14 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The CP-WU8450 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other data projectors of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

WUXGA (1920x1200) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the CP-WU8450 is WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of the most common projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800).

This data projector's resolution (WUXGA (1920x1200)) is actually the best resolution amongst all data projectors of a comparable age and type to the CP-WU8450.

The worst resolution across comparable types of data projector is SVGA (800x600).

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

The CP-WU8450 has a fairly bright projector brightness (5,000 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and type. The dimmest projector brightness of comparable spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the CP-WU8450 is 100 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 8,000 ANSI lumens.

If this projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to look at the Hitachi CP-WX8255A (5,500 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.

Three Component Video (YPbPr/YCbCr) Ins

Most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for more than two years only have between one and two component video (YPbPr/YCbCr) ins, however the Hitachi CP-WU8450 has three component video (YPbPr/YCbCr) ins.

Chart Edit

Two Audio (L,R) Outs

Most data projectors of this spec and age have between one and five audio (L,R) outs, including the CP-WU8450 which has two audio (L,R) outs.

Chart Edit

Two Number of Built-In Speakerss

The Hitachi CP-WU8450 has more number of built-in speakerss than most of the 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the CP-WU8450. Most of the 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago only have one number of built-in speakers, however this Hitachi projector has two number of built-in speakerss.

Chart Edit

Three USB 2.0 Ports Quantitys

The CP-WU8450 is a three USB 2.0 ports quantity projector.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantitys

The Hitachi CP-WU8450 has more VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys than most of the data projectors of a comparable type and age to the CP-WU8450. Most of the multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to the CP-WU8450 only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys, however this projector has three VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports Quantitys

The CP-WU8450 is a two HDMI ports quantity multimedia projector. Most of the other data projectors of this age and spec only have one HDMI ports quantity.

Chart Edit

Two Audio (L,R) Ins

Most comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the CP-WU8450 have between one and two audio (L,R) ins, including the CP-WU8450 which has two audio (L,R) ins.

Chart Edit

Fairly High RMS Rated Power

The Hitachi CP-WU8450 has one of the higher RMS rated powers (16 Watts) amongst 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. The average RMS rated power of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years is 11W.

Chart Edit

Very Bright Colour Light Output

When compared to other projectors of this type and age, the CP-WU8450's colour light output of 5,000 ANSI lumens is one of the brightest. The average colour light output of multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the CP-WU8450 is 3,000 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Very Bright White Light Output

The dimmest white light output of comparable spec multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the CP-WU8450 is 2,500 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 5,000 ANSI lumens, and the average white light output is 3,200 ANSI lumens. With a white light output of 5,000 ANSI lumens, the CP-WU8450 has one of the brightest white light outputs amongst 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 120V AC input voltage, which is typical of many 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

Like most of the other data projectors of this type and age, the CP-WU8450 does not support 3D.

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

Does Not Support Full HD

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

There are a number of alternative projectors which also support full HD that you might want to consider including the Epson 475Wi, or the Hitachi CP-WX8255A which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been available for more than two years, the CP-WU8450 does not support wi-Fi.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other data projectors with a wi-Fi and we think the EB-425W, or the BrightLink 436Wi ($1,861.72) both from Epson which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Very Short Service Life of Lamp

The average service life of lamp of projectors of a comparable age and spec to the CP-WU8450 is 4,400h. At only 2,500 hours, the Hitachi CP-WU8450 has a quite short service life of lamp compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Heavy

The CP-WU8450 is fairly heavy (8.8 kilograms) compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that are a similar age to the CP-WU8450. The lightest similar spec data projector that was launched more than two years ago is 230g heavy and the heaviest is 30kg.

2 Other reasons to consider the Hitachi CP-WU8450

Released Over Four Years Ago

This data projector has been on the market for over four years.

Average Noise Level

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

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 35dB noise level projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the NEC NP-M311W.

Alternative projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the Hitachi CP-WU8440 (35dB), or the Epson EB-1400WI (35dB).
