With DLP finally getting competitive with LCD in the budget HD Ready projection market, LCD really needs to be on top of its game to stay in contention. Hitachi seems to acknowledge this with its new, LCD-based PJ-TX300
Now that LCD has serious competition from DLP models at the budget end of the market, its promoters can't be complacent. Hitachi's PJ-TX300 seems to meet those expectations with its £1,300 price tag, HD-ready inputs and native resolution of 1280 x 720
LCD forever seems to be playing catch-up to other DLP technologies. Perfect timing, then, for Hitachi to give the technology a shot in the arm with the successor to one of last season's finest LCD efforts.
Don't write off LCD projection technology just yet. DLP may dominatethe higher strata of the market (ie the expensive end), but Hitachiably demonstrates that there's plenty of life left in HD-ready LCD projectors
After taking one or two hard knocks recently with the arrival of some seriously good and very attractively priced DLP HD Ready projectors, LCD is once again fighting back. And we've got the latest HD-Ready Hitachi, the PJ-TX300 - yours for just £1,300
It's the joint cheapest projector in this grouptest, it claims a remarkable contrast ratio of 7000:1, and it's beautifully designed to boot. But is the award-winning Hitachi's LCD-based PJTX200 still a top performer?
The Hitachi CP-RX60 is a stylish LCD projector that offers 1024 x 768 XGA resolution for a low price that is just over the £600 mark. One oddity is that the kettle-type power cord plugs into the right-hand side, rather than the rear of the projector
Until now, Hitachi has seemingly concentrated on making accessible LCD projectors for those users wanting a one-stop solution for all their video, games console and PC needs
