6 Reasons For
Has a Built-In Speaker
The CP-TW3003 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the CP-TW3003 also have a built-in speaker.
There are a number of other data projectors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might want to consider including cheaper projectors such as the Epson EB-4550 (£948.41), or the Hitachi CP-AW3003.
We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the Hitachi CP-TW2503.
Quite Quiet Noise Level
With a noise level of only 36 decibels, the CP-TW3003 has one of the quieter noise levels amongst 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. The average noise level of 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years is 37dB.
We compared this data projector to all the other 36dB noise level multimedia projectors and we think the Hitachi CP-AW3003 which is cheaper is also worth considering.
If you would consider a data projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Infocus IN3138 (£725.98) (37dB) which also has a higher rating.
Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports
The Hitachi CP-TW3003 has more VGA (D-Sub) ports than most of the projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-TW3003. Most of the 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the CP-TW3003 only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports, however this multimedia projector has three VGA (D-Sub) ports.
Two HDMI Ports
The CP-TW3003 is a two HDMI port projector. Most of the other projectors that were launched around the same time as the CP-TW3003 have between one and two HDMI ports.
Very High RMS Rated Power
The CP-TW3003 has one of the highest RMS rated power (16 Watts) amongst 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years have RMS rated power of between 2W and 16W, and the average RMS rated power is 9.4W.
Very Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode
The Hitachi CP-TW3003 has a very 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 similar age to the CP-TW3003. The shortest service life of lamp in economic mode of data projectors of a comparable age and type to the CP-TW3003 is 2,500h and the longest is 6,000h.

3 Reasons Against
Does Not Support Full HD Projection
The CP-TW3003 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and spec to the CP-TW3003 also do not support Full HD projection.
It is worth considering alternative projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Hitachi CP-AW3003.
Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity
Like most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago, the CP-TW3003 does not support WiFi connectivity.
We think you might also be interested in other multimedia projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the EB-4550 (£948.41), or the EB-4750W (£946.99) both from Epson which is also cheaper.
Does Not Support 3D Image Projection
The Hitachi CP-TW3003 does not support 3D image projection, although keep in mind that most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years also do not support 3D image projection.
Other multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might want to consider include the Infocus IN3138 (£725.98) which also has a higher Rating.
4 Other reasons to consider the Hitachi CP-TW3003
OK Running Costs
The CP-TW3003 is typical compared to the other 43 data projectors of a comparable spec and age that we have looked at for running costs. Based on typical energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the CP-TW3003 will cost £115 over 1 year to run.
Released Over Two Years Ago
This data projector was released over two years ago.
Average Projector Brightness
At 3,300 ANSI lumens, the CP-TW3003 has a pretty average projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to the CP-TW3003.
If this 5000:1 contrast ratio projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to consider the Hitachi CP-AX3503 (£951.08) (3,600 ANSI lumens) which is also cheaper.
+2 Other reasons
WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution
This projector has a native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is typical of many projectors of this age and type.
Other projectors that have a resolution of WXGA (1280x800) currently available that you might want to look at include cheaper projectors such as the Ricoh PJ WX4240, or the Hitachi CP-AW3003.

Total running cost over 5 years
Running costs for this projector have been estimated based on other similar projectors. If you know how much electricity and water the Hitachi CP-TW3003uses then please let us know by entering those figures in the boxes above.
Running this projector over 5 years will generate 0.57 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2).
To offset that much CO2 you would need to plant 15 tree seedlings and grow them for 10 years.
