One Hitachi CP-DH300 reviewer who purchased the Hitachi CP-DH300 concluded that it was good at displaying high definition TV.

Good 3D Picture Quality

One Hitachi CP-DH300 reviewer mentioned in their reviews that this projector had a good 3D picture quality. Expert website Businesstoday.intoday.in said “The Hitachi CP DH 300 is a full HD and 3D projector” in their review.
