Energy

Running Costs Are OK

The CP-WU8451 is typical compared to the other 68 similar spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than two years that we have looked at for running costs. Based on typical energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the CP-WU8451 will cost £157 over 1 year to run.


Other

Released Over Two Years Ago

This 5000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projector was released in April 2015.


Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The CP-WU8451 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and spec.

There are a number of alternative projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might want to consider including cheaper projectors such as the PT-VZ575, or the PT-VZ570 both from Panasonic.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the NEC PA522 (£1,999) is also worth considering.

Projector

WUXGA (1920x1200) Resolution

The highest resolution of the Hitachi CP-WU8451 is WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of the most common projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800).

This projector's resolution (WUXGA (1920x1200)) is actually the best resolution across all comparable spec multimedia projectors that are a similar age to this projector.

The worst resolution amongst similar types of projector is XGA (1024x768).

Supports Full HD

The Hitachi CP-WU8451 supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched more than two years ago do not support full HD.

There are a number of other projectors which support full HD currently available which you might want to consider including cheaper multimedia projectors such as the PT-VZ575, or the PT-VZ570 both from Panasonic.

Performance

Average Noise Level

The CP-WU8451 has a relatively standard noise level (37 decibels) compared to most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for more than two years.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 37dB noise level projectors currently available including cheaper projectors such as the PT-VZ575, or the PT-VZ570 both from Panasonic.

Projectors with a louder noise level that might be worth looking at include the NEC PA522 (£1,999) (39dB).
