Summary: So, we just bought this TV last night, and I have to say, it looks incredible. The picture is so crisp and the colors are amazing. I watched LOTR with the 1080i up converter we also bought, and it looks better than it did in the theater.
Summary: After extensive research, I decided on the Hitachi 42" Plasma. Hitachi is the leader in Plasma televisions, and they show why in this set. The set gives you a 1080i signal (won't get into that), and at the time, the set was on sale for less than the Panasonic and Samsung TVs that I was comparing to.
Summary: Really nice TV, especially for the price. Lot's of configurable options and the picture looks amazing...I don't have surround sound speakers yet but the built in audio for this TV sounds nice as well.
Summary: This is my first HDTV and I couldn't be any happier. I researched HDTVs for over a year before I made my decision to purchase this model. The picture is crystal clear and the HD channels look gorgeous on it.
Summary: Just bought tis T.V. last night and was completely satisfied. All the reviews and research meant nothing when I got it into my living room. My Xbox 360 looked great. You must adjust factory settings to get full viewing experience. I fully reccomend this T.V to anyone upgrading from a standard T.V.
Summary: I bought this TV at Circuit City for $999.00. Sure there may be better Plasma TV's but this thing is awesome. I use it with with DishNetwork HD. The picture is stunning, the sound is excellent and the setup and remote contol is easy. This is my second big screen Hitachi. I've had great success.
Summary: My husband researched and had me return a different plasma tv. We went with this because it was a good price and had free shipping. It arrived and because we weren't ready to install, the shipping co left the tv in the box (normally they'll unpack take packaging) Of course always check for price...
Summary: If you click (See all my reviews) next to Mr. Hung-yen Cheng's name below you'll see that he's not talking about this product. Just that he has had an issue with an HDTV product of Hitachi's, and he's trying to slander their name and products.
Summary: BUY A SHARP AQUOS LCD - THEY ARE MY NEW, FIRST RECOMMEND! If I could do it over again I would! Let me begin by saying that I'm a technophile - work at Google currently - have worked at Oracle and Microsoft previously... I know technology!
Summary: Very solid unit with great picture. This may be nit picking, but my only complaints are: tiny channel number text, only one non-digital audio output, and the long amount of time it takes to switch between channels (although this might be true for all plasma tvs....)
