7 Reasons For

Just Released Eight Months Ago

This 10000:1 contrast ratio projector was released just eight months ago. Newer multimedia projectors like this one are likely to have better features.

Supports WiFi Connectivity

The Hitachi CP-WX5500 supports WiFi connectivity, unlike most of the other recently released projectors which do not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other data projectors which support WiFi connectivity to this multimedia projector and we think cheaper data projectors such as the Epson EB-585WS[plb_3357332_price] is also worth considering.

Supports Full HD Projection

The CP-WX5500 supports Full HD projection, unlike most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the CP-WX5500 which do not support Full HD projection.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other data projectors which support Full HD projection and we think cheaper projectors such as the Optoma EH490[plb_3806984_price], and the Benq MH750[plb_3850238_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The CP-WX5500 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other new projectors also have a built-in speaker.

There are a number of other projectors with a built-in speaker currently available which you might want to consider including the EH490[pl_3806984_price], or the W490[pl_3806985_price] both from Optoma or the Hitachi CP-X5550[plb_3255925_price] which is cheaper.

Very High Maximum Horizontal Synchronization

When compared to other multimedia projectors that were released in the last 12 months that we have checked, the maximum horizontal synchronization of the CP-WX5500 of 106 kilohertz is one of the highest. Across all the 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the CP-WX5500 the maximum horizontal synchronization range from 67kHz to 110kHz.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports

The CP-WX5500 is a two HDMI port multimedia projector.

Chart Edit

Fairly High RMS Rated Power

The Hitachi CP-WX5500 has one of the higher RMS rated power (16 Watts) amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. The RMS rated power of data projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-WX5500 range from 1W to 20W, and the average RMS rated power is 13W.

5 Reasons Against

Price Increase of £113.60

In the last fortnight the price of the CP-WX5500 has increased by £113.60.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Hitachi CP-WX5500 does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the CP-WX5500 also do not support 3D image projection.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a 3D image projection and we think the EH490[pl_3806984_price], or the W490[pl_3806985_price] both from Optoma or the Benq MH750[plb_3850238_price] is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

Only One USB 2.0 Port

The CP-WX5500 is a one USB 2.0 port multimedia projector.

Chart Edit

High Running Costs

Based on typical energy prices we estimate that the 1 year running cost of the CP-WX5500 is £3,237, which is in the most expensive 1% of all 47 recently released 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors.

2 Other reasons to consider the Hitachi CP-WX5500
