10 Reasons For

Supports Full HD

The CP-WU8460 supports full HD, unlike most of the other data projectors of this age and type which do not support full HD.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which support full HD to this projector and we think the Epson 475Wi, and the Hitachi CP-WX8255A which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Very Bright Projector Brightness

The CP-WU8460 has one of the brighter projector brightnesss (6,000 ANSI lumens) amongst similar spec multimedia projectors of this age. Projectors that have been around for around the same time as the CP-WU8460 have projector brightnesss of between 100 ANSI lumens and 8,000 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

WUXGA (1920x1200) Projector Native Resolution

The CP-WU8460 has a maximum resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of a WXGA (1280x800) projector, which is the most common resolution.

This data projector's resolution (WUXGA (1920x1200)) is in fact the best resolution amongst all data projectors of this type and age.

A SVGA (800x600) projector native resolution is the worst resolution amongst similar types of data projector.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

This multimedia projector supports a supported graphics resolutions 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 the most frequently supported supported graphics resolutions on multimedia projectors of a similar spec and age to it.

Chart Edit

Very Big Optical Zoom

Across all the 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the CP-WU8460 the optical zooms range from 1x to 2x, and the average optical zoom is 1.5x. The optical zoom of the Hitachi CP-WU8460 of 2 times zoom factor is one of the biggest amongst data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the CP-WU8460.

Chart Edit

Fairly High Horizontal Synchronization (max)

The average horizontal synchronization (max) of projectors that have been on the market for more than two years is 98kHz. The CP-WU8460 has a fairly high horizontal synchronization (max) (106 kilohertz) compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the CP-WU8460.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports Quantitys

Most of the other projectors that were released around the same time as the CP-WU8460 only have one HDMI ports quantity, however the CP-WU8460 has two HDMI ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Very Big Bulb Power

The bulb powers of data projectors of this type and age range from 140W to 400W, and the average bulb power is 240W. With a bulb power of 365 Watts, the CP-WU8460 has one of the bigger bulb powers amongst multimedia projectors of this age.

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 comparable age to it.

Chart Edit

10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rates

This projector has a 10|100 Mbit/s ethernet LAN data rates, which is the most frequently found ethernet LAN data rates on comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

11 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Hitachi CP-WU8460 does not have a built-in speaker(s), unlike most of the other projectors of this age and spec which have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Epson EB-425W which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support 3D

Like most of the other projectors of this age and spec, the CP-WU8460 does not support 3D.

Other data projectors which also support 3D that you might also want to consider include the NEC NP-M311W which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the CP-WU8460, the CP-WU8460 does not support wi-Fi.

There are a number of other projectors which also support wi-Fi that you might also want to consider including the EB-425W, or the BrightLink 436Wi ($1,861.72) both from Epson which is also higher rated.

Very Short Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

With a service life of lamp (economic mode) of only 2,500 hours, the CP-WU8460 has a quite short service life of lamp (economic mode) compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years. The service life of lamp (economic mode)s of data projectors of this age and spec range from 230h to 20,000h, and the average service life of lamp (economic mode) is 5,700h.

Chart Edit

Very Short Service Life of Lamp

The CP-WU8460 has a fairly short service life of lamp (only 2,000 hours) compared to most of the other data projectors of this type and age. The service life of lamps of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the CP-WU8460 range from 1,500h to 30,000h.

Chart Edit

Very Low Vertical Synchronization (max)

With a vertical synchronization (max) of only 0.12 kilohertz, the CP-WU8460 has one of the lower vertical synchronization (max)s amongst similar spec projectors of this age. The vertical synchronization (max)s of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the CP-WU8460 range from 0.12kHz to 120kHz, and the average vertical synchronization (max) is 100kHz.

Chart Edit

Only One USB 2.0 Ports Quantity

The Hitachi CP-WU8460 is a one USB 2.0 ports quantity multimedia projector.

Chart Edit

Fairly Loud Noise Level

Multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the CP-WU8460 have noise levels of between 26dB and 45dB, and the average noise level is 35dB. At 39 decibels, the CP-WU8460 has a quite loud noise level compared to most of the other projectors of a similar type and age to the CP-WU8460.

If you are not worried about having a louder noise level then you might also want to look at the CP-X8170 (39dB), or the CP-WX8265 (39dB) both from Hitachi.
