Delivery is often very quick via Amazon.com and once you take the Hitachi TV out of the box it is very easy to set-up and you’ll get to enjoy the great picture very soon. Made to reflect off the wall behind it, sound quality via the Dolby Digital/ MTS Stereo/ SAP and 8 watts x 2 speakers with equaliser and surround sound features seems to be just fine- loud and clear although lacking in bass for a relatively low cost Full HD TV and you can always use a sound bar for much better sound but for everyday TV watching this may not be necessary unless you want full-on super sound. It is not a Smart TV but is ‘Smart TV’ capable so you will not be paying for those Smart TV functions that really add to the price. Backlight frequency is the number of times per second the LED backlight flashes, which is 120 in this case. In the box you will find the Hitachi TV, remote control, batteries, owner’s manual and quick start guide and 1 year limited parts and labor warranty. This is a great basic well-built TV to get if you want to upgrade your old TV to something with better picture quality that offers very decent value for money without paying a lot.
