13 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Hitachi CP-WU8440 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the CP-WU8440.

There are a number of alternative data projectors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might want to consider including the NEC UM330[plb_1525062_price] which has better reviews; or the Sony VPL-SW630[plb_2442309_price] which is cheaper.

There are a number of other projectors which also have a built-in speaker which you might want to look at including the Optoma EW695[plb_1719594_price].

WUXGA (1920x1200) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the Hitachi CP-WU8440 is WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of the most common native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800).

This projector's resolution (WUXGA (1920x1200)) is in fact the best resolution across all 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years.

A SVGA (800x600) native projector resolution is the worst resolution across comparable types of projector.

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

The CP-WU8440 has one of the brighter projector brightness (4,200 ANSI lumens) amongst 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. The average projector brightness of projectors that were launched around the same time as the CP-WU8440 is 3,500 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

The CP-WU8440 is a three component video in port projector. Most of the other data projectors of a comparable type and age to the CP-WU8440 only have between one and two component video in ports.

Chart Edit

Two Audio Out Ports

The Hitachi CP-WU8440 is a two audio out port data projector. Most of the other data projectors that were released more than two years ago have between one and five audio out ports.

Chart Edit

Three USB 2.0 Ports

Most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the CP-WU8440 only have between one and two USB 2.0 ports, however the Hitachi CP-WU8440 has three USB 2.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Two Built-In Speakers

Most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a similar time to the CP-WU8440 only have one built-in speaker, however the CP-WU8440 has two built-in speakers.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports

The Hitachi CP-WU8440 has more HDMI ports than most of the multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the CP-WU8440. This Hitachi multimedia projector is a two HDMI port projector compared to most of the multimedia projectors of this spec and age which only have one HDMI port.

Chart Edit

Two Audio in Ports

The CP-WU8440 is a two audio in port projector.

Chart Edit

Across all the projectors of a comparable spec and age to the CP-WU8440 the RMS rated power range from 0.5W to 20W. At 16 Watts, the CP-WU8440 has a fairly high RMS rated power compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Quite Bright Colour Light Output

The colour light outputs of projectors of a comparable type and age to the CP-WU8440 range from 2.6 ANSI lumens to 5,000 ANSI lumens, and the average colour light output is 2,900 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The CP-WU8440 does not support 3D image projection, although this is within the context that most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years also do not support 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Optoma EW695[plb_1719594_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The CP-WU8440 does not support Full HD projection, although it is worth noting that most of the other data projectors of a comparable type and age to the CP-WU8440 also do not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The CP-WU8440 does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the CP-WU8440 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

There are a number of other multimedia projectors which also support WiFi connectivity which you might want to consider including the VPL-SW630[pl_2442309_price], or the VPL-SX630[pl_2576926_price] both from Sony.

Very Short Lamp Service Life

Across all the similar spec multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago the lamp service lives range from 1,500h to 30,000h. The Hitachi CP-WU8440 has one of the shorter lamp service lives (only 2,500 hours) amongst similar spec data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Expensive

The price range of data projectors of a comparable age and spec is from £107 to £2,457. We think that this multimedia projector looks expensive compared to other data projectors of a comparable age and spec.

Heavy

The CP-WU8440 is quite heavy (8.7 kilograms) compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the CP-WU8440. The weights of similar spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the CP-WU8440 range from 230g to 30kg.

Chart Edit

Very Wide

The average width of data projectors that have been around for a similar time to the CP-WU8440 is 360mm, and the widths range from 120mm to 510mm. With a width of 498 millimeters, the CP-WU8440 is one of the wider data projectors of a comparable type and age to the CP-WU8440 amongst 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Released Over Four Years Ago

This Hitachi projector was released over four years ago.

Average Noise Level

At 35 decibels, the CP-WU8440 has a fairly standard noise level compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and spec to the CP-WU8440.
