC U310W[plb_1531485_price], or the Epson PowerLite 1761W[plb_1735741_price].

Two Composite Video in Ports

Most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the CP-EX250 only have one composite video in port, however the CP-EX250 has two composite video in ports.

Chart Edit

Three USB 2.0 Ports

The Hitachi CP-EX250 is a three USB 2.0 port projector. Most of the other projectors that have been available for more than two years only have between one and two USB 2.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Lamp Service Life

The CP-EX250 has a quite long lamp service life (5,000 hours) compared to most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than two years. The average lamp service life of multimedia projectors that have been available for a similar time to the CP-EX250 is 5,200h, and the lamp service lives range from 200h to 30,000h.

Chart Edit

Narrow

The CP-EX250 is quite narrow (only 320 millimeters) compared to most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the CP-EX250. 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago have widths of between 120mm and 540mm.

Chart Edit

Very Light

With a weight of only 2.9 kilograms, the CP-EX250 is one of the lighter comparable spec projectors that were launched more than two years ago amongst 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age. Multimedia projectors of a similar spec and age to the CP-EX250 have weights of between 370g and 23kg, and the average weight is 6.5kg.

Chart Edit

8 Reasons Against

Only 100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 120V AC input voltage, which is the most frequently found AC input voltage on multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than two years.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the CP-EX250, the CP-EX250 does not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other projectors which also support Full HD projection to this multimedia projector and we think the Canon WUX400ST[plb_2983475_price], or the Sony VPL-FH36[plb_1477017_price] is also worth considering.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most data projectors of a comparable age and type to the CP-EX250 do not support 3D image projection. The CP-EX250 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D image projection.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a 3D image projection and we think the NEC U310W[plb_1531485_price], or the Optoma TW775[plb_1774541_price] is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Hitachi CP-EX250 does not support WiFi connectivity, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the CP-EX250 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this multimedia projector and we think the PowerLite 1761W[pl_1735741_price], or the PowerLite 935W[pl_1875522_price] both from Epson or the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro[plb_1759924_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The projector brightness of projectors of a similar type and age to the CP-EX250 range from 110 ANSI lumens to 10,000 ANSI lumens. At only 2,700 ANSI lumens, the CP-EX250 has a quite dim projector brightness compared to most of the other data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the CP-EX250.

If this data projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to consider the Epson PowerLite 935W[plb_1875522_price] (3,700 ANSI lumens and higher rated).
