2 January 2010
Conclusion: The CP-D10 is a great solution for classrooms and conference rooms where a large screen size is not needed, space is at a premium and keeping both the projector and wiring out of the way is desirable. The CP-D10 fares well when compared with other short throw projectors, like the previously reviewed Sanyo PLC-XL50 and Epson Powerlite 400W.

Pros: Short throw allows it to be wall mounted above the screen, Good brightness at almost 2000 lumens, Longer than average lamp life in "eco-mode" - 4000 hours, Three sets of audio inputs, plus audio out, Line templates for writing on whiteboard presentations, Very good overall image, even at higher resolutions than native resolution, Very good warranty, Low maintenance dust filter
Cons: No digital (HDMI or DVI) inputs, Difficult to set up as the smallest movement causes big changes on-screen, No networking ability, One-watt built-in speaker is not loud enough for most uses, Remote has too many buttons the same size
