1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

This multimedia projector supports a graphics resolution of 1024 x 768 (XGA)|1280 x 1024 (SXGA)|1280 x 768 (WXGA)|1400 x 1050 (SXGA+)|1440 x 900 (WXGA+)|1600 x 1200 (UXGA)|640 x 480 (VGA), which is typical of many 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Three Component Video in Ports

The CP-X8170 has more component video in ports than most of the similar spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the CP-X8170. Most of the 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the CP-X8170 only have between one and two component video in ports, however this projector has three component video in ports.

Chart Edit

Three USB 2.0 Ports

The Hitachi CP-X8170 is a three USB 2.0 port multimedia projector.

Chart Edit

Fairly High Maximum Horizontal Synchronization

The CP-X8170 has one of the higher maximum horizontal synchronization (106 kilohertz) amongst 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. The maximum horizontal synchronization of data projectors of a comparable age and type to the CP-X8170 range from 91kHz to 110kHz, and the average maximum horizontal synchronization is 98kHz.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports

The Hitachi CP-X8170 has more HDMI ports than most of the projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the CP-X8170. Most of the data projectors of this age and spec only have one HDMI port, however this Hitachi projector has two HDMI ports.

Chart Edit

Very Big Lamp Power

Data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the CP-X8170 have lamp power of between 140W and 400W, and the average lamp power is 240W. The CP-X8170 has one of the biggest lamp power (365 Watts) amongst data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Chart Edit

11 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The Hitachi CP-X8170 does not have a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other data projectors of this spec and age.

There are a number of alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker that you might also want to consider including the EB-1410[pl_1851959_price], or the EB-1400WI[pl_1851960_price] both from Epson.
