3 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other comparable spec projectors that came out around the same time as the CPAW2505, the Hitachi CPAW2505 has a built-in speaker(s).

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including a cheaper projector such as the Hitachi CPX4041WN[plb_3393438_price] or you might consider a higher rated projector such as the Epson PowerLite 955W[plb_2181186_price].

We compared all the other projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think the NEC M303WS[plb_3113387_price] is also worth considering.

Does Not Support 3D

Like most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the CPAW2505, the CPAW2505 does not support 3D.

It is worth also looking at alternative projectors which also support 3D including the NEC M303WS[plb_3113387_price], the Benq MW855UST[plb_3333837_price], or the Panasonic PT-VX425N[plb_3430009_price].

We compared all the other projectors which also support full HD to this projector and we think the NEC M323W[plb_3058192_price] which is also cheaper is also worth considering.

4 Other reasons to consider the Hitachi CPAW2505

Average Running Costs

The average 1 year running cost of the CPAW2505 is £115 based on typical energy prices and usage levels, which is typical compared to the other 90 data projectors of this spec and age.

Released Over a Year Ago

Hitachi released the CPAW2505 over a year ago.

Average Noise Level

At 37 decibels, the CPAW2505 has a pretty standard noise level compared to most of the other data projectors of this age and type.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other 37dB noise level projectors and we think the PowerLite 955W[pl_2181186_price], and the 965H[pl_2953833_price] both from Epson which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you would consider a data projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Panasonic PT-VX425N[plb_3430009_price] (37dB).
