4 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other projectors of a similar type and age to the CPAW2505, the Hitachi CPAW2505 has a built-in speaker.

There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might also want to consider including the Hitachi CPX4041WN[plb_3393438_price] which is cheaper.

There are a number of alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker which you might also want to consider including the NEC M403W[plb_3078396_price], or the Panasonic PT-VX425N[plb_3430009_price].

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The CPAW2505 has more VGA (D-Sub) ports than most of the projectors that have been available for around the same time as the CPAW2505. This multimedia projector is a three VGA (D-Sub) port data projector compared to most of the 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the CPAW2505 which only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Lamp Service Life

10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the CPAW2505 have lamp service lives of between 1,500h and 30,000h, and the average lamp service life is 6,200h. The CPAW2505 has one of the longer lamp service lives (10,000 hours) amongst similar spec multimedia projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many similar spec data projectors that have been around for more than a year.

7 Reasons Against

Price Increase of £111.18

The CPAW2505 has increased in price by £111.18 in the last few weeks.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The CPAW2505 does not support 3D image projection, unlike most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to the CPAW2505.

There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection which you might also want to consider including the PT-VX425N[pl_3430009_price], or the PT-VW355N[pl_3496571_price] both from Panasonic or the NEC M403W[plb_3078396_price].

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most of the other projectors of a similar type and age to the CPAW2505 support Full HD projection, however the CPAW2505 does not support Full HD projection.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the PT-VX425N[pl_3430009_price], or the PT-VW355N[pl_3496571_price] both from Panasonic or the NEC M403W[plb_3078396_price] is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Hitachi CPAW2505 does not support WiFi connectivity, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and spec to the CPAW2505 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

It is worth also looking at other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the PT-VX425N[pl_3430009_price], or the PT-VW355N[pl_3496571_price] both from Panasonic.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

Multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than a year have projector brightness of between 600 ANSI lumens and 12,000 ANSI lumens. The CPAW2505 has one of the dimmer projector brightness (only 2,700 ANSI lumens) amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

We compared this projector to all the other 2,700 ANSI lumens brightness projectors and we think cheaper data projectors such as the Hitachi CP -AX2505[plb_3406374_price] is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the Hitachi CPWX3541WN[plb_3869046_price] (3,700 ANSI lumens and cheaper).

Quite Dim Brightness in Economy Mode

The average brightness in economy mode of projectors that have been around for more than a year is 2,000 ANSI lumens, and the brightness in economy mode range from 400 ANSI lumens to 2,600 ANSI lumens. With a brightness in economy mode of only 1,800 ANSI lumen, the CPAW2505 has a fairly dim brightness in economy mode compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that were released one year ago.

Chart Edit

Very Small Digital Zoom

The Hitachi CPAW2505 has a fairly small digital zoom (only 1.35 times zoom factor) compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been available for more than a year. Across all the data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the CPAW2505 the digital zooms range from 1.1x to 2x, and the average digital zoom is 1.8x.

4 Other reasons to consider the Hitachi CPAW2505

Released Over a Year Ago

Hitachi released the CPAW2505 over a year ago.

Running Costs Are OK

The average running cost of the CPAW2505 is £115 over 1 year based on typical usage levels and energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 82 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than a year.

Average Noise Level

With a noise level of 37 decibels, the CPAW2505 has a pretty average noise level compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age.

We compared all the other 37dB noise level multimedia projectors to this data projector and we think cheaper projectors such as the Panasonic PT-VX420[plb_3723242_price] is also worth considering.

Other projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the PT-VW355N[pl_3496571_price] (37dB), or the PT-VX425N[pl_3430009_price] (37dB) both from Panasonic.
