Summary: This TV was plugged in to a surge protector and when my power went out due to lightning I realized all my HDMI ports were blown out, none of them work. The rest of my TVs were fine except for this one. What a total waste of $$. Was happy until this happened... They must have bad HDMI panels...
Summary: Purchased this TV just 1 1/2 years ago from Sam's Club and the screen went all green - like green blobs. Of course, it was out of warranty and Sam's Club would not stand behind it. Also called Hitachi and they cannot do anything either. A TV should last more than 1 1/2 years.
Summary: Also bought the Sams Club model for $650. almost 2 years ago, and have no complaints, except for the audio sound since there is no room in cabinet for larger better sounding speakers, too thin LED!
Summary: Purchased a Hitachi L47x03pxw (last yrs. version of this one) dual voltage, dual system TV at a U.S. BX 18 months ago.for $900.00 One week ago the colour suddenly went wonky. People on screen look as if they are massive burn victims and the clarity is totally gone.
Summary: I also bought this model at SAMs It is special number for SAMs. The only difference I could see is that the audio output jack is a eighth inch plug in instead of the RCA jacks. Anyway I took it home and plugged it in and it is great.
Summary: I bought this TV to replace one I have had for several years. The quality of the picture is excellent. The sound is terrible, I need to purchase a sound bar to correct the problem. I originally saw this model in a Sam's Club store and was going to purchase it there, but they were out of stock.
Summary: I bought this TV because research indicated that it had one of the best built in sound systems among large flat screen sets. Most on the market now have terrible sound and require an expensive additional sound system if you want to ba able to hear the broadcast properly.
Review for the LE46S605 (not the above model, but identical)
26 November 2011
Summary: I bought the Hitachi LE46S605 from Sam's as they are sold out on Amazon and I couldn't be happier. I'm not sure what the difference is between my model and this model but according to the S704's specs they're identical. Pros: Picture- The picture is incredible.
Summary: I got this as a floor model TV at a great price ($400) in a club-store. The RealMotion 120 is great! Moderately-paced motion looks real and impresses. I don't know much about TV specs, but the problem with this one lies in fast-paced action scenes.
