6 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other recently released 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors, the CP-WU8700 has a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the Hitachi CP-WU8600[plb_3255968_price] which is cheaper.

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

Across all the latest multimedia projectors the projector brightness range from 450 ANSI lumens to 10,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 4,900 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of 7,000 ANSI lumens, the Hitachi CP-WU8700 has a fairly bright projector brightness compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the CP-WU8700.

Chart Edit

WUXGA (1920x1200) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the CP-WU8700 is WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of the most frequently found native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800).

A WUXGA (1920x1200) native projector resolution is actually the best resolution amongst all projectors that are a similar age to the CP-WU8700.

Amongst similar types of projector the worst resolution is XGA (1024x768).

Chart Edit

Two Built-In Speakers

Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the CP-WU8700 only have one built-in speaker, however the CP-WU8700 has two built-in speakers.

Chart Edit

Very Big Lamp Power

With a lamp power of 430 Watts, the CP-WU8700 has one of the biggest lamp power amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. Across all the comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the CP-WU8700 the lamp power range from 190W to 430W, and the average lamp power is 280W.

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the CP-WU8700 do not support Full HD projection. The Hitachi CP-WU8700 is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the Hitachi CP-WU8600[plb_3255968_price] which is also cheaper is also worth considering.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The CP-WU8700 does not support 3D image projection, although this is within the context that most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to the CP-WU8700 also do not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The CP-WU8700 does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other latest similar spec multimedia projectors also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Not Cheap

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

Fairly Loud Noise Level

At 37 decibels, the CP-WU8700 has a fairly loud noise level compared to most of the other recently released 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors. The quietest noise level of similar spec multimedia projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the CP-WU8700 is 28dB and the loudest is 41dB.

Alternative projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the Hitachi CP-WU8600[plb_3255968_price] (35dB) which is also cheaper.

Chart Edit

Very Short Lamp Service Life

The lamp service lives of recently released 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors range from 2,500h to 30,000h, and the average lamp service life is 8,000h.

Chart Edit
