4 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the CP-WU5505, the Hitachi CP-WU5505 has a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker to this projector and we think cheaper projectors such as the Hitachi CP-WU5500[plb_3255479_price] is also worth considering.

There are a number of alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker which you might also want to consider including the PT-EX620EJ[pl_3898815_price], or the PT-EX620LEJ[pl_3898816_price] both from Panasonic.

WUXGA (1920x1200) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the Hitachi CP-WU5505 is WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of a WXGA (1280x800) multimedia projector, which is the most frequently found resolution.

This data projector's resolution (WUXGA (1920x1200)) is in fact the best resolution amongst all 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the CP-WU5505.

An XGA (1024x768) native projector resolution is the worst resolution across similar types of data projector.

Three HDMI Ports

Most of the other comparable spec projectors that came out around the same time as the CP-WU5505 only have between one and two HDMI ports, however the CP-WU5505 has three HDMI ports.

Chart Edit

Quite Bright Brightness in Economy Mode

With a brightness in economy mode of 3,640 ANSI lumens, the Hitachi CP-WU5505 has one of the brighter brightness in economy mode amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. New projectors have brightness in economy mode of between 1,600 ANSI lumens and 4,100 ANSI lumens.

5 Reasons Against

Price Increase of £392.22

The price of the CP-WU5505 has increased by £392.22 in the last 6 days.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The CP-WU5505 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out in the last 12 months also do not support Full HD projection.

It is worth also looking at alternative multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection including the PT-FZ570[pl_3434606_price], or the PT-EW650[pl_3431096_price] both from Panasonic.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other similar spec projectors that were launched in the last year, the CP-WU5505 does not support 3D image projection.

Other multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might also want to consider include the PT-FZ570[pl_3434606_price], or the PT-EW650[pl_3431096_price] both from Panasonic.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched in the last 12 months, the CP-WU5505 does not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Quite Loud Noise Level

At 38 decibels, the Hitachi CP-WU5505 has a fairly loud noise level compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that have been around for the last year. 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the CP-WU5505 have noise levels of between 28dB and 41dB.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 38dB noise level data projectors currently available including the Hitachi CP-WU5500[plb_3255479_price] which is cheaper.

2 Other reasons to consider the Hitachi CP-WU5505

Released Eleven Months Ago

This Hitachi multimedia projector has been on the market for eleven months.

Average Projector Brightness

At 5,200 ANSI lumens, the CP-WU5505 has a pretty average projector brightness compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the CP-WU5505.

We compared this data projector to all the other 5,200 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors and we think cheaper projectors such as the Hitachi CP-WU5500[plb_3255479_price] is also worth considering.

If this projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to consider the PT-EW650[pl_3431096_price] (5,800 ANSI lumens), the PT-EX620EJ[pl_3898815_price] (6,200 ANSI lumens), or the PT-EX620LEJ[pl_3898816_price] (6,200 ANSI lumens) all from Panasonic.
