Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Hitachi CP-TW2505 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other data projectors of a similar spec and age to this projector.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think the Hitachi CP-X5550 (£1,059.60) which is cheaper is also worth considering.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the DH758UST (£1,069.63), or the DX3351 (£1,100) both from Vivitek are also worth considering.

Video

Supports Full HD

The CP-TW2505 supports full HD, as do most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as this multimedia projector.

Alternative multimedia projectors which support full HD currently available which you might want to consider include cheaper projectors such as the Acer U5520B (£1,042.66), or the Optoma EH490 (£1,025.47).

There are a number of other data projectors which also support full HD that you might want to consider including the Vivitek DH758UST (£1,069.63).

Projector

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of only 2,700 ANSI lumens, the CP-TW2505 has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than a year ago. The dimmest projector brightness of 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as this data projector is 600 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 16,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 4,100 ANSI lumens.

We compared this projector to all the other 2,700 ANSI lumens brightness projectors and we think cheaper data projectors such as the Epson EB-575W (£880.79) is also worth considering.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to look at the Hitachi CP-AX3005 (£852) (3,300 ANSI lumens and cheaper).
