When compared to other data projectors of a similar type and age to the CP-WU8461, the CP-WU8461's maximum horizontal synchronization of 106 kilohertz is one of the highest. Data projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-WU8461 have maximum horizontal synchronization of between 80kHz and 110kHz.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The Hitachi CP-WU8461 has more VGA (D-Sub) ports than most of the projectors of this age and type. This projector is a three VGA (D-Sub) port projector compared to most of the projectors that are a similar age to the CP-WU8461 which only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports

The CP-WU8461 has more HDMI ports than most of the similar spec data projectors that came out more than a year ago. Most of the 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-WU8461 only have one HDMI port, however this multimedia projector has two HDMI ports.

Chart Edit

Fairly High RMS Rated Power

The Hitachi CP-WU8461 has a fairly high RMS rated power (16 Watts) compared to most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the CP-WU8461. The lowest RMS rated power of 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released one year ago is 1W, the highest is 20W, and the average RMS rated power is 11W.

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 typical of many comparable spec projectors that have been available for a similar time to it.

Chart Edit

Very Short Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

Projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the CP-WU8461 have service life of lamp in economic mode of between 2,500h and 10,000h. The CP-WU8461 has one of the shorter service life of lamp in economic mode (only 2,500 hours) amongst 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Not Cheap

The cheapeast projectors of a similar spec and age that we found costs £816 and the most expensive costs £15,670. We think that this data projector looks expensive for a multimedia projector of a similar age and spec.

3 Other reasons to consider the Hitachi CP-WU8461

Released Over a Year Ago

Hitachi released the CP-WU8461 over a year ago.

Average Running Costs

Based on typical energy prices and usage levels we estimate that the CP-WU8461 will cost £179 over 1 year to run, which is typical compared to the other 14 data projectors of this type and age.

Average Projector Brightness

At 6,000 ANSI lumens, the CP-WU8461 has a pretty average projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that came out more than a year ago.

We compared this projector to all the other 6,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors and we think cheaper data projectors such as the Epson EB-G6770WU[plb_3016107_price] is also worth considering.
