4 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Low

The CP-X250 is in the cheapest 34% of all the multimedia projectors of this spec and age that we have looked at for 1 year running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the CP-X250 is only £93.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The CP-X250 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the CP-X250.

Chart Edit

Very High Maximum Horizontal Synchronization

The maximum horizontal synchronization of projectors of this age and spec range from 32kHz to 110kHz, and the average maximum horizontal synchronization is 90kHz. With a maximum horizontal synchronization of 106 kilohertz, the CP-X250 has one of the higher maximum horizontal synchronization amongst comparable spec projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The CP-X250 is a three VGA (D-Sub) port projector.

Chart Edit

12 Reasons Against

Only 100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many projectors of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The CP-X250 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar age and spec to the CP-X250 also do not support Full HD projection.

Alternative projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might also want to look at include the Panasonic PT-FX400U which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The CP-X250 does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been available for a similar time to the CP-X250 also do not support 3D image projection.

We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D image projection to this data projector and we think the Benq SX914 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most similar spec multimedia projectors that have been available for more than two years do not support WiFi connectivity. The CP-X250 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

There are a number of other multimedia projectors which also support WiFi connectivity which you might want to consider including the Gigabyte BRIX Projector which also has a higher rating.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

Projectors of this type and age have projector brightness of between 75 ANSI lumens and 11,000 ANSI lumens. The Hitachi CP-X250 has one of the dimmer projector brightness (only 2,000 ANSI lumens) amongst projectors of this age.

If you are looking for a data projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to look at the Epson Home Cinema 3000 (2,300 ANSI lumens) which is also higher rated.

Very Small Lamp Power

Across all the projectors of this type and age the lamp power range from 130W to 580W, and the average lamp power is 230W. With a lamp power of only 180 Watts, the CP-X250 has one of the smaller lamp power amongst comparable spec projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Low RMS Rated Power

The Hitachi CP-X250 has a fairly low RMS rated power (only 1 Watt) compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that were released around the same time as the CP-X250. The lowest RMS rated power of data projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the CP-X250 is 1W, the highest is 20W, and the average RMS rated power is 8W.

Chart Edit

Very Short Lamp Service Life

The CP-X250 has a fairly short lamp service life (only 2,000 hours) compared to most of the other data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the CP-X250. The shortest lamp service life of projectors of this spec and age is 1,500h, the longest is 30,000h, and the average lamp service life is 5,700h.

Chart Edit

Very Low Maximum Vertical Synchronization

Across all the data projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-X250 the maximum vertical synchronization range from 0.085kHz to 120kHz, and the average maximum vertical synchronization is 74kHz. At only 0.12 kilohertz, the CP-X250 has a quite low maximum vertical synchronization compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Quite Loud Noise Level

Across all the multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than two years the noise levels range from 21dB to 43dB. The CP-X250 has one of the louder noise levels (38 decibels) amongst projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Only One USB 2.0 Port

The Hitachi CP-X250 is a one USB 2.0 port data projector. Most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been on the market for more than two years have between one and three USB 2.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Quite Loud Noise Level in Economy Mode

At 33 decibels, the CP-X250 has a quite loud noise level in economy mode compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age. The average noise level in economy mode of multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago is 30dB, and the noise levels in economy mode range from 22dB to 38dB.
