10 Reasons For

Low Running Costs

The CP-X2503 is in the cheapest 22% of all 19 multimedia projectors that were released in the last year that we have analysed for 1 year running costs. Based on typical energy prices, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the CP-X2503 is £115.

Supports Full HD Projection

Most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched in the last year support Full HD projection, including the CP-X2503.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

Most of the other data projectors that came out around the same time as the CP-X2503 have a built-in speaker, including the CP-X2503.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker and we think a higher Kagoo Rating™ data projector such as the Optoma BR326 are also worth considering.

Quiet Noise Level

Similar spec data projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-X2503 have noise levels of between 29dB and 48dB, and the average noise level is 37dB. At only 34 decibels, the Hitachi CP-X2503 has a quite quiet noise level compared to most of the other latest 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors.

We compared this data projector to all the other 34dB noise level projectors and we think the Hitachi CP-AX2503 which have a better Kagoo Rating™ are also worth considering.

Three USB 2.0 Ports

Most of the other multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the CP-X2503 only have between one and two USB 2.0 ports, however the CP-X2503 has three USB 2.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The CP-X2503 is a three VGA (D-Sub) port multimedia projector. Most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for the last year only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports

The CP-X2503 is a two HDMI port data projector.

Chart Edit

Supports Seven Video Modes

The CP-X2503 has a greater number of supported video mode than most comparable spec multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as it. This data projector supports a 720p video mode, which is the most frequently supported video mode supported by data projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the CP-X2503. The video modes "1080i", "1080p", "480i", "480p", "576i" and "576p" are also supported by this multimedia projector.

Chart Edit

1.35:1 Zoom Ratio

This multimedia projector supports a 1.35:1 zoom ratio, which is the most frequently supported zoom ratio on similar spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode

Across all the projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the CP-X2503 the noise levels in economy mode range from 28dB to 35dB. The CP-X2503 has one of the quieter noise levels in economy mode (only 28 decibels) amongst projectors of this age.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most of the 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the CP-X2503, including the CP-X2503, do not support 3D image projection.

It is worth also looking at alternative projectors with a 3D image projection including the BR323, or the BR326 both from Optoma or the Infocus IN118HD.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most of the comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for the last year do not support WiFi connectivity, including the CP-X2503.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Projector Brightness

The CP-X2503 has a fairly dim projector brightness (only 2,700 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other recently released multimedia projectors. The average projector brightness of similar spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the CP-X2503 is 5,200 ANSI lumens, and the projector brightnesses range from 2,700 ANSI lumens to 10,000 ANSI lumens.

We compared all the other 2700 ANSI lumens brightness projectors to this multimedia projector and we think a higher rated data projector such as the CP-TW2503, and the CP-AX2503 both from Hitachi or the Infocus IN118HD are also worth considering.

If you are looking for a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the Hitachi CP-AW3003 (3300 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

Very Dim Brightness in Economy Mode

15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are less than a year old have brightness in economy mode of between 1,800 ANSI lumens and 6,600 ANSI lumens. At only 1,800 ANSI lumen, the CP-X2503 has a fairly dim brightness in economy mode compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the CP-X2503.

Chart Edit

Very Small Digital Zoom

At only 1.35 times zoom factor, the CP-X2503 has a quite small digital zoom compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that came out in the last 12 months. The smallest digital zoom of newly released data projectors is 1.1x and the biggest is 4x.

Chart Edit

Very Small Number of Colours

The numbers of colours of similar spec data projectors that have been around for the last year range from 16M to 1,100M. The Hitachi CP-X2503 has one of the smaller numbers of colours (only 16.7 million) amongst 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age.

2 Other reasons to consider the Hitachi CP-X2503

Nine Months Old

This data projector was released nine months ago.

XGA (1024x768) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the Hitachi CP-X2503 is XGA (1024x768). That's 23% less resolution than the most common native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800).

It is worth also looking at alternative data projectors that have a resolution of XGA (1024x768) including a higher Kagoo Rating™ product such as the Hitachi CP-AX3003 (£807.61), or the Optoma BR326.

If the resolution of this data projector is not high enough for you then you might want to also look at the CP-TW3003 (£897.40) (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated), or the CP-TW2503 (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated) both from Hitachi or the Epson EH-TW570 (£439.97) (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated).
