Bottom Line:   
This TV has a great picture when using DVD or HD source. Picture is about the same as a none HD television when using normal satellite or cable inputs. I would definitely reccomend paying the extra for a good set of component video cables instead of using the S-Video input. The picture difference is worth the money.

Bottom Line:   
I bought this tv because I wanted to upgrade to a widescreen digital. It took a little getting used to because of the 16:9 aspect. I have had 2 of these sets delivered to my house because of video problems. The first one had white lines flickering across the tv horizontally randomly. The second one when I am using movie mode, when there is a fast scene change you see black lines flash across the set. Hitachi is telling me that this is normal and the the only time I should use this function is when I am watching a movie. Every movie that I have watched i have used movie mode and have seen these black lines. If I selct one of the other modes the "PROBLEM" goes away. I find that this is a distraction when I am watching a movie, cable, or gaming.

Did my research and went with the Hitachi over the Mitsubishi. I had the TV for a month and spent the bones on an ISF Calibration.... I was pleased before the calibration, but now the TV really shines. Great picture and color quality.

I couldn't be more pleased.

Bottom Line:   
Absolutely WONDERFUL product.

It is no wonder everyone is raving about this set
and it's picture quality.

We have a fairly large Home Theater audio system so I cannot
vouch for what I have heard is also an excellent audio system
included.

I do not want to bore anyone, just to let them know that the
GLOWING remarks, about the Hitachi Technology, build quality and
feature sets are all Very Valid.

It was a WONDERFUL buying experience !
