Hitachi released the CP -AX2505 in July 2015.


Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Hitachi CP -AX2505 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than a year also have a built-in speaker(s).

Video

Does Not Support Full HD

The Hitachi CP -AX2505 does not support full HD, unlike most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than a year ago.

It is worth considering alternative data projectors which also support full HD including the Optoma DH1017, the Acer H6510BD (£519.99), or the Benq W1070+.

Only 525i Video Mode

This data projector supports a 480i|480p|525i|576i|720p|1080i supported video modes, which is the most frequently supported supported video modes on 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to it.

Projector

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

Across all the projectors of a comparable age and type to this data projector the projector brightnesses range from 600 ANSI lumens to 16,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 4,100 ANSI lumens. The CP -AX2505 has one of the dimmer projector brightnesses (only 2,700 ANSI lumens) amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

If this projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to look at the Acer P1500 (£555.23) (3,000 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.

XGA (1024x768) Resolution

Performance

Average Noise Level

With a noise level of 34 decibels, the CP -AX2505 has a pretty standard noise level compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than a year.

We compared this projector to all the other 34dB noise level multimedia projectors and we think the Ricoh PJ WX2240 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Projectors with a louder noise level that might be worth considering include the V302W (£455.53) (34dB), or the V302X (£386.89) (34dB) both from NEC.
