Hitachi Launches a New Line of LCD Sets

Posted Thu Jul 1, 2010 at 06:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

Among the entry level sets is a pair of LED backlit TVs and a surprisingly cheap 55" LCD.

Hitachi may not be at the top of your brand list when shopping for a new HDTV, but if you're looking for something on the less expensive side, Hitachi's got it.

Among the assortment of televisions Hitachi is bringing to market this summer, two really stand out. The first is the UltraVision LE46S704. The LE46S704 uses LED edge lighting to illuminate the screen. It's capable of 1080p/120Hz and it's Energy Star 4.1 compliant. You can pick this 46 inch set up for $1,499.

If you're not as concerned about the backlighting, you can step up to the UltraVision L55S604. It's got four HDMI inputs with Instaport technology, which enables faster switching between inputs. It does 1080p/120Hz and it's even got CONEQ to simulate surround sound. The 55 inch S604 has an MSRP of $1,699, while the 46 inch step down runs $1,199.
