7 Reasons For

Low Running Costs

The average 1 year running cost of the CP-CX250 is only £96 based on average energy prices, which is in the cheapest 14% of all 87 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Supports Full HD

The CP-CX250 supports full HD, unlike most of the other projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the CP-CX250 which do not support full HD.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative multimedia projectors which support full HD currently available including because of it's better review score, the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector[plb_3156294_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Hitachi CP-CX250 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other multimedia projectors that have been available for more than two years.

We compared all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think the Epson PowerLite 935W[plb_1875522_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantitys

The Hitachi CP-CX250 is a three VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity projector. Most of the other data projectors of a comparable type and age to the CP-CX250 have between one and three VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Two Component Video (YPbPr/YCbCr) Ins

The CP-CX250 is a two component video (YPbPr/YCbCr) in data projector.

100V AC Input Voltage

This multimedia projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

The shortest service life of lamp (economic mode) of 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the CP-CX250 is 2,500h and the longest is 10,000h. At 5,000 hours, the Hitachi CP-CX250 has a fairly long service life of lamp (economic mode) compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

The CP-CX250 does not support 3D, although keep in mind that most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years also do not support 3D.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a 3D and we think the NEC U310W[plb_1531485_price] is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The CP-CX250 does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other multimedia projectors that have been available for a similar time to the CP-CX250 also do not support wi-Fi.

There are a number of other multimedia projectors which also support wi-Fi that you might want to consider including the Epson PowerLite 1761W[plb_1735741_price], or the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro[plb_1759924_price] which also has a higher rating.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

At only 2,500 ANSI lumens, the CP-CX250 has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the CP-CX250. The average projector brightness of comparable spec projectors that have been around for a similar time to the CP-CX250 is 4,100 ANSI lumens.

If you would prefer a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to look at the Epson EB-1751[plb_1748931_price] (2,600 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.
