“ Hitachi 32LD6600 - 32" PLATARA LCD TV - widescreen - 720p - HDTV monitor „
Sigh. A cheap LCD tv that I bought back in 2007 without researching for too much money.
What more did I expect?
It wasn't all bad - it still works at least, read more below.
First off this tv is not full HD, it's highest resolution is 720p or 1080i. Note there is a MASSIVE difference between 1080i and 1080p I won't bore you with all the statistics but safe to say if your look for a tv, make sure you go for one that has a 1080p screen luckily, being 32 inches your not likely to be sitting close enough to notice the difference.
Secondly the tv's colours are terrible, horrible and washed out - and not vibrant in the slightest, even for a tv from 2007 it's not acceptable. I use the TV mainly for playing PS3 and Xbox on and it looks pretty bad, details are hard to pick out and it's just generally not as pleasant an experience as it should be.
On the other hand the sound is fine for a tv of it's price, there isn't much bass but the mids and treble are catered for here, it sounds ... quite nice actually. It also comes with a headphones port - which might seem like a small touch, but a lot of very expensive tv's just don't have it and for online console gamers like myself it makes life so much easier just to plug in a set of headphones and get going.
The Tv doesn't handle SD content very well, it's very blocky and shows all the signs of an older generation LCD panel. Not nice.
If you can get it for cheap - and I mean cheap £50 at a cash and carry, this might be worth it for a spare room or a kids tv.
