Bottom Line:   
this tv is definitly not worth buying!!! i had it for just over a year and noticed that one of the pixels was blown so i had a little green dot to stare at for the next 3 years because it wasnt under warranty and would b too costly to repair! into the 3rd year the tv started having a red overtone to it and was terrible to watch it! eventually the lamp blew and im throwing this tv in the garbage where it belongs!!

i bought this tv about 3 years ago and i had to replace the light bulb within the first 6 months and then i have had to replace the light bulb just recently and now my light engine is gone and i have been told it is going to cost 1300 dollars to fix it is not worth it i called hitachi to talk to them about it and there is nothing they will do i heard there is a class action going on in th USA about this and i would like to know more because i paid alnost 3000 dollars and now i have to pay another 1300 plus the 300 for the light bulb, this tv is a boat anchor as far as i am concerned.

Bottom Line:   
I Bought the Hitachi 50v500 approx. 4yrs ago. The Tv stopped working after 1 month, sears repair man, which are very incompetent, could not fix and sent me a new TV same model. It lasted 3 years and now light engine ($500 part) needs to be replaced. This is common as I see many other complaints about the same part. Basic lesson for me, stay away from Hitachi products as they are very expensive for a disposable TV. I have 2 unopened lamps for this model which I need to get rid of. They are $200 each and I will sell $80 each. The TV and stand are available if anyone wants to change light engine.

All I can say is this TV is JUNK and a waste of money! I am very diappointed. Within a week of purchase the service men were at the house because of a distorted picture. They made adjustments then 6 months later the relay was replaced. And now that it is out of warranty I have a big red circle glow in the screen. I call for service and no one wants to make a house call let alone work on the TV. The light engine is bad. The television is 2 1/2 years old and broke. Hitachi says they will not help with repairs knowing that this is a problem with the TV and I had prior service records. I will never buy from Hitachi again. They don't stand behind their products!!!
