Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Hitachi CP-X5550 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been available for a similar time to this projector also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think cheaper data projectors such as the Optoma EH490 (£1,038.35), the Acer U5520B (£1,042.66), and the Hitachi CP-TW2505 (£1,038.68) is also worth considering.

Quite Loud Noise Level

The noise levels of multimedia projectors that are a similar age to this data projector range from 27dB to 48dB, and the average noise level is 34dB. At 38 decibels, the CP-X5550 has a quite loud noise level compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as this data projector.

If you would consider a projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Hitachi CP-TW2505 (£1,038.68) (36dB and cheaper), or the Epson 1970w (£1,037.00) (39dB and cheaper).
