12 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker

The CP-WU8450 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other projectors of this spec and age also have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

WUXGA (1920x1200) Native Projector Resolution

The Hitachi CP-WU8450 has a maximum resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of the most frequently found native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800).

This projector's resolution (WUXGA (1920x1200)) is in fact the best resolution across all similar spec projectors that came out more than two years ago.

Across similar types of projector the worst resolution is SVGA (800x600).

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

At 5,000 ANSI lumens, the CP-WU8450 has a fairly bright projector brightness compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been around for a similar time to the CP-WU8450. Across all the projectors of a similar spec and age to the CP-WU8450 the projector brightness range from 100 ANSI lumens to 8,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,500 ANSI lumens.

If this Hitachi projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to consider the Hitachi CP-WX8255A (5,500 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

Three Component Video in Ports

The Hitachi CP-WU8450 has more component video in ports than most of the projectors of a comparable age and type to the CP-WU8450. Most of the 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago only have between one and two component video in ports, however this data projector has three component video in ports.

Chart Edit

Two Audio Out Ports

The CP-WU8450 is a two audio out port projector. Most of the other comparable spec projectors that were released around the same time as the CP-WU8450 have between one and five audio out ports.

Chart Edit

Two Built-In Speakers

The CP-WU8450 is a two built-in speaker data projector. Most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type to the CP-WU8450 only have one built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports

The Hitachi CP-WU8450 is a two HDMI port multimedia projector. Most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar age and spec to the CP-WU8450 only have one HDMI port.

Chart Edit

Two Audio in Ports

The CP-WU8450 is a two audio in port projector. Most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years have between one and two audio in ports.

Chart Edit

Quite High RMS Rated Power

The CP-WU8450 has one of the higher RMS rated power (16 Watts) amongst similar spec multimedia projectors of this age. The lowest RMS rated power of comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the CP-WU8450 is 0.5W, the highest is 20W, and the average RMS rated power is 11W.

Chart Edit

Very Bright Colour Light Output

The average colour light output of projectors that were launched around the same time as the CP-WU8450 is 3,100 ANSI lumens, and the colour light outputs range from 2,500 ANSI lumens to 5,000 ANSI lumens. When compared to other projectors that were released more than two years ago, the colour light output of the Hitachi CP-WU8450 of 5,000 ANSI lumens is one of the brightest.

Chart Edit

Very Bright White Light Output

When compared to other multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the CP-WU8450, the white light output of the CP-WU8450 of 5,000 ANSI lumens is one of the brightest. Multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the CP-WU8450 have white light outputs of between 2,500 ANSI lumens and 5,000 ANSI lumens, and the average white light output is 3,200 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 120V AC input voltage, which is the most commonly found AC input voltage on projectors that are a similar age to it.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The CP-WU8450 does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-WU8450 also do not support 3D image projection.

We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D image projection to this data projector and we think the NEC NP-M311W which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Hitachi CP-WU8450 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other data projectors that were launched around the same time as the CP-WU8450 also do not support Full HD projection.

There are a number of alternative data projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might also want to consider including the Hitachi CP-WX8255A which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most projectors of a similar age and type to the CP-WU8450 do not support WiFi connectivity. The Hitachi CP-WU8450 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

We think you might also be interested in alternative data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the NEC NP-UM330 ($935.61).

Very Short Lamp Service Life

Across all the multimedia projectors of this age and spec the lamp service lives range from 1,500h to 30,000h, and the average lamp service life is 4,400h. At only 2,500 hours, the CP-WU8450 has a fairly short lamp service life compared to most of the other data projectors of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

Heavy

Across all the 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a similar time to the CP-WU8450 the weights range from 230g to 30kg, and the average weight is 4.9kg. When compared to other multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the CP-WU8450, the CP-WU8450's weight of 8.8 kilograms is one of the heaviest.

Chart Edit

Very Wide

When compared to other multimedia projectors of this age and spec that we have checked, the CP-WU8450's width of 498 millimeters is one of the widest. The narrowest multimedia projector of this age and spec is 120mm wide, the widest is 510mm, and the average width is 360mm.

2 Other reasons to consider the Hitachi CP-WU8450

Released Over Four Years Ago

Hitachi released the CP-WU8450 over four years ago.

Average Noise Level

At 35 decibels, the CP-WU8450 has a pretty typical noise level compared to most of the other projectors of this age and spec.

Alternative 35dB noise level projectors currently available that you might want to look at include the NEC VE281 which has better reviews.

If you would consider a data projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Hitachi CP-WU8440 ($5,648.99) (35dB).
