7 Reasons For

Supports WiFi Connectivity

Unlike most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the CP-WU8451 which do not support WiFi connectivity, the CP-WU8451 supports WiFi connectivity.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors which support WiFi connectivity and we think the Epson EB-G6370 which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The CP-WU8451 supports 3D image projection, which is unusual. Most of the other multimedia projectors that came out more than a year ago do not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Supports Full HD Projection

The Hitachi CP-WU8451 supports Full HD projection, as do most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the CP-WU8451.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out around the same time as the CP-WU8451, the CP-WU8451 has a built-in speaker.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the EB-G6070W, or the EB-G6370 both from Epson which is cheaper.

Chart Edit

Two Built-In Speakers

The CP-WU8451 is a two built-in speaker projector. Most of the other projectors that have been on the market for more than a year only have one built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports

The CP-WU8451 is a two HDMI port multimedia projector.

4 Reasons Against

Very Short Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

The Hitachi CP-WU8451 has a fairly short service life of lamp in economic mode (only 3,000 hours) compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been around for more than a year. 5000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released one year ago have service life of lamp in economic mode of between 2,500h and 10,000h.

Chart Edit

Only Supports Four Video Colour Modes

The CP-WU8451 has a greater number of video colour modes than most multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to it. This Hitachi data projector supports a Dynamic video colour mode, which is the most commonly supported video colour mode supported by projectors that were launched around the same time as the CP-WU8451. The video colour modes "Blackboard", "Cinema" and "Whiteboard" are also supported by this multimedia projector.

Chart Edit

Only 625i Video Mode

This projector supports a 480i|480p|525i|576i|625i|720p|1080i|1080p video mode, which is the most commonly supported video mode on multimedia projectors that have been available for more than a year.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Lamp Power

The lamp power of multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-WU8451 range from 220W to 380W, and the average lamp power is 350W. At only 330 Watts, the Hitachi CP-WU8451 has a quite small lamp power compared to most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the CP-WU8451.

3 Other reasons to consider the Hitachi CP-WU8451

Released Over a Year Ago

This 5000:1 contrast ratio projector was released over a year ago.

Average Projector Brightness

The Hitachi CP-WU8451 has a relatively typical projector brightness (5,000 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and spec to the CP-WU8451.

Chart Edit

Average Noise Level

At 37 decibels, the Hitachi CP-WU8451 has a pretty average noise level compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that were launched more than a year ago.

We compared all the other 37dB noise level projectors to this data projector and we think cheaper projectors such as the EB-G6370, and the EB-G6070W both from Epson is also worth considering.
