9 Reasons For

Low Running Costs

The CP-EX250 is one of the cheaper to run similar spec data projectors that have been available for more than two years that we have assessed for 1 year running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the CP-EX250 is only £100.

Easy to Use

One customer who reviewed this projector concluded that it was easy to use.

Good Picture Quality

One Hitachi CP-EX250 reviewer who reviewed the product concluded that it had good colour saturation.

Reasonably Priced

One customer mentioned in their reviews that it was good value for money. William Obrien wrote on Amazon “Best projector for little money” in his review of this projector.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The CP-EX250 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for more than two years also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this multimedia projector and we think the Asus P1[plb_1479406_price], the NEC U310W[plb_1531485_price], and the Epson PowerLite 1761W[plb_1735741_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Two Composite Video Ins

Most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago only have one composite video in, however the Hitachi CP-EX250 has two composite video ins.

Chart Edit

Three USB 2.0 Ports Quantitys

The Hitachi CP-EX250 is a three USB 2.0 ports quantity multimedia projector.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp

Across all the comparable spec multimedia projectors that were launched more than two years ago the service life of lamps range from 200h to 30,000h. With a service life of lamp of 5,000 hours, the CP-EX250 has a fairly long service life of lamp compared to most of the other data projectors of a similar spec and age to the CP-EX250.

Chart Edit

Very Light

Projectors of this spec and age have weights of between 370g and 23kg, and the average weight is 6.5kg. At only 2.9 kilograms, the Hitachi CP-EX250 is fairly light compared to most of the other projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Only 100V AC Input Voltage

This data projector has a 100 - 120V AC input voltage, which is the most commonly found AC input voltage on similar spec multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD

The Hitachi CP-EX250 does not support full HD. Most of the other projectors of this age and type also do not support full HD.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a full HD and we think the Canon WUX400ST[plb_2983475_price], or the Sony VPLFH36/W[plb_1477017_price] is also worth considering.

Does Not Support 3D

Most 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the CP-EX250 do not support 3D. The CP-EX250 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D.

It is worth also looking at alternative projectors which also support 3D including the NEC U310W[plb_1531485_price], or the Optoma TW775[plb_1774541_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the CP-EX250 do not support wi-Fi. The Hitachi CP-EX250 is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

Other data projectors which also support wi-Fi that you might want to look at include the PowerLite 1761W[pl_1735741_price], or the PowerLite 935W[pl_1875522_price] both from Epson or the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro[plb_1759924_price].

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The CP-EX250 has one of the dimmer projector brightnesss (only 2,700 ANSI lumens) amongst 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age. Across all the 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago the projector brightnesss range from 110 ANSI lumens to 10,000 ANSI lumens.

Projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might also be worth considering include the Epson PowerLite 935W[plb_1875522_price] (3,700 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

Across all the projectors that have been available for around the same time as the CP-EX250 the RMS rated powers range from 1W to 19W.

Chart Edit

Very Small Bulb Power

With a bulb power of only 215 Watts, the CP-EX250 has one of the smaller bulb powers amongst comparable spec multimedia projectors of this age. The smallest bulb power of data projectors that have been available for a similar time to the CP-EX250 is 170W and the biggest is 4,000W.
