11 Reasons For

Supports Full HD Projection

The Hitachi CP-WX8255A supports Full HD projection, unlike most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the CP-WX8255A which do not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other data projectors which support Full HD projection to this projector and we think the Infocus IN3118[plb_2221772_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The CP-WX8255A has a built-in speaker. Most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the CP-WX8255A also have a built-in speaker.

We compared this data projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the BrightLink 485Wi[pl_1778249_price], and the V11H475020[pl_2123586_price] both from Epson which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

Projectors of this age and type have projector brightness of between 100 ANSI lumens and 8,000 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of 5,500 ANSI lumens, the CP-WX8255A has a fairly bright projector brightness compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the CP-WX8255A.

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the CP-WX8255A is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's 20% more resolution than the most frequently found graphics resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) (which is also supported by this projector). In addition, this multimedia projector support a graphics resolution of 768 x 576 and 1024 x 768 (XGA).

A 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) graphics resolution is actually the best supported resolution amongst all multimedia projectors of a comparable age and spec to the CP-WX8255A.

A 640 x 480 (VGA) graphics resolution is the worst supported resolution amongst similar types of data projector.

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most projectors of a similar spec and age to the CP-WX8255A do not support WiFi connectivity. The Hitachi CP-WX8255A is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

Alternative projectors which also support WiFi connectivity that you might also want to look at include the NEC NP-UM330[plb_1528333_price], or the Epson BrightLink 436Wi[plb_1875520_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age, the CP-WX8255A does 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 Optoma TW610STi[plb_1749808_price], or the Epson V11H475020[plb_2123586_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Very High Running Costs

The CP-WX8255A has an average 1 year running cost of £154 based on average usage levels and energy prices, which makes it one of the most expensive to run projectors of this spec and age.

Very Short Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

The CP-WX8255A has a quite short service life of lamp in economic mode (only 3,000 hours) compared to most of the other projectors that have been available for a similar time to the CP-WX8255A. Across all the similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-WX8255A the service life of lamp in economic mode range from 230h to 20,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 5,800h.

Chart Edit

Very Short Lamp Service Life

The lamp service lives of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-WX8255A range from 1,500h to 30,000h. At only 2,500 hours, the Hitachi CP-WX8255A has a fairly short lamp service life compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the CP-WX8255A.

Chart Edit

Quite Loud Noise Level

At 37 decibels, the CP-WX8255A has a fairly loud noise level compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the CP-WX8255A. The average noise level of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago is 35dB, and the noise levels range from 26dB to 45dB.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 37dB noise level multimedia projectors currently available including the Epson BrightLink 436Wi[plb_1875520_price] which has better reviews.

If you would consider a projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the NEC VE281[plb_1473677_price] (35dB).
