Bad points:
I swopped it for a SAMSUNG due to the dynamic contrast rate quoted for the Hitachi which was misleading 10000:1 but effectively only 1500:1 contrast- the Samsung spec was alot better (7000:1)and not disappointed but buy an HD DVD Player or BluRay to get great results as nornal TV viewed through any HD LCD TV can at times be disappointing.
