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. Poor quality; poor customer service.
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! One reason I chose it was for the RCA output Left/Right Audio plugs, so the old surround system could still be used and not need new optical system. Headphone output 1/8" jack helps when insomnia happens and I wont wake the spouse...
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. The screen looks as if there is liquid behind the glass when the telly is switched on. Rang up Hitachi and they claimed they could be of no assistance as the tv was purchased outside of the U.S.!
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. The only adjustment I made was after two days, I took the color intensity down a little. Picture 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. I was happy to find it here on ebay for a comparable price. So far, other than the sound, I am very happy with this model.
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. This one does, in fact, have fairly good sound.
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. I also own a 42" Phillips LCD and the picture quality is night and day. Watching HD cable (1080i) is a new experience for me with this LED tv. When watching HD movies on cable the quality is almost too good.
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. It sort of blurs the movement which is a shame because most of what I watch is action movies. The colors are bright and the darks are rich.
