"Piece of junk!"0.5 starson by toomuch2012
Pros: Decent picture. Looked nice. That's about it.
Cons: Had a loud hum from the unit which the rep said was "normal", sure, right! They refused to look. 14 months after purchase, there was a loud "pop" from the back of the unit, now no audio or video. Conveniently for Hitachi, the warranty expired.
Summary: I'll never buy another Hitachi product. Horrible service, average quality, too much money and trouble for what we got. In fact, this is my last TV of any kind. Now that the life expectancy of a TV has gone from 20 - 30 years to maybe two or three years, I have decided I do not need, nor want, television in my life. Life is too short to be sitting around watching the crap shows, on an equally crap television.
