Video

Supports Full HD

The Hitachi CP-WU8461 supports full HD. Most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to this data projector do not support full HD.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative projectors which support full HD currently available including cheaper data projectors such as the Panasonic PT-EZ770 (£3,714.06).

Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Hitachi CP-WU8461 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other comparable spec data projectors that came out around the same time as this projector also have a built-in speaker(s).

There are a number of other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available that you might want to consider including cheaper multimedia projectors such as the Panasonic PT-EZ770 (£3,714.06).

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) to this data projector and we think the Epson EB-G6650WU (£4,402.28) is also worth considering.

Average Noise Level

WUXGA (1920x1200) Resolution

The highest resolution of the CP-WU8461 is WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of a WXGA (1280x800) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution.

This projector's resolution (WUXGA (1920x1200)) is in fact the best resolution amongst all projectors that have been around for more than two years.

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

Quite Big Bulb Power

Multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to this projector have bulb powers of between 190W and 400W. The CP-WU8461 has one of the bigger bulb powers (365 Watts) amongst 5000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age.

Quite Short Service Life of Lamp

The average service life of lamp of 5000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than two years is 3,300h, and the service life of lamps range from 2,000h to 5,000h. When compared to other 5000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago that we have assessed, the service life of lamp of the Hitachi CP-WU8461 of only 2,000 hours is one of the shortest.

Price

Expensive

After checking the price of 24 projectors of a similar age and type they range in price from £685 to £5,999. We think that this data projector looks expensive compared to other projectors of a similar age and type.
