6 Reasons For

Supports Full HD Projection

The Hitachi CP-WU8600 supports Full HD projection, which is unusual. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the CP-WU8600 do not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other latest 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors, the CP-WU8600 has a built-in speaker.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the Hitachi CP-WU8700[plb_3255984_price] is also worth considering.

WUXGA (1920x1200) Native Projector Resolution

The Hitachi CP-WU8600 has a maximum resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of a WXGA (1280x800) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution.

A WUXGA (1920x1200) native projector resolution is actually the best resolution across all latest similar spec multimedia projectors.

Across comparable types of data projector the worst resolution is XGA (1024x768).

Quite Big Matrix Size

10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the CP-WU8600 have matrix sizes of between 0.45" and 0.79", and the average matrix size is 0.66". The CP-WU8600 has a fairly big matrix size (0.75 inches) compared to most of the other recently released similar spec projectors.

Chart Edit

Two Built-In Speakers

The CP-WU8600 is a two built-in speaker data projector. Most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been available for the last year only have one built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Lamp Power

The average lamp power of 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for the last year is 280W, and the lamp power range from 190W to 430W. With a lamp power of 370 Watts, the Hitachi CP-WU8600 has a quite big lamp power compared to most of the other new data projectors.

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the CP-WU8600 do not support 3D image projection. The CP-WU8600 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The CP-WU8600 does not support WiFi connectivity, although keep in mind that most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the CP-WU8600 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Not Cheap

We checked 38 multimedia projectors that have been around for the last year and they range in price from £220 to £13,126. We think that this multimedia projector looks expensive compared to other multimedia projectors that have been around for the last year.

Very Short Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

With a service life of lamp in economic mode of only 4,000 hours, the Hitachi CP-WU8600 has one of the shorter service life of lamp in economic mode amongst projectors of this age. The service life of lamp in economic mode of recently released comparable spec projectors range from 3,000h to 24,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 9,000h.

Chart Edit

Very Short Lamp Service Life

The average lamp service life of comparable spec data projectors that have been around for the last year is 8,000h, and the lamp service lives range from 2,500h to 30,000h. At only 3,000 hours, the Hitachi CP-WU8600 has a quite short lamp service life compared to most of the other recently released 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors.

Chart Edit

Quite Loud Noise Level in Economy Mode

The CP-WU8600 has one of the louder noise levels in economy mode (30 decibels) amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. The average noise level in economy mode of recently released 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors is 29dB.

Chart Edit

Heavy

Across all the 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched in the last year the weights range from 2.2g to 28kg. With a weight of 11.1 kilograms, the CP-WU8600 is one of the heavier latest 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.
