Other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might also want to consider include the AAXA Technologies P450[plb_3117063_price], or the Canon WUX-450[plb_2199632_price] which has better reviews.

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution

The CPWX12WN has a maximum resolution of WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than the most frequently found projector native resolution of XGA (1024x768). The resolution of all data projectors of this age and spec ranges from XGA (1024x768) to WUXGA (1920x1200).

Chart Edit

Two USB 2.0 Ports Quantitys

The CPWX12WN is a two USB 2.0 ports quantity projector.

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

The shortest service life of lamp (economic mode) of projectors of a similar type and age to the CPWX12WN is 2,500h and the longest is 10,000h. At 5,000 hours, the CPWX12WN has a fairly long service life of lamp (economic mode) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the CPWX12WN.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level (economic Mode)

The noise level (economic mode)s of data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the CPWX12WN range from 26dB to 37dB, and the average noise level (economic mode) is 30dB. With a noise level (economic mode) of only 28 decibels, the CPWX12WN has one of the quieter noise level (economic mode)s amongst 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Light

The lightest 2000:1 contrast ratio projector that has been available for more than two years is 370g heavy and the heaviest is 23kg. The CPWX12WN is quite light (only 2.3 kilograms) compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for more than two years.

8 Reasons Against

Expert Reviews Are Poor

Projector expert review website pcworld.pl scored this 2000:1 contrast ratio projector 60 out of 100. It seems that experts really don't rate this data projector very highly.

Only 100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 120V AC input voltage, which is typical of many comparable spec multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD

The Hitachi CPWX12WN does not support full HD, although keep in mind that most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched around the same time as the CPWX12WN also do not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in alternative data projectors which also support full HD including the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector[plb_3156294_price], the Optoma EX855[plb_1715998_price], or the Panasonic PT-DZ680ULK[plb_2943449_price].

Does Not Support 3D

The Hitachi CPWX12WN does not support 3D, although it is worth noting that most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been around for more than two years also do not support 3D.

Other multimedia projectors which also support 3D that you might also want to look at include the U300X[pl_1530119_price], the U260W[pl_1531484_price], or the U310W[pl_1531485_price] all from NEC which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the CPWX12WN do not support wi-Fi. The CPWX12WN 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 Epson PowerLite 1761W[plb_1735741_price], the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro[plb_1759924_price], or the Casio XJ-A256[plb_1787918_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of only 2,600 ANSI lumens, the Hitachi CPWX12WN has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other data projectors of a similar age and spec to the CPWX12WN. The projector brightnesss of 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago range from 110 ANSI lumens to 10,000 ANSI lumens.

There are a number of other 2,600 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors currently available that you might also want to consider including because of it's better review score, the PowerLite 1761W[pl_1735741_price], the EB-1751[pl_1748931_price], or the PowerLite 1751[pl_1735743_price] all from Epson.

If you would prefer a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the CP-EX250N[pl_2906237_price] (2,700 ANSI lumens), or the CP-EX250[pl_1874387_price] (2,700 ANSI lumens) both from Hitachi or the Canon LV-7390[plb_2366057_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens) which is also higher rated.
