3 Reasons For

Very Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the CP-EX400 have service life of lamp in economic mode of between 2,500h and 10,000h. At 10,000 hours, the CP-EX400 has a very long service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to the CP-EX400.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This multimedia projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many data projectors of a similar spec and age to it.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode

The noise levels in economy mode of 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out more than two years ago range from 26dB to 37dB, and the average noise level in economy mode is 30dB. With a noise level in economy mode of only 29 decibels, the Hitachi CP-EX400 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.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

Most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the CP-EX400 have a built-in speaker, however the Hitachi CP-EX400 does not have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the CP-EX400, the Hitachi CP-EX400 does not support Full HD projection.

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

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the CP-EX400 do not support 3D image projection. The CP-EX400 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support 3D image projection including the NEC U310W[plb_1531485_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Hitachi CP-EX400 does not support WiFi connectivity, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other projectors that have been available for more than two years also do not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a WiFi connectivity and we think the Epson PowerLite 1761W[plb_1735741_price], or the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro[plb_1759924_price] is also worth considering.

Very Low RMS Rated Power

Comparable spec data projectors that were released more than two years ago have RMS rated power of between 1W and 19W. The CP-EX400 has one of the lower RMS rated power (only 1 Watt) amongst multimedia projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Small Lamp Power

With a lamp power of only 225 Watts, the CP-EX400 has a fairly small lamp power compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago. The average lamp power of data projectors of this spec and age is 320W, and the lamp power range from 170W to 4,000W.
