Good Product Quality

One Hitachi CP-AW2503 reviewer thought it was good quality. Toptenreviews.com wrote in their Hitachi CP-AW2503 review in October last year “Very good data-image quality and video quality for a data projector”.

Good Sound Quality

One customer wrote in their reviews that it had good sound quality.
