It was January 2016 when Hitachi released the CP-WU5500.

Does Not Support Full HD

The CP-WU5500 does not support full HD. Most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for more than a year do support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support full HD including the NEC U321H (£1,382.23), or the Benq W3000 (£1,199); or the Hitachi CP-WX5500 (£1,162.31).

Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Hitachi CP-WU5500 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to this data projector.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the NEC U321H (£1,382.23), or the Benq W3000 (£1,199) which both of have better reviews.

We compared all the other projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think the Hitachi CP-WU5505 (£1,662.35) is also worth considering.

Projector

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as this projector have projector brightnesses of between 600 ANSI lumens and 16,000 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of 5,200 ANSI lumens, the CP-WU5500 has one of the brighter projector brightnesses amongst multimedia projectors of this age.

WUXGA (1920x1200) Resolution

The CP-WU5500 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.

This multimedia projector's resolution (WUXGA (1920x1200)) is actually the best resolution amongst all projectors that have been available for a comparable time to this projector.

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