10 Reasons For

Supports Full HD

The CP-WU8460 supports full HD, unlike most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years which do not support full HD.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other projectors which support full HD currently available including because of it's better review score, the Epson 475Wi, or the Hitachi CP-WX8255A.

Very Bright Projector Brightness

The projector brightnesss of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the CP-WU8460 range from 100 ANSI lumens to 8,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,500 ANSI lumens. The CP-WU8460 has a quite bright projector brightness (6,000 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

WUXGA (1920x1200) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the CP-WU8460 is WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of a WXGA (1280x800) data projector, which is the most common resolution.

A WUXGA (1920x1200) projector native resolution is actually the best resolution across all multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the CP-WU8460.

The worst resolution amongst comparable types of projector is SVGA (800x600).

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

This projector supports a supported graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA)|1280 x 1024 (SXGA)|1280 x 768 (WXGA)|1280 x 800 (WXGA)|1360 x 768 (WXGA)|1400 x 1050 (SXGA+)|1440 x 900 (WXGA+)|1600 x 1200 (UXGA)|640 x 480 (VGA)|800 x 600 (SVGA), which is the most frequently supported supported graphics resolutions on projectors of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

Very Big Optical Zoom

3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the CP-WU8460 have optical zooms of between 1x and 2x. At 2 times zoom factor, the Hitachi CP-WU8460 has a very big optical zoom compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the CP-WU8460.

Chart Edit

Fairly High Horizontal Synchronization (max)

At 106 kilohertz, the Hitachi CP-WU8460 has a quite high horizontal synchronization (max) compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago. The lowest horizontal synchronization (max) of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago is 91kHz and the highest is 110kHz.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports Quantitys

The Hitachi CP-WU8460 has more HDMI ports quantitys than most of the similar spec projectors that were released around the same time as the CP-WU8460. This projector is a two HDMI ports quantity projector compared to most of the 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the CP-WU8460 which only have one HDMI ports quantity.

Chart Edit

Very Big Bulb Power

The Hitachi CP-WU8460 has one of the bigger bulb powers (365 Watts) amongst comparable spec projectors of this age. Across all the data projectors that were released more than two years ago the bulb powers range from 140W to 400W, and the average bulb power is 240W.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to it.

Chart Edit

10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rates

This projector has a 10|100 Mbit/s ethernet LAN data rates, which is typical of many projectors of a similar age and type to it.

12 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

Most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago have a built-in speaker(s), however the Hitachi CP-WU8460 does not have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Epson V11H475020 is also worth considering.

Does Not Support 3D

The CP-WU8460 does not support 3D. Most of the other projectors of this age and spec also do not support 3D.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a 3D and we think the NEC NP-M311W which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Hitachi CP-WU8460 does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the CP-WU8460 also do not support wi-Fi.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support wi-Fi including the Epson BrightLink 436Wi which also has a higher rating.

Running Costs Are Very High

The CP-WU8460 is one of the most expensive to run projectors of a comparable spec and age that we have analysed for 1 year running costs. Based on average usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the CP-WU8460 is £161.

Very Short Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

The average service life of lamp (economic mode) of similar spec multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-WU8460 is 5,700h. At only 2,500 hours, the Hitachi CP-WU8460 has a fairly short service life of lamp (economic mode) compared to most of the other projectors of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

Very Short Service Life of Lamp

Projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-WU8460 have service life of lamps of between 1,500h and 30,000h. The Hitachi CP-WU8460 has one of the shorter service life of lamps (only 2,000 hours) amongst similar spec data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Low Vertical Synchronization (max)

The lowest vertical synchronization (max) of similar spec data projectors that were released around the same time as the CP-WU8460 is 0.12kHz and the highest is 120kHz. The CP-WU8460 has a fairly low vertical synchronization (max) (only 0.12 kilohertz) compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Only One USB 2.0 Ports Quantity

Most 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the CP-WU8460 have between one and two USB 2.0 ports quantitys, including the CP-WU8460 which has one USB 2.0 ports quantity.

Chart Edit

Quite Loud Noise Level

3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the CP-WU8460 have noise levels of between 26dB and 45dB. With a noise level of 39 decibels, the CP-WU8460 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-WU8460.

If you would consider a data projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the CP-X8170 (£2,385.60) (39dB), or the CP-WX8265 (£2,456.40) (39dB) both from Hitachi.

Heavy

Projectors of this age and spec have weights of between 230g and 30kg, and the average weight is 4.9kg. The CP-WU8460 is one of the heavier 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the CP-WU8460 (8.8 kilograms) amongst data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Loud Noise Level (economic Mode)

3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the CP-WU8460 have noise level (economic mode)s of between 26dB and 35dB. With a noise level (economic mode) of 33 decibels, the CP-WU8460 has a quite loud noise level (economic mode) compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to the CP-WU8460.
