Hitachi UT32MH70U

  • Conclusion: This was one of the first wafer-thin screens available in the UK, and while the likes of Sony, Samsung and Philips are now getting in on the action by launching their own skinny, wall-friendly screens, this remains the most affordable. That said, aside from its paper-like dimensions – and the fact it currently comes with a free hard disk recorder – there’s no real reason to buy this over rival models.
  • Pros: A startling 35mm in depth, this ultra-thin screen is designed with wall mounting in mind. It’s actually a monitor rather than a TV, but Hitachi is currently pairing it with a free Media Station box that delivers not only twin Freeview tuners but also a 250GB hard drive recorder and three HDMI inputs.
  • Cons: Impressively skinny this may be, but performance-wise the Hitachi is fairly average, delivering lacklustre contrast, limited black levels and sound that is merely decent without ever truly impressing. A bit like James Blunt then. Actually, we’re probably doing the Hitachi a disservice there.
