Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other projectors that were launched more than a year ago, the CP-S240 has a built-in speaker.

There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker which you might want to also look at including a better rated multimedia projector such as the Benq MW811, the Hitachi CP-X250, or the Gigabyte BRIX (£104.12).

Supports Five Video Modes

The Hitachi CP-S240 has a greater number of supported video mode than most similar spec projectors that have been around for a comparable time to it. This projector supports a 720p video mode, which is the most frequently supported video mode supported by similar spec projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the CP-S240. The video modes "1080i", "480i", "480p" and "576i" are also supported by this Hitachi projector.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most of the one year old similar spec multimedia projectors do not support Full HD projection, including the CP-S240.

It is worth considering alternative projectors with a Full HD projection including the Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 8345.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most of the similar spec data projectors that are one year old do not support 3D image projection, including the Hitachi CP-S240.

Alternative multimedia projectors with a 3D image projection that you might want to consider include the Optoma X315 (£599.21), or the Benq MX711 (£827.99).

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The CP-S240 does not support WiFi connectivity, although this is within the context that most of the other projectors of this age and spec also do not support WiFi connectivity.

There are a number of different projectors with a WiFi connectivity that you might want to consider including the Gigabyte BRIX (£104.12), the Sony VPL-EW226 (£355.51), or the DELL M900HD (£391.32).

Only SVGA (800x600) Native Projector Resolution

The CP-S240 has a maximum resolution of SVGA (800x600). That's 53% less resolution than a WXGA (1280x800) multimedia projector, which is the most frequently found resolution. The best resolution of all comparable spec projectors that have been available for a similar time to the CP-S240 is DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) and the worst is nHD (640x360).

Alternative projectors that have a resolution of SVGA (800x600) that you might want to also look at include a higher rated product such as the Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 500 (£214.34), or the Acer X1173.

If you are looking for a projector with a higher resolution then you might want to also look at the Aiptek MobileCinema Q20 (540p (960x540 and higher rated) and higher rated), or the Hitachi CP-X250 (XGA (1024x768 and higher rated) and higher rated).

Small Lamp Power

With a lamp power of only 180 Watts, the CP-S240 has one of the smaller lamp power amongst multimedia projectors of this age. The lamp power of comparable spec projectors that are one year old range from 50W to 400W, and the average lamp power is 240W.

Very Small RMS Rated Power

At only 1 Watt, the CP-S240 has a fairly small RMS rated power compared to most of the other data projectors that were released around the same time as the CP-S240. The RMS rated power of projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the CP-S240 range from 1W to 20W.

Very Small Minimum Vertical Synchronization

Across all the projectors that came out more than a year ago the minimum vertical synchronization range from 0.048kHz to 50kHz, and the average minimum vertical synchronization is 30kHz. At only 0.05 kilohertz, the CP-S240 has a fairly small minimum vertical synchronization compared to most of the other one year old multimedia projectors.

Very Small Number of Colours

At only 16.7 million, the CP-S240 has a quite small number of colours compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that are older than a year. The average number of colours of comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to the CP-S240 is 440M.

Average Running Costs

The CP-S240 has an average running cost of £102 over 1 year based on average energy prices, which is typical compared to the other data projectors of this type and age.

Over a Year Old

It was over a year ago when Hitachi released the CP-S240.

Average Noise Level

At 38 decibels, the CP-S240 has a pretty standard noise level compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that are more than a year old.

We compared all the other 38dB noise level projectors to this multimedia projector and we think the Hitachi CP-X250 which have a better Kagoo Rating™ are also worth considering.

Average Projector Brightness

At 2,000 ANSI lumens, the CP-S240 has a pretty standard projector brightness compared to most of the other one year old comparable spec data projectors.

It is worth also looking at other 2000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors including the Hitachi CP-X250 which have a better Kagoo Rating™.

Projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth considering include the Infocus IN1112A (£653.81) (2200 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the Benq MW811 (2500 ANSI lumens and higher rated).
