4 years, 3 houses, still works like a charm

Summary: title pretty much sums everything up. I'm no tv geek nor did I really dig too deep on the specs when I purchased this TV. But the fact that I purchased this as the display/floor model and have no burnt out pixels or anything else happen that best buy employees insisted was going to happen requiring me to purchase their warranty, I'm extremely satisfied with my purchase and felt the need to write my first ever review on amazon to balance the ratings out from the other...
Summary: This television has been nothing but trouble. The screen has been "greening-out" for varying lengths of time ever since we've had it--less than 2 years. It has been in the shop since early July (3 MONTHS) and they still can't figure out what's wrong. One part had to be fabricated in Japan--that took 6 weeks. Another part is now "on order". What a joke! For $2000 you would expect a better quality product.
Summary: This is an awesome set, great picture in HD, and not bad on standard definition! I kind of took a chance on this as I could not find any information on response time, and I know the response time spec is nothing to really go off of anyways because there is no regulation on the perimeters for this stat. Regardless I had to work to see any motion blur on games, and I'm not even sure if it's more than just an effect when turning quickly.
Summary: My fiance and I bought a 40inch Hitachi TV 2 years ago. Since then it has broken down twice and cost as much to repair as buying a new TV. Both times requiring "new parts", the first time $500 dollars and now it is in the shop again for the third time!! Hitachi should give us a f***ing refund for their sh**y products that we thought was such a good deal and ended up being a very expensive TV. It is going in the trash cause that's what their products are Trash!
Summary: I bought this tv and it is great I love the 120 hz it removes any motion blur plus it really helps because it allows movies to be viewed with their natural 24 fps. Hitachi also offers many great features like 1.5 inch thin display. Highly recommend.
