Hitachi LCD Flat Screen TV | LCD TV Review

By: Scott James

Aquiring that new TV If you are going to spend what could be considered a small fortune or at the very least a large amount of money then it would be prudent to try and make the correct decision at the outset.

The way that technology changes so quickly nowadays you would be wise to consider carefully any investment and try and ensure that it remains compliant with all possible standards.

Television over the years has taken a great number of forms from the old days of analogue Black and White, through the launch of colour television to the latest technologies known as Digital Television (DTT). There are a number of different ways to receive digital television. One of the oldest means of receiving DTV (and TV in general) is using an antenna (known as an aerial in some countries).

For the purposes of this article we want to take a look at purchasing a new Flat Screen Television and in this case the television in question is the Hitachi 55PMA550E.

The 55PMA550E is a 55in Plasma TV and currently these TV's can be found for 3500 pounds sterling or 7000 US dollars. The screen resolution is 1366 X 768 and with regards to being HD Ready the answer is yes. The Hitachi has 1 (1 RGB) scarts and the type and number of Multimedia interfaces the 55PMA550E uses is DVI and 1. The type of Tuner for this TV is Analogue and the Hitachi is available from a wide variety of outlets.

All these points being taken into consideration, how would we view the Hitachi 55PMA550E?

Well to start with our score for the picture quality is 10, and for the sound quality we would rate it at 8. Taking a look at the number of relevant connections and their availability, our score would be 10. With regards to the overall level of features, our view would be 10 and the final individual verdicts would relate to the ease of use and overall value for money and our scores here would be, 8 and 10 respectively.

The overall verdict would be that this Plasma TV has we feel got performance, style and sophistication oozing out of every connection but this has to be balanced by the fact that it is not the cheapest Plasma screen available.

With the wide range and variety of makes and models available for you to choose from it is unlikely that you will not find something to suite your taste or satisfy any budgetary constraints that you might have. You could either opt for one of the more cutting edge newer options available or stay safe and go for one of the more established options available. Either way we hope that by reading this short article you should have a slightly more informed view of the options available to you

With regards to the prices in this article we have tried in all cases to take an average across the industry from a number of well known web sites and so we ask you to bear this in mind and treat these prices as advisory only rather than absolutes.
