4 Reasons For

Very Long Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

Across all the data projectors of a similar type and age to the CP-EX400 the service life of lamp (economic mode)s range from 2,500h to 10,000h. When compared to other data projectors of a comparable type and age to the CP-EX400, the CP-EX400's service life of lamp (economic mode) of 10,000 hours is one of the longest.

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp

With a service life of lamp of 5,000 hours, the Hitachi CP-EX400 has one of the longer service life of lamps amongst 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. Across all the multimedia projectors of this type and age the service life of lamps range from 200h to 30,000h.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most frequently found AC input voltage on data projectors of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Very Light

The lightest comparable spec projector that is a similar age to the CP-EX400 is 370g heavy, the heaviest is 23kg, and the average weight is 6.4kg. At only 2.9 kilograms, the CP-EX400 is fairly light compared to most of the other projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the CP-EX400.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Hitachi CP-EX400 does not have a built-in speaker(s), unlike most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago which have a built-in speaker(s).

It is worth considering other multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Epson PowerLite 935W[plb_1875522_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Full HD

Most 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago do not support full HD. The CP-EX400 is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

Other projectors which also support full HD that you might also want to consider include the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector[plb_3156294_price].

Does Not Support 3D

Like most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-EX400, the CP-EX400 does not support 3D.

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

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the CP-EX400, the CP-EX400 does not support wi-Fi.

It is worth also looking at other data projectors which also support wi-Fi including the Epson PowerLite 1761W[plb_1735741_price], or the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro[plb_1759924_price] which is also higher rated.

Very Low RMS Rated Power

With an RMS rated power of only 1 Watt, the CP-EX400 has one of the lower RMS rated powers amongst comparable spec multimedia projectors of this age. 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the CP-EX400 have RMS rated powers of between 1W and 19W, and the average RMS rated power is 6.8W.

Chart Edit

Very Small Bulb Power

The smallest bulb power of projectors of this spec and age is 170W, the biggest is 4,000W, and the average bulb power is 320W. The CP-EX400 has one of the smaller bulb powers (only 225 Watts) amongst projectors of this age.
