4 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Hitachi CP-X2530 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other comparable spec data projectors that were launched around the same time as the CP-X2530.

Chart Edit

Two DisplayPorts

Most of the other similar spec projectors that were released more than two years ago only have one DisplayPort, however the CP-X2530 has two DisplayPorts.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports

Most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-X2530 only have one HDMI port, however the CP-X2530 has two HDMI ports.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Lamp Service Life

The CP-X2530 has one of the longer lamp service lives (5,000 hours) amongst 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age. The lamp service lives of data projectors of a comparable age and type to the CP-X2530 range from 2,000h to 20,000h.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Hitachi CP-X2530 does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other similar spec projectors that were released around the same time as the CP-X2530 also do not support 3D image projection.

There are a number of other projectors which also support 3D image projection which you might want to consider including the NEC L51W[plb_1496151_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The CP-X2530 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other projectors of this spec and age also do not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The CP-X2530 does not support WiFi connectivity, although keep in mind that most of the other data projectors that were released more than two years ago also do not support WiFi connectivity.

We think you might also be interested in other data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the L51W[pl_1496151_price], or the NP-P451[pl_1547970_price] both from NEC which is also higher rated.

With a projector brightness of only 2,700 ANSI lumens, the Hitachi CP-X2530 has one of the dimmer projector brightness amongst 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Brightness in Economy Mode

The dimmest brightness in economy mode of data projectors of this age and spec is 1,500 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 3,000 ANSI lumens, and the average brightness in economy mode is 2,100 ANSI lumens. The Hitachi CP-X2530 has a quite dim brightness in economy mode (only 1,800 ANSI lumen) compared to most of the other projectors of this spec and age.

Chart Edit
