14 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Hitachi CP-WU8450 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other projectors of this age and type also have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

WUXGA (1920x1200) Native Projector Resolution

The Hitachi CP-WU8450 has a maximum resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of a WXGA (1280x800) multimedia projector, which is the most frequently found resolution.

A WUXGA (1920x1200) native projector resolution is actually the best resolution across all comparable spec data projectors that have been on the market for more than two years.

The worst resolution across similar types of projector is SVGA (800x600).

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 5,000 ANSI lumens, the CP-WU8450 has a fairly bright projector brightness compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years. The dimmest projector brightness of projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the CP-WU8450 is 100 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 8,000 ANSI lumens.

If this data projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to consider the Hitachi CP-WX8255A[plb_1884022_price] (5,500 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

Chart Edit

Three USB 2.0 Ports

The CP-WU8450 has more USB 2.0 ports than most of the similar spec multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the CP-WU8450. Most of the projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the CP-WU8450 only have between one and two USB 2.0 ports, however this Hitachi data projector has three USB 2.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Two Built-In Speakers

The CP-WU8450 has more built-in speakers than most of the 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago. This projector is a two built-in speaker data projector compared to most of the 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago which only have one built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The CP-WU8450 is a three VGA (D-Sub) port data projector. Most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a similar time to the CP-WU8450 only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports

The CP-WU8450 has more HDMI ports than most of the projectors of this age and type. Most of the 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the CP-WU8450 only have one HDMI port, however this projector has two HDMI ports.

Chart Edit

Two Audio in Ports

The Hitachi CP-WU8450 is a two audio in port data projector. Most of the other multimedia projectors of this spec and age have between one and two audio in ports.

Chart Edit

Quite High RMS Rated Power

With an RMS rated power of 16 Watts, the Hitachi CP-WU8450 has a fairly high RMS rated power compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the CP-WU8450. The average RMS rated power of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the CP-WU8450 is 11W, and the RMS rated power range from 0.5W to 20W.

Very Bright Colour Light Output

The dimmest colour light output of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago is 2.6 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 5,000 ANSI lumens, and the average colour light output is 2,900 ANSI lumens. At 5,000 ANSI lumens, the Hitachi CP-WU8450 has a very bright colour light output compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the CP-WU8450.

Chart Edit

Very Bright White Light Output

At 5,000 ANSI lumens, the CP-WU8450 has a very bright white light output compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years. Multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the CP-WU8450 have white light outputs of between 2.6 ANSI lumens and 5,000 ANSI lumens, and the average white light output is 2,800 ANSI lumens.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Hitachi CP-WU8450 does not support 3D image projection, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other multimedia projectors that were launched more than two years ago also do not support 3D image projection.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a 3D image projection and we think the NEC NP-M311W[plb_1525270_price] is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The CP-WU8450 does not support Full HD projection, although it is worth noting that most of the other data projectors that have been available for a similar time to the CP-WU8450 also do not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other projectors which also support Full HD projection to this multimedia projector and we think the Epson 475Wi[plb_1778250_price], or the Hitachi CP-WX8255A[plb_1884022_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The CP-WU8450 does not support WiFi connectivity, although keep in mind that most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago also do not support WiFi connectivity.

There are a number of other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity that you might also want to look at including the NEC NP-UM330[plb_1528333_price].

Very Short Lamp Service Life

The CP-WU8450 has a fairly short lamp service life (only 2,500 hours) compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the CP-WU8450. Across all the similar spec multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago the lamp service lives range from 1,500h to 30,000h.

Chart Edit

Heavy

With a weight of 8.8 kilograms, the CP-WU8450 is fairly heavy compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years. The lightest comparable spec multimedia projector that has been on the market for a similar time to the CP-WU8450 is 230g heavy, the heaviest is 30kg, and the average weight is 4.9kg.

Chart Edit

Very Wide

Across all the data projectors of a comparable age and spec to the CP-WU8450 the widths range from 120mm to 510mm. When compared to other data projectors of a similar age and spec to the CP-WU8450 that we have checked the width of, the Hitachi CP-WU8450's width of 498 millimeters is one of the widest.

3 Other reasons to consider the Hitachi CP-WU8450

OK Running Costs

The CP-WU8450 is typical compared to the other 92 projectors of this type and age that we have analysed for 1 year running costs. Based on average energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the CP-WU8450 is £117.

Released Over Four Years Ago

It was over four years ago when this data projector was released.

Average Noise Level

At 35 decibels, the Hitachi CP-WU8450 has a pretty average noise level compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age.

We compared this data projector to all the other 35dB noise level projectors and we think the Epson BrightLink 485Wi[plb_1778249_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Multimedia projectors with a louder noise level that might also be worth considering include the Hitachi CP-WU8440[plb_1857317_price] (35dB).
