4 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other similar spec projectors that have been available for the last year, the Hitachi CP-WU5500 has a built-in speaker(s).

We think you might also be interested in some of the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including cheaper projectors such as the Epson EB-585WS[plb_3357332_price], or the Hitachi CP-WX5500[plb_3397843_price].

Other multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) that you might also want to look at include the Hitachi CP-WU5505[plb_3255480_price].

WUXGA (1920x1200) Projector Native Resolution

The CP-WU5500 has a maximum resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of the most common projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800).

This multimedia projector's resolution (WUXGA (1920x1200)) is actually the best resolution amongst all 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for the last year.

An XGA (1024x768) projector native resolution is the worst resolution amongst comparable types of multimedia projector.

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

The CP-WU5500 does not support full HD, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a similar time to the CP-WU5500 also do not support full HD.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a full HD and we think the Hitachi CP-WX5500[plb_3397843_price], or the Optoma EH490[plb_3806984_price] which is also cheaper is also worth considering.
