Released Over a Year Ago

Hitachi released the CP-X8800 in March 2016.


Video

Does Not Support Full HD

The Hitachi CP-X8800 does not support full HD, unlike most of the other multimedia projectors of this spec and age.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a full HD and we think the Optoma DH1017, the Acer H6510BD (£519.99), or the Benq W1070+ are also worth considering.

Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The CP-X8800 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other comparable spec data projectors that are a similar age to this data projector also have a built-in speaker(s).

Projector

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

The dimmest projector brightness of multimedia projectors of a similar age and spec to this multimedia projector is 600 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 16,000 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of 8,000 ANSI lumens, the CP-X8800 has one of the brightest projector brightnesses amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

If this Hitachi projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to consider the PT-DW830E (£6,064.80) (8,500 ANSI lumens), or the PT-DX100 (£6,758.40) (10,000 ANSI lumens) both from Panasonic.

XGA (1024x768) Resolution

Fairly Loud Noise Level

Across all the 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as this multimedia projector the noise levels range from 27dB to 48dB, and the average noise level is 34dB. The CP-X8800 has one of the louder noise levels (37 decibels) amongst multimedia projectors of this age.

If you would consider a data projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Benq MX882UST (£1,103.65) (37dB), or the Hitachi CPWX3541 (37dB).
