Poor Expert Reviews

This data projector received an expert rating of 60 out of 100 from pcworld.pl. That puts this projector in the bottom 10% of all the projectors of this type and age.


Energy

OK Running Costs

The CPWX12WN is typical compared to the other 91 projectors of a comparable age and spec that we have analysed for running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the CPWX12WN will cost £103 over 1 year to run.


Other

Released Over Four Years Ago

It was December 2012 when this projector was released.


Video

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other projectors of this age and type, the Hitachi CPWX12WN does not support full HD.

There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors which also support full HD which you might want to look at including the NP-PA600X, or the NP-PH1000 both from NEC or the Optoma EH503.

Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The CPWX12WN has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a similar age to this multimedia projector.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the XJ-A256, and the XJ-A246 both from Casio or the AAXA Technologies LED Showtime 3D which all of have better reviews are also worth considering.

Projector

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The average projector brightness of projectors that are a comparable age to this projector is 4,200 ANSI lumens. The CPWX12WN has one of the dimmer projector brightnesses (only 2,600 ANSI lumens) amongst comparable spec projectors of this age.

Other 2,600 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors currently available which you might want to look at include because of their better review scores, the PowerLite 1761W, or the EB-1751 (£519) both from Epson or the NEC U260W + NP01SK3D.

If you want a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the CP-EX250N (2,700 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the CPEX250 (2,700 ANSI lumens and higher rated) both from Hitachi or the Mitsubishi Electric EW330U (3,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

Performance

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The CPWX12WN has one of the quieter noise levels (only 35 decibels) amongst projectors of this age. Comparable spec data projectors that have been available for a similar time to this projector have noise levels of between 28dB and 73dB, and the average noise level is 37dB.

We compared this data projector to all the other 35dB noise level projectors and we think the PT-DZ680, the PT-DX610, and the PT-DW640 all from Panasonic which all of have better reviews are also worth considering.
