12 Reasons For

Supports Full HD

Unlike most of the other multimedia projectors of this spec and age which do not support full HD, the CP-WX8255A supports full HD.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors which support full HD and we think because of it's better review score, the Infocus IN3118HD[plb_2221772_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Hitachi CP-WX8255A has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other data projectors of a similar spec and age to the CP-WX8255A.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the NEC NP-M271X[plb_1525269_price] which has better reviews.

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

The dimmest projector brightness of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the CP-WX8255A is 100 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 8,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,500 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of 5,500 ANSI lumens, the CP-WX8255A has a quite bright projector brightness compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the CP-WX8255A.

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The CP-WX8255A supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's 20% more resolution than the most frequently found supported graphics resolutions of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) (which is also supported by this data projector). This projector also support a supported graphics resolutions of 768 x 576 and 1024 x 768 (XGA).

This projector's resolution (1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)) is in fact the best supported resolution across all data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the CP-WX8255A.

The worst supported resolution amongst similar types of projector is 640 x 480 (VGA).

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

The CP-WX8255A does not support 3D. Most of the other multimedia projectors of this spec and age also do not support 3D.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a 3D and we think the Optoma TW610STi[plb_1749808_price], or the Epson V11H475020[plb_2123586_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
