10 Reasons For

Supports Full HD Projection

The CP-WU8460 supports Full HD projection. Most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the CP-WU8460 do not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other projectors which support Full HD projection to this data projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Hitachi CP-WX8255A is also worth considering.

Very Bright Projector Brightness

At 6,000 ANSI lumens, the CP-WU8460 has a quite bright projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that have been available for more than two years. Similar spec projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the CP-WU8460 have projector brightness of between 100 ANSI lumens and 8,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,500 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

WUXGA (1920x1200) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the CP-WU8460 is 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 actually the best resolution amongst all similar spec multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago.

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

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

This projector supports a graphics resolution of 1024 x 768 (XGA)|1280 x 1024 (SXGA)|1280 x 768 (WXGA)|1280 x 800 (WXGA)|1360 x 768 (WXGA)|1400 x 1050 (SXGA+)|1440 x 900 (WXGA+)|1600 x 1200 (UXGA)|640 x 480 (VGA)|800 x 600 (SVGA), which is typical of many data projectors of this age and type.

Chart Edit

Very Big Optical Zoom

The average optical zoom of comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the CP-WU8460 is 1.5x. The CP-WU8460 has a very big optical zoom (2 times zoom factor) compared to most of the other data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the CP-WU8460.

Chart Edit

Fairly High Maximum Horizontal Synchronization

With a maximum horizontal synchronization of 106 kilohertz, the Hitachi CP-WU8460 has a quite high maximum horizontal synchronization compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the CP-WU8460. Multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the CP-WU8460 have maximum horizontal synchronization of between 91kHz and 110kHz, and the average maximum horizontal synchronization is 97kHz.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports

The CP-WU8460 has more HDMI ports than most of the 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-WU8460. Most of the comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the CP-WU8460 only have one HDMI port, however this Hitachi projector has two HDMI ports.

Chart Edit

Very Big Lamp Power

3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the CP-WU8460 have lamp power of between 140W and 400W, and the average lamp power is 240W. When compared to other projectors of this spec and age that we have assessed, the CP-WU8460's lamp power of 365 Watts is one of the biggest.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most commonly found AC input voltage on 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to it.

Chart Edit

10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Transfer Rate

This projector has a 10|100 Mbit/s ethernet LAN data transfer rate, which is the most frequently found ethernet LAN data transfer rate on 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as it.

11 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The CP-WU8460 does not have a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the CP-WU8460 which have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most projectors of a similar age and type to the CP-WU8460 do not support WiFi connectivity. The Hitachi CP-WU8460 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

There are a number of alternative data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity that you might want to look at including the NEC NP-UM330 ($1,640.31) which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most multimedia projectors of this type and age do not support 3D image projection. The CP-WU8460 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D image projection.

There are a number of other projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might also want to consider including the NEC NP-M311W which is also higher rated.

Very Short Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

With a service life of lamp in economic mode of only 2,500 hours, the Hitachi CP-WU8460 has a quite short service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other projectors of a similar type and age to the CP-WU8460. Across all the multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the CP-WU8460 the service life of lamp in economic mode range from 230h to 20,000h.

Chart Edit

Very Short Lamp Service Life

With a lamp service life of only 2,000 hours, the CP-WU8460 has a quite short lamp service life compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that came out more than two years ago. The average lamp service life of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago is 4,400h, and the lamp service lives range from 1,500h to 30,000h.

Chart Edit

Very Low Maximum Vertical Synchronization

The average maximum vertical synchronization of data projectors of a comparable type and age to the CP-WU8460 is 97kHz, and the maximum vertical synchronization range from 0.085kHz to 120kHz. With a maximum vertical synchronization of only 0.12 kilohertz, the Hitachi CP-WU8460 has one of the lower maximum vertical synchronization amongst 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Only One USB 2.0 Port

The CP-WU8460 is a one USB 2.0 port projector. Most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years have between one and two USB 2.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Fairly Loud Noise Level

Data projectors of this age and type have noise levels of between 26dB and 45dB. With a noise level of 39 decibels, the CP-WU8460 has one of the louder noise levels amongst 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

If you don't mind having a louder noise level then you might want to look at the CP-WX8265 (39dB), or the CP-X8170 (39dB) both from Hitachi.
