4 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other data projectors of this age and spec, the CP-EX250N has a built-in speaker(s).

Chart Edit

Very High RMS Rated Power

The RMS rated powers of 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the CP-EX250N range from 1W to 19W. With an RMS rated power of 16 Watts, the Hitachi CP-EX250N has a very high RMS rated power compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp

The CP-EX250N has one of the longer service life of lamps (5,000 hours) amongst data projectors of this age. The average service life of lamp of data projectors of a comparable age and spec to the CP-EX250N is 5,200h, and the service life of lamps range from 200h to 30,000h.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

The service life of lamp (economic mode)s of projectors of this spec and age range from 2,500h to 10,000h. The CP-EX250N has one of the longer service life of lamp (economic mode)s (6,000 hours) amongst multimedia projectors of this age.

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

Most multimedia projectors of this spec and age do not support full HD. The CP-EX250N is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a full HD and we think the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector[plb_3156294_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support 3D

The CP-EX250N does not support 3D, although keep in mind that most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the CP-EX250N also do not support 3D.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support 3D including the NEC U310W[plb_1531485_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Hitachi CP-EX250N does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the CP-EX250N also do not support wi-Fi.

Alternative projectors which also support wi-Fi that you might also want to look at include the Epson PowerLite 1761W[plb_1735741_price], or the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro[plb_1759924_price] which is also higher rated.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

Data projectors that were released around the same time as the CP-EX250N have projector brightnesss of between 110 ANSI lumens and 10,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 4,100 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of only 2,700 ANSI lumens, the CP-EX250N has one of the dimmer projector brightnesss amongst 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Data projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth considering include the Ricoh PJ WX2240 VP[plb_3258303_price] (3,100 ANSI lumens and higher rated), the Epson D6155W[plb_3060325_price] (3,500 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the Canon WUX400ST[plb_2983475_price] (4,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

Very Dim Projector Brightness (economic Mode)

The average projector brightness (economic mode) of similar spec projectors that came out around the same time as the CP-EX250N is 3,200 ANSI lumens. At only 1,800 ANSI lumen, the CP-EX250N has a quite dim projector brightness (economic mode) compared to most of the other projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the CP-EX250N.

Chart Edit

Very Small Bulb Power

The bulb powers of projectors of a comparable age and type to the CP-EX250N range from 170W to 4,000W, and the average bulb power is 320W. With a bulb power of only 215 Watts, the CP-EX250N has one of the smaller bulb powers amongst 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Loud Noise Level

The average noise level of 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the CP-EX250N is 36dB, and the noise levels range from 28dB to 42dB. At 38 decibels, the Hitachi CP-EX250N has a fairly loud noise level compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

If you would consider a data projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Ricoh PJ X6180N[plb_3011085_price] (38dB), or the Hitachi CP-EW250N[plb_2063296_price] (38dB).
