9 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Very Low

Based on typical energy prices and usage levels we estimate that the CP-CX251N will cost only £97 over 1 year to run, which makes it one of the cheapest to run comparable spec data projectors that came out in the last year.

Supports Full HD

The CP-CX251N supports full HD. Most of the other recently released comparable spec projectors do not support full HD.

We compared all the other projectors which also support full HD to this multimedia projector and we think the DELL 1850[plb_3307742_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the CP-CX251N, the CP-CX251N has a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think cheaper projectors such as the DELL 4220[plb_3820929_price] is also worth considering.

There are a number of other projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) that you might want to consider including the DELL 1850[plb_3307742_price].
