I recieved this television as a gift and to be honest was a little disappointed as i had asked for money towards a television and planned to go a little higher up the market than hitachi!
However i was pleasantly surprised, considering its place in the price range of the tv market i found it to be a brilliant performer.
Price: As far as i know it was bought on special offer from argos or somewhere similar for a very reasonable sub £300 price.
Looks: Personaly i'm not to fussed with how a television looks but i think this design is fairly sophisticated and the gloss finish and simple lines really gives the impression of a higher priced machine.
Picture: I only use it for standard digital tv (it has built in tuner) and standard dvds so don't really utilise the hd. However i do on occasion hook it up to my laptop (very simple one audio cable and one vga if you don't have hdmi on your laptop) and the resolution was great streaming HD programs from iplayer.
Sound: This is the part that surprised me most i couldn't believe how good the sound was considering its price! There is not much adjustment features on the sound but for general purposes it sounds great.
