Released Over a Year Ago

This projector has been on the market since March 2016.


Video

Supports Full HD

The CP-WU8600 supports full HD. Most of the other similar spec data projectors that were launched more than a year ago also support full HD.

Other projectors which support full HD currently available that you might want to look at include the WU515T (£2,853.60), or the WU515 (£2,758.80) both from Optoma and both of which are cheaper.

We compared this data projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a full HD and we think the Sony VPL-FHZ57 (£2,885.95) is also worth considering.

Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Hitachi CP-WU8600 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as this projector also have a built-in speaker(s).

It may also be worth considering one of the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the Optoma WU515T (£2,853.60), or the Hitachi CP-WX8750 (£2,798.40) both of which are cheaper.

It is worth considering other projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Optoma ZH300UW (£3,846).

Projector

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as this projector have projector brightnesses of between 600 ANSI lumens and 16,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 4,100 ANSI lumens. The CP-WU8600 has one of the brighter projector brightnesses (6,000 ANSI lumens) amongst similar spec projectors of this age.

We compared this data projector to all the other 6,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors and we think the WU515 (£2,758.80), and the WU515T (£2,853.60) both from Optoma and both of which are cheaper are also worth considering.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to look at the Hitachi CP-WX8750 (£2,798.40) (7,500 ANSI lumens and cheaper).

WUXGA (1920x1200) Resolution

The highest resolution of the CP-WU8600 is WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of the most frequently found projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800).

This projector's resolution (WUXGA (1920x1200)) is in fact the best resolution amongst all 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to this projector.

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

High Running Costs

The average running cost of the CP-WU8600 is £186 over 1 year based on typical energy prices and usage levels, which is in the most expensive 9% of all 115 data projectors of a comparable spec and age.


Performance

Average Noise Level

The CP-WU8600 has a relatively typical noise level (35 decibels) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than a year.

Alternative projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the WU515 (£2,758.80) (28dB and cheaper), or the WU515T (£2,853.60) (28dB and cheaper) both from Optoma.
