5 Reasons For

Supports Wi-Fi

The Hitachi CP-WX5500 supports wi-Fi, which is unusual. Most of the other latest 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors do not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Supports Full HD

The Hitachi CP-WX5500 supports full HD. Most of the other projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-WX5500 do not support full HD.

We compared all the other projectors which support full HD to this multimedia projector and we think the Optoma EH490[plb_3806984_price], and the Benq MH750[plb_3996044_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Hitachi CP-WX5500 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other data projectors that were released in the last year also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this data projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Optoma EH490[plb_3806984_price], and the Epson EB-580S[plb_3357331_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Epson EB-585WS[plb_3357332_price].

Very High Horizontal Synchronization (max)

The lowest horizontal synchronization (max) of new similar spec projectors is 67kHz and the highest is 110kHz. When compared to other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-WX5500, the Hitachi CP-WX5500's horizontal synchronization (max) of 106 kilohertz is one of the highest.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports Quantitys

The CP-WX5500 is a two HDMI ports quantity data projector. Most of the other similar spec projectors that were launched in the last year have between one and two HDMI ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Price Has Recently Increased by £102.32

The CP-WX5500 has increased in price by £102.32 in the last 59 days.

Does Not Support 3D

Like most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the CP-WX5500, the CP-WX5500 does not support 3D.

There are a number of other projectors which also support 3D which you might also want to consider including the Optoma EH490[plb_3806984_price], or the Benq MH750[plb_3996044_price] which is also cheaper.

Very Low Vertical Synchronization (max)

The vertical synchronization (max)s of comparable spec projectors that came out in the last year range from 0.12kHz to 100kHz, and the average vertical synchronization (max) is 65kHz. The CP-WX5500 has one of the lower vertical synchronization (max)s (only 0.12 kilohertz) amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantity

The Hitachi CP-WX5500 is a one VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity data projector. Most of the other similar spec projectors that were launched in the last 12 months have between one and three VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Only One USB 2.0 Ports Quantity

The Hitachi CP-WX5500 is a one USB 2.0 ports quantity projector. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the CP-WX5500 have between one and two USB 2.0 ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Running Costs Are High

The average running cost of the CP-WX5500 is £3,237 over 1 year based on typical usage levels and energy prices, which makes it one of the more expensive to run 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out in the last 12 months.
