Summary: I bought this TV in February 08 and since then have had Hitachi service people involved as well as the retailer with a problem relating to a severe echo/delay in any of the A/V inputs. 1st item was a portable DVD player that we've used on all our other TV sets. But when we plug it into the Hitachi P50XR01U, because of a very bad echo/delay from the TV's internal speakers the DVD is unuseable.
Pros: The trim plus the rotating stand
Cons: virtually Un-useable A/V in/Outputs for audio devices
