7 Reasons For

Low Running Costs

The CP-A302WNM is in the cheapest 16% of all 32 projectors of this age and spec that we have assessed for running costs. Based on typical usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the CP-A302WNM will cost only £99 over 1 year to run.

Supports Full HD

The CP-A302WNM supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the CP-A302WNM do not support full HD.

It is worth also looking at alternative multimedia projectors which also support full HD including the Hitachi CPAW252WNM[plb_1852174_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The CP-A302WNM has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the CP-A302WNM.

Chart Edit

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the CP-A302WNM is 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of the most frequently found supported graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this data projector). This multimedia projector also support supported graphics resolutionss of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) and 800 x 600 (SVGA).

This multimedia projector's resolution (1600 x 1200 (UXGA)) is actually the best supported resolution across all 4000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the CP-A302WNM.

A 640 x 480 (VGA) supported graphics resolutions is the worst supported resolution amongst comparable types of multimedia projector.

Quite Quiet Noise Level

With a noise level of only 34 decibels, the Hitachi CP-A302WNM has a fairly quiet noise level compared to most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the CP-A302WNM. The noise levels of projectors of a similar age and spec to the CP-A302WNM range from 30dB to 42dB.

Alternative projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the Panasonic PT-VX500[plb_1746995_price] (34dB), or the Hitachi CP-A222[plb_1806846_price] (34dB).

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

The Hitachi CP-A302WNM does not support 3D, although it is worth noting that most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the CP-A302WNM also do not support 3D.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support 3D including the NEC L51W[plb_1496151_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The CP-A302WNM does not support wi-Fi, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the CP-A302WNM also do not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Very Small Digital Zoom

At only 1.35 times zoom factor, the CP-A302WNM has a fairly small digital zoom compared to most of the other projectors that came out more than two years ago. Across all the projectors of a comparable age and spec to the CP-A302WNM the digital zooms range from 1.1x to 12x, and the average digital zoom is 3.4x.

Chart Edit

Very Short Service Life of Lamp

At only 3,000 hours, the CP-A302WNM has a fairly short service life of lamp compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar spec and age to the CP-A302WNM. 4000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago have service life of lamps of between 2,000h and 20,000h.

Chart Edit

Quite Short Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

The Hitachi CP-A302WNM has a fairly short service life of lamp (economic mode) (only 5,000 hours) compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that were released around the same time as the CP-A302WNM. The service life of lamp (economic mode)s of comparable spec multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the CP-A302WNM range from 3,000h to 8,500h, and the average service life of lamp (economic mode) is 5,900h.
