Hitachi Full HD 1920 X 1080
Our full HD panel displays full high-definition video in all its detail and beauty. The IPS Alpha Panel offers enhanced color reproduction, contrast, and moving images, while its wide viewing angle dazzles from any direction. Plus, its redesigned color filter reproduces an even wider range of color.
Color reproduction, contrast, moving images: the IPS Alpha Panel has improved all of these. It reduces the changes in brightness and tone that viewing from different angles sometimes causes, offering clearer images from any angle. Plus, the improved color filter greatly increases the range for color reproduction.
HD-Ready TVs need to be able to display pictures at the resolution set by the new standard. Resolution can be described either in terms of "lines of resolution," or pixels. The resolution you see on your TV depends on two factors, namely the resolution of your display and the resolution of the video signal you receive. Because video images are always rectangular in shape, there is both horizontal resolution and vertical resolution to consider.
SDTV vs HDTV signal
Standard definition digital broadcasts (SDTV) are currently available across most European countries, either via satellite, cable or over-the-air transmissions. SDTV transmissions are broadcast at 576i50 which is 576 visible lines with an interlaced scan at 50 times a second resulting in a full screen refresh rate of 25 times per second.
There are two main formats for HDTV, namely 720p (i.e. a 720 line picture progressively scanned 50 times a second) and 1080i (1080 lines interlaced at 50 cycles per second). The picture resolution of a high definition digital TV is about 4 times greater than a typical 576 line TV picture.
Vertical resolution: This is the number of horizontal lines that can be resolvedin an image from top to bottom. Digital HD television operates at a resolution of either 720 or 1080 lines. This is the mostimportant resolution as it is most noticeable tothe human eye.
Horizontal resolution: This is the number of vertical lines that can be resolved from one side of an image to the other. Horizontal resolution varies depending onthe source. The number of horizontal pixels is not quite so critical as verticalresolution as it is not as obvious to the human eye during normal viewing.

P.S. the audio is pretty good too, more on that when I try the theatre kit.
This TV was the end result of a very long and laborious trudge through many many techy reports, Corporate B.S. and consumer opinions, and I am so impressed with my purchase so far.
Yes, you can go and spend two to three hundred pounds more on a Sony or a Samsung and get a shiny, black, glossy border or a top of the range brand name on the front of your set, but seriously, dont underestimate this product.
The picture of a full HDMI 1080p output from an xbox 360 elite is at first pretty impressive and after a little bit of tweaking and fiddling with the brightness and contrast settings (which you have to do with nearly every single LCD to get a lifelike picture) the picture was breathtaking. I will be downloading a high definition movie via the xbox shortly to fully test it out as I havent been foolish enough to spend stupid amounts of money on a Blu Ray player...... yet. :-| not sure how well that would go down in the household... I have however connected a High definition Laptop to the screen via the PC cable (if you do buy this TV [which I recommend you do] and want to use the PC input function, go into the settings and on the bottom tab, move the cursor to the "PCRGB" box and press select as the instructions are a little hazy...)and the picture quality was again breathtaking, and that was only at the 720p.
The user interface is pretty simple, when you turn on the TV for the first time, you are asked whether you want to do a full channel search, and with the Freeview being built in, if you choose the digital option, all channels scanned for are automatically placed in order in the channels list with a full 7 day electronic programme guide, handy and very easy to use.
The sound is pretty fantastic too, there is a rich bass once the subwoofer function in the audio menu has been selected, and even at the loudest setting there is no loss in sound quality, I repeat NO LOSS IN SOUND QUALITY. Try it on your TV now, turn it up to the max, chances are it will distort, buzz and sound terrible. This one doesnt, if you want to connect it up to a sound system (which I was thinking of doing but now not really seeing the point of) there are plenty of outputs, as with all Hitachi products.
Another thing to mention, my lounge is not huge, but certainly not small, if you havent looked at how big a 37" TV is, then go and have a look at one in the shops before you buy, please. I didnt think of the size in comparision to the size of the lounge and when the box came off the back of the delivery van I had a pretty biiiig surprise. literally. The TV we had before was a 26" and that was big enough but unfortunately I dont think they do 1080p TVs under 37", if they do, sorry I am mistaken :-)
All in all, a brilliant TV, no problems to report so far, will keep this posted though... go on, buy it!
I would recommend this tv to anyone on a budget like I was, It is easy to set up and easy to use. Buy quickly before they all go!!!
Just Got One of these from Curry's Digital (used to be Dixons) For £499! I Was looking for 1080P in 37in and not too proud to admit was looking for the cheapest I could find, Pushed a bit and got extended warranty thrown in, Superb TV in digital mode (borrowed my mates PS3 to test it, intending to get Sky HD). Analogue reception compared to my old TV is crap but that may be the aerial (it won't even FIND BBC2). NOTE this TV does not seem to like any other equipment near it. I had my sky box close and freeview reception wea hopeless untill I moved the Sky box away (Just a std Sky box too). Picture off a computer box is everything you would expect. There is no glass in front of the screen so beware all you WII owners. Hooked straight up to my Video and DVD/HDD recorder no problem. for convert and record freaks you can record from the TV Via AV2, NO MATTER WHAT THE INPUT (Apart From AV2 OBVIOUSLY. Supports CAM for top-up TV on freeview.
