8 Reasons For

Supports Full HD Projection

The Hitachi CP-TW2503 supports Full HD projection, unlike most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the CP-TW2503 which do not support Full HD projection.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative data projectors which support Full HD projection currently available including because of it's better review score, the Benq W1060[plb_1403581_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker

The CP-TW2503 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the CP-TW2503.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker and we think because of it's better review score, the Benq W1060[plb_1403581_price] is also worth considering.

Three USB 2.0 Ports

The CP-TW2503 is a three USB 2.0 port projector. Most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a similar time to the CP-TW2503 only have between one and two USB 2.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The CP-TW2503 has more VGA (D-Sub) ports than most of the 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago. This data projector is a three VGA (D-Sub) port projector compared to most of the projectors of a comparable spec and age to the CP-TW2503 which only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports

The Hitachi CP-TW2503 is a two HDMI port multimedia projector.

Chart Edit

Fairly High RMS Rated Power

With an RMS rated power of 16 Watts, the CP-TW2503 has one of the higher RMS rated power amongst similar spec multimedia projectors of this age. Across all the 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a similar time to the CP-TW2503 the RMS rated power range from 2W to 16W.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

The shortest service life of lamp in economic mode of projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the CP-TW2503 is 2,500h and the longest is 6,000h. The Hitachi CP-TW2503 has a quite long service life of lamp in economic mode (6,000 hours) compared to most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-TW2503.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode

The average noise level in economy mode of 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the CP-TW2503 is 31dB. At only 29 decibels, the CP-TW2503 has a fairly quiet noise level in economy mode compared to most of the other data projectors of a comparable type and age to the CP-TW2503.

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Hitachi CP-TW2503 does not support 3D image projection, although keep in mind that most of the other data projectors that were released around the same time as the CP-TW2503 also do not support 3D image projection.

It is worth considering alternative data projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Z8455WUNL[pl_1838281_price], or the PowerLite W16[pl_2384315_price] both from Epson which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other projectors that have been on the market for more than two years, the CP-TW2503 does not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The projector brightness of the CP-TW2503 of only 2,700 ANSI lumens is one of the dimmest amongst 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years. The dimmest projector brightness of 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago is 2,000 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 10,000 ANSI lumens.

We compared this data projector to all the other 2,700 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors and we think because of it's better review score, the Hitachi CP-AX2503[plb_2298359_price] is also worth considering.

If you want a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to look at the CP-TW3003[pl_2516774_price] (3,300 ANSI lumens), or the CP-AX3503[pl_3020951_price] (3,600 ANSI lumens) both from Hitachi.

Quite Small Lamp Power

At only 250 Watts, the CP-TW2503 has a quite small lamp power compared to most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the CP-TW2503. The smallest lamp power of projectors that were released more than two years ago is 190W, the biggest is 400W, and the average lamp power is 300W.

Chart Edit

Only One Audio in Port

The CP-TW2503 is a one audio in port projector.

Chart Edit

Very Small Matrix Size

The Hitachi CP-TW2503 has a quite small matrix size (only 0.59 inches) compared to most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years. Across all the projectors of this type and age the matrix sizes range from 0.55" to 0.79", and the average matrix size is 0.7".

4 Other reasons to consider the Hitachi CP-TW2503

Running Costs Are Average

Based on average energy prices we estimate that the 1 year running cost of the CP-TW2503 is £115, which is typical compared to the other 53 data projectors of this age and type.

Released Over Two Years Ago

Hitachi released the CP-TW2503 over two years ago.

Average Noise Level

The CP-TW2503 has a pretty standard noise level (36 decibels) compared to most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 36dB noise level multimedia projectors currently available including the Epson PowerLite W16[plb_2384315_price] which has better reviews.

Other multimedia projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the CP-TW3003[pl_2516774_price] (36dB), or the CP-AX3003[pl_2415583_price] (36dB) both from Hitachi.
