Hitachi CPX1 LCD projector

 

A very light projector, with interpolated resolutions up to 1600x1200 and a wide zoom, the Hitachi CPX1 is a rebadged version of the Viewsonic PJ358.

The Hitachi CPX1 gives best results in an office or on the road when used for presentations in a darkened room. Colour and video performance mean that it's not quite as convincing as a home cinema unit. And the price is high - cheaper competitors...

Hitachi CPX1 Review

 

Hitachi offer with the CPX1 a lightweight projecter that performs well within an office scenario.

Very light, two feet for stability, solid carry case, good interpolated resolutions up to 1600 x 1200, wide zoom, simple menu system

Unexceptional styling, no DVI input, wider than average, relatively poor video performance, expensive
