13 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the CP-WU8440, the CP-WU8440 has a built-in speaker.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the EB-1410, and the EB-1400WI both from Epson which is cheaper is also worth considering.

WUXGA (1920x1200) Native Projector Resolution

The CP-WU8440 has a maximum resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of a WXGA (1280x800) data projector, which is the most frequently found resolution.

This multimedia projector's resolution (WUXGA (1920x1200)) is in fact the best resolution amongst all projectors of this spec and age.

Amongst comparable types of multimedia projector the worst resolution is SVGA (800x600).

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

The CP-WU8440 has a fairly bright projector brightness (4,200 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the CP-WU8440. 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the CP-WU8440 have projector brightness of between 100 ANSI lumens and 8,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,500 ANSI lumens.

If this 3000:1 contrast ratio data projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to look at the Hitachi CP-X8170 (7,000 ANSI lumens).

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The CP-WU8440 does not support 3D image projection, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other data projectors that came out around the same time as the CP-WU8440 also do not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The CP-WU8440 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a similar time to the CP-WU8440 also do not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the CP-WU8440, the Hitachi CP-WU8440 does not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this projector and we think the EB-1410, or the EB-1400WI both from Epson which is also cheaper is also worth considering.
