4 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Hitachi CP-EX250N has a built-in speaker. Most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the CP-EX250N also have a built-in speaker.

Alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might want to consider include because of it's better review score, the Casio XJ-A246[plb_2223326_price].

Very High RMS Rated Power

2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched around the same time as the CP-EX250N have RMS rated power of between 1W and 19W. At 16 Watts, the CP-EX250N has a very high RMS rated power compared to most of the other projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Lamp Service Life

The lamp service lives of projectors of a similar type and age to the CP-EX250N range from 200h to 30,000h. At 5,000 hours, the Hitachi CP-EX250N has a quite long lamp service life compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the CP-EX250N.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

The service life of lamp in economic mode of 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the CP-EX250N range from 2,500h to 10,000h. When compared to other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-EX250N that we have assessed, the service life of lamp in economic mode of the CP-EX250N of 6,000 hours is one of the longest.

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most data projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the CP-EX250N do not support Full HD projection. The CP-EX250N is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support Full HD projection to this projector and we think the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector[plb_3156294_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The CP-EX250N does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the CP-EX250N also do not support 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in alternative multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection including the NEC U310W[plb_1531485_price].

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other projectors of this type and age, the CP-EX250N does not support WiFi connectivity.

It is worth considering alternative projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the Epson PowerLite 1761W[plb_1735741_price], or the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro[plb_1759924_price].

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The CP-EX250N has one of the dimmer projector brightness (only 2,700 ANSI lumens) amongst 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age. Data projectors of a similar type and age to the CP-EX250N have projector brightness of between 110 ANSI lumens and 10,000 ANSI lumens.

There are a number of other 2,700 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors currently available which you might also want to look at including the Hitachi CP-EX250[plb_1874387_price] which has better reviews.

If this projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to consider the Epson D6155W[plb_3060325_price] (3,500 ANSI lumens), or the Canon WUX400ST[plb_2983475_price] (4,000 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.

Very Dim Brightness in Economy Mode

The brightness in economy mode of 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the CP-EX250N range from 1,400 ANSI lumens to 5,400 ANSI lumens, and the average brightness in economy mode is 3,000 ANSI lumens. At only 1,800 ANSI lumen, the CP-EX250N has a fairly dim brightness in economy mode compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the CP-EX250N.

Chart Edit

Very Small Lamp Power

The lamp power of comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the CP-EX250N range from 170W to 4,000W. At only 215 Watts, the CP-EX250N has a fairly small lamp power compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been available for a similar time to the CP-EX250N.

Chart Edit

Only One USB 2.0 Port

The CP-EX250N is a one USB 2.0 port data projector. Most of the other similar spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the CP-EX250N have between one and two USB 2.0 ports.

The CP-EX250N is typical compared to the other 86 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for more than two years that we have assessed for running costs. Based on typical usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the CP-EX250N will cost £104 over 1 year to run.

Released Over Three Years Ago

This 2000:1 contrast ratio projector was released over three years ago.

Average Noise Level

At 38 decibels, the CP-EX250N has a fairly standard noise level compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the CP-EX250N.
