One Industry Award

The editor of PC Mag thought that this data projector was marvellous and gave it their "Editor's Choice" award.

Expert Reviews Are Good

Expert review site PC Mag scored this projector 80%.

Good Product Quality

Two people who purchased it agreed that it was good quality. Two years ago Pc Mag wrote on PC Mag “Excellent quality for data images” in their Hitachi CP-AX2503 review. Pc Mag also mentioned “Bright image with good color quality”.
