I took the faithful leap into 3D with the Hitachi LE55W806 and soon came to realize how Hitachi is so not ready for the game. Can't get a simple answer from Hitachi tech support, "Who makes the 3D glasses and where can I find them?" 3rd party makers of 3D glasses won't support Hitachi. They aren't a serious contender and vendors who make universal glasses aren't willing to spend the time to test their products with a Hitachi 3D TV. No glasses, no 3D. This TV is simply not ready for showtime. (read more)

I bought a Hitachi model 55HDS69 in 2008. We liked it when it worked, but to spend close to $3,000 and have it quit in less than 4 years is horrible. Today while watching the tv the picture went completely black. The sound still works though, which would be fine if I was blind. I am now told that it is the lower and upper buffers and that the repair is going to cost me more than $400. Can not tell you how dissappointed I am. One thing I know I will not be buying another Hitachi!! (read more)

Hitachi TV Model 37LD8500 requires two inverter boards (quoted £571) £100 more than purchase price. Hitachi UK service stated that parts can fail at any time (22 months use) and offered an insurance cover for £289 for this repair and the next 12 months which in my humble opinion is not acceptable.

18 months later it stopped working, the main circuit board was faulty. It will cost £450 to completely replace the circuit board: Hitachi sent me a letter confirming that "due to the age of the television" (18 months?) they will not assist in the repair. It will be easier and advisable to scrap the television and buy a new one. (read more)

This review is for the Hitachi 28 inch C28WF560N CRT tv.I bought it to replace my old Hitachi tv.
The battle between LCD and Plasma rages on,that's why I decided to stay with tried and tested technology.
The picture quality/colour and contrast/blacks and whites is as good as some LCD sets that I have seen.
The set is used with a Digihome hard drive recorder.The tv was purchased from Comet for under £200 inc 3 yrs warranty. (read more)

My Hitachi television set, when it worked, had a great picture. I searched around, and I was very pleased with the product until it stopped working. When the technicians had problems fixing the set I was very disappointed with how long it took to get a new TV, and how unimportant Customer service is to Hitachi. (read more)
