Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The CPX2541WN has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other data projectors of a similar spec and age to this projector.

There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available that you might want to consider including the V302X (£386.89), or the V332X (£376.21) both from NEC and both of which are cheaper.

It is worth considering alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Acer P1510 (£399.99).

Networking

Supports Wi-Fi

The Hitachi CPX2541WN supports Wi-Fi. Most of the other similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to this data projector do not support Wi-Fi.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support Wi-Fi including the Acer P1510 (£399.99), or the Epson EB-945H (£465.89).

Has an Ethernet LAN

The CPX2541WN has an Ethernet LAN. Most of the other projectors that have been around for a similar time to this projector also have an Ethernet LAN.

Video

Supports Full HD

The Hitachi CPX2541WN supports full HD. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than a year ago also support full HD.

Alternative data projectors which support full HD currently available which you might want to consider include cheaper data projectors such as the V302X (£386.89), or the V332X (£376.21) both from NEC.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a full HD and we think the Acer P1510 (£399.99) is also worth considering.

Only 525i Video Mode

This projector supports a 480i|480p|525i|625i|720p|1080i|1080p supported video modes, which is typical of many 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

Projector

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of only 2,700 ANSI lumens, the CPX2541WN has a very dim projector brightness compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this spec and age. The projector brightnesses of 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to this data projector range from 600 ANSI lumens to 16,000 ANSI lumens.

It may also be worth considering one of the other 2,700 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including cheaper projectors such as the Epson EB-S27 (£329.97).

If this Hitachi projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to consider the Vivitek DX255 (£335) (3,200 ANSI lumens) which is also cheaper.

Quite Loud Noise Level

The Hitachi CPX2541WN has a quite loud noise level (37 decibels) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to this multimedia projector. Across all the multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to this multimedia projector the noise levels range from 27dB to 48dB.

We compared all the other 37dB noise level projectors to this data projector and we think the Epson EB-S27 (£329.97) which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Data projectors with a louder noise level that might be worth considering include the EB-945H (£465.89) (37dB), or the EB-98H (£419.09) (37dB) both from Epson.
