3 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker

The CP-WU5500 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for the last year.

There are a number of other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might want to consider including the Hitachi CP-WX5500[plb_3397843_price] which is cheaper.

There are a number of alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker that you might want to look at including the Hitachi CP-WU5505[plb_3255480_price], or the Panasonic PT-EX620EJ[plb_3898815_price].

The price of the CP-WU5500 has increased by £106.07 in the last 44 days.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Hitachi CP-WU5500 does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the CP-WU5500 also do not support 3D image projection.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a 3D image projection and we think the EH490[pl_3806984_price], or the W490[pl_3806985_price] both from Optoma is also worth considering.
