6 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Hitachi CP-WU8700 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other latest 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors also have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 7,000 ANSI lumens, the Hitachi CP-WU8700 has a quite bright projector brightness compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the CP-WU8700. Across all the latest 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors the projector brightness range from 450 ANSI lumens to 10,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 4,900 ANSI lumens.

If this Hitachi data projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to consider the Vivitek DU8090Z (8,000 ANSI lumens and cheaper).

WUXGA (1920x1200) Native Projector Resolution

The CP-WU8700 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 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for a similar time to the CP-WU8700.

An XGA (1024x768) native projector resolution is the worst resolution across comparable types of multimedia projector.

Very Big Matrix Size

The matrix size of the CP-WU8700 of 0.76 inches is one of the biggest amongst comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the CP-WU8700. Across all the recently released data projectors the matrix sizes range from 0.45" to 0.79", and the average matrix size is 0.66".

Chart Edit

Two Built-In Speakers

The CP-WU8700 is a two built-in speaker projector.

Chart Edit

Very Big Lamp Power

When compared to other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for a similar time to the CP-WU8700 that we have assessed, the lamp power of the Hitachi CP-WU8700 of 430 Watts is one of the biggest. The average lamp power of latest projectors is 280W.

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other projectors that were launched around the same time as the CP-WU8700, the CP-WU8700 does not support Full HD projection.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the Vivitek DU8090Z which is also cheaper is also worth considering.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the CP-WU8700 do not support 3D image projection. The CP-WU8700 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Chart Edit

Very Short Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

With a service life of lamp in economic mode of only 4,000 hours, the CP-WU8700 has one of the shorter service life of lamp in economic mode amongst data projectors of this age. The average service life of lamp in economic mode of similar spec projectors that were released in the last 12 months is 9,000h.

Chart Edit

Very Short Lamp Service Life

At only 3,000 hours, the CP-WU8700 has a fairly short lamp service life compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the CP-WU8700. Across all the recently released similar spec projectors the lamp service lives range from 2,500h to 30,000h.
