Hitachi PJ-TX100 Projector Review

 

LCD projectors have been a favorite recommendation of mine for some time. While I love the deeper black associated with most DLP models, the lens shift functionality and lack of rainbows make LCD recommendations easy. Hitachi is not a manufacturer I...

Very clear picture – excellent optics ; Basic horizontal & vertical lens shift ; Motorized Iris control ; Backlit remote control ; Versatile inputs (including DVI-HDCP) ; 1080p compatible ; Sleek, high-tech looking chassis ; Bright

Intrusive fan noise ; Somewhat confusing menu system ; Poor (240p) deinterlacing via DVI-D at 480i

The Hitachi PJ-TX100 has a cyclopean lens that will give other projectors feelings of inadequacy. More than once, I expected it to pivot toward me and blink menacingly. Have you ever seen someone blink menacingly? It's scary stuff. As you can see in...

Color was good. The PJ-TX100's gray-scale tracking was great after calibration, and its color points looked closer to accurate with actual video material than the measurements claim. In yet another level of adjustability, the PJ-TX100 auto-adjusts the...

Hitachi PJTX100 UltraVision front LCD projector

 

As quickly as it had appeared, the Home 1 vanished and was replaced by the PJTX100, which I first saw at Hitachi's East Coast line show in late May of 2004. I soon procured a review sample, and it was obvious from the first time I powered it up that...

Hitachi PJ-TX100

 

I bought the Hitachi as backup to my Panasonic AE900U but I now consider them equal after a month. The Hitachi PJTX100 is a better projector for dark films and scenes and the Panny for lighter fims and scenes. The Hitachi and Panny both scale well with...

Good pics out of the box. Custom 6500 color w/Deep Black awesome. Exceptional Optics

Manual left out 1080P capable w/3-2 pulldown for awesome 720P pics

I am glad I own this projector. It has much better picture quality than any of the plasma tvs I looked at, and at a fration of the price. This projector was truly designed for high definition home theater. There are plenty of settings to attain the...

Excellent clarity, lovely blacks reproduced, and the lens system is amazining

Non really - other than the fan still creates enough noise to hinder your enjoyment of quite scenes

If this projector doesn't make you sit up and pay attention, nothing will. Obviously crafted to be a home projector from the ground up, its enormous 1.6x zoom lens is its most striking visual feature

A truly affordable HDTV projector, Excellent resolution, Very quiet operation, Great film/data quality after fiddling

It's a big, bulky unit, It can be tricky to get the best out of it

The Hitachi doesn't claim to specialise - and doesn't have to. It's great at everything

At just $3999 at the time of writing, the PJ-TX100 offers one of the best price/performance ratios around. And it looks good too. A stylishly sloping ...

Great value for money, nice contrast for an LCD

Lacking details in some scenarios, some motion lag

One of the best value for money projectors on the market.

A host of picture adjustment features allow the PJTX100 to be properly calibrated for any home theater environment or incoming source signal.
