Hitachi Performa CP-RS55


The Hitachi Performa CP-RS55 projector lowers the price bar with a street price of $900 or less, but many users will notice some of the compromises that were made along the way.

Inexpensive. Simple design. Auto-sync button on remote control.

Limited feature set. No optical zoom. Some image-quality flaws. Fairly noisy.

Hitachi CP-RS55


Very good projector, however the user manual is only good for the projector itself. Needed to call helpline to learn how to set it up with laptop.

No audio line supplied with projector, yet 3 different mains supply.
