Very Big Bulb Power
3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for a comparable time to this multimedia projector have bulb powers of between 140W and 400W. When compared to other data projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to this multimedia projector, the Hitachi CP-WU8460's bulb power of 365 Watts is one of the biggest.
Very Short Service Life of Lamp
With a service life of lamp of only 2,000 hours, the Hitachi CP-WU8460 has a fairly short service life of lamp compared to most of the other latest multimedia projectors. 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as this projector have service life of lamps of between 2,000h and 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp is 4,500h.
Has a Handheld Remote Control
The Hitachi CP-WU8460 has a handheld remote control. Most of the other similar spec projectors that came out around the same time as this data projector also have a handheld remote control.
Does Not Have a DVI Port
Like most of the other projectors that are a similar age to this data projector, the CP-WU8460 does not have a DVI port.

WUXGA (1920x1200) Resolution
The highest resolution of the CP-WU8460 is WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of a WXGA (1280x800) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution.
This multimedia projector's resolution (WUXGA (1920x1200)) is actually the best resolution across all 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as this data projector.

The projector brightnesses of 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as this projector range from 100 ANSI lumens to 8,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,300 ANSI lumens. The projector brightness of the CP-WU8460 of 6,000 ANSI lumens is one of the brightest amongst 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as this multimedia projector.
Released Over Four Years Ago
It was March 2013 when Hitachi released the CP-WU8460.
