Hitachi Network-Ready LCD Projector

Hitachi's new CP-X443 compact, networked LCD projector weighs in at only 8.4 pounds and measures 13.3 by 10.4 by 3.7 inches. And for such a small product, it's got above average brightness, good color balance and four 3-watt speakers that are pretty sweet (at least for a front projector). And because it can be added to a network, you can hook it up to your wired—or potentially unwired—network and control it from wherever you are (though it can't actually pull images from a network, which is kind of dumb). A large assortment of connections and a network-control program make this a good buy at $2795.
