14 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

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

Chart Edit

WUXGA (1920x1200) Projector Native Resolution

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

This projector's resolution (WUXGA (1920x1200)) is actually the best resolution amongst all data projectors of a similar spec and age to the CP-WU8440.

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

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 4,200 ANSI lumens, the CP-WU8440 has a quite bright projector brightness compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this spec and age. The projector brightnesss of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago range from 100 ANSI lumens to 8,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,500 ANSI lumens.

Projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth looking at include the CP-WX8265[pl_1900979_price] (6,500 ANSI lumens), or the CP-X8170[pl_1900980_price] (7,000 ANSI lumens) both from Hitachi.
