Hitachi CP-RX60 review


A low cost projector that packs a punch

Heat and noise management ; Price

Low contrast ratio

We feel that this projector offers a stunning array of features at an absurdly low price

Hitachi CP-RX60


This portable projector offers solid performance at an attractive price, but it compromises on features.

Better-than-average image quality

Fixed-focus lens gives less flexibility

The Hitachi CP-RX60's offers good image quality at a low price; but it lacks the setup flexibility and other features that competing models provide.

Better-than-average image quality

Fixed-focus lens gives less flexibility

Good image quality and a low price are this projector's strong suits, but don't look for much beyond basic features.
