4 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other data projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-X5550, the CP-X5550 has a built-in speaker(s).

Chart Edit

Three HDMI Ports Quantitys

The Hitachi CP-X5550 has more HDMI ports quantitys than most of the latest similar spec data projectors. This data projector is a three HDMI ports quantity projector compared to most of the recently released data projectors which only have between one and two HDMI ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Quite High RMS Rated Power

The lowest RMS rated power of latest multimedia projectors is 1W, the highest is 20W, and the average RMS rated power is 14W. At 16 Watts, the CP-X5550 has a fairly high RMS rated power compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the CP-X5550.

Chart Edit

Very Bright Projector Brightness (economic Mode)

With a projector brightness (economic mode) of 4,060 ANSI lumens, the CP-X5550 has one of the brightest projector brightness (economic mode)s amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. The average projector brightness (economic mode) of 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released in the last 12 months is 2,900 ANSI lumens.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

Most data projectors that were released around the same time as the CP-X5550 do not support full HD. The Hitachi CP-X5550 is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D

The CP-X5550 does not support 3D. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the CP-X5550 also do not support 3D.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out in the last year do not support wi-Fi. The CP-X5550 is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a wi-Fi and we think the Hitachi CP-WX5500[plb_3397843_price] is also worth considering.

Only XGA (1024x768) Projector Native Resolution

The CP-X5550 has a maximum resolution of XGA (1024x768). That's 23% less resolution than the most common projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800).

An XGA (1024x768) projector native resolution is in fact the worst resolution amongst all projectors that were launched in the last 12 months.

Other multimedia projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the CP-WU5500[pl_3255479_price] (38dB), or the CP-WU5505[pl_3255480_price] (38dB) both from Hitachi.
