Product Specifications

Consider the 43-inch FWX as a dramatic improvement over purchasing a 36-inch direct-view set. You get a bigger picture in a smaller, significantly lighter package, plus Hitachi's industry-leading design and projection television technology. Set it on a table, shelf or its optional matching base.
