Hitachi CPX4 review


An entertainment projector with features for the office too

Easy setup ; Good image

Poor contrast ratio ; No HDMI

A good business projector but doesn't quite have the credentials to be used for the home cinema setup you have been wanting

Great Projector for the price


I am very happy with this purchase. For what the projector was made for: business... the product earns 5/5 stars. As for movies, even with my pickiness over the contrast ratio and slight bluriness in motion, because of the low price, I give the...

Very easy to set up. Excellent for viewing pictures / slideshows on a bigger scale. While this projector is under the business projector category, it holds up well through movies. So far I have watched two rather lengthy movies and have had no...

The projector is slightly noisy, but this is to be expected in any projector. Another con is that the contrast ratio is only 500:1. This is noticeable while watching movies as there isn't a terrific value scale

Great for the price~!


If it was couple hundred dollars cheeper it would be perfect. However, I would still buy it.

It is really bright and clear. It has short throw lens on it, so if you have small space, this will be the perfect projector for you. The wireless is something that others don't have

It is little bit louder for its size but overall I am loving it

Product Specifications

The CPX4 offers networking capability, allowing for easy maintenance and monitoring. Through a wired or wireless LAN connection, an AV/IT administrator can monitor and diagnose the condition of every projector on the network. With Hitachi's proprietary My Image functionality, AV/IT administrators can transfer still images, such as emergency alerts, from a PC to each projector on the network. When the My Image function is utilized, the images are automatically displayed on all the projectors, including ones that are not in use at the time. This is ideal for applications in which multiple projectors are networked across a large space, such as a school, campus or large corporate environment. The CPX4 is also enabled to display content via USB storage devices, SD cards or HDD media players, allowing for PC-less presentation. The CPX4 also enables easy setup with its Quick Start function, automatic vertical keystone correction, and resolution setting.
