7 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker

The CPWX12WN has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other projectors of this age and spec.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including because of it's better review score, the NEC U250X (£1,949.50), the Epson EB-455Wi, or the Casio XJ-A251.

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

This data projector has a native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is typical of many similar spec multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to it.

Other data projectors that have a resolution of WXGA (1280x800) currently available which you might also want to consider include the PowerLite 935W, or the PowerLite Home Cinema 725HD both from Epson or the Casio XJ-A251 which has a better Rating.

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

The shortest service life of lamp in economic mode of 12000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched more than two years ago is 600h and the longest is 6,000h. At 5,000 hours, the CPWX12WN has a quite long service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the CPWX12WN.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode

Multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the CPWX12WN have noise levels in economy mode of between 26dB and 35dB. The Hitachi CPWX12WN has one of the quieter noise levels in economy mode (only 28 decibels) amongst 12000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Shallow

The shallowest 12000:1 contrast ratio projector that is a comparable age to the CPWX12WN is 71mm deep and the deepest is 480mm. The CPWX12WN is one of the shallower multimedia projectors that have been around for more than two years (only 221 millimeters) amongst 12000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Light

Multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to the CPWX12WN have weights of between 360g and 16kg. With a weight of only 2.3 kilograms, the CPWX12WN is one of the lighter projectors that are older than two years amongst 12000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Short

The shortest 12000:1 contrast ratio projector that was released more than two years ago is 31mm tall and the tallest is 790mm. At only 77 millimeters, the CPWX12WN is fairly short compared to most of the other data projectors of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Hitachi CPWX12WN does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other data projectors of a comparable type and age to the CPWX12WN also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Other multimedia projectors which also support WiFi connectivity that you might also want to consider include the EB-465i, the EB-455Wi, or the PowerLite 935W all from Epson which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Hitachi CPWX12WN does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the CPWX12WN also do not support 3D image projection.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support 3D image projection to this data projector and we think the U250X (£1,949.50), the U310W, or the U300X all from NEC which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other 12000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the CPWX12WN, the CPWX12WN does not support Full HD projection.

Alternative multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might also want to look at include the Panasonic PT-DZ680, the Hitachi CP-EW300 (£490.14), or the Sony VPLFH31 (£2,294.72) which is also higher rated.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

Projectors of a similar spec and age to the CPWX12WN have projector brightness of between 95 ANSI lumens and 8,200 ANSI lumens. The CPWX12WN has a fairly dim projector brightness (only 2,600 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other projectors that are a comparable age to the CPWX12WN.

Alternative 2,600 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors currently available that you might want to look at include the EB-1751 (£411.97), or the EB-93 both from Epson which has a better Rating.

If you want a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to consider the Hitachi CP-EX250 (2,700 ANSI lumens), the Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 725HD (2,800 ANSI lumens), or the Casio XJ-A251 (3,000 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher Rating.

Quite Low RMS Rated Power

The lowest RMS rated power of projectors of a similar age and spec to the CPWX12WN is 1W, the highest is 16W, and the average RMS rated power is 6.1W. With an RMS rated power of only 1 Watt, the CPWX12WN's RMS rated power is one of the lowest amongst projectors of a similar spec and age to the CPWX12WN.

Chart Edit

Very Small Lamp Power

The CPWX12WN has one of the smaller lamp power (only 215 Watts) amongst comparable spec multimedia projectors of this age. The lamp power of 12000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the CPWX12WN range from 170W to 360W, and the average lamp power is 260W.

Chart Edit

Only One Audio in Port

The CPWX12WN is a one audio in port multimedia projector. Most of the other data projectors that are more than two years old have one audio in port.

3 Other reasons to consider the Hitachi CPWX12WN

Running Costs Are OK

The average running cost of the CPWX12WN is £112 over 1 year based on typical energy prices and usage levels, which is typical compared to the other 34 projectors of this age and type.

Over Two Years Old

This data projector was released over two years ago.

Average Noise Level

The CPWX12WN has a relatively average noise level (35 decibels) compared to most of the other data projectors that came out around the same time as the CPWX12WN.

We compared all the other 35dB noise level multimedia projectors to this data projector and we think because of it's better review score, the EB-455Wi, and the EB-465i both from Epson or the Panasonic PT-VX400 is also worth considering.
