5 Reasons For

Supports Wi-Fi

The CP-AW2505 supports wi-Fi. Most of the other data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the CP-AW2505 do not support wi-Fi.

Alternative multimedia projectors which support wi-Fi currently available which you might also want to look at include the Epson EX7235[plb_3060914_price] which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The CP-AW2505 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other projectors that were released around the same time as the CP-AW2505.

Chart Edit

Very High Horizontal Synchronization (max)

When compared to other data projectors that were released around the same time as the CP-AW2505 that we have checked, the CP-AW2505's horizontal synchronization (max) of 106 kilohertz is one of the highest. Across all the 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the CP-AW2505 the horizontal synchronization (max)s range from 0.1kHz to 110kHz.

Chart Edit

Quite High Vertical Synchronization (max)

The CP-AW2505 has one of the higher vertical synchronization (max)s (120 kilohertz) amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age. Across all the projectors of this age and spec the vertical synchronization (max)s range from 0.085kHz to 120kHz.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantitys

The CP-AW2505 is a three VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity data projector.

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

Like most of the other projectors of a similar type and age to the CP-AW2505, the Hitachi CP-AW2505 does not support 3D.

It is worth also looking at alternative data projectors which also support 3D including the Acer K137[plb_2190933_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support Full HD

The Hitachi CP-AW2505 does not support full HD, although this is within the context that most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than a year also do not support full HD.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The projector brightnesss of comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the CP-AW2505 range from 600 ANSI lumens to 12,000 ANSI lumens. At only 2,700 ANSI lumens, the CP-AW2505 has a quite dim projector brightness compared to most of the other data projectors of this spec and age.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to look at the Hitachi CP-WX3041WN[plb_3792952_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens), or the Acer H9505BD[plb_3806779_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens).

Very Small Digital Zoom

With a digital zoom of only 1.35 times zoom factor, the CP-AW2505 has one of the smaller digital zooms amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age. The smallest digital zoom of projectors of a similar type and age to the CP-AW2505 is 1.1x and the biggest is 2x.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim White Light Output

At only 2,700 ANSI lumens, the CP-AW2505 has a quite dim white light output compared to most of the other data projectors that have been available for more than a year. Across all the 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the CP-AW2505 the white light outputs range from 2,700 ANSI lumens to 4,100 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Colour Light Output

The average colour light output of multimedia projectors of a comparable age and spec to the CP-AW2505 is 3,000 ANSI lumens. The Hitachi CP-AW2505 has one of the dimmer colour light outputs (only 2,700 ANSI lumens) amongst comparable spec projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Fairly Loud Noise Level (economic Mode)

The CP-AW2505 has a fairly loud noise level (economic mode) (32 decibels) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the CP-AW2505. Across all the data projectors of a similar spec and age to the CP-AW2505 the noise level (economic mode)s range from 26dB to 43dB.

4 Other reasons to consider the Hitachi CP-AW2505

Average Running Costs

The CP-AW2505 is typical compared to the other 88 multimedia projectors of this age and type that we have assessed for running costs. Based on average usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the CP-AW2505 will cost £109 over 1 year to run.

Released Over a Year Ago

It was over a year ago when Hitachi released the CP-AW2505.

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the CP-AW2505 is WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than a XGA (1024x768) data projector, which is the most common resolution.

Chart Edit

Average Noise Level

With a noise level of 34 decibels, the Hitachi CP-AW2505 has a pretty typical noise level compared to most of the other projectors that have been around for around the same time as the CP-AW2505.

Other projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the Ricoh PJ X2240[plb_2938029_price] (34dB), or the Benq MW855UST[plb_3333837_price] (34dB).
