This projector has been on the market since April 2017.


Video

Supports Full HD

The CP-WX5500 supports full HD, unlike most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for more than a year which do not support full HD.

We compared all the other data projectors which support full HD to this projector and we think the Benq W3000 (£1,199) which has better reviews; or the NEC M403H (£1,136), and the Benq MH856UST (£1,150.30) which is cheaper are also worth considering.

Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Hitachi CP-WX5500 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other data projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to this multimedia projector also have a built-in speaker(s).

We think you might also be interested in some of the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including a cheaper multimedia projector such as the NEC M403H (£1,136), or the Benq MH856UST (£1,150.30) or you might consider a better rated multimedia projector such as the Benq W3000 (£1,199).

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

The dimmest projector brightness of 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as this data projector is 600 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 16,000 ANSI lumens. The CP-WX5500 has one of the brighter projector brightnesses (5,200 ANSI lumens) amongst projectors of this age.

WXGA (1280x800) Resolution

This multimedia projector has a projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is the most commonly found projector native resolution on comparable spec projectors that have been around for more than a year.

Networking

Supports Wi-Fi

The CP-WX5500 supports Wi-Fi, unlike most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as this data projector which do not support Wi-Fi.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative projectors which support Wi-Fi currently available including the PT-VW355N (£939.76), or the PT-VX425N (£886.33) both from Panasonic which is cheaper.

What is Wi-Fi? Less Chart Hide Chart Edit

Has an Ethernet LAN

The CP-WX5500 has an Ethernet LAN. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched more than a year ago also have an Ethernet LAN.

Lamps

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp

At 6,000 hours, the CP-WX5500 has a fairly long service life of lamp compared to most of the other projectors of a similar type and age to this data projector. The average service life of lamp of 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released one year ago is 5,900h, and the service life of lamps range from 1,500h to 30,000h.

Quite Big Bulb Power

The bulb powers of similar spec data projectors that have been available for more than a year range from 170W to 430W. With a bulb power of 300 Watts, the Hitachi CP-WX5500 has one of the bigger bulb powers amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age.

Performance

Has an On Screen Display (OSD)

The CP-WX5500 has an On Screen Display (OSD), as do most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that came out more than a year ago.

Chart Hide Chart Edit

Quite Loud Noise Level

With a noise level of 38 decibels, the CP-WX5500 has a quite loud noise level compared to most of the other data projectors of a similar age and spec to this data projector. Across all the projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to this multimedia projector the noise levels range from 27dB to 48dB.

There are a number of alternative 38dB noise level multimedia projectors currently available which you might also want to look at including the Hitachi CP-X5550 (£1,059.60) which is cheaper.

Projectors with a louder noise level that might be worth considering include the Epson 1970w (39dB and cheaper), or the Benq MH856UST (£1,150.30) (37dB and cheaper).

Energy

Running Costs Are High

Based on typical energy prices we estimate that the CP-WX5500 will cost £3,237 over 1 year to run, which makes it one of the more expensive to run projectors of a comparable type and age.
