10 Reasons For

Supports Full HD Projection

The CP-WU8460 supports Full HD projection, which is unusual. Most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than two years do not support Full HD projection.

There are a number of other projectors which support Full HD projection currently available that you might want to consider including because of it's better review score, the Epson 475Wi (£1,632.80), or the Hitachi CP-WX8255A.

Very Bright Projector Brightness

Projectors of this type and age have projector brightness of between 100 ANSI lumens and 8,000 ANSI lumens. At 6,000 ANSI lumens, the CP-WU8460 has a fairly bright projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the CP-WU8460.

Chart Edit

WUXGA (1920x1200) Native Projector Resolution

The Hitachi CP-WU8460 has a maximum resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of the most frequently found native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800).

This projector's resolution (WUXGA (1920x1200)) is in fact the best resolution across all comparable spec data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the CP-WU8460.

Across comparable types of projector the worst resolution is SVGA (800x600).

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

This multimedia projector supports a graphics resolution of 1024 x 768 (XGA)|1280 x 1024 (SXGA)|1280 x 768 (WXGA)|1280 x 800 (WXGA)|1360 x 768 (WXGA)|1400 x 1050 (SXGA+)|1440 x 900 (WXGA+)|1600 x 1200 (UXGA)|640 x 480 (VGA)|800 x 600 (SVGA), which is the most frequently supported graphics resolution on projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Very Big Optical Zoom

The optical zoom of the CP-WU8460 of 2 times zoom factor is one of the biggest amongst projectors of this age and type. The average optical zoom of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the CP-WU8460 is 1.5x.

Chart Edit

Fairly High Maximum Horizontal Synchronization

The maximum horizontal synchronization of projectors of this type and age range from 91kHz to 110kHz. The Hitachi CP-WU8460 has one of the higher maximum horizontal synchronization (106 kilohertz) amongst comparable spec data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports

The CP-WU8460 has more HDMI ports than most of the projectors of this type and age. Most of the multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the CP-WU8460 only have one HDMI port, however this multimedia projector has two HDMI ports.

Chart Edit

Very Big Lamp Power

Across all the multimedia projectors of this age and spec the lamp power range from 140W to 400W, and the average lamp power is 240W. The CP-WU8460 has one of the biggest lamp power (365 Watts) amongst data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This multimedia projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most frequently found AC input voltage on projectors that have been available for a similar time to it.

Chart Edit

10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Transfer Rate

This multimedia projector has a 10|100 Mbit/s ethernet LAN data transfer rate, which is the most frequently found ethernet LAN data transfer rate on 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago.

12 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The Hitachi CP-WU8460 does not have a built-in speaker. Most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the CP-WU8460 do have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Hitachi CP-WU8460 does not support WiFi connectivity, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the CP-WU8460 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

It is worth considering other data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the NEC NP-UM330 which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The CP-WU8460 does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and spec to the CP-WU8460 also do not support 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support 3D image projection including the NEC NP-M311W which is also higher rated.

Running Costs Are High

The average running cost of the CP-WU8460 is £161 over 1 year based on typical energy prices and usage levels, which is in the most expensive 9% of all 92 projectors of a comparable type and age.

Chart

Very Short Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

At only 2,500 hours, the Hitachi CP-WU8460 has a fairly short service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the CP-WU8460. The shortest service life of lamp in economic mode of comparable spec projectors that were released more than two years ago is 230h and the longest is 20,000h.

Chart Edit

Very Short Lamp Service Life

At only 2,000 hours, the CP-WU8460 has a fairly short lamp service life compared to most of the other projectors of this age and type. Across all the data projectors of this age and type the lamp service lives range from 1,500h to 30,000h, and the average lamp service life is 4,400h.

Chart Edit

Very Low Maximum Vertical Synchronization

The maximum vertical synchronization of projectors of a similar type and age to the CP-WU8460 range from 0.085kHz to 120kHz. With a maximum vertical synchronization of only 0.12 kilohertz, the Hitachi CP-WU8460 has one of the lower maximum vertical synchronization amongst 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Only One USB 2.0 Port

The CP-WU8460 is a one USB 2.0 port data projector.

Chart Edit

Quite Loud Noise Level

Projectors of this type and age have noise levels of between 26dB and 45dB, and the average noise level is 35dB. With a noise level of 39 decibels, the CP-WU8460 has one of the louder noise levels amongst 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Projectors with a louder noise level that might be worth considering include the CP-WX8265 (£2,456.40) (39dB), or the CP-X8170 (£1,961.13) (39dB) both from Hitachi.

Most projectors of a comparable type and age to the CP-WU8460 have between one and two component video in ports, including the CP-WU8460 which has one component video in port.

Chart Edit

Heavy

The CP-WU8460 is one of the heavier 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years (8.8 kilograms) amongst 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. Across all the 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the CP-WU8460 the weights range from 230g to 30kg.

Chart Edit

Quite Loud Noise Level in Economy Mode

With a noise level in economy mode of 33 decibels, the CP-WU8460 has one of the louder noise levels in economy mode amongst 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. The quietest noise level in economy mode of similar spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than two years is 26dB, the loudest is 35dB, and the average noise level in economy mode is 30dB.
